I’m looking forward to seeing TY do his thing this year.
In some ways, he reminds me of Marvin; great hands, good route-runner, gets open and he’s smart. He may protect himself against vicious hits but Marvin did the same. Maybe he doesn’t have the yards that some #1s have but that may be a product of a system that spreads the ball around. Some call him average or mediocre. If that’s what average or mediocre looks like, I’ll take it!
Pacers are an amazing organization IMO. They’ve assembled competitive teams for most of the last 25 years with very few high draft picks and not much FA draw to the square city in the middle of a cornfield.
They stink because of injury. I’m pretty bullish in them assuming a return to the court for all these injured guys. Are you?
In one of the posts I’ve said it’s possible that the Colts are revolutionizing football which happens every so often. It’s not likely statistically because these type of changes happen once or twice a decade or so.
I said think the rules dictate that the passing game is the most efficient way to score.
One thing that might favor such a revolution, is the fact that since the rules are set up for passing success, teams have adjusted their personnel characteristics, smaller LBs, nickel base ds. It’s possible that emmit smith era emphasis will come back. I doubt it though. You still are going to need to throw it into the end zone.
