Personally, I would rather give up less to trade to the middle of the first round and draft James Young.
I am not sure what assets we really have to get into the first round other than future picks. Maybe give up a future top 10 protected pick and Pierre to get into the mid-first round. Since thi...

I watched the first 3 episodes last night. My random thoughts:
- I really enjoy the music and look of the show. The Eurythmics type heavy synth music gives it a certain feel that is probably my favorite aspect so far.
- The main character has excellent charisma, and the fact that he is a comp...

I don't think Brooks will get fired, but he should.
Coaches get fired way too easily these days in all sports, but Brooks just isn't a good coach and all you have to do is watch them play to figure it out.
The lack of offensive sets and creativity is pathetic. I can't think of a greater cont...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Will Johnny O'Bryant III have an NBA career resembling Bass or Baby? - BearTiger on 4/23/14 at 12:56 pm|
Johnny is too slow to succeed in the NBA IMO.
On defense, he is too slow to defend the power forward the league has now which are a little shorter and quicker than back in the day. He also doesn't have great leaping ability to block shots.
On offense in college, he wasn't fast or athletic en...

Our zone offense in overtime was pretty putrid. I am fine with the design of the 3 out 2 in set with the post players working block to elbow.
The problem is that we only passed it around the perimeter and never looked inside. We never drove any gaps or attacked the short corner area to flatten o...

I definitely enjoyed the movie, and like some said it was funnier than I expected. I did build it up way too much in my head before seeing it though.
I agree with Uncle Stu's comments. The pacing and flow seemed off, and it was disjointed at times, (especially in the first hour or so.)
