re: Shaq Diesel Doesn't Get How he only has one MVP - LSUQ on 2/28/12 at 8:22 am
Career 53% free throw shooter. His being out there still made him a liability. The other problem Shaq always had is a lack of contemporaries. By the time he was considered completely dominant (as defined by being first team All-NBA), he was competing against Ben Wallace, an aging David Robinson...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Trent Johnson on Jeremy Lin - LSUQ on 2/20/12 at 11:48 pm
As the designated "dummy" in the discussion, I hope I can try to more clearly articulate my view of the "Lin situation" without embarrassing myself or my family. It is hard for me to go straight "racism" here regardless of what opinion Magic, Legler, and any other talking heads hold. And may...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Trent Johnson on Jeremy Lin - LSUQ on 2/20/12 at 11:16 am
You'll forgive me if I choose to think for myself and not parrot news coverage. . .in spite of my closed eyes and mind. It just seems to me the statement "how close this NBA player went to being totally unnoticed" indicates that the system works. Trent plus 300 other scholarship granting institu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Trent Johnson on Jeremy Lin - LSUQ on 2/20/12 at 10:09 am
I've already given you an example of an undrafted black player that people obviously missed on, Ben Wallace. So whether you think it would happen or not is irrelevant, history shows that it has happened. Beyond that, what seems to be missing here is that ultimately the system worked. Unrecruite...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Trent Johnson on Jeremy Lin - LSUQ on 2/18/12 at 12:19 am
While the list isn't long finding similar situations in basketball isn't hard. Bubba's example of Stephen Curry should not be glossed over. Curry's skill set and early success in college indicate that he warranted higher consideration than three offers. The list must also include an undersized ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Jeremy Johnson QB - LSUQ on 2/15/12 at 3:12 pm
I am amazed at how comfortable we have become at saying things like this. Why wouldn't you want to have someone that can do both (run and throw). Threat implies that both must be viable options. And if you name Brady, Brees, and the Mannings keep in mind that there is a reason we know their nam...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: do you want dual-threat or drop back QB? - LSUQ on 1/12/12 at 5:42 am
Dual threat versus Drop back is a false distinction. If a player is a [b]true[/b] dual threat then of course you want that. Who says I only want a player that does only one aspect of his position well. Aaron Rogers is one of the most accurate quarterbacks we have seen in a while. . .but what ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Hilarious!!! A guy like Ryan will have the opportunity to work as a GA when he retires or join an NFL staff. As someone mentioned, he has turned himself into a a consistent performer on one of the most demanding defenses in the league. He gets to sit in meetings with one of the best defensive c...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I think "most impressive path" is a better debate. We live in an era where we throw out the moniker "best" far too easily and quickly. Beyond that, I think Tommie Frazier is the forgotten superman of college football. That offense was incredible. . .talk about an offense that says "stop us, y...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
