re: Thought this was interesting - brmark70816
[quote]You’re a strange guy. Pels could have that deal anytime they want it. [/quote] I don't believe that. There is no way the Cavs trade that pick before James commits to them beyond this season. They would have no hope to re-sign Cousins (who is going to sign with Washington this summer anyw...

re: Thought this was interesting - brmark70816
I wish I could believe in a world where the Cavs would give us the Brooklyn pick and Thompson for Cousins. Thompson is actually a pretty good fit next to Davis. Then two shots at the 1st pick (Porter). Plus we would have some cash to build a bench. Not even saying a new GM and coaching staff. If onl...

re: So what is Bill Simmons/Ringer’s deal with the Pels? - brmark70816
I am assuming one or both well be injured for portions of this season. The pair average 27 missed games a season between them (Cousins has suspensions mixed in there as well). In 12 combined seasons, they only have 2 seasons I would consider injury free. They are just injury prone guys. Without one ...

re: So what is Bill Simmons/Ringer’s deal with the Pels? - brmark70816
Everything is based on those 2 players, everything. If one goes down or struggles, the season is over. The 15th team, Phoenix, is loaded with talent. It doesn't take much to see why people outside our market would doubt this team, especially this current group. ...

re: So what is Bill Simmons/Ringer’s deal with the Pels? - brmark70816
Its not that far off. Meddling PG, horrible wing players, no shooters and two dominant front court players who have to step back to accommodate the other's games (not to mention both are soft and don't want to play Center). Easily bottom 3rd of the league in talent. No playoff experience and and a b...

re: Kaepernick has filed a grievance against owners of NFL - brmark70816
If he was being colluded against, it would start with SF. They were the first team that had the opportunity to sign him and obviously had the most history with him. They would have also been the first point of contact for teams to guage his personality and potential going forward. But yet, no one ev...

re: Kaepernick has filed a grievance against owners of NFL - brmark70816
He can't claim collusion by the entire league, then say he didn't want to go back to SF. If they would have offered him a new contract, then he doesn't have a case. That's why I think they are so important to this issue and where the real issue exists. If he was a cancer, injury prone, too expensive...

re: Kaepernick has filed a grievance against owners of NFL - brmark70816
They didn't cut him, he opted out. Then they gave Hoyer a 2Y/12M contract (incentive based) instead of resigning Kapernick. Supposedly he is much better than Hoyer. So why didn't they resign him? I'm not saying they should have. They should be the ones under fire though for letting him go. They didn...

re: Kaepernick has filed a grievance against owners of NFL - brmark70816
Hoyer just lost the job to a 3rd round rookie, Beathard. SF obviously had a major need at QB. But everybody gives them a pass for not resigning or renegotiating his contract. I just want to know why they aren't the ones getting the brunt of the heat and trying to explain why they moved on. They shou...

re: Kaepernick has filed a grievance against owners of NFL - brmark70816
I will never get why SF isn't brought up more in this whole debate. They were his team and were cool with the protest. Once he opted out, they washed their hands of him and never get any heat for not resigning him. The GM and Coach just said he wasn't a good fit, then signed an awful journeyman QB. ...

re: Jefferson,Burke or Green? - brmark70816
[quote]Damn, has Trey Burke really been that bad? I thought he looked okay at Utah early on. [/quote] Some guys just can't find the right fit to showcase what they can do. Some coaches just don't like certain players. You never know what might be holding a player back. The guy has talent, but it'...

[quote]Beno has been waived. I'd go him.[/quote] With Rondo down/out for awhile, we really do need to add another PG. Especially if they are going to start Rondo and Holiday together after Rondo gets back. You can't make a starting player the primary back-up at another spot. All our other guards ...

re: How good will we do this year? - brmark70816
It's going to be an interesting year either way. I have never seen a team constructed like this. I just can't think of another like it. If you go by guy's projected positions, this is the breakdown (with Holiday sliding to SG). PG- 1 (Rondo) SG- 7 (Holiday, Moore, Clark, Crawford, Allen, Jackso...

re: Cousins contract question..? - brmark70816
So they traded for him knowing there was no way he would sign an extension and he was for sure going to be a free agent that tests the market? I have read 5Y/180M, that is what we can offer him next summer? What is the most other teams can offer him? Would it just be the one less year? ...
