  1. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    I always wonder how often people make claims like " none of his sacks came against OTs" or "he gets doubled this % of the time" relying solely on their memory from watching the game live. Not calling anyone out but those claims are taken by me with an eyeroll and a grain of salt.

    Austin Seferian-Jenkins just got cut I heard. I know hes bounced around a lot but his physical attributes are enticing.

    Ya it was at stage AE. It was funny to watch JuJu's snapchat story. Every time he pulled out his phone, all the kids around the VIP section basically ignored the concert to get on his snapchat.
  4. At least we didn't draft a TE top ten after giving Jesse James a big contract.
  5. We finally traded in front of a division rival to get the player we want. Am i dreaming?

    I like his potential with Ben. He's got a red zone body too.

    So I don't know much about Steven Nelson other than he started for the Chiefs who had a questionable defense. Do we have two legit corners on paper now? Can the dude catch the ball? We need guys who can actually play the ball in the air desperately.

    Cool. I know it's your shtick to tell people their opinions are wrong, but I don't really care what you think. Zion is a freak and probably will be a better scorer in the league then Cam because he has a pretty high floor compared to Cam and he will wreak havoc in transition and hustle points. At the same time, his current jump shot isn't very effective and he's not gonna be able to get it off when hes guarded at the next level. In terms of overall impact he is the best player, but I can't see him as a go to scorer in the half court at the next level unless he drastically changes his shooting form. 2FG percentage for a guy in college who is that strong and athletic doesn't make him a go to scorer when the gap will be no where near what it currently is at the next level in my opinion. The great scorers have multiple tools in their bag in case the other team takes away what they do best. RJ is a better scorer right now, but he also looks fully developed physically and is supremely confident and aggressive. Again higher floor, but IMO he has tunnel vision and I question how elite he will be when he's going against guys as big and strong as him since he isn't incredibly crafty off the bounce nor does he have an incredibly effective jump shot. Cam to me has the highest ceiling and the lowest floor of the three as a scorer. I can see a path where he improves his core strength and explosiveness so he can put defenders on his hip and use his craftiness to make plays. Not really an above the rim player but able to get to the rim or make the kickout/dumpoff passes. Being a threat to pull up lessens the dependency on athleticism in terms of driving because the defender knows you have that tool in your bag and when you are six foot seven with a seven foot wingspan and a fairly quick trigger it makes the pull up even more dangerous. Problem is, IMO, is he still hasn't shown the supreme confidence the other two have and he just seems to have the type of personality that he is quick to fade into the back ground or become a spot up shooter if he isn't in a rhythym. If that doesn't change he won't be as good as the other two even if neither of them end up being an elite go-to scorer at the next level like I expect. Again you can tell me how I'm wrong, I don't care. I've seen what I have seen and I am more partial to the tools Cam has shown to have in his bag. If he can gain that confidence somehow and become stronger on the ball I think he has potential to be the guy I want to give the ball to at the end of the game in the half court when I need a bucket at the next level. To me, that's what I want out of my superstar franchise player. Its risky business betting on a kid to improve his drive to be great and becoming supremely confident against the best basketball players in the world though, which is why I still take Zion over him because of the overall impact he has on a game. Probably still take RJ over him too because he has that confidence and I can see him being an all-star at the next level as a second option. Its easy to say, but I think this draft is incredibly overrated since most of the top guy's flaws aren't as detrimental at the college level. They are all young and can improve obviously but as of now I am fairly underwhelmed.

    He's smooth and long tho with good ball skills which makes elite explosiveness less necessary IMO. His body maturing with an NBA nutrition and weights program could easily get him up to par in terms of explosiveness and absorbing contact. Cam has been my guy in this class since before the season so I am just partial to him. Zion is the better prospect right now just because of his all round game combined with elite athleticism and hustle but I have doubts about his scoring ability at the next level. Barrett is nice but something about his game has always bothered me since I first watched him when he was killing it for the Canadian U whatever team. Bully wing that is super confident and aggressive. I think he tops out as a Jimmy Butler ish player and I don't want that as the best player on my team. Reddish reminded me of a less explosive T-Mac in highschool. I'm a sucker for tall long twos that can dribble shoot and pass. Its my ideal player model for a franchise guy because they can catch the ball in the half court at their spots and go to work in the triple threat. I can easily see him fill out his frame a little bit more and work on his core strength and explosion and he won't have to be uber athletic with his ball skills and and length if he plays the two. I never expected him to assert himself on a team with dominating personalities like Zion and RJ but its still my biggest concern that he just doesn't have the internal drive to become great. He's young though, which is why I hope he gets the right coach at the next

    Coming in here again to say Cam Reddish has the best pro skillset on this Duke team. If he was more assertive I would consider him over Zion and Barrett. Could be a star if the right coach can mold and motivate him as he matures. Still my favorite prospect.

    If he's not traded he I can't see him showing up to anything til week 10. And he's dumb enough to actually listen to James Harrison and fake injuries once he has to come back.
  12. So I don't know if this has been talked about in here before but with all the AD to LA rumors and the KD to NY rumors, I've been thinking about how good the Warriors will be if they lose Durant and Boogie? I'm assuming they are going to give Klay whatever he wants because of his relationship with Steph and the whole splash brothers thing, but is a big three of Steph, Klay, and Draymond still a championship level big three? Will they even get any cap flexibility from losing KD and Boogie since they will have to pay Klay? I know they were a 70 win team a couple years ago before KD but Draymond seems like a liability on offense at this point and my understanding is they aren't exactly going to be able to take the money they want to give KD and give it to somebody else if he turns it down because they are over the luxury tax. Anyone have insight on this?
  13. Kristaps Porzingis Traded to Dallas

    It was funny reading through this thread seeing someone arguing that Dennis Smith was a worthwhile point guard to keep for a star studded team but arguing Kyrie would be detrimental. The same DSJ that couldn't play alongside Luka and went AWOL cuz his feelings were hurt after being shopped around. DSJ can't play off the ball, is a score first point guard, isn't all that efficient, and doesn't play defense. I like the kid and he has some nice tools but at full potential hes a bouncier, less efficient version of Kyrie.
  14. even munchak is tired of this

    Its so easy to feel smart when you're ignorant because you don't know what makes you wrong.

    Agreed, although I will say, ever since AB started blowing up with the business is booming nonsense and I actually started seeing him on camera/ talking, I've always thought he was pretty dim. I used to just think he was a lovable dummy who was a wide receiver savant and worked harder than everyone else. Ahh the good old days...
