519 Pro Bowl
  1. 18 games?

    The idea that players can only play in 16 of them is a ridiculous one as well. The NFL is just grabbing for more money and its incredibly obvious.
  2. Team Needs

    So honestly right now there aren't a horrible amount, but to be honest they're coming. This is in no particular order... FS - Damarious Randall has been great but I don't know that we are going to be able to re-sign him. Free safety could be an issue. SS - Morgan Burnett is long in the tooth and not the long-term replacement at SS. We lost peppers in the OBJ trade and we may need to fill that spot as well. DE - Olivier Vernon was a GREAT trade but has only 2 years left on his contract and we don't know where we are looking after him. I love Avery but can he be an every day DE? Will we need to draft one. DT - We need depth. I don't expect Sheldon Richardson to be around forever, especially when we need to pay Baker and Garrett, we are not going to be able to keep the high salary of Richardson. LB - I don't expect them to keep Joe Shobert or Kristian Kirksey long term, I don't know that Sione Takitaki or Mack Wilson are the answer there. That position is up in the air. TE - Ndjoku is just not John Dorseys guy. I don't expect to make him a top 5 paid TE when his contract is up. I expect to be looking for a TE. C - This is JC Tretters last year. We may be looking for a replacement. G - We don't know how Austin Corbett will play at Guard, we may be looking for a replacement tehre. T - Chris Hubbard has 2 more years on his contract and Greg Robinson might be a one year wonder for us. We could be looking for positions there. Long story short there is NO way to tell what our needs are right now. Its going to have to be as the season goes along we find out....
  3. The New Season

    Lol didn't even realize that. Well that's at least improvement from the following year I guess? How do you think it will turn out? Hard to believe he will match production from the second half of last year exactly at 68.4% completion and only 10 sacks.
  4. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Oh HELL no. shoots less than 30% from beyond the arc but still takes 6 3's a game? effective field goal percentage of 46.8%. He gets a TON of rebounds for a guard and gets a good amount of assists but not someone to build around. Just someone to help sell tickets when your seasons are hopeless. I want players to build for the future with, not someone who will stick us in purgatory with no chance at being good and no chance at high draft picks.
  5. The New Season

    I do enjoy how these people took a real shot at his stats. If you take his stats from last season and extrapolate it over 16 games he would have had the following... Attemps : 576 Completions: 367 Comp%: 63.7 Y/A: 7.7 Yards: 4,447 TD: 32 INT: 17 NO ONE went outside of 5% change in any of those numbers. Whether you believe in sophomore slump or improvement, this is crazy to me... Our offense got better, or play calling is going to be more pass heavy, I think he improves by more than 5% in at LEAST a category or two.... My guess is this... Attempts: 590 Completions: 398 Comp%: 67.5% Y/A: 8.25 Yards: 4,868 TD: 39 INT: 15

    Lol funny enough I didn't even meant to quote that. I was going for substance not flash :-P
  7. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Honestly you say that but I don't think it hurt them at all. From what I understand, they were going to go after DeAngelo Russell or Kemba Walker before they thought they had a chance for Kawhi. Having missed out on Kawhi, they got one of the best 3 and D players in the league in Danny Green which is the PERFECT fit for Lebron. I'm not saying Cousins is the savior, but before his Achillies injury he was one of the best centers in the league. He doens't clog the lane, he plays good defense, he is a willing passer and gets a LOT of rebounds. If he can come back to what he was before the Injury they got a STEAL If not AD is their center and Kuzma is their PF. I'm not saying Rondo is a great move, but he was once a phenomenal defender and has always been a good passer. The one thing I can say about this team is they are willing distributors to find the best options. With Green and AD as good as they are defensively, if Cousins can come back to what he was, this will be a VERY good team. Obviously they would have been better with Kawhi, but they are better having chased Kawhi and lost than not having chased at all...

    I was worried when the lakers had the pick that he was the perfect choice for them. Now I worry that Atlanta is going to jump us and take him in front of us. Hunter is my guy and I hope we land him.
  9. Genard Avery, signs point he is no longer a LB

    I thought last year that Avery was a MUCH better DE than he is a LB. He can play LB by why when rushing the QB is his best quality. I like him to take over for Vernon when we can no longer afford a 2nd high priced DE
  10. Wide Receiver: Who else makes the cut...

    I feel like strong is the type of big bodied receiver that we need. I really like Ratley and Willies, I would keep them on the PS again until we see what happens with Higgins next year, but I have a feeling its going to be strong.
  11. UDFA Signings

    So turns out he wont.... https://twitter.com/ScottPetrak/status/1134194386441506816

    Yeah Ashton Hagans was out PG. Tyler Herro was our natural 2. He was the best shooter on the team and hit free throws at like a 95% clip. Keldon played small forward but he was just a wing player also like Herro. They will both be shooting guards in the league but keldon is more of a slasher and Herro is more of the pure 2 shooter
  13. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    I'm a huge Kentucky fan, I went to school there and I watch every one of their games. I don't want Keldon Johnson. He plays too out of control. He can be a good player but I would MUCH rather have Tyler Herro if I had the choice of a KY Guard. He is the perfect fit for a 2 guard. Shoots the ball well, drives well, plays off the bounce, plays aggressive high energy defense, is a really good size and athleticism. I hope Herro is there with the Houston Pick
  14. Pick 1 to Breakout

    I think Callaway is the answer for the breakout player. I thought all along last year coming from college where he had to sit out an entire year and receiver is always a position that takes a while to adjust to the NFL, that he would be the one to REALLY progress from year 1 to year 2. Our lineup of Beckham, Landry, Callaway and Higgins is going to be devastating to defenses trying to guard them. It will be a SUPER exciting year for offense...
  15. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Yeah I agree with your assesment completely. I think Hunter is the perfect fit for John Beilein's style of play. He is a little slow on the shot, but that can improve at this level. We were the worst defensive team in the NBA last year, what makes Kawaii great is his defensive ability, I don't want another volume shooter, I've seen enough of those...
