  1. Captain Munnerlyn inactive today

    You mean to tell me we are better with PFF's 99th ranked corner on the field than Shaq Thompson? Munnerlyn gets beat like a drum in the slot, other than throwing him in as a corner blitzer he is worthless.
  2. Captain Munnerlyn inactive today

    Where exactly should he be used? We're not going to line him up across from Michael Thomas, Julio Jones, or Mike Evans. Munnerlyn has been beat out of his only position by a linebacker. This is a signing that Gettleman shouldn't have made.
  3. Captain Munnerlyn inactive today

    Acts like Tarzan, plays like Jane. If Ron benches the franchise QB for a dress code violation, he sure as hell is gonna bench the nickel corner for walking out of practice.
  4. 2017-2018 Carolina Hurricanes Season

    Canes are currently on a three game winning streak, the issue is their division is murderer's row.
  5. I figured I'd make a thread for the upcoming season since there is usually not enough activity to have a thread for each individual game. Nonetheless, the Hurricanes kicked off the 2017-2018 NHL season with a preseason win over the Buffalo Sabres last night. Derek Ryan had 2 goals (including the game winner) and 1 assist, Josh Jooris added a goal, and Jeff Skinner, Haydn Fleury, and Trevor Van Riemsdyk each added an assist. The Canes are icing a young lineup tonight against the Tamp Bay Lightning in their second preseason game and Justin Williams makes his return. Teravainen/ Rask/ Williams Nordstrom/ Kruger/ McGinn Foegel/ Kuokkanen/ Gauthier Bishop/ Poturalski/ Jooris Dahlbeck/McKeown Carrick/Kichton Samuelsson/Chelios Nedeljkovic Booth The Canes training camp roster currently sits at 54 players with Stelio Mattheos, Morgan Geekie, Hudson Elynuik, Noah Carroll, and Brendan De Jong having been returned to juniors. You can find an updated training camp roster here: http://nhl.bamcontent.com/images/assets/binary/291116208/binary-file/file.pdf.
  6. Time to clean house

    Marvin Bagley would look really good trotting up and down the floor in purple and teal.
  7. College Basketball General Discussion

    I like the way UNC is playing so far this year. While the schedule isn't as tough as it has been in years past, I do appreciate the fact that Roy schedules mid-majors that are projected to win their conference. I'd be pretty upset if he scheduled three schools from the Big South that have no shot at making the tournament. Maye, Berry, Pinson, and Williams have been very consistent which is what we need night in and night out. Couple that with at least one additional player stepping up every game: vs. Northern Iowa- Garrison Brooks (14 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists) vs. Bucknell- Sterling Manley (16 points, 13 rebounds, 2 blocks) & Garrison Brooks (10 points, 3 rebounds, 1 block) vs. Stanford- Brandon Huffman (8 points, 5 rebounds) vs. Portland- Andrew Platek- (12 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist) vs. Arkansas- None In nearly every game, the Heels have at least 5 players going. It's tough to beat a team that is incredibly deep.
  8. Hornets vs. Clippers

    For anyone that cares, Clifford has finally played MCW as the second unit point guard. But he's also relegated Malik Monk to the bench and still trots Frank's dumbass out there.
  9. 2017-2018 Carolina Hurricanes Season

    The Canes get another victory behind a phenomenal game from Cam Ward, I'm not sure what happened between the Arizona game and now but this team is actually putting forth effort and scoring goals. The Canes sit only one point out with a couple games in hand.
  10. 2017-2018 Carolina Hurricanes Season

    Canes have somehow managed to fight there way back into the playoff picture, sitting three points back with 3 games in hand.
  11. Hornets vs. Clippers

    Well at least that skid is over.
  12. Hornets vs. Clippers

    Please put in O'Bryant for Frank... dear Lord.
  13. Hornets vs. Clippers

    Lol Deja Vu... blowing a 4th quarter lead
  14. Hornets vs. Clippers

    I think the big thing here is Howard is hitting his shots. I feel like we'll go how Howard goes. Just my opinion though.
  15. Hornets vs. Clippers

    Well what do you know... Howard has taken the most shots and because of this, he's stayed engaged. Howard with 12 points (6 for 8), 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block. This dude has to be the focal point or else he doesn't show up.
  16. Hornets vs. Clippers

    I see guys like Aldridge, Markkanen, and Porzingas and then I see Kaminsky and I'm like why...
  17. Fire Clifford!!!

    I'm over Clifford as well, for a man who prides himself on defense, we sure do get torched a lot. Not to mention his offensive sets are head scratching to say the least. If Kemba wasn't as phenomenal at creating his own shot as he is, this team might be the worst in the league (and it's not because of talent). I would like to see Silas get a crack and Stackhouse hired as the associate head coach.
  18. Lamb needs to stay a starter..

    I was originally against this idea but with how poorly the bench has been playing, this could actually help. I think the assumption was that MCW was going to run the point but that hasn't happened and as we saw today against Chicago, Monk is not a point guard. Let Nic run the second unit/play point forward and keep him out there an extra few minutes in the 2nd when the starters come back in. Basically he'll play starter minutes off the bench.
  19. Something Is Up With Dwight...

    Selfish Dwight is back. When he's not receiving post touches he checks out elsewhere as well. He doesn't rebound and he doesn't play defense. The simple solution would be to give him post touches, but since his post game is so poor, we'd be damning ourself to NBA purgatory if we actually ran plays for him. He makes DeAndre Jordan look like Shaq. There's not a doubt in my mind that he could have blocked Dunn's shot if he was engaged defensively and rotated on time; but he had already checked out, the guy is a mental midget. If he gets his way, he stays engaged but more than likely it's going to be to the detriment of the team. If he's asked to do what's best for the team then pouts like a child.
  20. Lamb needs to stay a starter..

    For me the only hestiancy is that Bacon and Monk are wildly inconsistent so far and that's to be expected of rookies. Monk's last 6 games are 10, 2, 13, 25, 2, and 6 Bacon's last 6 are 1, 4, 2, 10, 18, and 7 I'd be comfortable with those guys putting up 10 across the board instead of a 2 point game here and a 25 point game there. But they are rookies so that's to be expected. The issue is if you have Batum out there with those guys and they aren't hitting then you force Batum to become the go to scorer and we all know he is a volume shooter. He'll chuck up those wild threes until he makes one. If you roll with Lamb you have a guy out there who you know is going to get you 15 a night no matter what. I ultimately think that's why Minnesota beat the breaks off us. Crawford came in and got his 10-15 he gets a night. That allowed the starters just enough rest before they came back in. When you have a guy that can drop 15 off the bench you are basically sending the message to the other team that your starters are gonna make a run on our starters and I honestly don't think many teams could straight blow our starters out save Golden State. I definitely see where you are coming from and I would agree with you if Monk and Bacon were more efficient. I could see your lineup happening next year as it looks like the roster should remain intact.
  21. Lamb needs to stay a starter..

    I think the game against the Spurs shows exactly why Lamb needs to play with the second unit. He can be our version of Jamal Crawford/ Manu Ginobli (in their prime). While these guys certainly were good enough to start they were a better service to their teams coming off the bench. One reason Batum HAS to remain a starter is because he is far and away the best distributor on the team. I cannot wait to see how Dwight benefits from Batum's ball distribution. While Batum can score just watching him you can tell he wants to distribute first. I'll also mention Lamb has shown this year that he's a much more efficient scorer than Batum. Batum may put up more points but Lamb is clearly the better scorer. That is the guy you want coming off the bench. Ultimately when healthy I think we go with: PG: Walker, MCW SG: Batum, Lamb, Monk SF: MKG, Bacon, Grahan PF: Marvin, Frank C: Howard, Zeller Inactive: Stone, O'Bryant Paige to the G-League

    Lol, this team loses to Arizona in the shootout.
  23. 2017-2018 Carolina Hurricanes Season

    This entire staff has got to go. The Canes are getting their asses handed to them by the worst team in the league. This system does not work and Peters is clearly not motivating the guys. Rod can have a scouting position or something to appease him but this team needs a shakeup in a bad way.
  24. 2017-2018 Carolina Hurricanes Season

    Finally getting to watch a game and this team looks horrible. Heads need to start rolling.
  25. 2017-2018 Carolina Hurricanes Season

    Gonna try to catch this one tonight. If it seems like the Canes haven't won in a week, it is because they haven't. It's been 9 days since the Canes beat the breaks off Toronto and there is no better team to play than the Coyotes to end this drought. The Canes are down a defenseman with Pesce out due to a concussion, Roland McKeown was called up for the occasion. Skinner / Staal / Lindholm Teravainen / Rask / Williams Aho / Kruger / Jooris Nordstrom / Ryan / McGinn Slavin / Faulk Fleury / Van Riemsdyk Hanifin / McKeown Darling Ward Scratched: Brown, Dahlbeck Injured: Stempniak, Pesce
