Andrew Luck and Jim Harbaugh

12 posts in this topic

I know we invested heavily into the quarterback position this year. But I still think it would be amazing if we got Harbaugh and picked up Luck with the first pick and were able to keep the two together. Honestly I don't have much faith in Jimmy Clausen, but Luck is a specimen. What do you think?

I think this belongs in the draft thread.

I don't want Harbaugh either.

I don't want to throw the 2nd we spent on Jimmy away, nor has Clausen had time to see what he can do.

Conventional wisdom would agree with you, that it would be unwise to throw a 2nd round pick away. But I think our situation is a bit different. Jimmy Clausen was drafted because he ran a similiar offensive system at Notre Dame, but when we hire a new coach all that sort of goes out the window. Not only that, we don't have a lot of money invested in Clausen. We have a chance to get a freak in Andrew Luck, if we have that opportunity I take it.

If we get #1 pick and Luck is available and no defensive players have really separated themselves, we might draft him. If you have the #1, you can't always go with need if the top player is that much better.

I doubt we'll have the #1, though, and I doubt Luck will be up when we pick.

If we got the #1 pick, why wouldn't Luck be available?

At least they aren't taking our refuse like the Bears.

What we need is some trades with the Jets. The last 2 times has wokred out pretty well for us.

Jim Harbaurgh will be one of the best coaches ever, he is twice the coach of his brother in Baltimore... that words stated specifically from John Harbaurgh's mouth.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
