Do The Post-Cut Positional Numbers Mean a Shift in Philosophy?

26 posts in this topic

Particularly the 5 WRs and 5 RBs... Do you think this means much more of a run-heavy style than we were even anticipating?

It means we had more talent at one position over the other.

Keep the good, cut the bad.

We have 5 RBs because of injuries.

No it means there was dead weight at certain positions that we used to fill depth at others.

Seems pretty simple.

I don't know, I keep thinking of Shula and his Tampa Bay offense.

i think  it means more that we have a weak OL so we've got to take up 10 or 11 spots there and we are going to be running nickel packages so we need more DBs.

 

i think also it means they might be trying to turn brandon williams into a bigger receiving option so we kept more TEs.

I am sooooo drunk.  You're going to have to make this a, "Choose A or B" for me to give you anything.  Before you do, I choose B.

 

 

 

Now, back to being serious, we won't start the season with 5 WR's.  This is where the process begins, not ends.  Gettleman is no idiot.  He is scanning all there is to scan like Sauron in the Lord of the Rings.

 

 

Now, back to drinking and the Gettis thread....

My fear is we are going to see playcalls from the 60s. Then again after Smith and LaFell we just had some dudes like most years.

Williams

Stewart would be the 4th if off PUP and Smith gone

    • 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!
