  1. If this is truly the case, they need to trade PJ Washington now and get something of value for him. Can’t see him getting re-signed if he can’t push for a starting position.
  2. Are we THAT loaded at the 3 (Hayward, Miles, Oubre) and that lacking at the 4 (just PJ)? Seems like a move needs to be made.
  3. Taking my shot at it: 1.) LaMelo, Ish 2.) Terry, Bouknight 3.) Miles, Oubre 4.) Hayward, PJ, Vernon 5.) Plumlee, Kai, Richards
  4. 18th all time in yards AND HE’S STILL PLAYING AND ELITE. You can have Henry Ellard, Chris Carter, James Lofton, Tim Brown, Isaac Bruce, etc. All great careers. I’ll take Julio Jones. And again, those guys played a long time...Julio will too.
  5. Julio Jones is absolutely in the conversation for Top-10 All-Time WR.
  6. Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Travis Kelce. 2020. Not arguing against OL importance, just answering the question you asked about SB champs and receivers. You asked the question, just providing answers. Literally the last two World Champs have featured *elite* receiving corps.
  7. “Quick, name me a Super Bowl winner that when you think of them, your first thought is, they won primarily because they have great receivers. I'll wait). “ Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski. 2021.
  8. Minivans have a sliding door and 3 rows of seats.
  9. Not a fan at all of moist QB’s.
  10. Malik Monk is a future NBA superstar. Not just saying that after a great game, been saying that since the minute we drafted him. Once again, he just turned 23 (that’s a redshirt college senior). When we drafted him he was the best shooter, best scorer, and best athlete in the draft. In a ridiculously loaded draft (Tatum, Fox, Mitchell, Bam, etc). For a franchise that has continuously drafted in the lottery and missed enormously (Kidd Gilchrest, Vonleh, Kaminsky, shall we go on?)... ...you don’t let Malik Monk walk.
  11. The Charlotte Hornets are currently the #4 seed in the Eastern Conference. Lol, wrap your brain around that.
  12. Adam Schefter has been on ESPN all day pretty adamant that Russ wants to move on from Seattle and that his “four preferred teams” of Dallas, Chicago, Vegas, New Orleans” is somewhat irrelevant at this point. The Seahawks hold the cards...if he wants out, he will have to be flexible. And 3 of the 4 have already moved on. Schefter has referred to the Panthers specifically (and solely) on multiple occasions in the last hour as a serious possibility. Not sure how I feel about this, but it seems like it’s becoming more of an option considering what’s going on with Deshaun right now. Schefter expects this to play out “over the next 6 weeks” so don’t expect anything anytime soon...
  13. Paying a #3WR three years/$34.5 million is nuts. We can easily draft a 4th or 5th rounder to replace that position for the next 4 years on the cheap. Samuel is wayyy overrated right now, but good for him.
  14. Marginal upgrade over PJ but for a max contract and two assets? Hard no. I don’t think we can keep Devonte so I’d like to get something for him. But with contracts and age considered I’m not even sure Collins for PJ straight-up is fair. Nevermind that 1st round pick and Devonte. Hard no. Roll with the young guys and fight for a ‘chip in 3-4 years, playoffs this year aren’t the end goal.
  15. 25 year old standout franchise QB - assume you have them for 10+ more years. 24 year old standout defensive player still on rookie contract - assume you have them 2-3 more years and then let them walk to the highest bidder and draft their more athletic replacement.
  16. I was listening to the ESPN guys watching the Hornets (Eric and Dell) live...Terry Rozier nails a shot and Eric yells “WITH GRAVEL IN HIS GUTS AND SPIT IN HIS EYE!!!!” ESPN dude basically says “so gravel..somewhere...or something. Great shot” Had to look it up. Johnny Cash explains both quotes. Cool song BTW, never heard it before.
  17. Confirmed How doo you doooo!
  18. Eric Martin last night: “Gravel in his gut and spit in his eye” Assuming this is also the origin of “How Dooo You Doooo” Johnny Cash: A Boy Named Sue https://www.google.com/amp/s/genius.com/amp/Johnny-cash-a-boy-named-sue-lyrics
  19. The 2021 Hornets are the most exciting professional sports team in Charlotte since 2015. I love watching these guys fight like dogs.
  20. Nobody is saying what you’re arguing against. If you’re the lowly Brooklyn Nets and you have a chance at Kevin Durant...YOU GO GET HIM! Is he the final answer? Of course not. But now all of a sudden you are an attractive destination, you get James Harden, Blake Griffin, Kyrie Irving, Deandre Jordan...and you’re instantly the favorite to win an NBA Championship. Team sports are superstar-centric. Nobody wins anymore with a ton of above average dudes. If you have a chance at a Top-5 player in their prime, you go all out. Patrick Mahomes is making HALF A BILLION DOLLARS by the way and I don’t hear any Chiefs fans complaining. He’s the only player ahead of Deshaun right now in terms of current value.
  21. I love Brian Burns as much as anyone on this board. But we over-hype our good players like most fans do. Is he our greatest asset right now? Absolutely. But the difference between him, Chinn, Brown, DJ, Moton, and the rest is ASTRONOMICAL. Here are the other D-Ends drafted in the 1st round of Burns’ same exact class class: Nick Bosa (Rookie of the Year) Montez Sweat Josh Allen ( Pro Bowler as a rookie) Quinnen Williams (also being discussed in a deal for Deshaun) Christian Wilkins, Clemson Clelin Ferrel, Clemson Ed Oliver And there are many others. At best I think you could say Burns is the 2nd or 3rd best of the class, possibly 4th or 5th. That’s awesome, but that’s ONE CLASS. Is he even a top 15 DE in the league right now? Deshaun Watson is the 2nd most valuable *player* in the NFL. Defensive linemen are very replaceable and can perform at a high level in year 1/2. Pro Bowl Franchise quarterbacks at age 25 are absolutely *never* available on the open market. But they are today. So you do what you have to do. Absolutely no current player is untradeable. That’s what negotiations are for, but we have to outbid everyone to make it happen. We don’t have a Tua on our roster to offer, that’s the whole point. Come home DeShaun.
