Glad you had a good experience.
Duh, yea I forgot he has not played long enough
How about Bryce Young?
Not eligible for the draft yet.
And he's a punk *** chump.
Yea Stupid me
HalRex pointed it out
so I then asked about Young
I think Young is the type who will just fit in anywhere. It doesn't matter if he's forced into starting duty for some ****** team in his first season, because he just makes throws and extends plays. That's pretty much all that's required of a serviceable QB. I think the closest thing to him in about 10 years will be how Drew Brees fared after 10 years in the league. He should be the first QB taken, because teams should see how guys like Baker Mayfield worked out.
Levis, Stroud, and Richardson will all get taken in the first round. I just don't think any of them will come close to Young's NFL success.
So TCU's Max Duggan declares for the draft. He has earned it!
Will he play in playoff game? Yes he will
Also, sorry, my mistake, I mispoke...it is not the Alamo Bowl that has a terrible reputation among the local disability community, it's the Alamodome. Big difference. My apology, didn't mean to impune the Bowl.
Just did a little searching on career ending injuries.
Willis McGahee had almost 10,000 yards offense in the NFL. Injury was kinda gruesome. No idea how the injury impacted his overall career.
Marcus Lattimore. Blew out a knee his sophomore year then blew out the other as a junior in a conference game. Not a bowl game. Not eligible to enter the draft prior to injury.
Sergio Kindle. Hurt in a bowl game that led to the end of his career.
Anthony Poindexter. Thought he never made NFL but read an article saying he played 3 years. Certainly impacted him, but he’s had a pretty nice career in football. Regular season game. Returned for Sr season.
Hodges Mitchell. Cheap shot in my opinion. Not sure of his chances pre-injury, but that seemed to end it.
Jaylon Smith. Still playing so who knows.
I would say far more dudes stock drops once true Draft evals take place than bowl game injuries causing injury concerns.
Kindle was hurt in the bowl game? When?
He wasn’t. I threw that one in there to show that off field crap can play a part in hurting your career too.
Ok Got it and in Kindle's case it was off the field injury.
I got confused when you said Kindle was hurt in a bowl game that ended his career. He actually had a good bowl game.
His last statement rings very true...re: National Championship rings, "I know you want one of these...you won't get one @ a&m."
IIRC, Kindle was hurt off season falling down some stairs. Harmed him in NFL draft.
Big difference in playing in a game that can still lead to a NC and playing in what amounts to a meaningless bowl game.
Kindle fell down the stairs 3 months after the draft.
There's a huge difference between someone bailing on a "meh" bowl game to protect their offseason training and draft status versus someone balling out in the playoff. Plus, Duggan can pretty much only help his draft status by playing. He's a late round pick at best.
So if it weren't the play offs Duggan should not risk injury in a meaningless bowl game?
What if Duggan gets injured but TCU wins?
i think it matters more for RBs, OL, and front 7. jmo but those guys get injured at a much higher rate than QBs, etc.
i also agree on "meh" bowl game vs playoff games.
If Duggan gets injured but TCU wins it was worth it because it was a playoff game?
Dude, if you're in the playoffs then your season basically isn't over yet.
You're still playing for a championship.
If your team is in the Alamo bowl, your season is over.
The bowl is something extra that hopefully allows you to travel someplace cool and pick up some gifts and have one more game with your buddies if you want.
So Duggan or anyone headed to NFL Has to play in a playoff game even if they injure themselves and lose opportunity to play in NFL?.
Nobody has to do anything they don't want to.
But if you don't understand the motivational differences between taking your team to a National Championship and playing in a meaningless bowl game then I don't know what else to tell you.
Really not sure what point you're trying to get across here.
TCU BMDs see to it that he never works a day in his life because he got them to the Championship Game
i mostly think it's the player's choice and if it's worth it to him then yes.
BUT...he's a college hero, a davey o'brien award winner, 2nd in heisman, but a Day 3 draft prospect. if I were he, I would play and it would be worth it.
EDITED: I think some guys wrestle with this a lot. And I understand why. They care about the team AND their future. Some guys don't care. But when a player opts out of a bowl game, I don't think it's a given that they don't care.
And she mentioned Justin Tucker
And if Bijan plays in the Alamo Bowl and gets hurt?
He's not playing, and it is NOT the final four.
