The Action Brown's Comments

Posted Friday April 11, 2014, About: Knicks already had reached out to Calipari
No other kids come into the NBA more ready to play than Cal's kids - to say he is not a great coach is just simple minded. He takes five kids YOY that have been the focal point of every team they have ever played on and gets them to buy into a team game and individual development by busting their egos.

Does that translate to success in the NBA - no, it won't. But is it the essential purpose of a college coach for kids who never intended on graduation - absolutely. Remember back when there wasn't a one and done system, do you really think that the Harrison twins if drafted right out of high school would be even half the players that they are today?

In short - he's not great X's and O's; but he's more than just a "great recruiter".

good one.
Posted Friday April 11, 2014, About: The worst flop of the season?
It's cheating... and it is everything opposite from the word 'toughness'.

The block/charge foul should be a no-call at the pro level and college. If I wanted to watch and discern who is the better actor, I'd put on a movie.
Posted Thursday March 27, 2014, About: Ainge: No 'game-changers' in this draft
It depends on what you call a "game changer"... Is there a LBJ in this draft - no. Is there a KD in this draft - no. Is there even a Anthony Davis in this draft - No.

But I don't think it is too far offer the rocker to think that Parker could easily be the next Carmelo Anthony. Or if Randle is a poor man's Larry Johnson...
Posted Tuesday March 25, 2014, About: Bad sign for Manningham
A PCL tear ended my military career... Can't imagine ANYONE playing in the NFL after that injury.
Posted Friday March 14, 2014, About: Terps' Turgeon safe?
He's a stud player away... He's done for basketball what a lot of teams do for football - try to convert athletes into everyday position players.

You have a point guard who can't dribble, a PF that's 6-5, and a Center based on the old philosophy of grabbing the biggest guy you can find and telling him to put his hands up.

MD in the Big10 will be the team that stuns a lot of people - with their recruiting class coming in, and coming from an offensive minded league (ahem... like Texas AM and Missou from the big 12 to the SEC in football); there is no reason to be scared. To think that MD can't win games in the 50s and 60s when scoring 70 vs Duke, Syracuse, and Virginia - is just silly. No Big10 team has that great of a defense over these three schools, save for probably Wisconsin. And Craft would foul out of every game if he played in the ACC.
Posted Thursday March 13, 2014, About: The fastest ever to first?
They didn't clock Marquis Grissom or Delono DeShields (I don't feel like look up how to actually spell their names)... nobody was quicker to first than those two in their prime.

Brett Gardner's quick but yeah right. I don't see the corners automatically moved in regardless of the situation when he is up to bat...
Posted Wednesday February 26, 2014, About: C's eyeing Fredette?
C'mon Knicks.... Felton is never going to wear a NYK uniform again and this guy is dying to prove ha can play.

He's from NY, too.

C'mon Knicks!
Posted Monday February 24, 2014, About: Injured Davis left Mets in the dark
As a Mets fan, I can state that if I were a Mets player I would hide an injury at all costs, too. Everyone who gets injured in a Mets uniform the diagnostic mysteriously gets worse and not better as time goes on. Remember davis was the one who tweaked an ankle and was expected back in 7 days - only to end up not playing another game for the rest of that season.

Davis learned his lesson; the Mets still have the same strength, conditioning and wellness staff in place.
Posted Monday January 20, 2014, About: Prep star has UK guessing
I'm not a fan of Kentucky, but I will say one thing about Coach Cal... he's a coach.

Watching this group of Freshman grow up right before our eyes has been nothing short of spectacular watching where some of these kids started, as compared to where they are now.

Most notably Andrew Harrison. At season's beginning he looked lost, overwhelmed, and immature - now he looks like the steal of the draft when someone picks him between 14-30. All of that is Calipari.
Posted Thursday January 16, 2014, About: Syracuse poised to take attendance crown
LOL... this team can do it.

Not many teams in college basketball can find a way to win against quality teams when they only shoot 40% from the floor. Second, their last game again Boston College saw them give up a near 50% behind the arc, which is know as the great equalizer, and they still won.

They were more talented last year, but this is a better team. It's going to take some one like Michigan last year hitting threes from near halfcourt to knock them off because no one has the goods.

The only scary matchups for Cuse this year is Kansas or Michigan St.
Posted Friday January 10, 2014, About: Gilbride would have been fired anyway
True...

If you have a crappy line though, which I agree has been Reese's fault. Why no screens and draw plays to take advantage of teams sending the Dline and LBs downhill 75% of the time?

I guess they couldn't count on a RB to hang on to the ball, but was it that bad?
Posted Friday January 10, 2014, About: Gilbride would have been fired anyway
Yup.
Posted Thursday January 09, 2014, About: Auburn RB Tre Mason not ready to announce draft decision
Please Giants.... please, please, please draft this guy if he comes out.

Mason is the real deal.
Posted Saturday December 28, 2013, About: Report: Orioles balk at Mets demands for Ike Davis
As a Mets fan living in Baltimore... I thought the exact same thing. Maybe thinking of moving Davis, current, to the DH... or alternating them in that role.

Pretty good idea on second thought.
Posted Tuesday December 17, 2013, About: Coughlin backing embattled OC's 'pathetic' offense
See above.

O-line doesn't account for the lack of a screen play the last 6 years, the constant decision to throw on 3rd and 2, and getting away from doing things that work mid-game and from season to season - the TE use to be featured in this offense; now three balls go to the TE per game.

Check Eli's QB efficiency when the TE is featured versus what they run now. But I guess the TE lines up on the O-line so... maybe you have a point. Reese hasn't drafted well the last three years, so I will give you that, too.
Posted Tuesday December 17, 2013, About: Coughlin backing embattled OC's 'pathetic' offense
I've been a GMEN fan my whole life... obvuiously you just learned how to read.

I said "SOME" might say Eli at QB; not me. It's called representing all sides of an argument, not just your own viewpoint.
Posted Tuesday December 17, 2013, About: Coughlin backing embattled OC's 'pathetic' offense
Yup. Gilbride has been the worst for years. Giants D carried those superbowls versus the Pats outside of a few miraculous throws.

A total of 4 plays has kept Gilbride employed... and some might even say Eli at QB.
Posted Friday November 08, 2013, About: Terrelle Pryor compliments Jonathan Martin for 'being a man'
Walking away is the "immature" response? Please, please, please never have children.

And if you do, please let me know where you live before their high school becomes the next Columbine.

All of this "man up" talk is just silly. 1 - Because people deal with things differently; 2 - Because people do not know the entirety of what was said, nor Martin's past that led him to reach his limit.

Point blank, if you were on the wrong side of town when you were a kid and jumped by 5 off-race kids; you would have a LIFELONG problem with racial slurs being thrown your way. If you were molested by an adult of the opposite sex when you were a child, you would have a LIFELONG problem with relationships.

It's amazing how stupid you all sound just to be internet tough... If Icognito (or someone even remotely your size...) picked on you - you would walk away, guaranteed. Because the only people who say this crap on the internet are the people who do not have the "manhood" (as you all define it) to say it in real life.
Posted Friday October 25, 2013, About: The question haunting Durant
For the last time... it wasn't that he chose to leave, it was HOW he chose to leave.

You will NEVER see Durant (or anybody ever again, just like nobody ever before) spend an hour of prime time television glorifying themself as being above the sport they play.
Posted Wednesday September 04, 2013, About: Giants work out Wells, Dwyer and Washington
The three on the list can all help in special ways, but Washington is an older version of Wilson so he's out. Beanie showed glimpses as having the most similar game to Brown. But, I agree with you that Dwyer would probably make the most sense as an off-type compliment.
