Undersized to play the four, but not a true three either
Breaking down defenders in one-on-one situations
Explosiveness at the rim
Prone to foul trouble against bigger opponents
Will struggle guarding most NBA wings due to a lack of quickness
Summary: Wesley Matthews' success in the NBA has helped Marquette players (Lazar Hayward and Jimmy Butler sneaking into the late first round the past two seasons) earn the reputation of being rugged and hard-nosed, and able to contribute in numerous ways. Jae Crowder fits that description perfectly. However, Crowder doesn't have a true position at the next level which hurts his stock. Still, he should get second round looks due to his versatility.
Player Comparison: Lazar Hayward. The Marquette parallel is obvious, but both guys are undersized by NBA standards as they were counted on to play the post in college but will have to play small forward in the NBA. Like Hayward, Crowder is capable of stretching defenses with their three-point shooting but lacks the ideal wing skills or explosiveness to be a real threat off the bounce.
@chuckster all you do is post insignificant journal entries with no means to an end or idea of where you going or where you been....records???? Save the tough talk we can meet anytime a simple response with records will suffice
I don't see this ending well. I don't think its a good idea to take the under on 2 teams in the same division, especially with low numbers. One team beats the other, then all they need is a few fluke wins. Anon is absolutely right about new coaches getting the most out of their teams. And although I agree the eagles are going to contend, I'm not completely sold. Lets look at lane's 5-1 record, Browns, bears, 3rd string cowboys, giants where the offense put up less than 300 yards and a good steelers team. So you have 1 quality win. My concern would be wentz's struggles on the road which is why I wont bet it. Under on the jets is just free money though.
