If this is your thought process I don't think we'll ever understand or agree with each other. But it has been fun debating.The Godwin Complex wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 10:40 amI don’t want a probably, I want a definitely. Otherwise, I’d prefer to hold Robinson. How we take our shots are different - when I take my shots I don’t settle for chances, even though the chance might be more profitable than nothing. Like I said before...if it was Tevin Coleman or Tahrik Cohen and a 2nd for Robinson... sure! If I could swing the 2nd by itself for Mack I’d be dancing . But I’m not cutting a deal involving unknowns unless I’m sure I’m going to gain in some way, in the event that all of us are wrongFantasyFreak wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 10:23 amYeah, but you could probably use a 2nd to improve your team right now via trade.The Godwin Complex wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 10:17 am
If you are guided by statistics (that are always changing) instead of your intuition and your ability to critically assess specific situations, then you are out of touch with the reality of a given moment. Of course there is a statistical backdrop. But that’s not what drives my decisions. What drives my decisions is being able to rely on what I know....and I know nothing about that pick until draft day. I know I can use James Robinson to better my team RIGHT NOW. Not improve my assets, better my team. If you are always using resources to build for the future you aren’t concentrating as much on catching the waves that are right in front of you.
Because that would SUCK to put your eggs in one basket because the stats say so and then eat dirt. I’m not doing it.
And I'm having to start James Robinson so we will both be rooting for him this week. Maybe he will be the 20-1 lotto ticket. But as Billy Bob says in Bad Santa, "Hope in one hand and $h!t in the other and see which one fills up first."
