Stars don’t owe any loyalty to bad organizations
Chris Paul was traded to the Rockets after he informed the Clippers that he intended to join Houston in free agency. Paul was apparently fed up with the dysfunction in the Clippers organization, and thought the Rockets gave him a better chance to win.
Similarly, Paul George has told the Pacers he won’t re-sign in Indy. Colin has always supported player mobility, and doesn’t think players like George or Paul owe any loyalty to teams that haven’t surrounded them with the talent needed to contend.
He feels NFL NFL quarterbacks like Andrew Luck should follow the NBA players lead and leave bad teams and incompetent management. who’s career will probably be shortened because he’s been surrounded by incompetence. Why stick around?
For a star today, there’s no dignity in sticking with a losing team and wasting the best years of a promising career.
Colin’s 1st 2017 NFL Prediction: The Cowboys will only win 1 or 2 more games than the Rams
The Rams and the Cowboys finished 2016 heading in polar opposite directions.
Even though the franchises appear to be trending in opposite directions, and the Cowboys won 9 more games than the Rams last year, Colin predicts Dallas will only win 1 or 2 more games than L.A. this year.
He thinks the Rams could be one of the most improved teams in the NFL after hiring offensive wunderkind Sean McVay, and making significant upgrades to their offensive personnel. All should help Jared Goff’s development in his second year and they already have a top tier defense. Colin thinks the Rams will be one of the most improved teams in the NFL, and could double their win total from 4 to 8 this year.
While many are predicting the Cowboys will continue to trend upward after a surprise 13 win season last year, Colin thinks they’ll regress. The main reason is one of the toughest schedules in the league, including facing the tough AFC West out of conference, and finishing the year with Washington, New York, Oakland, Seattle and Philly.
“The gap was 9 wins last year, and the Cowboys and Rams will only have a 1 or 2 game gap this year.”
