    Look guys.

    ... You know what? I had about a 3-4 paragraph post about how we're still going to be a playoff team and things are going to eventually gel, and even if we aren't a #2 seed that does not mean we aren't going to be a force come playoff time. I really believe that.

    But I know that no one is going to listen and it's just going to get flamed, so instead, I deleted that and you get this:

    ...

    Your level headedness isn't welcome here. So I am going to flame this post just because you even contemplated being level headed!!!

    I want the KoolAid you're drinking sir.

    It's called not getting too high after a win or too low after a loss.

    We're hitting a stretch of a few "low losses".

    Obviously that means there is NO chance for us to turn it around, right?

    Might as well just forfeit our games I suppose?

    K, my last post was obviously a joke, but this one isn't: You can't play the level-headed card and then throw out hyperbole like those last two sentences at the end.

    He's losing every game by a couple points and is without the teams best player and team captain.

    It's not his fault the front office gave him the worst bench ever and allowed Granger to wait all offseason to get surgery. I still can't believe they knew about this right after the playoffs and they didn't do the surgery during the offseason. This new front office is brain damaged.
    Ian and Green were solid signing. Giving up DC for Ian was dumb, but I like Ian. DJ was just a terrible signing.

    It's all on the coach. This team has no offense...still, after 3 years. DC didn't just magically become good again in Dallas. It's that Dallas has a great coach that knows how to get the best out of his players. Vogel doesn't know how to get the best from the players on the roster. If guys aren't executing properly, again, that is on the coach. Guys aren't making shots cause they really can't get many easy buckets. Comes down to the coach cause he can't implement any type of offense.

    If Vogel isn't on the hot seat soon, then I don't think Walsh really cares what happens to this team.

    Even without Granger there is a ton of talent on this team and they just stink.

    I really want to know what Shaw contributes, cause to me, it doesn't look like much. Too much talent here to be playing like crap. I'm ready for SVG or Sloan.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    They are hitting an stretch of few losses against crappy teams I can't imagine what's going to happen with a harder schedule.

    If we are trying to be positive in any fashion, our defense is stellar.
    Not really. Toronto is without Kyle Lowry, far and away their best player. Washington was without their only NBA starter caliber players. Minnesota was without Rubio, Love and I forget who else. We gave up 101 to the Spurs, and the Hawks have a fairly poor offense. This is the easy part of the schedule, guys.

    Wait til we start playing good (or even healthy) teams and start losing by 30. No heart, no hustle. Blaming it on Granger's absence is the most pathetic excuse imaginable, yet that's all I've heard from the Pacers players and (sadly) Frank Vogel. And that's another reason Vogel has to go. If he thinks it and says it, of course the players will too.

    Btw, where's the sunshine crowd from the Washington win?

    Can't blame it on playing games on the road or being tired anymore. What excuses are left?

    Quarter-serious, semi-ridiculous comment: IU could average more points per game this year than the Pacers.

    So if Collison didn't quietly ask for a trade this offseason I'm going to be pissed.

    Seriously. That Dallas trade is looking horrid.

    Also, DJ has done nothing for this team. Has he even scored ten points combined this whole season?

    Roy needs to get his head out of his *** as well. In the meantime play through Hill, Lance, Tyler and West. They look like the only ones who give a damn right now.

    Sigh. I hope this gets better.

    I'm not panicking yet, but this has been bad so far. Only good thing is we have a game tomorrow.

    I'm not panicking yet, but DJ has looked just awful. I can't believe it's the same player I've watched the past two years. Truly a let down.

    Man....where do we go from here? I would almost bet the farm that the two guys that a lot of people thought were the future of the franchise(Paul George, Hibbert) never come anywhere near fans or management's expectations. I never trusted either one but that's just me.

    @MikeWellsNBA: Good news: Pacers set a franchise record for fewest pts allowed n a quarter w 5 in the 4th. Bad news: They still couldn't win the game.

    It's been suggested before, but why isn't Vogel playing Plumlee? I understand the implications but you've seriously got to consider limiting or benching Hibbert soon. Come up with a fake injury if necessary, but no team in the NBA is going to be successful with a starting center shooting under 38%, especially when he's their highest paid player. That's just crippling. Time for Plumlee to get some minutes; at least he dunks and will be able to catch alleys from Lance/Hill/DJA

    I'd rather have Ben Hansbrough be the backup PG over DJ at this point.

    DJ looks like an NBDL player. He's made like one good pass and missed 90% of his shots.

    I actually think Plumlee would give just as much or more than Hibbert right now.

    Sadly, that isn't a crazy statement to make.

    What the heck is Barbosa doing right now? We need offense bad and right now he would be better than anybody on the Pacers other than Hill and West.
