There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.
Maybe someday Lance will learn it is not about the stats but the W's.
W's will bring more money and awards than stats.
If we're that concerned about Lance's locker room presence and the open market for him is not that good, why not give him the option of a shorter-term deal expiring at the end of 2015/2016, after which the cap is expected to go up significantly and Hibbert's contract expires. As a free agent that year, Lance could get a massive payday from the Pacers or someone else if he performs well over the next two seasons.
Not sure if Lance would be open to that at all, and I imagine it would be bad business on the Pacers' side to scale back the deal somewhat, but it is an interesting hypothetical.
Walsh wasn't lying when he said way too many people are still too sensitive from the brawl
If every single knuckle head in the NBA started a brawl with the fans, we'd all have to sit behind glass like we were at a hockey game. The melee in Detroit was a once in a lifetime thing most likely. I find it highly unlikely Lance or a player like him would ever cause that.
None of the players publicly said Lance was the problem. It's all rumors and hearsay. For all we know, Chris Copeland could have been the problem
David "And One" West
Everyone was part of the problem
All players deserve blame because literally all of them played like garbage down the stretch.
