PN-G or just football fans in general......

54 posts in this topic

Just a little historical chat for conversation. Also the 89 team season highlights are on youtube. My son will have a new favorite video to watch. 

How would you stack up the 1989 PN-G team versus the 2017 PN-G team? I had a long discussion with a good friend whose brother played on the 89 team and we agreed the 89' team would be too much physically for the finesse style of play we have now. 

Bost was a beast both ways. McGill would do his thing and Robertson was accurate with a big arm and line. On defense the 89' team had people that would hit (Carpenter brothers, Viola, etc) and some that played bat *bleep* crazy and would probably scare the piss out of the kids today (Binagia, Whitehead). The secondary with Bost, Gizzi, Droddy, Hart and Scott Young could hang as well so the wild card would be RJ. 

Thoughts?

Don’t need to go back to 89.....PNG has had better teams under Faircloth than this 2017 team 

That is not the point. We were having a discussion about culture. 1989 to 2017 is a good generation gap and the question I posed to him was could the teams like 89' keep up with the spread offenses of today. So we dove down further and I wanted to get the boards opinion. Not for finger pointing or anything like that. Just some football talk for people who were there to see both.

I know nothing about the '89 Indians, but the 2017 Indians would destroy them. Players are better these days. Coaches are better these days. That's just the way it is my man

Ha. Good stuff. Maybe better at drawing up a 4 man WR play but some coaches still have't figured out that when you have two WR's to the left you should probably have 2 DB's covering them with a 3rd shaded over.

Some 1999 PN-G vs Lamarque perhaps one of PN-G's greatest performances as an underdog at least in my time. I have the 1999 PN-G Shertz Clemons game. The 1999 State Championship game. I have the 1996 PN-G vs Bridge City game featuring Capadona as well.

If you have not seen the 1989 team the running game was a beast. Who could forget the secondary on that team was really good lead by Bost and the speedster Droddy

Well. This is the truth and I would put money on this. 89 team wins easily. 17 team might not score. Droddy, Hart, Bost in the secondary. Robertson could throw, Ron would run for days. Whitehead would kill folks, and The Carpenter brother would give concussions. Gizzi would get twice the yardage as usual... Not even close. Ohh, and the coaching, would shut BF down... All you folk are guessing, I was there..... As well as PBF. Not a contest. BF still scratching hear a week later after DM slapped him.... MB on the defensive side, Crommet on the offensive side. DC was Fisher... Now lets hear some paddy cake. Any of you that played with me know what I am talking about..........

We can look back even furthur I have some 1975 State Championship clips at home as well

In no way could the 17 PNG hold a candle to 75 state champs  

1 the 17 team wouldn’t have the ball much. 2 think of the coaching staff

Doug. Bush. Davis. Nunez. Carswell. Clearman All hall of famers. THINK ABOUT that for a moment,  let it soak in. Then Troy and the other long time staff

i have the game video. You new it was over when Jack caught the ball Giblin blew up. Only lost 1 game in 75 and last game of 76 seasons 27 & 2

The had big ol Whitehead that would maul anyone today, and also had an all American kicker.

Robertson would have also thrived throwing the ball in this modern day offense.

*sigh* when u wanna debate but can't give a good opinion because you weren't alive. I was born in 91.

All I can really say then 2017 takes a Loss, but I put money that Roschon is a problem all night.

Lol, what can I say I'll never bet against him.

Here is the last 2 minutes of the 1999 team another culture to look at

 

 

That’s what a good brothers suppose to say.

Only 11 years old at the time, I was at every game they played in 89.  On the sidelines for some of them.  

Like I mentioned, that A&M consolidated team was for real, and was led by an amazing QB much like your brother and only scored 31.  

The 2017 version would get beat down badly!

      He did cost himself a lot and should have came out last year and been a top 10 pick. With so many bigs and huge draft he should have stayed in college station one more year to get back in the top 10.  I was reading reports of a package deal for them to get mo bamba but as of now nothing has planed out

      See the response on here by republicans is why blacks won’t vote republican. Rather than facts I see two users claim lbj welfare reform was what got blacks to the left which is just a lie to belittle the black vote democrats took the black vote from the republicans with fdr decades before lbj early 30s mid 40s Democratic was already approaching 80% with black voters. Lbj got 94% because the civil rights acts he will eventually sign (jfk got him that).  You can vote lbj who’s for the civil rights act or for Goldwater who opposed it. I’m more at awe it was only 94%. So I think history has shown that Black will vote will change parties for the side who earns the vote. the left haven’t earned it as late but the right haven’t even tried .

      When I say policies im not talking legislation more identity politics. Crack has been a problem in urban neighborhoods since the 80s  opioids move into the suburbs and its a national crisis.  Confederate flag confederate statues. The refusal to address even the slightest wrong doing of the police. The constant Chicago reference for only political points.  The assumption that we’re all welfare recipients that vote democratic to keep food stamps. The failure to even address us on the political stage.  I can go on and on.

      I slightly preferred Mitchell Robinson because his upside is monstrous (could be a perennial all star - 7 footer with skills), especially that late.  But Williams is probably a safer pick.  Won’t be flashy but will be a solid rebounder who defends well. He cost himself a lot of money coming back to play another year in aggieland.  A likely top 10 pick a year ago to barely a first rounder.  Everyone knew this draft was going to be one of the most big heavy in years.  Not sure what he was thinking.
