I mean it's definitely a good group.

Harmon could be special on Sundays but I don't know if the others have a better ceiling than Cotchery (which is still solid.)

Justin may have meant the best college wr group period, which is silly, but if you think this isn't our best group of receivers, what is?

No issue with saying a very good or even best group at State, but that isn’t what was said. He said best he’s ever seen. But he is also just trolling and not worth a real response.

Also our crew from 2002 and 2003 were both strong and easy enough to argue as good if not better than current.

for the "finley isn't clutch" argument...i get it, he's had chances and come up short. but obviously the Wake game last year and Clemson game the year before are pretty obvious instances of Finley doing his job and the loss being due to other factors. also, any time the defense gives up 51...i'm not gonna say that the our starting QB was the problem. throw for close to 500 yards and score 41 points...that ought to win most games. so yeah, he didn't lead us to a game winning drive and he's not a perfect QB (lol at justin thinking we or anybody else thinks finley is the #1 pick), but my takeaway from that game isn't "finley needs to be more clutch".

He probably won't be the first quarterback taken. Might not be the second either. Hard to predict at this point. But he's still pretty pretty pretty good.

I meant the best group ever at NC State and currently what is arguably the best in the country. Not best ever in the NCAA.

There have been better individual receivers at NC State (Torry Holt, mainly), but I don't think there's ever been a group here as deep and as good as this one.

Quote :
"On Saturday, Finley crossed the 9,000 career passing yards threshold in the Wolfpack’s 47-28 victory over Florida State, becoming only the third player in school history to do so.

1) Philip Rivers – 13,484
2) Jamie Barnette – 9,461
3) Ryan Finley – 9,067

In the next two games, Finley will most likely pass Jamie Barnette, moving into 2nd place in school history. Barnette played 4 years at NC State, compared to Finley’s 3"

ive honestly never seen a qb before who has never actually won a game when the chips are down. multiple chances to come back down a score? nope. tie game? nope. up a field goal and just need to make one play to ice it? nope

He's ready many interesting books about clutch victories. He doesn't need to experience one.

In his defense Riley killed us with two big drops, but I agree it is hard to remember him ever leading a big comeback.

it is like a curse. even horrendous qbs can do things like throw horrible passes that DBs whiff on that then turn into TDs to win a game. yeah riley makes that catch and hes done it. or angeline catches the td and this isnt a convo. emezie fumbling at the goal line last year. it is a comedy, and of course for it to be this extreme its more than just not executing. its ridiculously bad fortune

He has no 4th Q comebacks. But to be fair the Clemson loss in 2016 and wake loss in 2017 should’ve been clutch wins based on what he did on the final drives. But a missed FG and fumble at the goal line negated that.

Most passing yards at NC State:

1) Philip Rivers – 13,484
2) Jamie Barnette – 9,461
3) Ryan Finley – 9,441

Finley's only played 3 seasons, while Barnette and Rivers both had 4. Finley still has at least 4 games left.

But yeah, Finley is totally "overrated" and just isn't very good.

Giglio bringing the heat. Missed this guy last season

Quote :
"In six ACC games this year, Ryan Finley has attempted 33 passes inside the opponent's 20-yard line,

*Five* of those 33 passes (15.1 percent) have been intended for Kelvin Harmon. Four have been completed and three went for touchdowns.

THERE IS NO REASON TO OVERTHINK THIS"

Quote :
"That doesn’t place the blame solely on the star quarterback. Finley threw for 374 yards and he wasn’t the reason N.C. State ran for 47 yards (on 27 carries). But it’s not unfair to ask a future NFL quarterback to provide a signature moment at some point over the course of three seasons.

Finley has been unable to do that in a clutch situation. Nine times since 2016, Finley has had a chance to win or tie a game with a late drive. Nine times, he has failed to convert."


yeah pretty much.

Water finds its level. Finley had a good game, just a ton of dropped passes. He's exactly what his stats say he is. v good.
