Ken said the older generation might not be as keen on it but the younger generation sure love it. Keep it up Duursma.
As a member of the older generation, I take offence to this. Heaven knows we need some personality in our football. It's a "hell yeah" from me.

Yeah this 'that's what the modern kids do!' POV is so weird, like kids from other generations, or players more than 19 years old, have never had a distinct celebration before. It's retconning history.

If there's anyone on this list who I'm unequivocally not concerned about developing into a gun, it's X.

Even in their early years, guys like Michael, Kobe and LeBron all missed game winning shots. What never wavered was their inherent belief they'd make it next time.

X has that belief. Just hope that no coach in particular tries (even inadvertently) to coach it out of them.

Sure, but that's only because if the 2018 draft was redone Connor Rozee wouldn't be available at pick 5.
true. the gap between Duursma and Rozee would have been less though. Based on current performance, Duursma would have been in top 5. Be an interesting exercise to list a top 20 based on what we have seen so far.
