    Take what the defense gives you.  Trust those around you to do their job.  Trust your defense.
    I'm going to go with Big Picture, Cam is starting to really understand situational awareness, and it's showing up on game day.

  2. thefuzz added a post in a topic let's take a quick glance at turnover differential   

    Man you guys are something else.
    I can't say that I wouldn't have done the exact same thing.  He was going to be drafted very high, no. 1 overall in 11 or 12.  He wanted to finish his degree, wanted a shot at a title, and wasn't like most kids who can't pass up the paycheck if he was injured.
    In addition to that, his father played in the league, and still had very close ties to many in the NFL.  We had just fired our HC, but had not cleaned house and let the GM stay.  We didn't have a head coach, offensive coordinator, etc....Luck, and I'm not talking about Andrew, knew this may be a wild franchise for a while, and in the best interest of his son, probably told him to stay and come out next year.
    Not shocking, and he has been to an AFC title game, but the tides seem to have turned, and Indy is back to it's old ways, while we are building a long term contender.
    I'm glad he stayed, but I'm not so sure that he is any longer.

    You and I will never agree on the bolded part.
    Hurney seemed to be solid in the 1st, but after that.....whew.

  4. thefuzz added a post in a topic How do you guys feel when an announcer says insert fan base here travels well?   

    I think that you will notice that teams with lots of recent wins, and/or National Titles or SB's will always "travel well".
    Most of them arrive via bandwagon.

    Said it before, and will say it again, if laws were broken, make them stand trial.
    Ooops, sorry, I promise we will do better....just doesn't cut it any longer.

  6. thefuzz added a post in a topic What's your solution to the gun issue?   

    I also don't think that as many people owned guns as what we see in the movies.  Yes, there probably was 1 shotgun per family, but probably not if they lived in town, or didn't have a man around.
    Awfully expensive tool back then unless you were out and about a lot.

  7. thefuzz added a post in a topic What's your solution to the gun issue?   

    Start with no plea deals when using guns or weapons to commit a crime.  Mandatory real sentences.  I prefer to enforce the laws on the books first before adding more.
    Second, to purchase any firearm you need to have a mandatory wait time to receive those firearms.
    Third, track any and all purchases in a federal database.  If you sell firearms, you must be a member of said database, and keep real records.  Track any and all purchases.
    Maybe a little crazy, but supply DNA and fingerprint when purchasing firearm, and the authorities have however many days in the "cooling off" time to process it with the serial numbers.
    I don't like the idea of gun roundups, but I would be OK with State/Local governments paying a heavy "reward" for bringing in firearms and turning them over.

    Probably aught to get accustomed to it to be honest.  KB and Ginn are never going to have elite hands...just not their game.

    I'm going to remind myself that it's one game, but we do need some help with our pass rush, and I hope he can be that.

    He said that he would "go get her smokes"...implies cigarettes.

  11. thefuzz added a post in a topic Are we not better than the Lions?   

    Yes, we are better than the Lions.
    And I fully expect this game to be really close, barring either of the QB's piling up INT's.

  12. thefuzz added a post in a topic WalletHub: Best and Worst States for Teachers   

    The mentor thing doesn't bother far as losing the older, experienced ones...sometimes change is good.  But it is a good point.
    My biggest push would be to make the salary competitive for what others are getting for having the same amount of education.  Then to remove the pension, that is going to be a huge long term cost for the state.  Get the paychecks up there, and do some heavy matching on 401's.  Let the teachers that have "paid into" the retirement system get theirs, but you have to start rolling that thing back.
    For as long as I can remember, there have been lines for firefighters, EMT's, and police....teaching was the exact same way...if they aren't lining up any longer, changes will be made.

  13. thefuzz added a post in a topic KK to be Great   

    We have the ability to carry Star through 2017 and I fully expect us to do so.
    We can carry KK through the 2016 season, and I fully expect him to be signed to an extension before the start of the 2016 season if he stays healthy.  Then we can have another full year to evaluate Star before having to make that call.
    IMO both will be here through 2017, and both could be here through 2020 if they stay healthy.
