  1. Mr. Scot added a post in a topic Women USA vs Japan World Cup...   

    I will freely admit I don't watch soccer and don't follow the World Cup, but that doesn't stop me from saying congrats to the US ladies for winning,
    Heck, if we won the world hide and seek tournament, I'd say "good job".

    I'm sure someone will say that means you're doing it right.

    Of all the crazy things...
    And let's be clear.  You don't have to be drunk to do something stupid with fireworks.
    Being a teenager can be just as effective.
    (my friends and I learned that lesson quite clearly a few decades back)

    Those guys are actually good to have around.  Every team has 'em.
    It's when you have too many of 'em or they start in front of better players that you start having issues.

    Might not be as absurd as it sounds.
    Talented players generally make lousy mentors/coaches because they haven't had to work as hard. Guys who had to fight for what they get do a better job teaching others to do the same.
    And regardless of what the idiots who think he's Jerry Richardson's favorite player may think, Bersin's earned his way via a lot of hard work.

    Kids today will never get that.
    No, we couldn't just switch it to TNT or USA.

    Well, if you're going in order from smartest to dumbest, you certainly got the lowest level right.

    I see I'm not the only one who thinks this feels backward.

    That'd be a lot easier to figure out if we knew the source.
    I found Gosselin's rankings for 2013, but not 2014.
    If they got it from Football Outsiders, they didn't link it.

    I think they believe you haven't got a single clue what you're talking about, or at least they would if they ever heard you talk.
    Everybody here certainly knows that.

    Longtime Panther fans have a sense that we're generally among the most injured teams.
    Don't know how true that actually is (never did a stat comparison).  I suspect it's at least a little overblown, but that's just an opinion and I'm not up for researching it.

    There are more at the link.
    This is the first I can recall reading of "bouts of immaturity" from Ealy, though there was some non-specific discussion in All Pro before. I'd like to know more about that.  Could be just the adjustment from being a college kid to a professional athlete.  I guess we'll see.
    I've said before I think undrafted players - even the good ones - are gonna have a tougher time making our squad in years to come.  As the roster improves, that's just a natural consequence.
    The biggest issues in my mind are how the OL plays out and who shows up at DE.

    My sister had a TV like that some years back.  Since she didn't like having to get up to change the channel, she went out and bought a universal remote for it. 
    My nephew and I had to explain to her why it didn't work.
    We asked her "What did you expect it to do? Reach out and turn the knob for you?"
