    Interesting. But are they Preachers or are they Pharisees? Perhaps from the inside looking out I see it different, but none of them scream "Jesus lovers" to me. They align themselves with Christian ideology, sure, but they don't seem to have any motivation I'm familiar with. I must admit though, from the outside looking in, since they hold near identical beliefs, Pharisees and Preachers look the same. 
    "backlash to everything that'd come out of the 60s: social upheaval, sexual immorality, post-nationalism" Do you think any of this in the 60's came about partially because of political influence from the left or was it result of national and natural progressivism? I guess what I'm asking is, did Reagan and Cheney and the other crusaders believe, rightly or wrongly, that liberal influencers dipped their toes in the political area in the 60's and then went "what y'all can do, we can do better?"

    oh, no, I agree with the republicans near miraculous inability to compromise in recent years, I just didn't know that preachers were the reason.

    Really? You look at the Republican Party and think it's under the control and influence of preachers? 
    In what way? Genuinely curious.

    His strength happens to be J-Stew weakness: vision. CAP sees holes fast and gets through them. Even in Stewarts prime I thought he had below average vision, he was so great after first contact that it didn't matter. 
    At this point I still think Stewart May be the better overall back though.

    You're right. I didn't think it through. Though I didn't say anything definitive. I said I had doubts.

    A secular society is different than secular individuals though, right? I, personally have no doubt that secular individuals can be as morally righteous as religious ones, but secular society, a large community, I do have doubts about.
    and btw those concerns have nothing to do with Murder:stealing:and all the other sins that are obviously wrong without need for book to tell us so.

    Addison really does look small. Maybe he's built more compact?

    I think it's the language that our blind lady used that triggered memories of Caitlyn in Jangler. Everything was identity based. The way she phrased her previous discomfort sounded familiar is all. 
    I dont think its it's the same thing tho.

    It seems to me that those that favor stricter gun laws and those that want to defund PP have the same goal mind, save potential lives. They should team up.

    Unfortunately I just have to trust the decisions makers to make the right decisions because I have no idea who I'd pick.

    Perhaps this game isn't just about evaluation, but reps as well. With all the RB's we have I'm sure CAP wasn't getting all the reps necessary.

    And can we please re-think what we define as weapons. I've mention this before, and I think Mr.Scot mentioned it in this thread, weapons aren't just WR's.
    in fact if I could list weapons that would help a young QB, receiver would be like number 5. 
    1. Offensive Line: you give the QB time and protection.
    2. Defense. You give a QB short fields. You give him turnovers. 
    3. Running game. Manageable third downs. Keeps the defense guessing. 
    4. TE -- middle of the field, easily exploitable one on one match ups.
    5. WR
    I heard this a long time ago and I still believe it. The closer you are to the snap of the ball the more important you are (not counting the C obviously)
    When was the last elite or even dominant or even very good Wide Out that's won the SB? Jerry Rice? 
    WR's are important, but if our team executes the way we think they can, we'll be just fine. Top 5 D, Top 10 running game, Above Average protection, Cam being Cam=playoffs.

    Is balance better though? I really don't know, I'm asking. 
    Would you rather have the #10th ranked O and the #10th ranked D or #1 D and the #20th ranked O? I'm not sure I don't choose the later. 
    I guess part of it depends on what the rankings are based on: Points Per game, yards, etc. But to me the physicality of the game always made me lean defense. 
    So why is balance between the two sides better than being elite on D and below average on O? I can think of only two potential reasons: The average-ness of the offense leaving the defense on the field too long, and therefore hindering the D. But if it's truly an elite  D shouldn't they step up? A la 2013 Division clinches win against the Aints. 2: the rarity and difficulty of building and maintaining elite players on one side of the ball. What see it with Seattle now. Everyone believes they're one of the main reasons for the teams success and wants to be paid accordingly. 
    This wasn't in response to the Panthers/Colts situation, just was interested in personal team building philosophies. 
    Because I left it out, I obviously don't think much of Elite O/bad D. It just hasn't proved to work over time, though if they continue to fiddle with the rules it just might.
