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.
Recall when we drafted Ealy and everybody was complaining about drafting another defensive lineman? as Gettlemen said, you can never have too many pass rushers. Defensive end just jumped up to my number 2 concern. 1. WR's. 2. DE's. 3. Special teams.
I guess that depends on one's theology. But I believe he can't stop it without men and women willing to co-labor with him to help solve an issue we caused. The harvest is plentiful, laborers are few and all that...
Yeah, i think that's why he said something about God telling him to lead her. Perhaps he's implying that there's some steps he can help her take toward salvation. idk
God rarely speaks in the context of conscience. Most people know right or wrong. He doesn't tend to remind us. He mostly speaks in guidance or just developing intimacy/building a relationship. The more time you spend with him the easier it tends to be to discern his voice. I'd say about seventy percent of the time I think it's God's voice, it's my own thoughts. But the other thirty percent of the time, I wouldn't trade for anything.
I wasnt speaking in regard to RW specifically. But in speaking about him, I have no idea if he's sincere or not. But I'd say praying doesn't mean everything will workout, particularly when another person is involved like it is in marriage. As far as knowing if it's Gods voice or not, that comes down to how intimate you are with him, how close is the relationship. I'd know my niece's voice in a crowd of thousands, I have a relationship with her. God can be the same way ideally, there's always times when a person isn't sure, especially if it's something you don't want to do.
from a Christian perspective, I'm absolutely serious. Hearing Gods voice is a bedrock of the faith. Why worship a God you can't communicate with? With communication there's no relationship, without relationship there's no intimacy, without intimacy there's no point.
Really? Deciding who to marry is probably the biggest decision a person can make. How could you not (if you're a Christian) spend time in prayer about it? Russell Wilson doesn't mean that he heard an audible voice. 999 times out of a thousand when a Christian says that heard God speak it wasnt an audible voice.
