  1. The NFL Shield At Midfield added a post in a topic Oher Struggling Early in Camp   

    3 out of 5 OL positions have been upgraded between the 2014 draft and remmers being brought in.  i mean damn we got two new guards who are quality starters in the draft/UDFA and a solid if unspectacular right tackle off the scrap heap midseason.
    you can't do that without serious scouting and film chops

    Having a badass left guard next to him allowed bell to have a borderline decent game or two late in the season.  So long as amini silatolu isn't out there I imagine the left side will be at least a little better.  Oher doesn't even have to be good to improve our LT position.

  3. The NFL Shield At Midfield added a post in a topic PP facing real problems now   

    here i'll clarify-
    "innocent people getting killed for vaccines" is a stupid way to look at what is a complex moral issue.  it's a gross mischaracterization. the treatments, vaccines, and medications that result from research on donated fetal tissue are a side effect rather than the main purpose of elective (or heck let's go crazy and even consider medically necessary) abortions.
    this research builds things that are objectively good for humanity-i think it's relevant to note that rubella was causing thousands of miscarriages a year prior to the introduction of the vaccine.  this is a case of something objectively good being plucked out of something that represents, at best, a moral grey area in the minds of a lot of people.
    the mechanics and logistics of it are what is causing the outrage.  the idea that oh my god these horrible monsters are talking so flippantly about dead baby parts.  people are happy to reap the benefits so long as the source of it isn't staring them in the face, but that's true for a lot of things i suppose.

    what reasoning, all i said was that people in this topic like you have tangibly benefited from abortion before.
    gonna disagree with that?

    merck has acknowledged that the original cell line was derived from an elective abortion in the late 60s.  the vatican has even issued press releases and statements about the dilemma this poses for catholics.

    this board is full of people who've tangibly benefited from elective abortions.  are we just going to continue ignoring that?  even if you're an anti-vaxxer you still live in a country where most people have their MMR vaccines so you have herd immunity working in your favor.  the rubella component was developed with tissue from an elective abortion.  that cell line is still being used to manufacture that vaccine today.
    yeah this isn't pleasant poo to read about but could there just be a nanosecond of introspection before you go wagging your finger and claiming the moral high ground in all of this?

    cancel all research projects and pull all medicines, vaccines, or treatments that were developed with the aid of aborted fetal tissue from the market imo
    it's the ethical thing to do

    eh we heard the exact same stuff about curtis lofton when he became a saint.  two down thumper who was supposed to anchor their run defense which would supposedly make up for his inability to cover the pass.

  15. The NFL Shield At Midfield added a post in a topic Martin doesn't sign retirement papers by 4 pm   

    32 teams passed on him in the draft, including the one that eventually signed him.  as a UDFA he essentially had his pick of any of the teams in the league because everybody would be coming at him with essentially the same offer.  see you say you're not saying or implying anything but then you post something like this:

    you're clearly implying that we had a shot at collins but didn't pursue him instead opting for jonathan martin.  there's no other way to take that statement so you're better off not trying to weasel out of it.  the clear implication is that the panthers could have signed collins but chose not to and jerry richardson blocked it.  of course nobody is actually able to definitively prove that but hey it resonates with people of a certain mindset on this site so i guess you have that going for you.
    for what it's worth, PFT did report that the panthers were among the teams interested:

     http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/05/07/report-lael-collins-in-dallas-to-visit-cowboys/ 
    you're a mega noob so you do get a pass for not realizing that this was discussed to death on this site during the draft.  then right after it when teams were hustling to sign him.  then after that when dallas signed him.  there's a healthy "jerry richardson only wants a team of choirboys" circle jerk that erupts on this site any time the panthers fail to sign/draft some dude with "character concerns" so if you want that to be your posting gimmick you'll be in good company here.
