    Browns take 2 QBs?

    I think this is a terrible idea if they are thinking of using both #1 and #4 on QBs. In that regard, you automatically lose one impact player, as only one QB can be on the field at the same time. They could easily get a QB and another potentially high impact guy (Barkley, Chubb, Fitzpatrick, etc.). Now, if they are talking using either #1 or #4 plus a second or third round pick, that would potentially make more sense.

    New catch rule video explaining the change

    It seems the “ground cannot cause a fumble” rule is still in effect for straight runs when the person is going down due to contact. However, in the situation of a runner who is not touched, but goes to the ground and loses the ball, that is ruled a fumble. That seems to also be the case for a catch. In the examples shown, the fumble was the result when the receiver was not touched on the way to the ground. When the receiver was touched, the play was dead. See, Dez Bryant play. There is absolutely no change to the “ground cannot cause a fumble” rule.

    Texans Owner Defends Jerry Richardson

    This is the problem with society in general though. People take things as offensive even if those things are not meant to be offensive. Our society looks for the negative in others. “How does what that person said make ME feel? Could it possibly be offensive? If so, I’m taking it that way.” That is exactly what happened to this common cliche. Since it is a common cliche, why didn’t people just look at it for what it is, a metaphor? Why get upset about it if you know it is something commonly said? That makes no sense, and it speaks to a general societal mindset of seeking to cause conflict. On the flip side, could McNair have been a little more aware of the words he chose? Absolutely. While I do not think we should automatically assume the worst about a person and his/her intentions, we, as individuals, should choose our words carefully. However, I still don’t think things should be assumed the worst if there is a lesser intention which could be behind the word/action. I guess that is the criminal defense attorney in me.
  4. Know how you know the Super Bowl coverage starts too early? CBS runs a five minute segment on the Bills fictitiously winning the four straight Super Bowls they lost 20+ years ago.
  5. He's talking about the Seahawks internal clock, I'd imagine. If they had an 0730 EST wake-up, it would be equivalent to an 0430 PST wake-up.
  6. Haven't seen Stewart in a while? Have I just missed him, or is he injured?
  7. The last few games (except the Flacons game) have seemed like college rivalry games for the Panthers. What I mean by that is this: the opposing team is simply playing off of emotion and plays very well initially. However, as we have seen, that emotion is not enough to overcome a superior team. The Panthers have done a fantastic job waiting out that emotion and, more times than not, stripping the emotion away through a big play or two.

    Panthers grooming future GM?

    I don't know if Brandon would do that, seeing that he is a local boy. I went to high school with him in Stanly County. he has stayed with the Panthers this long why not wait it out for the GM job if that is what is next for him? Although he may not have exclusive scouting experience, I have no doubt he has learned the ropes in that regard. He was a sports junkie growing up. He has been with the Panthers for years and worked his way up through the ranks. Plus, he has learned some ways not to do things from Hurney and ways to do things from Gettleman. I would be fine with Brandon taking over after Gettleman and would be extremely happy for a former classmate.

    NFL says Pats guilty, and Brady knew

    I had no idea of what Florio wrote. I just deal with all these burdens of proof on a day-to-day basis in my job. Thought the ones making a big deal of the word "probable" we're just missing the point.

    NFL says Pats guilty, and Brady knew

    It is actually quite easy to see if you read the word in context of how it is used in the report. Investigations, whether they are criminal in nature or internal to an organization, require a burden of proof to either substantiate or unsubstantiate the claims. By using that language in the report, the investigator was merely saying, "The burden has been met." But you all can keep your panties in a was if you'd like.

    NFL says Pats guilty, and Brady knew

    Everyone upset about the word "probable" should read the word in context. The word describes the burden of proof used during the investigation, which sounds to be proof by a preponderance of the evidence. That is a legal standard much lower than proof beyond a reasonable doubt, and it essentially means "the greater probability of the evidence," i.e. more probable than not.

    The Azores

    Flown through and spent the night several times. Windy as all heck from what I remember. Cool feel to the area though.
  13. Owe you some rep, thanks for the info on the Manning case. BTW, I love it when Deac is corrected on military matters. He thinks he knows it all since he swabbed the poopdecks. :)
