Well, at least Panthro is actually addressing the topic. You on the other hand are using this opportunity to rant about unborn fetuses. Seriously? Which by the way is incredibly ironic, you spend all this time speaking up for the "unborn", but casually dismiss lives lost at the hands of deranged lunatics who decided to go on another shooting spree just so you can protect the precious 2nd amendment. In short, you're a piece of poo. So hit the bricks.
I definitely give Ron credit for the start, with all that we have endured so far this year. The true test is going to see just how prepared he has this team after an extra week off. Bye weeks have been unkind to him his first 4 years to put it mildly. That must change. Now.
Eventually the NFL is going to have to move to making almost everything on the field reviewable. With all the money in this sport, and all the technology we have today, still having these blatantly wrong calls is a travesty. Also, full time refs already, why this hasn't been done is beyond me. The NFL is pulling in billions.
If I'm being honest, I'm more concerned about coaching in this matchup. We've got plenty of talent. But it's Ron, and his coaching style of, for example, sitting on a one posession lead early in the 4th quarter, and watching our offense waste crucial drives with stupid ass play calls. To beat teams like the Seahawks, and the best of the NFC, we need to keep our foot on the gas, and go for the jugular. That is what Pete Carroll has been doing in Seattle, and it has gotten him back to back Super Bowl appearances, with one Lombardi trophy.
"zero chance they beat us" is a pretty strong statement regardless. They look weakened a little, but they are still the same team that we have yet to beat, and we will be playing them in their house. I get we are 4-0, but you best believe that they are going to play us as if their season is on the line. I'm all for optimism, but blatantly downplaying them as if we will walk all over them is absurd. We are more than capable of winning, but it's going to be a damn tough game.
I'm aware of this. Which is why I said "most of these shooters", not necessarily including this instance in that regard. I was making a broader point overall though. Would you agree that the growing likelihood these days in America that you could be gunned down by some maniac at any moment is a top problem for our country? The rate in which these tragedies continue to occur is deeply troubling. We are not focusing enough attention getting to the root of this problem, and some of it is just plain willful ignorance on the part of our lawmakers. The politicians in Washington in the pocket of the NRA damn sure aren't going to do anything, these lost lives are just another statistic while the NRA rakes in cash. One thing I will agree on is that there is too much posturing going in general on this issue. But unfortunately, there are too many people on the extreme end who will never waiver in the slightest no matter what when it comes to the second amendment. As long as those people are in power, and those who support that rhetoric continue to blindly put them in power, nothing will change, and lives will continue to be lost.
