again, this is a completely false framing of the political dynamics here. the dude on the left exists in tiny numbers on dailykos and has virtually no political representation. can you show me an active, elected political platform that includes "ban all guns? you sure as hell can find plenty with "no gun limits" as a platform. plus, the mourners in the middle are a red herring, since plenty of other countries have people with mental health issues who manage to not roll out of bed and gun down an elementary school when they're feeling blue. is there a reason we could point to for that?
great film breakdowns there, especially highlighting the single high safety reads leaving one-on-one outside, and the danger of leaving two deep but not bracketing olsen. sounds like thomas bassinger reads the huddle :-)
straw man alert! no one with any political power wants "no guns." it's not no regulation versus no guns, it's no regulation versus regulation. framing it any other way is patently false and conveniently befitting the NRA's narrative, as distributed through the ideological nodes that disseminate through your news and social networks and ultimately construct your worldview.
nice post. there's no question the nfl is structure-oriented in that the talent behind schemes often transcends the talent of the individual player playing in it. also, the fact that so much weight is placed on the quarterback in today's league means that for the majority of positions, the loss of a single talent - spectacular or not - can be pretty easily schemed around. we're seeing the panthers (shula, even!) do this with success. if your quarterback goes down, though? god rest your soul. no scheme in the world can truly save you there.
