Ealy vs. Sam: No contest for G-man (David Newton's latest)

But I am hoping that Ealy can actually get between the tackles with his quickness and disrupt plays on passing downs.

so you're saying a self-described Muslim that believes he or she may be going to heaven by suicide bombing is not at all the same religion as a self-described Muslim that believes that person isn't going to heaven?

--No. I am saying only one can be right. Period.--

as far as I care if someone says "I'm x religion" and most all of their beliefs line up with it, they get included in that religious group, even if they are more or less "extreme" than the majority.  Which is why I try not to classify religious extremists by which religion they are being extreme over, when possible.

 

when you get down to what gets someone into heaven or not ultimately that's up to interpretation of the actions in that person's life related to the scripture of their choosing. --So I can pick any scripture of my choosing and as long as I follow it I can get into heaven, even if it is the complete opposite of another scripture? C'mon, even you have to admit that makes no sense-- so, while it may seem extreme to think of Muslims and Christians as sharing the same God because in today's age there are fewer militant extremist Christians, just remember that a lot of religious texts, the interpretation of what is okay changes based on the 

 

e.g. my mother believes that gay people should be able to get married, that gay people should be priests, that we all share common ancestors with all animals, that the earth is over 4 billion years old, but calls herself a Christian.  Is she one?

I remember watching Mizzu play last season and Kony by far stood out among all the players.  His name was being called almost every play.  He was the true star on that team and he got better when playing against better teams.  He will be a beast he was SECs best kept secret.  He flashed more than Clowney did when they played.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
