The mountain has came off

7 posts in this topic

I drove thru there last April, and it is a beautiful area. Its going to be tough to go from SE Tn to North Carolina now with both 64 and I40 being closed.

Good. Keep those people out of our mountains. :biggrinjester:

On a more serious note, so...it looked like they were trying to bust up one rock and then, while they were doing that, the entire mountain fell? Is that what happened?

Did they use TNT to bring down the rest, so that they wouldn't have more slides?

The hoe ram was in the road busting up the big rock, and I believe they noticed small slides starting, and they pulled back. I couldn't believe the size of the rock that seemed to float across the road. Easily the size of three cars.

Slides in that area are a constant problem. Notice the dip of the rock formation towards the road? Same way I-40 is in that area. I can understand it was probably easier to build the road that way, but damn someone should have had a little foresight.

    • This is a hypothetical scenario that maybe should be taken into consideration going into the draft in April.  What part of the team would suffer the most if they lost a key player on the respective side? - If we lose Greg Olsen to injury how much of a drop off is their on offense -If we lose a Safety, DE, or LB how much of a drop off is their on defense -Personally I think the offense would loose basically 1/5 of the production and with no real depth to make an impact.
    • I used to hold out hope, but I think that it's become obvious that the organization really doesn't him like that. He worked very hard to put on a little muscle and refine his game before the past season, but still didn't get any real play, despite those in front of him playing lackluster ball. Throw in the fact that we've added another couple of suspect receivers and are searching for upgrades via the draft, I just don't believe that they believe Byrd is that guy. 
    • How about u educate yourself before being ignorant?
