picking off a screen pass usually = OT didn't do their job and cut down the DE. see peppers' pick six against arizona in 2009.

It's not every day the Saints** oline "blocks" for him

people make waaaaayyyy too big a deal of the probowl game.

there was nothing there to learn about cam. if you were actually paying attention then you would have seen that the defense was playing harder against cam than against anyone while the rest of the guys on offense were taking it easy.

not that that matters....it was the probowl and it doesn't matter. it's a joke game that most the people playing in it just goof off while a few try to make a name for themselves. it shouldn't even be played at all.

most people who had anything to say about it in that regard had an axe to grind.

here was the pattern:

cam makes pro bowl => "doesn't matter/popularity contest/not a real game/means nothing" => cam plays like poo in the pro bowl due to a confluence of factors => "this is proof that what i was saying all along is true/cam blows/cam has been exposed"

yeah i wasn't visualizing it properly. i had an image in my head of CJ beating his man and breaking in to the backfield to get his hands on the ball for some reason.

And Sorensen starts in late again...

Tom Sorensen@tomsorensen

Several near altercations at practice. Steve Smith & Captain Munnerlyn start to go at it. The Captain takes nothing. Beason intercedes.

Cam Newton picked off on back to back passes by Charles Johnson and Chris Gamble Tuesday. Good day for defense. And for rain.

I'm actually loving the fact that our defense is getting so many picks. Turnovers is our biggest issue on defense.

    • From the ssa wiki part on its history: The Social Security law was very unpopular among many groups, especially farmers, who resented the additional taxes and feared they would never be made good. They lobbied hard for exclusion. Furthermore, the Treasury realized how difficult it would be to set up payroll deduction plans for farmers, for housekeepers who employed maids, and for nonprofit groups; therefore they were excluded. State employees were excluded for constitutional reasons (the federal government cannot tax state government). Federal employees were also excluded. Many textbooks, however, falsely indicate that the exclusions were the product of southern racial hostility toward blacks; there is no evidence of that in the record.[15] Other scholars have replicated and endorsed DeWitt's analysis, agreeing that the exclusions were made by policy experts on technical grounds and were not grounded on racial hostility. Rodems and Shaefer note in all other countries unemployment insurance programs "excluded domestic and agricultural workers when they were first implemented, a fact that the key New Deal policy makers were well aware of.   Interesting stuff.

    • this is an old story that anti-progressive media is pushing. all that happened is she applied for a loan for the college, for which they're required to submit a list of their donations so the office knows that they're able to pay back the loans. she submitted the list but included bequeathmets on the donor list instead of as a separate list, assuming they counted as donations. that's it. that's the entire story. it's a minor paperwork error that comes with a small fine.
