basically a clown car... i fit so much poo in my '07. back seats fold flat, which was a major selling point to me. since the wife and i go to several camping festivals a year, we had to be able to pack a ton of poo in the car.
i average about 38mpg's... on the road trips i can pull 42-45. just rolled 150k miles last weekend and have had zero necessary work done outside of regular maintenance. my brother bought an '09 and has had the exact same results with his
my parents gave me over 80 records for the record player i got a few years ago.
all the old stuff zeppelin, hendrix, crosby stills and nash, pink floyd, grateful dead (i wanted to burn them), the beatles, and some random artists i've never heard of that i will get around to listening to.
i just bought kendrick lamar's good kid maad city on vinyl and it kicks major ass. gonna keep that one in mint condition.
i'll gladly take those dead vinyl's off your hands if they're causing you too much pain
my father in law passed last april and my wife and i got all of his stuff... The Band, anything with Jerry Garcia, Dylan, Zeppelin, Hendrix... all amazing stuff
the new stuff I've bought include Jack Johnson's new album and some of his older stuff, Railroad Earth's latest album, The Avett Brothers The Carpenter, The Lumineers (if you don't know this, look it up - AMAZING), Lotus, STS9... I'm sure I'm missing some
I think we have gotten away with the short throws on early downs. I believe we had specifically tried to play ball control offence to keep the d fresh. However unsuccessful 1st and second down runs leave us with 3rd and long. we are not set up to give protection that long. I think we need to mix up some short passes in on 1st and second down in order to make 1st downs more manageable. By throwing some short easy completions you get cam in rhythm, and allow our wr a chance to get used to catching. Once they are you run some play action and hit down field. we have lost our dink and dunk plays that had us looking improved on offence. I think our game plan is working but i think we could do alot better with a small adjustment.
all of this
i feel like the playcalling has swung back towards the long ball, which isn't helping when our o-line is as questionable as it's been all season. i felt like when we were in our best rhythm offensively, we were hitting short routes underneath to olsen and the wide-outs or having the option to dump the ball off to d.will or tolbert... it seems like those guys are having to stay in to help with pass protection more now, probably because of the long developing routes we seem to have gone back to
also, it seems like the read option with the chance of cam actually taking off have been removed completely... while i hated the heavy read option offense, that was a huge weapon to have in our arsenal and i'm not sure if shula has removed those plays completely, if cam's just dinged from a full season of football to the point that it's not a good idea or if it's being saved for postseason football... but it seems to me when cam takes off and makes a few plays with his legs it makes him more confident in all facets of his game
