It's more like converting an engine from manual transmission to automatic. It seems like they're similar, but the moving pieces are very different. And if you want to do that anyway, you're better off buying a new car.
Dude has had a Patriots sticker/cling thing on his mailbox for like 5 years. Last week as I was driving by I see a fresh out of the pack Seahawks flag hanging from his front porch. I have only met the guy once. Could this be the worst case of Bandwagonism in history?
The Pats cling is still on his mailbox.
Maybe your resident Patriots bandwagoner married a Seahawks bandwagon fan? God help us if they start breeding.
Wait, your group got pissed at your LT for following the orders he was given and upholding the oath he pledged? Not only is your analogy bad, but I have zero respect for those who, because of their own distaste for political or military policies, decide that they are not bound to them or use them as excuses for their own poor judgment. It's the military, for fug's sake, OBEYING ORDERS IS THE fuging JOB DESCRIPTION.
I think you're missing the choices here. There's not a scenario where there's no punishment. The choice the LT had was between handling it himself or passing it up the chain for someone else to handle. There's also the subtext the reason he passed it up the chain was to cover his own ass not necessarily for the benefit of the unit.
If it were all black and white, anybody could be a leader.
Now for the actual Panther relation. I haven't seen the team give up yet, so I still feel it's more a talent issue than effort. I would also argue they're actually trying too hard. They're so worried about giving up the big play, they're tight and not playing loose. Defensive is mostly read and react and they're thinking too much.
I swear, every time any other team signs or trades for a guy, it's guaranteed people will be on here screaming 'WHY DIDN'T WE DO THAT?!!!"
It doesn't matter whether it's a good move, a bad move, someone we need, someone we don't need, what the cap hit would be (apparently we don't have to worry about that) or whether it makes any actual sense.
All that seems to matter is SOMEBODY DID SOMETHING!
Whether or not it was a smart move or a move we could have afforded is apparently irrelevant.
(and people wonder why teams don't listen to fans)
I don't think it's conditioning. I believe the coaching staff has a philosophical belief that DTs should be rotated frequently. Going back to 2012, they've never had a DT take more than 67 percent of snaps (Dwan Edwards).
