#2599939 West Virginia chemical spill prompts state of emergency, water ban in 9 counties

Posted by Mr. Scot on 10 January 2014 - 12:33 PM

Spoke to my sister. In her opinion, the story is overblown.

She said they can't use water for anything but the bathroom until further notice, but she believes it'll be resolved quickly. Apparently it wasn't known for hours, but she's heard no reports of anyone being sick or anything (though she's sure several people will start experiencing grave symptoms shortly after contacting their lawyers).

As far as repercussions, she expects to see a lot of politicians on TV expressing all kinds of moral outrage, but not much else.

And just to be clear, my sister is a rabid, ultraliberal "Republicans are evil" Democrat.

Because the people responsible and the ones who would be in charge of sending someone to jail are extremely well connected.

One thing you guys might wanna realize before talking about Republican and Tea Party influences affecting this issue: West Virginia is quite possibly the single most Democrat heavy state in the country. Republicans are all but irrelevant. Some exist, but they're basically powerless to do much of anything but make speeches.

The political machinery and corruption are completely ingrained in the system and have been for decades. Nobody much cares to root it out because...it's West Virginia.

And also, for the record, I've got a lot of family in the area where all this is happening.


#2599141 Bay Area Writer: Kaepernick One-Read QB, Cam Actually Reads Defenses

Posted by Mr. Scot on 09 January 2014 - 10:53 PM

 

Fellas, it should be noted that this "Grant Cohn" character, is well known in San Francisco's "alternative lifestyles" community.  One anonymous source went as far as to say he had witnessed several different 49er facility managers flouting his unwarranted advances.  

 

As such, I and many 49er fans are convinced his articles/blogs are his reprisal towards our franchise.  

 

One should note, he favors the Panthers this weekend and coincidentally his "needs" have always been regarded as "resilient".

 

 

The analysis comes from Trent Dilfer.

 

Does he also have an axe to grind against the 49ers?
 




#2599115 Bay Area Writer: Kaepernick One-Read QB, Cam Actually Reads Defenses

Colin "King" Kaepernick, Nevada - 38  (Also he got accepted to Harvard, but declined)

 

 

Not quite the full story...

 

Dartmouth, Harvard and Yale recruited him hard, but Kaepernick's dream was to play Division I football. San Jose State coaches dangled a scholarship, then disappeared. Oregon State expressed strong interest, then stopped calling. Tennessee told Colin, "You're the No. 1 player on our board," and invited him for a visit. A week before the trip, a Tennessee coach called to cancel the visit and rescind the scholarship offer. And that's how Kaepernick ended up at the University of Nevada.

 

Taking the wraps off Kaepernick

 

I have to wonder why so many schools gave him the stiffarm.




#2599071 Riverboat Ron Called Rex A Mental Midget : Gosh what does he call Kap

Posted by Mr. Scot on 09 January 2014 - 10:32 PM

Rivera confounded Peyton Manning in the playoffs. And the media expects a glorified halfback to bamboozle him?

 

Worth remembering Gettleman is involved in the scouting now too.
 




#2599061 Bay Area Writer: Kaepernick One-Read QB, Cam Actually Reads Defenses

Posted by Mr. Scot on 09 January 2014 - 10:28 PM

My favorite part-

And Newton doesn’t need great receivers – he doesn’t have any. Kaepernick does. Kaepernick needs Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis, or else the other team can double-cover Kaepernick’s primary receiver, and then Kaepernick is out of options.

The same reason Alex Smith was able to take them to the NFCS.

 

 

Actually, I think these paragraphs are more telling...

 

Trent Dilfer, who played for Shula when Shula was the Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator from 1996 to 1999 and currently is an analyst for ESPN, recently told a Bay Area radio station there are no progressions in the 49ers’ passing game. “They’re calling a play for a defense, for a player and, if that play is called wrong, that second, third, fourth option isn’t going to get the ball very often. They don’t have the type of offensive structure and Colin isn’t the type of quarterback that there are five eligible receivers and anyone can get the ball.”

 

This style of passing offense allows coaches to do most of the thinking, and it makes quarterback, the most difficult position in sports, much easier to play: Just fire the ball to the primary receiver if he’s open and, if he’s covered, run for your life.

 

When the 49ers’ passing game is clicking and Kaepernick is hitting wide-open receiver after wide-open receiver, that means Greg Roman is guessing correctly. He’s calling plays designed to get one player open against the type of coverage he expects the opposing team to use on that play. When Roman guesses incorrectly, you don’t see Kaepernick reset his feet and find his second and third targets. There are no second and third targets. Those guys are decoys clearing space. When Roman guesses incorrectly, Kaepernick has to flip the ball to a running back in the flat, or scramble, or get sacked.

 

Shula’s passing game does not work that way.

 

The success of Shula’s passing game does not depend on Shula guessing right. It depends on his quarterback, Cam Newton, making good decisions. This is the essence of the “erto.”

 

“A good decision means (Newton) is getting the ball out there on time, his feet are set, he’s going to the right guy,” Shula told the Charlotte Observer. “When he’s making those good decisions, we’ve won games.”

 

“I don't think he's just throwing to one particular guy anymore based on the pre-set,” Panthers’ tight end Greg Olsen said about Newton to the New York Daily News. “He's letting the play kind of unfold the way it's designed and goes bang, bang, bang. It takes him to the right guy more times than not. That's when you're playing quarterback at a high level.”

 

You never hear Harbaugh talk about Kaepernick that way.

 

Ouch :unsure:

Maybe if he wasn't unemployed, he could have tried to get a winner's share of this Sunday's game.

 

But since the team released him...

I will picture Sam standing with them, his hands on theirs, pounding out the beat...

 

And after that, I will picture him on the sidelines standing with his team.
