In Topic: 12-year-old in Cleveland with a BB gun shot by cop

Today, 03:22 PM

They are trained to shoot first without hesitation.



Actually, no. They're not (at least, not at any agency that I am aware of). 


Follow commands and this doesn't happen. The kid made a dumb mistake. Well, a couple of them. He had a toy gun with the orange scratched off, which makes it look VERY real. Then, he placed it in his waistband once cops arrive. Then, when told to put his hands up, he goes for the gun in his waistband.

At what point is a cop justified to shoot in this case?

As far as the "going for your license" deal, I assume you mean the case in SC a month or so ago. That was a case of the cop being dumb, but the shooting itself is somewhat understandable (even though the cop sort of set the poor guy up for failure with his terrible command-giving).


Cops often DON'T shoot when they SHOULD shoot. I can provide a lot of dashcam footage from youtube that proves this. It's not easy for any sane person, even cops, to take a life. A lot freeze up and get killed for it.

Need to make a decision this off season. Do you want Cam/Olsen or Rivera/Shula.

 

Players are gone after 2015 if the coaches are not replaced. I do not see them sticking with this coaching staff/offensive philosophy.




I keep hearing Olsen had some sort of altercation with somebody during the game. Any truth to this? Did he have some strong words or something with somebody?

Not even seeing Cam's presser on the website. Ron's is there though. Think Cam making that remark might get him in some poo. Unless they're just waiting to put it up later.


Cam has to get it out there about this staff. They're certainly not gonna point the finger at themselves. They're not going to say they failed. Ron will keep saying the players are failing to execute and missing opportunities.

If I'm Cam, I'm either ignoring every playcall and calling my own game or I'm gonna just put up with it and leave after the contract is up

I like it. Good story. Great graphics (PS4). Plays pretty damn smooth. I like the movement. A lot of people hate the gliding and whatnot in multiplayer, I don't mind it.

It plays like a CoD game, but at the same time, it's nothing like the CoD games before Black Ops. They've fully gone to the futuristic style of combat. Gone are the days of just having a soldier as we know them in the real world. Now you're a sci-fi soldier. A fun game, but I do miss the basic run-n-shoot idea that was CoD. Before the mech suits, hover crafts, and the other bells and whistles.


IMO, the best way to enjoy this game is to not try to compare it to anything. Just play the damn game. If you like it, keep it. If not, trade it in towards something else. A lot of people end up hating it because they say they've ripped off Halo/Destiny, or that they've simply tried incorporating concepts from those games into this one. Screw all that over-analyzing crap. Just play the game and determine whether or not you enjoy it. It's what I'm doing, and I'm having a good time with it.

The Eagles brought extra pressure 33 times Monday night.

 

There were only 3 possible audibles called the entire game.

 

One was a hand check to change pass routes very early on.

 

One was a run audible at the 6:29 mark. The other was another run audible at the 11:02 mark in the 3rd.

 

That's it.

 

I can't say whose fault this is. Maybe Shula is such a fuggin' retard he doesn't know how to incorporate audibles into his game plan.

 

Maybe they decided to simplify things because of the flux in the offensive line. That ratio of blitzes to audibles is absurd, though.

 

The offensive line is not very good, but circumstances are making them look worse than they really are.



I believe it comes down to philosophy. Every coaching staff has two things: a philosophy and a system. The system is what the team operates out of. Formations, types of plays, etc. The philosophy is HOW the team operates. Rivera made it clear early on what his philosophy is, what he's about: execution. Executing individual jobs and executing plays as a whole. While it's not a bad philosophy, he is taking it too far. He thinks poor results = poor execution. EVERY time. He will NEVER call Shula out because, in his mind, we're just not executing. It's nothing about the system or the OC. It's that we're simply not running the plays CORRECTLY.

And he will believe that until he and/or Shula are fired.
