In Topic: League wide veteran purge

Yesterday, 02:28 PM

It does seem like a lot of big names are either on the block, bubble or already been cut.

 

Seeing two very young teams win Super Bowls, and the NFL is a copycat league, I expect to see more age/money cut while youth is scooped up.  For teams with a strong core, this is good for them moving forward.  For teams that blew it in FA the past couple of years and fought too hard to keep guys over 27, it's going to be a rough time moving forward.

 

Got to draft smart!  Work out those UDFAs, and get your FAs cheap.  It's an interesting trend for now.


In Topic: Season 5: The Walking Dead

Now that I'm caught up with season 5, I am curious to how the writers avoid falling into the same story lines again. I have not read the comics.

I love the show and the characters. I just don't want to see the same things happen to the characters. Evil villain? Deadly isolated disease? Wandering around?

I just want it to stay interesting. So long as they keep it interesting and surprising, I'll be happy.

In Topic: What A Difference A Season Makes

Don't we all love the offseason?

 

I will say, I'm very hopeful for 2015 more so than any other season.  Cam's getting better (I'm not worried about him being resigned, it will happen).  Our young guys have more experience.  We have a few holes (OK, still the glaring LT hole), but we bring back a lot of our main contributors back.  We finished well, even with the 2nd half shalacking we got in Seattle.  Gettleman will get a LT for us and he will add more talent.  I think our coaches are better than we give them credit for considering what this team has achieved in the past two seasons.

 

I hope we can enjoy a fun and successful year!


In Topic: Internet Decorum

Thanks for the responses.  I'm just curious for dialogue on the issues because more often than not, I end up at a complete loss for words when I read the crap that people post online.  Facebook, forums, twitter, whatever.  

 

I guess I'm just naive and hopeful that people can agree to disagree at one point.  Or that we can respect someone's passion without being douche bags about our disagreements?  Then again, I guess that fails for the desire to be right.  To have one's henchmen slapping you on the back at "winning" an internet argument.

 

I guess I'm just a wuss.  I hope and expect that people will be better thanks to the improvements of technology in their lives, but I thinks it's just become too easy to socially regress into tribes of "me versus you" over internet "likes" as opposed to resources.

 

Yep, I'm just an over-thinking wuss =P
