#1857826 And so it begins....Newton vs Luck

Posted by blackcatgrowl on 13 August 2012 - 11:41 AM

Yes true, but we still needs to see improvement on Cam's decision making. We all know Cam didn't do so well in scoring position at times last year.

Luck is going to be that Manning/Rodgers/Brady/Brees that can take his team downfield every series can score points on the board.

If Indy can better that D in 4-5 years, they will probably win one soon.


You can make all these conclusions based on ONE preseason game against one of the worst defensive teams in the league?

FYI: Ryan Leaf's first preseason game in 98 = 14 of 19, 143 yards and 2 TDs, 0 INT

Not to say that Luck is going to be the next Ryan Leaf, but rather the point is..

It was one preseason game FFS.


#1689079 More voter disenfrancise goodness

A good percentage of votes are counted by machine these days unless a re-count is needed. There's also a big difference between actively manipulating the vote count (which is plainly illegal) and turning someone away at the poll on a legal technicality.


Machine voting is not immune to election staff manipulation.

http://caef.us/elect...lectoral-fraud/



In the case of machine voting, the election staff has, if properly equipped, easier ability to grossly change vote counts.

So... yeah... if you're really worried about disenfranchisement because of Election staff bias... I'd say you should be much more concerned about the integrity of the election process on much more wider levels than telling a guy who can't produce ID he can't vote.

Exactly. So why are these ID laws needed then?


Because the more accurate our election process can be, the more it represents the will of the people, rather than the will of those who would see the will of the people subverted.

And in this case, THE PEOPLE, are legal Citizens of the voting precinct.

This is why I say that the amount of actual fraud is overrated. And all this debate doesn't change the fact that voter fraud isn't the primary motivation behind these laws being passed in the first place. It's not even just the ID laws either, it's the laws that say college students can't vote in the town where they attend school if they live on campus, but have to vote in their parent's hometown.


And this is the problem. Saying "Fraud is Overrated" means you are willing to accept election manipulation. ONE case of Fraud destroys the integrity of an election's results. Why?

Because the losing party has the right to say the election was a farce, and in some cases, this can be actionable.

As far as your college concerns... If they aren't going to be home or can't be during the election... they can fill out an absentee ballot. Why is that a problem?

That's blatantly aimed at reducing a growing democratic voter base. And very many of these laws have such provisions in them.


No... it isn't.

It's paranoid racism to think a whole political party is trying to keep an ethnic group from voting. However it's a fact that both political parties have had grass-roots groups commit fraud in elections on their behalf.

And that's what is completely stupid about the liberal argument here... in the long run this benefits BOTH parties. You would only be arguing against this if you are TRYING to defraud elections.

My argument here is that the percentage of actual voter fraud will be far outweighed by the percentage of voters who should be able to vote but who are turned away due to some technicality with their I.D.


And your argument is flawed because it assumes that the voters who are legally eligible to vote won't go get ID or don't have it already.

If it is a stipulation that you have to present ID to vote (like it is in over a dozen states), then make sure you have ID if you want to vote. It's that fuging simple.

My daughter turned 18 a week ago... what was the first thing she did? Literally, she woke up and went and got her State ID. Took 3 hours. You idiots act like getting ID is some fuging mammoth undertaking. It isn't... unless you are not a legal citizen of the U.S.

You can't provide any kind of compelling evidence to add new laws and government programs to combat an issue that only exists on the pages of right wing bloggers.


Voter Fraud has happened, and has proven to have happened in this country. That's all the evidence anyone needs to prompt a change. If you need more compelling evidence than that, you're a moron.

The only people affected are those who are ineligible to get ID, and they have no right to vote in this country in the first place.

Yeah I'm really backed into a corner here. You all are going to lose this fight and lose it big time


Lol.. wow... do you really think this?

Its only a matter of time before there is a national program for Voter Identification and Verification. And it will probably be a Democrat that suggests it.

Show it or STFU. G5 already tried and failed miserably. You know why these laws are being enacted, be a fuging man and admit it instead of hiding behind whatever convenient excuse you can find.


Sounds like you're talking about yourself here.

You're saying we need to prove that this law is needed... yet, your whole argument is that the entire body of Republicans are racist and want to stifle hispanic voting because of their race... the burden of proof needed here is on you. Why 30% of the hispanic population doesn't have ID is the crux of the problem. If they get ID, the problem is solved. They have quite some time to do that before the next major election.

Election reform has been talked about since the 90's Mickey Mouse districts, and "Hanging Chads" of the 2000 election. So, now, a group of legislators is putting a law in place to reform voter integrity and eligibility, and you're pissing in your pants because it might affect illegal immigrants who aren't even eligible?

Are you even an American?

You all are pathetic, making comment after comment about how more government and bureaucracy is making your lives so bad, yet happily jumping on the train when it will take away the rights of others for your benefit. And that's all this does. The fact that Texas cannot show any reasoning behind why a new law is needed is all you need to know.


http://www.thegatewa...ight-be-racist/

I love one comment in the article I linked above:

Ummmm. I live in Texas, and when I go to Blockbuster I see no shortage of Hispanics renting movies there. Odd, considering that in order to open a Blockbuster account, I had to provide a photo I.D. AND A VALID CREDIT CARD. Is Blockbuster a racist group now? How about HEB that requires a photo I.D. when you pay for your groceries with a check? Or the fact that to apply for any social services in Texas, you must have a valid I.D.?

Good luck with that goal, Mr. Perez. Perhaps you can show all those poor Hispanic voters in Texas without some form of I.D., i.e. driver’s licenses, state welfare cards, etc. that can all be tracked through state agencies. Getting an I.D. is Texas is hard only if you are an illegal.

No voter fraud in Texas? Hell, you can go on YouTube and watch a woman tell how she mined votes for a Democrat in South Texas.


What I think is the most pathetic thing of this whole thread... is how you are assuming the 30% of registered hispanic voters without ID are U.S. citizens and had the right to vote in the first place.

The right to vote in the United States is not automatic for everyone born on Planet Earth. There's a reason we have naturalization laws. Would you want a bunch of hard-line conservatives to fly over here from England and vote in our elections?

Cam Newton is making all the draft-day doubters appear guilty of overthinking what makes a QB.


:lol:

Somewhere, there's a little troll screaming and pulling his hair out while Cam continues to roll up the numbers.

#1472276 Otah to IR

Posted by blackcatgrowl on 19 October 2011 - 01:32 PM

Newton
Otah
Stewart
Beason
Wiliams
Davis
Gamble
Gross
Peppers

that is Hurney's actual first round choices.......now pick a random team and compare how they did in the the first round in recent history. Hurney's first round is what will continue to keep him employed. He knocks them out of the park. After that, he is just your typical hit or miss GM.


You forgot these two picks:
Eric Wood
Mike Iupati


Oh... yeah... those are guys we didn't get because we traded the pick to move up to get Jeff Otah in 2008 and to move up to get Everett Brown and Mike Goodson in 2009.

Lets see how they are doing:
Eric Wood - Center - Drafted by Buffalo.

Wood was selected with the 28th pick of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. Counted on to start at right guard, Wood joined a completely retooled offensive line that was expected to feature two rookie starters—him, and second round pick Andy Levitre at left guard—and no players returning at the same position. On July 28, 2009, Wood signed a five-year contract with the Bills, reportedly worth more than $12 million.

On November 22, 2009, Wood sustained a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula in the fourth quarter of an 18–15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 11, after Jaguars DT Montavious Stanley ran into Wood's leg. Wood underwent season-ending surgery in a Jacksonville hospital and did not return to Buffalo with the team. He was placed on the injured reserve list on November 24, 2009.

On March 30, 2010, Wood told the Buffalo Bills that his leg was healing well and that he gave it an 80% chance to be ready for training camp. He eventually started 14 games in the 2010 NFL season, missing only Steelers and Vikings games because of an ankle injury.


So a freak accident sidelined him on week 10 the year he was drafted, but he came back and was a starter for 14 games last year, and has started every game this year.

To everyone's surprise, the Bills are 4-2. And they are #4 in rushing offense in the league.



Mike Iupati - Guard - Drafted by the 49ers

http://en.wikipedia....essional_career

Iupati had a strong start to the 2010 season, not committing a penalty, or allowing a sack until Week 5. He made valuable contributions to the 49ers' running game, delivering downfield blocks. ESPN's Mike Sandos selected Iupati to his 2010 All-NFC West Team, while the Pro Football Writers Association named him one of their 2010 NFL All-Rookie selections.


Oh, and hey... what do you know... the 49ers are 5-1, with a QB who everyone was thinking was gonna be a bust.



So, basically we gave up two great offensive linemen, who have contributed to their team's winning records, with a bust undersized DE whom we've already released, an injury laden OT who will probably be released, and a late-round RB who has ball control issues and has a hard time making special teams.

When Hurney misses, he winds up shooting this team in the foot.


#1472183 Otah to IR

Posted by blackcatgrowl on 19 October 2011 - 12:56 PM

how many have been on IR every year of those 3.....can't compare an apple to an orange.

Unless there is reason to believe Otah won't be willing to be depth next season....no reason to cut him.


Panther's Game 3, 2012 season:

Rivera: Damn, our starting OT just went down! Matsko, get someone in there now!

Matsko: Otah, your in. Go go go....

<Otah stands up off the bench, takes literally one step, crumples over and begins slamming his fist on the ground in what appears to be a fit of pain and frustration>

Otah: AAAAUGGGGHHH!!

<Matsko runs over with a trainer>

Matsko: What's wrong Jeff?

Otah: My knee... it's blown out again.... AAAAAAAUUUUGH.

Otah's facial expression:

Matsko: Well, looks like another IR year for you.

Otah's facial expression changes:
