In Topic: CBS' Prisco hates the pick & SB Nation's Kadar, lukewarm

I put it this way... When we first picked Luke, I didn't like it because we had Beason but of course we see how that turned out(By the way, Love Luke). I trust the GM and coaching staff. They haven't let me down on talent the last few drafts. Our defensive players love this pick, seems like he will be ready to contribute Day 1. I didn't know much about this kid so right now at work, I am watching his youtube highlights and reading up on him. He seems like a solid pick. Im excited.

I never knew too much about this kid but the more I read about him, I get excited. It seems as if he is the perfect fit for this defense. I loved hearing TD gush over him before the draft. I keep reading that he played safety/LB in college (TD did as well). It appears he would play as a hybrid type players in different packages

You would be suprised at what cutting out any drink other than water can do for you. I really leaned out doing so, but then i started drinking again....

 

 

 thats what I need to do. I need to take a break from the booze and trim down.

I really never chime in on topics like this but this time I have too. We need to look at things and come up with better ways. I was in a situation last year where I was driving my friends over to a bar to hang out. There were a group of friends who went ahead of us. Well I pull around the corner and there is about 15 cop cars outside of the bar. I drive slowly to try and park because I have no clue what is going on. A cop car gets behind me and all I hear is "Get the F*** out of the care, Get your hands out the F**** window or we will shoot. I am looking at my friends in my car like what the hell is going on. I see cops clearing people out of the way while my friends who were already there begging them to realize they have the wrong people. Well I remember hearing guns cocked and pulled with me walking backwards scared for my life. I had no idea what was going on. I am just praying and talking to myself saying "Don't trip or make any weird move or I am dead". Well long story short, I end up in handcuffs sitting on the car. While my other friends are brought to the ground and handcuffed. They asked could they search my car and I give them the approval.

 

I am cooperating the whole time but even mumbled under my breath that I am scared. Cop looks back and ask why. My response was well I never been in handcuffs in my life and here I am with no clue what is going on. I could tell after a while some of the cops were like man, these are not the guys and we made a mistake and even said we were at the wrong place at the wrong time. They let us go and a few ended up shaking our hands afterwards. Apparently, we fit the descriptions of the suspects which I don't know why because we are far from "fitting the profile" of a criminal. That night I could sleep at all. It scared me because if I made one false move, that could be it for me. I said this to state that not all cops are like that but some of them were very aggressive with big guns pointed at us and yelling profanity at us.

 

Once everything settle a few patrons commending me on how calm I seemed which i was nervous as can be so I can imagine how others could react differently. Now, all cops are not that aggressive. I met some of the coolest officers out there but this is an issue that needs to be address. Now about burning down my city to make a point, I am supporting that. Just wanted to put my 2 cent in there about personal experiences.

I was thinking about trying a diet. I really need to shed some pounds. I heard about this diet but unsure if I am ready for the task. Seafood seems to be a little more pricey and I love me some chicken. I am going to do some research on what is better for me to go with.
