again we play to the level of our opponents. This staff cannot motivate at all. Philly giving up all kinds of sacks on Vick, we can't hardly get 2 on them, Chiefs playing a back up cast off QB and we make them look like a division leading offense - this staff just sucks a$$.
I feel bad for the family of the young lady - whatever "his" problems were, I doubt seriously that she deserved to die.
It sucks for the Chiefs organization, it sucks for the families - but my sympathy for him personally took a big nose dive once revealed that he murdered the mother of his 3 month old child.
As for the game, I'll withhold any judgement on whether its played or not - but then the question arises - when to play it in the future?
Yes, football is a game - but it is a buissiness as well. Tickets have been sold, hotels rented, fans have traveled, a team is traveling. Now the NFL can refund ticket expenses, but they can't speak for hotels and airlines. Whether any of us agree or not, the NFL has a responsibility to those that have paid to see the game.
Flame away, but I personally have been through this - my direct supervisor committed suicide - there were impacts that day, but we continued working as required. Small organizations might shutdown for a while, but some organizations can't.
125 people were killed by Hurricane Sandy - 2 states under National Emergency with millions out of power, housing, food and flooded. Half the NY Giants players with no where to live - but Giants and Steelers still played
This incident is a personal tragedy - not a national disaster.
when is someone in that presser gonna finally ask a relevant question? I mean c'mon, ask what everyone wants to know - "do you honestly believe that the read option is the best offense for this team?" "why are we not running a Pro style offense and developing our young QB to run it?"
Those are the questions that should be getting asked - not Andy Reid crap!
I'll be honest, I never liked the Superman thing, the airplane motion he does during pre-game, or the little "1st down thing" he does.
He broke records last year, he ran 700 yds last year, he won 6 games last year. He has only led this team to 8 wins so far - other than be the #1 overall pick, he hasn't done enough for all the showboating that he does. I think thats why the media, analyst, and opposing players don't like him. His actions are critiqued because he displays a "me" attitude - "look at me, I'm Superman - but let me go mope on the sidelines too".
Other than Rogers, which QB's have so much "look at me" attitude? No wonder no one likes him.
The biggest problem with FEMA and disaster response is:
Some victims expect FEMA to arrive on site within 2 hours of the storms passing - then they expect water, food, fuel and a check 2 hrs after that. They expect the government to "fix" everything within 1 day. The media does not help either - they are quick to jump on any bandwagon where a victims screams injustice because they are not getting the governments undevided attention.
Massive disasters - things just do not happen that quickly. You have to be able to take care of yourself for a few days and give time for the relief efforts to get into action.
What amazes me the most is that there are literally days of forecast and path projections and yet the average person would rather wait for the government to take care of them instead of preparing to take care of themselves.
Like the people you see accepting the free generator from FEMA - then selling it to the pawn shop 2 months later - then complaining next year when it takes FEMA a couple of days to start handing out generators again?
Presidents can't fix everything - but they tend to get blamed for everything. Some people need to look in a mirror to see where it starts.
