There is no reason, with the cannon of an arm that Cam has, that he could not launch it 5 yds over a receivers head near the sideline out of bounds.
2nd and 10 is always better than 2nd and 19.
He can expect D's to try to corral him and leave him no outlet. He needs to get a feel of when it is time and throw the ball away. His normal MO has been to run when that time came, but D's are getting better at cutting him off.
It is just something to clean up that should come with age.
So if a message board is made up of people who fancy themselves as the defenders of all that is good, the guardians of every person who has ever been stepped on by "the man", and the righters of all wrong, why are those people generally the ones who go off on anyone not singing their same tune?
Generally, the namecalling ensues within 5 posts after someone dares to have a different opinion. If it goes a few pages more, the "defenders' become incensed and are ready to "destroy" anyone in their path. All because of differing opinions. Amazing.
I am sort of glad that I am old and don't have to buy into the double life excuse for internet speech. However, I suspect that it might not be as double lifed as some suspect. It is most likely the way people really feel and the condition of their heart/psyche.
And if you can rip people to shreds on a board and exhibit some of the most horrific behavior there, what is wrong with calling it out? What is wrong with asking why? It does matter to some people.
Since SZ told another poster that he wished he would die of cancer and Cantrell immediately pied the sentiment, I have pretty much lost all respect for the both of them. Before, I took them as liberal guys with a big chip on their shoulder who I seldom agreed with on policy. But at the point you wish painful death on someone you don't even know, I no longer think of them as just a person on the other side of issues.
The Huddle in general is a melting pot and that is cool, you cannot have a TBox without different opinions, but my favorite guys from across the aisle are people like Nanuq and Mav. Both guys can argue with you, tell you their views, disagree vehemently, without ever wishing me or my family death. I know the internet has no rules nor decorum, but whose fault is that?
I guarantee that the league has noticed that last years D was not a fluke. Taking apart the high flying Lions and reducing Calvin Johnson to "minitron" yesterday even without our main sackmaster, was his stamp as head coaching material. Without a complete breakdown, he will get a head coaching gig at seasons end.
I am certain that Gman will be grooming someone as we go along.
I don't really have time now, but at some point, I'd like to ask some questions about music, mens views of women, womens roles in stereotypes and such.
At the Titans game, there was an uproar about some of the pregame music. Rap music has for a long time been synonymous with the degradation of women, so it is odd that the NFL would be playing the music during warmups.
Now, the reason I don't have time to go into it is that I think hard rock, rap, whatever plays into the warrior mentality of men. Anyway, it can be for a different thread, but later, work calls
To be honest, the case for child abuse might be there, but then again, most of America(30 yrs ago) grew up knowing about getting their legs "switched" with a small, hickory switch.
The "tree branch" media reports and "beatings" are not what we remember growing up. I got paddled in school every year until the 9th grade. Most of the times it was paddling, sometimes it was a ruler to the stretched out open hand. The switching most of us rec'd occasionally at home was no worse than this.
Beating with a tree branch makes me think of caning or something. Again, it might be a beating with a tree branch, but I would think AP could kill a kid doing that. Not condoning any of it, just taking exception with the media's probable "enhancement" of the story.
