  1. If we came out in NO and half assed it I wouldn't consider it a success. Only one team is going to win it all. Once you get into the playoffs, the season starts over. The goal is always to win it all, and nothing short of a full effort, win or lose is a success.
  2. Depends on the one and done. If this team comes out and gives everything it has from start to finish and loses, I'm ok with that. If they come out and half ass it like so many times we do, then no I'm not happy.

    Caping for nazis - a thread about NC Proud Boys

    Yes I know there are klansmen in major branches of politics. Gangs have the ability to wield influence as well. They are organizations whose members participate in hate, violence, murder, etc. The OP was about a tattoo artist, so the comparison to a street gang member is reasonable. If we want to discuss major branches of political influence, a cartel might be a better comparison.

    Caping for nazis - a thread about NC Proud Boys

    Interesting question. It would depend on if they were actively promoting their ideology at work, which would be grounds for immediate termination for me. Outside of work, there's only so much I can control, but if I was told about it, could verify it, and in any way it could come back to my business and hurt my bottom line, buh bye. The guy from Comcast should have been canned. I also think approach makes a big difference in talking to a business owner. If you stand outside picketing or come into a place of business aggressively, I don't think you're going to get the same response as if you walked in and discussed the situation rationally. If someone comes in screaming and acting like an ass, I'm probably not going to listen to a word they say, and may end up having to call the cops and have them arrested. I've had to do that before. Just wondering. Would you say that being a member of a street gang should cause someone to lose their job?

    There's dumb, then there's Le'veon Bell....

    Agree with what you're saying. My thoughts are he is a great runner, but he is also lethal as a receiver. That combination isn't as common in the league. That's what makes him really special, like watching Kamara and McCaffrey. I think he's going to get paid, probably in the 14-15 range with $50 million guaranteed. And when he suits up in Oakland, and Gruden tanks his career, he'll only have himself to blame that he missed his shot in Pittsburg with a contender.
  6. Ron has strengths as a coach. He also has weaknesses. I think we can all say that if you aren't trying to get better you aren't trying and sometimes that appears to be the case when the same mistakes are made over and over again. I don't think people really want him fired as much as they want him to try and correct his deficiencies. With his ability to bring guys together as a unit, if he could get his game management under control, this team could be something really special. It's all up to him.

    Trump has taken lying to an epic level. He could probably have been a really good improv comedian with his ability to make bullshit up on the fly.

    Fire Rivera fanboys must be on vacation

    No. And like I said in my post just above yours, Hurney 1.0 poo'd the bed after round one in epic fashion. Sure there were a couple of that he hit on past the second round, but for the most part, damn...

    I think he meant first rounders.

    DG also seems to have found us some quality OL as well, they just never able to get on the field until injuries forced it. The Matt Kalil thing reeks of JR and I still think he had a hand in that ridiculousness. And while Hurney 1.0 did do well in the draft in the 1st round, for the most part, he crapped the bed everywhere. He hit on a few picks outside the first round, but man, if you go back and look at his drafts and the moves he made in the draft... just damn.

    maybe they don't have faith that Jeffrey can get through the rest of the season without getting hurt

    My frustration with Ron is that the answer may very well be on the roster, but it takes an injury to find out. Guys that should be getting playing time don't because Ron can't put the best guy on the field on a consistent basis. Our goal should be to win a Super Bowl every year, and I'm not sure Ron is capable of putting the right players and coaches in place on a weekly basis. I would have less issues keeping Ron if we could get someone to take that part of decision making away from him. Team evaluation and player management is one of the most important parts of being an NFL coach and in that respect I believe he is far below average, and our long term success has suffered because of it. Am I saying he should be fired tomorrow? No. But even at 5-2, you can't look at his game day roster management and tell me he's been amazing.

    I admit it, I hate crackers.

    So you're saying it's ok for me to cover myself in 5 gallons of Miracle Whip?
