    Thoughts on Trading Funchess?

    I would like to see what he's capable of if RR is canned and a new coach is brought in. He's still young enough that he could possibly fix playing to his size and his hands, but I think we need a better coach/coaching staff to help him along with that.

    Day after Ron presser

    Agree, but someone has to be the first. RR and Hurney should be a 2 for 1 combo.

    Day after Ron presser

    Actually I think there might be. While the season is all but lost because we have a .0000001% chance to get into the playoffs, I think it would send a clear message to the players on the team, and ones we will pursue in FA and the draft, that the days of family run organization is over for good. Business is business and needs to be treated as such. Do your job, or you will be shown the door.

    Ron just stated he will not sit Cam

    If Hurney doesn't poo can Ron after this comment he needs to get his pink slip tomorrow too. He already should have it anyway. You don't trot your franchise QB who is obviously hurting onto the field for nothing. Hurney do your friggin job and fire this clown.
  5. I have to say Hurney because I don't want him choosing the replacement for RR. Hurney has never been able to build a long term success with this franchise. I want a guy with energy and vision for the new NFL to replace Hurney at GM because whoever that is will undoubtably replace antiquated RR at HC. It's that simple for me.
  6. when has Ron ever cared about a competant staff?

    To those claiming the NFL is rigged...

    I've believed the NFL is rigged in certain games, especially after SB50. When I was watching the game and Talib threw Philly out by his facemask and several other terrible calls, even the Broncos fans I was with said the NFL rigged the game. Talib came out after the game and said he intentionally tried to injure PB. 25k fine, no suspension. He knew he didn't have to worry about anything. Goodell got his outcome, Cam was put back in his place, Manning goes out a champion. I absolutely believe refs are told to influence the flow of the game to have the right team win in crucial situations. it doesn't always work, but the signs of influence are there. The NFL ranks right up there with pro wrestling now.

    Hurney has changed. Right?

    Very true, he drafted Cam and Luke, but look at the teams he put together to get the draft position to take them both. Hurney 2.0 is better than 1.0 but still needs to go. Gettleman did some things well and some things terrible, it was his time also. As said before, a Hurney/Gman GM would probably be really good.

    Any members do Woodworking?

    Top secret tip. If you are using a screwdriver or long drill bit next to anything that scratches, put electrical grade shrink tube around the shaft. Drill bit extensions with that crappy rubber cover don't work too well. For a few pennies, you can save yourself a lot of headache. I used to install a lot of interior door knobs and never got a scratch. All of my 4 inch or longer driver bits have it done as soon as I got them. Also, any interior bit with a hex body that I plan on using inside I install in my drill and use a piece of heavy grit sandpaper to round off the body smooth. The edges can't tear stuff up if they aren't there. Second tip, don't skimp on the screws. Drywall screws have a low sheer point and are pretty unrealiable if it's for any type of weight. It's cheaper in the long run to pay for the right type of screw and save yourself the headache when the top of the screw inevitably snaps off. 3rd tip. If you are doing any type of furniture and want to hide the screws, use one of your scrap pieces of wood and a hole bit and make your own plugs. you have to recess the screws when putting it together, but it gives you a really clean finish if that's the look you're going for. 4th tip. January and February are roll out times at Lowe's and Home Depot, at least out here in the PNW. Don't forget to go check the bargain shelves weekly. You can snag some pretty good priced bits, saw blades, and wood working tools for next to nothing. The wife is always shocked when I come home with $500 bucks worth of stuff she says I don't need and I tell her I only spent $20. 5th tip. Don't use a sander or grinder to sharpen chisels, invest in a high quality sharpening stone. If you over heat the edge which is really easy to do, you lose the temper and you might as well buy a new chisel.

    Let's talk Saints...

    I got lucky in Fantasy Football playoffs this week and am not playing the guy that has Kamara and Thomas in his lineup.

    Hate Week 2018 Pt. 1

    Vernon Bustler will earn his 1st round pick status with 4.5 sacks, 1 interception return for a touchdown, and will sing I will survive karaoke from the sidelines. Panthers drop 84 before halftime in a shutout.

    Dammit Steph...

    Is it possible it was staged? Yes. Why? To do what government does best, distract Americans with an enemy, in this case Russians, and funnel billions of dollars into power hungry pockets to help further government corruption and keep people in power. Do I think it was staged? No. It would be too great a conspiracy and cause to much damage if discovered be fake. Do I think it was used as a cover for some backdoor dealings? Absolutely.

    Eric Reid fined for hit vs TB

    Some of the calls and fines this years are ridiculous. Look at the roughing the passer calls that are getting flagged. It's a damn joke. The league doesn't give 2 shits about player safety.

    Couple more observations

    I was getting ready to say the same thing. That was an absurd hold on a play that could have easily been a zero yard run. The only thing missing was throwing up one more arm and putting Shaq down for a million dollar dream.

    Is it time to play the rookie linebackers?

    Why not let them play? The answer could already be on the roster as we've seen repeatedly once an injury forces Ron's hand.
