    Dammit Steph...

    I think Paul, who is an example of a well-documented person from that time, developed the religion for non-Jews as an offshoot of Judaism. Non-Jews were ok with Judaism, but did not like the dietary restrictions and especially did not want anyone with a knife near their penis. Paul came up with "Christianity". James' brother Jesus may have been an actual person that Paul used as an archetype to invent his messiah. Much later, the gospel writers tried to fill in the history, but since Paul's Jesus was not a real person, there were huge inconsistencies. Things have worked out rather well for the church over the last 2000 years thanks to Paul's creativity.

    Not sure about this one. He gets lots of mentions in the Bible, but I would not call that a "historical" document. I believe he got 2 contemporaneous mentions in Josephus. The first naming him James' brother and the other a fraudulent addition made years later by an enthusiastic copyist. The biblical timelines are very inconsistent with Jewish sources of that time. It's possible to believe Jesus existed, but perhaps at a different time period and with different beliefs than what is portrayed in the Bible.

  4. This is not going to happen, but what about... Aaron Rogers has some nasty cap hits coming up. GB has the 10th and 30th pick (as of now). Trade Cam to the Packers for Rogers, and the two firsts. We'd have 10, 16, 30, and 35-year old Rogers, who may be able to play 3-4 more years. I doubt GB would take that, but is that an offer we could refuse?

  6. Your equating reaction time to intelligence. Why?
  7. lol - I can't believe it took you this long to pipe in. I believe QBs are among the brightest athletes on the planet. But different people think at different speeds. Just because it takes someone 1 second to react to a situation as opposed to .8 seconds doesn't make them dumb. The fact you went there speaks volumes.
  8. Hate to say it but this is true. I think Cam makes up his mind in the huddle where he is going with the ball. I suspect the receivers all know this. Not excusing the jogging, but after a while you get tired of putting on your best move knowing there is a 0% chance your QB will be glancing your way. I realize this is a knock on Cam so everyone will immediately assume I must be a racist (I'm not). Cam is incredible, is freakishly big, strong, athletic, and durable, and he brings other dimensions to the QB position that literally no one else can. But making split second reads after the play has started is the most difficult thing a QB has to do and I don't think this is Cam's strong suit.

  12. Of all the dumb comments I've read on this forum, this might be the dumbest. Anything can happen in the nfl. Brees is 40 years old. He could get hurt getting out of bed tomorrow and suddenly the saints are toast. You play to win every game. Tanking for draft picks is loser talk.

    The Bucs come back wasnt Riveras fault

    Agree. Line was Panthers by 6.5. Panthers win by 14 and huddlers still whine. This is week 9 in the NFL. No team has quit yet. Professionals on both teams. Enjoy the run.
