NFL Veteran Combine

22 March 2015 - 11:28 PM

Anyone look into any of the news that came out of the Veteran's Combine today?

 

 

I saw that Adam Carriker benched 40 reps at 225, which would have been the most reps out of anyone at this year's Rookie Combine.

 

Also, some of the QBs there looked decent. Tyler Wilson got some attention.

ESPN First Draft Podcast

Anyone else here listen to this podcast?   http://search.espn.g...t-draft/audio/7

 

I know there are plenty of "draft experts" on here that are more knowledgeable than Kiper and Mcshay....  but I still think it is an interesting listen.

"A lot of scientific issues have become politicized," Miller says. "I think this report is kind of tiptoeing around that reality, where the [U.S.] Republican party has sought political support from voters with religious views who are often hostile to science."

"Ours is the first study of the U.S. public that examines perspectives on science and religion in tandem," he said. "In doing so, our study uncovers a previously unidentified group of well-informed people who are appreciative of science and technology's social uses, but who are deeply religious and who reject certain scientific theories in favor of religious ones."

Among these post-seculars, more than 90 percent agree with contemporary scientific theories about geology, radioactivity, and planetary motion, but only 6 percent believe that the universe began with a huge explosion. Even fewer -- 3 percent of post-seculars -- agree that humans evolved from earlier animals.

In addition, 48 percent of post-seculars believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, compared to 31 percent of all U.S.adults, 46 percent of traditionals, and 3 percent of moderns. Post-seculars also report the greatest strength of religious affiliation as compared to traditionals and moderns.
