    Yes very plus in the 10 hospital trips I had from 2015-2019 some were lengthy stays 7 requiring rehab. In 2015 I got very sick and lost 63 pounds down below my high school weight 50 years earlier. I almost didn't make it back......you learn a lot from those experiences. There are 40 year old former football players who have to walk with two canes or some who can't remember how to get home. Easy to judge sometimes.

    Yo are saying "Eating poop". Which in Spanish, omitting the subject leads to me thinking that you enjoy eating poop. I think it couldn't be more appropiate to say that, well, that backfired.

    This lure is dedicated to this coming playoff season. Got this many decades ago. I never fished with it - was afraid of getting it snagged. I don't have the box, but I do have the info paper with it. It was a Christmas extra gift for fun - from my Mom and Dad back in the day. I think this winter, I'll make a shadow box to hang it safely on the wall in our library.

    Yeah, about 95% of Giants fans wanted to run their GM out of town when he selected Jones at #6. It was a shock to everyone. Media does that all the time. For example, that Colin Cowherd hack likes to attack certain things about Baker since he continued to be wrong about Baker's leadership and talent. Hack makes sure he doesn't talk about baker and his wife delivering Christmas gifts to under-privileged kids and families in Cleveland or impacting the life of a young girl to the extent he showed up to speak at her funeral service. Those would be far too mature to sell his audience Baker has a great side to him as well. 1 day I was home from work and changed the channel to his show while he was ranting how Baker only beat 1 winning team and blabbed that about 7 of his TD passes were against the Bengals. Meanwhile, he wanted his audience to feel sorry for Darnold going to a bad team. In doing so, he sure stayed away from the reality Baker went to the team that was 0-16 in 2017 and 1-15 in 2016. Meatball on spaghetti, Cleveland didn't win either of their first 2 games in 2018 while Baker entered the 3rd game with a 14-0 deficit vrs Darnold's Jets - that Baker led us to victory over. Telling ALL of the story erases the juice he angled up against Baker.

    Meh.... the Browns have been getting tons of media attention with the end of last season and all the offseason moves. The target gets bigger the more coverage you get. Good thing is, Baker runs on hate fire. So flame on.

    NBC NEWS – In an interview with online magazine Paper, Kaepernick said his protests were a response to a deadly December 2015 confrontation between San Francisco police officers and Mario Woods, 26, in the city’s Bayview neighborhood. Woods, a suspect in a stabbing attack, died after being shot 20 times after he allegedly refused police orders to drop his knife. Woods’ family sued the city in a lawsuit that was settled for $400,000. "You might be thinking that since the family settled, the police probably screwed this one up. Since NBC News doesn’t tell us much more about it, I decided to take a look for myself and see if my assumption was true. I quickly found a report from June of this year that begins by saying the “San Francisco Police Department’s Internal Affairs unit found five officers acted within policy when they shot and killed Mario Woods in the city’s Bayview in 2015.” ........"In short, Woods had just stabbed someone who was rushed to the hospital. When police finally found him, Woods pulled a knife on the officer who confronted him and then proceeded to try and get away. Other officers showed up and surrounded Woods, ordering him to drop his knife. They used pepper spray on him and bean bag rounds to get him to comply. The report says “None of these options achieved the desired effect; Woods continued to brandish his knife [and] did not surrender.” Woods then began to move toward a populated bus stop, but an officer stepped in his way to prevent him from doing so. Woods was now moving toward the officer, who began walking backwards. It was only when Woods got within ten feet of the officer that he and the other officers fired their weapons, killing Woods. The way I read this, these brave officers didn’t do anything wrong. They tried non-lethal means to get Woods to comply and yet he still refused to drop the knife and surrender. It was only when Woods got close enough to a police officer to threaten his life that they shot him. And yet this is what Kaepernick heralds as the shooting that caused him to want to begin kneeling? Good grief. I’ve said this was a phony movement and I was right. Completely and utterly phony." https://therightscoop.com/the-police-shooting-that-led-kaepernick-to-kneel-is-gonna-make-you-facepalm/

    He had the opportunity handed to him. Not the job. The opportunity. Lots of cut players never get that type of chance. The guy looks to be a stumble bum. It's like his shoes are made of lead. Herman Munster had better moves.

    Avery is most certainly not anywhere near the bubble. Obviously I don't have inside info or anything, but Avery is a pass rusher, and a good one at that. He's also a second year guy drafted in the 5th round who came up with about the same number of sacks Barkevious Mingo did as a rookie, in probably a third of the snaps (not really sure, just a guess). Avery is strong, mean, and fits nicely into one of our subpackages for rushing the QB. Myles kicks inside, Avery goes outside, and then we'll have Ogunjobi and Vernon on the line as well. That's pretty nasty.

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001041162/article/jayzs-roc-nation-entering-partnership-with-nfl Let's just take a look at some of the great gifts to humanity he has delivered us so far....... Big Pimpin Crack Game Dope Man Fuck All Nite Is That Yo Bitch? Jigga That Nigga Money, Cash, Hoes Murdagram Pussy I'm sure they're delightful songs, but in a world where Dean Martin is too "rapey" I don't get how this was an option. The NFL must believe the average viewer has a single digit IQ. But considering a QB was able to send a political message by crouching down to dick sucking height, maybe they're on to something.

    The founders rejected the election of a president by popular vote. Liberals are not taught that America is comprised of 50 smaller "countries" (states) that are united, each with their own governments, leaders, and laws. The genius of the electoral college is that it assures each state has a say so in the election of the president. The EC guarantees that the president would be selected by a wide diversity of people from coast to coast, and not just a bunch of dimwit liberals from Calif and NY.

    I hear that a lot Bob; but he rarely sets a great example as a QB when he gets game action IMO. I've seen him in previous fill-in duties looking very Blaine Gabbertly; and that ain't good. We already have a QB Coach who seems to like Stanton being around for that presence you mentioned; but we're just a twisted ankle from starter away from being sentenced to him at QB. For all that experience, he still processes things way too slow to be successful. If we cut him, maybe we can just make him the Assistant QB Coach or something. Sometimes QBs that struggled like Trent Dilfer, Jordan Palmer, Kellen Moore, and Ryan Lindley (our current QB Coach) make good QB Coaches or even OCs. They know the challenges they couldn't overcome with any degree of consistency while they've practiced the fundamentals throughout high school and college (often attending many QB Camps along the way) to have the background and knowledge to teach the position. We're at a point where we have to have a backup QB that doesn't drop anchor on every drive. Nobody will equal Baker's pre-snap intellect that leads to all the quick-decisive throws that made our offensive line give up far less sacks than we had been used to seeing here. I think Gilbert gives us a better chance for scoring drives at #2. I guess we can always keep Stanton as the #3 and stash Blough on the practice squad.

    Yeah, I've heard we weren't the only team that would have drafted him in round 2. That said, I still find it a head scratcher that we drafted him with our 1st pick in round 2 based on the level of competition change he was heading into. Even though Bitonio went to the same school, he's really the only exception to the rule I see from that program that adapted quickly to the NFL trenches. Corbett didn't draft himself so the expectation of emerge quickly or bust still seems unfair. Then again, NFL poverty is a 6 digit salary many of us can only dream about... People in here have accurately equated his turbulent beginnings to Cam Erving. Today, Erving is the projected starter at LG for the Chiefs after filling in as a starter for a good stretch on their playoff team in 2018. While Erving still doesn't look like a 1st round pick - he's found a very good offense that considers him reliable enough for keeps. Anyone remember Tony Mandarach? He was an early disaster at LT in Green Bay for Lindy Infante. When Infante went to Indy, he gave Mandarach another chance as an OG and it paid off. He started on their playoff team and held that job down for a few years. Robert Gallery was also a trainwreck at OT for the Raiders but later settled in as a reliable starter at OG for the Superbowl team that lost to Tampa. Some guys just take longer than others. Right now, Corbett is still pretty new to playing Center so I expect some bad snaps in the shotgun early on. I think we'll all agree Corbett isn't ready to start yet. That said, I would understand it if we DON'T cut his asss just yet. I agree great talent evaluators can make mistakes. Even a Bill Walsh can draft a Gio Carmazzi (out of Hofstra) over a local boy like Tom Brady while 31 other NFL teams also saw nothing special in Tom Brady as well. BTW, that Hofstra program that once had WRs like Wayne Chrebet and Marques Colston - no longer has a football program fwiw.

    Much like a QB, President received too much credit and will get too much blame.

    i said from the beginning as gifted a runner as Hunt is....Duke felt like the better compliment to chubb imo. Hunt could prove that wrong the last 8 games we shsll see. But yeah, losing duke was tough for me....losing pep was tuff too cause i wanted those guys who put their hearts out there in our colors, to be part of the resurgence.

    Back when America was great you could buy laudanum at the drugstore and there was opium in the cough syrup. All the girls wanted to be roofied! The no good dirty sumbeeches in the government have no right to tell me I can't buy speedballs from CVS. Big, serious trouble when the brownshirts started to get their hands in our medicine cabinets. You betcha! Root beer! Cocaine! Cloward-piven! Tomatoes! Duck dynasty!
