    Hi guys. Now that it's no-news season time in football, I think it's appropiate to give you an update on Marta. She was discharged one week ago and is back home. Her status is as follows: she has complete intelectual abilities and understands everything; she can't keep her eyes focused on people, has a lost stare, but keeps some sense of humor. She can walk but needs help to keep balance as she has none on her own, so she mostly goes on wheelchair. She can eat but hasn't fully recovered her swallowing, so it's mostly purées for her I'd say, but can eat solid. She can barely talk and it's like she runs out of air when trying. The thing is that swallowing and relearning to breathe and speak are the processes that take the longest in these cases, so it's not surprise there. Having her back home has given back some "normality" to familys life (daughters were most of the times at granparents') but it's a whole new battle from now on. An ambulance takes her to rehab every day so she's still progressing but this will be a long process and nobody knows when will she stop progressing. Her family is happy but the one that struggles the most (for obvious reasons) is her husband. He takes care of her and is very caring (more than ever, actually) but suffers a lot. Anyway, he has still faith, hasn't given up and rests in his family, so there's something to be positive about. Thank you everyone again for your prayers, we still pray for them to God, so she fully recovers and gives them strength in this battle, so we are grateful to anyone who joins us anytime

    When did he play in an NFL secondary? Do you really think Gregg Williams repeatedly lining Peppers up in another area code reflected disappointment in Peppers' ability or perhaps more so in the foot speed of Corners Jamar Taylor and Jason McCourty (whom we got after TN replaced him w/1st round speed just 1 year before we did the same thing)??? Didn't we also just trade Taylor for a 6th round pick in 2020? Aside from drafting a corner that runs in the 4.3s at #4 overall, we've also traded for/signed FA Corners up the wazoo this off season. Many started or got a lot of reps on NFL teams that actually WON football games last year. One of those corners (Randall) is projected to return to his college comfort zone of FS. Most of Peppers' experience at Missedagain was up in the box playing like an extra LBer where he performed at an All Conference/All American level. Returning him to this comfort zone where he plays faster and more instinctual doesn't have to be a negative. I thought he had his best game against Pittsburgh when he was used more like he was used in college from where he lined up to what Gregg Williams asked of him. It's okay to take a talented college football player and play him at a different NFL position/role where his skill set offers him the best outcomes. Cleveland did that with Ozzie Newsome when they drafted an All American WR from Alabama and transformed him into an NFL TE with a Hall of Fame career. More recently, we did it with Schobert going from OLB to MLB. It sounds like our DC will be returning Randall and Peppers back to roles that got them regarded well enough to be drafted in round 1. In order to do that, Williams has to be far more comfortable with the Corners he's putting on the perimeter. Let's see what happens...

    This last Monday, New Year, has been a special day... In the worst kind of way. Just before lunch, we received a message asking to pray for one of my friends from our parish community, who was heading to the hospital in an ambulance. Nothing else. Hours latter we got to know that she had suffered a stroke and was on a surgery. By the end of the day, we were told that she had been on the surgery for 6 hours and his state was critical, currently in coma. She has been battling, though, because on Wednesday she started to move her legs at the doctors' questioning. Her family asked the doctors if they could stop sedating her during that afternoon's visit, so they could talk to her and ask her questions. She moved even her arms or mouth a bit. There was hope. Thursday she started to breathe on her own (though she stays intubed) and this Friday she was able to directly answer questing halfway moving her eyelids up, confirming that those weren't reflexed but straight conscious answers, though she didn't move extremities as other days. There's hope, but the battle is far from being won. We are worried now because they have seen in the last scanner a lot of liquid, and she has a bit of fever (infections are very risky at her state). She keeps fighting. Her name is Marta, she's 32, married and mother of two gorgeus girls of 4 and 1. It's overwhelming because her mother died in 2001, and her father in 2013, both of cancer. She has 3 sisters and 1 brother. The death of their parents made them bond together as a very united family. I didn't plan or want to post this here, I'm a quite shy guy myself. But if posting this here adds a person remembering her and her family in their prayers, it will be worth it. All the parish has her on their prayers, there are some praying groups that have been created to pray for her, and even other parishes or monasteries have been noticed about this. But there's never enough. Thank you very much for your time.

    That's exactly my point as well. You KNOW if we traded Coleman we wouldn't get jack squat for him, so what would be the point? Corey still has vast potential, despite never coming close to realizing it. The pieces are definitely in place for him to have a breakout season, and I hope he takes advantage of them all. As I've said before, we have to figure out ways to get Corey the ball in space. Too many times he had to dive for the ball across the middle, or slow down, or jump...whatever. I want to see him catch some passes in stride and get some YAC. It's what he did so well in college, and I firmly believe that translates to the pros. Don't forget, Corey had multiple terrific catches, especially in the middle, where he had to dive low to make the grab. We obviously remember the 2 awful, inexplicable drops (the TD against the Bengals, and obviously the last game versus Steelers), but the guy was generally the only WR on the team who made tough catches. Suffice to say, Kizer didn't do the guy too many favors. Todd Haley specializes in short passes that maximize yards, and Corey just might have a resurrection because of our new OC.

    The playmaker position rooms heading into 2017 Versus heading into 2018 QB 2017: Kiser, Hogan, Kessler 2018: Taylor, Mayfield, Stanton From worst QB room in the league to middle of the pack starter and potential franchise QB #1 overall pick RB 2017: Crowell, Johnson, Dayes 2018: Hyde, Chubb, Johnson Middling Isiah Crowell replaced with 1-2 Punch of powerful Carlos Hyde and college stud Nick Chubb. Duke Johnson relieved of "Metcalf up the middle" duties and can now be exclusively the pass catcher out of the backfield our QBs need WR 2017: Coleman, Britt, Louis, Higgins 2018: Gordon, Landry, Coleman, Calloway Most improved position room in NFL? Light years. Former All-Pro Gordon in great shape and ready for a 16 game schedule finally, Pro Bowler Landry one of top possession receivers in NFL, Coleman can prosper as 3rd wr if he stays healthy, Calloway has Percy Harvin type skills if flies straight. Let's not forget first rounder NoJokeU at TE looking to make a second year leap. Dorsey saw where we were weak and addressed every bit of it in Year One. Can't wait to enjoy Sundays again ... Zombo

    Just for fun, let's assume Gordon will play all year and not get suspended. Corey won't break his hand, and Antonio Callaway will keep it together. Knock on wood, Landry is very consistent. When you look at those four WR's, it's difficult to find a better group in the NFL. Pittsburgh before they traded Martavis Bryant, for sure...but thank God they traded him. Even so, they have the best WR and Shuster could be REALLY good as well. But when you look at the group of idiots we were running with for most of last year, this year's group looks like "All Madden". The problem is, so many of our WR's have really LARGE question marks, but if we get a little luck (maybe a LOT), we could have a vastly different unit on the field making plays. I'm hoping beyond hope that we don't trade Corey Coleman. I just have this feeling about him. I completely realize he's been a bust so far, but I just FEEL it. I don't think Corey can be "the guy", but when he's playing alongside the potential best receiver on earth in Gordon, and Landry who catches 100 passes every year, Corey will probably get the defense's #3 CB and I believe he can win that match up virtually every time. Additionally, I think we can get him the ball IN SPACE. Something we haven't done in 2 years because we haven't had the weapons to scare defenses. I hope I get the chance to see if I'm right. If Gordon is healthy and not suspended for 16 all 16 games, he's going to fart 1000 yards. Njoku could easily double his production, and don't forget about Seth Devalve. Every time I look at our skill positions I start to scratch my head because we literally went from nothing to...well...SOMETHING.

    Steve – Last week, the latest CNN national poll showed a double-digit Democratic lead collapsing all the way down to just three points. Now the news is even worse: A new Reuters poll has Democrats ahead by only one point. And if that's not bad enough, right-wing billionaire Sheldon Adelson just cut a $30 million check to national Republicans – money to help fund a new wave of attack ads that could soon push Republicans into the lead! The advantage Democrats have enjoyed since Donald Trump first set foot in the White House is almost GONE. The Republicans are recovering. If things stay like this, we could be looking at 2016 all over again. We can't let that happen – and we won't, if you pitch in $10 right now to help Democratic candidates fight back. We need 10,000 supporters to give in the next 24 hours, with every dollar going directly to key battleground districts >> If you saved your information with ActBlue Express, clicking a link below will cause your donation to process instantly: Donate $10 now >> Donate $25 now >> Donate $50 now >> Donate $100 now >> Donate other amount >> Steve, this is the moment we've feared for more than a year and a half. Trump's "alt-right" base is finally awakening to the fact that the GOP is HIS party now, and they're rallying to his side. Meanwhile, our base has become complacent, thanks to the lead we used to have in the polls and the 41 legislative seats we've already flipped this past year. We need to turn this around NOW and show the nation that grassroots energy is still on the side of Democrats – because we could be facing historic losses across the country if we fall short. Only a massive grassroots surge can help Democrats recover and retake the lead. We need EVERYONE pitching in this second to right the ship. Will you give $10 today, before it's too late? I'll get right on that. WSS

    We vacationed in NC over the weekend, came back Monday. Graduation party for our close friend's son. Their friends, who go to their church, from their same neighborhood, also there. The husband is a paster/counselor who works with ptsd, family problems... I bring it up because his 19 year old daughter had stopped at a stop light two weeks previous, at night, and a big pickup truck rammed into the rear of her car at high speed. The driver hadn't gotten stickers on his license for 4 years... he and his wife had to be high. The truck rammed them, flipped up into the air, and rolled at least twice. The driver at first denied he hit her, then said it was her fault because she slowed down to stop at the redlight and was in his way. Her Dad was showing me the pictures of the accident, it was amazing she wasn't killed. So, the rear of the car ended up crushed up into the rear seat of the car - lucky no one was in the back seat. Her head injury was significant - bad concussion, etc, whiplash. He drove 160 miles from a seminar...back to the hospital, that night...only knowing his daughter was in a very bad accident and had a serious head injury. The rear windshield actually was what hit her in the back of her head. This pretty 19 yr old young lady came out of it, and was at the party, carefully having fun. She was joking here and there about the "staples in her head" and was really funny. She has a lot of healing to do, yet. Could have been a stroke like Nero's friend - so tragic up front - . There is so much we tend to take for granted every day - until something happens that changes that. Thanks for posting about it Nero. More prayers your friend gets back 100%.

    Tex we all need to focus on whatever issues we are discussing, in this case especially you. I understand you want to keep with the talking points, I get it. Just keep repeating lie lie lie whether it has anything to do with the situation or not. Fact is he was quite clear about the Iran deal all along and so were many Americans some of which you say you support. This was not a US treaty as Cal correctly points out this is a POS deal but Obama and Kerry and needed to be rescinded. And if you are ridiculously choosing to defend the North Koreans because the United States doesn't stay in bad deals for eternity... I think you are smart enough to understand. North Korea needs us much more than we need them. The carrot is joining the modern world and becoming successful like South Korea. The stick is being annihilated. By South Korea, Japan, China and the United States. And you are afraid of offending the North Korean sense of decency and trustworthiness? Please. Nobody on the world stage gives a damn about whether or not it was raining during the inauguration whether there were more people there than another inauguration or anything about the prostitute who made the accusations and her scumbag lawyer. I don't think you really do either, it's just what you feel you need to say to be a part of the team. As a matter of fact you can't even force yourself to say yes I thought the Iran deal was an excellent deal. Because you don't. You just want to bark about Trump Trump is certainly something a loud mouth and an arsehole and frankly a lot of the time I wish he would STFU. But none of that has anything to do with any substitutive policy. Nothing. And I would bet dollars to turds you wouldn't care at all about them if it were John McCain as president. Or the candidate you voted for last time. (And yes Woody oftentimes Republicans exhibit the same behavior since I have to stipulate that every post) WSS

    We're always substantially improved looking in May. This year, however, is markedly different from the previous years. We have Todd Haley instead of Hue running the offense and play calling. We've brought in 3 offensive weapons in Tyrod, Landry & Chubb. (I'm not counting Mayfield...but even if he DID play it'd still be 3 weapons as Tyrod would sit. and Carlos Hyde is the new Crowell) On D we are now to believe that Peppers will play his normal position due to the Kizer trade and the draft. We get to play eleven on eleven. ...and of course, last but not least, we have the joker of the deck....Josh Gordon. He could be anywhere from the pro bowl to a jail cell. On paper, we're quite improved...although we're gonna need a little luck with the guys we brought in for the offensive tackle positions.

    Stuart Your source for news Colbert called it a "treaty". The Iranian deal was not a treaty, nor an executive agreement, nor was it even signed...probably a good idea when dealing with a corrupt, lying, terrorism sponsoring regime. Get your facts straight.

    Why? Because it was a POS deal just a presidential piece of crap from Obama and Kerry. A piece of crap that the Iranians were completely disregarding in the second place. A piece of crap that notJohn McCain,Joe Lieberman not even Chuck Schumer believed in. Until now of course when opposing the president is the most important thing to do regardless of what's right or wrong. And please don't tell me you're expecting me to be impressed with a rebuttal based on Stephen fukking Colbert. WSS

    FROM CNN, 2016..... "Brothels not legal in big cities Nevada law allows counties with a population below 700,000 to offer brothel prostitution. That means no legal prostitution in Clark County, where Las Vegas is. County law prohibits brothels in Washoe County, home to Reno, and several other counties." (SEE THE LINK IT EXPLAINS NRS 244.345 in detail.) The current law says under 700,000 in population, 60 miles is never mentioned. Nevada is a tiny little state with nothing except Vegas and Henderson in Clark County and Reno in Washoe county...... nevermind this is going nowhere. Facts just tend to confuse some people.

    J.Landry is only paid behind Ant.Brown,M.Evans,D.Hopkins,S.Watkins. Also think Jarvis will be playing more than just slot receiver in Haley's system. https://www.espn.com/blog/cleveland-browns/post/_/id/25279/browns-could-be-dangerous-at-wr-with-one-big-if So when you insert the drafted WR's, the target guys should be the winners that play ST's.Matt Dayes may hit PS? so that opens one ST slot. Dom. Alexander is gone, that's two. Add also we have more than flipped half the roster. The 2 target guys to the rookies should be Higgins & Louis that both play ST. Evan Berry looks more S/FS/ST depth imo. WR1)Gordon..WR2)Landry..WR3)Calloway.. Corey Coleman will have to win WR position,he has no ST value..Janis will need to show his value in WR game, but is a ST baller ahead of Louis & Higgins imo. Honestly think we keep more CB's & S's active than WR's. Leaving only 5-6 WR's active/game..2-3 WR's may fall to PS..can't wait to camp snap #1..

    One of our candidates for Governor advocated the legalization and taxation of Marijuana to increase revenues. Seven states have legalized it for recreational us: Washington, Oregon, Calif. Nevada, Colorado, Maine, Massachussetts. 21 other states have some "Medical Marijuana" laws in place, including Ohio. It appears also that Vermont, Michigan and New Jersey may move this year on legalization. (It could also appear on the ballot in Ohio) I suspect that in 5 years, over half of the states will have legal sports betting, and half will have legal recreational marijuana use. Then...the next big area will be: will any states join Nevada in legalizing prostitution?
