  1. Story time . . . Swamp draining

    Russia loves any divisive stories such as the Nunes Memo. http://www.businessinsider.com/release-the-memo-campaign-russia-linked-twitter-accounts-2018-1?amp%3Butm_medium=referral
  2. The First-pick Draft game thread

    Good luck on that. Bama's Safety Harrison might go about there. Not Allen. I'll go with early 6th as my guess.
  3. Kenny Britt - Congrats!

    I would be too. He already has his bridge QB and will have a great QB in the draft to sit behind Eli and learn. Get some decent OLs and back in business.
  4. The games deliver Ghoolie's lessons

    Yep, I saw and thought the exact same thing, especially watching when watching great receivers make catches Browns only dream about. Same for a lot of the close DB coverages and double teams that actually worked like they are supposed to work. I also watched some great coaching figure out what teams were doing and make the adjustments. Not seen that from Browns coaching staff.
  5. The First-pick Draft game thread

    They both have two legs and two arms. One will be drafted in the top 5 overall, the other maybe by the 6-7th round. I predict Bama's other safety will go several rounds before Allen.
  6. Kenny Britt - Congrats!

    LOL! Gold Star Trophy for you Dawg.
  7. Let the hand-wringing begin

    What I hear going on today finally is the centrists in both major parties are taking back government from the left and right wingnuts in their respective parties. That is a major step from the past decade plus.
  8. Let the hand-wringing begin

    As I said I do not know the details of the agreement with Shumer. Never saw it explained. I was more concerned anyway with the bipartisan agreement Graham & Durbin brought to him and thought they had agreement on with the president to sign if passed. Graham is still miffed at his shifting gears constantly when Miller gets involved.
  9. Let the hand-wringing begin

    Let's take a poll. Do you think they fund the gov till Feb. 8 and do they finally come up with a comprehensive agreement concerning all these issues? Two part question.
  10. Let the hand-wringing begin

    Quite emotional there Mr. Spock.
  11. Let the hand-wringing begin

    Steve my best understanding is that Graham and Durbin presented their comprehensive bipartisan immigration reform, DACA, border reform, etc. to the President who agreed to sign it. Then two days later he reneged. Shumer's seemed less specific but included giving the funding for the wall as a part of the border reforms. Again he said Trump agreed and again reneged. The real problem is the real racist in the WH, Steven Miller. He keeps bending Trump's ear and I think causing this continued problem with going back on his words to both parties, Rep & Dem. That is what you hear senate Republicans complaining about more vocally each day. That is why you can hear them taking over leadership because they can't count on Trump to take a stand and stay there on bipartisan agreements.
  12. Let the hand-wringing begin

    As I already stated I was not in the room to know the details of the promises to Graham's bipartisan group or to Shumer's individual meeting. Or to what led Mitch McConnell to make his statements of needing to know what Trump really wanted because he waffles back and forth. What I do know is that several people in both parties are not getting what they need from Trump. What is important now is the McConnell speech just a few minutes ago that extends funding on a bi-partisan agreement to Feb. 8. McConnell has taken control of the leadership of the Republican party and as far as I am concerned that is a good thing. He is willing to negotiate all issues with full hearings including amendments from both sides and that is new. That is the government I want to see, where gridlock ends and true listening and negotiating begins. That is a democracy and not an autocratic dictatorship. Civics 101 and I like it.
  13. Let the hand-wringing begin

    I don't think typing in that a sitting president has twice given his word and then broke it is superfluous to the shutdown. That is something that he agreed to whether either of us likes it or not and then reneged. That is the real issue for me. My or your wanting it not tied has nothing to do with that main issue. The issue is a man and his word.
  14. Let the hand-wringing begin

    I have never tried to hide my animosity for Trump because of his pathological lying (See my edit above). That doesn't make him impeachable as explained above unless he crossed the line into criminal behavior which must then be proven in a court of law. As to the Dreamers it appears that both sides agree on this and I don't think it should be tied to the shutdown. What I'm not sure of is exactly what Trump has agree to, first with the bipartisan group led by Graham and then the individual agreement with Schumer, only to go back on both after being influenced by the radical right who don't believe in compromise any more than those on the radical left. And that is the kind of thing that drives decent elected officials crazy, Trump cannot be counted on to be a man of his word because he doesn't even understand the concept. Pathological liars never do.
  15. Let the hand-wringing begin

    That's true DieHard. I recall having that happen when I worked for the VA, though I was not furloughed myself because of the essential clause. I'm not sure how that affected hourly paid people though. Most were on annual salary.
  16. Let the hand-wringing begin

    I bet that Trump is more likely to pull a Nixon by firing/replacing people above Mueller so they will fire him. Reason is that Trump is ignorant of history or he would not have already fired Comey and admitted it was for the Russia investigation. It was just as good as the Nixon WH tapes because it's right there on videotape. Get rid of the one man both sides said up front was the absolute best for the position and watch the fireworks begin. EDIT: Here's the thing cal, if Mueller finds nothing that is impeachable and just prosecutes those who were involved in criminal offense, then I have no problem with Trump keeping his position. I still believe in innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. He earned it through the election despite my thinking that he is an absolute pathological liar. It won't be the first time we have placed a man in that position with a lot of character flaws and if that's the man the country wants, so be it. Character flaw is not impeachable unless it crosses the line into criminal behavior. That has to be proven by the law of the land. I support that far more than our current President. It's part of that conservative background I have just as intolerance of liars is a part of that same upbringing.

    Starting now!
  18. Joe Thomas Says Haden Release "Demoralized" Team

    I can't let a really good oxymoron slip through.
  19. Are you all so sure Kizer can't be your QB?

    He's just playing for the farm team across the lake. He'll be brought back up to the majors when he's ready for full time NFL QB.
  20. Camp Barkley #1 Overall

    Barkley's strength is his speed. NFL speed trumps RB speed. Highlights mean nothing. I can look like a world class racquetball player @ 70 if I give you just one week of highlights playing 2 hours a day. I mean I hit a ball the other day that was going so fast to my left as I was still going right that the only shot was a behind the back flail that caught it just right for a slide down the side wall before rolling off the front. You'd draft me for sure if you owned a racquetball team. LOL! EDIT: Better yet I could make the Crow look like he had vision if I cut & paste the few plays where he accidentally went the correct way without running up the OL butts.
  21. Kenny Britt - Congrats!

    If Gronk is out do they activate him for the SB?

    LOL! That defense keeps setting up that offense. I'd give anything for it with the Browns.
  23. LOL! NE defense adjusted and shut down the Jags O. And brady isn't offense, he's the goat.
  24. Joe Thomas Says Haden Release "Demoralized" Team

    For a team that was already thin in the DB department, I thought it was just foolish. Joe was symbolic of the Browns D and JT of the O. Made no sense.
  25. Time machine Foles

    Philly has a chance against the goat if Foles continues playing this way. 31-7 jezz.
