    How much will rush D improve?

    I get the impression many of their offseason moves on defense was to do just that, stop the run. LB Goodson is supposed to be a run stuffer. Maybe not so great in coverage though. LB Phillips seems to have some run defending skills as well. DTs Billings (FA) and Elliott (draft) are supposed to be good run stuffers. DE Vernon, when healthy, is a plus run defender. I realize he’s not a recent signing, but there was talk of salary cap canning him and thus far the team looks like they are going with him. Those are just a few off the top moves or non-moves l can think of.

    2020 Captains?

    It seemed like a premature move to make Baker a captain last year. Landry would have worked, Tretter or Bitonio if they wanted the gig. Njoku has displayed leadership qualities as well. On defense? That’s kinda tough as the presumptive front runners aren’t with the team anymore (Kirksey and Schobert). Ogunjobi? Richardson? Mack Wilson seems like he’s gunning for it but probably a year or 2 away from getting the nod.

    Bifurcation Fallacy sounds like a Canadian hardcore band.

    What do you prefer, shortened season, or extened ?

    This amused me. Something to look forward to!
  6. The whole beer delivery phenomenon that sprang up in Ohio like 2 days after this all started has been nice, but it all reeks of the man trying to keep us down. Evil Politician 1: However will we keep the population sedated during this pandemic? Evil Politician 2: I know, we will deliver them beer. Mua ha ha ha...

    Would you trade Baker to the Dolphins for Tua?

    Maybe the guy really likes crab cakes?

    Really? I had no idea about any of this. Tua’s family scene during the draft was pretty outside the box. I got the impression they didn’t really know what was going on or the significance of it all.

    How many of you would go to a game?

    A ha! See, I’ve been doing a twist on the pinky hook... using my ring finger. I figure it’s my least used finger. The pinky is good for picking and scratching, and it’s essential in giving the shocker. I think it was As Good as it Gets. Good movie.

    How many of you would go to a game?

    I’ve given the OP question some thought, and l would go to a game. As odd as it may sound, this is an historic event, and that’s not lost on me. A part of me is very interested in having experiences that l may (hopefully) never get the chance to experience again. The empty mall parking lots, the masked individuals learning to take wide turns around one another, this strange personal obsession l have of trying to figure out how to grab a door handle that no one else has thought of... It’s all unique to the here and now. I’d like to say l lived it on the edge and look forward to the stories l might tell about it.
  15. This feels like badly manufactured hype to me. “Shits not even close”? In May? If l were Baker l would just piss on my cat and go about my day.

    Well written hx214. Sums up the frenetic goings on right now. I don’t want to use the term “blind leading the blind”, but l’m fairly certain the experts are doing some degree of figuring it out as they go.

    We gotta have at least one camp battle to look forward to on offense. Team Forbes!!

    Suicide is something the media takes great care in reporting, and l’m pretty sure in some cases doesn’t get reported at all. So to the question where are the numbers, we will probably eventually get them but l don’t think they’re readily available now to us common folk. In a bit of research l found this... https://www.nami.org/Blogs/NAMI-Blog/June-2018/Why-Suicide-Reporting-Guidelines-Matter ...which is basically a sort of media guidelines thing on how to report suicide and why it’s important to do it that way. Basically the fear is suicide itself is seen as a contagion and the people who track these things have seen spikes in suicide rates after a high profile suicide was reported. They use Robin Williams as an example. I think all it means is we don’t get the full story until yearly numbers are tallied and eventually released.

    The Pete Smith Article Thread...

    That’s a pretty hard sell that it’s all Hue’s fault. The guy certainly did Kizer no favors but he did get his foot in the door with 2 other teams and it didn’t pan out. It’s a tough results oriented business and at the end of the day an argument could be made that Kizer just didn’t put it all together quickly enough to Morph into a viable NFL QB.

    https://www.aier.org/article/woodstock-occurred-in-the-middle-of-a-pandemic/ Interesting read and something l wasn’t aware of. H3N2 was the hot new lethal virus in the late 60s, though considered lethal only to older folks. I didn’t even know it ever existed until now.

    It’s quite the clusterfuck Tour. A real hot mess of motivations and emotions up in here. A double edged sword for sure. People. They are customers and clients too, the lifeblood of business. No one wants to harm them. I certainly don’t. The notion of governmental programs and aid chaps my ass too. It’s a terribly defiant and counterproductive stance, l know. This position of mine, It’s not really steeped in logic or reason. It’s an angry and defiant stance, cat in a corner kind of thing. Honestly. My American dream is under duress and l’m hardwired to take that personally.

    Favre in Deep Doo Doo??

    What concerts? That’s what l wanna know. If this guys’s supporting Nickelback, well fuck that guy.

    Top notch comprehension skills there Gip, haha. Yes, that is my “most frightening thing” right now. But it’s just my own most frightening thing and l’m well aware it’s not everyone’s most frightening thing. That’s how society works here. We throw our deepest concerns at one another and/or elected officials and hope for a good middle ground solution. My deepest concern is just a part of the equation, but it’s a concern shared by others and is important enough that l would like it to get the levity of consideration that it deserves.

    I think one thing that may be getting discounted here is that the loss of our livelihoods is far more frightening for some of us than the virus itself. I too am a second generation owner of a family business, and there’s a shit ton of pride in that and an equal amount of concern right now. It’s not just a job or a paycheck. Prior to now it was a fine tuned vehicle through life for myself and my family built through a hellacious amount of time and effort from my father and l over 35 years. It’s deeply personal. It’s my contribution to the world so a lot of my perceived self worth is tied into it. Life is finite, but if we play our cards right we can create things that outlive us and benefit our future generations. There are a lot of people’s life’s work at risk right now. It’s frightening and quite the burden for those of us tasked with carrying a torch through these tenuous times. And by and large we get it. Save lives, it’s the right thing to do, yadda yadda. But none of that changes what l would do to get back to the daily grind. Volunteer to get a Covid 19 injection up the ass? Sign me up.
  25. If l could only pick one l would go with number two. Stef and the coaching crew have to put together consistently winning game plans that the players can buy into. We all heard the reports of Freddie doing goofy things like not having the playbook ready in a timely fashion before the start of the season and calling plays the team hasn’t practiced in a while, so when players start asking themselves, “Why is coach doing jive shit again?”, well, that’s a bad sign. Also, we must ask the question “who does number 2 work for?” And the answer of course is Dr. Evil, renowned heart extraction surgeon who performs his craft every year or two on the same living subjects when he doesn’t see the pulmonary results he likes.
