    People actually think we are 'rebuilding'?

    I am expecting and hoping for more wins if they stay healthy, as you stated. This schedule is set up to win three or four more games. When you consider Coleman, Barton, Bowens, Elam and Veikune and that all of these guys should get major playing time or possibly start. That has to be considered rebuilding. At least the defense. Thank goodness they did.

    Nascar Forum?

    Amen! I completely agree!! I don't have to like it and can call him out for it as well. That is my right. But ya know, part of this thing with me and what made it most interesting is the double talk he got involved in when he tried to deny hating hillbillies and stated that he was just joking around. That insults my intelligence. Be a man and stand by what you said and what you meant.

    Lets Be Realistic...

    Glad to hear someone believes this. He's going to make a real impact. I can't help but think of Mangini drafting Keller in the first round and also seeing Rucker as the same type of athletic TE. Neither had ever blocked a soul in College and it was the big knock on both coming into the draft.

    Nascar Forum?

    It started with Geech sayng he "Hates all thing hillbilly". Then he made one of the most ignorant statements I've read in a while when he claimed that NASCAR was dominated by hillbillies and then added even more later when he went on to state that he couldn't satnd hillbillies. Otherwise, this discussion would never have taken place. But of course, now he says it was done all in jest. Three different post stating his feeling about hillbillies and NASCAR and now it was just in jest. Just like the early David Allen Coe stuff is just in Jest. Right? Just hilarious. I'm sure when Geech made the statement about Hillbillies dominating the sport he had no idea where any of the drivers are now from since he doesn't watch the sport. That is classic ignorance. Making uneducated statements. If someone came on this board and claimed he hated Jews or Blacks or any persons that make up American culture they'd catch hell. Even if he later claimed it was done in Jest. Maybe even banned? Not sure why hating on hillbillies would get you a pass. One of my best friend's family is from the deep West Virginia hills. As a matter of fact, this family has two sisters that maried two brothers that lived across the "Holler" from one another. (Their words) These people are the ones that Geech claims he cannot stand as they are true Hill people. Yet they are the nicest, most decent people I have ever met. I've eaten dinner with the entire family on several occasions and they are absolutely wonderful people.

    Interesting stuff from Grossi

    This is why I don't believe a word of it. That regime had their problems but the senselessness wouldn't have went that far. Sounds far fetched and as if someone is reaching for a story.
  6. Also, OT's don't normally get a lot of help. They are suppose to play in space and keep everything from going outside on Pass plays. Guards on the other hand will get help from time to time from a center. They will be one on one as well but they do often get help from the center. If you look at the stats, you'll never see guards with 10 to 12 sacks allowed like you do OT's. I'm sure Steinbach loved the Browns #1 pick!

    Lets Be Realistic...

    I agree Lum. But I wonder why there isn't many on here with any faith in Rucker. Coming out of camp last year he was all the rave. I still think this kid (6'5" 250 lbs.) could be a very good TE and look for him to challenge for a starting spot. With him it will depend on how much he wants it. It supposedly has always been that way with Rucker.

    Nascar Forum?

    Ah, but you can't use that explaination. You didn't stop at Humanity (Or "people" in this case) by saying I love humanity but I hate humanity (People). You continued by defining 'People" in your post as "hillbillies". Those are the "People" (Or group) that you cannot stand. Thus, the only definition that can be attached to your use of the word "People" is a certain group. Good try Pal. But you still lose. It's still like watching your mouth (Or keyboard in this case) continue to fall down the stairs.

    Nascar Forum?

    Oh geez...I've heard it all now. Then your orignal statement that you love humanity but hate people like hillbillies makes no sense. If you use your definition of "People" that you posted above, it would be like your original quote was, "I love humanity but I hate humanity". The definition of "People" you list in the above quote is the same as the definition of "Humanity". That makes your orignal post senseless. You were making a clear seperation and distinction between Humanity and people. Your quote was "I love humanity but hate people, especially hillbillies". Thus, "Humanity" and "people" cannot refer to humans as a whole. "People" in your post referred to a certain group or race. Go down Webster's definition of "People" to about the third or fourth listing and that is the context you meant to portray in that statement. I'm pretty sure the third or fourth listing will show the definition as 'Particular groups of persons" As in...Jewish "people", or Black "people". Or Hill "people". That is what you meant....I can't believe you are trying to back out of that one now! And doing it by making no sense whatsoever! ROTFL!!! I said before that this conversation with you has been like watching your mouth fall down the stairs and it just continues. You should've either apologized or stuck by your original post. That is, that you hate hillbillies. This back tracking makes you look really ridiculous.

    Uh Oh....The hated Devils!!! What a huge rivalry that is! yeah, the vision of Messier shaking that cup is burned into my memory.

    Mills would probably do it since he suggested it. I'm willing to help moderate it. I've never done it but am willing to learn and help.
  13. I understand your points and don't totally disagree but just look at the ranking in 2000. Baltimore. #1 in total defense #14 in total offense. Lewis was only the 7th leading rusher that year. They were very, very good at rushing the ball. But it was still their defense that won that championship. That stat of the #1 Defense and #14 offense kinda makes my point even more. An average offense and a great defense

    Nascar Forum?

    I don't mind the shoot out as much as I mind how the 12 drivers get there. The problem you state would disappear if they made winning each race leading up to the shoot out more valuable. While Stewart has had a solid season it has also been without a win and he's second in points. I hate that. I'm a Jack Roush and Edwards fan. Carl hasn't said it (He can't) but I'm sure his attitude this year was that he was just going to be sure to hang around the top 12 rather than winning so many races. He won more than anyone last year and what good did it do him? This needs to change.

    Nascar Forum?

    I can completely respect this. You don't care for it and enough said. It's when Geech and starts talking about NASCAR being dominated by hillbillies and that he can't stand them is what I have a problem with. It's not only ignorant but Bigoted. I'd like a Hockey forum too....But I doubt that 10% of the guys on this thread like hockey. I'm a huge N.Y. Rangers fan. I would be a Blue Jacket fan as I'm a fan of every other Ohio sports franchise but I started rooting for the Rangers 25 years ago and can't give up my first love! I became a Rangers fan because they were the Cleveland Indians of the NHL. They had not won a cup for 30 years. Then they finally won it in 1994.

    Nascar Forum?

    Wow...That is a change of heart. Now you say that Assholes are the only ones you don't like. But in the above statement you said you can't stand Hillbillies. Hmmmm.......Maybe it's Hilbillies that are Assholes that you don't like? Is that what you are trying to say? Oh wait...you were just joking around....Ok. I'm just trying to help you out Geech....After all your post in this thread, Well, it was like watching your mouth fall continually down the stairs.
  17. In the end it had little to do with the Steeler's O-line or their QB or their RB's or the WR's The Steelers proved one thing. Just as the Raven did a few years ago. You can win a Super Bowl with an average offense as long as you have a fantastic defense to carry the load.

    Carroll activated, Barfield out

    I really wish he'd stop playing with the starting nine. Except for the occasional day off for rest. I know it's not going to happen with Wedge. It's alwasy been a different lineup every day since he's been the skipper. Sure a far cry from the days of Bell, Loften and Ramirez in the OF with Omar, Alomar, Thome and Alomar everyday in the infield. That being said, I hope he allows Valbuena to get a lot of at bats. It is doing him no good to allow him to sit. If his siting is going to be the case then send him down so he can play every day and call up another pitcher.

    Peter King ranks the league

    I have always felt there is something mentally disturbed about an individual that becomes a member of a rivals board (Troll) You are lacking something inside that needs fullfilled through posting as an adversary.

    This is the best post in this thread. Well written Tims.

    Nascar Forum?

    But using your criteria again, you and every other American is a hillbilly. Or did you just say everyone below Canada is a hillbilly to save yourself from a completely ignorant statement concerning Nascar? The more you type the more you contradict yourself and sound foolish. So you love humanity but hate people. Since "People" is a reference to certain groups and not humanity as a whole I would say you are the epitome of a racist and bigot.

    Nascar Forum?

    Ooops, Sorry. I didn't realize you were including all the ex 2nd world countries and third world countries. Using your criteria then every sport is international. Nascar has a Columbian driver and a Tasmanian driver so I guess it must be an international sport as well. In truth, Formula 1 is basically a European sport and Nascar is an American sport. Each has a couple drivers outside of Europe and the U.S. But for the most part the respective drivers are European and American.

    Isn't that an oxymoron?
