  1. Obama definitely could and should have been stronger about several things. Syria, realizing that the R's were at war with him, stuff like that. But he didn't make a show of strength to mask weakness, which is what Trump does. It's all bravado "I'd run into the school without a gun" "Rough him up" "Guys that bodyslam people are my kinda guys". He talks big and tough, but we all know he isn't. It's the obvious hypocrisy that bothers me. If you have an example of Obama being a hypocrite and feel compelled to share it, go ahead. But it doesn't in any way change what Trump is, and seems like you're looking to deflect from that by going this route.

    ***2018-19 NBA Season Thread***

    Now imagine this 40 times a season, and maybe have a little more compassion for Wiz fans.
  3. Since there's no perfect solution, let's do nothing? I'm with Burgold.

    Gameday Thread

    I don't know if it was mentioned during the game, is the NFC East wide open?
  5. On the one hand, we're constantly rebuilding. On the other, I wish this team's management realized that we're bad enough to need to rebuild.
  6. "Might have missed a call or two" on two game changing plays. This is a different game if those are called correctly. The refs shouldn't be blamed too much or too little. Atlanta has outplayed us, but they've gotten some gifts as well. This should be a closer game, and the refs have played a role in that.

    https://www.basketball-reference.com/leaders/team_pts.html Phoenix got 107 in a first half in 1990
  8. Shouldn't the Giants only have one timeout? They lost the challenge, then called timeout after the third down run. Am I wrong?
  9. I can think of 9 people in my friends and family that I've tried to have rational discussions about Trump and Trumpism with. It hasn't gone well with any of them, and these are people I've known a long time. You're asking how to solve a problem that can't be solved by an outside agent. How do you get someone who believes Trump is honest to see that he lies constantly? How do you get someone who, with every example of a misdeed says "I don't pay attention to that stuff", "I don't agree with that but I still support him", or some variant of that, to take some degree of responsibility? If you have an answer, I'd love to hear it but I haven't found one. I did try one suggestion, to steer the conversation to economic inequality, and had marginal success, but even then my brother resorted to both-sideism. The sad truth seems to be that there is no answer. About 40 percent of the country has decided facts and truth don't matter any more. How do you fix that? I'd love to have an answer.
  10. When people believe in conspiracies, everything proves the conspiracy. Even things that disprove it, because they're obviously created or caused by people that want to disprove the conspiracy.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    The play calling on the sequence that could have, and should have, put the game away was just awful. Predictable run, predictable run, Alex Smith keeping it and going out of bounds to save the Cowboys their final timeout. First down should have been a play action bootleg, throw it if someone is wide open, otherwise run for what you can and for the love of God, stay inbounds. I'm glad we won the game, but the gutless playcalling being rewarded gives me a bad feeling overall.

    2018: Start of the Philadelphia Eagles Football Dynasty

    I found a copy of Westbrook's latest orders:
  13. Glad we won, but hate that Gruden got rewarded for his gutless calls.
  14. Yes, Trump told you there's a Red wave coming, so you believe him. Maybe the house doesn't flip, a lot can happen between now and November. But that cuts both ways. Also, the gloating that has happened this weekend is sickening.
