    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Haskins is better than Fromm and Herbert. Herbert is marginally better than Lock, but Haskins is way better than both. Lawrence is better than all of them, but Murray, Haskins, and Tua are all elite prospects too. I like Murray the best of the three of them, but I don't think it's crazy to prefer Haskins over Murray and Tua. He has a far better body than both of them. They're undersized and will have the specter of missing time due to injury over them every season. People are missing on Haskins, just like they did with Baker and Watson in previous years IMO. He's absolutely worth trading up for if the price is only two firsts and mid round change/players. I had taken him off my radar since I assumed we wouldn't be able to trade up to three (Murray goes one, Josh Allen goes two), but if there is a chance he could fall into our range or three won't cost as much as I thought, then we have to go up and get him. It's easily the most impactful move we can make in this draft. Haskins is a workhorse passer and relentless chain mover. People underestimate the quality when they start nitpicking throws and workouts. It's one of the biggest tells of future success IMO. Confidence and consistency of process from read to throw on every passing down are keys to great quarterbacking. With Haskins , moving the offense down the field was effortless. With Lock and Herbert, and yes Daniel Jones, it's laborious. Ditto for Rosen and Allen from the previous year. You see it played out in the massive difference between their production and Haskins's. I don't think people are acknowledging just how great Hasksin's production was BTW. It was game after game of 40+ throws for 400+ yards and 67% completions or better. Just such an effortless and confident passer. The kid had 50 touchdowns and almost 5000 yards last season. That is nuts for an Urban Meyer QB.
  3. Not your vote, no. I could go on and on about how he most closely represented most of your Republican values when compared to Trump, too. But I think I have squeezed enough juice from this rock for a week lol. But when talking about the "God sent him to us" thing, One is silly because come on....God sent him? And one is asinine cause you can hear him talking about assaulting hoes and breaking up marriages for fun. That was my only real point. You can keep your vote.

    Election 2020 - The Presidental Race.

    Nobody's going to spend $100 on a fake ID, so they can cast one illegal vote. Let alone take that fake ID into a polling place, with 20 witnesses and probably a cop standing around. As we've seen in NC, if you want to steal an election, you get yourself put in charge of counting the votes, and then you attack the absentee ballots. That way, you can get at hundreds of votes, without witnesses.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Nobody believes that Haskins is a 2nd rounder in any class. When deciding whether our not to come out this year or next, he was almost swayed to stay for one more year because people felt he'd have a good chance to be the #1 pick in 2020, and would be taken ahead of Tua. The only real knock on him is that he hasn't taken many snaps under center. Since Ryan Day is staying on to be the head coach, that wasn't gonna change if he stayed one more year, meaning there was no real value to staying one more to learn more in college.
  7. Danny never changes; he runs the team into the ground, blames the coach, allows the next regime to start bringing in talent, once that happens he takes back over and send us whirling back into the abyss!!! I thought our last 2 drafts showed us turning the corner in talent evaluation, they weren't perfect, but comparing them to the Vinny/Bruce talent evaluations...they were phenomenal, but it sure looks like Danny is jumping back in, we shall see???

    As to the voter ID law another reason I hate it is the ease at which one can purchase a fake ID online. For less than $100 a person could easily purchase one and use it for voter impersonation. I guarentee ya use one at my polling place the 80 year olds running the show there wouldn't know until it was to late.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    It was better before. The GOP is a bunch of ****knuckles. It's virtually impossible to find an elected GOP official on the national level who doesn't fit into at least one of these categories. - No principles - No brains - No courage edit: Actually no, let's talk about this some more. Like, what ****ing planet have you been living on? You don't think my statement about the GOP lying to scandalize and slander their political opponents is true? Would you disagree with my next point that the lies they tell are absolutely idiotic because they recognize that their base isn't very intelligent and is easily misled by hate and fear? The ****ing president of the United States is a Goddamned birther for Christ's sake.

    The right believes just that. He turned while a POW. Utter garbage. Sen. McCain did not commit treason in Vietnam

    Trump will not win the popular vote. He will lose it by a bigger margin. He could win the Electoral College though.

    Election 2020 - The Presidental Race.

    I've been an independent since I was 20, back in 1988. I have no intentions of joining a party. I will vote for Dems in 2020, like I did in 2018; even though I disagree with alot of their policy proposals. It's just that Trump is an threat to the existence of the country and the GOP is so corrupt; they need to be wiped off the face of the earth. I firmly believe their needs to be more viable options. Independents, 3rd parties and come 2022; will rejoin in my efforts to do that.

    Election 2020 - The Presidental Race.

    The only people who voted for Trump that might switch their vote, are Bernie Supporters. Everyone else that voted for Trump; when push comes to shove; will vote for Trump again. Your winning coalition is this: The Hillary voters from 2016 + The Obama voters, who sat out 2012 and 2016 + people who just never vote or rarely vote. Hillary won 232 EVs. You need to win 38 more to get to 270. Possible targets: Wisconsin -10 Pennsylvania - 20 Michigan - 16 Ohio - 18 North Carolina - 15 Georgia - 16 Florida - 29 Arizona - 11 Iowa - 6 I don't see Trump flipping any Blue states. The Dems need to hold the Hillary states and then flip whatever combo of states needed to get to 270. That's really where the 2020 election will be fought. I think you get the states you need with the right candidate. If some Trump voters realize their mistake, that's even better. I wouldn't rely on them.
  17. The insinuation that John McCain was a traitor is absolutely disgusting. He was a fantastic public servant and without doubt a war hero.

    Election 2020 - The Presidental Race.

    A lot of people like to say that requiring a DL is OK "because it's free if you're poor". But what they're saying is that, if you gather the seven pieces of paper the state demands, then the last piece of paper is free. A decade or so ago, I decided to get photo ID for my mom. (I had intentionally let her DL expire, because I didn't want her thinking she could drive. But I wanted her to have ID, so that she could sign notarized documents.) She's born in the US, has owned the same house for 30 years. Has bank and credit accounts. Taxes, Social Security, Medicare, Federal retirement. She had a fixed address, fixed phone number. I had her Power of Attorney, a fax machine, Internet access, and the time to work on it. It took over a year and a half, and over $350. In fact, after I'd been fighting the bureaucracy for a year or so, I even found a really old, state-certified copy of her birth certificate. Now, a big part of the delay was that Oklahoma had her last name misspelled (or her family changed the way they spelled it). Caused about a year's worth of back and forth before I could get a new copy of her birth certificate. OTOH, she got lucky in some ways, too. In order to get ID in Florida, one of the things you have to have is proof of your SSN. In those days, I was allowed to bring in her 1099, to do that. Shortly thereafter, they changed the rule to require an original SS card. This is important, because to get an SS card, you have to have current state issued ID. I was able to use her 1099 to get photo ID, then use the photo ID to get her SS card. OTOH, try to imagine she was a homeless person who had to do all that on her own. With no fixed address, fax machine, 1099s, pay stubs or utility bills. (Let alone $350).

    Term limits should also be added. That might take an amendment but having lifetime judges isn't working either. Not in 2020. Honestly, until Millennials and GenZers are the majority of the voting public; alot of what needs to be changed, won't happen.

    Snyder values Norman's "star power and sizzle" despite coaches?

    “Let the coaches” is a little strong. Poisoned the lockeroom with his favoritism until the HC quit and ultimately caved to the new GM way after the damage was done is more apt imo.
