  1. They’ve been trying to trade for Trent & other OTs for a few years now. My boy Tytus Howard & fellow rookie Max Scharping failed to impress in OTA’s — they fired the GM who made those picks 45 days after he made them.
  2. Following OTA’s, Houston’s interest in Trent has increased.
  3. I was probably more disappointed by the DH pick than anyone in the world, but his upside is clearly immense to anyone being objective ... I think people still underestimate how difficult it is to do what DH is trying to do. 14 starts ago he was playing some group of 165lb kids who all run 6.0 40s & now he’s going to be tasked with trying to beat NFL defenses from the pocket. Mahomes, Dak, Luck, Watson ... they can all move and they all played a ton of football before taking an NFL snap — DH has a tougher job than any of them because he will have to gain nearly every yard from the pocket... no broken plays, just his processing & fundamentals one snap after another without an elite weapon on the outside. Brutal circumstances for the youngster, but the arm & work ethic are there, he just needs a zillion reps... as you already know. Hope the beatniks find some OCs & QBs to get feedback from.
  4. There is only one group of humans that prefers to work with less - young coaches. The opportunity to feel like you are earning every yard, with your mind, is intoxicating to many ....supremely confident ... young coaches. In both basketball & football... it’s their proving ground. Most grow to want elite talent, but some love proving they can beat anyone with anyone & never grow out of that place, Gary Williams at Maryland didn’t take recruiting nearly as seriously as he could have because he liked proving his Xs & Os could beat anyone’s 5 star athletes. In NE they love flipping their talent for pieces who will play their assignments & do nothing more. Nick Saban, on the other hand, will take his ball & go home the moment he feels he isn’t working with an advantage... that guy cheats more in Maryland than Maryland, so does Harbaugh. Oh, I went wandering off. My apologies.
  5. Eat 5 times a day Eat your fruits & vegetables Make sure you get breakfast Limit fat intake All bad advice, all given as a matter of routine to diabetics. The most important element, sleep. Not an option for many parents. That eliminates the most vital part of any diet immediately. People follow these steps & see no improvement... that’s not because they chose not to improve themselves.
  6. I suspect many would tell you that your diabetes is easily fixed with a dietary change, how long would you stay on it to see if it’s true? Is depression a choice? Can all single parents eat the way you described above? It’s possible for most to avoid becoming obese, but the recovery from it is more than you make it out to be, imo. Many diabetics can’t exercise much, I know a lot of hard working people who have fought weight issues their entire lives ... many get atrocious advice from Drs, who’s fault is it when the books a dr read in medical school are actually worthless?
  7. The nutritional value of your food is entirely dependent upon the ground it grows from or is consumed from ... there is, quite literally, different nutritional value in a tomato grown in one part of the world v another. There is more to it, social factors, etc ... it’s certainly not black & white.
  8. Larry, are you on a pad/phone? The issue you had has come about on my iPad a time or two. Autophagy/water fasting/low sugar life style.

    New Sexual Assault Allegation against Trump

    Yes, he contradicts himself, he claims empathy is largely in identifying yourself, visually, in others, then states that it’s easy to manipulate the empathetic by showing them images of suffering in people who look nothing like the target audience looks. He also conflates empathy with compassion even after expressing the distinction. I really don’t think a person without empathy can teach us much about it, just as I don’t think men can teach us about the experience of women & White people cant teach us about the experience of Latinos. There is more nuance to our existence but people stop identifying what distinguishes one life from the next as soon as they’ve had a glance, the value in each of us is in what separates our experiences, but the vast majority seek the companionship of those who have similar experiences & who look similar... which Bloom mistakes for empathy, which is truly just the basic human need for companionship. Empathy isn’t a choice & without it our civilization would fail, imo, but if everyone was deeply empathetic ... it would be equally disastrous, if not more so. The pieces of ourselves that are empathized with by no one, don’t exist anywhere. Empathy is something every single bit of our lives gains from, but it’s difficult to sustain a connection to an entity that accompanies your most intimate pieces so nearly. The pieces of ourselves that are entirely unaccompanied are where loneliness, frustration, and turmoil build ... but when you find the connection for those lonely pieces, you create room for growth/expanding. Empathy is nearly a necessity ... not to possess it, but to have access to it. Bloom is wrong. Imho.
  10. Sneaky little film this
  11. Per Urban, as of 20 minutes ago, no QB he’s worked with picked up a playbook as quickly as DH. *Urban will be back in coaching in the near future.

    There is no greater strength/trait than empathy. The only issue with true empathy is the battle to invest it with some semblance of rationale so as not to enervate the entirety of yourself all at once ... an exhausting... overwhelmingly rewarding, benison.

    I’m left to assume you’re a man of action & this is not irony repeating itself. I work on my iPad ...from wherever I care to be, I can debate any topic I like while taking any action I care to invest my time in; I’ve been quite fortunate. I have not gotten into any political debates here, there is no trump supporter with any values, principles, or dignity, so a political debate would serve no purpose. I enjoy a bit of banter on the ES, but it’s all in good fun, your solemn hopes need not be so solemn, though I agree entirely with all the lies within them.
  14. There isn’t any chance Haskins is struggling to pick up the playbook in meetings, but there was always going to be struggles translating that to the field. DH is a bright kid, but one of his struggles is processing at game speed, which he hasn’t seen yet. Haskins struggled v Nebraska with infinitely superior talent, he’s going to struggle mightily here early. This is inevitable, what we do to help him grow is the question. As of now, no Trent, no #1 WR, and a weak interior line is not a great start. Cooley is the man. He is the only football yapper in DC worthy of a listen.

    BitCoin falling like a Dotcom

    I know that you have no idea what blockchain is, I know you have no idea what dlt is, and I know you have no idea what Swift is, but I humbly present you with the opportunity to learn a bit. Friendship grows. If you’d post more frequently, I’d get to laugh more often. Not to be selfish, but I do hope you return with more of your hard hitting insight.

    Your hopes mean a great deal to me, I suspect you’ll have the same heart to heart with those who attempted to belittle me, your support would mean a great deal. Thank you. Who offered any philosophy opposing crypto? That’s a rhetorical question, my dear friend. I’ve only been met with incoherent groupthink passed off as actual knowledge. The firsts posts in this thread were made by ignorant buffoons patting themselves on the back for giving others advice they weren’t qualified to give. You don’t have a philosophy, but you weren’t shy to criticize something you have absolutely no knowledge about. Why would you pretend to know something about crypto... when, in reality, you know 2 things, Jack & . I’m the only person in this thread who knows this space well, and I’m the only one who has seen the value of btc go in the direction speculated. You people who need the companionship of agreement are fine entertainment, but there may be people who read this who actually want an idea of where to start their own research, and I’ve, humbly, provided a few places to start... while navigating through the laughable considerations of inferior beings. Here’s reality, in every conversation one human is brighter than the other, the person I’m speaking with is always the other. You, here, are the other. Read, don’t hope, I have no need for your well wishes or gentle sentiments. If anyone here wants to have a real conversation about crypto, I’d be happy to help that conversation move along more cordially, but this thread is nothing but bravado v the one guy who knows what he’s talking about ... and I can play that game better than all of you guys too.

    Jonestown member, @tshile - enjoy your beverage. The simple minded addlepate would prefer to find his nearest intellectual companion on the net than gain a bit of knowledge — the allure of companionship is profound, particularly for your type.
