  1. Republicans have unleashed an ignorant, blind, and selfish beast on this country and eventually they’re going to learn that they won’t be able to control it, but instead be consumed and yoked by it. 
     

    I hate these primitive mother****ers. This is pure corruption of truth, progress, and principle via a reduction into simplicity and extremism.

    Lol right..my agenda to say that neither story is 100% accurate....my evil neutral agenda.

    I must have missed any qualifiers you had in there...

     

    You did miss them.

     

    What's up with you trying to act like I'm demonizing stuff? I'm not demonizing or doing any over-simplifying good vs evil bull****. 

     

    What you see as neutral, I see as an attempt at false equivalency used to cope with the discomfort felt at having time honored (white-washed) traditions challenged. We know who ended up being the ultimate victims in this story and we know that pilgrims had a superiority/inferiority complex with native americans. How many native americans are around now? Do we really need to rehash the history available to get you to recognize there is a real element of made up candy coated bull**** around pilgrims and thanksgiving? **** that disneyfication.

     

    Deal with it. Don't hide it by saying well there are two sides to a story, so this account is automatically not true or native americans are evil too and would murder pilgrims without compunction like the poster below you said. There can be 2 sides to a story and the truth showing one party was more clearly in the wrong than the other. The truth is not always in the middle if one side is more extreme or has worse character than the other, especially when it comes to leadership.

    Just remember that while you are demonizing the pilgrim leadership that just because the opposing side said something doesn't make it 100% true either....especially when there is an agenda present. 

     

    Just realize that there are 2 sides to a story, and somewhere in the middle is the truth.

     

    If you paid attention to the actual words I wrote, I made sure to put in character based qualifiers that would filter out the people from both sides of the discussion who didn't fit the sentiments I listed. You might want to check your own agenda.

  4. Truth has an edge to it, that’s how it cuts through the bull****. I’d rather know the truth of things even if it hurts or is stressful/discomforting. Thanks for posting this OP. 
     

    When your traditions are built on candy coated manure, it’s better to face that honestly and build back something better. I’m going to use this new information and make sure I spend time honoring the native Americans who met in good faith and make sure those sentiments are stronger in me than the fear, selfishness, and greed that makes others use people and take them for granted like the pilgrim leadership did.

    Does anyone think this is probably our best FA class we've had in a while? Fuller, Darby, McKissic, Schweitzer, KPL (depending on the day) make up one of the best classes we've had in a while imo. 

     

    I think so. Kyle and company did a damn good job looking for guys on the cusp of taking a leap forward if given more opportunities. Plus, they did a good job in knowing when to not overpay for a FA, like with Austin Hooper who isn't doing much for the Browns. I'm hoping next year, we're setup to really take advantage of FA, especially after the team has a much better idea of who fits and who doesn't, going forwards.

  6. My new LG Nanocell 85 finally came and got setup. Man 4K is trippy as **** watching tv on but it definitely boosted my ps5 experience both visually and audibly. I just gotta mess with the darkness because it’s too much at current settings.

  7. Thought this was a pretty good interview with Zach Wilson that shows his maturity. Said one of the main guys he models his game after is Aaron Rodgers and he studied Burrows entire 2019 season to learn everything he could. He also spent time studying with Drew Brees, Steve Young, and of course John Beck at BYU. He is a football-aholic and regularly watches tape with his dad during the week.

    Sometimes when it comes down to it, a guy that has a decent understanding of things but has some stuff to learn may wind up better in the NFL. They are a blank slate.

     

    Of course, there still needs to be prerequisite knowledge in place.

     

    I don’t think that’s the case RE: Wilson/Lance, but../

     

    I feel you. I'm not sure yet until I do my real evaluations and dig through each necessary variable and use those to project growth at higher speeds and complexities. Each player will have to learn to do something different from what they were getting away with doing in college. And they will have to learn that in a tougher environment. The hardest thing to evaluate in my opinion is how well guys can learn those new things in the NFL pressure cooker and that is even more the case with QB's. It takes fortitude to not fall back into old patterns, but also it takes winning the trust of your team/coach to be given the time and opportunity to learn, by showing a consistent upward trend.

  9. The Wilson and Lance dichotomy is so intriguing to me and I can't wait to fully run them through my evaluation system. I have Zach Wilson firmly ahead of Trey Lance right now in my evaluations, but I need to look deeper into ZW's ability to stay injury free and isolate the plays where his creativity is pressured or limited. Then for Trey, I have to find and isolate his high difficulty throws. I need to see if he can consistently make them and just doesn't need to show it off that much or if he is dependent on single read, easy window throws, that if aren't there lead to him taking off with his legs. 

    Both get away with things in college that they will have to move on from, but what are those things and how well positioned is each player to elevate from those training wheel type situations? Lance has more to learn, but also more natural ability to rely on while Zach is the opposite in certain ways.

    It's very interesting, because I seem to recall last year, his PFF was, I think #1 in the league.

    Am I remembering correctly ?

     

    I remember him having a pretty good coverage grade last year from PFF, but I think that number had a bit to do with a limited sample size. However, the same can be said about his current grade, while also factoring in a new coach/system and the hesitancy that comes with such things.

    WIth all the struggles at LB, I can't help but wonder if we'd see improvement if we switched Anderson from DE to LB.

    And then there's SDH. Why havn't we seen him ?

     

    SDH played some, but lost snaps over the beginning of the season. He hasn't been playing well at all so far according to PFF who has him graded out with a truly **** score of 29.9 Overall.

    Thank you sir.

     

    No problem. The only major negative I saw about the tv was that it was mediocre when it came to differentiating darkness and not the greatest for watching/playing in a pitch black room. I’m cool with that for the price but others may not be. Hopefully a firmware update can fix the problem. 

  13. Man, I've been hunting this TV down all day. It's the cheapest 49" TV I could find with HDMI 2.1 capability with 4K at 120 Hz. LG kept trolling with email updates saying it's back in stock when it wasn't and best buy would make you think it was available until you tried to buy the damn thing.

     

    My wife ended up finding it for $499.91 at pcrichard if anyone is interested in it.
