  1. Yes, personal decision. Go with your gut when your child is at issue.
  2. Sounds a bit paranoid to me. I guess there is that one case there though.

    1990: 30 Years Since The Season Before Super

    Good thread. I recall how excited everyone was after Humphries won that first game. No one was particularly enamored with Rypien, so there was hope that Hump was going to be the answer. Of course that wasn't the case. I recall the Rutledge comeback game, having gone down to the park behind my house to play football with some friends because we were all pissed when we were down by 17, then my dad yelling down the hill at us that the skins had tied it up or had taken the lead or something. I remember not being old enough to stay up to watch the Monday night eagles game disaster. I also remember how great it was when we beat their ass in the playoffs. Then Rypien did his thing against the 49ers, and the question was when are we finally going to get a real QB in town
  4. My grandmother, who was born in 1910 and grew up in southeast DC, told me about that there were horse drawn death wagons that would circle the streets and the drivers would holler for people to send out their dead relatives. However, my answer to this question would be HIV. If the question is what modern disease did the world fail to control. You can live a long time without symptoms, while remaining contagious.
  5. I'm wondering if the disease figures are being significantly under reported, or if cases are simply going undiagnosed, in some of the southeast asian countries. If big brother China can't get its act together, is it reasonable to assume that Thailand has the assistance it needs? Also, I find it hard to believe (yes, I understand that the numbers are based on "reports" and not actual cases) that there is not a single case yet on the African and South American continents. This has to have made in way into these areas by now. Let's just hope that local custom does not simply assume that people are dying of pneumonia like was (is) the case with AIDS.
  6. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/13/coronavirus-latest-updates-china-hubei.html Well, it appears that China was not counting patients that had been "clinically diagnosed" in its counting method. So tack on another 15,000 cases and the total figure is now over 60,000 infected. Next thing we'll find out that they were not counting "clinically deceased" cases in the mortality figure.

    Such as France?
  9. Its not his fault that he's so smart that he's eyeing a career in politics after he's run out of the NFL. Having a big brain ain't easy, as I'm sure he'd say if you asked him.
  10. Looks like China is keeping its neighbors "in the loop" so to speak. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/02/world/asia/china-coronavirus-philippines-thailand.html Quieter Response to Coronavirus in Countries Where China Holds Sway BANGKOK — In Myanmar, loudspeakers broadcast advice from Buddhist monks: Seven ground peppercorns, exactly seven, placed on the tongue will ward off the coronavirus spreading across Asia and the world. In Indonesia, Terawan Agus Putranto, the health minister, advised citizens to relax and eschew overtime work to avoid the disease, which has killed more than 360 people and infected more than 17,000 others, mostly in China. “To prevent it is very easy as long as your immunity is good,” Mr. Terawan said. And in Cambodia, Prime Minister Hun Sen told a packed news conference on Thursday that he would kick out anyone who was wearing a surgical mask because such measures were creating an unwarranted climate of fear. “The prime minister doesn’t wear a mask,” he said, “so why do you?” Click link to read full article. That is, if you trust the NY Times. Or, so the Germans would have you think...

    What Offer Would Change Your Mind on Trading Down???

    Both 1991 and 1992 were pretty bad, other than Favre, Aeneas Williams, and Ricky Watters.

    What Offer Would Change Your Mind on Trading Down???

    So the decision here on what to do with pick #2 should come down to a straight value analysis, without the emotional component you often see involved in these decisions. The way I see it, Chase Young is a 1/5 player. What I mean by that is that he has about an even chance to become the following, the 1/5 being the first category: (1) A generational pass rusher, (LT, Bruce Smith, J.J. Watt, Reggie White) (2) A borderline Hall of Famer (DeMarcus Ware, Dwight Freeney, John Abraham, Leslie O'Neal, etc.) (3) An occasional pro bowler/solid starter (i.e. Charles Mann, Karl Mecklenberg, Ryan Kerrigan, Ken Harvey) (4) Any of (1)-3) above, but a limited career due to injuries which prevent reaching potential (5) A dud, either due to significant injuries or simply falling far short of expectations. When I say a 1/5 player, that's about as good a prospect as you can have. I do not recall another pass rusher, with the exception of Clowney maybe, being hyped the way Chase Young is being hyped. What type of a package would you be willing to take for this? For me, trade back no further than #5-7 and grab the top prospect that's left on the board that's not named Tua (either Thomas, Wills, Simmons, Okudah, Jeudy). Then another #1 in this draft (no lower than #15, tell your partner to make it happen), a #2 in this draft (no lower than #50), and a #1 next year. The average value of a #2 overall pick (and for that matter picks #1-#4) is hall of fame caliber. Now, I realize that's not how it shakes out when you look at individual players drafted #1-#4, but on average over the spectrum of NFL drafts going back 40 years, that's how the average value analysis shakes out. Think of it this way-- on average we see about 4 players inducted into the Hall of Fame in any given year. That means that about 4 are also coming in each year. Take a look at the drafts from 1990 to 1999 (going back far enough so everyone's most are retired at least 5 years). 1990: 4 1991: 2 1992: 0 (BTW, what a horrible draft year. Remember Ricky Ervins? He was supposed to be the man after 1991) 1993: 4 1994: 4 (K. Warner is in but wasn't draft, will likely be 5 w/ Issac Bruce) 1995: 5 (maybe 6 with Tony Boselli) 1996: 5 (maybe 6 with Zach Thomas) 1997: 4 (should be 5 when Rhonde Barber get in) 1998: 5 (Only Moss is in now, but Manning, Faneca, Charles Woodson, Hines Ward and/or Fred Taylor will also be in, that's 6 so call it 5 total) 1999: 3 (maybe 4 with Edgerrin james) So over that 10 years span, you have 36 who are in (or definitely will be in) the HOF. Then you have 6 more that are about 50/50, so let's call it 39. That's 3.9 HOFers from each draft eligible class. Now (again) if you look at the top 4 picks from each draft, of course it does not pay out that way. But, based on a strict average value analysis the #2 overall pick should be a hall of fame type player. So ask yourself, what type of value would you take in exchange for a HOF player? Edit: One caveat to this. The Redskins should hold on to the #2 pick until it is confirmed that Joe Burrow will be taken by the Bengals. If its not certain on draft day, have your potential deals cooking but don't drop the hammer until Burrow is selected. I'd take Burrow in heartbeat, and keep Haskins for window dressing.
  15. Wow, those "Administration Officials" are really going out on a limb here. Good thing they didn't give their names. Luckily for them, I'm willing to go on the record, and will say that a temporary suspension of flights to China will affect flights into and out of China. I hope I don't get doxxed for this.
