    The KC Star is on drugs. Charles had over 1,500 rushing yards last year despite having games of 3, 4 and 10 rushing yards, but he is gonna get not much more than 1,000 yards this year? LOL, okay.

    I've not heard this before. Recent examples? Do some homework. This is an easy assignment where the entire class gets an A. So you don't know? I sure don't.Not even sure how to dig up recent seasons' former high round draft picks who had disappointed or been underused early in their careers due to non-injury reasons, were suddenly being touted as training camp standouts possibly due to finally live up to the years' old hype, and were climbing up fantasy draft boards due to this, but then subsequently disappointed. And I'm even more certain I don't know how to dig up all such players so that I can determine whether they usually disappoint, or whether the post-hype rebirth/breakout usually comes through. Not exactly Google friendly. ETA: That's why I thought it would expedite things to ask the guy who seemed to already have the data at hand. How about a pretty recent class. Beanie Knowshon Donald Brown How about Benson, Thomas Jones, CJ Spiller, Deangelo Williams, I would guess that more often the guy fails--but guys with high pedigree usually get multiple chances to prove themself. In Benson and Jones' cases, it took going to a different team that used their skills differently. In Spiller's case, he needed to mature and earn more time from a good vet. And in Deangelo's case, he also didn't get enough reps and played for a coach who just doesn't like to start young players.

    I am an IP attorney, and while not rendering specific legal advice to any particular person, I think the risk is very very low for including the salad line.

    High school friend of mine who lives in New Orleans posted a picture of the South Carolina sauce on her Facebook page earlier. It was a worlds colliding moment to see that she checked in at McClure's Barbecue at lunchtime. Very cool.

    Most of his wins come on the same course year after year. 30 of his wins come on just 4 courses. That's over 30%. Other than the Masters, the majors play on a different course every year. Wait a minute, I don't know anything about golf.

    Isn't 4-5 hamstring injuries and foot injury in what, a 3-4 year career, pretty much the definition of injury prone? I own the guy and this statement is just ridiculous. I'm no trainer, but maybe, just maybe, how about some stretching? Hershel Walker said the reason he lasted so long in the NFL Was that he spent more time stretching than he did lifting. Stretch out those hamstrings bro!

    My Brother in-law is a prime example of this. No matter how many times we tried to talk him into getting Health Insurance he always said "Why? It cost too much and I won't use it and if an emergency comes up I'll worry about it then" Now, along comes this, which actually will cost him MORE.. So he'll take the measly $1500 fine..IF they actually find a way to enforce it ( He is self employed )and continue on the way he has.. Nothing with this bill makes him want to jump in.. And he is precisely the type of person we need to jump in if this was to work as they predict. Not saying it is right, as we've tried to explain to him that if he has a Large Health issue come up he could lose everything.. Too which he says " I have a crappy 30+ year old house, a car that is 10 years old.. Let them" If something happened he could sign up that day and be covered. He won't lose anything.

    Here's the thing: getting everyone covered is a worthwhile goal, but it's not the only goal we should be pursuing. Single payer is clearly the simplest way to achieve the goal of getting everyone covered. I don't think anyone would dispute that, if getting everyone covered was the only goal. It's also pretty clear that Obamacare is a step towards this goal (from what preceded it). I don't think anyone would dispute that either, if getting everyone covered was the only goal.Other goals we should pursue include improving overall care (i.e. "better" health care) and more efficient overall care (i.e. "cheaper" and "faster" health care). My problem with Obamacare is that I don't believe it does either of those things. Worse, not only does it not help us move toward either of these goals, it effectively precludes us from moving towards those goals at any time in the near future, because politicians won't want to take up the health care issue again any time in the near future. You are focused very specifically on the goal of getting everyone covered, while others are focused on the other goals I noted, which is why you often talk past each other in evaluating Obamacare. Obamacare does improve overall care and has several cost containment measures. They've been pointed out over and over and over again. And the official, non-partisan scorekeeper on budget related matters studied the ACA and the analysis indicates that Obamacare will actually reduce the deficit over the next 10 years. So while uninformed Tea Party folks continue pushing the Obamacare will bankrupt us meme, the folks who are actually experts at interpreting legislation and accurately determining effects on our budget suggest our budget will be better off WITH Obamacare. It's not just Tea Partiers that believe that Obamacare will cost WAY more than the GAO predicted.Do you remember when it was predicted that the Iraq War would end up costing only a few billion dollars? Historically, adding huge government bureaucracies to very complex processes often leads to lower costs, increased efficiencies, and better services. ETA: Governments are notorious for predicting future costs very accurately and conservatively.

    Hey, some folks like anchovies on pizza. There's something out there for everyone I guess. Rock on. Yep and many here are stuck in a time machine taking them back to 1982. Nothing is wrong with that but music and musicians evolve and so should you. Quality music is quality regardless of time or place. Your statement comes via the filter of your own individual tastes and it is simply false to say that everyone should appreciate the same music as being "quality" that you do.Music means different things to different people. For me, part of it is nostalgia, sure. I like listening to the metal from my teens but also like more current stuff like Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, Imagine Dragons, Muse, Cage the Elephant, etc. My favorite band is Pearl Jam who many people say peaked in the '90s but are still putting out great music to this day. Then I'm into classic rock from the 70s too. Notice that my taste is entirely in the rock genre. To you, stuff like Kanye and this dude is "genius", but I'll never like it. That doesn't make your taste "evolved" and mine stuck in a time machine. People like what they like and it's ignorant to say they should share your tastes. Most of those bands are on Major's list. Most of you guys don't like anything hip hop/sampling related. That's what it comes down to. Kanye has been around for a very long time and is pretty much the reason Common and John Legend blew the f up. Give the man his props. When you say blew up (specifically in reference to Common) what do you mean? #success Pretty sure Dilla and ?uestlove were the cause.......but let's not discredit Common's ability. Resurrection was a might fine release...successful even, and it wasn't produced by any of the guys listed aboveOh, I completely agree. But Like Water For Chocolate was his first commercial success.......before Kanye.

    I'm lazy, and don't really care...but I will give it a read. Link please. long story short the Redskins were forced by the US federal government to integrate their roster in the early 60's, or they would lose the lease on their stadium land. They were the first team located below the Mason Dixon line, last team to be all white. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Preston_Marshall#Biography That's pretty shocking to be that point blank about your racism. Never knew that about the original owner. Thanks for the link, I appreciate it.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcsouth/post/_/id/49606/mark-ingram-ready-to-run-more Every year in this hobby we get signals that something is changing. Sometimes we read those signals wrong, sometimes we ignore them. I have found that ignoring them is a losing strategy. Ingrams situation seems to be changing. You can ignore it and keep saying the last 2 yrs tell you all you need to know. Good luck with that. A Ridley type role/season is on the way. Jump on board or ignore it. Your choice. At the cost to acquire, the choice is easy for me.
