  1. Some random thoughts to bump our ongoing Seattle thread. Everyone is currently in love with DK, but he's nowhere near the best WR in the league right now. Too many drops, and he still turns like a battleship. However, he is a battleship, and those monster killing devices have a purpose. I'm glad that Seattle is using him wisely. Hoping that he becomes more consistent and reliable holding onto the ball. My head tells me Lockett is still the better player overall, but maybe not for long. We'll see. The thing that makes Pete and Russell so special is the never ending positive attitude. I've not witnessed either one of them lose heart in the past ten years. They're perfect for each other. I think Carson is a special talent. He's a better receiver than he gets credit for. Runs insanely hard. Hope his body can make it through a full year. The lack of a pass rush is going to cost Seattle a game eventually. Bobby Wagner has been getting blown up too often. He needs Snacks badly to show up and occupy more blockers so he can be clean to run to the ball. This said, KJ Wright is having one his best years ten years into his career. He just keeps making huge plays. Minnesota had an awesome game plan to start last night. The two deep safeties removed the Seattle passing game the entire first half. I can't imagine how Pete kept it together watching Russell try to throw the ball when he was staring at a consistent six in the box defense. At his core I think Pete would have rather switched sidelines and ran the ball like Minnesota did. Not being able to win the game by out-physically the other team has to eating at him a bit, but he does look like he's still have a lot of fun. Dickson looks like he's back his All-Pro rookie season. Dude paints pictures with punts. No fan wants to see their punter trot onto the field, but he's pretty dang good. Will be nice to get Adams back after the bye, but it's also nice to see the front office find another gem in Neal.
  2. And then Minnesota expects them to come out running. The games is chess, not checkers.
  3. That’s technically correct, but silly. the three runs Wilson has are scrambles after he dropped back. Throw in the four sacks and here’s the real count. pass plays called = 14 run plays called = 4
  4. Bobby Wagner got an MVP vote. Dak Prescott got an MVP vote. Seriously. Quit being a tool. If you have to have it, take the last word. I promise I won't reply to you.
  5. No, you assumed. I only pointed it out. Do you frequently walk around telling people what they should and shouldn't be surprised by? You don't want to be that guy. It's a bad look,.
  6. Did I say that? I don't think so. I just pointed out he's never received a vote. It's surprising. He's had several years where he could have had consideration and earned a vote or two. He's led the league in passer rating (2015). He's led the league in TD passes(2017). He was PFF's MVP last year (2019).
  7. Six years and counting. Still my favorite thread to bump. Atta meatwad.
  8. Russell has never received a single MVP vote. Not one.
  9. The prosecution presents exhibit A. I don't believe it was KidC. I can't remember who it was. He called it AVT. We had exchanged some emails (two maybe?) about this article I wrote. Some form of credit would have been nice, but that was around 20 years ago. Both Greg Kellogg and Bob Harris (I think. Can't be sure of who it was) told me they had also written articles detailing the same concept long before I did. Thanks for that blast from the past. I'm sure I'm not the only one around here that has a bit of a "foggy" memory. Early onset suxor. Law of ccosines? No sweat. Derivative of the inverse tangent? Got it. My brothers name? Ummm.
  10. No. It's not. It's selective reporting. I just watched (on fox) the hearing and they were showing pictures of tons of blue mail boxes piled up as if they were recently gathered. They've been taking those down for years. They've been removing sorting machines for years. I just talked to my insanely liberal step dad (postal workers union president) and he even told me its a non-story.
  11. I feel obliged to contribute to this thread and story in general. Both my parents are life long USPS workers. My step-dad was president of the WA state postal workers union for a long time (mail handlers, not letter carriers). Full disclosure, I'm pretty much a bleeding heart liberal. This entire fiasco looks like a non-story to me. It's a lot of noise stemming from paranoia in my opinion. I've been voting by mail in WA state for so long that I don't know how many years its been. There's never been any talk about it being fraudulent and I think any talk about that now is just conspiracy theory run amok. I think our president is generally a dirtbag, but we're wasting our time with this story. I'm watching the Dejoy hearing right now. He comes off as completely honest and reputable. Several of the (D) senators don't. They're grandstanding, and it's embarrassing. Demanding "yes or no" answers to complex questions is just silly. They look so partisan its pathetic. Every time they mention some disabled vet and their medication I cringe. Both Romney and Paul were being reasonable in their line of questioning. Dejoy isn't trying to dismantle the postal service. He's facing the reality that all the post master generals have faced since the advent of the internet. Ask yourself, when's the last time you had to rely on mailing a letter using a blue box? When's the last time you sent someone a letter via email as opposed to sending a hand written letter? I don't have a problem with taking steps to make the post office more efficient. We don't need delivery 6 days a week. It's reasonable to understand that the the postal work force is being slowly lowered in numbers over time. I fully get that unneeded machinery is being removed. That said, I think it's fair to assume the post office shouldn't be running at a profit. In order run at a profit you're going to have to raise the cost of a first class stamp a ton. Go to UPS or FEDEX and ask them to hand deliver a letter across the country in three days. How much is that going to cost you? Watching both sides of the aisle position themselves so they can claim skulduggery after the election is just lame.
  12. How do I feel about baseball? I'm the worst fear of MLB come to fruition. I'm a 51 year old white male and I'm 100% ambivalent about MLB. They started to lose me about 20 years ago. Eventually I got to the point where I stopped following the sport entirely. I don't have an opinion about the state of baseball either way. I believe Seager is still a Seattle Mariner. Other than him I can't name another player on the roster. I used to watch when I knew Felix was pitching, but haven't watched a game in at least a couple of years. I guess I bothered to respond to the thread.
  13. Another thought to add on this... The process of notifying a parent or a student via email or phone call is just silly now and really just enabling. If they don't know, they don't want to know. I'm guessing there's not a high school in the country that doesn't use some form of online reporting system to let parents and students both know exactly where the students stands on every assignment. There are some teachers that don't update their grades every day, but that's another story. I put that on administration for allowing them to slack. We're living in an age now where grade information can and should be real time. I keep my grades real time as much as possible, but I've moved one step farther now. I don't give an assignment unless it's already posted online. I would rather change the conversation. Not "why didn't you do?", but instead "what's due tomorrow?".
