    El Paso getting just run over:



    The city is talking about much stricter measures now. Supposed to be a press conference soon.

    I heard on the radio this morning that we are just about the worst in the country at social distancing, based on cellphone proximity data. And that doesn't surprise me... Although people here are extremely good about wearing masks out in public, they are terrible about having family+friends get-togethers where they don't wear masks. El Pasoans are all about backyard parties.

  2. This team is so bad that a guy who famously doesn't score TDs had 2 against them!

    I mean, I get that the D is undermanned and inexperienced right now, but what I don't get is the offense just coming out and immediately dying on the field. Not enough has changed on that side of the ball to justify the struggles by Cousins. He's had WAY TOO MANY horrific, inexplicable "forgot my pen, #### the bed" stretches of play.

    At least they gave us some entertainment today. I was expecting a blowout loss and didn’t plan on watching. I ended up tuning in for the 2nd half and saw some entertaining football for the first time this season 

    True. It was nice seeing Cook go off and Jefferson finally getting involved.

    I know it's not fact, but I feel like Jefferson after one big game already has more career yards than Treadwell.

    Sort of depressing to see the Raiders lose 3/5 of its OL (which is highest paid in NFL) and continue to get good run block push and pass protection, with backups, against the Saints DL. Hell, I'd settle for the Raiders backups at this point.

    Well, on the grass is only greener side, sure they made do with what they had and won the game, but let's not get carried away. The RBs only averaged 3.5 per carry. There were several times when runs got blown up in the backfield for a big loss. They also schemed to Carr's advantages to get the ball out of his hands quickly.

    I think the real key here is, they had a solid game plan and stuck to it. They continued to run even when it wasn't working well. They utilized their backs and TEs in the passing game because their WRs are inexperienced rookies. Now those are things the Vikings could definitely learn from.

    They’ll both have SSDs and load times should be exponentially faster on both. Sony is touting a faster version of their SSD, but it’s a bit unclear to what extent thats true and if it is, whether it will make a noticeable difference. But yeah, better load times are why I’ll be preordering one of these even though it doesn’t look like either will launch with any killer exclusives. 

    Oh for sure, I expect a huge jump in the performance of the xbox drive as well. Time will tell if Sony's customized drive is truly superior, but it seems that way from dev comments.

    Either way, most games will likely perform similarly on both platforms. If someone is trying to decide, it's probably best to just get the one they'll  be able to play with friends on.

    Interesting. Does that hard drive speed translate to faster load times?  Little to no load times would indeed be a game changer. I don't even play some games solely because I fall asleep if their too long and often go back to back like if you accidentally go through the wrong door in Skyrim or FO.  

    Any idea if Sony is going to have a better interface and online experience? This is where XBOX usually demolishes Sony.

    Yeah I really hope Sony completely overhauls its store. It's terrible.

    So I havent seen much chatter in here about the new systems. Ive tried looking on youtube but it's no better than in 2006 or whenever that was....

    Xbox are saying the series X is the most powerful thing in the galaxy.

    Sony fanboys seem helbent on saying how the xbox doesnt look good and is crap. 


    I can't seem to get an unbiased review. I'll be sitting out the first few months at least. Likely pick up a xbox x and give it to my daughter for christmas. 

    From everything I've read, spec-wise they're fairly similar, except Xbox has a little better graphics capability, and PS has superior hard drive performance. Industry observers think the hard drive difference will be a game changer, while there is concern that it will be difficult for devs to take full advantage of Xbox specs because of Microsoft's vision of making new games work across their whole ecosystem. Like you say-  it's difficult to get an unbiased viewpoint, which is why I've been listening to chatter from the devs with actual hands-on experience on both of the new devkits. They haven't been extremely forthcoming but you can still get a sense where their excitement is.

    I will likely get both at some point, but I'll go with PS5 first. Everything I've read about that hard drive speed sways me.

    I think the Vikings have improved because of Cleveland. Gadney and Jefferson hopefully can replace Diggs and Waynes, that is just trying to get back to what they had though.

    This is true, but I'm at least happy they've tried to fill those holes. Better than adding to spots that already have solid starters, especially in rounds that have the best chance for immediate impact.

    I've got a feeling Rodgers is on his way out. Sooner than later.

    Oddly enough it sure seems that way. I have a hard time imagining a guy with a Senior season of 20-17 TD/Int ratio ending up being an NFL starter and pushing out a probable Hall-of-Famer, but stranger things have happened.

    Not much in my view although Dillon should be an upgrade over Williams.

    Agreed. I guess I just don't see a team moving more towards committee RB being a concern. Now had they loaded up at WR, TE, OL... then I'd be worried about how that would give a boost to Rodgers.
