  1. You can easily argue what McQueary did was worse. HE saw it first hand, he did nothing, and then when it appeared the university did nothing he stuck around to move up the ranksI know what I would do if I saw something like this happening. Sadly, I don't know if I would have taken the hero route when I was 22. It is admittedly a situation I would not have been ready to handle.He was 28.Well, then that changes things.

  3. Which one? That grand jury reports are not always 100% factual? That was the only comment I intended to make.And apology accepted. I totally understand the rage people have in these situations. Thank you. It's difficult for me to stay calm when I hear about stuff like this.the acts are so disturbing it fires people upand joepa is so revered he fires people up in his defense it's a bad situation, and that had to play a part in the decision to fire him. This saturday's game could have turned REALLY ugly REALLY fast. I hope Husker players and fans don't go too far either. I know college football gets emotions running high, and Paterno not being there may difuse some of it, but it's still volatile. IF a few husker players or fans go down the Pedo State line that some in this thread have things could get really bad. Sal's dead. Go Big Red!The Husker fans will take their shots.
  4. Exactly. The proper perspective is that football is just a game.This.Only 1 home game left - hard to imagine it won't be a circus.Road games will be interesting too.Kind of hoping for a bowl game against Stanford just to see what kind of shot the band takes.
  5. Aaron, you stated you have worked with children of sexual abuse so obviously you have a different POV but do you really hold Paterno responsible for Sandusky's actions? Paterno wasn't holding the children down while Sandusky raped them. He probably didn't want to believe it when he heard the story and while that might not fly in your mind that is a real emotion in human beings. Many people in history have not acted upon knowledge or acted in a way where they could help. Some people simply freeze or go into denial but I don't think Joe purposely was trying to hurt anyone. If he had walked in and witnessed the event then we might have a different story to discuss or things might have turned out different. Ever hear the story about doubting Thomas?Pardon my frankness, but this is bull####.No its not bull####, it's how people behave. Remember the disciples? They fled for the most part.I realize it's how some people behave. It's the defending of that behavior that's bull####.This was not an isolated incident. There were at least 8 victims in a pattern of behavior that went on for 15 years. Paterno and everyone else involved in this fiasco had reason to believe that boys lives were being destroyed and they sat by and did nothing. No amount of, "Yeah, but look what THAT guy did" can ever justify their inaction.So tell us how you feel about the Catholic Church, the original Christianity.Christianity was around long before the Catholic Church, but why let facts get in the way at this point?
  6. Is hearsay admissible or did he know more than what is being reported? I don't know what he does for the case that the GA doesn't provide already - other than trying to save what is left of his image.
  7. So you agree then that Ingram played well last night? OK, just wanted to be sure.Of course.I mean, look at what James Starks did late last year. that definitely added a dimension to the Packers offense. It beats up and demoralizes defense.The Colts D was beat up and demoralized before Ingram saw any significant action.
  8. Was my RB7 a week ago, now due to injury my RB3 behind Hardesty and Carter
  9. How was the myth debunked?It's not that difficult, really.He simply took out all of Ingram's carries in short yardage situations and his ypc only improved by 0.1.Every Saints RB has a poor YPC with the exception of Sproles, but Sproles carries are rarely typical run plays. Ingram's carries have all been obvious and vanilla running plays. Payton admitted it himself.What would you define as a typical run play? Pretty sure Sproles is outperforming Ingram anyway you want to spin it.
  10. What am I missing?This is Ingram's downward trend after his Heisman sophomore season: 1) Ingram had a much worse Junior season vs Senior season. .6 less YPC and almost 800 less rushing yards, including performing very average in big time games. 2) Ingram had a poor/average combine, which showed he isn't fast/strong/explosive. 3) Ingram has averaged 3.4 YPC on his first 71 carries behind a good run blocking OL. Pierre Thomas is averaging 4.0 on 41 carries and Darren Sproles is averaging 7.4 YPC on 27 carries. Ingrams running plays are coming on running downs. when Sproles enters the game teams are expecting the pass so it is much easier to find room when you do run. you see this(better average per carry than the starter) alot with teams 3rd down backs. Sproles splits:1st down 9-43 4.8ypc 2nd down 12-63 5.3 ypc none of these carries with more than 10 to go for first.
  11. But as usual, most people here lack patience and freak out when he isn't a stud from day 1. It's sillyWell there are some of us who like to point and laugh too.
  12. 10 points is his ceiling, and that is dependent on getting a TD. His floor is 1-2 points.Not this week. NO lost last week, they've got a home game on SNF, and the Colts D can't make up for the pressure their pathetic offense puts on them. NO will roll and Ingram will find holes. It's primetime and the rookie is about to show up big. This is what I thought week 1 vs GB so I started him over Felix Jones...It didnt exactly work out right.Wha? Week 1 was not the week to start him. GB's offense almost guaranteed it would be a shoot out. And GB's defense was considered much stronger than Indy's ever was. Playing a Peytonless Indy at home on SNF in week 7 can not be compared to week 1 against GB in Lambeau.It's been a different excuse every week. High scoring game. Low scoring game. Playing from behind. Playing to protect a lead. The good thing is a broken watch is right twice a day. Hopefully it is this week as I am forced to start him as well (Best/Felix)
  13. And yet the premise of this thread was that he was a lock for the HOF because he went to the Saints.
  14. I don't blame Ingram or Thomas at all for all the TB defenders penetrating a yard or two deep on almost every rushing play.This is the same defense that got lit up last week (when they were healthy) by San Francisco.SF has better O-Line? Or just a better RBYou're telling me Gore is currently better than Ingram....thanks Scoop!!Who said anything about Gore?

Or just a better RBMore than likely so but that doesn't explain your reply to defenders being in the backfield on most rushing plays.I just fail to see the upside of a RB whose O-Line can't keep a banged up D out of the backfield

  18. that was Pierre Thomas:goodposting:Ingram's got a heckuva hate club.Yeah. A fumble would really put a damper on his 5-10 performance.
  19. Please clarify. Do you mean he is a BUY for redraft or for dynasty, or for both, and why? Just because Payton keeps saying he wants to get Ingram more touches doesn't mean a whole lot until we see it on the field, and we see Ingram doing something with the touches. Do you believe that Thomas is going to be relegated to the bench?Sorry, this is in dynasty. I don't have much opinion in redraft since it's inferior.
  20. Maybe he plays in a dynasty league.Ingram isn't unique. He could have gotten another guy just like him next year, and without overpaying.I won't disagree with you, but obviously Payton felt differently.
  21. Maybe he plays in a dynasty league.
  22. You're talking about a guy on pace for about 800 yards in his rookie season in a 3-way time share. But yeah, bust of the century about sums it up. He is average 43 rushing yards/game by my count (46 yards/game if you count receiving yards), which is closer to 700 yards, and still pretty much fantasy irrelevant. Absolute bust for most who drafted him.If you took him in redraft and expected him to be a stud immediately in a 3 or 4-way timeshare, you weren't paying attention. If you took him in dynasty and you're already dumping him, you're an idiot.I mean the universal "you" not you personally. Paying attention to what? The experts on this site had him as a 4th, possible 3rd round reach with a projected floor of 250 carries.
  23. Jesus. How much are you betting per hand?The system. 100 units. Increase a unit after each hand won, bump back down to 100 after a loss. Max bet is 500. Every now and then even when I should be at a single unit, I'll pop off at the max bet and see how it goes. Sometimes I'll get a run of 8 or so wins that way. Accumulates fast when that happens. I just wish 500 weren't the max.Nearing 30k... very nice pull
