  1. What are you asking for in return?
  2. I saw that as well. No way they intentionally leave Julio off a team schedule promo like that unless they know he’s not going to be part of the team. Seems almost too obvious though, would love to hear an explanation if he remains a Falcon. Makes me think they’ve already got a June 1st deal in place.
  3. One of these years will be the year he drops off, but I’m not sure there’s a lot of reason to think this is the year. In 2019, just the season before last, Julio once again put up elite numbers of 99/1394/6. Then last season he had games of: 9/157 8/137/2 8/97 7/137 6/94 So even in 2020, battling injuries much of the season, he was still dominant putting up elite numbers. The only real question is can he still do so consistently? I think he can, but in a different manner. Perhaps fewer targets/receptions on a weekly basis, but in bigger chunks and more TDs. If he stays in Atlanta with Ridley and Pitts, for the first time since his rookie season Julio could be seeing one-on-one coverage. Give Juilo more plays off. Look to Ridley and Pitts more often while targeting Julio more strategically, for big plays and more red zone targets. Used in this manner I can see Julio easily beating one-on-one coverage a few times a game for big plays/TDs. Instead of a volume-rich 9/157/0 we may see 6/102/1, or 5/75/2 which is fine by me fantasy-wise. The question of trade looms large though, and destination is obviously important. That said, a likely suitor would be one of a serious contender with complimentary weapons already in place. A team that could use him in the manner I described above. How do we think Julio Jones would fare with Aaron Rodgers in GB? Or In Buffalo with Josh Allen? What about with Patrick Mahomes in KC? If Julio lands in a destination like that I think elite numbers are very possible, if not likely. He may not get the volume we’re used to but should see plenty of beatable one-on-one coverage and scoring opportunities. Again, he proved just last season that he can still dominate. Of course, if he lands on a bad team it could spell trouble, but a bad/rebuilding team taking on the massive contract of an aging WR just doesn’t make much sense, and is therefore unlikely. I just think some are writing Julio off a bit too soon, and he may turn out to be one of the best fantasy values in 2021.
  4. Edwards keeping his role, and Dobbins becoming a star aren’t mutually exclusive imo.
  5. To a lesser extent, I suppose. But he was a rookie with no training camp or preseason. Still, as a rookie in a timeshare he averaged 6.0 ypc, with 9 TDs, and 8 runs of 20+ yards. And looked awesome doing it. Dobbins enters 2021 as the clear lead back with a year of experience in a now-familiar system. If we safely assume he will improve in year two, with more volume, I think we should expect a pretty great season from JK.
  6. I get the Gus Edwards concern at this point, but I think Dobbins is going to have the kind of year that makes us look back and say “I can’t believe we were worried about Gus Edwards.”
  7. Actually, 3 runs of 70+ yards. Sanders 2020 season was an historic one, accomplishing something most Hall of Fame RBs have not. But yeah, Sanders is a JAG with no explosiveness or upside. Makes zero sense at all. If anything, Sanders is one of the most explosive RBs in the NFL. Honestly, just about everything in that article is rubbish. The writer wants Sanders owners to be concerned about them adding a couple middling free agents, and drafting a RB. The real takeaway here is that Philly didn’t bring in any free agents who would realistically challenge Sanders atop the depth chart, and they bypassed any potential Sanders replacements in the draft, opting to add only a receiving back in the 5th round. All of this should be interpreted as a strong vote of confidence in Sanders as their lead RB. The coaching staff is clearly content with Sanders in that role, and likely pretty excited to have one of the leagues most explosive starting RBs. Why wouldn’t they be? While he may have a limited role as a receiver, Sanders will likely set a career high in touches providing even more opportunities for those explosive plays that can turn a disappointing fantasy day into a week-winning one in an instant. He likely won’t be drafted as an RB1, but I won’t be shocked if he finishes as a top 12 fantasy RB by seasons end, providing many exciting plays along the way. It’s becoming clear that the perception of Miles Sanders is being skewed by the overall mess that was the 2020 Philadelphia Eagles. In fact, Sanders was one of the few bright spots. In 2021 Sanders gets a fresh start, with a new coach who features his RBs, and what should be a strong offensive line. Having something to prove may be just what Sanders needs, and I think he proves his doubters wrong in 2021 with the best season of his young career.
  8. Sanders’ rookie season started slow due to splitting with Jordan Howard, but he showed major flashes over the second half, particularly as a receiver, and was considered a breakout candidate heading into 2020. Unfortunately, 2020 was marred by awful Wentz, and bad coaching/play calling. Impossible to accurately judge Sanders on the overall mess that was the 2020 Eagles. Heading into 2021, Sanders is slated to be the feature back in the same RB friendly system, and under the same head coach, that helped Jonathan Taylor become a star in 2020. Sanders should be leaned on heavily, and has a clear path to finishing as an RB1. Seems like a great buy-low imo.
  9. To be fair, most of us don’t, and never will, know the Dalai Lama, but should we discover his fetish for deep taint messages and surprise rollover ejax I think it would be fair to say a character change appeared to have taken place.
  10. Wasn’t the last Colts game the one where he dropped what would’ve been a long TD down the sideline?
  11. Which one of Trump’s trusted advisors in 2016 was an extreme far right conservative who embarrassed him by nominating another candidate at the RNC? I’m not claiming it didn’t happen, I just don’t recall it.
  12. What’s the “conspiracy”? That those on the far left intend to push their extreme agenda on a susceptible moderate left president who doesn’t have the mental acumen to realize what’s happening? More of a likelihood than a conspiracy. One of Biden’s own advisors already had the balls to nominate Bernie Sanders for President at the DNC of all places.
  13. Sorry, I don’t fully understand that question.
  14. Not really. They’re supporting Biden, while reassuring their far left base that they haven’t lost sight of the end game.
  15. Bernie was too obvious and had no chance to win. Biden actually has a shot to win and be controlled, or at least heavily influenced, by the extreme far left. He’s already being advised by people like AOC, who continued to support Bernie Sanders for President at the DNC.
  16. Well, Biden is a lifelong professional politician. I agree he isn’t very polished anymore, but he thinks he is, and tries to appear so, and that’s a really ugly combination. He tries to pound his fist and hammer home the canned talking points, but literally forgets what he’s talking about and loses his train of thought midway. I honestly feel bad for him tbh. Politics aside, it’s always sad witnessing an elder lose their mental acumen, never mind in front of a brutal national audience. I believe Joe Biden is probably a good guy at heart, and probably a better person than Donald Trump. I simply don’t trust his ability to think clearly for himself anymore and fear the increasingly influential extreme left is going to be pulling the strings. I’m a registered independent, and while I can get on board with some Democratic beliefs/policies, I strongly disagree with the beliefs/policies of the extreme left puppeteers. I’m not a Trump “fan”, but if forced to choose between a moderate conservative and a puppet for the extreme liberals, I choose the conservative.
  17. The fact that your reply begins with “This is absolutely insane” exemplifies the increasingly intolerant liberal agenda. Anyone who disagrees with me is insane!!!!!
  18. Agreed. Trump isn’t a polished politician and that’s what a lot of people like about him. He does say dumb things sometimes, but that’s part of what makes him relatable. We all say dumb things sometimes, especially when speaking freely which Trump does probably more than any president we’ve ever had. People like that. People prefer that over being spoken to in platitudes and canned politician-speak. As long as his supporters understand what he really means to say, or the policies at the root of the statements, the poorly worded comments are easily forgiven. The “gotcha” stuff from the left every time Trump misspeaks is very transparent and childish to most conservatives. That said, most conservatives also understand sometimes Trump just says/tweets really dumb, classless things and wish he’d resist the urge to do so. Contrast that with Biden. He’s a lifelong politician, more polished than Trump, well versed in platitudes and politician-speak. Never seems to be speaking from the heart, when he speaks at all. And when he does speak, he gets tripped up on his own prepared talking points. Politicians like Joe Biden are a large part of what got Trump elected in 2016. Obviously, many Americans prefer Trumps approach, warts and all, to that of a typical lifetime politician like Biden. Ideally, I think most Americans would prefer something in the middle.
  19. I’d say the party that chose not to address it at their National Convention. Silence is violence, right?
  20. Lots of ambiguity and discretion there. But let’s suppose the officers do back up to readdress things. Then what? Blake sits in his car and thinks about it for a minute, then slowly climbs out with his hands up and is peacefully arrested? Blake gets in his car and simply drives away? Blake grabs a gun and starts firing at the officers, leading to a gunfight with children in the car behind him?
  21. Jacob Blake was armed with a knife and had engaged in a violent struggle with officers moments before he was shot. https://www.google.com/amp/s/nypost.com/2020/08/29/kenosha-cops-say-jacob-blake-was-holding-knife-contradicting-ag/amp/
  22. Actually, that answers none of my questions. It’s simply a link to another incident that people have more questions about. I’m asking you for answers, not more questions. Do you truly want police reform or not? I’m asking how you think officers should proceed going forward. How many shots are ok, and in which specific situations? How exactly do you arrive at that number? Does that number change depending on the situation? How much time do you expect officers to spend calculating the number of shots they’re allowed to fire during these situations? How many seconds should officers be required to wait in between shots to see how the perp reacts? And at exactly what point does an officer know his life is 100% in danger? Must an officer wait until he has a gun pointed directly at him? what about a knife? If an officer is being attacked with a knife does that justify deadly force? How close does the knife have to be to his heart before he can shoot? How many shots? What if an officer is getting beaten with a brick? Does the officer have to wait until the perp sitting on his chest raises the brick over his skull? You, and those who share your opinion must have answers to the endless list of questions like these, time to hear the answers.
  23. And again I ask, how many shots would’ve been ok? How exactly do you arrive at that number? Does that number change depending on the situation? How much time do you expect officers to spend calculating the number of shots they’re allowed to fire during these situations? How many seconds should officers be required to wait in between shots to see how the perp reacts? And at exactly what point does an officer know his life is 100% in danger? Must an officer wait until he has a gun pointed directly at him? what about a knife? If an officer is being attacked with a knife does that justify deadly force? How close does the knife have to be to his heart before he can shoot? How many shots? What if an officer is getting beaten with a brick? Does the officer have to wait until the perp sitting on his chest raises the brick over his skull? You, and those who share your opinion must have answers to the endless list of questions like these, so let’s hear the answers.
  24. I’m trying to understand which point you’re trying to make. What part of Shesky’s job are you claiming he did not do correctly? He and his partner tried to wrestle Blake to the ground. They tried tasing him. Neither was effective. At any point Blake could’ve simply given up, but he refused. It wasn’t until Blake, a violent criminal armed with a knife, entered a car with children, that Shesky finally felt compelled to fire his weapon. And what’s with the “7 shots” argument? Six would’ve been fine? 5? 4? 3? If Sheskey shot Blake once would you be okay with it? What if that one shot did nothing more than provoke Blake to turn around and slice Sheskeys’s throat? Jacob Blake is to blame for what happened, not Sheskey. Sheskey may have saved those children’s lives that day. Who knows what would’ve happened if the police allowed Blake to drive off in the car with them. Those children deserve a better father, there can be no question about that. Stop making excuses for violent criminals and start holding them accountable for their actions. The police were called there for a reason. They tried to detain Blake using as little force as necessary. He resisted, and continued to resist, until he eventually put Sheskey in a position where he felt either his own life, or someone else’s life was in imminent danger, perhaps even Blake’s own children. How exactly do you think police should respond to situations like this? Officers are called to a scene. A guy with a violent criminal record armed with a knife resists arrest. The officers should just say, okay, I guess he doesn’t want to be arrested, and simply let the guy walk away, steal a vehicle with children in it, and wave as they watch him drive away?
  25. It’s not the kids fault for eating the dishwasher tabs. It’s the dishwasher tabs fault for poisoning the kid!
