Springsteen is indeed at least twenty times better than Bono.
I'm glad the penetrating intellect of one Peter King, Sage Observer, has a big platform from which to inform us that, yes, an era, where hundreds of thousands of Americans killed each other, and hundreds of thousands were disfigured, dismembered, or otherwise maimed, in a few short years, in a sea of blood and gore that can barely be imagined, and entire cities were deliberately burned to the ground, as the end result of a dispute as to whether human beings could legitimately be accorded the moral status of cattle, was one where rancor and intractability in Washington was worse than is now the case.
Next week, he'll be more football-focused, and inform us that Peyton Manning behind center increases a team's chances of winning more than Christian Ponder taking snaps. In the travel notes feature, he'll save countless business travelers from unplesantness by telling us that the Ritz Carlton is a nicer place to stay than a Red Roof Inn at the end of the freeway ramp.
Also, did you know that touchdowns are worth more than field goals?
There was this awesome website last year that listed out all playoff possibilities for all teams for the rest of the season. It had things like if X,Y, and Z all tie at 10-6, Y wins the tiebreakers. I cannot find it.
Does anyone know what I am talking about and have a link?
Many thanks if you do.
Thank you kindly.
FoitbLl Outsiders poster Travis has website cLleld Quirky Research with all the sceanrions laid out.
That was the one, thanks!
So the "Things I like" and "Things I didn't like" comments about Kirk Cousins were pretty illogical. He liked a play where Cousins threw an accurate deep ball for a touchdown, and disliked his interception into traffic, claiming that he shouldn't take such chances. However if you watch the plays, both of these throws are into double coverage. One of them is accurate, and that combined with the Browns defensive backs misplaying it results in a long touchdown. The other looks pretty accurate, but is tipped by a Browns defender and intercepted. Cousins' part of these plays is the same really. You can't say one is a good decision and the other is awful.
I didn't watch the game, but it sounds like you're saying the "bad decision" that was picked off was more of a physical mistake than a mental one.
Sounds the same as:
"Coach A was smart to go for it on 4th down, it kept the other offense off the field and increased their chances of winning."
"Coach B was stupid was dumb to go for it on 4th down, because they didn't make it and gave the other team a shorter field."
The Vikings need offensive line help, while the Bears, Lions, and Packers have significant defensive concerns.
