    Yup. This is the problem with hanging on to every word that is said from anyone within the organization. Fans read way too much into things.

    The rule was changed a few years back. Now you can cut players and designate them as a June 1st cut without waiting till June 1st.

    This isn't calling Sharpe out. This is laying out the expectation and what they want to see. Big difference.

    Murray is old in RB years and has a lot of carries. Henry should be improved in year two in the passing game. It's real simple, you feature Murray and try and reduce garbage time carries and if he slows down you give Henry more carries or even feature him.
    It's not complicated.

    No doubt and I agree.
    However, Mularkey also doesn't need to immediately insert Murray after just returning from the locker room with a toe injury when we are up by 4 scores. That move was jaw dropping.

    He's the most overrated president of my lifetime. Republicans love to suck them some Reagan dick.

    Suppoedly there are close/enough votes to over-ride a veto on it.

    This is what's interesting.  He said he'd deport all the Mexicans, and you still have people saying OMG I thought you meant those other Mexicans not my husband!
    As a study in human fallibility it's amazing.

    Hillary didn't lose because rural white women voted with their husbands, she lost because too many urban voters didn't see a difference btw her and Trump.  She tried to pull off the Rainbow Coalition with a Morning in America convention.
    Who candidates are doesn't actually matter that much.  Elections are won and lost on propaganda.  DNC owned email with Obama but got beat on Facebook in 2016.

    Listen dummy, you are already paying for the uninsured because ERs can't check with a person's insurance before providing treatment.
    The only question is whether the government pays this cost as an entitlement or if you pay it as the cost of insurance out of your paycheck.

    This absolves the idiotic american voter. You are falling into the same trap as others. If the issues truly mattered you don't vote against your interest which is exactly what millions like Chester did. It's a joke and they deserve to be called out on it. Once It was down to Clinton or Trump, there was only one decision for those who claim progressive and liberal values.

    You are smarter than this. Clinton obviously carries on the Obama climate initiative and vetos any attempt to repeal the ACA. Most important of all, she ensures the Supreme Court doesn't swing right for a generation or more.

    Sorry doesn't work that way Bernie bitch. You and more to the point, the idiots in swing states are to blame. You set aside your supposed progressive values because your feelings got hurt. I'll say it again. If you truly gave a shit about climate change, healthcare, the supreme court, etc... You hold your nose and vote Clinton. Blaming her shitty campaign is just you deflecting blame somewhere else because reality is too hard to deal with.

    We've established Chester doesn't understand the big picture. Lucky for him it wasn't cancer.

    There's an old economic paradigm in first year economics class called guns vs butter. If you use government funding to build guns, it will provide some economic stimulus, but those guns will be  produced by a manufacturer who will deliver them to the military and last a long time and will not generate any further economic growth. If you use the money otoh to produce butter, consumers will buy the butter but it will go through a chain, the farmer, the dairy, the trucker transporting the butter, the store that sells it... generating economic activity all along the chain and the consumer, who will probably also buy things to eat with the butter, will then consume it  and then the chain will start all over again.

    I think it is a legitimate concern that his ceiling isn't as high as maybe some of the others.  Having said that, i'll take production and instincts all day long over the underwear olympics.  Plenty of guys have come out of the combine and done great or busted and it had nothing to do with anything that happened at the combine.
    Jrob basically came out and said that the only thing you get (for him at least) from the combine is the medical stuff.  From everything i've read, the shoulders aren't a huge concern but who knows, that could change everything.  Back to Jrob though, he's much more concerned with film work and production.  Allen is a beast in both of those molds.  
    I would like him to be a little bigger/longer and I would like him to be a little stronger and I would love for him to be a little faster.  Having said that, this guy is going to be at worst a very solid 3-4 DE or 4-3 DT with great instincts.  He may never take over a game but I don't think you'll miss with him either.

    Allen's combine was underwhelming but the fact of the matter is that next to QB, a disruptive DT is the most important position on the field. If they think Allen fits that mold, you pull the trigger.

    My first watch of Jonathan Allen, I was all like IDK, he doesn't look like the most explosive guy I've ever seen.
    Going back and watching more.  The guy's instincts are off the charts.  He's not the biggest, fastest, or strongest but he's a damn good football player.  Right now Allen, Adams, Foster, Howard, Davis.  Take em' in that order and get me two of them in the first round and i'm a happy dude.

    Our pass rush disappeared too many times to be considered "very good" last year. It was okay most of the time. 
    I wasn't nearly as high on our defense last year as a lot of others were.

    It's not that the secondary "doesn't matter" it's just the pass rush matters more.
    DL had to play man coverage and blitz last year and also had to stack the box to stop the run. If the Titans could generate pressure with only 4 and stop the run with only 6 or 7 then it makes it easier for the defense all together. I think the Titans pass rush was solid, not "damn good".
