  1. He had an interesting name... They typically don't even bother explaining these type of injuries...
  2. I except Honor to be a >10 sack guy most years moving forward. I would not be surprised if he sniffs 15 sacks in some years...
  3. Agreed. Now at the margins, maybe ~10% of what we import from China can be replaced by currently available alternatives (still a lot of legwork and churn required to substitute); however, expecting much more than that even with 25% tariffs is pretty unlikely. So the US consumers will be stuck with the 25% upcharge on ~90% of what we previously imported. Yes, China will lose those marginal volumes and probably some additional from demand destruction caused by the higher prices. A pretty solid lose/lose if large concessions are not extracted.
  4. What Trump fails to realize is that sourcing alternative supply for commercial and industrial goods is often a multi-year process even before the cascading local supply chain considerations. Much of what we import from China are not fungible commodities like soybeans or crude oil... Since there isn't global capacity to replace what we get from China, new facilities (in the US or elsewhere) will be required for much of our imports if companies decide they need to avoid the tariffs. Production plants that cost hundreds or millions or billions of dollars take ~2-5 years to build after a decision is made. Most companies are currently taking a wait and see approach hoping these tariffs blow over. In the meantime, we will continue to import mostly from China and the US consumers will pay the 25% increase for a net loss to all.
  5. Agreed. There is a huge difference between trading up to acquire a huge project vs getting one for the cost of a 90-man roster spot...
  6. The fact that many trump supporters think China pays for the tariffs is a testament to the strength of the reality bubble they exist within... Policies based upon fantasy will not end well...
  7. Yeah, it is sad to see the legends fade...
  8. AJ might not make the final 53...
  9. He would have traded up to 1 to pick him...
  10. My prediction: Our 1st round pick will weigh > 290lbs...
