  1. He left the campaign trail - how is he prioritizing his presidential run? But how long does he need to be off the campaign trail really in order to adequately address this?
  2. That's probably what he really is.
  3. It's well known that the Shanahan/LaFleur/McVay offenses don't allow the QB much if any autonomy.
  4. I remember arguing with some folks several months ago about how Mularkey’s offense allowed Mariota more freedom and control at the LOS than LaFleur’s, and some posters were adamant to the contrary. Apologies if this had been posted elsewhere, but here’s some context on that. NFL.com's Michael Silver explored this subject in an article last week. "We're running a system I first picked up while working with Kyle (Shanahan) in Houston a decade ago, and we've never really had a quarterback who's had complete freedom to change plays at the line, because that's not really the way the offense is set up," the first-year head honcho explained. Rodgers, who had almost completely autonomy over the offense during Mike McCarthy's reign as head coach, has predictably scoffed at this notion. "It's a conversation in progress," said the two-time MVP while adding, "There aren't many people that can do at the line of scrimmage what I've done over the years." This will be an interesting standoff to follow throughout the summer and one that Rodgers, if he really digs in his heels, is likely to win.
  5. He’s been getting constant negative press since the moment he announced. If he can’t stop mis-speaking it’ll only get worse, these people are looking for any reason to take him down.
  6. There was plenty of cheering at points of the Biden speech. Biden also had by far the largest contingent of supporters of any candidate at the convention per multiple reports.
  7. Yeah either Putin or a political advisor. Putin being an ally of Iran no doubt plays a factor into this. Same thing in Venezuela. This is the consequence of having a president subject to a foreign power. Every time Putin says the US needs to back off, that’s what his lackey Trump does. The military and the security officials were advising a limited response. Edit: military advisors were split, but Haspel, Bolton, Pompeo favored response.
  8. Cancelling an in-progress mission that he had approved is fucking crazy.
  9. WASHINGTON — President Trump approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation for downing an American surveillance drone, but pulled back from launching them on Thursday night after a day of escalating tensions. As late as 7 p.m. Thursday, military and diplomatic officials were expecting a strike, after intense discussions and debate at the White House among the president’s top national security officials and congressional leaders, according to multiple senior administration officials involved in or briefed on the deliberations. Officials said the president had initially approved attacks on a handful of Iranian targets, like radar and missile batteries. The operation was underway in its early stages when it was called off, a senior administration official said. Planes were in the air and ships were in position, but no missiles had been fired when word came to stand down, the official said. Fucking ridiculous.
