What do you think Cousins or Stafford home vs the Pats. Could be a shoot out? I've been stuck all week cant decide.

This_Makes_Me_Happy 2 points

I have the same dilemma, gonna roll with Stafford. I honestly don't see the Vikes burying the Bill's -- they'll get an early lead then slowly milk out the rest of the game clock.

Yeah, I can't believe he's getting blasted so much for a very neutral response that just about every other head coach would say. Though, his phrasing could've been better. If he said something more along the lines of "well, we get a long week and we'll go through practices and make the decision on which guy will start against the Raiders when the time comes." You definitely don't need to "watch the tape" when it's clear Baker is the primary reason they won tonight and he definitely knows that.

just about every other head coach would say

Context. No other head coach has lost that many games in a row.

Even more of a reason to not foolishly declare a new starter moments after a game.

You think starting Tyrod would not be foolish?

This just in. The entire state of Ohio has descended on Goodell's home and proceeded to throw empty cans of Bud Lite through his windows.

Hell no. They'd be DELIGHTED for that promo to run for another week.

Yup. They'd all get to go back for seconds after the first "real" win

I'm saying that the taping saves them because bmi would call them fat.

This_Makes_Me_Happy 1 point

He's saying they are all actually too fat, the tape is just to take away another one of their excuses.

DPlurker 1 point

I don't think so, he specifically said "failed taping". There are plenty of buff dudes in the military that would be overweight on bmi, but it's muscle.

This_Makes_Me_Happy 1 point

never met someone who failed taping due to too much muscle

The Browns as the best team?? I get the hype, they’re headed in the right direction. But it seems like a lot of people are forgetting this team lost 16 games last year.

Yeah, it never comes up. It's like it never happened.

I can’t recall a bigger instance of league observers crowning such a young and unproven player as a mortal lock to be historically great.

Jimmy Garopollo this entire off-season.

Teddy Bridgewater honestly came to mind too.

Yeah but y'all have a crazy accurate kicker now, there's no way those guys would ever fuck up for you.

Yeah, when Bailey breaks down, it'll be a playoff kick, not regular season.

While I don't disagree with most of your points, I'd like to offer a few counter arguments. That is not to say that any of these are mutually exclusive to local government; ideally both can exist together, devolving powers to the appropriate level.

Tackling global problems

There are issues we face as a planet that we can only effectively deal with as a planet. Getting your local government to limit antibiotic use is great but will not help the problem as long as a pig farm the other side of the world is pumping broad spectrum antibiotics into animals as a preventative. Climate change is another issue which we are failing to tackle because we don't have an effective global government. The hole in the ozone layer would not have been solved if countries around the world didn't come together to ban CFCs. Tax evasion and/or wealth inequality is another example, if your country raises taxes on corporations or millionaires, you will simply lose company headquarters and millionaires as they move to the next place that won't tax them. Again, a unified global approach is required.

Infrastructure

Things like long distance cabling, integrated transport networks such as railways or airspace, resource management to take things like potable water or energy from areas where it is abundant to areas that need it. This is all long term, large scale and expensive. These are the sort of projects best managed by a regional authority.

Grand endeavours

There are projects such as space travel, global mapping, funding scientific research. These are exceedingly expensive and generally funds are managed and allocated by the biggest organisations.

Treadwell certainly didn't play well @Lambeau, no ones denying that. Hopefully he can use this adversity to make a turnaround. I'm not holding my breath but I've not completely given up on him yet either.

This_Makes_Me_Happy -5 points

Oh, so he's shown you that he can compete at a high level then?

When? Exactly?

ralexh11 7 points

..HOPEFULLY HE CAN USE THIS ADVERSITY TO MAKE A TURNAROUND. I'M NOT HOLDING MY BREATH BUT...

I think you missed that part.

I say defensive holding/ illegal contact. Why an automatic 1st down. Give em 5 yds and replay down.

This_Makes_Me_Happy 5 points

Because then you'd intentionally mug the WR on every deep route that you got burned on.

It's the war on straight WASP (white Anglo-saxon protestant) cis, financially independent men! They're making it less fun to have all the money and power now! What am I gonna do when power structures in society no longer give me a fast track above everyone else, and create obstacles for minorities? What will I do?

PFF said we had the #1-graded special teams unit in the NFL last year.

He's our version of McCarthy: carried by talent, exposed when some of that talent is missing.

That was Morstead, our Punter. Both awesome guys.

This_Makes_Me_Happy 3 points

Yeah, I confused the two. Morstead also gave a bunch of money to a Minnesota charity after the game.

Your special teams actually ARE special.

disgustipated 237 points

It was Will Lutz, the Saints' kicker.

This_Makes_Me_Happy 124 points

He might be the classiest guy in the NFL

EDIT: I whoopsed and thought that this was Morstead. Lutz is still classy, but I think he comes in second to Morstead.

I’ll fist fight Carlson for the starting spot. PPV TV only, 50 yard line of US Bank.

You're kind of a dirt bag if you would punch a grown man who is crying.

Because yeah, he's probably still crying, and will be for a loooooong time.

Was a fan in the student section in high school. Definitely an easy kick.

This_Makes_Me_Happy 11 points

Dropped out of high school, call soccer "football" and this game "American football."

That was still an easy kick.

Definitely wasn't a BAD throw. It was actually an incredible throw. But it was very risky.

This_Makes_Me_Happy 6 points

We're just not used to good quarterbacks deliberately threading needles like that. Equal parts scary and exciting

notsurethepoint 3 points

Coming from watching Keenum and Teddy, I legit didn't know what to think on that throw.

This_Makes_Me_Happy 1 point

I was frightened and confused.

But I felt exactly how I was supposed to feel before field goals, so the universe is still balanced.

Don't let this distract you from the fact the Vikings had a home Superbowl dangling in front of them and had it snatched away by Nick Foles.

I right, I forget this is your Super Bowl. For us it's a game against our second biggest rival.

It was the second game of the season(?)

After watching you guys play the Bears, I think you guys are gonna make it as far in the postseason this year as you did last year.

Why wasn't Forbath out there? What we saw today was fucking pathetic. I'm so sick of losing games because of missed chip-shot field goals. That dumbfuck kid just ruined his NFL career in a single game. Way to go, asshole. He must be feeling just terrible about himself. I'd feel bad for him but I don't as it looked like he was purposefully missing those kicks.
