@Payton So you are saying you would rather have Boern Werner over TRich? How about the 4 years of Jerry Hughes over TRich? In the context of zero patience which is where you reside, I would say they are a wash, so who cares?
TRich will slowly ramp up and excel - He will be performing at a high level for the Colts 3 years from now. That is worth a first round pick.

@hankster @CoverZero There is much discussion about income inequality, but no consensus for trends in either direction or how to narrow the gap. What is most certain is routing money through Washington DC and expecting it will not be shamelessly diluted or diverted is almost charming.

As a Hoosier in the USA, I felt compelled to respond.
Aren’t you revealing just a bit of insecurity? I saw no mention of a
monopoly on freedom. I saw the word free, but not “freest”.
You had me slightly engaged until lack of social mobility was mentioned. Do
you mean economic class mobility? Tell you what, why don't we truck a few million
folks from south of the border up to Canadia and drop them off to see what
happens to your mobility. I thought Canadians where all about peace, love and
save the world. In twelve months time with some planes, boats, and some money
from some U2 freedom concerts, you could rescue 10-15 million families from
around the globe and let them enjoy the wonderfulness of Canadia. Start with
Syria which is a mess right now, no doubt a result of OUR policies and not the
500 mil+ dollars stolen by the Arafat estate. The more we head in the direction
of a bourgeoning government bureaucracy which is promoted by the liberals in
the USA you seem to align with, the worse our situation gets and the LESS
mobility we have.
If by social mobility you mean economic mobility I beg to differ. I live
near one of the few bodies of water in the Indy area and there are countless
folks who started out in 2 bedroom apartments and now live in 4000 sq ft+ quasi
mansions with incomes to support a lifestyle equal to the estate. How about
some simple statistics regarding the subject - http://www.creators.com/opinion/walter-williams/income-mobility.html
I have enjoyed many a weekend afternoon away from my 1400 sq ft of simple
home to enjoy the hospitality of many of these people in their beautiful homes.
So much for social mobility if that’s what you meant. By the way, jazz consumed
in any that can be construed as frequent or high quantity is for the pretentious
and social wannabe’s who never quite make it. You know, like Diane from the TV
The high incarceration rates are a result of both our freedom as we move
towards a larger and larger welfare
system. It is a tough problem, but you
have to admit, Canada only has the population of California alone. I know you
are talking rates, but creating opportunity and reversing decades of failed
policies and government largess that encouraged millions to be idle for 10x the
population of Canada is a bit of a challenge.
I find it very odd that some from Canada like to take pot shots at the USA
and seem a bit on edge about our situation. Are you feeling somehow insecure?
Why not just enjoy the recent (two and a half decades) resurgence in your good
fortune which is due in most part to your ability to control your borders and
therefore your natural resources per capita. Kudo's to Canadia. I just don't
understand why you feel compelled to criticize others.
Equally confusing is the inclination of many Canadians critical of the USA
to favor the leftists in our country even as they point to their economic
success. Beyond any social issues, the economic policies of the left in the USA
have encouraged and call for increasing government red tape and costs which is
strangling our ability to generate the wealth that solves so many social ills.
Kudo’s to Canadians for reducing government spending per GDP over the past
twenty years to take full advantage of your wealth from natural resources. But then
why align yourselves intellectually with our left? Could it be that you WANT us
Excepting the national defense questions, the social “issues” of the right
would have minimal impact on individuals or society in general. The right or
Republicans could control all three legislative branches and there would not be
an explosion in crosses burning in yards, beatings of gays, and yes, abortion
will never be outlawed. It’s just not gonna happen. As for national defense,
there is a very vocal and principled contingent on the right that has had
enough of interventions overseas. As demonstrated by history, the USA left
speaks peace, but sends troops (in the name of peace of course). Maybe your
insecurity stems from the un-provable, but compelling notion that your ability
to be so peaceful as a nation over the past 100 years, is in great part because
you have enjoyed the defacto protection from your proximity to the vicious USA.
Oh, and if you think the CSIS does not snoop domestically you confuse me
even more. I always thought ignorance was bliss, and again you wouldn't feel
the need to be so externally focused.

@bradicus18 my first wife used criticize our vacations for weeks before we even stepped on a plane. Took the fun all out of it. Questioning ithe move seems ok at this point, but total slams seem out of whack until a few games are played.

How convenient for those arguing that Satele is an awful center to ignore his nagging injury last year. His performance last year was bad, however with full health he will contribute all we need him too and we get a draft pick. Smart move Grig's.
@SGV This is how SGV sounds when he pronounces Gosder's name.

1 year, 1 month ago on Anthony Castonzo: Still the right pick
Please don't take offense, but I did not read past the opening paragraph. Trolls are boring, reaction to them is therefore boring, and crossbows do not kill trolls - nothing kills trolls and the sickness that causes their desperate need for attention - ignoring them destroys their power which is the best outcome possible.

WTF - he bump/grabs Avery 20 yards down the field on that long miss. That's what prevented Avery from catching that.

@Music Man I'm right with you now. After seeing RG3's game and how he gained his rythm with all those short dumps, I was ticked that we didn't take the same approach. Then I calmed down and realized that we do not have the same team, AND to your point it is best to let Luck develop with his game and talents. I guess it is analogous to changing a throwing motion - it often messes the athlete up more than it helps. Better to let him do his thing and build the team around him.

@Coltsheadben @Nate Dunlevy @MarcusDugan That was funny enough for me/
Thanks, this will be fun to watch.
Because of the comparisons, I feel compelled to point out that a few of RG3's passes were thrown high enough that the reciever had to really sky to catch them and given RG3's velocity they seemed to have stick'm on their hands. This includes the short dump over the middle to Garcon that went for an 88 yrd td.
Also, I have seen no mention on the boards of the 8 yard contact and then hold on Reggie in the endzone that resulted in the interception. The announcers picked up on it sort of with the "I'm sure Reggie will say he was held" comment, but that's about it. RG3 (who played a lights out game) threw a flier into the endzone and got an interference call that sure seemed like a good defensive play to me. Of course I just sit on my fat behind and watch, so........

@silentkmantab @paulcareyjr The arm strength question was not remotely answered by Sunday's games. RG3 did not throw any amazing long passes so Bayless is still speculating. RG3 throws a ball with more zip but Luck is more than adequate.
1 year, 5 months ago on Regular Season Week 1, Quick Recap: Colts 21 at Bears 41 | September
By the way, is anyone else bothered by the NFL advertising campaign with the bearded blue suit guy with the lisp? I know it is just supposed to be over the top goofiness, but at times it almost seems to demean being an NFL fan. For one thing, why do I need to be told that the NFL is fun? It is sort of like declaring that someone is funny. That doesn't need to be, and shouldn't be declared. People decide that on their own.
The play calling was not correct for the situation. There should have been a healthy dose of designed multiple short dump offs, bubble screens, or similar to help the young man gain some rhythm and confidence. Or, maybe that is what did occur, but the execution was so bad it wasn't apparent.
Kudos to the Bears Defense. Booos to the refs for the no call for the contact at 8 yards and the holding around the waist on Reggie in the end zone pick. Bigger boooos to the tv heads for not making a bigger deal out of it. "Tim Jennings to a risk"? that' it? Given the ability of the Bears to do what they wanted, this or any other complaints likely wouldn't have changed the outcome, however at that moment it would have changed the complexion of the game.
It will be fun to watch the growth and improvement of this team, and see who emerges as talent to be key parts of the monster. Yeah, the monster - it is just going to take some time. See you in the 600's on Sunday.
@cinesimonj Seriously, you continue to read anything to completion even if it senseless trash? How is that a an efficient use of your brain? Garbage in, and in your case, it appears garbage stays.

@Muddy Mudskipper Well of course, but that is not the story at hand. Doping is rampant in this sport so to not dope is to place yourself virtually out of the sport.
Let me get this straight - The USADA did not catch any doping after 100's of tests on Armstrong and a result claims that their testing methods are not going to catch every incidence and that others who have admitted to doping also did not test positive.
So as a competitor, you can pretty much count on the fact that anyone in the sport is doping. Wouldn't you be stupid NOT to dope to compete? The should shut the sport down until the can reliably test. Right now it is a joke.
