  1. Yep, you can tell he’s a class act, got it together. When you are picking this high in the draft this certainly is something you look for.
  2. Sending prayers your way Gritz! That’s a deep unexpected loss, my heart breaks for you buddy.
  3. Another thing is both Fowler and Beasley had a 1 year chance to “show me what you got”, with Fowler feeling good enough about his ability he was willing to sign just a 1 year contract last year. Beasley did what he always did....inconsistent and just flashed, where Fowler outplayed him all season.
  4. Bottom line is Fowler is a more complete player, more productive and way more consistent. I was tired of Beasley disappearing for long periods of time. Beasley got 6.5 of his 8.5 2019 sacks in his last 8 games and just 11.5 in his preceding 38 games. Here are their 2019 stats Fowler- 16 games, 880 Snaps, 11.5 sacks, 16 TFL, 16 QB Hits, 58 tackles (40 solo) Beasley- 16 games, 757 Snaps, 8.5 sacks, 8 TFL, 12 QB Hits, 42 tackles (29 solo) Fowlers got more game in his pass rush, but his extra 10 lbs better strength does help him be much more effective against the run as well.
  5. He’s going to end up being worth every penny we paid him. Swapping him for Beasley is pure gold for our defense.
  6. I’d be quite surprised if he didn’t pass his physical after watching how well he played all throughout 2019 including right up to his last game. I have arthritis in my upper back spine from an injury I had 45 years ago and it’s hardly any worse now than it was 20 years ago due to me being extremely active and working out, being in excellent shape consistently for the last 45 years. The physicians told me this is why the arthritis hasn’t gotten much worse. I am not limited in anything at all. I realize my situation is quite different than Gurleys. I just don’t see Gurley running like a quarter horse in December suddenly needing a wheelchair to get around a few months later due to arthritis creep.
  7. I’m almost done with them, I will share once finished
  8. That’s the million dollar (or 17th pick) question for me.
  9. An All Pro safety can change a defense. But an All Pro level, intelligent, big play safety who can make game changing plays, who can do it all in run and passing defense, create a lot of turnovers, cover TEs, knock heads in the box, quickly shut down holes, sure tackler, is absolutely worth a mid 1st rounded. I would agree a “good” safety is not something I would want to burn a mid first round pick on.
  10. Check this out, the New York Times is now reporting on the success of hydroxychloroquine. We now have a successful randomized trial. It’s they said it was administered prior to onset of severe symptoms. This is what I’ve been reading from many other sources. Cough, fever and pneumonia went away faster, and the disease seemed less likely to turn severe in people who received hydroxychloroquine than in a comparison group not given the drug. The authors of the report said that the medication was promising, but that more research was needed to clarify how it might work in treating coronavirus disease and to determine the best way to use it. “It’s going to send a ripple of excitement out through the treating community,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University. The study was small and limited to patients who were mildly or moderately ill, not severe cases. Like many reports about the coronavirus, it was posted at medRxiv, an online server for medical articles, before undergoing peer review by other researchers. But the findings strongly support earlier studies suggesting a role for the drug, Dr. Schaffner said. “I think it will reinforce the inclination of many people across the country who are not in a position to enter their patients into clinical trials but have already begun using hydroxychloroquine,” he said.
  11. Ki46dinah, I’ve been hearing good things about the Remdesivir as well, other countries have had a lot of success with it. I knew they were using it here in the States on some level, whether it was experimental, compassionate etc. I don’t think the FDA has approved it yet as they have the Chloroquine have they? We were using chloroquine and azithromycin prior to FDA approval as well. The chloroquine has actually undergone a controlled, peer reviewed clinical trail in France, just not here in the States yet. My understanding is chloroquine by itself is nowhere near as effective as chloroquine AND azithromycin. Also, this protocol is most effective if given to patients prior to acute symptoms, prior to hospitalization. You ha e to hit them as soon as flu like symptoms or shortness of breath besets them. Once the onset of acute symptoms hit my understanding is it’s results are negligible from anecdotal evidence. Im curious as to how you are using the Remdesivir. Since you are in a hospital setting, I assume your experience with it is it’s shown promise once a patient has been hospitalized with acute symptoms.
  12. The economists I heard talking on this issue were saying some parts of the economy, many critical parts of the supply chain, cannot hold off much longer. They used an example of a tree farm start up. For the first few years you have to grow the trees, so upon starting the business you have no product for a few years. Then, each year after you start selling your first harvest, you plant new ones to replace those sold to keep the pipeline filled for each year. In the United States, we have many businesses going bankrupt or losing senior management and critical employees even as we speak. These type of businesses don’t just open back up September first and start cranking at full production. Many will be closed for good, others will take months or years to get back to full production. If they are producing certain materials in a supply chain of certain industries, has a domino effect all the way to the finish line. In other words, there are some critical parts of our supply chain for economic sustainability in the areas of agriculture, technology, Medicaid etc that have long start back up up periods to get back to full production if they had to shut down for too,long, and these guys were saying while the economic engine and production of the US can sustain a shutdown lasting through end of April for sure, perhaps another week or two after that, there is a point where many of the underlying things needed start to collapse, which impacts the entire spunky chain of economic sustainability. The entire economy can implode to a point of no return at a certain point, thrusting the country into a long term depression. That was their argument, and these guys weren’t partisan hacks. It was an excellent interview and I could tell they weren’t pushing narrative.
  13. I’m thoroughly enjoying this conversation thread with you and others here. I can tell irrespective of one’s politics, everyone is sincere and open minded. My hope is this may be indicative of how things might shake out in the country on a larger level. IOWs, the epidemic may help mitigate some of the polarization in the country. Here is the link to the scientific study, let me know your thoughts . According to the study six of every seven coronavirus cases – 86% – of the people were walking around and driving the spread of the deadly virus. Another good case study we have is the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship where they were afloat for over two weeks before they knew the virus had been spreading around like wildfire on it. They were then quarantined another 2 weeks on the boat together. It ended up, half the people who tested positive for the virus were asymptomatic, and that cruise was mostly older Asian couples. There were a few hundred Americans on board I believe, but mostly older Asians.
  14. Wow, look what I just dug up! In its approval letter for the use of hydroxychloroquine Sunday evening, the FDA wrote that ”based on the totality of scientific evidence available to FDA, it is reasonable to believe that chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate may be effective in treating COVID-19.” BOOM media still is saying today no evidence
