  1. Because you kids are broken records with unoriginal points? All you guys do is ask people to prove negatives. It is pretty transparent but it lets you feel right. When faced with the overwhelming positives of his career, you delve into logical fallacies and I am starting to get the feeling most of you pocket GMs aren't even bright enough to see it. The fact is that he could be better, but he is in the upper tier of NFL QBs and is more than good enough to take this team where it needs to go. Interesting to see that you haven't posted much (under this account at least) until this year
  2. True. This was the worst he’s looked all season. However watching every minute of every game this year reveals that his turn overs are mostly a fluke. He needs to play better, but he’s not playing nearly as poorly as many on this forum are stating.
  3. Honestly, your memory is **** 50% of these examples. The Kamara hit was waist level til he went down. The ingrahm hit was shoulder to the body, just happened to be the lower rib cage. Tru has never been accused of being dirty and sadly hands to the face happens every game a dozen times without calls. Get over yourself man. The game was messy two ways, not just one. The saints 2nd TD was an illegal pick. You can make contact within a yard, as long as you run through the route. That was an illegal block and uncalled. **** goes both ways.
  4. Tonight. If you had been watching the rest of the year you would realize tonight was an off game for Ryan. Most of this year has been failure around him.
  5. Morons gonna moron. He’s not having a great year, but you stat geeks don’t seem to be watching the games. Every mistake he’s made has been compounded by 3 from guys around him.
  6. Well that's because your a troll and you don't have any, which doesn't seem to be OPs problem. Maybe you should go start another Matt Ryan thread before recess is over and you have to put away your phone?
  7. That Op-ed is enlightening. The prosecution chose brandishing as the underlying crime? I have no idea if being a felon in possession of a firearm is a proper underlying crime for manslaughter, but I do know that the brandishing charge was a reach given what I saw. In any event, if that op-ed is accurate, the prosecution let the people down here, not the jury... Also, thanks for posting the op-ed. Very informative.
  8. I don't get this contention. He was convicted of being a felon in possession of a handgun. As a result of his posession of said gun, whether intention or not, a human being died. California Penal Code Sec. 192(b) outlines Involuntary Manslaughter as: Manslaughter is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice. It is of three kinds: (a) Voluntary... (b) Involuntary—in the commission of an unlawful act, not amounting to a felony; or in the commission of a lawful act which might produce death, in an unlawful manner, or without due caution and circumspection. This subdiv
  9. Generally, you can't introduce evidence of prior bad acts to prove a defendant was likely to act similarly in the present case. There are limited uses for that type of evidence, but none really applied in this case.
  10. They both failed Katie. The prosecution shouldn't have pushed for Murder. They could never have proved intent without a witness. There was never enough evidence to convict and it was an over-reach. They did include the lesser charge of involuntary manslaughter, which the defense admitted to as part of their defense to the murder charge. They said he found the gun, picked it up, and it went off (initially the defendant said he shot at a seal not a person). California's involuntary manslaughter statue allows for conviction even when the death arises while committing a misdemeanor. Th
  11. You can tell the people who haven't been to a Falcon's home game this year by their complaints about empty seats. I wish the board would bring back negging.
  12. The only thing worse than signing Esq. is putting J.D. in your signature.
  13. Every stadium looks empty right after the half.
  14. In hindsight, this decision was a pretty big blunder.
  15. And then there are posters like this moron who only show up when we lose. Go play in traffic knob.
  16. That play lost me until Sark is gone. Guy is in over his head. Fire him before the plane gets back to ATL.
  17. I don't really ever overreact to this stuff, but this team looks awful and the playcalling is beyond pathetic. Running some cutsey trick play with 4th and half a yard to go? GTFO. The Ravens fired Cam Cameron and promoted Jim Caldwell during their 2012/13 Superbowl run. I don't know who on the Falcon's staff would replace Sark, but he needs to be gone, or I will find better things to do with my Sundays...
  18. The "early" results are that rookies need time to adjust. The results are the same for virtually every rookie, and therefore are not really results...
  19. LOL at trying to grade a draft based on 5 weeks of rookie performance.
  20. Maybe in the media, but the biggest morons in sports are the guys who listen to what Cowherd, Bayless, etc. say. Don't dignify it with your attention. You are literally getting them paid when you do.
  21. Pretty much my thoughts exactly. Was a great episode, but not a great finale. Good to know that Rick thinks he's autistic though...
  22. Most of the posters over there seem realistic. I did get a chuckle after the one guy tried to make fun of the super bowl loss, only to have numerous fans remind him of the Bills Super Bowl history.
  23. I saw the same thing on the Jumbotron. Looked like his foot dragged into the pylon making it not a catch. Everyone seemed to disagree so they probably didn't have enough to overturn. Oh well..., 2-0 and on to Detroit.
