  1. That's an amazing outcome. I couldn't be happier for you and your family.
  2. He's the Kanye West of football.
  3. I'm not seeing a "defense" of Becton, merely people wondering what new information is triggering the latest anxiety. It seems there isn't any. Rather the opposite -- coaches saying theyre pleased with his progress. That can be dismissed, but it's not negative by any means.
  4. With all due respect, you really haven't added any new factual information to the discussion. You were worried before and youre still worried. Ok.
  5. Anyone who posts on a messageboard, even one as benign and community oriented as this one, is going to get annoyed by something. My two favorites are interlopers (usually from rival teams) who come here briefly just to stir up crap and make people angry or demoralized. Those are pretty easy to spot and dispense with. The other is the proverbial thread-killer. You know, the guy who comes into a thread about one topic and forces it to what he wants to talk about, usually of a negative spin, but sometimes just irrelevant, or some empty comedy schtick. Good thread goes down the tubes. I'm always prepared to take the bad with the overwhelming good here, but everything has room for improvement. It depends on some posters having just a tad more discipline and asking a simple question: "Am I contributing to this conversation or simply derailing it." Back to sharpening my rusty knife.
  6. All I want to know is -- are we still allowed to hunt down and kill verminous trolls with a rusty knife?
  7. Not sure how this thread is any different than the hundred previous ones on whether Zach will be good or bad. I get the anxious perseveration of some posters in the absence of actual play, but I think we just have to have patience and see how the team comes together and how Zach develops. Once the OL anchors itself and gels (we've got one new vet and two young players learning new positions) the offense will take a leap forward. Give it some time. And patience.
  8. Yeah, that must be it. I don't have any illusions about Zach Wilson at this point. But I can smell a troll a mile away. Your pungeant, sick sweat is a give away.
  9. At first I thought you were a Seahawks troll; but there's always the possibility you're a Bills or Pats guy. You're most definitely NOT a Jets fan.
  10. At least he didn't pick that prick, Martin Heidegger. Two stoics and a proponent of the collective unconscious. I can dig that. Should have picked Epictetus. That guy was cool. The first cognitive behavioral psychologist.
  11. I wanted to live out the metaphor of Batman and the Pit. Seriously, came from MN to NY to college. Couldn't watch the Vikings anywhere. Liked Namath and the Jets and decided they were a good team to follow. The rest is history. Still like the Vikes too.
  12. Okay, if you say so. We got ourselves some whiners and babies here, but that's to be expected. I especially like the posters who sniff out any positive or optimistic post and try to crush as quickly as possible. But it's all good. Takes all kinds to make the world go round.
