Was there anything legislated prior to or since 1986 that rivaled it in scope (for the purposes of this discussion, forget about ObamaCare)? I'm curious to hear from some of the MDs here...

[b]1. Did God create a moral code? [/b]
[b]2. Is morality simply a byproduct of natural law, in that behavior(s) that are generally considered to be moral are also generally adaptive?[/b]

What exactly it is that our defense is struggling with.
I don't pretend to be a football expert, but even I'm struck by what, at times, seems to be a defense that is confused (pre and post-snap), unable to take reasonable angles to the ball carrier, and that is outclassed in terms of offensive ...
