re: It's a cold day in hell. I'm listening to Eric Holder and in agreement - Mephistopheles
My car thermometer is reading 32f here in ft worth and the little red buttons at the local sonic have become unusable due to ice. Therefore I'm inclined to agree with the title of this thread. ...

re: NFL cap room numbers - Mephistopheles
Loomis took chances on several big contracts which had to be reworked later on by design. unfortunately neither Byrd or Galette is proving worth it so far (although Byrd has an excuse), but if neither is able to perform at the level their contract suggests its a real problem because they're that muc...

re: I'm putting 1k on Tampa Bay to win the Superbowl, am I crazy? UPDATE: Bet placed - Mephistopheles
[quote]Hey, but in a ll seriousness, if you are going to lay down that much money, go and shop for the best line. Sportsbook.ag has Tampa getting 200/1. That was just the first I checked. Even though a lot of people in this thread can't comprehend it, its all about the line. Perhaps its crazy at 125...

re: What can be done to make convicted criminals more hire able? - Mephistopheles
[quote]There are some criminals who just bad people, and they're going to be criminals no matter what, but there are many many others who aren't like that at all. It really is a vicious cycle for someone after they get out of jail. They often have no money and nowhere to go, they want to work yet ...

re: Today's the Day! . . . So if SCOTUS undercuts Obamacare, then what? - Mephistopheles
Honestly I wonder if the republicans aren't praying for the ACA to be upheld with no changes. It gives them something to aim at next time around. If the govt loses, the probable outcome (IMO, from what I've read) is that red states lose subsidy either immediately or next year. Blue states ar...

re: Kevin White or Amari Cooper? - Mephistopheles
I hereby give notice of my intention to withdraw from this thread, whilst taking back all comments I have made :banghead: ETA: I looked up the stats on ESPN a while back and saw his 3 cone and a few others and was like damn, I guess Kiffin just did a great job getting him into space. In re...

re: Kevin White or Amari Cooper? - Mephistopheles
See above http://espn.go.com/nfl/draft/combine/_/id/1/sort/cones Ok so ESPN has his 3 cone at 7.23 which is almost bottom of receivers, CBS has it as 6.71 slight difference... http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1984220/amari-cooper ...

[quote] Wut? He was the top performer in the 3 cone and 20 yard shuttle, ran a 4.42 40 yard dash 33 inch vertical and 120 broad jump are nothing to sneeze at.[/quote] No he wasn't. He wasn't in the top 20 WRs in the combine for 3 cone, never mind the top performer of all player. ETA : I'm...

[quote] Amari Cooper is still a physical freak. [/quote] Which attributes would you point to as evidence of that? Or is it more just the way he plays on the field. I thought his combine numbers were surprisingly poor. ETA: Poor based on how dominant he seemed at college....

re: Lesean McCoy traded to Bills for Kiko Alonso - Mephistopheles
[quote]Well they nailed it with Alonso.[/quote] Haha yeah I know, but hey, that's my philosophy for them. The only reason this trade could ever possibly happen is that McCoy is a running back. If it were a 26 year old 2 time all pro WR this would be unthinkable. I think McCoy will be a solid 1...

re: Kevin White or Amari Cooper? - Mephistopheles
I'm a niners fan, and I say Cooper. You don't beat the Seahawks DB by being bigger or stronger than them. That's a recipe to get a WR molly whopped up and down the field. You beat them by doing the other stuff well, running routes, quick turns, having good hands, the stuff that's harder to measur...

re: Lesean McCoy traded to Bills for Kiko Alonso - Mephistopheles
I love this trade for the Eagles. I think they probably lost on a pure value standpoint, but I still think that it represents a big move forward for them, here's why. It's gonna free up like 5-8m cap space for the next few years. They're probably gonna take a 2nd round RB, pick up a FA RB, and inves...

re: Today's the Day! . . . So if SCOTUS undercuts Obamacare, then what? - Mephistopheles
Forgive my ignorance, but what is the 'harm' that they suffered? Is it the penalties or the fact that insurance premiums/plans changed and went up or down or away? I've followed the story relatively closely, but I get the impression most of the journalists covering it don't even come close to und...

Why do Republicans hate America? They keep criticizing it's president, sometimes even going as far as to yell "you lie" during a formal speech. The Republican Party's war on America, circa 2008....
