re: NFL players whose college careers are overrated simply because of their pro career - Cfrobel
This right here, before Vick opened the door players with his skill set mostly just ended up being used in run heavy offenses. Suddenly a QB with the legs to run an option offense had a cannon for a arm....

re: Home Buying Negotiations between Buyer/Seller - Cfrobel
No, but I am sure they don't expect to get 20k off. It's a negotiation and if they end up not negotiating in good faith then the seller should walk....

re: How accurate are the WW2 docs on Netflix? - Cfrobel
Yep, too many people look at the doubling of panzer divisions for Barbarossa as if every division had the exact same quantity and quality of tanks, trucks, artillery, etc. But ultimately it made sense to stretch the military and obsolete equipment to it's absolute limit when the campaign was only...

re: Home Buying Negotiations between Buyer/Seller - Cfrobel
Except unless the next offer has no contingencies they will have the same problem again. When a listing goes from pending to back on the market some buyers may wonder if something is wrong and there is no guarantee they will get another offer at over ask....

[quote]The German forces brought 600,000 motor vehicles and 600,000 horses into Russia for the invasion. Problem was that many motor vehicles were more fit to travel on European roads than Russian dirt roads. When the mud set in, these Euro-vehicles rolling on rubber tires were useless[/quote] Th...

I believe poor weather in May was responsible for the delay. The campaign in Greece just meant the 2nd and 5th Panzer divisions weren't available until October....

re: How accurate are the WW2 docs on Netflix? - Cfrobel
Except the closest verifiable settlement in German control was about 20 miles away from the city center and for all the offensive capability left in Army Group Center it might as well been 1,000 miles away....

re: How accurate are the WW2 docs on Netflix? - Cfrobel
It was more than just the far east units, the Ostheer had no offensive capability left as they pressed on into late November early December. Any progress they made at this point was due to Zhukov holding back divisions in reserve for the planned counteroffensive. I get why they made the decision...

re: California is drifting into a new kind of feudalism - Cfrobel
When I lived in the Bay Area the only lower and middle class families that seemed to be living well (and far better than many upper middle class who recently relocated) were those that had their houses handed down from parents inheriting their Prop 13 property tax assessment. It really is amazing to...

re: Greater Evil, Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia - Cfrobel
The real reason is the UK cannot stand the idea of a continental power becoming too strong. They nearly drove their economy to ruin financing coalition after coalition to defeat Napoleon and made a deal with the devil to defeat Hitler. The idea that in 1941 anyone in the west cared about the pl...

re: Greater Evil, Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia - Cfrobel
Well that's basically what happened during the Soviet counter offensive in December, Army Group Center was basically in a rout until the Red Army over stretched. But you are correct winter quarters were impossible after the disasterous decision to press Typhoon forward at the Orsha conference on...

They had no intention of encircling Stalingrad, Army Group B did not have the ability to cross and support troop in combat operations across the Volga. The intention was to take the city, anchor their flank and interdict the river....
