The https://twitter.com/hashtag/Giants?src=hash will interview https://twitter.com/hashtag/Jaguars?src=hash assistant head coach Doug Marrone on Saturday, source said, a day after his https://twitter.com/hashtag/Dolphins?src=hash interview
Kind of surprising to me that Mara/Reese don’t appear to have a ‘favorite’ HC. You would think that they knew that this was going to happen several weeks ago and would already have a ‘short list’
Seahawks/Vikings game is going to be a cold one
“Via Chris Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the local forecast calls for a http://www.startribune.com/sundays-game-will-be-one-of-coldest-in-nfl-history/364295621/#1 at TCF Bank Stadium.”
Blackout Rule is likely done forever. This season, without the blackout rule NFL stadium attendance dropped .5% from 2014, with Tenn dropping 9.9% & St Louis dropping 8.1% (wonder why the Rams want to go to LA?). Interestingly enough attendance @ Cowboys Stadium rose 2.1% which I find a trifle odd. I guess other teams fans attended more maybe?
https://twitter.com/hashtag/Cowboys?src=hash WR Dez Bryant is in New York today having surgery on both his foot and ankle, per https://twitter.com/ronberk1. Neither will affect offseason programs
Buck Rogers is ahead of Schedule
Navy To Demo 150-kW Laser Weapon For Destroyers”
That’s 5x the power of the chemical laser deployed in the Persian Gulf (30kw on the USS Ponce) and maybe 3-5 years ahead of previous schedules. A 150kw laser can burn through a missile or plane’s skin in < 1 sec and can take out multiple targets very rapidly. The beauty of this system is it uses ship’s power without having to shut down the rest of the ship (which current lasers require due to power drain).
The Navy’s endgame is a 1 MW fiber laser that operates with Ship power and can burn through 5 feet of steel in <1 sec at ranges that are ‘classified’ but are known to be in excess of two miles.
This along with magnetic rail guns that don’t require either propellant or explosive warheads and have a range over 200 miles are ‘game changers’ for the Navy.
Fiversons No Spin Zone it’s a really cool looking rig, plus it takes up only as much deck space (and much less below decks space) as a Phalanx or SeaRAM launcher. Also costs like 2 cents per firing instead of 60,000+ per point defense missile for RAM and ESSM.
Norsar, a Norway-based group that monitors
nuclear tests, said Tuesday’s quake was comparable in strength with
readings from North Korea’s most recent plutonium test, in 2013.
estimated the yield of Tuesday’s blast to be less than 10 kilotons, or
10,000 tons of TNT, smaller than those of the atomic weapons used on
Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Wasn’t an H-Bomb, nice try NK
My favorite N. Korea story: Kim Whatever (supreme leader before this guy) loved riding horses. Anyway, one day he fell off and banged himself up pretty good. He was in constant pain and had to turn to painkillers to manage it. Made him drowsy, not as sharp, blah blah. He became afraid of both addiction and not being as aware of palace coups and plots and the like from his inner circle. Nutbag’s solution to all these problems? Everybody in the inner circle takes the same pain injections at the same time as the supreme leader!
Giants ranked 2. Eagles ranked 3.
Sidenote: I don’t remember Howie being at odds with Reid. Maybe I’m wrong.
Sounds like Adam Gase impressed in Philly. I’m told the https://twitter.com/hashtag/Eagles?src=hash plan to bring him back for a second interview this weekend.
22SnakePlissken5150 Propaganda measures there are hilarious. They’re a running joke in much of SE Asia. I remember reading a confiscated text book of theirs on display in Philippines teaching 4th graders math using word problems like “If you kill 5 American dogs out of etc. How many American dogs are left?”.
Sir Squatch penguinfarmer I saw one of their videos that they show to their public that would make them think that all of America is basically like the worst parts of Detroit and that North Korean Aid workers are in every American city providing health care and food. Literally claimed that we are all drug addicts who have to eat leather, tree bark, and snow and that we spend our spare time murdering each other with our guns.
Sir Squatch 22SnakePlissken5150 Fascinating read on a guy who grew up with lil’ Kim:
They also had ‘Sgt Rock’ type comics only the heros were North Koreans. We had one that the cover showed a Mig diving on an F-4 Phantom with cannons blazing and the pilot was screaming, “Eat DEATH, Lackey of capitalist, imperialist, war-mongering Bosses”.
Wee called each other ‘lackey’ for moths.
The https://twitter.com/hashtag/Eagles?src=hash will interview https://twitter.com/hashtag/Giants?src=hash OC Ben McAdoo tomorrow, source said. They won’t do interview today with Jeffrey Lurie in NYC.
This is interesting. https://twitter.com/hashtag/Cowboys?src=hash secondary coach Jerome Henderson will interview with the https://twitter.com/hashtag/Browns?src=hash
Cowboys DBs coach Jerome Henderson will interview for the Browns’ head-coaching vacancy.
The Browns have made two off-the-wall moves by giving ex-lawyer Sashi Brown control over the 53-man roster and hiring Paul DePodesta out of the MLB to be Brown’s right-hand man. They’re taking a full-on analytics approach, so they’ll leave no stone unturned. Henderson played eight years in the NFL as a second-round pick and has coached DBs for the Jets, Browns, and Cowboys the past nine seasons. He was in Cleveland from 2009-2011.
Getting the Rooney Rule requirement out of the way should Hue & Teryl stiff them
Ian Rapoport Retweeted ProFootballTalk
The fear is nerve damage, as well. Very serious surgery.

This is one reason why Lynch & Goff are coming out their junior year instead of staying for their senior year to ‘improve’ as QBs as McShay has suggested they do and further evidence that McShay is an idiot.
Underclassmen QBs who declared for 2016 draft, incl. Lynch and Goff, would’ve benefited from another yr in school. https://t.co/nL4efXkh4t
Still do not know how O-Line did not make this list
https://twitter.com/hashtag/Saints?src=hash plan for Sean Payton is 2-fold: Hope GM Mickey Loomis can convince him to stay. Or play interested teams off each other & drive up $
I guess I just have a dark heart… But I do t understand the sentiment and compassion for Johnny… If I were a Brown fan, I really couldn’t give a shit if r gets hit life on track… I would be pissed we wasted a first round draft pick on a complete moron… Fuck his real life, give me touch downs!
Ah, so showing up to practice drunk then going to Vegas during the week before your last game (even if you weren’t playing and knew it), wearing a disguise, calling yourself by a different name, drinking (after promising your Coach you wouldn’t), then, when you’re caught uploading fake geo data in an attempt to lie to your team about it, then skipping out on a medical meeting is all ‘grown adult doing grown adult things’?
Well this is back to back years he didn’t show up for before the last game of the season when he was supposed to. I don’t think the Browns care if he goes to Vegas but when he goes to Vegas and doesn’t show up for a mandatory meeting with the concussion specialist the rolling morning they have a reason to be mad.
Sir Squatch Bill_In_FL Well, that kinda sorts was because he swore to the club that he would stay in town during the bye week and wouldn’t drink & party, then, when he did and got caught doing so, then lied about it to his Team/Owner/Coach. I think he was punished more for that than ‘just going to a party during the bye week’.

and all of that after going to 10 weeks of rehab. The guy has a problem and it isn’t going to be fixed, he doesn’t want to change. Any team that signs him thinking he will is deluding themselves and throwing money down the drain. He will NEVER be an NFL caliber QB
Dongtavious Steelwang southy and the healthy scratch #InJayWeTrust Sir Squatch I generally think people have a responsibility to understand the transactions they are getting into. Unless they are being outright lied to.
Def agree on the taxation point though – never understood why capital gains are taxed at a lower rate than other gains.
Re: corporations, the easiest way to fix excess profits for big corporations is to buy stock in those corporations. Now you own those profits, hey.
Dongtavious Steelwang agree. but there is a gray area where just because some sleezeball shows up with a super low variable rate that’s going to balloon in 5 years time and tells you not to worry about it because housing prices always go up doesn’t mean it’s not your fault for believing him on your dime.
Calvin Johnson released a statement Wednesday confirming he is considering retiring from the NFL this offseason.”Like many players at this stage of their career, I am currently evaluating options for my future,” Johnson said. “I would expect to have a decision regarding this matter in the not-too-distant future.”
Megatron retiring has legs…..
Sean Payton will remain Saints coach.

“He wasn’t the Nick Saban who wants to be put on a
pedestal like he is at Alabama,’’ Crowder said of the image Saban
sought. “He had guys on the team who were like 35. He used to cringe
when players called him ‘Nick’ because he wanted to be called ‘coach
Saban.’ But guys who were making millions weren’t going to call him
that. … He would tell guys things like not to go to South Beach and
don’t drive after midnight. But you’re not going to tell guys who are 35
where they can go.’’
Bokamper, a former Pro Bowler who has been
involved with the Dolphins for more than three decades as a player and
broadcaster, agreed Saban didn’t have the right touch when it came to
dealing with NFL players.
“I don’t think his message got across
as much as it does on the college level,’’ Bokamper said. “He’s a great
college coach, but I think some of the veteran guys had some
resistance. He’s a controlling coach. He wanted guys to follow his
marching orders to some degree 24 hours a day.’’

Sacks 2014: Eagles 47 / Giants 47 / Skins 36 / Cowboys 28
I don’t think any team improved in this area more than the Cowboys.
All other things equal…Cowboys will be about second in Sacks with about 40.
There’s often a surprise firing. If the Packers lose at Washington on Sunday, what could happen next wouldn’t surprise me at all.

Kind of sad for Skins fans. Everyone knows Shanahan didn’t want to trade for RGIII. Snyder fucked him bad by forcing that trade. If the Skins stood pat they could have gotten Kuechly, Poe or Cox with their 1st pick in the 2012 and Jeffery or Wagner with the 2nd. They would also have had the next 2 years 1st round picks.
No, I just wNt to make sure he whines about the right person to KEAL. it is a source of never ending amusement that he runs crying to Keal after he blasted me for daring to do the same last year, although I just asked Keal if he was willing to change his rules to not allow references to people’s families. He said no, so I dropped it.
Family history. My Grand dad ran the books in Baltimore in the 30’s & 40’s. Irish Mafia. He said he’d come out of his grave if I ever played anything other than @ a Casino. House wins every other game for certain. He retired when Lucky Luciano paid him a visit in 1947. He said, “those guys are serious”
Firing their DC – one step forward
Hiring Davis – 3 steps back

U are clueless if you think I’m trying to get the site in trouble. I have not and will not ever say anything to anyone about this board until somebody starts deleting posts for no reason. He has made it clear that he thinks he can delete anything I post just because he doesn’t like it. Sorry but that doesn’t work with me.
Here are the lines at various sites as of 4:41 today
Fiversons No Spin Zone It couldn’t possibly have been this but i’m pretty sure we will find out who was deleting them later on tonight. I said before and I will say it again. I will never talk about this board to the West guys and Keal unless there is an asshole mod over here abusing his powers. [img]http://i.imgur.com/H0jDS06.png[/img]
