The woman drinks drinks water like a fish. Always has. She is into all of this health food, and unfortunately just about all of the healthy food and drinks that you can consume contribute to forming kidney stones. The doctor told us, basically just about everything you eat that is good for your heart can cause stones, and just about everything that isn't good for your heart won't. I was like...WTF???

My new truck broke down first thing Monday morning, and then dealing with assholes all week. Wife is having kidney stone issues again, so by about Wednesday, I crossed my threshold of taking any more shit from anyone. One of those weeks where its like everyday something costs me a $1,000. In perspective, it's all really just high-class problems. It could be worse.

Congratulations! My wife is my best friend. Remember, if you don't have trust, you don't have anything. If you don't trust each other 100%, it won't work. Best of luck to you, and I wish you both long and happy lives.

I can't find a picture of one, but I got one off of eBay earlier this year. It's black, with the block O and says, "We beat Bama #Roll tears roll." I love wearing down south.

That's the 3-2-6 that was driving everyone nuts. They actually started experimenting with the 3-3-5 towards the end of the year and they were having some pretty good success. They did show some base 3-4 looks occasionally. Bosa did pretty well at the Linebacker position.

Dude, the techniques simply depend on which way the defensive line lines up. They change when the line shifts to either an over or under position. We play a 4-3 over, the year before that we played a 4-3 under. The defensive line will shift constantly during the course of a game, technically switching their gap assinments. Again, it is not that complex. The only thing different is instead of asking the NT in 4-3 to either hit the A gap or take on the center. In a 3-4 you only asking the NT to just take on the center. That is less responsibility. The 3 and the 5 technique are no different, you either go right or you go left. You are doing the same things, it is just a matter of alignment. It is not rocket science. Your whole argument was that we didn't have a guy big enough to play the NT position in a 3-4 and I just proved that we do. Instead of asking Washington to hit either the center or the A gap, he simply hits the center. Our other defensive tackle position can handle playing the end position in a 3-4.

I guess I will have to refund you your money then for not originally putting Fickell in the post, since I am a professional writer and all. I can't be making those mistakes! It was a post meant for fun, not to be taken literally.

Why not? You said we didn't have the size up front, and we do. I only listed our two deep tackles because the NT position has the same assignment as a 3-4, and our three technique DT position has the same assignment as a DE Ina 3-4. The 3-4 defense is not as complex as you are making it out to be. I do appreciate the conversation. Thanks for posting. ;-)
