That was my first question as well. Very distracting.
It was mentioned above about having Raekwon and Grant on the field at the same time, good thinking. It is definitely something they should try to make happen.
Well, this is definitely not the forum for this, but I would take issue with how one defines "better" in terms of how the Scandinavian countries you mention are "doing better" than us. Also, there is a big difference between investing in national infrastructure (education, economic opportunity, etc) and simple welfare or redistribution of wealth, with no accountability or expectations. We have a permanent underclass because of low expectations and dependency, not because of lack of opportunity.
Also, it is a bit more convenient to be able to invest all your national economy in the above areas when you don't have to be the police force for the world, as we are.
Though I agree with this in principle, the fact is there is no other way to penalize an institution for systemic cover up and abuse of their position of power and influence than to penalize the team currently competing.
It seems a bit out of proportion to me as well.
I confused. Either Urban is simply trying to say the politically correct things or he is really clueless. Every interview and press conference is littered with "I don't know"s and "I'm not sure"s and "maybe"s.
He is being paid, what $4M per year?? Figure it out!
It is easy in retrospect to say we went vanilla on Navy, but remember, we went vanilla because we couldn't hold their guys out.
Also, that game was a dogfight for 3/4 of it, I doubt we were simply holding back. I think there is a bit too much confidence about our offense, with no cause for such optimism yet given.
I hope they show development, but until it actually happens we need to be a grounded in a bit of reality.
