I completely agree with you and your perspective on the AJ Hawk in Sconnie thing. I think being a high draft pick, people expect crazy stupid production.

But AJ looks more than a couple steps slow this year. He isn't reading plays the same way he did before and he is getting pushed around a lot. I told my buddy, who is also a Packers fan, that AJ was in his last year as a Packer. That was in the Spring. I think it is a true statement.

As a Packers fan I will be sad to see him go. But he is no longer playing at a level that would warrant a high snap count. He will go down as an underrated NFL player and may one day be considered for the Packers HOF.

Well considering that my imgur post was downvoted into oblivion by some of them last night...They can suck it.

Hopefully they let him play ball. If they let him throw the ball down the field a lot and we win, the committee may still out us in the playoff. If they let him throw the ball down the field a lot and we lose, who is gonna bitch about us throwing our 3rd string QB out there and just going for the win?

He would have if he didn't jump offsides on the one series. He would have had 2 strip sacks.

This is the trap the Raiders and Bengals have gotten into the last decade. You can have one wild card but knowingly going after a second will set you up for failure. What if they both got suspended for the things you know they have struggles with.

He did, but it was," The University of Ohio State."

I think basketball scheduling would be pretty difficult considering the amount of D-1 teams, the fact they play two games a week, figuring travel time/costs and etc...

I agree with you and all, but I think it's not always convenient to achieve a more desirable schedule. Just because we have a schedule opening doesn't mean the opponents we want have the same thing.

I'm at work. I will find you and give you money this week or that day.  But sold!

I am sorry, but I chuckled with this one. Unless Muschamp is willing to do a 180 on the things he said about Urban and the state in which he left the team, this will not happen.

Anyways, the team has shown a lot of improvement from last year and from week to week. I think not having Noah Spence has made a bigger impact on the d-line rotation than a lot of people are willing to admit. The d-backs are playing with a little more confidence and swagger than they have in the last couple of years and the linebackers are solid without being great, what more do you want from a team? The game yesterday was as close as it was due to turnovers and not the defense just mailing it in. You can't have short fields and not expect to give up touchdowns to a team that just runs the ball as well as anyone in the country. 

With that being said, Urban should always be looking to upgrade. I just think you are giving up on Fick/Ash way too soon.

I think, for the most part, everyone will agree with you. Although I wouldn't want to make members feel uncomfortable with voicing their frustrations, I agree that a collective deep breath is needed with those who are not able to just sit back and allow a voice of reason to reach out to their keyboard. 

Each fanbase has their collective group who are always negative about the things going on and believe that we should be perfect all the time and blah blah blah. When you hear it and read it, it can make one believe that that is how everyone feels. In all honesty, it is just a few people out of the many. 

11w is a great community that has it's jackassery just like everyone else. But I will take our jackasses over those of some other communities we talk about :).

Research shows adolescent females are more prone to concussions than their male counterparts. Same goes for their propensity to have torn acl's more than young men. 

Comment 12 Nov 2014

To be honest, I will not let me son play football. The risk/reward with football is not great for the average person. However, the lessons learned from teamwork, dedication, and preparation are very effective when it comes to playing a physical team sport. I was fortunate enough to have great coaches from my midget football league all the way to highschool but I wouldn't guarantee that my son would have the same outcome. I know a lot of people who have had the opposite experience.

There are a lot of other factors in why I would not prefer my son to play. The young people that are playing these games are still developing within their neuro system and although it is not very likely they would have permanent damage or damage that would impair some physical, emotional or neurological development, it is just not worth exposing them to it in a situation where it is more likely to happen than when walking down the street. 

Some people will argue that things can happen anywhere and they are correct. However, placing a young person in a sport that has a higher prevalence of said injuries is not the same. Hell, I passed out when I had the flu at a swim meet when I was climbing on the blocks and I gave myself a concussion-but that was not my first that year and the other two were a result of playing baseball (hit by pitch) then summer football practice. So yes, it can happen anywhere or anytime. But the part that sucked was the acute migraine along with dizziness that affected every movement I made that eventually just progressed into dizziness at crappy times like when I was driving or during my AP Calc final. That was a horrible experience for an 18 year old.

If he won't let his kids play football that is he and his family's decision, just as it is mine.

PS: Not allowing kids to run during recess is ludicrous (and not the rapper).

I just feel like I'd take him in a fight with a swift uppercut. 

I will have to defer to your judgment on this one.

But yes, Drew Sharp is well...something not very good. I would prefer to call someone like him a turd burglar.

This is the funniest thread I have seen so far.

But yes... Fire him.

That is a damn true statement.
