  1. That's what I want more than anything else. Santa can I have a DQ Trump for Christmas?
  2. Geez that's gotta be the ONLY thing that saved this country from him. That and maybe that he's gutless as well... A Gutless Moron?
  3. Actually, I also was in Nederland in 1987. Went to Amsterdam and my best buddies future sister-in-law showed me around town... starting with the Rijksmuseum. Later linked up with my sister (not in Holland) who was in the Army in Stuttgart Germany, listening in on Czech radio as an interpreter/ spy. Loved the cavernous Koln (Cologne) Cathedral... Weird parallels...
  4. Yeah I didn't know that actually... always just thought they were American...
  5. "Lunatic Fringe" - by Red Rider. Cool song from 1981. Funny... I always get Lunatic Fringe mixed up with another song I like By Golden Earring: "Twilight Zone": Golden Earring... of "Radar Love" fame... The only band that I know of that had two One-Hit Wonders... Radar Love in 1973. And Twilight Zone in 1982.
  6. This guy is just the biggest **** you to Democracy, justice, the Constitution of the United States, human decency... since Hitler. The biggest ******* scumbag on the planet. Hated this contemptible **** since 1984.
  7. PS: I ESPECIALLY want the Senate vote to be a secret vote, and see where the number send up that way...
  8. I believe, IMO, that this was more of a RISK AVOIDANCE vote by the Pubs than an anti-Constitutional vote. I mean, some of them, yes... but I believe they used Rand Paul as a cover story to avoid the trial more than anything. I HOPE, that those numbers change after the trial, in voting guilty on the impeachment or not. We'll see...
  9. You can take care of that with conditional picks. A conditional 3rd in 2023 turns into a 2nd if Stafford signs an extension (franchise or otherwise)...
  10. ??? 49'ers trade Garrapolo to the Bears for draft picks (2nd and 3rd). Lions trade Stafford to the 49'ers for their 1st and 2nd round draft picks plus the Bears' picks that the 49'ers picked up in trading Garrapolo. How are we trading with the Bears...?
  11. Haha! They could be so lucky... So the next question is: Which of the top 4 is going to flame out? First and second choice? I think my first choice would be Wilson... because a slow-reading QB could absolutely be a death-knell in the NFL. Second choice Lance based on exposure to injury, and a steeper development/ learning curve than the other 3... I haven't heard of any personality problems with any of them so there's that at least... no Ryan Leaf issues it seems... I guess that means Lawrence & Fields I would look at as having the highest floors... So if I'm considering floors, as well as upside, then I would rank them on my draft board as: 1) Lawrence 2) Fields 3) Lance 4) Wilson
  12. Lawrence is going to thicken over the next few years. I think he ends up like Roethlisberger... pretty quick. Roeth is a bear to bring down, either in the pocket or in the open field. I don't know much about Lawrence, but, running-wise, I think that is where he ends up. I'm sticking with Roethlisberger comp, even if Lawrence gets out of the gate with more rushing yards than Big Ben... Downside of Joe Flacco (my lowside comp) seems a little too low... but I'll put it out there just for reference... Jackson is hitting 66% and 64% the past two years, and 1,000 yards rushing a year. That seems to be a pretty close comp to Lance. Russell Wilson averages 65% and 500 yards rushing per year. It seems like Jackson is Lance's upside, and Vick is the downside (less accurate at 56%, less durable (so far as compared to Jackson), and didn't hit 1,000 yards rushing). Wilson would be at the upper range (same accuracy but not as much rushing). Cam is less accurate (60% career), and averaged 600 yards/ year. If you're looking for accuracy, I'm not certain why you would choose Newton over Jackson as a comp for Lance. I'm sticking with Jackson as upside comp. I like Stafford as the upside of Wilson, with the big arm... but Wilson's downside is a slow read/ release. Who has a big arm but is a slow reader? Is that Drew Lock? I'll defer on this one... Prescott seems like a Rodgers-lite... With Rodgers more prolific, but at least in the same ballpark. They seem like Fields' upside comps. Vince Young? Geez, I hope Fields turns out better than that...!
  13. I'd like to hope that Will Harris could also still be salvaged... somehow. Has the athleticism, but doesn't seem to be catching on... not certain what the issue is there...
  14. This sounds more accurate than the other version...
  15. PS: What are comps (not that these guys will EVER get there... just trying to guesstimate their skill types/ similar style of play, etc...)? Lawrence = Roethlisberger Fields = Rodgers Wilson = Stafford Lance = Lamar Jackson They all seem extremely accurate, with different running abilities, read/release times (Wilson seems the slowest here...), etc... I guess if I had to rank them... it'd be Lawrence (most polished/ proven), Fields, Lance, Wilson.
  16. I think the cost to trade up to #1 will be too much. Lawrence is, what, the next Roethlisberger? There are different ways to win with a QB, and I don't want to pay that cost... The next 3: I have no clue who would be better than the other. Lance would be the trickiest because he has less experience, more projection/ development/ learning curve. He may turn out to be the best of all... but there's risk there. It looks like, however, that there are 4 premium QB's in this draft; at least that's what the scouting reports are saying. I'm not interested in Mac Jones or anyone else who is not one of those top 4. So to me, as long as the next 3 after Lawrence are pretty much equivalent to each other, that says that we either stay at #7 and grab whoever falls, or we need to trade up to #3 or #4 to get who we want. Maybe #2... but I'm guessing we could get the QB we want after the #2 selection... but just guessing on that point. If the Lions believe any of the next 3 would make the team happy, they may be OK with sitting at #7. If they target one above the others... then we'll see what kind of trade they feel they need to make in order to get their QB. At this point, I don't have an opinion on any 1 above any of the other top 4, including Lawrence.
  17. So the Pubs might go for that. Dems would then need to at least get a split on Senators...
  18. If we get the 12th pick I'll pipe down on my multiple picks scenario...
  19. The three bases I have for stating that: 1) The teams bidding on him will be in the mid-20's, except the Patriots. So to them two 1sts may be no issue whatsoever. 2) Make one of the picks a conditional 2nd. If he signs an extension with his new team, that turns into a 1st. I could see Playoff level teams open to that if they know they've got Stafford for the next 6 years team-friendly, instead of the next 2. 3) There are multiple Playoff level teams looking for QB's this year. One of them is going to be high bidder. Let's just see what happens when the bidding ends and Stafford is officially traded...
  20. PS: Dems could always dangle adding Puerto Rico as another new state in order to placate Pubs... Puerto Ricans LOVE the Trumpublican Party (at least per what Donald J. Trump - failed businessman - says...).
  21. So... D.C. Statehood July 2022? (Or whatever month allows our new state to gear up for 2022 elections... or get all the prelim work done and flip the switch whenever the correct date requires...).
  22. Nah... I don't see Biden lying at all. Maybe once a month on a mistaken factual misstatement. However... errors and mistakes... 2.5 per day might be low. And that still wouldn't be a bad thing. Just something the Pubs will be picking on every chance they get...
