    Don't know Pappy it is attributed by multiple websites to Socrates..............whomever said it I think it is spot on.......

    Ted loves his lineman..............We have Lang, Sitton, Bahktiari and Tretter going UFA after this season. Hard to beleive Ted lets them all walk. I love Sitton but he is starting to break down and will be 30 in Juneso think Lang might be a better investment long term as he will be 29 in Sept and seems to be in better health if his shoulders are healed...then there is Bahktiari who will be only 25 in Sept. andis a solid LT but not consideredelite so if Spriggs looks like he can play LT I wonder if Ted lets Bahk walk as he is going to command big money as a FA..........We have Bulaga signed until 2020 but the guy seems to have trouble staying healthy....I also think some team gives Tretter starting Center money so I can't see him coming back as a backup...........Lacy is also UFA........ going to be interesting after this coming season with possbly a lot of OL and backfieldturnover so I hope they win it all this year as Arod and Nelson aren't getting any younger..................

    Nice solid draft for Ted and the Pack. No big names but looks like he got atheletic talented players with upside. Even managed to grab a talented OT with his 6th round pick who had a 3rd round grade.......I like what Ted did and can't wait for preseason to get a look at all the new players...

    Nota chance Monica is not hot enough for Trump to consider as VP......he seems to have a fixation with his daughter though so maybe he keeps it in the family.........

    Definately a typical Ted draft....no big name flashy playersjust solid athletic guys with upside........it is the first draft I can remember in a long time where his picks were in line with where the "experts " predicted they should be drafted. No obsure names I could not find on peoples playerranking lists or drafted several rounds early...at least so far..... Rd fourwould love them to grab an ILB, RB or CB....with so many UFA OL players next year maybe another OL to develop

    Ted loves his lineman and trades up and gets an athletic T Jason Spriggs.......read he has the talent to play LT and with 3 starters going UFA afrerthis season it is a good pick for the pack IMHO.....
  7. Any Yes fans?

    one mans music is anothers mans noise......I think death metal and hip hopis awful but to each his own..........
  8. Any Yes fans?

    I will give you the answer the ChiDem defenders used to say to those who trashed that album...."It is too complex for you and you just don't understand it"........... But seriously I get it, Prog is something you either love or not...doesn't seem to be a middle ground
  9. Any Yes fans?

    Been a huge Yes fan since the Yes album....saw them twice in the 70's with Wakeman, again with Moraz. Saw them again during the Union tour and on an off including with new singer Jon Davison a year ago who actually is very good and sounds a lotlike Anderson. Thought that incarnation of the band was respectable but that Downes was weal link on keyboards. He relly can;t play Wakeman's stuff very well. No interest in he current band now that Squire is gone and Anderson has said he and Wakeman are supposedly making new music with Trevor Rabin and might tour. To me that would be more Yes than the current band and I would love to see them tour........

    Sure if you consider 24th place out of 28 pollsters the "most reliable poll on the planet" http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/fordham-study-public-policy-polling-deemed-most-accurate-national-pollster-in-2012 You make it too easy mate..............

    So will Ted repeat last year and select another DT at #2 if it is the best value on the board? will be interesting to see if the TE Henry is still in play what Ted will do. Looking forward to see where he goes..........

    Well Len I enjoyed reading your creative insults but once you quoted Shades I could tell you were running out of ideas so I think it is time for me to stop responding and put this discussion out of its misery as it has run its course. That being said you are a very entertaining poster and look forward to future debates.

    Have the following inbound for next week Steven Stills Manassas 200 Gram Classic records reissue..........man I love this album as I think it is some of Stills finest work Steve Jones Fire and Gasoline still sealed promo album- former Sex Pistols 2nd solo album which straight out rocks. Even has Axl singing on one of the tracks. I have had this on CD since it was released so excited to finally get it on vinyl........

    If you look at their stats Clark is actually taller and about the same weight as Billings....also read today that he is as strong and more athletic than Billings who is apparently is limited side line to side line. Read an interview with him today and he went form basically no pass rushing moves to 6 sacks this past season by studying tapes and working with coaches on his moves so he is a hard worker.......also heard he started at UCLA at 17 as a true freshman and was second team all conference as an 18 yr old sophomoreso he must be talented. Considering all the talentstill on the board at the time of the pick seems he was the player Ted had targeted the whole time.....He is a typical Ted pick where he did not go after the higher rated players still on the board...only time will tell but we needed DL help and this guy seems like a safe pick
