    [–] PFF: QB Rankings after Week 10 Redditsoldestaccount 1 points ago in nfl

    I named QB's ahead of him on this list. I simply think this list of QB rankings doesn't take into account Cam's other attributes.

    You think he sucks, I think Cam is great. Ok

    [–] PFF: QB Rankings after Week 10 Redditsoldestaccount 1 points ago in nfl

    I understand your point about biases but that doesn't directly address what I'm saying. Linebackers aren't slower to react to the running back because of Andy Dalton or Case Keenum. Also, I guess you've never seen Georgia Tech play, their qb doesn't do much passing. But it's not even like that, Cam is a great passer but sometimes has mental lapses and always has mediocre or poor line play.

    These are overall QB rankings and my point is they don't fully encompass all of a QB's ability.

    All your other points are a matter of opinion, and to each their own.

    I never said he was the best passer, throwing the ball isn't the only way to play quarterback. Cam being a consistent threat to run opens up the entire field (which we need because we have mediocre offensive weapons, best we've had in years though this season) for the rest of the offense. His sheer size and athleticism keeps linebackers on their heels, not allowing them to commit to a gap when we do a run/pass read option; that split second is the difference between a tackle for a loss and a first down. He can also make any throw you need him to, though sometimes he doesn't step in to his throws and sails them as a result. He sometimes simply makes poor decisions with the football. He has been improving his mechanics but he is still has so much room to grow as a pocket passer. It's amazing to have an MVP quarterback with still so much room to improve. And he does all of this despite never having a decent offensive line. He's the most spectacular player I've ever seen in 20 years of playing and watching football.

    Thank you, box score scouts consistently shit on him making it obvious they don't watch him play/ understand his effect on an entire defense's scheme. Yea he has bad games, but he also carries the entire offense on his back

    [–] Access restrictions don't fully address Vikings' concerns, but FOX declined to reassign Greg Olsen Redditsoldestaccount 5 points ago in nfl

    I'm happy about it; hope he gets a ton of insider information on the Vikings because we're going to need anything we can get to beat y'all in a couple of weeks.

    Also, you'll enjoy Greg as a commentator. He's very articulate and intelligent

    Same thing I said to the other person- it's your job as a citizen to hold your government accountable; blindly defending its actions is naive.

    Think critically, scrutinize public officials and policy, please.

    [–] Washington orders RT America to register as foreign agent by Monday Redditsoldestaccount 35 points ago in worldnews

    Keep in mind the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 legalized the domestic dissemination of propaganda in the US.

    Try to find primary sources and then balance secondary sources with opposite biases. The truth is somewhere in the middle.

    Consider this question please - does it suit the interests of those in power to keep the people charged with the duty of holding them accountable fighting amongst themselves and therefore, distracted and divided?

    [–] Hillary had a secret deal with the DNC to stop Bernie Redditsoldestaccount 7 points ago in politics

    Thank you for this well reasoned response. I'm an American who is extremely critical of our federal government because much of it is demonstrably and obviously corrupt. Every time I point something out like this I'm just labeled a russian shill. It's like people don't understand nuance anymore

    Being critical of your government is one of the most patriotic things you can do. We have to hold our representatives accountable because the government is supposed to be an instrument of the people, not vice versa.

    [–] The hackers who upended the U.S. presidential election had ambitions well beyond Hillary Clinton’s campaign, targeting the emails of Ukrainian officers, Russian opposition figures, U.S. defense contractors and thousands of others of interest to the Kremlin. Redditsoldestaccount 1 points ago in worldnews

    My point is our institutions have been plagued by rampant corruption for a while now and this Russia interference is simply bringing it to light to the people that haven't paying attention while simultaneously enabling corrupt politicians to deflect any scrutiny of their own misdeeds on to this Russian scapegoat. Just look at the ongoing DNC lawsuit where its current defense is literally that it's a private entity and therefore doesn't have to be impartial even though it claims to be. Also, the RNC in Colorado straight up cancelled the vote and just selected Ted Cruz.

    Our politician's corruption and Russian interference are not mutually exclusive

    After the Soviet Union collapsed, Russia didn't have the economic or military might (never really did) to match up with the US so they decided to engage in asymmetrical warfare in the manner of dividing our population on partisan lines and inflaming irrational and emotional tendencies. Quite brilliant actually. They took it right out of our playbook (Radio Free Asia and Radio Free Europe during the Cold War).

    But, can we not acknowledge that while also acknowledging the fact that our own nation engages in political propaganda? And, that it suits the people in power to keep the population bickering amongst ourselves so that we don't question the increasingly draconian legislation (Patriot Act, NDAA2013, upcoming Liberty Act) that deteriorates our civil liberties and the endless wars that are bankrupting our country? Speaking of the NDAA2013, did you know that it legalized the domestic dissemination of propaganda by the State Department?

    The two themes in the pargarphas above are not mutually exclusive. We can recognize that foreign governments definitely try to influence our election (hell, just look at AIPAC) while also recognizing that our governmnet engages in these tactics as well.

    Now that we're past that, we can focus on our own government; Remember how it lied to us in order to drag us into the Iraq War? Remember how we are still at War in Afghanistan after 16 years? Politicians and the media will argue all day about transgender bathrooms that affect 1% of population but when it comes to feeding the perpetual war across the globe they fall in lock step support. What has been the return on investment for the American people for these wars? Why have the people who have lied to us under oath (James Clapper saying NSA didn't spy on Citizens) not held accountable?

    We the people are being exploited, distracted, and lulled into complacency while the politicians that supposedly represent us become millionaires through insider trading and crony capitalism, laughing all the way to the bank.

    The CIA is run by Trump's guy.

    The CIA does whatever it likes with impunity regardless of whoever publicly runs it.

    I have no comment on your other points, other than the fact that divide and conquer is the oldest method of control. We are dividing ourselves arguing over who is to blame when we all need to take an introspective look at what has been happening in our country over the last century.
