  1. I think there is a fair argument to not being happy with the unvaccinated. What exactly are they doing the get us out of this mess? The answer is nothing. I get it is a bit scary and you have vaccines that are experimental and not fully approved, but to quote unquote wait for facts or just plain not get it ever while everybody else takes the jump to protect themselves and their communities is a little morally reprehensible, I'm sorry. It is a personal choice, so be it. It also affects people around them , though.
  2. You didnt even read my post correctly. I was asked why we would be worried about the unvaccinated and I gave scenarios as to what could happen if people didnt get vaccinated. The data we see now is with more than half of populations in numerous countries vaccinated.
  3. Umm, that the pandemic continues to rage on at an uncontrollable rate, maybe? Continuation of lockdowns for the foreseeable future with new variants popping up with no conceivable solution until the virus maybe burns out? Or maybe it wouldnt. Those are very valid concerns. Vaccines are a tangible solution to ending the pandemic for all of us, if you take it. If you dont, with few exceptions willing, you are essentially doing nothing to help, no matter how you want to justify your choice. I know you think youre making a smart point here, but I dont think you get it, so Ill stop there.
  4. I didnt say that, I said the paragraph was nonsense. I literally cannot decipher it.
  5. What the hell does that first paragraph even mean? Complete, complete drivel.
  6. The whole "it's a personal choice" argument falls apart in a global pandemic when it's the case that people getting a vaccine contribute to the end of the pandemic and the people who don't do nothing to improve the situation. People conveniently leave that part out. So yes, it's a personal choice, but your personal choice affects your community. Like, I get the "the vaccine is experimental" thing and it's all a little scary but not getting a vaccine is selfish. It just is. The people on the colts not getting a vaccine are selfish. That's all there is to it.
  7. There's a far greater argument that the receiving core is overrated, really. The whole thing is based on unproven assumptions because our only steady, predictable guy is Pascal. Everything else, we're all assuming TY isn't washed, Campbell will stay healthy and Pittman will take another step. Those things might be true, but we don't know that at all.
  8. Uhm, no. Good thing that's not what I said, then.
  9. The Titans are favorites for the division. There's too much projection needed for the Colts. Receiving core unproven, QB needing a bounce back, young players on the DLine and Secondary have to step up. Not that most of those things couldn't go our way, but there are too many question marks. The Titans have questions on defense but the offense is close to a sure thing.
  10. Us continuing to be a playoff team next season requires a massive amount of projection and assuming that young guys in multiple position groups will step up, there's no doubt about it. I just can't get with people forgetting that about us but then criticizing the Titans for getting a proven top receiver. It's just not logical.
  11. I take it from this post that every player has an exactly similar career. Good to know.
  12. I'm not pooing on the organization here because it was quite obvious this wasn't really a possible move for us, but this is the type of gutsy move you do if you want to give yourself a chance to win. Even as unrealistic as getting Julio was, I almost wanted it to happen just so the people ridiculously putting this move down as not "Ballard-like" would have to do an about face and call it his most genius move ever. Let's not do the thing where this is a bad move because the Titans made it, it's not. Julio at 32 years old is still a very fine player. Also, people talking about the T
  13. Who cares, man, honestly. It's been known Leonard isn't really an analytics darling, likely because he's a little shakier in coverage at times. PFF does their thing and you can agree or disagree with their process and opinions when it suits. Same for the Jonathan Taylor thing. They're just a resource.
  14. This may not be realistic due to lack of trade ammo and salary reasons, but can we stop pretending we couldn't use a receiver of Julio Jones' talent? Come on now.
  15. Financially and in terms of the capital we have to offer Atlanta, the Julio to Indy thing makes no sense whatsoever. If we could do it, I'd have no problem with it because he's a piece that could help us put us over the top, but there's no way this will materialize.
