This week…

It all starts this week. Tonight is the Hall of Fame game to start the pre-season and the rest of the teams start playing at the end of this week. The Hall of Fame inductions were last evening marking the start of another football season.

Congratulations to the inductees:

Jerome Bettis

Tim Brown

Charles Haley

Will Shields

Mick Tingelhoff

Bill Polian

Ron Wolf

And of course Junior Seau, the only one of these inductees who played in Miami

Here is the link to the speech Sydney Seau, Junior’s daughter, would have given for her father. The Hall doesn’t allow full speeches unless the inductee gives it himself essentially. It’s beautiful:

    The last picture shows Lineman with newest compression sleeves for legs/knees you can put cold jell packs inside for high ankle,knee, thigh,and hamstring. I got one of these several months back and they help tremendously.

    This is one of the baddest 4th generation planes ever built. The plane can stall if it goes to fast because of to much air coming inside intakes so they invented a automatically adjusting paddle system inside the intakes to deflect the intake air.

    Here’s Russia’s 5th generation fighter plane—It’s Utube of it 1/2 way through made me dizzy. The plane is very maneuverable. Take a test ride if you dare.

    OC Marc Trestman said he doesn’t expect the Ravens to use the shotgun much in 2015.
    “We’re an under-the-center offensive football team,” said Trestman. “Defenses and game-planning will determine that. But ultimately, we’re under the center.” After taking a league-high 625 snaps from the shotgun in 2013, the Ravens backed off that approach by giving Joe Flacco only 243 plays from the shotgun last season. Flacco’s 91.0 passer rating last year was his highest since 2010.

    • jetsssuck says:

      lets not forget the plane is replacing several designs (ac) including from several armed forces. The hornet had many problems before being released to the different armed forces. I saw the hornet several times in Fallon, Nv several years apart and it was reported to have been there for over a decade before passing all the readiness tests.

    • jetsssuck says:

      I got out of military in 81 and I have a lot of friends in different US military branches. My best friends younger brother was with airwing mobility command out of Illinois and they flew large cargo planes in Afgan/Iraq. They would drop fuel pods instead of driving the dangerous roads with planes similiar to this plane. How about the b52 that baby is over 50 years old I believe. One of my friends used to be a avionics specialist in the early 70’s for it.

    ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer said he doesn’t “think there’s a doubt” Ronald Leary will be the Cowboys’ Week 1 starter at left guard.
    Archer said rookie La’El Collins “hasn’t been bad” but it’s going to take more than that to “knock out the champ.” A spot could open up for Collins if Leary gets hurt but for now, we should stop calling this a battle and accept that Leary has won the job.

    LT Branden Albert lining up w/2nd team in walk-thru speed drill. Looks 2 b progressing. Limp obvious. But progressing.

  42. steveccnv says:

    Most teams expect Mathis to take a discount because of his age (34 in November), and how late in the offseason he was released by the Eagles. One league executive whose team has explored Mathis said he will eventually sign a one- or two-year deal that pays roughly $4 million a season.

    That will work.

    My biggest concerns for #Dolphins: 1. Branden Albert, 2. DeVante Parker, 3. Kicker, 4. LBs (tackling), 5. Guard
    ____________________________
    Good to see OG’s last, but his post is dumb.
    Albert will be back by game #3…IMO….and PArker likely even before that (plus we have other credible WR’s)
    LB’s are gonna be ok, we got Suh & Co. collecting blockers for them to make cleaner angles to the ball.
    Kickers will be the best of Franks & Sturgis…why worry too much now.

    OG play is my #1 concern, followed by a distant #2 with kickers.
    The rest of the team seems to be coming along fine!

  55. getterdone says:

    Omar Kelly ✔ @OmarKelly
    Jordan Tripp and Zach Vigil are the 2nd team inside linebackers. They do the nickel package work.
    ________________________________
    This is the two guys I like as nickel LB’s…..great way for them to cut their teeth, gain experience, plus they are probably about the best LB’s in coverage….like having 2 extra Strong Safeties in.

    Manitoba—-here is the procedures that you should follow to see what program was installed. You should look for any thing that is not Microsoft which will be the non-essentials.
    Start->computer->Uninstall/uninstall program———–Now look at the column “date” make sure arrow is pointing up so all the programs start at the earliest . The last entry should be the last program installed. Now ask yourself when the virus started was it last night last week and then look for this around the date. If you are unsure you can do a dependencies check of a program. Don’t uninstall Microsoft programs.If this doesn’t wotk then you can try going to a earlier backup date(rollback)

    There is a error log that you can tell you but it requires a little more dangling which can get you into trouble easier. To check if your computer is reporting problems, follow these steps: Open Action Center by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, and then, under System and Security, clicking Review your computer’s status. Click Maintenance, and then, under Check for solutions to problem reports, click Settings.

  94. Mike E. says:

    It makes me laugh how everyone is trying to convince everyone else that the guards we have are good. Until the games start that is . . . . Then their play will speak for itself, and we’ll see what the real deal is.

  97. getterdone says:

    Mike E, I’m not going to hit panic button on OG’s yet. We haven’t even had a PS game yet. So far it’s been Suh or Mitchell getting by their man for a few plays here and there, not every snap.

    #90 & #93 are about as good as DT’s get. So no other OG in the NFL would be able to stonewall them every down.
    Remember, Mathis was a better run blocker and graded less in pass blocking.
    It’s still very early in camp. Let Philbin & Benton continue to get these guys that are already here some work.

    It’s very encouraging that rookie Douglas has flashed.
    It’s great news that Dallas Thomas is back practicing today after a shoulder scare.
    It’s encouraging that Turner is healthy this year after missing his rookie year essentially.
    It’s encouraging that last week Tanny said he feels safe when asked about the OL.

    I think we’ll see good stuff on the horizon.

    I’m not in panic mode, but a lot of people are trying real hard to convince everyone that our OG’s are good, when I really don’t see it. We’ll see when they start playing some games, and the preseason itself may not tell all either.

      Preseason will at least shed some light on it. Especially what we have without #71.

    Im with Mike. Yeah, it’s early but not much has really changed. The OGs are getting smoked every practice. Albert is the fix for OT. I’m not saying these guys can’t eventually be the answer. I don’t want us going through any of the season figuring out the OG position.

    ANDERSON – Here are our observations from Wednesday night’s practice at Anderson University:

    • Defense rules the day

    You might have read how Andrew Luck hadn’t thrown an interception during the first three days of training camp.

    So much for that.

    On Day 4, Luck threw three interceptions during 7-on-7 and full-team drills Wednesday, three huge plays on a night when the defense came away a decisive winner.

    Luck threw picks to Vontae Davis, Darius Butler and Greg Toler – each of the Colts’ top three cornerbacks. Davis’ play, in particular, was a thing of beauty. There was an apparent miscommunication between Luck and T.Y. Hilton, his intended receiver. Nevertheless, Davis seemed to bait Luck into throwing an ill-advised pass, contorting his body and adjusting beautifully once the ball came his way.

    The interception to Butler was not among Luck’s best work. He locked onto Andre Johnson as he raced to the corner of the end zone, allowing Butler to get an early break on the ball and make the interception in stride near the goal line.
    ____________________________________
    Time to trade Luck before he signs a big contract.

  119. getterdone says:

    Quarterbacks report

    Even Peyton Manning makes mistakes. During 7-on-7 drills, Manning was intercepted on a short pass by safety T.J. Ward, who ran it all the way back to the end zone. Manning went on to miss on a few throws throughout practice, most of which were presumably caused by miscommunication with his receivers.

  120. stangerx says:

    Guess ffr looking for a new tent means he hasn’t tracked this one down yet (you’d have to have been at the first Fest to get that).

    On a machine with Intel Core-i5 or i7 and a standard HDD, how long should an installation of Windows 7 64 bit roughly take? I’m after a rough estimate because my installation seems to be running quite slowly (previously, I’ve installed Win7 32bit on a laptop and it went much quicker but maybe there are differences between 32 and 64 bit editions).

    Mine took less than an hour, but I don’t know the exact time because I didn’t care to stay in the room the whole time. – mmyers Mar 12 ’10 at 19:54

    In the end, my installation took about 40 minutes (Core i7, decent SSD, 8GB RAM) so it was probably pretty normal. I was little bit worried at first because the beginning was “weird” – long waiting on screens that didn’t provide much feedback of what was going on. – Borek Mar 12 ’10 at 20:25

    I also have the long waiting screens. It happened with Vista too. It’s only been on computers I have built myself, OEM hardware seems to start off fine. I think it’s Windows trying to find drivers. – ta.speot.is Mar 12 ’10 at 22:23

    Not nearly as long as it takes to load all the updates. – Daniel R Hicks Aug 6 ’13 at 2:46

    It usually takes me around an hour to get a booting Windows 7 system with the basic drivers installed. It then takes at least another day installing updates and service packs. – Majenko Jun 14 ’14 at 12:42

      All i did was tried to uninstall W-10. Supposedly have 30 days to do so and it removes it and puts you back to W7. My W7 desktop and startup is back on screen. I Just cant click on anything as it is still “thinking”. I have no plan or desire to wipe the drive. God i hope it dont come to that. And for clarity based on youbsaying it can take a day, if after work tomorrow bits still thinking i will turn power off and back on and see where i am at at that point.

    I will join with GDP In cautioning all about “free Upgrade to Windows 10 ” The message i got looked VERY authentic and came in on my Windows Update box, so i assumed it was legit.. If it was legit W10 sucks .. If it was not legit, it was well played and very disruptive..

    I’m not in panic mode, but a lot of people are trying real hard to convince everyone that our OG’s are good, when I really don’t see it. We’ll see when they start playing some games, and the preseason itself may not tell all either.

    Mike you have got ot in one. Why are people stressing over our OGs. The coaches are trying different combos right now which is exactly what they should be doing. By the time the 3rd preseason game comes around it will be sorted. All teams go through crap like this during the camps. I blame the beat writers for inflaming the masses by spouting crap.

    Look there yet another pix of Drew the snake talking to MT. Reporter thinks it must be about Mathis. DR represents a lot of Phin players. If indeed it is about Mathis my reading of the body language is DR is pleading and MT is not having any of it. FTR the tent is much more appealing.
