  1. NFL Snooze News: Volume Four, Por Favor

    regarding Washington changing its team name... Red Tails has support for a few reasons. The Tuskegee Airmen, African-American pilots who fought in World War II, referred to themselves as the Red Tails, and the team has indicated it would like to honor the military with its next name. The red-tailed hawk, a bird sometimes seen in Washington, D.C., could serve as the team’s mascot. The name would also allow the team to keep and only slightly alter its fight song, with fans singing “Hail to the Red Tails.” Dan Snyder has all but confirmed that his team is going to change its name, so the only question is what the team’s next name will be. Red Tails seems like a popular choice. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/07/04/dwayne-haskins-likes-red-tails-if-washington-changes-team-name/

    The Patriots have agreed to terms with quarterback Cam Newton, the story was first reported by ESPN. Newton has a 2-0 record against the Patriots during his time with the Panthers. The first overall pick in the 2011 draft. It’s a low salary, one-year deal with plenty of incentives. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/06/28/patriots-sign-cam-newton/

    all the box stores and the larger chain paint stores all have optical scanners now that match paint exactly. you just have to take them a small sample, the size of a quarter or so.
  9. Eric Kendricks was ranked as the league's second-best linebacker by CBS Sports' Sean Wagner-McGough, who noted that he included only the "traditional" off-ball linebackers and not edge rushers (i.e. Khalil Mack, Von Miller or Chandler Jones). He wrote: "The anchor of the Vikings defense, Kendricks has been a quality linebacker for a while now. But in 2019, he experienced a career season that vaulted him up this list. For the first time in his five-year career, he garnered a [First-Team] All-Pro selection, which was well deserved after a 110-tackle season that also included 12 passes defended. According to PFF, those 12 pass breakups represent "the most we have ever seen over a season from that position." He's consistently one of the best coverage linebackers in football, which matters more in the modern, pass-happy version of the sport. Since he entered the league in 2015, he ranks fifth in combined tackles and second in passes defended among all linebackers. As the Vikings try to overcome the losses of several key contributors on the defensive side of the ball, they'll need Kendricks to maintain his level of production in 2020. The good news is that there's no real reason to expect a drop-off. At the age of 28, after a career-best season and entering his sixth NFL season, Kendricks is more likely to be entering his peak than his decline." https://www.vikings.com/news/eric-kendricks-ranked-2nd-best-linebacker-in-nfl?fbclid=IwAR0UOBgKT4St-0ClM9zPYanDDPP-fF3Od-vUFl21sRlHYvkkX4U9fs4Y0z0
  10. Knockin' on Valhalla's Door

    Running back Adrian Peterson, who entered the league in 2007 as a first-round pick of the Vikings, told TMZ that he hopes to play through 2023. “Man, why not four more years?” Peterson said. “Why not? I don’t want to ever be in a position where I look back and say, ‘Man, I should have played two more years, I should of played another year.’ I want to enjoy it. I’m still chasing a championship. You know, I can still play the game at a high level.” Peterson has 14,216 career rushing yards, 4,139 behind Emmitt Smith for the all-time record. And so Peterson needs to average 1,035 yards per year to catch Emmitt. Don’t bet against him. Peterson rushed for 898 yards in 2019, and 1,042 in 2018. Besides, if he’s close after 2023, maybe he’ll come back for one more season. That said, he’s now 35 years old. The biggest challenge will be to find a team that will give him a chance to be on the team and to get sufficient opportunities to run the ball in 2021, 2022, and 2023. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/06/24/adrian-peterson-hopes-to-play-through-2023/

    could be the buyers' bank requiring that. a bathroom cannot be considered a full bathroom without a functioning shower.

    i wasn't going to take the conversation down that path or encourage others to, just stating that in those arenas Kluwe and Walker couldn't be more different.
  13. Vikings by the Numbers

    the eccentric matter aside, what i really am trying to grasp is how Walker and Kluwe are similar. i mean... one is a multi talented top shelf athlete, an Olympian even, and the other is a specialist punter. one is rather humble and quiet, and one is flamboyant and outspoken. one is not known for taking stands on social issues and one certainly is. politically and religiously they are opposites.

    Herschel Walker was an overweight child without any ambition. Both of these things came to an abrupt end. His dad was frustrated and worried about his son and asked him what he wanted to do with his life. Herschel replied he didn't want to do anything but watch TV. His dad made him a deal. He would let him watch all the TV he wanted if he would exercise during the commercials. Herschel attacked that like he has everything else in his life, with full force. He began doing sit-ups and push-ups that eventually led to a routine of 3,500 sit-ups and 1,500 push-ups a day—a routine he still practices. Walker revealed that he suffers from dissociative identity disorder. As a consequence, he doesn't remember the season he won the Heisman Trophy or later holding a gun to his own head. He almost qualified for the U.S. Olympics as a sprinter. He later participated in the Winter Olympics in the two-man bobsled. He has been in professional ballets, Celebrity Apprentice and he is currently a 2-0 MMA fighter. Walker's personalities are very productive. i'm not sure that fits the description of eccentric. nor does any of this make him similar to Kluwe. who, by the way, didn't even make the list, lol.

    what's really eccentric about Walker? he seems fairly mainstream to me.
