    It's a lot less work to be a sheep than the shepherd. It's much easier to adopt someone else's opinion than to think for yourself.

    Getting the "scoop" depends heavily on favorability, which depends heavily on historical news concerning the entity that the station/newspaper wants the insider info from.

    Typically a news station/paper models the views of their Editor in Chief, or owner.

    Media is "for profit". This means it works for a business entity & that entity has its own agenda.

    MSNBC won't report poorly on (I think) GE

    ABC/ESPN won't say anything against Disney

    Fox... Well I can't figure them out. Are the just stupid OR are they stupid like a Fox? (Hah - I kill me)

    Upon further review: OLB Eric Martin, Nebraska

    I agree with the OP's analysis of Martin. In the highlight video of him, I saw him rush the passer well; play the run well, and cover on special teams. I did not see him drop back into coverage one time, and that will be the make or break for this player. If he can pick up on the coverage responsibilities of playing OLB, he has a chance. If he can't, at 245, he's way too small to play DE, especially in a 3-4.

    At the least, he should be primed to be an excellent kicking game player...

    This is very good. And hey, we had another player named Eric Martin once upon a time and he worked out very well. Let's add another! I can totally see this guy making the team.

    Saints' Kobayashi Maru: Drew Brees Contract

    Let's just say that last season should be thrown out due to it's unusual circumstance. It may have happened, but it's not likely to be an issue going forward.

    The circumstances on the ground today is that the offense has a lot of highly paid players, and that relative to performance, they may not really deserve that level of pay. The same can be said of the defense, probably more than the offense. The issue is that, contractually, the team has so little wiggle room it will be near impossible to make the necessary personnel moves to realize the new strategy over the next 2-3 years.

    As fans, we want to field the best team possible. For players, they want to make the most money they can over their limited playing careers. Those two goals only meet when the team has leverage over the salaries. Once the ability of the team to leverage the cap is gone, so too is the likelihood of success.

    Teams who are perennial winners never give up leverage in salaries.

    Sanity Zone 1-19-2013 Positive Rights

    Xan - if you wish to look at the economic costs associated with guns, dont just focus on where the guns are. Try looking where they are not, at the costs associated with low gun ownership in the UK but having somewhere near a 5x-10x crime rate.

    Which is why the Bill of Rights should only be amended with positive rights.

    Saints' Kobayashi Maru: Drew Brees Contract

    No one forgot about the defense. But how do you buy a defense with no salary cap room? You can blame whoever you want for the losses, but the Saints made a decision of what was more important, and you can't blame them for wanting to keep their franchise QB. The amount of money it took to keep him is going to put the onus on the coaches to find a way to do more with less, on defense. If we can at least get one impact player on D this off season, be it through the draft or otherwise, that would help.

    He did throw a lot of picks, but he still threw the most td's last season. But the offense just couldn't make up for how piss poor the defense was, why has everyone forgotten that? Or has all this bull **** about salary caps turned everyone into a stammering idiot?
