You... You can't be, uh, serious. Please tell me you're joking. You might officially be the stupidest poster here if you believe the front office hates Christians.

Just saying how many players on our team can you say is a God fearing Christian. Because as far as drafting is concerned, we never have those kinds of rookies.

Though the board also was pushing for Grayson over Petty and I believe thats what led to the drafting of Grayson. SR did the same thing on their board. The QB is the most important position for maturity, you can win with a immature WR or RB, you can't with a immature QB. A religous person is more likely to be mature and study hard.
No, I'm not gonna chill with the insults. You really are the stupidest person on this board. Do you know how many openly Christian players we have on this team and have had in recent years?

Do you have any objective proof to that last statement? I'm not knocking Christians. I am one myself, but I would love to see empirical proof to that statement? There's not.

Frankly, it's asinine to say it. How about if I said, I prefer pagans on the defensive line because they are more likely to play fierce? Or if I said non Christians make better football players because a Christian would rather be at church than play on Sunday? It's baseless and ridiculous.

Why not say you would rather the team draft Christians because you prefer football teams with players who believe like you do?

That's not what you said though. You attribute those qualities to a religious person. Do I want maturity in the QB position? Sure. But one does not need to be religious to be mentally ready or mature. I'm sure many atheists possess those qualities.

Two things you should never talk about on a sports forum: Politics and Religion. Politics has its own section. Religion should be kept to yourself.

Not understanding your argument.
If the definition of maturity or a good person is Christian, then you would have to explain charlemagne, romes adoption and horrible acts, crusades, inquisitions, etc etc etc.. some of the the dumbest and most immature people in history were nut ball fanatical Christians. Same as idiot fanatical muslims we have to deal with now, to any sane person.
This is football..its a game.. we just want good players. Try to keep on track. Your opinion is fine, just doesnt make sense in this venue.

Re: LIVE THREAD SAINTS AND TEXANS PRESEASON

McCown should be cut, the guy is terrible.

I hope Griffin shows something in the final preseason game.

Remember previous preseasons when Brees went to the bench, Chase Daniel would come out and light the backups up. I've not seen one our backups do something like that in a while.
