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.

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.
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.

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.

But Christians are more mature, and in this day and age of young people, you never know what non-Christians' lives are like until after you draft them. There are way too many NFL players now that like to live and have fun, clubbing, partying. I don't see this with the best QBs in the league(except Wilson if you can call him that). Luck, Brees, Manning, Palmer, Rivers, Rodgers are all settled down. I'm not sure Rodgers was doing all that stuff before Munn. I think we found out why Griffin was struggling in past pre-seasons when it came to a head this offseason. I bet SP whipped him a new one or maybe getting his face smashed grew him up. However he's not tasked with having to watch film. And that separates the elite from the non-elite. So when that point comes he better get his act together if he hasn't.

I mean what do we know about Grayson's life off the field? I don't think Petty's doing anything this pre-season either but what team is he on again?

I don't think Petty is that guy. At all. And that Christianity is even condemned by the Bible what you described because no one is supposed to judge.

Re: LIVE THREAD SAINTS AND TEXANS PRESEASON

And after seeing the above back to football, I agree. I want to move on.

Re: LIVE THREAD SAINTS AND TEXANS PRESEASON

Religious people, in theory, if they follow their faith, are, by nature, disciplined, selfless, and courageous. Not to mention, again theoretically, for the benefit of those selectively offended, they would have a greater purpose, and be also less likely, to make it rain, or consume 8 balls. In theory.

thats my super holy religious take. if anyone doesnt like it, they can go f*ck themselves.

: ) have a nice day.

-- back on track... we looked like Sh1t vs. the Texans, who, without the benefit of a real NFL QB, atriculated the ball down the field like the '67 Chiefs.
There's no way to put lipstick on the pig that is our on-field performance.
