If Carr shows his stuff, Snead'll be out pounding the streets.

Its lazy, knee jerk justice.

As far as Im concerned, drunk drivers are no worse than stupid drivers, and everyone on the road around me is, in my expectation, stupid. Therefore I approach all other drivers as if they are stupid. Because they are. This has kept me from having a single wreck, in 40 years of driving. Doesnt matter to me if they're drunk, stupid, or texting. Im gonna put the hammer down, and put them in my rear-view mirror.

The secret to highway safety is DRIVE FASTER. They just dont want to tell you that, because if word gets out, they wont be able to hold their radar roadside fund-raisers. People in Germany know this fact, but they want their Auto-Bahn to themselves.

HAUL AZZ, and the stupid, drunk, and textors will be in your past. The difference between drunk driver and texting drivers is that drunk drivers are looking at the road.

FREE WILLIE !
A person can sober up instantly from distracted driving or texting while driving. Not the case with DUI. Both can have disastrous consequences, but DUI is a more persistent danger.

Point 1- I agree to a certain extent. The average person is not impaired at the legal limit, and there are too many other factors that affect BAC.
I would be in favor of increasing the BAC number, but then adding to the penalty for anyone who violates it.

Point 2- Snead's dumbass move might have cost him a couple of million. It's 2017: friends, cabs, Uber, asst. coaches... just f***ing call someone. He screws up his livelihood bc of a few beers? Stupid.

Re: Willie Snead Suspended First 3 Games

This has to be the least talented and inexperienced group of receivers in the Sean/Drew era. This team has regressed drastically at TE and other than Thomas (15 NFL games), who makes his living between the hashes (making himself more vulnerable to injury) our WR corps is looking pretty questionable.

We'll know by noon CDT Oct. 1st if this group can make plays.

I think Carr is more than a stop-gap, though. What I saw is great hands, quick in short spaces, decent size/athleticism. Doesn't have much straight-line, break-away speed (4.6), but just gets open. I like him.
