@kjayhawks Have to agree with you. Our offensive line just HAS to give our QB time enough to let the play develop - -let him make his reads , have said it before , doesn’t matter how talented the QB is , if he is spending 3/4 of his time running for his life then we are screwed no matter who the QB is, same goes on the offensive line and our running backs - they have got to open holes hold their blocks - -no matter how quick a running back is - how talented is if the hole isn’t there - the hole isn’t there. - Two major area’s that we just must get better and a lot better at that.
I think also - we have to have a lot better improved play out of our D-line. - -We can’t expect our secondary to stay receivers all day long, sooner or later no matter how good your secondary is - -if the D-line isn’t getting any pressure flushes out of the opposing QB he will pick us apart. - -Have just got to get some pressure on the QB -to manty times we made opposing QB’S look like Tom Brady - their mouths just watered when we played them - time to run up the stats - -then when we get beat like we do - the secondary catches hell for coverage - not by far totally their fault. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
@JayHawkFanToo Do you think that we should let Russia take over the Baltics and Ukraine now? Is NATO not the organization best positioned to prevent that from happening? You can try to splice the rhetorical peapod with a nanoblade, but if the answers to these two questions are yes, then undermining NATO is a mistake.
Ukraine is not a member of NATO but in any case, ask Ukraine how well it has worked so far…
NATO countries agreed In 2006 to increase their military spending to 2% of their GDP and in the 12 years since then only 4 countries, UK, Poland, Greece and Estonia have met that target and countries like a Germany with the largest economy in a Europe are at 1.2% while the US is at 3.6% of a much larger economy and at 70% of the budget, it contributes almost 3 times the contribution of all the other countries…combined. This is unacceptable and untenable and the President is correct in asking them to live up to what they agreed, particularly when it is their own security…how exactly is this undermining NATO? If anything, it is trying to make it stronger.
The current German administration has been hostile to the US for a while now and has become close with Russia building a direct pipeline that will make it even more energy dependent. As you recall this has been an ongoing concern for our 3 previous administrations as well; in fact, the Obama administration was caught spying on Chancellor Merkel, precisely because of the concern that if economic sanction were imposed on Russia, how would Germany act agains the country that control its energy?
