  1. All that I will say is that I heard Peters with my own ears state to a reporter that he would not miss playing beside Evan Mathis. It is all irrelevant anyway. How much does anyone of us really know about the players we root for?
  2. Peters wouldn't call anyone out in the press GB but would make his wishes known to the powers that be. Sometimes those PRIVATE conversations get leaked. I can remember the press asking Peters if he was going to miss Mathis on the line after he went to Denver and Peters said no!. That was about as direct of an answer as you could get which surprised me a little bit. It was after that occurred that the story came out that Peters didn't like playing beside Mathis.
  3. Will Jon Runyan ever be voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame?
  4. If I wasn't so lazy at the moment I would look up run versus pass ratios in 2017 versus 2018. Did the Eagles pass more times last year then they did in 2017? Obviously if you were passing much more last year then the year before, at the beginning of the season, that staggered line would have shown up more. Even if Seumalo wasn't as good at pass blocking as Wiz, if he was taught the same blocking style in pass protection as Peters, the line would have felt more uniform as far as protection to the QB.
  5. I don't know about you ham but I can remember Peters making positive statements about Wiz in 2017 when he finally replaced Seumalo the first time. Things to the effect that the line was a lot better after the replacement. Something must have changed last year.
  6. Ham, I read a couple articles on our front line through the past months and one of them stated that Peters didn't like playing beside Wiz or Evan Mathis for the same reasons. Both of these guys were taught to block their man at the line of scrimmage and Peters was taught to take three steps back from the line and then set up to block his guy. Of course that is pass blocking. So because you have a LT stepping back before he sets up to block and a LG setting up at the line of scrimmage, you end up with a staggered line. Neither way to pass block is better or worse than the other but the fact that two people were doing it differently and they weren't all on the same page, it caused the line some grief. Since Peters is the HOF player, he got his way! Right or Wrong, I blame the whole situation on Stoutland. If the staggered line was an issue, lets see if we can straighten it out. You can teach SOME old dogs new tricks. Its just a matter of how long you want to give them to learn.
  7. Hey fans, Have a look at this! https://www.yahoo.com/sports/former-patriot-marquis-flowers-tweets-224039791.html

  9. Here is something for you to read GB just in case you weren't aware of this! https://www.heraldtribune.com/news/20190320/charlotte-county-welcomes-allegiant-sunseeker-resort
  10. You having company GB or are you eating all that yourself?
  11. Down here any rock more than two inches in diameter was probably imported. All things are relative I guess. My location is 29 feet above sea level however, When I went swimming in the dead sea the elevation was 1388 below sea level.
  12. I heard that Joe Douglas told the press that the reason he accepted the title of GM from the Jets was because "Miracle Worker" was not an official job title. LOL

  14. Speaking about the beach, I saw a BIG guy 300+ pounds on the beach the other day and he had a tee shirt on that read " Being Cremated is my last hope for a smoking hot body". It cracked me up at the time and I have no idea what size that shirt was but it was comparable to a Colemen tent!
  15. You still are DWD. Didn't your aunt teach you anything????????????????
  16. GB, I read not long ago that the US has roughly 10,000 citizens turning age 65 every day. Think about those numbers for a moment. Apparently that has been going on for the last 3 years and will continue to go on for the next 14 years. Most of these people will be retiring and a lot of them will be moving to a place they "want" to be for the first time in their lives. A lot of those folks are coming our way. That is why we have so many Eagles fans down here in Florida. Transplants. The most expensive baseball spring training tickets down here are the Yankees, Red Sox and Phillies.
  17. Does this picture look familiar TD123? https://www.talenenergy.com/generation/fossil-fuels/brunner-island
  18. 4 miles from my house. The bay is 1 mile. Looks a lot different than that power plant across the river from your house. LOL I spent 33 years working there.

  21. I know that I have said this before but I think it is worth repeating on this father's day. "My father didn't tell me how to live my life. He lived his and let me watch him do it"! A good character is the best tombstone. If you carve your name on hearts while you are living it won't be necessary to carve it on granite when your gone.
  22. Everyone thinks they are living in best area. LOL Here is what NBA Great Bill Russel had to say about Boston - Bill Russell
  23. Here are the stats ham https://www.foxsports.com/nfl/tampa-bay-buccaneers-team-stats?season=2018&week=100&category=RECEIVING
  24. Of course you are entitled to your opinion Trini however I am not changing mine. I could list the reasons why but it would be irrelevant to you because your mind is already made up. You have your opinion and I have mine. I personally hope that Wentz throws Jackson a deep ball once a quarter. Just remember though, we won a Super Bowl without him.
