Default Re: Defensive backfield eval

Now... to the CONTENT of the post.

This was part of a series comparing the various position units within the AFC South and ranking them. It was interesting to go through and see how they had us ranked:

Coaches: Colts, Texans, Titans, Jags
DB: Texans, Titans, Colts, Jags
LB: Texans, Colts, Titans, Jags
DL: Texans, Titans, Jags, Colts

OL: Titans, Texans, Jags, Colts
TE: Colts, Titans, Texans, Jags
WR: Texans, Colts, Titans, Jags
RB: Texans, Titans, Jags, Colts
QB: Colts, Texans, Titans, Jags


What has Pagano done? That coaching job last year was on Arians as far as I'm concerned. When Pagano came back, the wheels came off. I have Kubiak as the best coach in the AFC South until someone else does something.

I think OD and GG are under-rated.

The right side of the line combined with all the moves the Titans made this offseason killed us on the OL ranking.

Forget MB Etiquette for a second.

Why would you go to all the trouble of documenting information that you find interesting and obviously believe other people might also, and then not take the 5 seconds (Okay, in reality, probably more like 2 or 3) to make it a bit easier to read and understand?

Even if it's only a little bit easier, and even if it's only some of the people, you're the one saying it's interesting/relevant/persuasive - why not make it easier to get your point across to everyone?

I agree. No way we have the third best TEs of the bunch.

WR.... I love me some Aj & he's the best of the whole group, I think, hands down. But I don't believe we have the best group. I'd give that one to the Colts.

I also think we have the best QB. Luck might have more potential, but Schaub's a better QB right now & you're sucking some serious eggs if you don't think so.

It's not even a second. You click the button, then right click & past like you were going to do any way.

I had to LOL at that; funny sheez!

I like TPN and badboy both; after a long while, you just know to expect the different styles.

One is an aspired writer, the other goes for the simplicity of a unique thought of the moment.

Because I felt I had identified an article, provided a link to said article, identified what I was posting as snippets from the article which in my mind shows I did not write the second snippet and both snippets were in quotes. I have read my OP several times and do not see how anyone could possibly believe I was the author of the second quote especially as I identified it as Kuharsky's.

This is the point I and others made on Infantrycak's thread on "etiquette". I am on MB to get and give info and read opinions. I am not on here to be concerned about your (anyone) "cringes" on grammer or punctuation. There are examples of extremely poor spelling or misuse of language but if I can understand the message, I will either consider it or not. I have posted this way since I came onto board. TK and Pencilneck have pointed out a technique that I can use and I will try to do so if I remember. It is not a big deal for me if I do not.

When I posted, I did think it was easy to read and understand. Others in this thread have found it readable and understood. I am not a professional writer nor have I claimed to be. I find info I think others may find useful or interesting and might initiate discussion. Some of you choose to discuss the way I post rather than what is being said. Your choice.

The part you identified as Kuharsky was outside of a quote.

Quote:
I'm going to write some quoted material.

"Here's some quoted material."

But as for me... (Paul Kuharskey)

"Some more stuff."
When the "But as for me" is outside of a quote, it means that YOU are the writer. Putting "(Paul Kuharskey)" there doesn't identify it as being inside a quote, it identifies you as being Paul Kuharskey (the "me" in the quote.) You can't see that?

The only thing that's being asked is that when you copy and paste something into a message, just click on the quote button. It doesn't matter about this particular post, it's about the future and the past. It's not hard to do and it will save on a lot of miscommunication in the future.
