  • A Red/Blue Survey To Prove We're (Mostly) All Purple

    Today's vernacular uses the term "Red States" and "Blue States" to divide Americans into ideological categories.

    My opinion is that very few fit into the Conservative Red State or Liberal Blue State categories accross the board, particularly when it comes to social issues.

    To prove my point, I've devised a simple survey. Now, read the next part carefully - this is important.

    DO NOT ANSWER THE QUESTIONS. JUST READ THEM AND TELL ME HOW MANY BLUE ANSWERS AND HOW MANY RED ANSWERS FIT YOUR VIEWPOINTS. IF YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS (WHICH ARE CONTROVERSIAL IN NATURE), I WILL DELETE YOUR RESPONSE.

    Now, here's the survey:

    THE "ARE YOU RED, BLUE, OR PURPLE" SURVEY

    1. Abortion. I am PRO LIFE/PRO CHOICE

    2. Capital Punishment should be: PART OF THE SYSTEM/ABOLISHED.

    3. Gay Marriage: SHOULD BE BANNED/SHOULD BE ALLOWED

    4. Flag Burning: SHOULD BE BANNED/SHOULD BE ALLOWED

    5. School Prayer: SHOULD BE ALLOWED/SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED

    6. School Vouchers: GOOD IDEA/BAD IDEA

    7. Unions: MORE OFTEN BAD FOR WORKPLACE/MORE OFTEN GOOD FOR WORKPLACE

    8. Gun Control: TOO RESTRICTIVE/NOT RESTRICTIVE ENOUGH

              Sorry to be the right-wing nut, but.......

              RED across the board
              The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                Well, I did say that I thought it would prove that we're mostly all purple. There are always exceptions, and most will lean to one side or another.

                  uh this was really confusing to me, cuz in canada, red is liberal and blue is conservative

                    Re: A Red/Blue Survey To Prove We're (Mostly) All Purple

                    6 blue
                    2 red

                    Question though - Shouldnt all of your choices be the same? All "should" blue & all "should not" red? Some seemed out of place.

                      5-1/2 red. One of those I am still debating on.

                        Um... no... the colors denote the side of the political spectrum the answers represent.

                          At least a couple of the questions don't work. For instance, while most conservatives favor school vouchers, a substantial number of conservatives fear that vouchers would lead to more government control of private and home schools. Therefore, the "reddest" voters might give the same answer as the blue voter, though for different reasons.

                            5 red
                            3 blue

                            And people wonder why I don't think our current political system works. Sure would like to see and hear people's ideas, rather than political parties values.

                                I'm starting a new organization!
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                The time has come for the Rams to embrace a new leadership. We must unite under one flag and let the Front Office know just who it is we want. As fans, this is our responsibility. We can remain silent, no more!!!

                                So, I ask you to all join me in the formation of the:

                                Society to Land the Oklahoma Prize.

                                That's right... we will join together in the great movement that will hereafter be known as...

                                SLOP!!!!!

                                Oh...

                                Wait a minute...

                                Never mind.

                                Forget I said anything.

                                *Final* AR Complete Round 1 Mock
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                This is my story, and I'm sticking to it!

                                1. Houston Texans: Reggie Bush, RB, USC
                                Don't be fooled by reports of negotiations with Mario Williams. He's just a pawn to get Bush's price down a bit. Bush is the "can't not take this guy" prospect in this draft.

                                2. New Orleans: Mario Williams, DE, NC State

                                Saints will get a guy who will be an impact rookie, and will a Pro Bowl selection within a few years. OTs in the NFC South will hate this pick.

                                3. Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB, Texas
                                For months, everyone has tried to find a reason to downgrade Young. The bottom line is, he's an exceptional performer on the football field, which is all that really should matter.

                                4. New York Jets: Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
                                D'Brickashaw Ferguson would be the safer and, perhaps, the more logical choice, but the Jets are still a Broadway team, and Davis will make a lot more highlight film plays.

                                5. Green Bay Packers: A.J. Hawk, OLB, OhioState
                                With Williams gone, they will select the top remaining defensive player in the draft. Will be an instant impact player for the Packers.

                                6. San Francisco Niners: Michael Huff, DB, Texas
                                Niners will be a bit thrown by the selection of Davis at number 4, as he was likely their target. Huff will be touted as the next Ronnie Lott, though he's a different type of player.

                                7. Oakland Raiders: Matt Leinart, QB, USC
                                Leinart would have been the first pick in 2005, but he'll drop to number 7 in this draft. No problem – with his Hollywood image, he'll make up the money in endorsement contracts.

                                8. Buffalo Bills: D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
                                Bills are surprised by Ferguson's fall, and will eagerly snatch him up. He'll start as a rookie, obviously.

                                9. Detroit Lions: Antonio Cromartie, DB, FSU
                                There always seem to be surprises coming out of Detroit, and this year is no exception. Cromartie's stock has been shooting up in recent weeks following his workout.

                                10. Arizona Cardinals: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
                                Many teams (not the Rams, though) will try to trade up for Cutler but, in the end, he'll head to the Southwest to be Kurt Warner's short-term understudy.

                                11. St. Louis Rams: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
                                Pickett, Lewis, Kennedy… will four times be the charm? Ram fans hope so, and Ngata is certainly a good prospect. Maybe the best prospect of the bunch.

                                12. Cleveland Browns: Brodrick Bunkley, DT, FSU
                                Fast rising Bunkley will be a welcome addition in Cleveland. They would have been happy with Ngata too.

                                13. Baltimore Ravens: Winston Justice, OT, USC
                                Will be a good RT initially, and will be the heir apparent to Jonathan Ogden, who is now 32. A good value pick.

                                14. Philadelphia Eagles: Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
                                While Eagles didn't miss TO's BS, they missed his...

                                Multiple notes on Ram players from the Sporting News
                                by RamsSB99
                                Steven Jackson RB Jan. 20, 1:00 p.m.
                                New Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo says his offensive philosophy is to "to be able to run the football and protect the quarterback."

                                Fantasy spin: The Rams' best player is Steven Jackson, so it's sensible to make him the focus of the offense. But St. Louis also plays in a pass-friendly dome and S-Jax is an outstanding pass catcher. A three yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust philosophy wouldn't necessarily play to the Rams' organizational strengths.


                                Chris Long DE Jan. 8, 3:46 p.m.
                                Chris Long finished his rookie season with 16 quarterback pressures, 57 tackles, and four sacks.

                                Fantasy spin: While Long faded after a strong first half, the high amount of pressures bodes very well for a big sack increase in '09. Defensive end is a tough spot for rookies and Long acquitted himself just fine. Better tackle play next to him would also help.


                                Torry Holt WR Jan. 6, 3:29 p.m.
                                Torry Holt holds a $10.205 million salary cap number in 2009.

                                Fantasy spin: The Rams can forget about Holt restructuring because he wants out of St. Louis. If they cut or trade Holt, only $2.2 million will be left in "dead money." As usual, the Rams aren't in great cap condition and have several key players on defense to re-sign, so there's a good chance that Holt will be gone.


                                Marc Bulger QB Jan. 5, 4:32 p.m.
                                The Rams would take nearly a $10 million salary cap hit to release Marc Bulger this offseason.

                                Fantasy spin: According to beat writer Steve Korte, Bulger's contract "guarantees that he'll be back next season as the team's starter." The Rams might use a draft pick on a QB in April, but they're not expected to do so in the early rounds due to their many needs elsewhere. Outside of Detroit and maybe Kansas City, there isn't a roster in the league with less talent signed through 2009.

                                The Rams are not expected to retain SS Corey Chavous in 2009.

                                Fantasy spin: Chavous, who will turn 33 on Monday, would only be worth a roster spot if he redid his deal to the veteran's minimum. Though still a good locker room presence, he lost his starting job late in the year and can't cover anymore.


                                Drew Bennett WR Jan. 4, 12:31 p.m.
                                Drew Bennett will likely be back with the Rams in 2009, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

                                Fantasy spin: The Post-Dispatch cites "cap concerns" as the reason why Bennett will be kept, but cutting him wouldn't cause a major hit. It would be nice if Bennett agreed to redo his contract after being a complete bust as a free agent signing before the '07 season. He only caught one pass for four yards in 2008.

                                Is the QB position the most important?

                                It seems to be an ongoing argument here at the clam....

                                So I've decided to breakdown each division to identify which team has the more productive/talented QB. Then review which teams were playoff contenders and how the average to below average teams faired.

                                Patriots -- Brady
                                Jets -- Sanchez
                                Dolphins -- Henne
                                Bills -- ? Edwards
                                -----------------------

                                Bengals -- Palmer
                                Ravens -- Flacco
                                Steelers -- Big Ben
                                Browns -- Quinn

                                Chargers -- Rivers

                                Eagles -- McNabb
                                Giants -- Manning
                                Redskins -- Campbell
                                ------------------------

                                Saints -- Brees
                                Falcons -- Ryan
                                Panthers -- Moore
                                Bucaneers -- Freeman?

                                Vickings -- Favre

                                Cardinals -- Warner
                                Whinners -- Smith
                                Hawks -- Hasselbeck
                                Rams -- Bulger

                                Playoff teams and QB

                                Jets -- Sanchez
                                Bengals -- Palmer
                                Ravens -- Flacco
                                Patriots -- Brady
                                Colts -- Manning
                                Chargers -- Rivers

                                Eagles -- McNabb
                                Cowboys -- Romo
                                Packers -- Rodgers
                                Cardinals -- Warner
                                Vickings -- Favre
                                Saints -- Brees

                                Hate to say it folks but it seems the majority of times that the teams with the best QB in thier division make the playoffs.
