Your “Do What We Mean, Not What We Say” Thursday Evening Open Thread

NFL Notes: Well, today was Rules Committee day, and let's see what passed:  4th & 15 - PASSED TABLED! Not sure what the hell happened here, but apparently there was the belief that it would be the slippery slope towards eliminating kickoffs altogether. Like how electing Obama would make
