(Yeah, but Russell is far from being a pure pocket-passer!  The boy knows how to roll out and scramble, either to find the open man, or advance it himself.  He’s not NFL tall – he’s only 5’11” – but he’s cagy, like Doug Flutie was.  Now, the Seahawks could employ this tactic against Denver, but Peyton IS NFL tall – 6’5″ –  so he can usually throw over the defenders.  But, if Peyton’s pocket collapses . . . he could be toast!  This should be a real battle, folks!

We have a new clue word today, in “shabby”!  ralis95 is going to have to fire up that old Commodore 64, and update his clue word database!    Just kidding, boss!  I liked the jumbling of “potent” and “lotion” too.  Fantastic answer letter layout!  I really had to play with it some to come up with the answer.  The “Z” was the big factor for me.  I figured that last word had to be “zone”.  Great cartoon, and a great Jumble!  If you go out to a Super Bowl party, and drink, give yourself ample time to sober up before hitting the road again.  Better yet, have a designated driver.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I’m not really a fan of words like “sin” and “evil”.  They’re too fraught with emotion.  They are not rational words.  But historically, mankind has needed to set various boundaries, whether to advance civilization, or just to keep us from falling into total anarchy.  It started with spiritualism and religion, but it eventually evolved into laws and governments.  We certainly don’t want to live under conditions of the Spanish Inquisition, but we also can’t live under the conditions of Caligula.  We have to be rational enough, mature enough, and flexible enough to find some kind of middle ground.  Be well . . . be objective and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
