Best USFL Football Coach Ever

The United States Football League produced a lot of great talent and some pretty good football games for its short life span from the 1983 season to the 1985 season. After the league disbanded, some USFL players and coaches continued to have very successful careers in the National Football League.

As with any league there is a range of athletic and coaching talent. Some players and coaches become huge stars, others play out their contracts and are never heard from again.

Move File to Another Folder Without Dragging

If you want to move a file to a folder without dragging it all over your PC screen, you have come to the right place. Dragging  is great when the file and folder are close in proximity to each other but if both are far apart or even in different drives, there is a much easier way to do this.

This article focuses on transferring files using Windows 7 though it might work on other versions.

Step 1

Navigate to the file or folder that you want to move but do not open it up.

Step 2

Left click once on the folder (again you don't want to open it). Right clicking works too but I prefer left clicking as you avoid an unnecessary menu. Try both ways and you'll see what I mean or just left click on it once.

Step 3

Look to the upper left side of the window that you have open (containing your files and folders). Find where it says "File and Folder Tasks"

Step 4

Below "File and Folder Tasks" you'll see a bunch of commands such as "Rename this...." "Move This...." "Copy This..." etc. If you are not seeing this, click the arrow button next to "File and Folder Tasks" and they'll appear.

Step 5

Choose "Move This....." (depending if you have clicked on a file or folder is will say "Move This File" or "Move This Folder"

Step 6

A "Move Items" window will open up. From here, navigate to the file or folder you want to move to and click the "Move" button. Your folder or file will move to that folder.

Hint: You can move multiple files or folders to the same folder by clicking / highlighting multiple ones while pressing the control button.

How to Safely Remove SD Card From LG Lucid Cell Phone

On the LG Lucid Cell phone you can install an external memory Sandisk ( SD ) card into the side of the cell phone. This will free up your wireless phone's internal 'stock' memory and allow you to store more data and transfer it to other devices.

If you remove ( ie dismount ) your SD card without putting the phone into a sort of 'safe' mode, you run the risk of corrupting the card. It could damage the card or erase everything you put on it.

To avoid corrupting anything, there are a few steps you can do will allow you to safely remove your memory card worry-free.

Step 1 - Go to the Home Screen of Your Cell Phone

Open up the home screen of your cell phone. You might be able to get there automatically when you turn your phone on, or if you aren't sure, press the little house button at the bottom of the LG Lucid phone.

Step 2 - Press the Menu Key

While in your home screen, open up the menu command. Do this by pushing that button with the square on it, down at the bottom of your cell phone.

Step 3 - Settings Icon

When the menu opens up, press the settings Icon. It will say "settings" and have a gear / sprocket icon.

Step 4 - Storage Icon

Scroll down the scree until you see the "storage" icon / button. Press it.

Step 5 - Unmount SD Card

In the next screen that appears, look for a button that says "Unmount SD Card - Unmount SD Card so you can safely remove it" Press it

Your Done!

You can now safely unmount your card from your smartphone

Best USFL Football Team Ever

For the purpose of this article I am strictly referring to the United States Football League (USFL) that existed for three seasons during the 1980's. If you were a sports fan from 1983-1985 you probably remember the USFL pretty well. It was one of the few professional football leagues besides the NFL that rose to some degree of prominence and respectability.

The USFL of course went out of business after a more or less failed attempt to collect anti-trust damages from the NFL but that doesn't mean that they did not create a legacy during their brief existence. There were plenty of incredible USFL teams out there. The New Jersey Generals were loaded with the talents of Doug Flutie and Hershel Walker in addition to plenty of other great players. They never made it to the USFL championship game but they were a force on the field.

The Michigan Panthers won the first USFL championship trophy but soon went out of business. The Arizona Wranglers and Oakland Invaders also had some great post-season moments.

With all that in mind, who was the best USFL team? Which team was the greatest USFL team ever? I have some thoughts and I suspect a lot of fans of the former league would feel the same way.

The Philadelphia / Baltimore Stars were the best United States Football League team ever. Why do I say that? We'll I generally love Philadelphia sports teams in general but that isn't the only reason or even the most important. The Stars existed in all three USFL seasons. During those seasons they had great, great success during the playoff season. They never lost one single playoff game and were a highly respected team around the league.

During the USFL's three seasons of play, the Stars played in all three Championship games. They lost the first game to the Michigan Panthers and then won the next two to the Arizona Wranglers and the Oakland Invaders. Few teams in any professional sports make it to three title games in a row and perhaps the Stars would have been a USFL dynasty with more consecutive titles if the league had existed past the 1985 season.

The Stars also left an NFL legacy. Head Coach Jim Mora went on to a respected NFL career as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints. Stars, star running back Kelvin Bryant played in the NFL as well as punter Shawn Landetta and linebacker Sam Mills. I'm sure I'm missing some other players and front office staff that graduated to the National Football League.

The Philadelphia / Baltimore Stars were the best USFL team ever. Their record book and legacy proves. it. What are your thoughts? Did you have a favorite United States Football League team? Let us know you thoughts. Would love to hear them.


Eagles Fire Juan Castillo Defensive Coach 2012

The news is out. The Eagles have fired defensive coach Juan Castillo today, October 16, 2012. I heard this reported today on Philly sports talk radio station WIP / WYSP

As of today's date the Juan Castillo's replacement will be Todd Bowles. Bowles was the defensive secondary coach for the Eagles.

Castillo was a offensive line coach until head coach Andy Reid decided to move him to defensive coordinator. Moving Castillo from offense to defense was full of controversy. Coach Reid was derided for putting what seemed to be an inexperienced person into a major NFL defensive role. At times Castillo seemed to struggle in press conferences on in on field decision making regarding the defense. Since day one as defensive coordinator, Castillo's performance was heavily scrutinized. It was said that to make up for his lack of experience, Castillo was working long, long nights and days putting together on the field defensive schemes and preparing for game day.

What are my thoughts? I think Reid had to finally do something to begin to shake up the Eagles 2012 season. Some early disappointing losses in the 2012 season likely put Reid's job in jeopardy and he had to make a move that I suspect also involved input from Eagles owner, Jeffrey Lurie.

Philadelphia fans should be relieved to have an NFL coach with experience on the defense. Some might argue that the Eagles secondary hasn't been living up to it's potential and that Eagles former secondary coach Todd Bowles might be a controversial decision as well. Overall, I think the team is due for a change and this is a move in the right direction.

On a side note, given Andy Reid's loyalty to his staff and his occasional stubbornness, the firing of Juan Castillo was very unexpected. I figured Castillo would be demoted and eventually buried, but employed, within the Eagles organization.

Where Do The Eagles Play? Lincoln Financial Field Review

Where Do The Eagles Play? Lincoln Financial Field Review

Each NFL team in the league plays its games in massive stadiums that hold thousands of fans, security, food staff, drink staff, coaches, players, maintenance, and a variety of other people that make a National Football League great.

There are many stadiums throughout the league and some are better than others. For those who grew up in the Philadelphia area you probably remember when JFK stadium and Veterans stadium were around. You probably think of them with some fond nostalgia but you probably don't miss them either. Catch a college game and JFK and you were a million miles from the field. It was a giant park with seating tiered so far away that you couldn't see much of anything if you got tickets far back from the action.

Veterans Stadium wasn't much better. I know that players and staff don't miss it. The astro turf was brutal as was the seating. "The Vet" , was designed to be a multipurpose stadium when it opened in the 70's. It was meant to showcase baseball games,football games, concerts and whatever else sport or event came along. The result was that no event was ideal to see in Veterans Stadium. The design of the facility tried to accomplish too much and as a result, accomplished little.

If you experienced the Vet and Haven't been to Lincoln Financial Field you are in for a treat. It is a terrific place to show case Philadelphia Eagles football at its best. There really is no bad seat in the place. Compared to The Vet, the games feel tight and intimate. This, of course, can be a problem if you are around unruly fans, which can happen in Philly. It is a tough town and their fans are even tougher. This stadium brings all that element closer together but as I say, take things with a grain of salt, be kind and all should be good... with some luck :-)

The field has come a long way too. No more astro turf. I can't say I've maintained any statistical record of this but I feel as though players suffer far less turf-related injuries at Lincoln Financial field (ie "The Linc") For this reason, I have to love this place even more. Football is a brutal game. No use making it worse with shoddy fields where guys can get hurt.

Getting to the Linc is real easy. Access from I 95 and 76 (ie the dreaded Schuylkill expressway :-) is pretty simple as far as directions go. Tons of traffic can does cause some delay while waiting to pay for parking, which is quite expensive so make sure you remember to bring extra loot for parking ( a cost I always seem to forget about until I get there ).

Parking is set up pretty well and you can usually get a spot within reasonable distance to the field. Keep in mind though there are tons of tailgaters out there partying it up in the lot so they might have spots claimed early.

So.... Where do the Eagles Play? That is, I should say...... Where do the Philadelphia Eagles Play? At Lincoln Financial Park in South Philadelphia.

Transfer Photos from LG Lucid Cell Phone to SD Sandisk Card

Is it Possible to Move Pictures Directly to SD Card From LG Lucid Phone?
I've been taking a lot of photos and videos lately on my LG Lucid smart phone and finally decided to move them from my phone to the Sandisk card that I inserted into the side of the phone.

On my old cell phone I would simply insert the SD card into the side of the phone, navigate to the pictures I wanted to transfer to the card, bring up the menu and select the "move" option that would then give me the option to move "to card" Then the pictures would copy from the phone onto the card. Pretty easy right? Should work the same on the LG Fusion right? Wrong.

It doesn't work the same on the Fusion, actually it doesn't work at all. That is, if you took pictures without your external memory card inserted into the phone, there appears to be no way to move these pictures from the phones 'stock' memory card to the external SD card you plugged in.

Verizon Wireless Could Not Answer How to Copy Pics from Phone to Card

There is no way I could believe that pics can not be transferred to the card. After all, you can plug your own memory card into the phone, so you should be able to move the pictures right?

I contacted Verizon Wireless support via email to hear their thoughts. Basically the only advice they could offer was to have me move the pictures to my computer, then to the memory card.    Their advice wasn't very helpful. I found the instructions to be difficult to follow and not very thorough. I could have used more detailed information on a lot of the steps they gave me. Plus, my purpose of transferring to memory card is so that I can eventually move to PC, not vice versa.

I Visited a Verizon Wireless Cell Phone Store

OK, I still didn't believe that it was impossible to move photos from cell phone memory to SD card so I went straight to a Verizon wireless store, waited the obligatory hour to be served and asked the customer service person what I should do.

The initial reaction of both guys in the store was that this should be simple to do. As they started to try this on my smart phone they too were in the some, complete disbelief as I was...... it can not be done. One of the guys went into the back to do some research, check manuals, etc but he could not find a way to copy pics to my card.

OK, So is there Another Way to Move Pics to Card to PC ?

Yes, sort of. I figured two options out,not exactly the solution I was looking for, but it seemed to work.

Fix Number One - Store Pictures Directly on Card

Instead of having your phone store the pictures on its internal memory, have your phone store pics directly on the memory card that you insert into the side of the phone. All you need to do it keep your external SD card inserted in your phone before you take any pictures or videos. They will store directly onto the card you inserted. When you are ready, you can remove the card and move right onto your PC. I keep my SD card inserted all the time know so I can do this easily.

Fix Number Two - Move Pictures Directly to Computer Using Charger

If your entire goal is to move pictures from phone to your computer you can skip worrying about a lot of fancy maneuvers with your SD card. What you can do instead is take some pictures and then plug your phone right into your PC using your charger. You know the charger that came with your LG Lucid wireless phone? If you look at the plug (the part you put into an outlet) on your charger, you'll see there is a USB connector integrated into the plug. The other end of the cable, plugs into your phone. Wait a few seconds and you computer will prompt you to transfer images to your PC.

The only problem I had with this, and you might have the fix to this, is that I was unable to selectively move pics from my phone to my PC. It moved all of them. I had pictures on my Lucid load onto my PC that I wasn't even aware I had. I basically opened the folder on my PC and deleted what I didn't want. 

If you have a better way of doing this, feel free to comment. Would love to hear it. Again, this worked great, its just that I got a bit more images than I bargained for.

I hope that helped you to Transfer Photos from LG Lucid Cell Phone to SD Sandisk Card.
