Weve read the calls to cut Daryl Washington You

first_imgWe’ve read the calls to cut Daryl Washington. You can find them here and here.We’ve also read why now is clearly not the time to do so.We all understand that “Next Man Up” is, A) the new sports cliché (mercifully replacing “It is what it is”) and B) certainly applies in this circumstance.The fundamental problem here is that the Cardinals must now replace their most irreplaceable player. Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Quick, name a player more valuable than Washington. Patrick Peterson? Calais Campbell? Larry Fitzgerald? Carson Palmer? If I were making a Guys-I-Can’t-Lose list, Daryl Washington would be at the top. It’s not meant as a slight to anyone else on the field. Football teams fail and succeed because of the collective effort, not the individual. Players work in concert with each other to make plays and win games. Yet I’m not certain there is another player on this roster whose absence affects that roster more than Washington. Speed. Instincts. Versatility. You just don’t have anything close in terms of an in-house or out-house solution to replicate that. ESPN Stats and Info points out that Washington is the only player in the NFL with 300 tackles and 15 sacks over the last three seasons. To compensate, the Cardinals might have to undergo a minor reinvention. The key to winning football games in Washington’s absence won’t fall on the recently-signed Ernie Sims. Or Larry Foote or Kevin Minter. It will fall on Palmer and Fitz. Michael Floyd and Andre Ellington. Palmer was quick to point out that the Cardinals’ defense carried this team last year and now it was time for a little quid pro quo. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The defense still has plenty of impact football players. But without the guy in the middle (literally and figuratively), the very identity of this team has to change. last_img read more

Closed with status Case Resolved Dear Constitue

first_img“Closed with status: Case Resolved. Dear Constituent,. Public Works plans on paving Hanover St from Commercial St to near Cross St this construction season. As you know Hanover St is in tough shape and definitely needs paving. In addition because of the festivals that happen during the Summer months the window for utility work and paving is limited between April and June and September to November. The City of Boston Public Works Department is responsible for clearing streets for paving. It takes very seriously its responsibility to have all proposed paving streets candidates thorough reviewed for any potential utility work before paving takes place. That’s why in 2010 the Public Works Department created online reservation software called The City of Boston Coordination Software (COBUCS). Before receiving a permit, every utility company, private contractor, site plan engineer, City Departments, and Public Works paving projects all have to enter their work into the COBUCS system. The COBUCS system will alert the City and permittees of potential conflicts this will allow coordination to take place that wasn’t done as successful before COBUCS. Since 2010 COBUCS has alerted the City of over 10,000 conflicts at a savings of over $40 million dollars of unnecessary paving fees if the street was cut after it was completed. No Street will be paved unless officially cleared through the COBUCS system. COBUCS told us to hold off paving Hanover St the last few years to allow BWSC and National Grid to install new mains. When we did a COBUCS review this spring we found that there were other permittees needing to do work first. This includes a cell phone provider Lightower as well as some service work requested by property owners. That’s the construction you are currently seeing on Hanover St. We don’t want that work to do be after we pave! In addition our sidewalk contractor Cicconi was out there trying to get the ramps done before paving begins. This has contributed towards everybody trying to get their work done before the festival season starts. Depending on what happens we may have to hold off paving until after the festival season. We are requiring the permittees to provide a weekly update to the Mayors Representative Maria Lanza. Maria can be reached at maria.lanza@boston.gov for the latest update of the construction. I hope this detailed explanation helps clarify your rightful frustration about all the construction taking place on Hanover St. Any questions or concerns you can contact the number listed below.
