ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:50 PM) Well that definitely opens the door for CJ Spiller to the JETS now that the Jills got Shady
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:12 AM) Spiller is a joke. 99 % of the time he gets tackled for a loss or a 1 or 2 yard gain maximum. He breaks a run here and there. he had one good year in his whole career. their is a reason he is a backup and not the starter. I suggest you guys that believe Spiller has anything to offer go through the play by play game logs. I did and he is horrendous.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:14 AM) Spiller cannot break a tackle period. I broke down last years game logs of his runs in a thread last year. He isn't even a pass catching rb. Fred Jackson catches most of the running back passes.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:20 AM) Unless Spiller comes tremendously cheap no thank you. Wouldn't pay more than a one year deal worth 1 million at most. All he has is speed. Not even on Sproles level. His stats are inflated. For instance he has 10 runs in a game and 9 of them are losses are or 1-2 yard runs. Then he breaks one on the outside for 40-70 yards. Not reliable at all. Even when he break one he is guaranteed a td
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:21 AM) Even in his 1200 yard rushing year he only had 6 tds rushing and 2 receiving
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:23 AM) Spiller is only valuable as a special teams player. Period By year 2010 ) tds rshng 1 rcvng 283 yards rshng
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:31 AM) meant 0 tds rushing in 2010, 2011 4 tds 561 yards rushing 2tds receiving, 2012 6tds 1244 rushing 2 tds receiving, 2013 2tds 933 yards rushing 0tds receiving, 2014 0tds 300 yards rushing 1td receiving.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 05:41 AM) His stats look decent on paper but if you actually go through the game logs of his career like I did his stats are extremely inflated. For instance one game last year he had 10 attempts for 8 yards another 4 attempts for -4 yards, another 6 attempts for 19 yards, another 10 attempts for 25 yards.Another game he had 12 games for 69 yards but 47 of it was on one play. Point is he sucks as a running back. Who wants a rb that gets stopped 99% of the time and breaks one play fir a long run. We need reliable backs not a slim chance of him breaking one

How student debt is hurting our economy

Quote

Nearly 42 percent of 25-year-olds have student debt. That's bad news for the housing and auto industries

Student debt is climbing and dragging our economy down in the process, according to a new report by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

In 2002, 25 percent of 25-year-olds had student debt. In 2012, that number jumped to 42 percent, with the average amount of debt ringing in at $20,326. The result? Young people are much less likely to buy a home or car.


For a long time, people with student debt were actually more likely to take out a home mortgage or auto loan than those who didn't because, as college graduates, they made more money. That all changed after the start of the Great Recession.

Now it's the opposite: Young people with student debt are taking out fewer house and car loans than those without. The Washington Post's Brad Plumer breaks down why this might be happening:


One possibility is that younger Americans burdened by heavy student loans are simply unwilling to take on further debt. Perhaps they're worried about their future job and income prospects, especially in this dismal economy. (Remember, students who are unlucky enough to graduate during the recession typically have lower lifetime earnings.)

Another (related) possibility is that lenders are becoming stingier. There's decent evidence for this: The study finds that younger Americans with student debt have seen their credit risk scores plummet relative to those without. Banks and other lenders seem to be scared away from people with student loans — especially since delinquency rates are rising. [Washington Post]

As Bloomberg's Kathleen Howley points out, many students were forced into student debt because, after the housing crash, their parents could no longer take out big home equity loans to pay for college. This vicious cycle has resulted in the home ownership rate dipping to 65.4 percent, its lowest level since 1997.

In his budget, President Obama proposed tying student loans to the rate on a 10-year Treasury bond, which, according to Businessweek, would bring subsidized, unsubsidized, and grad school loan rates down significantly (provided the economy doesn't pick up). He also wants to expand the program that caps loan payments at 10 percent of a person's income.

Of course, that all depends on the White House and Congress actually agreeing on something. For now, it looks like 20-somethings aren't likely to get out of debt anytime soon.

Kinda an interesting read for those with financial interests.

I disagree with this statement

Banks have opened the door again to alot of lending since the original housing crash. Most standards for loan origination have relaxed for not only consumer but for business as well. I think where this writer was confused is with debt ratio. Most banks (for portfolio or saleable) are looking for a debt ratio of 45% or less. When you factor in the 100s of dollars of student loan payments per month and the decreased income we are all feeling this makes debt ratios the real problem not the banks "stingy" lending practices. Also when an underwriter looks at a application a debt is a debt. It all goes towards the ratio. Dollars paying Student loans, Medical, consumer or mortgage loans are all equal. A dollar is a dollar.

I dont know if any of you listen to Clark Howard but he is 100% against taking out a loan to pay for school. Alot of financial people agree. He would rather you pay as you go. Work more take less classes take more time to earn a degree and not have this debt over your head for 10-15 years or more. Makes alot of sense unless your degree will guarantee a high paying profession in a high demand field, Like maybe a doctor, nurse practitioner etc. Where you can pay them back quickly.

Obama wanting to tie the market to the rate is a bad idea in the long term. I am all for lowering rates but it needs to be fixed. It may save money now but rates can only go up from here so what would your interest rate be in 3 years? Setting up another bubble to break in the future when the rates shoots up and people cant afford the 20% rate on there $40K in loans. There would need to be a cap and a floor on the rate. The problem is it would make it a undesirable loan for banks. Also keep in mind that a bank will view a loan without a fixed rate as a higher risk (credit card line of credits etc). This would also hurt your debt ratio since they may (and probably will) use a higher payment than what your payment actually is since they have to account for the rate adjusting. Anyway... Good read but I have some different views.

The real problem isn't student loan debt but rising tuition costs. Students are taking out larger loans because they're paying more in tuition. If we (as a nation) paid 100% of the tuition costs for every student that goes to a public university or community college, there wouldn't be a student debt crisis. Student loans should be just for people who want to go to a private university. We already fund K-12 education. We might as well just extend it right through college too.

But of course we can't do that because we have to continue to fight the Cold War (which ended decades ago) and give the Department of Defensive an unnecessarily large budget.

Yup, but we can push it even further down the river if we want to. We could say that there are not enough quality Schools to push the cost of tuition down.

I would much rather pay for school over a war but I would rather just lower taxes overall. The thing about sending everyone to school is that those who can afford it would go to the next step creating his whole problem again but with even more expense.

I don't think more tax cuts is the answer to this problem. Especially when one of the main reasons tuition has gone up is because states have cut funding to the public universities.

You have a valid point. I think if everyone has the same opportunity cost free the people who can afford it will do extra to get an edge. Then we are back in the same boat in a few years. When is enough enough?

There are many more people who can't afford it than people who can. The people who can afford tuition (because of Mom and Dad) usually have things like legacies helping them and could afford to go to a private university if they wanted to. Like I said if we cut some things (like a good chunk of the DoD's budget), we could at the very least keep the states from feeling the need to cut funding to the public universities, which would help keep tuition from going up. Thus getting rid of the student loan crisis. High administration costs at these universities aren't helping matters either.

I don't know if it would get rid of loans though. Unless there were no lending for school. In our culture it's never enough. I don't know about where you are but "legacy" money is not real big in the areas I have lived and worked in finance. Nursing homes final medical etc..pretty much wipe it out

Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants student loans to get Fed discount rate

By Jim Puzzanghera
10:31 AM PDT, May 8, 2013

WASHINGTON -- Students taking out government loans to help pay for college should pay the same rock-bottom interest rate that the Federal Reserve charges big banks, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) proposed Wednesday.

With the interest rate on federal student loans set to double to 6.8% this summer, Warren said it's unfair that big banks can borrow money at 0.75% from the central bank's discount window.

"In other words, the federal government’s going to charge interest rates nine times higher than the rates they charge the biggest banks -- the same banks that destroyed millions of jobs and nearly broke the economy," Warren said in introducing her first stand-alone bill since taking office in January.

"That isn't right," she said.

Warren, a longtime consumer advocate, defeated incumbent Republican Scott Brown in November in the nation's most expensive Senate race. She won with strong backing from liberals, who cheered her embrace of the Occupy Wall Street movement and outspoken criticism of big banks. Warren's first bill, which likely stands little chance of passage, takes a swipe at Wall Street while advocating for more government help for average Americans.

Warren acknowledged that the Fed's policy, which also includes a near-0% federal funds rate, is designed to help boost the economy by providing cheap credit.
But, she said, "our students are just as important to the economic recovery as our banks." "Let's face it: Banks get a great deal when they borrow money from the Fed," she said. "In effect, the American taxpayer is investing in those banks." "We should make the same kind of investment in our young people who are trying to get an education," Warren said. The Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act would direct the Fed to make money available to the Education Department for one year at the discount window rate to fund federally subsidized Stafford student loans.
