    AP reports former Indianapolis Colts SS/FS Dexter Reid was arrested Thursday on a fugitive warrant stemming from a gun charge in Virginia Beach. Police charged the 26-year-old Norfolk native with two felony counts of illegal weapon possession. Reid attracted police attention after parking his car illegally in a handicapped space at a fast food restaurant, said Christi Golden, a Chesapeake police spokeswoman. Police observed a handgun under an envelope in the 2000 Cadillac sedan after Reid gave them permission to move his car to avoid additional fines. Police said they also found a loaded AK semiautomatic pistol in the trunk. A records check later indicated an outstanding warrant from Virginia Beach, police said. Reid, of Chesapeake, was indicted in Virginia Beach earlier this month on a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon. In June, a Virginia Beach grand jury indicted Reid on a felony charge of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute. He is set to stand trial on that charge Oct. 9. The New England Patriots drafted Reid in the fourth round in 2004. He was part of the Patriots' Super Bowl-winning team in 2005 and earned a second ring as part of the Colts this year. The Colts released him shortly after February's Super Bowl win.

    I actually shot AK-47s in south asia and they are better than our M-16s. I could definitely see why he would want one but I do think he needs to learn the laws of this country.

    The question is why would he need an AK-47 at a fast food joint. Was he that offended by the burnt fries?

    I wonder what old Dexter scored on his wonderlic test,it couldn't have been over 5. How does someone get busted for illegal possesion of a concealed weapon,and weed. Then not just carry a a couple of guns illegaly again but allow a cop to get in his car with the guns. Like you said either he's an acute dumbazz, or he's on a high, high. :confused:

    His score was 18. It's at the lower end, but given that the Pats '04 draft class wasn't the most cranial crew (Wilfork scored a 10, Hill 13, Cedric Cobbs 14, Guss Scott 17) with the exception of Watson at 41, Reid falls somewhere in the middle of the pact.

    I've shot both and feel th AK is superior at a shorter range it has more "penatration and knock down power" because of the heavier bullet. I thought it handled better and was easier to point on target.I had no trouble with accuracy,and because there built with much losser tolerances than an M16 they jam LESS in poor conditions like mud, sand,and dirt. There built for low maintanance and rough use. I would think it would be ideal in an urban setting.

    I think the AK47 is considered more reliable compared to the originally issued M16. And there were the self cleaning issues/jamming in Vietnam for the Americans.

    We should ask our #1 draft pick. He may have some insight.

    If being a douche bag was a crime he'd get life, so I hope he gets the book thrown at him for being a loud mouth jack ass.

    I did too, and they were hardly better. Cheaply made and inaccurate. Like saying a hot dog is better than a NY strip steak.

    Firing a heavier bullet does not make a weapon better. By that logic, a Sharps 45/70 would have been superior to both the AK-47 and M-16 in combat. The AK-47 was a piece of crap that fired a projectile larger than the M-16 did.

    The advantage of the AK-47 is that it could be made very cheaply, and therefore you could substitute quantity for quality

    Great, great memory. Great clip.

    Example A (unless he was a frosh at the time) that he wasn't NFL grade. Poor motivation, poor set up, poor execution, just plain poor.

    RayClay, I don't agree with you often, but this was a perfect 10. Great, great, great timing in combining a little fun for our pleasure at the expense of a guy who is missing the points.

    PS: Is there any irony in guys debating the validity of mass-killing machines whilst expounding, secondarily, their moral/intellectual superiority over another who used it in an "unintended" manner?

    I think you guys might be missing the point of this thread. Not that I want to mess with you or anything. ;)

    Good one.

    But seriously, folks, this latest episode involving Reid underscores the unfortunate fact that, aside from Wilfork and, to a much lesser extent, Watson, the 2004 draft was an inexplicable, Grier-esque disaster. What is esp. puzzling is that just one year earlier, the NEP had one of the better drafts in its history, at least in the BB/SP era (Bethel Johnson and the overdrafting/misuse of Dan Klecko notwithstanding). The lack of quality depth at DB and LB in the AFCC can partly be traced back to that weekend in late April of 2004. What should have been a group of 3rd-year players who were ready to contribute, instead became Eric Alexander, Corey Mays, Rashad Baker and Antwain Spann...who are all still here. Is the 2007 draft headed in the same direction? I hope not, but...
