    Sigh...why do people argue with the History Prof.

    AD does NOT stand for "After Death". It's for "Anno Domini", which is Latin for Year of Our Lord (or something close to that). Although most people that Christ was likely born around 33 AD, this was a misjudgement at the time and was later adopted by the Gregorian model which is standard for most calendars throughout the Western World.

        Yes because a guy with the name Adrian has more of a right to it the a guy named Adalius......................... :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

              You're partially correct.

              He was born around 6 BC, and that therefore was the misjudgment at the time. 33 AD is around when he would have died if he was actually born at 1 AD, meaning he probably died in the late 20s AD.

                So is there a real reason?
                I just think its because his name is ADalius Thomas. Not positive though never really looked into it.
                That's all I could think of. What's wrong with AT? AD sounds like a cheap rip off of Peterson.
                Yeah except for the fact that hes been called AD since hes been a raven. Why doesnt Adrian Peterson just call himself AP. AD sounds like a cheap rip off of Adalius.
                Since he has been a Raven? Peterson gained the nickname "All Day" when he was a child I believe, for his hyper-activity.

                  I read in an interview that Adrian Peterson's parents called him "All Day" since he was two years old.

                    It's a nickname, who cares? Can Ladanian Tomlinson not be called LT?

                      I just realized that I want the Ravens to resign him. Then we won't have to play him for like 3-4 years. There's no chance he ever goes to Tampa unless he wants to play DE anyway.

                      Teams that might sign him (3-4 teams):
                      Pittsburgh (doubtful, they have 2 OLBs)
                      Cleveland (always in the market)
                      Dallas (don't have money I don't think)
                      San Francisco (most likely IMO)
                      San Diego (no chance, they have starters set)
                      New England (never shell out the dough, so no)
                      NY Jets (very possible, they need him)
                      Miami (they have a similar defense to Baltimore, so maybe)

                          Is that it? Ok then. Obviously this is all speculative anyway, as there is no verifiable historical evidence of the life of Jesus.

                            Rumor is he's #1 on the Packers wishlist and I'm very excited to see what happens. Rex Grossman won't be able to breathe if we add him to our front 7. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

                              BREAKING NEWS: RAMS AGREE TO TERMS WITH RAVENS ADALIUS THOMAS!


                              Rams | Rams agree to terms with A. Thomas
                              Wed, 21 Feb 2007 09:56:23 -0800

                              Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports the St. Louis Rams have agreed to terms with free agent LB Adalius Thomas (Ravens). Thomas is expected to sign when Free Agency begins March 1st.






                              Ok, maybe not but that'd be sweet if the Rams signed him.

                                hmm

                                I think if Adalius leaves Baltimore should sign Jesus Christ to play his spot on the LB core. He's pretty versatile...
