    Colts at Titans tonight. Jake Locker is out for the rest of the season. The injuries to the Colts near coal black team are catching up. Overall not really an interesting game from the caste perspective.

    Still be good to watch Andrew Luck show why he is a top 5 quarter back and is head and shoulders above RG3 and the like!! Plus Paul Angerer and Coby Fleener should be bright spots for the Colts.

    Over the past three seasons, the Colts have become a Casteon franchise. Once a destination for white offensive lineman, WR’s (Brandon Stokley, Sam Giguere, Anthony Gonzalez, Austin Collie, Blair White), TE’s (Dallas Clark, Tom Tanti, Jacob Tamme, Ben Utecht, Brody Eldridge) and safeties (Tom Zbikowski, Jamie Silva, Matt Giordano), the team is now nearly all-chocolate at every position.

    Aside from Luck, the criminally-underutilized Fleener, Angerer/Werner on defense, I have a strong dislike for this squad.

    didn't know the Poz was questionable for this week

    Advice: Posluszny went down late in the win over the Titans. His inability to get cleared for practice Wednesday clouds his availability for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Posluszny is a far better IDP linebacker than real-life option,racking up 9.7 tackles per game this season with one sack, one forced fumble and two interceptions

    What? how is that not great in real life? Just when I think I have heard it all.

    I agree. The decision to give a 1st round pick for Trent Richardson instead of getting Gerhart for a low round pick was the nail in the coffin for the Colts.

    I agree that the Colts are a far from a white friendly team but i do enjoy watching Luck he is awesome! I think after Brady Manning and Brees, Luck is right up there!!

    Also, it seems as if the Colts have been using Whalen the WR a fair amount in the last couple of games. It would be nice if Devon Wylie is on the field for the Titans as well.

    Another putrid NFL game. The referees have been extraordinarily active so far; I believe on the Titans' last "drive," there were 41 yards "gained" by various penalties.

    Unless I've missed something, Coby Fleener has exactly one target in the first half. How can his college QB not instinctively look for him more? Instead, he lavished two targets in a row on yet another nondescript black TE, who predictably dropped the second. As Thrashen has noted, Fleener is criminally underused, especially with Wayne out.

    Trent Richardson may be the worst, highly touted RB I've ever seen. He has done the seemingly impossible, and made Donald Brown look like a Hall of Famer by comparison. You know you're an awful organization when you let the likes of Michael Lombardi take advantage of you.

    I love Luck, and Fleener, and it's nice to see Whalen getting to play. But their coach is as moronic as any of the other glorified gym coaches in this corrupt league, and their management being idiotic enough to give up a #1 pick for Richardson, and continuing to play the likes of Heyward-Bey, makes them very difficult to like.

    Patience, career high of receptions and yards for Fleener right now. 8 receptions 100+ yards, 10 targets, leading the team.

    Richardson is terrible, but all it will take is one good performance for fans to be oohing and ahhing. Like Mark Ingram having his 1st 100 yard game in his career last week against depleted defense of the Cowboys, where he was getting holes you could drive a truck through, people are saying "he's finally living up to his 1st round pick", really ONE game?

    Luck running better than Richardson, who is averaging 2.8 ypc. Luck even scored, but he supposedly isn't "mobile", on pace for 400 yards 6 tds rushing when not given designed rushing plays.

    This might have been the most interesting Thursday night game so far this season, but that isn't saying much. Do they really expect us to buy NFL Network to watch these games?

    Bigunreal you ranted too soon. Fleener had a great night. What game were you watching?

    Trent Richardson is definitely a waste of Colt money.

    In watching Indianapolis' Sunday debacle versus the Rams, and last night's victory over Tennessee, I noticed that—yeah—the Colts had definitely been Whiter during a lot of the Manning era, but there are still several notable Whites on the roster for whom we can root.

    Anyway, in an ideal situation Andrew Luck would have even more White teammates, but as things stand, he's proof that even a racially-aware White person can root for a Blacker-than-ideal squad, so long as the LEADER (quarterback) is a strong, confident White. If the Colts had a Mudback throwing, then they'd be useless to watch.

    DWFs either don't notice, don't care, or will credit any team success or failure on Black skill or White incompetence anyway, so a gaggle of Black scrubs held together by a White brain and White rocket-arm is at least consolation for the Whites who have seen past the BS in this politically-skewed, not-always-a-meritocracy league.

    It has been shown time and time again that a dumba$sed, injured "star" Black quarterback can be successfully replaced by a White nobody and the team will hold down the fort or IMPROVE.

    How many times has the reverse been true? Where a supposedly good White QB went down, and got replaced by a Black QB who then went on to set the stats on fire?

    Well, there was that one time where... Or, maybe this other occasion when... But...

    Okay so, this is detective work.

    The bigunreal jinx not only works against Eldrick Woods, it works for football players too! Can you doom and gloom Hillis, Woodhead and Leonard in hopes that they have career games as well?

    You might be on to something here, Freethinker. No wonder Bigunreal is one of my favorite posters. I'm not sure if it's something that will only work with a game in progress, such as with Fleener, or if the rant would have the same effect beforehand. I'm leaning towards the former, as the Bigunreal rant always unravels Cheetah around halfway through a tournament.

    Interesting game last night. Luck did well. Finally hooking up with Fleener (107 yds reception) for a big game. Pat Angerer led Colts in tackles and Colin McCarthy led Titan in tackles. The only two White defenders on either team.

    I copied and pasted this from another website

    From what I've watched, the holes are there for Brown, but when Richardson gets the ball, the line gets blown up. It's weird.

    Pagano sees the same thing
    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...s-runs-i-dont-know-what-the-heck-is-going-on/


    It is actually incredibly simple.

    Due to Richardson's piss-poor vision and inability to suddenly change directions, he is not a threat at all to cut runs back. In fact, he seems to actively avoid the cutback run. NFL teams aren't stupid, the scouting book on Richardson is written and it states that he is not a threat to cutback. What therefore happens? Defenders completely ignore their back-end gap assignments when he receives the ball because they KNOW that whatever way Richardson starts running, he will continue to run that way. When a defense ignores their back-end gap assignments on a run play it doesn't matter if you have the freaking 90's Dallas Cowboys OL...you will not out-block a surplus amount of defenders, because a defense will bring more defenders than you have blockers. Teams continually do this to Richardson and will continue to do so until he starts making them pay. You see, most starting-caliber NFL backs have the ability to cut runs back if defenses get over-aggressive or if they are "cheating" to stop a run going in a particular direction. Because of this, defenders must always be wary of back-end gap control to prevent a potentially huge run on a cutback. What happens if you "cheat" trying to stop Adrian Peterson? He's going to cut the run back and go 30+ yards, or for a touchdown. What happens if you "cheat" trying to stop Trent Richardson? You blow the play up before it even starts because he refuses and/or simply cant make you pay for being over-aggressive.

    This is why the OL magically looks terrible run-blocking for Richardson, yet looks perfectly capable when it is Brown, or even Bradshaw in the backfield. If a team is "cheating" or "selling out" to stop a run going one direction, the OL really has no chance. It is up to the RB to make them pay for selling-out, until they start respecting back-end gap containment.

    Here is a perfect example of what I am talking about from last season with the Browns. Richardson has an absolutely giant cut-back in front of him that is good for an easy 7+ yards. Any RB worth a damn is going to see that hole and attack it. Instead; Richardson continues to run in the direction he started running and plows his way into a scrum of linemen (his own included) for what is at most a 1 yard gain:

    Gremlin is a loser. He doesn't know how to run an offense. He just runs like a moron.

    Foles runs one in for a touchdown. Was a pretty play but I flinch everytime I see one of our pocket QBs leave the pocket.

    Just checked the Oakland @ Houston statline. Keenum threw a pick unfortunately but McGloin has already thrown more TD passes in one game than Pryor has in the last 4 games.

    Celek gets 43 yards on a screen pass, the TD will probably not stand because he looks to have been tackled at the 1.

    Following the Eagles DWFs has become my new hobby. They have twisted themselves into knots the last two weeks, and Foles has now matched Vick for rushing touchdowns for the year! They cannot believe Celek showed speed. HAHAHAHA! This is fun. Yes, it's also sad, but it's not like I can change them.

    On the Eagles first possession Riley Cooper had the negro covering him burned with straight line speed, and the negro tried to tackle him while the ball was in the air. That slowed him down, and caused him to lose the ball. No flag was thrown, and the commentator explained that it "was a good no call". It was obvious P.I., and would have been about a 75 yard TD.

    It cannot be argued anymore that these refs arent instructed on these bogus calls, and no calls against white players. It just happens too much to be anything else.

    Barwin deflects an RGScreen pass and it's picked off. Looked like it also could have been ruled a strip sack.
