    took it out of my mouth. Jackson was a very solid back for Rams even under Bradford

    Austin has had at least three punt returns that have resulted in negative yardage. So much for that alleged elite speed.

    The Rams weren't supposed to miss losing Danny Amendola at all because Tavon Austin was sure to be even better. WRONG.

    Bradford has absolutely no receivers and a rather vanilla offense.

    If this year has shown anything it has shown that all those "over-rated" "system" white receivers are pretty important after all and difficult to replace.

    Staley looks to have a serious injury... and I don't give a ****. I'm not gonna root for a white player to get injured but I just despise the 49ers, one less whitey to help them is good in my book.

    Just another day at the office for James Laurinaitis -- 12 tackles including 9 solo, plus 2 passes defended.

    So if Staley is injured for a considerable amount of time the 49ers offensive line will probably end up 80% black/Somoan.

    It's funny how all the idiots were touting the two WRs Austin and Bailey as upgrades to Amendola. People were talking up this Rams offense all offseason - what a joke. Honestly, I am on the fence about Bradford - I always thought Landry Jones was better than him - the celebration of his indian heritage was also annoying.

    The Rams would be well served to sign Hillis who is a legitimate RB and the best available on the market and better than a great majority of running backs that are on NFL rosters.

    Didn't bother to watch this. Was the 175 yard 2 td performance enough to redeem the quotaback?
    as

    far as Bradford,he is average, I think he got artificially inflated similar to Mark Sanchez, they hyped up at what little indian heritage, part of him winning the Heisman instead of Tebow a second time even though he went up there saying he didn't know much about it, didn't stop him from getting an orange tan. He did run down db Roman Harper on what should have been a pick 6. Steven jackson one of the few backs that deserves credit. However, it seems like backs like him just get stuck in losing environments. Like coaches don't know what to do so they just feed them them the ball. LT didn't win anything, although he had a chance, his knee hurt so he sat on the sideline while Rivers played wo an acl. Only Sproles used, Hester sat on the bench. Peterson on losing teams, fumbled twice the one time they had Favre in the playoffs. MJD hasn't won anything. Gore has gotten the closest, and they rotate backs more often.

    +1 Mr. Wassall

    Jackson was a top RB even on some really bad teams over the years.Now that StL. doesn't have him it really would be a wise move to pick up Hillis or trade for Gerhart.If they did go for a RB something tells me that a bum like Wells will get the job before Hillis even if the big guy has a better try-out.

    As far as the game goes it was a decent waste of time.Loved the sack of Kap by Long,glad to see 9ers using the FB and 2ndTE,and i bet Bradford misses Danny.

    I have mixed feelings about Bradford also. Haven't really watched the Rams enough to form a definitive opinion on him and there has been a lot of turnover as far as coaches and schemes, and he's had to play behind an awful o-line until this season (at least in theory; the line was bad against SF tonight).

    I wish the organization would have stuck with Steve Spagnuolo as head coach. He's the one who gave Amendola an opportunity, and also had four and sometimes five White defensive starters. The Rams actually had a majority White defense on the field at times under Spagnuolo, as did Eric Mangini with the Browns at the same time (and it was Mangini of course who "allowed" Peyton Hillis to become the first White RB to go over 1,000 yards in a quarter century in 2010). Both coaches were making undeniable progress with teams that had been bottom feeders for a long time, and both were summarily dumped for reliable Caste System whores -- Mikey Holmgren in Cleveland (who completely ruined the team in no time flat), and Jeff Fisher in St. Louis.

    Fisher interestingly had his own brief "defiance" of Caste System norms in the mid-2000s when half of the defensive players on the Titans were White, while at the same time he was also playing WRs Drew Bennett and Eddie Berlin on offense. Berlin didn't play much, but an unstoppable Bennett tore up the league the second half of 2004 when Billy Volek replaced an injured Steve McNair, leading the AFC in receiving yards that season. But the next season things started getting back to "normal" in Tennessee -- Bennett was demoted back to "possession receiving" duties while McNair re-took the helm from Volek, who was publicly vilified by Fisher. And most of the team's White defensive players were purged over the next two seasons. Apparently Fisher had been taking the wrong mix of meds there for a while and since then has gone back to being as reliably pro-Caste in every way as he had been before his short adventure with being semi-objective in his treatment of players.

    The 49ers are definitely the team to root against. Between Psycho Harbaugh and their reptilian-like quotaback, they are harder to stomach than all the other awful "choices" in the league.

    I couldn't watch much of the game at all, once it appeared obvious that the Rams were going to be routed. I did catch a bit of a post-game interview with Quotanick and Gore. Quotanick, who put up the kind of stats Alex Smith does every game, was not castigated like Smith for being a "game manager" or "checking down," he was lauded as if he'd rewritten the record books.

    The entire premise of this interview was that Quotanick's sub-200 yard game had "vindicated" him in the eyes of all this imaginary criticism. Quotanick displayed every bit of his arrogant, obnoxious personality. He is clearly full of himself. Gore, by the way, might be the most ignorant sounding athlete ever, outside the world of professional boxing. Those who claim these NFL playbooks are "complex" have to explain how the Gores of the world, who in all reality probably are illiterate, can possibly comprehend what we are told are sophisticated, complex offenses.

    Jeff Fisher is another Norv Turner. Inexplicably promoted as a "great coach" by the media, his record is mediocre. He is a faithful adherent to the Caste System, and loves players with "character" issues as well.

    I turned the game off after the first quarter. After watching a chess master on Monday night, I felt as if I was watching checkers. I did catch the talk about Laurinaitis’s awesome feat of not missing a snap in three seasons.

    Another dwf journalist who clearly didnt watch the game just highlights http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap20...t-we-learned-thursday-sam-bradford-regressing


    An afleet smitten mike mayok even praised Bradford for hanging in the pocket under pressure. I did not see a checkdown qb I saw a qb who wanted to make plays. What I saw was a terrible game plan and an inconsistent groups of receivers. Bradford doesnt even have a #1 receiver to throw to. Amendola was it but he could not stay healthy all the time. I thought it was funny how he tried to compare the Freeman situation with this. Freeman was so overhyped for obvious reasons. Bradord was injury prone and didnt have dat wrist flick according to draft experts. These nfl so called journalists are terrible.

    As it stands right now, Bradford is an average quarterback. Granted, he doesn't have a whole lot of help out there but I'm really rooting for the guy to elevate his play, because he's another young white QB that might be on a short leash. I remember back in the old days when it would take about 3-4 years for a QB to truly develop. Now in our present ADHD society, they are no longer given that much time... unless you're a quotaback that is. Guys like Jason Campbell are given chance after chance because of their limitless "upside"

    to be fair, runningback is one of the easiest positions to learn, its why so many blacks were put there when the NFL was first integrated. The only thing that requires some intelligence is picking up the blitz, you have to be aware of who might come from where, this is why pretty much every White guy excels at it, plus you also have to have to technique to block bigger guys coming at you. Gore doesn't know the playbook. He knows what he has to do based on what his linemen are doing.

    from PS straight to slot?

    Jaguars signed WR Jeremy Ebert from their practice squad.

    Ebert will serve as the No. 3 receiver and contribute on special teams with both Stephen Burton (concussion) and Mike Brown (back) ruled out for Week 4. The Jaguars have also promoted WR Tobais Palmer to their 53-man roster.

    A Boston newspaper had a story yesterday that Gronkowski and Amendola were going to play Sunday night against the Falcons, but neither made the trip to Atlanta. Both were questionable this week so hopefully next week will be the week we've been waiting for.

    it is incredibly irksome that two guys who could lead the league for their respective positions in yards, catches and in case of Gronk overall TDs are so unlucky and/or injury prone. let's hope Amendola got it out oh his system for this season and that Gronkowski won't succumb to any more complications.

    Most of the talking heads are predicting an Atlanta victory. While it's true the Patriots offense has been somewhat underwhelming so far, and they very well could lose, there is no reason why the pundits should be picking Atlanta apart from the fact that they are, in fact, pulling for Atlanta. The Pats offense has not been as white as it typically is but everyone knows how relatively white a healthy Patriots team is.

    Not hard to see the "reasoning" behind their "analysis" predicting this one. No one knows who will win the game, but it's completely absurd that the majority of pundits are predicting an Atlanta victory. If this game, between these two teams at their current strength, were played 10 times, the Pats would win 8-7 of those games. That is an objective analysis.

    This video is actually pretty hilarious. The entire panel of "experts" are unanimous in that the Pats will lose. Yet at the end of the segment the host says: "History is not on Atlanta's side. Tom Brady has never lost to an Atlanta team." And then, if you listen closely, one of the black commentators makes a noise that seems to be indicating the equivalent of "o snap", conceding on some level that their commentary is completely baseless and idiotic.

    Like I said, I have no idea if the 3-0 Patriots will win or lose against the 1-2 Falcons but one thing is obvious, this is not analysis, this is rooting.

    The last Pats game I watched they were not very good. With so many of their weapons gone-Gronk, Welker, Woodhead, even Hernandez, and Amendola out, I think Atlanta is going to spank them pretty badly. The Pats defense is horrendous as always and the offense right now can't make up for it. I'd bet the Falcoons win too, plus it's in Atlanta.

    I know that there have been disappointing injuries and trades that are especially displeasing to myself and commentators on this site, and the Patriots defense has its share of blacks, but, nevertheless, an objective analysis indicates the Patriots have an edge. Vegas agrees.

    Of course, I personally am not objective. I'll be rooting for their black receivers and defense to play well, so as to increase the chance that the whitest team in football will win another super bowl. It ain't revolution or a cultural renaissance but it's mildly better than the alternative.

    And yes, both teams have not looked great this year. Though the Pats have managed to win a couple more.

    Mike Glennon getting the start this week for Tampa. Lets hope he does well. Take a look at this little jab at Glennon and piece of caste-speak regarding him over at Walterfootball.com mock draft

    [​IMG] Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina [​IMG]
    This pick could be a quarterback if Mark Dominik and Greg Schiano are fired. If the defensive-minded Schiano survives, he would probably prefer a pass-rusher rather than a quarterback to compete with his beloved Mike Glennon.
