    If Kaepernick starts the 49ers might look better for a few games as he has the "locker room" on his side and has been made a national hero by the usual anti-White suspects in the hive media, before he settles back down to his level, which is bottom feeder status as a starting QB. With all the injuries Kaepernick's had and how poorly he's played for years and all the controversy he's caused, a similar White QB would be long gone from the roster.

    Gabbert looked really good last season before Kelly took over. This is the second team now where Kelly's offense hasn't translated to the NFL. Given how Chip has "grown" as far as getting with the racial script, it won't bother me if this is his last pro coaching job.

    Found this from a fantasy site:

    The final three periods of Thursday night’s game continued to feature extremely poor quarterback play, but 54 points managed hit the scoreboard in that span. . . With no defensive touchdowns and both teams combining for only 286 passing yards, it is amazing that 54 points were scored and fantasy production was squeezed from this game.

    When Tyrod Taylor had a bad game earlier this season but still ended up with respectable fantasy stats, Weenieworld gushed that Taylor had played a "monster" game and had "monstrous upside." When White quarterbacks put up stats with low passing yardage totals -- the kind only black QBs usually do -- they're decried as the worst quarterbacks imaginable.

    With Kevin White on IR for the second straight year, and Eddie Royal injured yet again, the Bears may be forced to activate Daniel Braverman from their practice squad. Note the doublespeak in this article. Braverman was the "talk of training camp," "impressed the coaching staff," "just keeps making plays," "we're performance based. . . and he continues to flash and make plays," he "had a solid training camp" "but the team waived him." What's wrong with this picture? Nothing if one knows how the NFL operates:

    Seventh-round pick Daniel Braverman became a fan favorite in Bourbonnais, IL this summer during training camp for the Chicago Bears.

    Bears rookie receiver Daniel Braverman continues to prove himself in training camp.


    A three-year contributor at Western Michigan, Braverman caught 212 passes for 2,499 yards with 19 touchdowns, including 108 catches for 1,367 yards with 13 touchdowns in his final season in 2015. The young slot receiver was the talk of training camp and impressed the coaching staff.

    "He just keeps making plays," said coach John Fox in training camp. "You know we're performance-based. I know it's just practice, but we try and simulate games as much as we can in the practice and he continues to flash and make plays."

    Braverman had a solid training camp but the team waived him before the start of the year. Chicago placed him on its practice squad and there is a chance he could be activated this Sunday with Kevin White now on injured reserve.

    OL Nick Easton stood up CLOWNey on that TD run. What a wasted draft pick and bust in the making.

    I'm sick of seeing these players wearing pink. Nobody in the mainstream media even questions it.

    Id never even heard of Adam Thielen before this week. Bradfords chucking Darts around the field and looking his way alot.

    He needs to have a big /nd half so that he can stay in the starting line-up.

    I'm suprised no one is talking about Zenner. He's looked good then right on cue, the announcers say "he ran the wrong route, look at Stanford he wants him out of there."

    A walk in the park. Great to see Brady back and dominating. Hope Hogan goes over 150 yards

    Touchdown Jesse James for the Crawfords against an all black Jets defense.

    In other TE news, Crockett Gillmore has a TD and his teammate Pitta is the leading receiver for Baltimore.

    He had 2 runs for a loss that I saw. One was definitely partially his fault, he tried to dance a little when he should've just plowed forward. He had a nice run on a screen, and a nice little 6-7 yard gain up the middle. He defineltly looked a little tight/nervous at first, we'll see what happens.

    I don't expect much from him today. Riddick is playing well. But it's good he's getting carries and snaps.

    Colts are starting their 4th string mlb now because of injury. In a deep LB class idiot GM Grigson passed up plenty of pale faced tackle machine LBs and now they're paying the price.

    Brandon Marshall was correct when he stated on "Inside the NFL" that Chris Hogan "is a monster." Chris looks like the fastest guy on the field, burning black DBs for 2 long gains (including a 63-yard bomb) on his way to his first 100-yard game as a Patriot. Also great to see Gronk involved in the passing game, looking like his old self, with no sign of injury. Too bad Bennett is scoring all the TDs.

    Grigson is an idiot. This past week he came out and blamed Andrew Luck's deal for the piss poor team he has built around him.

    If they lose today he should be canned, it's time to move on from his way of doing things. I doubt Indy gets rid of Pagano just yet.

    Yea I think Pagano is safe. Grigson is the issue. Like you said he passed over so many of the white LBs in this past year's draft. He drafted many WRs when other needs should of been addressed. He is basically like Matt Millen as a GM.
