    Pats sign Riley McCarron to PS.

    I didn't realize that McCarron ran a 4.36 40-yard dash at Iowa's Pro Day workout and also had a 40.5-inch vertical leap. Another "Wes Welker Clone"...not. I'd love to see him eventually take over for Amendola, Edelman, or Hogan and turn into a superstar. It would be nice to see arch dullard, Bill O'Brien, regret cutting him...

    I would love to see Riley on the other side of the field meaning he and Hogan are the wideouts..... Talk about a complete nightmare for the negro dbs, 2 white dudes who run sub 4.4 40's and have the superstar athletic ability to match....oh mama I hope that day comes!!!

    Linebacker Trevor Reilly has been promoted from the practice squad and will primarily help out on special teams. Reilly was with the Dolphins earlier in the season but was cut.

    Hopefully with the return of McClellin soon, the Pats will start fielding a Whiter defense again....or at least we can hope.

    It helps both McClellin and Reilly that Donta Hightower is done for the season, both of whom can play his position. I remember Reilly making plays every time he was on the field for the Jets. He's been cut by 3 teams in the past, including the Pats. It would be great to see him shine...

    With the signing of WR Jake Kumerow, the Patriots now have 6 white WR's in their organization: Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, Reilly McCarron, Cody Hollister, and Jake Kumerow. Amazing!

    Obviously, NE has plans for them. Cook has obviously thus far, earned his pay and rotation. Not sure about the other affeletic receivers that are on the 53 man roster.

    I’m sure there are many teams that haven’t had 6 white WRs total in their organisation this century. You’d think teams would see the obvious link between the many white WRs and the sustained patriots success for the last 15 or so years but I guess not.

    I noticed that Cassius “The Wigger” Marsh has been waived by the Pats and I’m hoping it’s a good sign for LB Trevor Reilly, who was getting increased snaps on defense when Marsh was injured. With Shea McClellin never returning from IR (concussion), Reilly is the only white defensive player who gets any PT, as safety Nate Ebner is a special teamer only. Since Reilly wears long sleeves, it’s difficult to tell when he enters the game. He wears #51.

    RB Mike Gillislee was a "healthy scratch" for the 3rd straight week against the Dolphins. The "snap count" for the Patriots-Dolphins game shows Rex trending in the right direction:

    Lewis: 28
    Burkhead: 28
    White: 18

    All of these RB's have talent, but Burkhead is the most versatile due to his skills as a slot WR and larger frame for goal line carries. It took 4 years and 12 weeks, but Rex finally found an NFL team that will use his talents...

    Really hoping NE is there to win another SB and that Rex gets a ring. He is so deserving of it and his opportunities to show his skills and abilities thus far.

    I always wonder what these former teams like the Bengals (in Burkhead case) or the Dolphins (Welker) are thinking when the whiteys they release come back and give them a beat down with the Patriots.

    They'll do the same exact same thing with the next white player they have.

    I think if a team like the Bengals got Burkhead back they still wouldn't play him.

    Or the Bills with Chris Hogan. Or the Rams with Danny Amendola. Or the Jets with Danny Woodhead. Or the Saints with Rob Ninkovich. Or the Steelers with Mike Vrabel.

    It's a "copycat league," but no team ever learns that whiteness wins championships.
