    I'm looking forward to the Rams vs Cowboys Game tonight. Lots of white talent all over the field. I will
    really be focused on the debuts of Cooper Kupp and Ryan Switzer. Both of these kids have great hands
    and speed to burn. I see Kupp becoming a face of the franchise down the road.

    We knew that he would be a wasted high draft pick. Just couldn't predict he'd bust this bad and this fast.

    Little late on this but Jeff Driskel juked the mess out of 2 ATL upsiders on his way to an impressive TD run! Made BSPN top10 for what it's worth.

    BSPN is using the Watkins trade as a built in excuse if/when idler arm once again underperforms in Buffalo.

    Max Mccaffrey had a nice game however he will probably be a victim of the great white purge. A 6'2 200 lb receiver with 4.36 speed! Hmm!

    Potential good news for Jordan Taylor as another highly drafted WR is injured. Henderson didn't have as good a career at Louisiana Tech as teammate Trent Taylor but was drafted in the third round while Taylor went in the fifth:

    Broncos WR Carlos Henderson requires thumb surgery. The team won't have a timetable for Henderson's return until after his Sunday operation. The No. 82 overall pick of the draft, Henderson caught one pass for seven yards in his preseason debut on Thursday. Having a quiet camp, Henderson is theoretically in the lead for No. 3 duties behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

    Cooper Kupp with a nice catch and run. A few plays later Robert Woods fumbles a Jared Goff pass and Kupp recovers it in the endzone for a touchdown!

    Woods has a drop and fumble so far.Goff looked good on that drive. Kupp looked good on his catch and showed great awareness in recovering that fumble.

    Goff done for the night already. I like it, it shows the coaching staff has confidence in him. I can't wait for him to show a lot of improvement this season.

    Yea I have a good feeling about him this year. It was a small sample size but he made good throw and quick decisions.

    Nelson Spruce returning punts for the Rams. Cody Davis should be starting this year!

    Where is Ryan Switzer for the Cowboys punt returns?? Lance Lenior(who?) has already fumbled his 1st attempt.

    Switzer has been injured - id rather keep him off the field until the season.

    I hope Spruce wins a job - he has just about as good of hands as Kupp.

    Derek Wolfe has a sprained ankle, but should be ready to play when the regular season starts.

    Detroit Lions first preseason game today. That will give us a chance to see if Zenner is still in the plans or will be slowly shuttled aside. The local media has him fighting for a roster spot but I think Coach Caldwell likes the guy, so that helps. Abberderis and Jace are on the bubble at receiver, only one may make it, and that is if the Lions keep an extra receiver. Expect lots of balls to white guys for this exhibition though.

    Zenner has had some good carries. Rudock has had a good game. The colts have that undersized temple quotaback on their roster - laughable

    Not watching, but saw on internet the Colts Dalton Crossan had an 11 yard run called back for holding and has caught 1 pass for 6 yards. Anyone watching? Watch for Crossan and update if possible. Thanks.
    I think Crossan has a shot if given the opportunity.

    Crossan had a nice run, beat the defenders to the edge but a holding call was made on a black TE.

    Billingsley with a nice punt return.

    Yeah I just happened to tune in and catch the Crossan run. He looks to have burst with some power to go along with it. A bit raw at this level maybe but with some NFL experience he could catch on. If he doesn't make the 53 the I could see him developing on the PS.

    I know White players get injured a fair amount, and the rap against them used to be that they were more injury prone than blacks, but that's completely changed over the past decade or so. Was just reading Weenieworld and it's one blurb after another about injured black players, many of them stars, just another typical day. An uncanny number of black rookie receivers every year are useless due to injury. Practices are less physical than they used to be, not sure what the cause is but my guess would be the NFL continuing to force-feed an ever diminishing talent pool into the league as the Caste System is "too big to fail."

    Some more head scratching "analysis" from weenieworld as they try to talk up that Oaf Cardale as a viable number 2 qb - bypassing 10 year vet Kellen Clemens. No mention in that he was going against 2nd and 3rd stringers either. However they deserve credit for their doublespeak - they give him the excuse of learning a new offense in San Diego after spending all of the offseason in Buffalo but than go on to say that his familiarity with Lynn's system (his former OC in Buffalo last year) should help. Another great illustration of weenieworld's anti white/full on cuck bias.

    I'd take Bercovici over the bum Oafdale any day of the week.

    Jones completed just two of his nine pass attempts for 50 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Seahawks while adding a team-best 18 rushing yards.

    It's been a whirlwind summer for Jones, who had to get used to a new coach and system in Buffalo before he was dealt to the Bolts in late July, learning yet another new system and town. He has some familiarity with Anthony Lynn, his offensive coordinator in Buffalo, so that will help. Jones did some good things in this one, especially with his feet, and it likely won't take much to unseat Kellen Clemens as the primary backup before too long.
