    I guess nobody watched the Thursday night snooze fest.

    Anquan Boldin retired from the Bills in preseason as a hero to “pursue social/racial justice full-time.” Now, he already wants to return to the league and the Bills have given him permission to contact teams and seek a trade. The hypocrisy speaks for itself.

    I watched a little but the game. Just saw that Suh grabbed Mallet by the neck after Mallet took offense to Suh hitting him. Every single one of Suhs cheap shot targets has been against a white player going back to his days in Detroit. He is one of the most overrated players in the game.

    Highlight of last night's game:



    Something else that was kind of funny. We got treated to a video of the Raven's RB doing Irish dancing. I like Irish dancing, not like this though. That was hideous.

    Weenieworld with some cucked analysis - trying to point the finger at Gase instead of that terrible black roster in Miami. Their line play is laden with affletic sumos so according to caste principles it should be a very good o-line. They also call out the passing game but fail to make the connection that a running game is reliant on the o-line. Perhaps Gase is doing what he can with the limited talent around him.

    I personally get the feeling that Gase is not a fan of his coal black roster - I think Tannehill17 could probably shed some light on this as he is member who follows Miami closely.

    Dolphins coach Adam Gase called out the team for "not studying their assignments."

    "We're not putting the work in. Guys should take this stuff home and study. It starts with our best players." This is a surprising rant from Gase, who didn’t take any account for his role in the offensive struggles. Miami has been shut out twice in their first seven games, and scored a last-second touchdown in Week 3. Their problems have looked more scheme based (61-percent pass ratio), with Gase running a pass-heavy shotgun-based attack despite bottom-of-the-league quarterback and line play. It’s been a rough season for the Dolphins coaching staff — both on/off the field. Miami has nine days to get ready for a matchup with Oakland next Sunday night.

    That's cultural appropriation. I'm part Irish. Someone owes me money.

    Yes, according the the liberal mainstream media it's always a White man's fault. They never hold blacks accountable.

    Panthers are going to take away some of McCaffery's snaps. He went to such a bad team. I hated the pick back in April. Scam's deficiencies are going to be blamed on the white RB.

    Coach Ron Rivera indicated RB Cameron Artis-Payne could see snaps on passing downs in relief of Christian McCaffrey.

    Rivera mentioned it's "concerning" that McCaffrey is playing on so many passing downs as a blocker due to his smaller build. Artis-Payne has been a career backup, making it unlikely he takes more than a few snaps away from McCaffrey

    CM is playing for a team that has no run blocking. That O-line sucks. Its best that CM is being used primarily as a receiver. Riveria should focus on improving that. Don't really understand how they overlooked it, being he has had success in the past 3 years.

    Just saw that the Texans are going to meet today to plan a protest for tomorrow against the owner that pays them. This is becoming very entertaining. All over a commonly used phrase. Hilarious!

    I quickly glanced at the matchups, maybe watch Detroit to see if Zenner makes the field if not I would rather watch NASCAR or hunting shows.

    The Texans are playing the Seattle BLM so it should make things even more interesting. I could totally see Sherman and Bennett joining the Texans' protest. I can almost guarantee the Texans will lose the game and that many of their players will have their worst performances of the season. That's because black NFL players are notoriously weak minded. All of their focus will be on the owner and the protest. Their minds won't be in the game at all.

    And just to be fair to the players it's a common phrase in the English language. English is a second language to many NFL players. Most of them grew up speaking Ebonics . So let's not judge them too harshly for not being familiar with the idioms of our language.

    Cleveland MLB Joe Schobert already with 6 solo tackles and an interception in the 2nd quarter. Joe is a tackling machine and one of the most underrated linebackers in the NFL this season.

    Thielen now with 3 grabs for 57 yards and a TD in the first half.

    Honestly, I think his stats will improve with the return of a decent complimentary WR (Diggs) to take some attention away from Adam. Treadwell, Floyd, and Wright demanded no respect.

    Looks like the Vikings still view Bridgewater as their franchise QB. He will put another black at the QB position if he plays this year. NFL is rapidly turning into the NBA.

    Teddy Bridgewater - QB - Vikings
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Teddy Bridgewater (knee, PUP) could return in Week 10.

    Now that Bridgewater has resumed practicing, the Vikings have until November 8 to activate him from the PUP list. All signs point to him returning immediately following Minnesota's Week 9 bye, giving him a chance to be under center November 12 at Washington. Per Rapoport, the Vikings still think of Bridgwater as their "franchise quarterback" and wouldn't hesitate to start him over Case Keenum, who has struggled in recent weeks. With Keenum cooling off and Sam Bradford still out indefinitely with a knee injury, Bridgewater is worth a speculative add in two-quarterback leagues.

    Clueless Hue seems to ooze black privilege. Mangini had a two year stint in Cleveland before being blackballed from the league. BSPN hosts celebrated his firing. I remember he was cleaning out alot of the trash from the previous regime and trying to bring build a Patriots like winning culture. At lease he won 10 games in two years. Mangini is only 46 years old and has not coached in the league since 2010.


    According to. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Browns coach Hue Jackson's job is safe "for now."

    Per Rapsheet, Jackson will maintain his job even if the Browns suffer another "ugly" loss Sunday against Minnesota. "Changes are expected to come at the end of the season in some form or fashion," he said. "But at this point, they are not expected to involve Hue Jackson." The Browns are trying to establish some continuity after years of endlessly cycling through coaches and players, but with just one win in 23 games as head coach, Jackson's leash is getting shorter by the minute.

    Kizer is god awful. All he can do is dink and dunk over the middle. When he’s forced to hold the ball for a normal route, he gets sacked or horribly mis-throws the receiver. He has no feel for pressure coming and no feel for the game overall. At this point, he’s a 3rd quotaback experiment player at best. Not a guy you draft high and give the keys of the franchise to.

    Great game for our guys

    Thielen and Rudolph with TDs, Thielen leading the game in receiving
    Schobert 11 tackles, a PD, an FF, and a pick. Huge performance.
    Nassib a sack and two PDs (one becoming a pick)
    Smith 7 tackles
    Keenum pretty decent, Kizer terrible as always
    White-friendly vikings get the win, Browns (in name and nature) get yet another loss.

    I can't see him finishing the season or being retained if the losses continue to mount. Remember Hatie Smiff? He won 10 games with da Bears and was canned. Nah, I see a pink slip in Hue's near future.

    Weenieworld doing it's best to cover the stink on a turd. This is some real laughable "analysis".

    DeShone Kizer completed 18-of-34 passes for 179 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Browns' Week 8 loss to the Vikings in London.

    Kizer was not asked to do much early, settling for check-downs and screens most of the first half, but he made a great throw to Ricardo Louis down the left sideline near the end of the second quarter, did a good job escaping pressure to find Isaiah Crowell for another long gain, and finished the drive with a quarterback-sneak touchdown. The game-plan did not work as well in the second half, especially after the Vikings to out in front and forced the rookie to stand in the pocket and make plays. Those plays were not really forthcoming, and he ended up taking his only three sacks in the final quarter. Still, this has to be considered a step in the correct direction considering Kizer protected the ball and was actually allowed to finish the game, something which had not happened since Week 3. He will almost certainly be the starter when the Browns emerge from the bye against the Lions in Week 10.

    That's why Mangini hasn't been hired as a head coach since. The Browns were really starting to turn it around in '10, even beating the Patriots that season, but doing it Patriots style, featuring Peyton Hillis, a 4/5 White o-line, and a nearly half-White defense.

    Same with Steve Spagnuolo when he was the Rams head coach. They were regularly starting five Whites on defense, and though the team hadn't jelled yet, Spagnuolo was done as a head coach after he was fired. It helps to already be an established and successful head coach when it comes to defying the Caste System's long-established guidelines on roster demographics.

    Nice touchdown reception for Jets TE Eric Tomlinson. Josh McCown has been playing very well this season for a poor Jets squad. It’s nice to see him have some success as he’s only been allowed opportunities to start on last place caliber squads.

    On the other side of the ball, the Falcons have just looked awful the last month. At this point they are a shell of the team that was 1 poor quarter away from winning the Super Bowl last season.

    Austin Hooper with one as well. Our tight ends are off to a good start today.
