    Good-quality sparkling wine for your mimosas and Skyy vodka usually ensures that you won't end up with a crushing headache. Now watching the Dak squad. He freaking sucks.

    .....But it' all because of his (white) coaching staff. Gotta bring in "diversity" for him to bring out his "upside".

    Congrats to CMac going over 1000 yards from scrimmage this week. Used properly he would have been able to hit 2000, and even now that's still possible.

    It looked like Miami had an all white offensive line in action today.

    And it sounds like an ACL injury for Kupp. Frustrating news.

    Vander Esch’s INT. So many Dallas DWF’s were highly disappointed when he was a first round pick, but he’s been great since taking over for Lee a few weeks ago...

    Ertz and Goedert need to get involved.

    Ertz now with 80 yards and a TD. The best receiving TE in the NFL.

    Ertz with an incredible leaping catch and Heath with an incredible game-saving tackle.

    Vander Esch and Heath with the Defensive plays of the game. And Heath converted a 4th down fake punt as well.

    All of our guys shined tonight.

    Ertz had 14 catches for 145 yards and 2 touchdowns. Vande Esch 13 tackles and an interception. Heath with 8 tackles, a run for a first down and the gave saving stop.

    Ertz has clearly supplanted Gronk as the premier TE in the NFL. A first team all-pro who has turned into a great receiver, should easily get to 1000+ yards and 10+ TDs by year’s end.

    The worst of the worst type of news is a torn ACL for a skilled white player. No expert but I can't recall a knee sprain leading up to a torn ACL? I remember when RG3 was having some knee issues and then finally blew a tire but I don't think there is a connection. We can only hope for the best for Cooper Kupp but early reports are not encouraging. So few to cheer for and when one goes down the cupboard seems bare. It is like living in a horror movie.

    Edelman also got injured but I think it is a minor ankle thing. The Patriots play in a horrible division so I expect them to reach the playoffs and no I am not writing off Tom Brady. They are 7-3. I was listening to some local detailed reports and the feeling is that Brady is trying too hard to get Josh Gordon involved so come playoff time he will be ready. Interestingly though the analysts ( Patriots insiders) feel this approach is hampering the offense. Especially noted was the lack of passes to Chris Hogan. They all agreed they need to get Hogan more involved. Brady should bounce back. The real worry is that defense. Not Super Bowl caliber and will likely be their downfall down the road. I imagine this is Gronkowski's last season. Too beat up after years of abuse.

    And yes the Jordy Nelson story has taken a turn for the worse. Hard to say he is finished because there is no way of telling. They never throw him the ball. The Raiders are pug awful and I agree with Truth. Time to get rid of the one constant throughout this long running mess. Fire the GM Reggie McKenzie for starters. And draft some white athletes on defense.

    I wonder if KC will feature more white presence on defense including S Sorensen now that he is back? Is Eric Berry really done for the year? Hope so.

    Finally as mentioned above the dynamic duo of S Jeff Heath and LB Leighton Vander Esch were out of sight last night. Heath got beat but his recovery speed allowed him to make the tackle. He is among the fastest safeties in football. And how fitting that both made huge plays at the most crucial time of the game. Plus on the final play of the game after another Ertz catch ( how good is he?) first LVE started taking Ertz down and then Heath finished off the guy Ertz pitched it to. Bravo. Smart hyper athletic white defenders. Hey NFL you night want to try it. LVE is looking like superstar already!!

    It’s a dark Monday for sure. Kupp out for the season with a torn ACL as feared, and Jordy Nelson apparently will announce his retirement today?

    F*** the GB Packers for the way they handled the situation. I understand the business side of it, but Jordy can still play and he deserved better. They should’ve found a way to keep him for one more year and then retire as a Packer.

    Well if nothing else we can always look forward to some really cool end zone celebrations to keep a game interesting.

    The people who have end zone seats are so lucky!

    As I noted in several threads last week, Jordy was a total fool choosing Oakland over New Orleans last spring -- Payton and Brees made an aggressive push to get him last spring.

    Raiders have a jewish owner that inherited the franchise and has probably never worked a "real job" one day in his life. I'd assume Mark Davis is perfectly fine with having an all-black team and could care less if any whitey is "cleansed" from the roster. I also mentioned their black GM who seems to openly despise white athletes, even more than Dennis Green and James Harris ever did. It was a perfect storm against him and he had very little chance to succeed in Oakland, right from the start.

    I was also hoping/predicting last week the Raiders would cut Nelson, so he could possibly join Brees and company for the final 6 games and the playoffs.....or perhaps sign with the Rams to replace Kupp?

    I guess half of my prediction came true (if Jordy retires): The Raiders have probably, in fact, decided to cut Nelson, but are giving him the option to "retire", so he could leave with some dignity.

    Question is, why is Jordy hanging it up instead of accepting the release, which is really good for him? Two possible answers:

    One, his time in that racist hell hole in Oakland, in which he willfully decided to join, was so torturous and has left him so jaded that he just longs to return to rural Kansas?

    Secondly, the screw over job he received by Gruden and his racist teammates was so bad, teams do not believe he was simply "ignored" by Carr and Gruden, but think he's "washed-up" and can't get open more?

    If I were to guess, I'd say it's a combination of both!

    FWIW white free agents (receivers especially) have displayed a tendency for signing with a team that won't use them very well. Signing for the most money is more important to them than anything.

    You are correct, particularly in Jordy's case. By the way, Brett Hundley really harmed any chance Nelson had to make the Hall of Fame; Gruden and the Raiders destroyed it!

    How so?

    After missing a full season with a knee injury, Nelson bounced back real strong in 2016 and had another Pro Bowl caliber season. If he could string together 2 or 3 more 1,000 yard season after '16, the Hall of Fame would've been a realistic possibility.

    Jordy was on pace (or close to it) for another 1,ooo yard season when Aaron Rodgers was injured @ Minnesota in 2017. We all know what happened with Hundley, so '17 was a waste. Then he choose money, dysfunction and anti-white bigotry over stability and Brees and his career is likely over.

    Will Jordy still get Hall of Fame consideration?

    Yes, but as I noted he likely needed a couple more 1,000 yard season to get well over 10,000 career receiving yards to have a serious chance. He won't come close, it appears, barring a miracle.

    In the end, he'll be in the same boat as Wes Welker and Dez Bryant -- several great years, but not enough for the Hall of Fame

    You have the never working a day in his life down pat for the Dumb and Dumber clone in Mark Davis. Technically his mother owns the team and she presumably endorses the cheques, but like the Chargers under Spanos the younger family member runs the day to to day operations.

    I think part of the reason why the Raiders are a mess is because the team is run on a relative shoe string budget. Really if Davis had any integrity he would take in a partner or sell of his mothers share of the club to somebody who wouldn't prostitute out the team to a city that would finance a new stadium. It's like the club is in a time warp where they have 1980's budgeting for 2010's era budgets.

    Isn't Jordy Nelson's salary guaranteed for the year as a veteran? Why would he retire, unless it's due to injury?
