    I hope to be more involved now that the football is officially underway! Thought I'd start off with a couple threads for our white SKILL position playrers. Starting with saftey a pos thats slowly been drying out of white talent the past 10-15 yrs, bar 2-3 star players and another 4-5 decent starters that never fluctuates. So as of now we have 13 white Safties on active rosters, and 6 starters.
    (Starters in Bold)

    Pats- Nate Ebner
    Bengals- Clayton Fejedelem
    Jaguars- Cody Davis , Andrew Wingard
    Chiefs- Daniel Sorenson
    Raiders- Dallin Leavitt
    Cowboys- Jeff Heath
    Eagles- Andrew Sendejo, Nate Gerry (OLB/S hybrid)
    Redskins- Troy Apke ?? (May not start week 1 but is favorite to start most the season)
    Vikings- Harrison Smith
    Panthers- Colin Jones
    Rams- Eric Weddle, Taylor Rapp (half asian I slsupport him but some may not)

    Fejedelem and Colin Jones should be starters. and also, if he ever gets a chance, I think Cody Davis could be solid in a starting role...

    And while not surprising, it's a damn shame Chris Conte isn't on a roster. He could easily start on at least a handful of teams.
    Last year, the moment he hit the ground, I knew his career was over, even though, DBs get trucked several times a game.

    I like your enthusiasm, but only Smith, Weddle and Heath are currently starters, and the demands from DWFs and some media caste clowns for Heath to be demoted or cut are unceasing year-round.

    Here's the latest on Sorensen:
    Sorensen appears primed to play a reserve role versus the Jaguars on Sunday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Sorensen warmed up with the second-team defense ahead of Sunday's tilt. Rookie second-round pick Juan Thornhill appears to have earned the starting gig, relegating Sorensen to a rotational or depth role.

    And Eric Weddle is probably a year off retiring. There isn't enough high profile safeties coming in, unfortunately and the guys that we get can be scrapped without a second thought from DWF or media.

    It'll be sadly ironic if Christian McCaffrey's inadvertent concussing of Weddle speeds up his retirement plans.

    Fejedelem seen action from what I seen, and Wingard is a tackling machine given half a chance.

    Most, if not all of our guys are tackling machines since you know, they can't be athletic according to our media friends.
