    Tonight we have a game that a month or so ago would have been a total blah. The London (wait, the NFL said that this is fake news) Chargers at the soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders. Both teams feature excellent white QB's and some key white players. As noted elsewhere on the forum, the Raiders have come a loooong way from the Black Jack Del Rio teams of just a couple of years ago.

    Both teams are hovering around .500, the Raiders playing better than forecast while the Chargers are among the most inconsistent teams in the league. The Bolts are the kind of team that can beat or lose to anybody any given week.

    Right out of the box Maxx Crosby burns the sumo right tackle and gets to Rivers. Like clockwork, Aikman calls Crosby a “high-motor” guy.

    I’m pulling for the Raiders with Carr, Crosby, Moreau, and Renfrow, impact players.

    Crosby also deflected a pass although it could have been a caused fumble? "High Motor" give me a break. Crosby is an outstanding quick twitch breathtaking fast athlete.

    I agree Aikman who isn't overly caste ( but it is there a bit) has been on a drone auto pilot all year long. I have not liked his approach this year. I too am rooting for the Raiders but note Drue Tranquill appears to be starting at LB for the Chargers along with DE Bosa.

    Late note Crosby just caused an interception. Destroying the game by himself. Three huge plays and just a few minutes into the game.

    I’ve been watching and the octoroon, or maybe quadroon, Eric Harris has had a very good game. Two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown, and 3 passes defensed. Others may not root for the guy, but I see him as a caste buster of sorts, and pull for the guy.

    Superficially he looks like a caste buster for sure but my take on any partially white player is that if they were completely white they would not get the opportunity.

    Crosby is a beast though!

    Believe me when I tell you I don't think any less of you for your attitude. But I am a strict hard liner and to me I consider him black without any hedging.

    By the way LB Drue Tranquill has been all over the field. Looks like a future star.

    So Max Crosby and Jared Allen were both 4th round draft steals.

    I can see some NFL types draft prepping with some film on one of our underrated guys and saying he might be a draft steal (wink wink).

    Yeah Harris would’ve had 3 picks in the first half but they called a phantom offsides penalty on Crosby which negated it. Replay clearly showed Crosby was not in the neutral zone. I believe so far tonight Crosby has 1 TFL, .5 sack, and 1 PD. He also almost got another sack but decked Rivers and forced him to throw a pick.

    Joe Buck describing Josh Jacobs: “his smile can light up the room.” Do you hear yourself? You’re supposed to be the premier color commentator, but you’re nothing but a mindless cliche’ utterer.

    Maxx Crosby in Rivers’ face again, forcing the game clinching interception.

    Rookie report cards.

    LB Drue Tranquill--14 tackles------A

    WR-Hunter Renfrow-4-40 plus yards, clutch plays late--B+

    DE-Maxx Crosby-forced several bad passes----A

    All turning into stellar draft picks.

    I agree.

    If a slavery reparations bill was passed, guys like Erik Harris would be on the receiving end and guys like Maxx Crosby and Hunter Renfrow would be on the paying end. That says it all for me.

    Im starting to agree, he looks less and less white every time I look at him! What I would like to know is if dumb football fans who dont pay close attention race consider him white? He appears to have gotten the white boy treatment. Division II college, Canadian Football, somehow finds a way on a roster as a special teamer, and now finally gets a chance to start, and what do you know, hes a legitimate NFL starting safety. I dont consider him to be a white man, but I guarantee you when scouts watch him on film, they see a white safety and payed him no mind. Thats why I root for him

    I kept thinking the Raiders weren't going to win. They couldn't put the game away as their offense stayed anemic for most of the second half and then after they scored late the kicker missed the extra point leaving Rivers plenty of time to drive down the field for a field goal especially against a mostly talentless (the rule not the exception) all black secondary albeit Harris had a career day.

    DE Maxx Crosby was credited with a half sack (although it looked like a full sack) but sacks don't tell the whole story. He had ten QB pressures. That is an enormous amount of pressures.

    Crosby to me is the spitting image of Patrick Kerney, another coltish, fast and athletic DE who was drafted by the Falcons in 1999. But Kerney didn't start his career off as fast as Maxx. But in his third season he collected 12 sacks and followed that up with 10.5 the following year. Kerney ended up with Seattle in 2007 and had a whopping 14 sacks in his debut there.

    I remember that early 2000s Falcons defense well because it also featured the dynamic and quick twitch fast LB Keith Brooking.

    Perhaps the Raiders should think about drafting a stud white LB to tag team with Maxx just like the Falcons did with Brooking and Kerney? Now injured Utah State's David Woodward would be a perfect fit!

    By the way ever since the Raiders got rid of K Mack, now with the all of a sudden falling Bears, all we heard from the media is what fools the Raiders were for getting rid of Mack. Mack is a media hero and while good he is also overrated.

    The Raiders still have some holes and their offensive attack is too conservative but the rest of their schedule is relatively easy so it will be interesting to see if they can somehow squeeze into the playoffs.

    Winning power football can hide quarterback inadequacy, if Carr can roll back the clock and be what he was 3 seasons ago, then you have a dark horse team that could catch a favorite napping in the playoffs.

    I'm sure we've gone into depth on Harris somewhere here on CF, we don't miss much. Not sure how DWF's see him or if he is in line for reparations, but here is his wife and obviously mulatto children, along e with the blackest-looking pic I could find of him (the rest he looks like a cracka from Kennebunkport)

    As I've often posited, perception among scouts, coaches, GMs and DWFs are key components to the caste system. "Look" is 95%, meaning that blacks "look" athletic while whites look like the clod staring back at them in the mirror to them. Did he really follow the white man's path to the NFL or was he given black privilege?

    Sutton Smith back with Pittsburgh on the practice squad.....
    Perfect candidate, hated to see him unemployed for two months...

    I saw Harris interviewed after the game last night, he’s probably a halfy or 1/4, but seems like a real nice, grounded family man....,Give me a team that’s half white and half non-thug black and I’ll be happy......I’d love to see a GM come out and seek diversity, could you imagine 5-6 white starters on defense?.....Limp libs would call it racist....,

    And of course, no guys with two last names or someone calling themselves Marquad Jones Sr. (No seniors, only Jr or roman numerals if your dad played in the league)....
    New rule.

    Doing more research, I read that Smith was signed to the ps, then cut from the ps the next day.....Due to injuries to Steeler running backs, they signed another rb......Maybe once they’re healthy they’ll get SS back.......Stay in shape, young man.

    I wouldn't doubt that the "room brightening smile" cliche is an inside joke between white and jewish analysts. So they have to get pre game interviews and in steps a young DB who knows maybe two things football and trying to live like a rapper, and his football knowledge is probably distilled into the simplest terms, so the interview is basically a bust between a few people whose only connection is that they will be in the same stadium on a certain date. Not every DB or D black player is like that of course but enough are sent in to be interviewed as to make that day a painful experience for the media types. And Aikman looks like crap and FOX puts too much on Buck and Troy, I wouldn't doubt both hit the sauce like Otis in Mayberry.

    This is the best news of the weekend but I'm not gonna go too crazy until he actually runs the ball. Look how long we have waited for Laird to get one carry. It still hasn't happened.

    Let's think positive but this racist league pisses me off as much as anything!

    Nall was signed from the practice squad to the active roster after the Bears released Mike Davis. It doesn't mean he'll be getting carries tomorrow and most likely won't. He might even be a healthy scratch. Will be nice if he does get some touches but let's keep expectations in check.

    Given how downright awful Kalen Ballage has been, I'll be less surprised if Laird gets some carries tomorrow than if Nall does.
