    lots of blown assignments and penalties in this Sunday night game. not a well-played game by any stretch.

    and while i am talking about poor play, see the Chicago Bears running game. as the noted deep thinker Charles Barkley would say, “turble.”

    David Edwards, the starting “talent” (sic) at tailblack, manages a “game-breaking” 2.9 yards-per-carry on 14 carries. to make the numbers even worse, his long of the day accounted for 17 of his 40 total yards (meaning he averaged an abysmal 1.8 yards on his remaining 13 carries!). he did manage to stumble into the end zone twice, however.

    Ryan Nall need never apply with a “playmaker” like that on the depth chart above him. smh

    and along with the “evidence” that White athletes are never good enough, there is also the ever-present affirmation that they are always undersized, as well. not so for “real” affletes!

    Tarik Cohen, generously listed at 5’6”, 181-pounds, is in his third year as an NFL tailblack and return man after being drafted in the 4th round out of tiny NC A&T (he played against a great level of competition, no doubt!). yet, i’ve never heard him referred to as being too small or needing time to adjust to the level of play. “weird,” huh?

    despite being tiny AND playing at a joke of a college AND being terrible (a mere 56 yards on 24 carries this season), he’s STILL getting touches in the NFL.

    you can’t make this stuff up. the “best” players play. for sure.

    They gave them 10 minutes to keep pushing across the goal line after the Patriots held them up.

    Not a good showing by the Pats, especially the D. But let these delusional Ravens fans think Jackson deserves MVP chants. Every dog has it's day.

    Ok, the Patriots got their a$$es handed to them by Seattle East (the odious Ravens are quickly becoming that), and the establishment gets what they wanted.

    The Pats have some tough games coming up. I hope they clean things up, and hopefully get home field thru the playoffs.

    Although, honestly, are we really rooting for this team more out of habit and perception than reality? Yes, historically they have been a white friendly team for many years, but not this year.

    Did Jackson graduate from college? That post-game interview was painful to listen to...

    On the bright sight even on a bad night Brady just missed another 300 yard game.

    Rex Burkhead had 4 carries for 18 yards and another 16 receiving. It's good to have him back out there.

    Julian Edelmann has 10 catches for 89 yards just missing another 100 yard game.


    Cheer up guys. Even on a bad night you can always take some positives. Winovich was good on defense. More than I can say for the rest of the team!

    Marshall Newhouse was god awful tonight and has been their biggest liability on then for the past few games, there is no way there isnt a white tackle either on a practice squad or on the street that is worse than him!

    Google Jermaine Whitehead. Epic racist rant by the gang banging wannabe football player.

    Beat me to it Bucky, that was even mentioned by the Milwaukee Sentinel, "f*ck a** cracker" the worst kind of cracker, and directed to Dustin Fox the former DB who suffers a skin condition.

    Didn't catch any of the later games or the Sunday Night game. It's too bad "the blank canvas" beat the Pats - again the Ravens success won't be long term once their is enough game film. They barely beat the Steelers (the Mason Rudolph helmet to chin game) and the Bengals. They have the winless Bengals coming up with Finley starting - my guess is they will win that game but then play the Texans, Rams, 49ers, Bills - all games they can lose.

    I dislike Tomlin very much but love Mason Rudolph so it's great to see him back on the field and playing well. They need to open up the offense more for him - he is dumping the ball off to the RB too much - perhaps get Switzer a little more involved.

    The Browns need to fire Kitchens, their D-Coordinator and cut Jermaine Whitehead. What a dumpster fire! My guess is Kitchens is a "players" coach which means he is not a coach at all - their is no discipline or accountability on that team. Mayfield needs a coach who will reign him in and actually coach him. This Browns underperforming is much more on the gum smacking caste cuck GM John Dorsey and obese HC Freddie Kitchens than on Mayfield.

    At least the Bucs fall to a lowly 2-6 which should hasten the departure of Jameis Winston and possibly Bruce Arians. Credit where credit it due - the Dung Beetle is a very good QB - I thought once Lynch left the Seahawks he would struggle but he benefitted from relying on a strong running game early in his career and has developed into a very good QB.

    Adam Thielen leaving the Chiefs game early was the worst thing I saw yesterday. Coming off his greatest season I hope this hamstring problem gets resolved? As it is a 1,000 yard season looks more remote now. After that everything else was muted to some degree.

    But I will focus on tight ends. No they are not as important from a caste POV as wide receivers but they are the next best thing.

    The best name perhaps in all of football is the Raiders TE Foster Moreau. He caught a clutch short TD yesterday ( teammate WR Hunter Renfrow has had two solid games in a row including the nifty game sealing TD) and I can just hear an announcer with a stuffy British accent saying "another touchdown for Foster Moreau." Ha.

    I can think of two players from the past I can compare to Miami's Mike Gesicki ( mentioned above) who is coming off his best ever NFL game. Gee Miami finally bags one and Gesicki was the key cog. Jets couldn't cover him period. Might want to take notes coaching staff?

    Anyway the blindingly fast hyper athletic white TE is not a new phenomena. I vividly recall Tony Scheffler who played for Denver (2006-2009) and Detroit (2010-2013) and I remember him being underused. He had a fine career but it could have been so much more.

    Same thing with Coby Fleener who was drafted by the Colts (2012-2015) and also played for the Saints (2016-2017). While he was utilized a touch more than Scheffler I never could shake the perception he too was underused. In fact it seemed like Brees used Fleener as an afterthought. Is this Mike Gesicki's fate?

    The best TE combo in the NFL resides in Philadelphia. Both Zach Ertz (9-103-1) and Dallas Goedert (4-39) made mince meat out of the so called wonderful all black Bears defense. They were the difference and leading receivers for the Eagles in that game and QB Carson Wentz is slowly getting back to form. With that stellar OL I wouldn't count the Eagles out. And with Nathan Gerry starting on D now they are becoming ever more palatable.

    Two caste heavy teams featured a slew of white TEs yesterday. Seattle's newcomer ( ex Pat) Jacob Hollister scored twice and speedy Luke Wilson has returned as a crowd favorite. They were chanting "Luke" when he caught the ball. And these players are filling in for Will Dissly who is injured. More notes to take general managers. Throw in some white players on your rosters.

    Oddly the Pats gaping hole at TE came back to haunt them last night. We said it at the time, they should have drafted one of the stud white TEs available in this year's draft.

    Meanwhile the Raven's TE contingent is almost Eagles like. Mark Andrews is a big time player who can get deep and Hayden Hurst is a terrific all around talent. And Nick Boyle is solid. All three of them kept bailing out Lamar Jackson last night.

    Meanwhile ultra studs George Kittle and Travis Kelce ( more clutch catches yesterday) continue to prove they are among the best players in all of the NFL. Greg Olsen is past his prime but he is still and effective player. Ditto for old man Jason Witten.

    Still waiting for Jace Sternberger to make his debut with the Packers.

    But oft injured Chargers TE Hudson Henry is finally hitting his stride and youngsters like TJ Hockensen and Dawson Knox look like future stars. And Vance McDonald of the Steelers is a beast.

    Another huge disappointment yesterday was Bucs WR Scott Miller looked like he was following in the footsteps of Isabella and Renfrow with a key TD but alas the refs said he stepped out of bounds before coming back in play and his TD was nullified.

    Oh perhaps Redskins S Troy Apke was their best defensive player yesterday. I didn't see the game but the on line crickets and his stat line make me suspect he had his best ever game in his young career. Anybody see the game for a report?

    SL, I tend to agree with most of what you wrote, I do however disagree that Olsen is past his prime, he is still very agile, fast, great route runner, great hands and continues to make negro dbs look slow and dumb.

    After Mccafferys big td run it is the first time I have seen him look gassed and winded after 40m. He got caught from behind easily and that was shocking and only scored because the db essentially tackled him into the endzone. I dont believe he took another snap after that play. Fatigue may be setting in. He is however THE BEST RB in the NFL. Watching that run I would say pads on he is running 4.4-4.5 40m.

    He definitely wasn't blazing away like we are used to. McCaffrey has finally been getting some rest and some snaps off, but fatigue does seem to be settling in. Here's hoping he can maintain his first half of the season form until the end of this year.

    Christian McCaffrey is leading the NFL in rushing. ESPN has him listed at 2nd in total yards but he has played one less game than Dalvin Cook. He is having a sensational
    year and we need to appreciate his greatness. He has lost a little speed but with the added muscle/bulk, he is a more complete all around back. CMac can push the pile with
    power alot more this season. I wouldn't want to see him get any bigger though. His speed, athletecism & agility make him the best rb in the NFL! :)

    Have to say there's no doubt mccaffrey had to have been fatigued for td 3 .....if anything and clocking mccaffrey in pads ...a non fatigued mccaffrey has 4.3 ability no doubt ....in fact I guage his first 10 /15 yards is quicker than anything in the league at the moment from a standing position ...his acceleration is exceptional .....obviously playing so many snaps and having to touch the ball so often will tire him out during a game ....panthers coaches need to be mindful of this ....

    No white CBs in the NFL. There are a few in the college ranks though.

    Wonder if he'll walk into another team like Brown did after racially abusing his GM.

    i actually think McCaffrey is faster this year than last, especially his initial burst. i agree with those who suggested his fatigue caused him to be run down surprisingly quickly on his third touchdown.

    Updated Troy Apke report.

    He has filled in for three weeks for their starting safety and made an exceptional interception along with a nifty return against the 49ers. Solid start overall.

    Second game I gave him a B against the Vikings. Showed a lot of promise. His athletic ability is off the charts.

    Against the Bills he had his best game yet!!! The local media haters had to grudgingly admit he was ok but filter out the caste crap patrol and you get the real picture. The haters did go after ultra athletic LB Cole Holcomb though.

    Here is head coach Bill Callahan on Apke's performance Sunday:

    "Playing really well in the absence of the 'starter'. He highlighted Apke's range and communication."

    So the best true athlete ( non steroidal) in the NFL is catching on and communicating at a high level.
