    See a concurrent theme here:

    Let's face it guys, Sharp will not make this team. He doesn't even have a FA deal with them yet, it's only a camp invite. Hatie and his stupid team- have a knack for getting the best, vastly underrated, late round or undrafted skill players (who always happen to be white) and cutting them. Last year they got the best undrafted WR in Eric Peterman and cut him, instead giving the final WR spot to the popular Rashied "Nothing Special" Davis.

    A few years back they had "team manager" Brock Forsey- who was near the top of the FBS record books for what he did his senior year for Boise State- after drafting him in the 6th round, they cut him the next season for scrub Adrian Peterson (who I heard an announcer call, "the most popular player" on the Chicago Bears...the heart and "soul" of the team).

    This year they will keep RBs like the undersized special teamer Garrett Wolfe (who Sharp is better than as a tailback already and could do as much if not more on special teams as well) and Kahil Bell and his under 400 yards rushing, 2.8 YPC senior season over Sharp. Bell would go on to run a 4.76 40 at the NFL combine. Sharp blows him away in every measurement category (in addition to besting him in college production- EVEN WHILE HURT as a senior). Bell somehow had a huge 70 yard "trot"Â￾ on his first NFL carry last year and therefore finished the year with 5.5 YPC in VERY LIMITED play as his YPC "rapidly"Â￾ went down.

    Heck, even Matt Forte disappointed in his second season for the Bears, so other than Chester Taylor- who showcased lots of talent for the Vikings- who might we predict would be better than Sharp on their team? This has me scratching my head.

    If Sharp makes it in the NFL, he will have to have a "Danny Woodhead like" pre-season game and be picked up by another "fairer"Â￾ team like the Packers, Colts, Patriots or Texans as their 3rd or 4th back and work his way up a depth chart. He will face long odds in this OBVIOUSLY racist league.

    Feel free to initiate DWF message board debate guys, and I will try to join you if I have time if you send links via PM, although it will be futile. I HATIE the Bears!

    My post last year in "The Bears are Nuts" thread was almost prophetic:

    First they cut Eric Peterman to keep Rashied Davis and Devin Aromashodu, which was the most caste move of the year IMO for any team- other than the RACIST NUTJOB stuff going on in Denver. Now they sign scrub RB Kahlil Bell off their practice squad. O.k where am I going here, he made a 72 yard run on his first carry, so I must be the one who's nuts here right? Well let me diagram the special treatment this guy has gotten, that a white RB wouldn't have a chance in hell of getting.

    At UCLA, late in the 2007-2008 season, Kahlil Bell blew out a knee. He comes back in 2008-2009 and averages a ridiculously paltry 2.8 YPC on a whole "141 CARRIES". O.k, so maybe you could say he hadn't gotten his "grove" back after that injury. Bell still gets a combine invite based on "potential" and what does he do there.. Read the following from the NFLdraftscout newswire, the first from his Pro Day:

    04/02/09 - Brian Dohn, who covers UCLA football for the Los Angeles Newspaper Group, had this to say about former Marin Catholic High standout Kahlil Bell from the Bruins' showcase for pro scouts Wednesday: Running back Kahlil Bell said his goal was to improve his 40 time from the NFL combine, where he ran a 4.78, but it didn't work out that way. Scouts timed him at 4.74. "The only thing I felt I could have done better than I did at the combines was the 40 time, because it wasn't what I wanted it to be," Bell said. "I don't know what I ran (Tuesday), but I was happy with it. I was never the fastest guy, never a blazer, but I always got the job done on the field when I was healthy." - Marin Independent-Journal (My take: yeah, so has Jake Sharp, actually more so and he'll probably run a 4.38!)

    08/09/09 - RB Kahlil Bell was waived by Minnesota. RB Kahlil Bell has been out for much of camp because of an ankle injury.. (But he's still not done in the NFL- and who better to put this guy, who shouldn't be near the league, in a position to succeed than Hatie Smiff and Jerry Angelo).

    09/16/09 - RB Kahlil Bell signed with the Bears' practice squad, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

    11/21/09 - RB Khalil Bell was signed to Chicago's active roster from the practice squad.

    So Bell comes in and on his first NFL carry he gets a hole big enough to drive a truck through that even a guy with a 4.78 40 can run through straight ahead for 72 yards. Then Collingsworthless starts fawning over this afrolete as if he's some kind of savior and they talk about how you have to go all the way back to the 50s to the Colts' Alan Ameche to find a longer first NFL carry. This guy wouldn't have even gotten a SINGLE NFL SCOUT to even watch him WORK OUT if he was white. Other than the Broncos this is the 2nd most caste team in the league. TEAM MANAGERS like Brock Forsey (who was 2nd to Barry Sanders for rush TDs in a an FBS season) go there to die. What the hell was Eric Peterman thinking signing with this POS team, I thought he was a Northwestern "GRADUATE". This is a team where black scrubs go to be loved and white players go to rot on the bench and be Hatied by Smiff.

    Jake Sharp is actually PLAYING with a NAGGING INJURY and still putting up significantly better stats than Bell did as a senior, but Sharp probably won't get a combine invite because he's not AFROLETIC. The NFL is scared because Sharp would probably beat Bell's 40 time by about 0.4 seconds and prove there's discrimination...(oh wait, I forgot the media and fans are too stupid or racist to believe that). I don't know, maybe this POS team will draft Sharp to make him their next team mascot for guys like Bell and then cut him. I mean with Matt Forte doing so poorly this year in YPC, maybe even Bell could look good to the numb-brained fans in Obama's Chicago while drinking their $8 beers. He is well on his way with a 4 carry for 81 yard performance in his first game.

    With Forte, Taylor, Bell, and Wolfe, Sharp has absolutely no chance. None whatsoever.

    I'm not suggesting that those losers are "good players," but rather, that Sharpe is a white man, and thus, is required to be absolutely flawless (which typically doesn't help that much either) in order to supplant a football player of African decent.

    Best case scenario"¦every Bears RB get injured and Sharp gets his tiny opportunity to shine. No, Lovie would probably sign Corey Dillon or some other has-been.

    Jake Sharp is another fleet-footed White athlete who did not run track ... in college anyway. i wish that every White skill position player would go out for track at university, even if just for the speed work.

    we see so many black football players run track (Holliday from LSU andSpiller and Ford from Clemson are some quick examples from this year's Draft class) and get drafted despite often being tiny and not very productive on the college football field. why? because "they have speed," as we're told time and again.

    Sharp is likely as fast as Ford and Spiller and is a much bigger man than Holliday. so why didn't he run track? then, he'd have more evidence to throw in the faces of all the fools who say he doesn't have the athleticism to carry the rock in the NFL.

    another player who was completely ignored by the NFL Draft (and most CFers, as well) was Michigan State's Danny Fortener. Fortener reportedly has a mythically fast40 time and was alleged to be the fastest player on the field in most every game he played ... yet he didn't run track, nor did he get any recognition or cash from the NFL.

    these guys need to rub their speed in the faces of everyone until the caste system is smashed.

    Jimmy let's not forget about another white athletic freak in Nate Soelberg. The best 100m time I found for him was 10.34 but I am sure he ran faster than that. He ran a 4.2 flat 40 which would give him speed equal to Chris Johnson.

    Jake Sharp has already been dismissed by the Chicago Black Bears. Should we have even had a glimmer of hope that possibly the most racist team in the VERY RACIST NFL (headed by Hatie Smiff and Jerry Bungholo) would give this white man (with world class speed, great receiving skills, nice agility and impressive stats; as a junior he had 1,100 all purpose yards in just 8 games as the starter) a chance? Nahhh, his melanin deficiency is all they see. Sharp was just the team manager for mini-camp. Hatie had this to say:

    Hatie Smiff: I done told you already boi! We don't want ya round here no more Mr. SISTUH Forsey! You were uh team mascot/managuh, whateva, already! Take that long bus ride home ovuh that bridge with the sign that darn sayzz "bridge out"..hahaha. Just make sure ya ride in the back, we dun need a whitey bus boycott now...or should I say sinkin bus boycott. I sayz since ya a small back, ya be the last tuh sink...hahaha!

    Jake Sharp: I'm not Brock Forsey you ebonics HATUH! If I wanted revenge I'd be suing you and yur Black Bears, but I know I'll be treated with more respect in the great white north's CFL!

    Black Bears Dismiss Sharp

    Sharp looking for work
    Former Jayhawk won't be invited back to Bears camp

    By Matt Tait
    Kansas running back Jake Sharp watches the action from the bench during the fourth quarter against Duke Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

    Kansas running back Jake Sharp watches the action from the bench during the fourth quarter against Duke Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

    Jake Sharp's first shot at the NFL didn't last long.

    After spending a few days in a Chicago Bears uniform earlier this month, the former Kansas University running back is searching for another place to play.

    Sharp was invited to the Bears' rookie minicamp shortly after April's NFL Draft, but KUSports.com learned Tuesday that Sharp would not be invited back for the team's regular minicamp (May 21-23) or Organized Team Activities, which begin June 2.

    While with the Bears, Sharp, who wore No. 36, made a decent impact.

    "He did look pretty quick,"Â￾ said Larry Mayer, who covers the Bears for the team's official website, "especially coming out of the backfield to catch passes."Â￾

    Despite not sticking with the Bears, many experts still believe there's a place in the NFL for a guy with Sharp's speed and toughness, just as there has been for San Diego running back Darren Sproles and New England wide receiver Wes Welker. Of course, the things that kept Sharp from being drafted in the first place â€" such as size and stats (BS, plenty of RBs or WRs his size who are MUCH slower and/or have less productive FBS careers make an NFL roster) â€" figure to be his biggest obstacle to making an NFL roster.

    I think some of you guys are, perhaps, being a bit unfair to Bears' GM Jerry Angelo. He absolutely loved Forsey -- said he thought hewould bean absolutesteal when he stuck out his neck to select to him. Bottom line is Forsey had a spot on the Bears roster and even got some starts and played well when Dick Jauron was coaching. Forsey didn't become a laughingstock "ballboy" until Lovie got the job.

    Also, if I'm not mistaken, Smith and Angelo got into a heated argument a few years ago when Smith was refusing to play Mike Hass in games. Angelo personally courtedMike to sign with Chicago, when he found out Hass grew up a Bears fan in Oregon. He made the team, but Lovie sat him (inactive) 15 or 16 weeks, which Angelo didn't like.

    Dating back to his days in Tampa, for example, Jerry has drafted a lot of white DB's. In Tampa he inherited Lynch at SS, but tried to get a others, too -- J. Howell, D. Gibson, T. Merrill. But non became starters with Dungy, Herm Edwards and Lovie running the defense.

    In Chicago he's drafted Todd Johnson and Craig Steltz fairlyhigh. Also signed Cameron Worrell, Adam Arculeta and others.

    Is it possible Angelo is being fair to these guys (even UFA's like Sharpe. Petermanand others), but at the end of the of day the coaches have the final say and run these guys out of town as soon as they can?

    If Jerry Angelo really thought Hatie Smiff was being unfair to the white players he brings in, he should pull for No Lovie the White Man's firing. The GM who builds the team often has more pull than the head coach (Hatie's simply the locker room/practice/"morale" leader...does he even call defensive plays anymore?), but Angelo is probably a pu$$y. The GM makes the final call for the player cuts.

    I myself have wondered if Hatie is the main culprit- since Angelo mentioned in a media interview that he didn't understand Hass being inactive in 2008, once the Bears were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs (when they could see what the young player and Biletnikoff award winner's got). Is the team owner much more in the Hatie camp than Angelo one? Hatie's got to go, but the pussified Angelo has to go too I think. He drafts and signs these white players and they get buried on the roster and he just cuts them- which makes him one of our most hated guys in the NFL for being a company prostitute pu$$y and helping to destroy their careers.

    I have no idea who has the final say in every case, but I doubt Angelo is picking guys like Todd Johnson and Steltz, then hyping them up as future starters, if he feels they project to be nothing more than career special teams mascots. Obviously him and the coaches aren't always on the same page and the coaches seem to always win.

    Lovie has to be one of the most powerful coaches in the NFL simply because he's the highest paidcoach in the NFL, over the likes of Belicick and others. Does that give him a lot power? I'd say it has too. Matter of fact, for some inexplicable reason, he's one of the highest paid coaches (in any sport)on the "planet" [​IMG]

    http://www.businesspundit.com/the-25-highest-paid-sports-coaches-in-the-world/

    Also, telling the McCaskey's (rabid liberal Democrats)to fire Lovie would be tantamount to telling the Rooney's in Pittsburgh to fireTomlin. It won't happen that easy. Also, even if Angelo was reallyupset about how guys like Hass, Sharpeand Forsey are being treated, do you think the fans or the feeble minded media members in Chi-town would do anything but laugh in his face?Edited by: Truthteller

    Some solid points Truthteller, but I tend to get aggravated with guys who just simply lay down their virtues and doing what's right in the name of money and prestige. Maybe Angelo is trying, but as Yoda says "don't try...DO!"

    Angelo should grow some backbone and resign and try to find a job with another team in the future (and with the recent mainstream articles on Gerhart that elude to the caste system, he could mention the Brock Forsey "team manager" comment and treatment of Biletnikoff award winner Mike Hass as things he's noticed about how white players are treated by the coaches and fans in Chicago). I don't believe in compromising your beliefs to keep a job, which is why I moved out of pathetic "dirty jerz".

    BTW here are my RB rankings for this last draft. Jake Sharp was ranked 9th. I jumped him up after a great Pro Day and considering his stellar receiving skills and possible game breaking ability if tried as a returner. He'd make a great complimentary scatback and could return punts or kicks too!

    RB:
    1. Toby Gerhart
    2. Jahvid Best
    3. C.J Spiller (I dropped him down after watching extensive highlights of him because he's too much like Reggie Bush. He might be a little bit better of a rusher than Bush up the middle, but like Bush isn't an "elite" rusher. He's a phenom receiver out of the backfield and a crazy good returner though.

    Does anyone know if Sharp has been signed as a free agent?

    I think Smith is retreating into "Its all a racist conspiracy against a brother" thought mode. The DWFs can be divided into two groups, true believers in white inferiority or those who go along because it is group think that is rewarded. But the latter is a bunch of passive-aggressives with a streak of sociopathic behavior and when they sense blood they are the worst, and Chicago DWF Bear's fans are the worst of the worst at this. I pray for a Smith "they are all racists" outburst, and I believe it will come this year.
