    Good to see Welker get a TD. I still hate Denver though.

    Hartline has been targeted once, has one catch, 18 yards. Almost completely ignored, as usual.

    Why did Honda think it was a good idea to have a middle aged, overweight black man with a comb in his hair be their pitchman?

    Me and my dad were laughing at that. Dude just looks dirty. The Japs know Americans love black men, no matter how stupid they look.

    The Dolphins appear to be phasing Brian Hartline out. This is after two consecutive 1000 yard seasons for Hartline.

    It just shows that even if a white man plays well some teams will try to replace him.

    The way Hartline is being screwed over this season is criminal. I read a post on weenieworld not too long ago that his targets are like half those of last year. Why? He had back to back 1,000 yard campaigns. I wouldn't be surprised if they phase him out and have an afflete starting next season.

    Just saw that commercial for the first time a few seconds ago. My guess is that he's some sort of washed up (c)rapper.

    ESPN's front page has a shot of the Seahawks, and 4 out of the 5 players in the shot appear to be white. A photographer could follow that team for another month and never line up that shot again!

    Yeah, I don't really know whats going on with Hartline. The Dolphins DWF's despise him merely for his lack of melanin and his supposed lack of YAC. Jarvis Landry is the favorite of the DWF's. I like Landry as well, as he has been a pleasant surprise but the DWF's downplay Hartline while boosting up Landry all because of "dat upside"

    On a side note, I've actually met Brian Hartline here in Miami. Extremely nice guy. Does a lot for the community as well. My biggest fear is he goes to another team and "Wes Welkers" the Fins. That one still stings. Thanks Saban! :mad2:

    Sanchez had the type of performance that would of caused Foles to get roundly criticized but I haven't heard anything like that for Sanchez. I'm not a Sanchez guy and don't consider him as white. If his last name was Smith and he was white he would of ended up getting screwed over like Barkley did. Sanchez had a ton of hype prior to the 2009 draft and was a media darling for a few seasons. I just find myself not really liking the guy, he seems to think that the job is now his from all I hear and have read.

    So, Odell Beckham is from the same high school as the Mannings, and was in the Manning football camps, and ends up being drafted by the Giants. But, Don Wassall tells us not to criticize Eli Manning for never having a white receiver, because he's not the GM. It's all a coincidence.

    No offense but this Beckham kid, at least early on, looks like the real deal. There's a million other black busts to criticize.

    I'm not criticizing Beckham. My point is that many on this site have criticized Eli for his comments about slow white defensive backs, and the fact that he never thrown a pass to a white receiver in his career. He does have a say in the personnel moves.

    I said it before, if Miami continues to phase Hartline out, he could resurrect his career in New England, who could probably sign him for cheap if the Dolphins cut him. Not that I would want him to get underpaid, but Brady, Bellicheck and maybe Garrafollo could definitely help him turn things around. The Welker route indeed.

    After Cole Beasley's 45-yard TD, the cameras zoomed in on Eli "Slow-ass white guy" Manning's very punchable face, and he had a rather confused look. He was probably wondering how the heck did a white WR just score a TD like that, having never thrown to a white WR his entire life.

    Sorry I icsept, I did get your point, mine was just that if I were trying to win football games, I would lobby to draft Beckham as well--he seems to have all the tools to be at worst a very good WR. We are definitely in agreement about Eli and his famous "slow white..." I can't even say it BS.

    Dallas' O-Line played great giving Romo time, finding Whitten who was clutch tonight with a TD early and several key catches including the huge one on the game-winning drive and coupled with Romo finding Bryant for that TD after having time to have a cup of coffee back there.

    O-linemen Frederick, Martin, and Free are making a big difference for Romo and Murray to do what they can do. Good to see Beasley had the two (or three) great catches and as was said by others, that TD catch and run was so good it put a priceless look on Eli's face.

    It's also good that Dallas won because that catch by Beckham was indeed phenomenal, and the huggers would have worshipped the guy (even more) if the Midgets had won.

    The clowns over at ESPN are giving more attention to the catch than they are the Cowboys' victory

    I've been watching games all season and I don't know how many stupid personal fouls I've seen committed by the dominant demographic this year, sometimes in crunch time of close games, right in front of God and everybody, including the officials. No impulse control, and what seems to be a complete loss of awareness of where they are. Such costly behaviour truly puzzles me.

    No wonder Chucky Cheeses and waffle houses don't stand a chance when a bunch of them show up.

    I actually heard 2 prominent sports talk show hosts in Philly say they would give up a two consecutive year first round picks for CAM NEWTON!!!! I almost had to pull over to barf. The same guy said he gave up on Foles after he threw 2 bad interceptions in the Giants games that they WON decisively! And he wants a guy who throws even worse interceptions to lose games. It is so illogical. Foles makes Kelly look like a genius last year...goes 14-2.... now Foles gets hurt and they look like crap and everyone in Philly has given up on him. The guy always keeps the Eagles in every game. Even when his stats don't look good, he scores when points are needed. He gets those big drives going when they have to score points. And these idiots would rather have Cam Newton who

    This really bugs me. Imagine if the Eagles gave up on McCoy- who is doing HORRIBLE this year behind a much better O-line than Gerhart has. Now he is starting to pick up steam a bit. It's what bad teams do though. They don't look at the season long-term. If you have a talented player who is struggling, you don't just yank him- even if the replacement appears to be playing better. In Philly, Polk was playing much better than McCoy, and certainly Sproles was too, but Chip didn't ever waiver from our guy as tempting as it probably was. A shame what is happening to Toby. He is the better player who is being outplayed for a short time, but the law of averages will come to play soon and this stupid coach will have ruined a good player.
