    Another Sunday where it seems I didn't miss a damn thing. Jordy had another good day, but Cobb was targeted more, 13 times, to Jordy's nine.

    Jordy caught every single target this week, but I'm sure the drop from last week was still mentioned and will still be mentioned.

    I didn't know it was that bad down there. According to city-data Miami is only 12% White, is that true or are most of those Hispanics who make up 70% of Miami's population White Cubans ?

    The Cowboys offense have looked as good as any in the NFL in the last half of the season. The increased use of Cole Beasely has been the main factor imo that has risen this offense to the upper level they always seemed to fail to get to. This is not a bad team to root for. With Beasely and Witten - along with the long derided Tony Romo. Yep, I know Romo is not 100% white but he is to the eye test and that is all that really matters in how we are perceived.

    These are all valid points. Still it's not the party boy or even the spoiled rich kid angle that gets me. It's the black posse and disrespectfull way in which he carries himself.

    Most importantly he is seriously undersized without an NFL arm or ability to play in the pocket. He is a hell of a competitor though.

    It was mentioned in the first quarter, the announcers called it "the biggest drop" of last week. Right after they brought it up, Jordy had a great catch on a high throw by Rodgers.

    Jordy received lots of praise during the game.

    I must have heard it said at least 5 times today by talking heads that "Teddy Bridgewater is the best young QB in the NFL". Ladanian Tomlinson just corrected his braindead White colleagues. Telling them that Carr was in fact the most impressive young QB.

    He was widely praised for having one of the stronger arms prior to the draft. Watch the 2012 Texas A&M vs Alabama game to see it in action, he delivers several strikes to Swope.
    As far as the whole wigger thing, I think that's overblown, he's professional and respectful when addressing the media, it seems like the guy just likes to let loose on his own time. He's not as likeable as a guy like Hoyer or Foles, but he's better "behaved" than the average NFL player and he's got a load of talent.

    Well stated Spaniard! The ONLY reason to dislike Manziel, or to consider him not good enough is the propaganda war. There isnt any evidence at all that he lacks arm strength. He was the best college football player thats ever put on cleats. The only thing that can hold him down is sabotage.

    Tampa Bay covered the deep ball well. Rodgers looked deep a couple of times to Nelson but didn't pull the trigger. Regardless, Nelson was the recipient of Rodgers' lone touchdown.

    The Packers seem more likely than ever to re-sign Cobb and I don't have a problem with that. He's one of the league's best #2 receivers and draws double teams away from Nelson. Davante Adams has poor hands and rightfully would not be paid much attention to by opposing defenses as Cobb's replacement.

    Even if Cobb is re-signed, the Packers could conceivably have three wide receivers after the 2015 final cuts. Jarrett Boykin has fallen off a cliff and will likely be replaced. Jared Abbrederis will be in position to do just that if he recovers from the torn ACL he suffered at the beginning of training camp this year.

    The team is very high on Jeff Janis for good reason. He has nearly identical size and speed to Nelson. Nelson will be 33 at the end of his current deal, at which point Janis would likely take his place.

    I think Ted Thompson is more colorblind than racially aware but it's rare for any team to draft two white wide receivers in a single draft, let alone rostering that many. Also rare is the fact that Thompson is one of few GMs who prefers white offensive lineman, having a starting 5 that is nearly 100% white for virtually the entire season (Bakhtiari is half Icelandic/half Persian). The Packers are in position to be the whitest offense for a long time.

    The Romo + Witten combo is unstoppable.

    I myself am of partial (white) Cuban origin. I'd say that 12% figure is probably made up of whites of non-hispanic origin, so it's not as bad as it looks but as far as football at the high school and college levels go, the caste system is in full swing. You even have dumb ass (c)rappers like Luther Campbell and Flo Rida getting involved at those levels as well. Football is perceived as a black sport here in South Florida (and it shows as evidenced by the empty stadiums) White kids from this area have since opted for baseball as an alternative to an unfair system which won't even give talented white football players a look.

    I personally wish that ALL White kids would just forget about football. I know thats not gonna happen because I played from 5th grade until my SR year of high school, and there is NO WAY I would have quit. The love of the game was so deep inside me, and I had no knowledge of the caste system.

    The fact is that the NCAA, and NFL are in full attack on White players. I know this is an unpopular statement, but they WILL accomplish their end goal. NO White players at all. It might be 10 years from now, or it might take 30, but its GONNA happen. They will do absolutely what ever it takes. Including blackmail, bribery, intimidation, or even more sinister actions. These psychopaths are not at all concerned with winning football games. They want to destroy our people, and thats ALL they want.

    It's the classic double standard that is used by the MSM to denigrate white men. They can either be uncool square boy scout nerds or out of control degenerate party animals. Blacks can rob, cheat, beat women, gamble, go to strip clubs, get busted for drugs, it doesn't matter, just makes them cooler to the fans. But just let Johnny Football have some fun and be successful then the whole phoney paradigm is wrecked. So they have to stop it. So far they have been very successful. The NFL doesn't like white guys ruining their propaganda campaign.

    Buffalo officially eliminated from playoffs. They will need to upgrade at the qb position in the off-season. Neither Manuel or Orton are the answer.

    There was a definite rift on this site regarding whether or not the Browns should of sat or started Manziel. He should of sat all year and learned the nuances of the game. There is no support cast on that team for any rookie QB to be successful. His receivers drop balls, run the wrong routes, the RBs are average at best. He does have the talent to be successful, Kyle Shannahan needs to tailor the offense away from the spread option nonsense he ran in Washington to a more pro style offense. People need to stop writing him off though, the Browns did use a 1st round pick on him so I do not think they are going to just write him off.

    Just ignore the media or if you don't like what they are saying post on stories and call out the dwfs and authors of the bogus **** the post. The instant gratification in our society has just as much to do with this as does the caste system.

    Orton isn't a bad QB. I think a young white QB to groom behind him for a year or two would be a good thing.

    How do they upgrade? Wasn't Buffalo supposed to suck really bad but Orton made them relevant until week 16? Now he's not the answer? Is every team supposed to have a Manning/Brady or they have no chance? Jay Cutler is the highest paid player in the league. He was benched. How is Buffalo going to upgrade?

    I hear ya man...I was watching the game, Bilgewater throws a 2-yard dump off that Rhett Ellison takes 30+ yards downfield. Instantly the other forum I visit is lit up with "Man dat Bridgewater's good!" garbage and not a word about Ellison.

    Did anyone catch the exchange between Dan Patrick and Harrison? I turned on the show and I think they were talking about getting a QB for Oakland - I am assuming Dan Patrick asked the dumb question about drafting either Mariota or Jameez and Harrison said they already had a very good young QB in Oakland. Can anyone verify?

    They should draft Jameez, Hundley, or Prescott. Guaranteed to go 16-0 and win the super bowl with all that upside

    Lol. Prescott is a 7th round fullback. Hundley is just going to be another QB that sets a franchise back and Jameez is going to be a trainwreck.

    I personally believe Manziel should have started from the beginning. If RGscreen, Scam Newton, Russel Wilson, and Teddy Toiletwater can have immediate success then there is no reason to think Manziel couldnt. HOWEVER if you are not going to start him from the beginning then you need to sit him for the entire season. Dont throw him in there with all the pressure of trying to get in the playoffs on HIS shoulders!

    The way the Browns handled this kid was the absolute WORST possible way to handle him in his rookie season. It was the perfect situation to make him look bad. I believe this was intentional. Add to that the ridiculous play calling once he DID finally get in there, and there is pretty much no arguing that they werent trying to sabotage him.

    Scam, Toucan and RGScreen were beneficiaries of the spread/zone/read option coming into the league at the same time as they did. Once NFL defenses caught up to them as we have seen this year they all have become mediocre to bad QBs. Wilson is a good game manager, has a strong defense and the best running game in the league to support him - he wouldn't have the success without the foundation already in place and very good playcalling. Once Lynch goes we shall see how good Wilson really is. Toiletwater has been average - he has had worse games then Manziel did last week. Norv Turner is a really good coordinator and QB guru (as long as a bad head coach). Toiletwater does get the benefit of being black and being able to have growing pains without being criticized.

    Look at how the Seahawks just started out with two TE sets and a run heavy scheme. Wilson throws a ton of safe short to intermediate passes. Kyle Shannahan should take note for Manziel.

    Obviously not every team is going to have a manning/brady. The entire objective of the Orton signing was that he was a veteran who had a knack of making limited mistakes and come in to help lead the teams to the playoffs if Manuel(as expected) faltered, but that's not been the case the last few years. While Orton is an upgrade over Manuel, he is just too inconsistent. They are not going to reach the playoffs next season with the same formula. Their defense may be top 10 with Kiko back, but Orton will likely hold the the team back from reaching the playoffs. They need to try and find an upgrade.
