    ESPN / Adam Schefter actually had the audacity to have an article titled “Sources: NFL hopeful that Myles Garrett won’t miss games next season” on the front page of their website

    As if he’s some sort of victim.

    Myles Garret is a victim of white privilege. He just a good boy turning his life around. He writes poems you know?

    Here's something I disagree with. The Saints' Mitchell Loewen is a stud defensive lineman. I have been impressed with him every time he had a chance to play.

    Checking in on Mitchell Loewen and his new role with the Saints that's 'not for the faint of heart'

    They moved him from DL, to TE. It seems only White Athletes playing on the DL have to worry about a possible position switch.

    IMO moving a White player from DL to OL or TE is never acceptable because there's really no way, in this era, that it's not being done for Caste reasons.

    Myles Garett is also one of the players who took a knee during the Anthem to protest police "brutality." A poet pacifist ( yea right) who at the spur of the moment decided to try and crush a white player's skull using his six pound helmet like a hammer. That whole let's support the drug runners take a knee garbage under the guise of a police protest was never about pacifism. It was about black power.

    And the Browns owner is hip to the beat too.

    Thanks. Yes, I do follow the Bills. Josh Allen, Cole Beasley, Dawson Knox, Trent Murphy and Matt Milano give me something to cheer for each week. Slowly, but surely, things are trending in the right direction under Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott. I also loved when Beane had no qualms about hiring Brian Gaine back almost immediately after he was dismissed as GM of the Texans even with the air of "racism" as somehow being involved in his firing being championed by many Marxist Media Mavens. Watching this team was a nightmare during the reign of Dougtavious Whaley and Fat Rex. Hopefully, things will continue to trend in the right direction, starting with a Sumo purge on the O-Line !!!

    I noticed Packers signed Jared Veldheer as insurance for a banged up Bryan Bulaga.

    I've been looking at what has been said about Myles Garrett hitting Mason Rudolph in the head with a helmet.

    As might be predicted blacks and white liberals, for the most part, defend Garrett and blame Rudolph. You can always predict their behavior.

    One of the most egregious examples of blaming white victims is the "Jena 6" case. A mob of blacks attacked and beat down a white man who was doing nothing but walking. The attackers were portrayed as victims by the white liberals and blacks. An example of this is America hating, scumbag, leftist musician John Cougar Mellencamp. He wrote a despicable song about "The Jena 6" portraying the black criminals as victims.

    Using 20/20 hindsight, the worst decision of the year was Adam Humphries signing with Tennessee when the Patriots were seriously wooing him. He now has just 36 catches for 361 yards and one TD on the season. Even with Ryan Tannehill playing great after replacing the minor leaguer the Titans stuck with for so long, Humphries has had just 4, 1, and 3 receptions the past three games. New England could have used him in a big way and he would be shining along with Edelman instead of being all but forgotten in Nashville.

    Humphries has gotten those 36 catches on just 45 targets, which is top-notch, so maybe Tannehill will start throwing to him more at some point down the stretch, but still. . . what could have been if he had signed with New England.

    Humphries decision also had a bad effect on the Patriots. The 1st round pick on Harry, the Antonio Brown debacle, and trading a 2nd rounder for a season and a half of Sanu probably wouldn't have happened if Humphries signed and then performed at a high level.

    Patriots have also mis-managed the wide receiver position badly, especially in the draft in recent years, when they passed on Kupp, Kittle, and Renfrow,

    Here's a perfect example of the double standard White defenders have to live with. Black defenders miss badly on a regular basis and it's forgotten by the end of the game if noticed at all, but a single bad angle or missed tackle has the potential to end a White defender's career no matter how well he plays in general. Ironically, Gerry's missed tackle was against Rex Burkhead. And notice the dig at Burkhead, who's made plenty of big plays with the Patriots:

    How Eagles' Nate Gerry is moving on from costly blown tackle vs. Patriots

    Nate Gerry actually played well Sunday.

    Except one play.

    That play.

    Gerry had a game-high 10 tackles, a tackle for loss, a QB hurry and a sack in the Eagles’ 17-10 loss to the Patriots Sunday.

    And a blown tackle.

    A really, really, really ugly one.


    That whiff was responsible for the game’s pivotal play, Rex Burkhead’s 30-yard catch and run that set up the Patriots’ only touchdown, the game-winner.

    Gerry was in perfect position to bring Burkhead down for no gain, maybe a yard, but Burkhead broke free and raced down the left sideline before Avonte Maddox finally brought him down at the Eagles’ 30-yard-line. . .

    Gerry is one of only five players in the NFL with two sacks and two interceptions and only the third Eagles linebacker since Jeremiah Trotter in 2001 with two sacks and two INTs in the same season. DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks both did in 2013.

    But ask anybody who watched Eagles-Patriots about Gerry and they'll only remember one play.

    Which is understandable.

    It’s a tackle he has to make.


    Burkhead, who preceeded Gerry by four years at Nebraska, is 5-10, 215 and not exactly a big-time playmaker. That was only his second career reception of 30 yards or more in seven NFL seasons.

    The couple of Titans games I have seen I have noticed that Humphries does not get a lot of snaps. Instead of being a steady starter presence he has been relegated to back up status, a curious move for someone who nabbed a nice contract package and looked to be a rising star. He did grab the winning touchdown from Tannehill in their big win against the Chiefs but it is surprising that he hasn't been given a bigger role at least so far. He barely played in that game.

    I too am more comfortable with Tannehill as QB and I guess with a few games left the hope is Humphries starts to play a bigger role down the stretch. Overall though the Titans continue to be a very caste team though.

    Just saw the billboard and it is generating a ton of buzz. Coming soon to Broadway the most anticipated musical of the year:

    "Nate Gerry Missed A Tackle"

    It'll be interesting to see if Braxton Berrios gets more targets for the Jets after that good catch and run last week or if he's demoted back to his punt return duties.

    This is the kind of mistake we have seen white players make before. They take the biggest contract offer instead of going to a team that will better utilize them. Ironically, Humphries could have eventually made more money by signing with New England.

    This and his reasoning was very flawed. A 45 year-old Tom Brady would STILL be better than Marcus Mariota, who was the entrenched starter at the time of Humphries' decision.

    I bet Brady wishes he had Humphries right about now, and maybe a few other of the "overachieving" WRs they've quickly discarded the past two seasons, e.g., Chris Hogan and Chad Hansen among others:

    On Sunday night, there was no more hiding his emotions. All Sunday night, NBC’s cameras showed Brady coming off the field looking like he was about to explode. Once, he was shown yelling at his receivers, and it looked like a lot of his ire was being directed at Phillip Dorsett.

    The fact about the Patriots’ offense is they don’t have a lot of receiving talent after old reliable Julian Edelman and running back James White. That seemed clear as the Patriots struggled to move the ball for most of a 28-22 loss to the Houston Texans.

    At one point in the third quarter the Patriots went for it on fourth-and-inches, called a play to get Mohamed Sanu open and Brady hit him in the hands. Sanu dropped it. That summed up the night. The Texans scored a dagger touchdown right after that.

    Tom Brady frustrated all night

    Brady yelling at his teammates was easy for everyone to see. Amateur lip readers on social media ascertained that Brady was telling his receivers they needed to be “faster, quicker, more explosive.” That was the easy part to see for anyone watching at home, as was Sanu’s bad drop.

    There seemed to be plenty of other things going on. Former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky posted a video on Twitter in which he pointed out that it seemed Dorsett missed a hand signal to run a double move, and Brady was irate as he explained what happened to offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on the sideline. Maybe Orlovsky’s description after watching on TV wasn’t exactly what happened, but something set Brady off. Houston took Edelman away and that should have opened things up for others, but nobody other than White took advantage. The Patriots didn’t get in the end zone until White caught a touchdown from Brady with 11 seconds left in the third quarter. Then New England, which has had trouble finding a healthy and reliable kicker, missed the extra point after taking a delay of game penalty.

    While Brady might never publicly talk about his frustration, it’s obvious the Patriots offense is struggling.

    Forget what game I was watching but one of the corporate employees said that this is the year of the running quarterback.

    I think I heard something about that last year.

    And the year before that.

    And so on.
