    Was pleased to see Bengals replace Vigil with another Blue Collared guy in Wilson. Win/win as it looks like Vigil will start for LAC. @Don Wassall

    Looking forward to seeing Erickson's progression after a breakout year. I'd say he's proven his worth in the slot and as a returner!

    @Shadowlight definitely agree that was a positive for The Bengals and couldn't agree more about Hubbard. True Football Player with pass rushing ability,hustle, and loves to tackle. Should have been a 1st RD Pick!

    You also do a good job at finding the positive in Arizona. They could surprise doubters like me lol.

    *By the way I've got another "Tayson Hill Type Player" for you @Shadowlight . Check out Small Schooler Cole Kelley.

    6'6 260 was a backup QB last season and still added 10YDs passing and 10TDs rushing!

    Erickson isn't in a good spot as of now as far as playing time. He was finally "allowed" to play last year mainly because A. J. Green was injured all season, and of course John Ross was also per usual. Now Green is supposedly healthy, and the Bengals drafted Tee Higgins in the second round to start outside opposite Green. That leaves Erickson stuck behind Tyler Boyd in the slot, and Boyd is a good receiver. So unless there are injuries again Erickson will see his playing time reduced. At this point he's only fifth or sixth on the depth chart at receiver, so even his roster spot isn't guaranteed. I think he could be a thousand yard receiver, as he showed in limited playing time in '19, but that's not how the NFL works.

    Here is another lie from weenieworld. The Giants have nowhere close to one of the best skill position groups in the NFL - Barkley is good, Tate is reliable underneath, Engram is overrated and oft-injured (can't block), Shepard is average and Slayton was the benificiary of additional reps with Daniel Jones during the offseason/training camp which allowed them to develop a rapport. Weenieworld of course makes out Daniel Jones to be some bad quarterback though when in fact he was a very dynamic, exciting and productive rookie. Glad I was able to set the record straight.

    Giants coach Joe Judge said the offense will be “similarly based” off what OC Jason Garrett ran in Dallas.
    That is potentially bad news for the Giants' offense. Before Cowboys OC Kellen Moore revitalized the offense last season, Dallas annually had one of the slowest-paced and run-heaviest offenses under Garrett's watch. If he doesn't make adjustments to what he was running in the early and mid-2010s, then the Giants' ceiling will be capped despite having one of the best skill-position groups in the NFL. Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard, and Darius Slayton have the potential to hide a lot of Daniel Jones' weaknesses in 2020 as long as Garrett can keep up with modern times. Garrett hasn't called plays since 2012.

    Wow, that's outrageous even for Weenieworld. What exactly are Daniel Jones' "weaknesses"? He had a very promising and productive rookie year despite playing behind a bad offensive line. If he was black and the skill position players White, the blurb would be written in the opposite way, a potential franchise quarterback propping up the weaknesses of a mediocre group of receivers and an injury prone tight end.

    Here's a real doozy:

    TMZ reports Giants CB Deandre Baker and Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar have been "accused of armed robbery" and had warrants issued for their arrest.
    The gossip site reports Baker is facing four charges of armed robbery and four charges of aggravated assault with a firearm following a dispute at a cookout in Miramar, Fla. It is the same for Dunbar, minus the assault charges. Baker is alleged to have "whipped out a semi-automatic firearm" before he and Dunbar "began to rob party guests, taking watches and other valuables at the direction of Baker." Baker is also alleged to have asked a third man to shoot someone. No shooting took place, however. The duo allegedly departed with "$7,000 in cash and valuable watches including an $18,000 Rolex watch, a $25,000 Hublot and a pricey Audemars Piguet timepiece." More details should emerge soon. The Giants have said they are aware of the situation.

    What could these idiots be thinking? I’m sure some people at the party knew who they were and they decided to do that because they lost $70K a few days earlier. Did they think they’d actually get away with that? Wow I get amazed by the stupidity of some of these professional athletes every single time.

    Baker a 1st rounder with a 9mil guaranteed contract, also a goof who took an interception to the 1yard line then dropped the ball. But no doubt a 5 star recruit which then helped him land the big deal in the draft, I certainly hope no conservative mocks the sanctity of CFB recruiting that might actually damage the institution of college football.

    Baker was actually very bad as a rookie on the field. Now this armed robbery on top of it - one has to laugh when the caste system comes back to bite the NFL. You could probably wipe out a solid percentage of football players if colleges were not able to recruit players with a criminal record - probably a 1/4 of all affletes.

    Yeah I don't follow that draft nonsense too tedious for me, and since it is obviously corrupt basically useless except as an anti-talent evaluator, but I would bet during the 2019 draft cycle his "Star" rating was batted about like badminton birdies by the caste clowns. At my Deploristan high school football program a couple of years ago the only rating interest was for a mullato kid who played wideout, had one smooth pattern and literally hands of stone, but hey they lined up to get him into camps, just becuz, that's an example of how "Stars" are handed out. Sorry about ranting but I can smell corruption miles away and CFB recruiting is a week old dead carp in the caviar bowl at the garden party IMO.

    Apparently they went pro (get handsome salary) just to have enough knowledge to tell if that Rolex/Hublot is fake or not...

    Only a few months ago there was a sumo who got caught with a car full of weed. Now we have rookie CBs acting like they're gangstas. When someone with an 85 IQ is given millions of dollars because they run fast in a straight line these are the results you are going to get.

    Imagine having a contract worth millions of dollars and doing things like this to jeopardize your luxurious lifestyle. Its mind boggling.

    Speaking of the NFL as subsidy to blacks, there is a resolution being voted on at the next oligarch meeting of owners that improves a team's draft position if they hire a black coach or a seat filler in management. Myself I think it's funny if they want to crash the NFL down a few notches, be my guest.

    From that tweet: "The call to action grew even louder after only one of the five coaching vacancies during the offseason was filled by a person of color, continuing a trend in which just three of the past 20 openings have gone to a minority."

    The black proportion of the population is 12%, while 20% of the five most recent coaching vacancies went to blacks, and 15% of the past 20 openings. Surely the author of the tweet meant that teams that hire White coaches and GMs are to receive the improved draft positions.

    A caste rule being implemented out in the open. They're blatantly trying to replace whites from the league entirely.

    This is what happens when Caste whores like Fat Bastard, and Plantation Pete stay in the league for years on end.

    I have seen so many talking heads talk about the lack of minority coaches, meaning the lack of former NFL players being coaches. But the average fan doesn't realize a successful NFL player that plays 10+years in the NFL is behind a marginal university level player who gave up on their pro dreams 10+years before the NFL player did.

    Even White NFL players are behind a BB or an extreme outlier like McVay who when he was a coordinator and hired by the Rams as head coach McVay would have been about age of typical star to solid veteran's age when they retire.

    So if you understand this logic than you know this screaming for former players to get this job is nonsense. Even the Blacks who make it to the top are usually similar to BB or McVay ie Tomlin.

    In about 10 years, if the Great Racial Replacement fails to take hold at the quarterback position, it wouldn't surprise me if the (((owners))) came up with some new rule decreeing that touchdowns by black QBs will be worth eight points instead of six, or something like that. Because reparations.

    Even if I wasn't racially aware, I'd still look at this proposal as being ridiculous. Hopefully this sort of thing happening leads to more whites being woken up. I really wish the NFL didn't have that monster TV deal. Even if they play to half empty stadiums, there is no incentive on the NFL's part to change since that TV money keeps rolling in.

    Hard to say at this point whether the proposal is serious or just a publicity stunt. Even if only mid round draft position, it would be a major escalation to incentivize replacing Whites.

    If sports are the “ultimate meritocracy”, why would owners hire inferior coaches and GM’s?

    That is not beyond the possibility of actually happening.

    This is ridiculous, amongst many other things that are wrong with this openly racist proposal, I wouldn't like to think if I was a black coach or personnel man I got the job for no other reason than it benefits the team in draft position, surely you would want to have the position on merit.

    LOL ramping up the Rooney Rule. Pathetic, more dumbing down of society to accommodate more idiots.

    Hilarious people still think anything given in Modern Amerika is based on merit. This is the direction we've been headed in.. Suppose I shouldn't be surprised.
