    I am sure plenty of those quotabacks will put up good fantasy stats in garbage time as they try to make comebacks when defenses go into prevent mode. As @Bucky stated - the agenda is obvious.


    As for the Taysom Hill situation - I find it all quite baffling. If Payton is all in on Hill why is he bringing another quotaback in to compete with him rather than focus on Hill's development. I do think Tommy Stevens is intriguing and find it funny that the Eagles blew a 2nd round pick on a gadget quotaback when Stevens is a bigger, stronger and better athlete (probably would of put up similar stats at Oklahoma too).

    Good point. In most fantasy drafts I'm able to get who I want 90% of the time, because the DWFs all flock to the same players.

    Ironically I read an article about a week ago claiming Brian Flores as a Black HC. Interestingly enough, I find it funny the NFL considers him Black, but MLB doesn't consider Black Latin players to be, Black.(Don't worry it's about that time of year where the calls for more American Blacks to be in baseball.) Hypocrites.

    This article calls for more blacks to be in positions of power but conveniently doesn't touch on the fact that most of the "white" owners are Jews.

    I found this short rant on Lew Rockwell.com by the very respected conservative historian Thomas DiLorenzo, who believes the very widespread misconception that unlike the rest of society, sports somehow is still a bastion of purity, free of the racial politics that poisons everything else in America:

    "Do these billionaires not care about making money? Do they not care about winning games and superbowls? Are they all racists? Are there no retired black NFL players who are capable of coaching at a high level? Affirmative answers to these questions are the assumptions behind the NFL bureaucracy’s latest proposal to introduce affirmative action in the League by allowing teams to jump up ten spots in the next draft if they hire more black coaches.

    "Professional sports used to be the last refuge of merit in American society. As far as the players are concerned, it still is. But the organization is doing everything it can to destroy it by pandering to the cultural Marxists who control so many levers in society.

    "Marvin Lewis, who was the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals for sixteen years after being the defensive coach for the Baltimore Ravens when they won their first superbowl, called the proposal “offensive” and patronizing, which it certainly was. And stupid. It assumes that the owners, who employ more than 70% black players, are so racist and so unconcerned about winning and making money that they would not hire a black Bill Belichick, the famed New England Patriots coach, knowing that it may be the key to winning the next superbowl."

    So because the NFL is 70% black it must be a meritocracy? What about commercials these days, which also seem to be about 70 percent black; is that also a "meritocracy"? Or the wildly disproportionate number of blacks working as sports analysts and announcers. Is "meritocracy" the only explanation for that too? It's amazing how blind so many conservatives and even most racially aware Whites are to the racial politics of sports and of the fake news media which props up the Caste System.

    I'd try and get Josh Allen. He's way undervalued. More rushing TDs than Lamar last season. If he was the right skin colour for DWFs that would be foaming at the mouth over drafting him.

    Jones is a very good alternative

    Allen and Jones are both very good runners and very good passers. But both get lots of flak from the fake news media and DWFs because they weren't immediate superstars -- not to mention Jones was widely predicted to be a colossal bust -- while Kyler Murray is treated like a god after only a decent rookie season. Bucky Brooks is now predicting Murray will be the 2020 league MVP. In the same article he also writes that Lebron James could be a great NFL tight end. Must rankle him that Whites dominate at tight end. Why not write that he'd be a great defensive end or linebacker if he's going to engage in a masturbatory fantasy?

    This is a poignant quote from the "The Racial Caste System in Sports" article "Even those Whites who believe in genetic determinism and racial differences, and thus reject racial egalitarianism and affirmative action, often embrace black athletic superiority because it affirms their underlying worldview and gives them an opportunity to sincerely praise non-whites." Many white activists and some researchers in many cases (Lynn, Rushton are notorious) actively hedge things against whites in an effort to not appear "biased" in favor of whites and supposed black athletic superiority in the NFL is easy to point to, to show how "races are different" to the general public without being dismissed as racist, "I believe there are racial differences which is why there are so many black in the NFL" for example.

    I've said similar things before but this is a particularly egregious example, many racially aware whites believe in affirmative action/bias in every other area but when it comes to sports? Apparently not gotta let blacks have that, can't they comprehend the possibility of manipulating sports which is heavily associated with masculinity for social engineering? Why would the cultural Marxists spare the players? I believe many racially aware white views on sports may originate from work that tries to portray blacks as athletically superior as a counterweight such as when Entine and later Rushton claimed in the 1992 Olympics something along the lines of that blacks won every running event which is blatantly false.

    Looks like Chad Beebe has a chance to be the Vikings' third, fourth or fifth receiver after an injury-filled 2019. It's also cool that Adam Thielen is the clear-cut number one receiver now, that happens very rarely with overachievers:

    I can't wait to see what changes the outcomes from our offseason bring. That being said, I've noticed that one name keeps being left off whenever there is talk of our receivers. What is happening with Chad Beebe? There has been no update on his rehab or if there has been, I've completely missed it. Is he not expected to come back? Or if he is, in what capacity? Thank you!

    — Patti James in Savage, MN

    We'll group Isaac and Patti's emails since they both cover the WR group. This is a position group that I'm also interested in seeing how things shake out. The Vikings currently have 12 wide receivers on the roster, and the odds are they only keep four or five of them on the 53-man roster.

    To start, Adam Thielen is now the clear-cut No. 1 receiver after the trade of Stefon Diggs, and he is viewed as the leader in that room. I expect the likes of Bisi Johnson, Tajaé Sharpe and first-rounder Justin Jefferson to battle it out for the No. 2 spot.

    Beebe is in that mix, too, although the staff will likely look to get him in winnable matchups in the slot and elsewhere.

    As for Beebe, he was actually mentioned a week or so ago by Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer when he was asked about the offense. Zimmer said he expects the WR group to look different now that Beebe is healthy … remember that he missed almost all of the 2019 season with an ankle injury. He's been rehabbing and involved in virtual meetings, so he presumably should be ready to roll. He'll be expected to provide depth and compete for playing time as a key member of that room.

    But there are a host of young guys who are hungry to prove themselves and make a push for a roster spot. Davion Davis, Alexander Hollins and Dillon Mitchell have a year under their belt in Kubiak's system. Bralon Addison, Dan Chisena, Quartney Davis and K.J Osborn are all in their first year with the team.

    We'll see how the competition shakes out once players can return to the facility and get on the field. Special teams are likely to be a key factor in determining who wins the final roster spots.

    PFT seems to be going all in on the annual not enough black coaches in the league - now also complaining their are no minority owners. No comment on the lack of white players in the league or the reason as to why the league is 70% black though.

    This is extremely frustrating but sadly not surprising. DiLorenzo is someone whom I’ve read extensively over the years. A few of his books and many of his articles. The guy is brilliant on most topics. It just goes to show you how successful the cultural marxists were with dupping the masses via the Caste System. It could be argued their finest achievement considering how it’s the most widely accepted with little pushback.

    Today's fun fact:

    Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz's 525 receptions are the most by a tight end in NFL history through their first seven seasons.

    Bust DE Noah Spence tore his ACL - he signed with the Saints as a FA this offseason. He was a 2nd round pick back in 2016 and has been very unproductive to this point in his career. Hopefully we see Chickillo and Hendrickson on the field together alot this season.

    Much to the chagrin of the fake news media, Gardner Minshew is still the starting quarterback for Jacksonville.

    Jaguars OC Jay Gruden said QB Gardner Minshew has "got the intangibles you want in a quarterback."
    Gruden added that Minshew, "Has shown a skillset where he can sit in a pocket, step up, make things happen outside the pocket. He’s accurate, he’s tough and obviously he’s a great leader." Minshew impressed as a rookie considering the circumstances of being thrust into the starting lineup halfway through the first quarter in Week 1 after Nick Foles suffered a broken clavicle. The 2019 sixth-round pick led the Jaguars to a 6-6 record in 12 starts, functioning as an above-average QB in adjusted yards per attempt (No. 13 among qualified QBs), QB rating under pressure (No. 10) and QB rating throwing deep (No. 1). The rushing floor might just be high enough here for Minshew to function as a solid late-round fantasy investment. Overall, only Lamar Jackson (1,206 rush yards), Kyler Murray (544), Josh Allen (510) and Deshaun Watson (413) had more yards on the ground than Minshew (344) last season.

    Yeah I don’t know why people act like the Jaguars still need a quarterback when he had a better season than Kyler Murray last year. He had less yards than Murray, but he started less games also. He had more TD’s than Murray and half as many interceptions. What more did they want a 6th round QB to do?

    Looks like Carson Wentz has caught the "Chris Long disease." Yes, America is rayisst. Really some of these star White athletes must be scared of their own shadows. WTF!

    Apparently it couldn't be that Wentz genuinely feels that way, it can only be that he's "scared of his own shadow." I noticed his teammate Zach Ertz expressed similar sentiments as have other White athletes and tons of White public figures in general. But of course a White quarterback is singled out. Fair warning that this site's bizarre anti-White QB cult is not going to be resurrected over what happened in Minneapolis.

    I heard his name mentioned on a radio program I was listening to. I am just putting it out there. Wentz's name was mentioned along with LeBron James. These star athletes waste no time to jump on twitter to say America is rayisst. Yet not one condemns the criminal rioters, looters, and arsonists. I am pretty confident that Wentz does not feel America is rayisst. He is intelligent ,how could he? He is going along to get long.

    I recall Wentz wanted to visit Trump's White House after the Eagles won the Super Bowl, until the whole thing was derailed by the Eagles' (((owner))). He also gave shotguns to his O-linemen as gifts and went hunting in North Dakota during the team's bye week. He's no SJW and as a hunter I'm sure he knows what it's like to be hassled by those SJWs with comments like "wahh wahh, how can you kill Bambi" (often by hypocrites who will go on to eat a meal that includes meat and lick the grease from a dead chicken or cow off their fingers). So I'll just put things in perspective and say that on the issue of the riots he and I have differing opinions and leave it at that.

    Wentz is just virtue signaling now that he's in Filthadelphia. Whatever has to protect his ass and say whatever to appease the masses, I won't hold it against him.

    Dylan Cantrell has been signed by the Cardinals and will be moving to tight end. Cantrell is one of the most athletic receivers in NFL history and he’s a great blocker so this could be a good move for him. His RAS at WR was 9.85, highlighted by his 41 inch vertical and 6.56(!!!) 3 cone drill. He is listed at 6’3” 240lbs right now, he also has yet to play in an NFL game after dealing with injuries the past 2 seasons. He’s reunited with his college coach Kliff Kingsbury.
