    Spot on. I watched the entire Tampa game and CM literally had no room to run. If it was a back like Barkley his stat line would have read 20 carries for negative 5 yards. Also without lynchpin white star Luke Kuechly on D ( btw he was on the ESPN2 telecast last night and said CM is the prototype of the new RB) to balance out any black locker room overload I wonder if the new caste oriented new coach has created an atmosphere where the players aren't all in with doing their best for CM?

    Time will tell. I think though we should be grateful he didn't suffer an ACL tear. He should fully recover from this ankle sprain.

    When Drue Tranquill's season ended in Week One, Nick Vigil took his spot for the rest of the game. However on Sunday, instead of being a three down linebacker Vigil played exactly three snaps, all of them on special teams.

    Lynn also believes that Idler arm gives the Chargers the best chance to win.

    It amazes me he is already cosigned to the workout circuit, Geno Smith is a "solid" backup in Seattle???

    Bortles has one foot out the door unless he shines in Denver this year....

    I believe Oklahoma rookie Kenneth Murray took his place.

    I don't completely trust this but word is Ron Rivera still has Troy Apke's back. We will find out soon enough if that is true?

    Rest assured the pure crap play by the Saints DBs last night barely earned more than "it was a tough night" type of commentary from their media outlets. Put this to the bank. With the possible exception of white quarterbacks, white defensive backs are the number one enemy to sports media outlets. They are subject to the worst sort of hit jobs imaginable. And most of the criticisms aren't grounded in reality. Just make up crap in their attempt to cripple and remove all white players from defensive backfields. And as you can tell they have been pretty damn successful in their destruction.

    I feel this site was a prime mover in curbing overripe caste announcing. I wish there was a way to penetrate and expose these creeps who keep unfairly attacking white DBs.

    Apke just needs some more seasoning and experience, some bumps are to be expected. He has all the necessary tools and traits to succeed he just hasn’t played that much. From being a wide receiver and only starting at safety for one season in college fans can’t expect him to be an immediate pro bowler. There are definitely a lot worse safeties all around the league (smaller than him, slower than him, not as aggressive as him).

    Murray was already starting Week One. He played 91% of snaps Week One and 83% Sunday. Kyzir White went from playing 10% of snaps Week One to 100% Week Two while Vigil fell from 85% to 0, so White was promoted over Vigil.

    The Chargers also released Joe Gaziano from the practice squad. If anyone saw Gaziano play in college and believed he would be getting jerked around like this a year later they would think you were lying. He was a very good big ten DE. A true example of the caste system in action. I guess cutting him gives the Chargers the "best chance to win" just like starting Taylor over Herbert and Kyzir White over Nick Vigil.

    The Jets laughably cut LB Paul Worrilow from their practice squad. In reality he should of been starting for them last Sunday when they got absolutely embarrassed by the 49ers.

    Has anybody got an update on Muse's injury? Will he play this year and what position are the Raiders planning on playing him at? I saw him with the number 55 on but that was a practice photo. I was just assuming they were converting him to linebacker.

    Gale Sayers the Chicago Bears running back died today at age 77. No cause was given.

    Tyrod Taylor clearly the victim of systemic racism. Get ready for the peaceful protests to begin in LA because black lives matter:

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chargers' team doctor accidentally punctured Tyrod Taylor’s lung while trying to administer a pain-killing injection during pregame warmups in Week 2.
    It means Taylor is dealing with a collapsed lung. That's a serious injury, and Taylor has been advised not to play "indefinitely." Taylor is expected to fully recover, but that's unlikely to happen this week. Justin Herbert is in line to make another start against the Panthers.

    Feel bad for the guy as he seems a decent guy, but frankly based on talent he is a backup anyway. Herbert has a similar floor and much higher ceiling. Time to go with the rookie moving forward.

    I remember Gale Sayers' rookie year of 1965. He became a big name that year with the 6-TD game along with many spectacular runs over the course of the season.

    Also, spoke proper English. 9 out of 10 affelets lack this. Look at rotten parents and the city school systems.

    I've seen conflicting reports one states that Muse hasn't looked good in practice and they are just stashing him on IR, the other report says Muse has a lingering foot injury and the raiders want him back as soon as possible

    The Milwaukee Journal website mention of his passing says he was diagnosed with dementia in 2013. I remember the Bears retiring his and Butkus' numbers on Halloween 1994 during a driving rainstorm at about 38 degrees at Soldier Field and the Packers obliterated the Bears by 30 something points, I even had a bit of sympathy for the chaps and I remember their last sad years as players gimping about. Then karma, Bart Starr was honored at Lambeu and he was barely ambulatory so they drive him out to midfield in a cart to stand in rainy cold weather then he goes home and passes some time later, and the Bears won I believe.

    Wile, I remember Pittsburgh center Ray Mansfield saying after Butkus hurt his knees he would try to cut his knees every chance he got. That's the way football used to be played. He claimed that Butkus was a dirty player and deserve it.

    I linked to an opinion piece not so much as I agree with his conclusions but why I just can't watch the NFL or NCAA crap product. And a word of warning to those who think it is just a piece of cloth, sadists are never, ever satisfied, you will always be jumping their hoops. When virus mania fizzles out for lack of interest on the untermenschen's part it will be something else.

    Thanks, Wile for the post and linked article. All posters should read it and realize what is coming down the road in the NFL. I don't think any of it will be to our liking.

    Well-written article and astute - the NFL has become a players’ league. They now hold all the power and, being the millennial babies they are, are throwing tantrums to get their way. The NFL has been emasculated and it is going downhill. Ratings continue their downward trend (as with nearly all sports) as the average Joe like you and I come to the realization that millionaires have no call to complain about that popular but curiously undefined “systemic racism” - when they make more money that 99% of the population.

    I love the game of football. Always have. Played it for many years. The game itself is pure. The people in charge are toxic.

    But it is just a game - my family’s protection and future are infinitely more important. My escape now is hunting, fishing and shooting - much more enjoyable than watching millionaire toddlers.

    I'll watch highlight videos, but I'm not watching a 3 hour idiot fest of propaganda about the virus or race theory or some idiot blathering on about a subject he knows less than I do about quantum physics. Of course I'm a bit of a hypocrite I watch Nascar and they play the idiot virus game with their stupid masks but at least the announcers stick to talking about cars going around in circles. I'm in a somewhat free state at least the kids can play football, my neighbor's grandson took a pick six 70 yards for a TD, so I'm happy for the kids. Myself I'm putting my time on the bike trails, just wearing out the tires, of course so is everyone else with this great weather.

    I do appreciate those here for the patience with the scum who run the NFL and the media, like listening to Satan lecture you on goodness IMO.

    The Left can create reality amongst its puppet population once they vanquish enough of the NFL's support on the Right they could in very little time take it down to a few steps above cotton picking for the love of the plantation. They spend trillions in cash you know.

    Not a fan of the guy because Taylor made a big whine about "racist whitey" a couple years back, but no player should go out because they were injured by their own team doctor. (Apparently he was trying to inject a painkiller for a previous rib injury and he pushed the needle in too deep - a dicey operation because the nerves between the ribs are so close to the lung, but something that any competent, properly trained doctor should be able to handle). Also would have been better for Herbert so that no one would be saying he only got the start because of the injury.

    Remembering the Montez Sweat fiasco (where he was apparently misdiagnosed with a heart condition by the NFL's doctors), there appears to be a lack of competence among the league's medical personnel. It wouldn't surprise me if some of the owners were hiring their doctor buddies from the country club for those positions.

    Something like that lung puncture happens at a hospital and the bean counters sigh and get out the checkbook because they know they're paying a big fat settlement.

    It's amazing, the level of hysteria that leftists whip up over pieces of cloth. Positive hysteria for masks and Islamic headscarves, negative hysteria for the Confederate flag.
