    More info, I don't think the folks there get the ramifications that I see except one poster who mentioned "race baiting", but of course the acceptable discourse centers around universalist ideology Woke Communism/Civic Nationalism all the we all bleed red but political extremists who don't buy into it should just bleed to death.

    Back to sports, my guess is that it basically turns into black racial supremacy radio or whatever form they take, it will get Air America level of support but then they will blanch at what they end up with since all white and jewish "liberals" are scared witless of actually meeting blacks in a dark alley.

    the MSM is already building in an excuse for the quotaback Lamar Jackson in case the Ravens lose to Buffalo. It will cold and a 40% chance of snow so if Buffalo beats Baltimore then the narrative will be "Lamar played poorly because he was not used to the cold" it could never be that Josh Allen is a better QB. They make it so obvious and its laughable at this point

    More or less, Belichek is in between a rock and a hard place. The lousing up of the team came from the top. I'm very sure the other owners told the owner of the Patriots he wasn't going to be allowed to keep bringing in White players to keep winning championships. So Belichek is just following orders. Tom Brady on the other hand saw what was going on and got out. I'm very sure in the negotiations with the Bucs, he made clear they weren't going to louse him up. The Bucs agreed and so he signed with them. I would hope Brady retires after this year though. It's enough they made the playoffs. He should leave before the inevitable implosion of the league.

    Yeah if he would have retired after last season his record would be tainted by being a free rider on Brady which has some validity, so maybe his best option is to flail about for a year or two then have Kraft replace him with a fill in the blank nobody. Most coaches go out in a blaze of mediocrity any way.

    Modern, "woke" civic nationalism has devolved to just literal Orwellianism at this point - "we all bleed red, but blacks are superior" is just their way of saying "all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

    Sounds like Urban Meyer will be coaching the Jaguars. Let's hope he doesn't screw over Trevor Lawrence with his college offense.

    Meyer is a serial quitter too. He left Florida and Ohio St for "health reasons" after scandals began taking over each program. I have no respect for the guy.

    I heard some criticism, can't recall from who right now which is frustrating. But anyways they said that Meyer got stressed out with pretty much a cupcake schedule of guaranteed wins(1 or 2 tough games), with a loaded team and was still feeling the pressure. How will he respond to NFL? Should be interesting, maybe we should ask Saban?

    Alot of this is probably for marketability and trying to draw Jags fans back. If I were Khan I would be more than happy that Trevor Lawrence was going to fall into my lap - the Jags have as close to a sure thing in Lawrence since Andrew Luck. They just doubled up on star power with hiring Meyer. Rumor has it that Meyer wants mediocre Scott Linehan as the offensive coordinator. Let's all just hope Trevor Lawrence is able to thrive despite mediocrity and NFL egos that will probably be following Meyer to Jacksonville.

    Meyer stated years ago his job was to win games and championships for Florida not to have a pro style offense and develop pro quarterbacks.

    Obviously he won't have a Lamar Jackson style system in place in Jacksonville for Lawrence but his knowledge of the pro game probably isn't up to speed. Too many college coaches have flamed out in the pros because of their square peg round hole attitude.

    I just hope he doesn't take Lawrence down with him...

    Linehan from the ol caste heap, lol.

    Solid points @Leonardfan. Makes sense, at least Jags fans have something to he excited about!

    I’m not so down on Urban Meyer. He’s a great coach and a proven winner. I’d take him over an Eric Bienemy quota hire.

    I don't want to beat a dead horse but the NFL game is a lot more aligned with the college game offensively than it was back when Meyer was at UF. The NFL adapted so many rule changes to favor offenses and Meyer is essentially the godfather of the spread offense/zone read which runs rampant in the NFL today. Meyer was smart he would be looking at Bills and Chargers offensive schemes as Lawrence is the same type of QB as Allen and Herbert. His ego may not allow that and I totally agree that he may have a square peg/round hole mentality. Andrew Luck got beat up due to a poor offensive line - Lawrence could risk the same type of physical damage if Meyer makes him run with the ball too much. I believe the Chargers OC Shane Steichen is available after Lynn's firing - after what he did with Herbert this year he is who I would want as the OC for Trevor Lawrence.

    Some other mediocre names are being tied to Meyer - Scott Pioli - his tenure with the Pats yieleded Brady as a draft pick and Wes Welker as a free agent. After that his track record is pretty bad caste wise. Ray Farmer - terrible GM for the Browns over two years - I can't totally crap on him though because I was happy when they drafted Manziel. Manziel is one of many poor draft picks Farmer made during his tenure in Cleveland. Trent Baalke is currently in Jacksonville and has a garbage history of drafting too - he drafted the Toucan. None of these picks are inspiring to be able to bring in good players to surround Lawrence with.

    Given the failure of the Rodent and Pederson's destruction of Wentz this season I think that Fat Bastard's pets probably are not looked on very highly. I am curious to see where Bienemy ends up and how or if his checkered past comes back to bite him by the blue check marks on twatter.

    Jets hiring Robert Saleh and he is bringing Mike LaFleur in as the OC. If LaFleur keeps the same offense they had in San Fran I think this may bode well for Darnold. Actually not the worst hire for the Jets.

    Vonn Miller under investigation by Denver PD. No indication of exactly what could be cause, but police stated charges could be pending.

    I’m guessing we aren’t talking about something small here...

    We all know this is race related. Watson is doing his best to force a black head coach on the organization. He is complaining that a black GM was not hired. Get more white players in the league and this issues will subside along with having a better product on the field.

    Breaking his Twitter silence Friday, Deshaun Watson tweeted, "I was on 2 then I took it to 10."

    It was Watson's first tweet of the new year, and one would have to assume it's referring to his frustration level in Houston. Watson was reportedly extremely irked at the Texans' process that led the team to hire Patriots exec Nick Caserio as its new GM. Watson was kept out of the loop in that hiring, and the Texans have been trying to perform damage control ever since, with CEO Cal McNair stating he wants Watson's input on the new head coach. It may be too little, too late in Watson's eyes. He's also said to be frustrated with the team's insensitivity to social justice. Former owner Bob McNair, who has since passed, was in hot water with racist comments a few years back. Watson could look to force his way out of town this offseason, but we would think there's long way to go until we get to that point.

    Good riddance, Houston needs a culture change. Their on field product is terrible as well.

    Remember their great days a few years ago with a young JJ Watt, Brian Cushing, Brooks Reese, Conor Barton, Jared Crick and Shaun Cody on that great defenses? White men playing hard-nosed, excellent defense.

    Heck, even on offense they had Kevin Walter (underrated and could have been even better if given more looks).

    I think they're going Justin Fields so it probably won't matter.
