    Good to see that even though it's only the start of pre-season, Weenieworld is in midseason form:

    Aug 5: Cole was listed on Minnesota's initial depth chart as the starter at middle linebacker, ESPN reports. It's possible Cole could begin the season as the starter with 2015 second-round draft pick Eric Kendricks replacing him in passing situations. Gerald Hodges may also get a look at middle linebacker. However, it seems like just a matter of time before Kendricks takes over the majority of snaps at middle linebacker.

    Cole is listed by some depth charts as the starter but the Vikings drafted Erik Kendricks in the 2nd round and he's the favorite to start at some point this season inside next to Chad Greenway, who was moved inside.

    Thielen is the fourth receiver at best, behind Charles Johnson, Mike Wallace, Cordarelle Patterson, and maybe also Jarius Wright and rookie Stefon Diggs.

    The Vikings defense is rapidly blackening after spending a few seasons up there with Houston's as the least black in the league. Greenway and Robison are the only two White starters left on defense and they are both closing in on the end of their time as starters. It won't be surprising if Mike Zimmer, who oversaw coal black defenses in Dallas and Cincinnati, makes Minnesota just another typical NFL team demographic-wise by this time next year, with just the injury-prone Rudolph and maybe two or three o-linemen as the only White starters, along with Greenway if he bounces back this year. Robison's days as a starter may end at some point in '15.

    Jesse James had a poor game, but was drafted to eventually replace Heath Miller so hopefully the Rooney Plantation won't be too hard on him after just one game, but who knows with the Crawfords.

    Don't forget about Harrison Smith, one of the NFL's rising stars at DB, who'll be starting at FS. The Viking defense should have 4 white starters (Robison, Cole, Smith, and Greenway) and 2-3 reserves (Sendejo, Mauti, Peters). Not sure if Peters will make team team, though.

    I agree about Adam Thielen's role at WR. He should make the squad, but will probably get alot less offensive snaps this season.

    I don't know how I forgot about Smith. Hope I'm wrong about Cole, but I'll be very pleasantly surprised if he's the starter all season or even at any point this season. Regardless, the darkening trend of Minnesota is clear, reinforced by their recent drafts; by '16 there's a good chance Smith is the only White starter on defense.

    At this time last season the Vikings were projected to have 11 White starters. At this time next year the number will likely be 5 or 6 -- Rudolph, two or three White linemen, Smith on defense, along possibly with Greenway or Robison. Best case scenario (and admittedly this is projecting a long way ahead): 7, worst case 4, or even 3 if Rudolph can't stay healthy; the black TE they drafted this year scored a TD last night.

    Lions RBs coach Curtis Modkins said UDFA Zach Zenner is a "really, really good football player."

    Modkins believes Zenner has a future in the NFL. "Really good vision. He has rare vision. ... You can’t come out here on air and run for 2,000 yards for three years in a row and not be good," Modkins said. Zenner is battling George Winn for the No. 4 running back spot behind Joique Bell, Ameer Abdullah and passing back Theo Riddick.

    The only defense for Smith is either he is chemically imbalanced or has lost his impulse control because of violent concussions. Either way this makes the San Francisco coaching staff and management team look like enablers. After his second problem he should have gotten a full psych scan before he ever hit the field.

    The coaching staff's plea for the general public to get help if they were behaving like Smith is a joke. Anybody else doing this behavior would be in a rubber room or doing time in the county jail....:frusty:

    Geno Smith is out "6 to 10 weeks" with a broken jaw suffered in a locker room "altercation" with a fellow Afro-American. The offending Afro-American, some scrub linebacker who got a training camp spot over a Wisconsin linebacker, was instantly released by the Jets. This is being framed as a "sucker-punch" by an untrustworthy media.

    I am not really sure if this is real or just an 'Onion' parody.

    I have nothing but terrible things to say for the Jets franchise and Geno Smith in particular, who is surely a symptom of the disease rather than the cause. Geno Smith missed a team meeting last year in San Diego, completely no-showed. His excuse was that he was in a movie theater and had shut off his cell phone (which was why he didn't respond to many urgent calls), compounded with the time zone change, which was why he was, apparently, tardy to a meeting that would have been three hours later back home. The NYC sports media, including one former Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason, was completely dumbstruck. Esiason simply stated, "There is no reason for being late to a team meeting as a team leader." After being informed that Smith missed the meeting completely, Esiason had nothing to say. He couldn't even comprehend the information that was being passed on to him.

    Will the Jets finally move on from this colossal bust, whose incompetence directly caused the firings of head coach Rex Ryan and general manager Gene Idzik? Or will Smith reemerge from the shadows as a chosen savior of football, overcoming obstacles and working through a trying fifth and sixth season as starting quarterback in a major media market?

    Geno Smith was supposed to be a #1 overall pick a year before his draft. Correct me if I'm wrong here, since I try to forget as much about the NY Jets as possible. He was a supposed stud and Heisman frontrunner as a senior at WVU until he led the team to a crap record while throwing way too many interceptions and incompletions. The NFL gave him a draft grade of rounds 1-5, with the sole 'round one' vote surely belonging to some cuckold fetishist living in a gated community. Smith was a "steal" in round two for New York, and hey, take a gamble, sure. The problem was that this was no gamble; it was a mortgage against their future. The team puffed him up as their sureshot starter, paid lazy, humbled, and uninterested Michael Vick 4.5 million dollars to "backup coach" him, and even since this grave mistake, has never had the prescience to look back and say oops.

    Look at Tampa Bay. Black head coach Lovie Smith inherits an unpolished, serviceable product in Mike Glennon. He immediately signs his old backup qb, Josh McCown, and anoints him the starter instantly. No camp competition and no face-offs. But McCown is just a bridge toward the future, apparently. The Buccaneers sucked as usual, and now they finally get a pudgy black superman to lead jersey sales. Many white men surely renewed their fishing licenses.

    Imagine if after one crappy year at the helm, Geno Smith was instantly demoted by new signing Ryan Fitzpatrick. B-b-but that upside!, says the cuckold.

    Lol @ the Jets and Smiff. A great example of reaping what you sow. Smiff is a low iq borderline retard and that black lb who sucker punched him was exhibiting TnB. This is great news for Petty who will now get more reps and hopefully become the starting qb sooner rather than later.

    Smiff was a whiny, entitled bitch in college to - I stil remember him moping and acting like the black *** he is after Kansas st shut him down. bspn hyped him up so much during the 2012 season as a 1st rounder and the anointed heisman winner. The fact of the matter is that he is a run of the mill black system qb. My dislike of Smiff is well documented on this forum.

    Lets hope Petty capitalizes on this opportunity. After all Petty was more prolific than Smiff or the gremlin - is bigger, more athletic and stronger than Smiff, more accurate and poised than the gremlin yet dropped all the way to the 4th round. He has the strongest arm in the draft. Petty was scrutinized and labeled as a system qb while Smiff and the gremlin played in the same systems yet were praised upon.

    Here is the guy who did Petty a favor by breaking Smiff's jaw. I guess he was signed by the Jets because of all of that "upside", despite being a low-impulse-control negro like many littering the league:

    [h=1]Jets knew IK Enemkpali was a character risk when they drafted him[/h] Posted by Michael David Smith on August 11, 2015, 2:08 PM EDT
    [​IMG] Getty ImagesIK Enemkpali, the linebacker who was cut by the Jets today for breaking the jaw of quarterback Geno Smith with a locker room sucker punch, has a history of violence that the Jets were aware of when they drafted him.
    In college at Louisiana Tech, Enemkpali was arrested for battery on a police officer. Enemkpali was eventually sentenced to probation for simple battery. At the time that the Jets drafted him, Enemkpali said he had learned from the experience.
    “I was just being a young. [It was] a young, hot-headed decision,†Enemkpali said last year. “I didn’t think about everything. If I knew what I know now, I would’ve gotten myself out of that situation. I lost my cool. That’s what it was. I didn’t know he was undercover, which is no excuse, but . . . Yeah, I lost my cool.â€
    If the Jets knew what they know now, they wouldn’t have drafted Enemkpali. Teams take chances on players with character red flags all the time, and sometimes those risks come back to bite the team. That’s certainly the case with the Jets, who are now without their starting quarterback for the beginning of the regular season.
    Jets coach Todd Bowles indicated that cutting Enemkpali was an easy decision.
    “IK is gone,†Bowles said. “It’s something we don’t tolerate, something we can’t stand. You don’t walk up to another man and punch him in the face.â€
    Bowles declined to explain what led to the punch, but he said he was disappointed in his players that they weren’t mature enough to talk through their differences.
    “It’s something very childish that sixth graders could have talked about,†Bowles said.
    But the Jets’ locker room lacked the maturity of a sixth-grade class. As a result, Enemkpali is gone, and Smith is having his jaw surgically repaired.

    The release of the LB who punched Geno should also give Trevor Reilly a better chance of making the final roster

    In other good news, over in Buffalo, Manuel has been dropped to 3rd on the depth chart. Maybe Rex is starting to smarten up about the qb position.

    What a heart warming story.

    :lock1: Yes, this will be good for Petty.

    The NFL has become an absolute thug/negro culture and become a parody of itself. Goodell welcomes these morons into the league year in and year out and expects a different result. Im having fun watching the slow implosion.

    Has this ever happened in the NFL before? The starting QB gets taken out for several games from a locker room assault by a teammate? I can't think of a similar incident.

    I wonder if the odds for New York winning their opener have shifted a bit in their favor.

    In 1997, former Colts QB and manic depressive wigger, Jim Harbaugh, punched former Bills QB, Jim Kelly (who was working as an NBC broadcaster at the time) at a hotel in San Diego. Harbaugh, then the Colts’ starter, broke his hand in the incident and missed the first few weeks of the season due to his own idiocy/juvenility. Harbaugh describing the incident…

    Many in the corporate media are suggesting that Geno Smith was punched by this impulse-driven black thug because Smith doesn’t have control of his team and that teammates don’t respect him due to his lack of maturity and leadership. On ESPN’s “NFL Live,†one analyst stated something like: “One could never fathom something like this happening to Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, or Aaron Rodgers.â€

    I know a white guy that committed “battery†against a police officer when he was a similar age (early 20’s) as Mr. Enemkpali. He shoved the officer away as he was attempting to arrest him for public intoxication. After a very brief scuffle, he allowed the officer to arrest him. No big deal, right? The incident led to massive fines, hundreds of hours of community service, and he was fired from his job as a security guard. This clown, Enemkpali, was lucky enough to get drafted (thanks to the Caste System) and squandered the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] chance he was given only days into his first training camp. TNB incarnate.

    Reports about the incident indicate the dispute was over money Smiff owed him.

    Could an evil racist bigot sh*tlord write a worse story as fiction?

    Geno Smiff, chief of the Womp-Womp tribe commonly referred to as the New York Jets, was assaulted by a young buck while sitting around the campfire. The young buck, IFU Eatdapoopoo, was mad because Chief Womp-Womp was withholding some of his beads. Smiff, who has many beads himself, was playing Big Man Politics, often observed in the wild within African social hierarchies. Unfortunately for Smiff, the tribe does not agree with his position as Big Man. They howled and danced around the campfire, filming themselves on their smartphone cameras, and then some rhesus monkeys began fornicating.

    That is almost exactly what happened.

    Not exactly the same type incident, but Clint Longley sucker punched Roger Staubach during Cowboy training camp in 1976. Longley was Staubach's backup QB and the two argued over a play and Staubach gave Longley a beating.

    The next day Longley sucker punched Staubach in the locker room, injuring him slightly. Longley took off, his bags were packed.

    Google "Clint Longley, Roger Staubach." It's being discussed again.

    Heard about this story yesterday pretty interesting. It worked out well because Cowboys traded Longley for 2nd overall pick and they selected Tony Dorsett.

    As more and more details come out of this geno Smiff incident it becomes funnier and funnier. Apparently he owed the black lb 600 dollars, decided he wasn't going to pay him and than told him he wouldn't do anything about it so the guy broke his jaw. His lack of any sort of character, leadership and intelligence are all on display here - let's hope this is his ticket out of the league and gives us one less starting quoataback.

    Because we know pigboy Rex Ryan would pick up a White scrub LB one day after he sucker punched a black (or White) QB and broke his jaw. What a despicable, thug-dominated league with its White enablers and "plantation bosses":


    Bills claimed LB IK Enemkpali off waivers from the Jets. Enemkpali is getting a second chance from former coach Rex Ryan one day after his locker-room brawl with Geno Smith. He's unlikely to face any criminal charges for the incident, but could face penalties under the NFL's personal conduct policy. The Bills have shown a willingness to take a chance on players with off-field baggage this offseason, signing Richie Incognito and Percy Harvin. Enemkpali will compete for a depth role at outside linebacker.
