    The Browns just traded Trent Richardson to the Colts. My guess is they use the additional pick in order to trade up to take quotaback Teddy Bridgewater. When will these caste-ian GM's ever learn? Note: no one knows if this is entirely the case, but the talking heads on the NFL Network are sure trying to spin it this way. I feel bad that Brandon Weeden is being thrown under the bus.

    "Dat Teddy Bridgewater finna be da ansah at quotaback for da Browns yo!"

    They could have gotten Gerhart for a 3rd or 4th round pick. 1st round pick for Richardson is just dumb.

    Alex Smith is a pretty good story so far this season for the Chiefs. He's off to a 2-0 start, and the "unathletic, dink-and-dunk game manager" is 29th in the league with 82 rushing yards. Smith might be taking off running out of necessity, as his 4/5 black offensive line has given up five sacks already. He and Andrew Luck seem to be the two premier white scrambling quarterbacks this season, and it will be interesting to see how their rushing contributions stack up versus the vaunted black signal-callers. The Chiefs visit Philly on Thursday night.

    The same "un-athletic" Alex Smith who ran the Option at Utah under Meyer. Somehow he wasn't capable of running the same type of offense as the Quotabacks in the league.

    The DWF reaction to Richardson being traded is hilarious. They're shocked and flabbergasted. Richardson is a superstar in their eyes. Nevermind the fact that the he averages 3.5 yards a carry. All hail the mighty ESPN hype machine. There's nothing they can't make the DWF believe.

    It's shocking in the sense that football trades of name players are fairly rare and almost never occur during the season. I can't think of another example of a front line running back being dealt in season. Maybe some of the old timers remember a big name being dealt during the season but it seems rare.

    Richardson was considered a high value fantasy football pick because it seemed he would be the unquestioned ball carrier for the Browns who didn't have many other offensive options. From a fantasy standpoint this might even be an upgrade for him. Perhaps the success that Hillis had running for crappy Browns teams led people to believe that anyone could succeed doing it? Still it seems unusual for a team to deal a young back with some upside. Especially after just two games. There may be more to the story then has been shared with the public.

    Trent Richardson trade is part of the conspiracy to get rid of White QBs.

    7 out of the 10 highest QB prospects for 2014 NFL Draft are not White. 6 blacks and 1 Polynesian (Mariota). When the time comes to replace the Polynesian with a black QB, he'll get the Mark Sanchez treatment and magically turn into a White man.

    These quotabacks have to take someones job. It won't be Terral Pryor, Josh Freeman, Geno Smiff, Cam Newton. (They re all projected to have bad records which means high draft picks)

    It will be the young White QBs like Weeden, Gabbert and Ponder. The Jews need to convince the DWF's the change is necessary. The way to do that is to make sure White QBs do not succeed by trading away their best players. Getting them affirmative action black coaches.

    And to make sure they dont draft a White QB, the Jews attack the most well known and successful ones like Manziel, Murray and McCarron.

    For all other White QBs, they avoid giving them any media publicity. If the DWFs dont know they exist, it will be easier to screw them over.

    Most DWF's arent buying the lies about Manziel because it doesnt pass the eye test. Manziel is just too good.

    Manziel, McCarron and Murray are the only Whites on this list

    Alright dude just because one dumbass has this as his top Qb list does not mean you have to take it serious. I would like to know the success rate McGay and Kiper have predicting players. Maybe, maybe 40%! Take a look a draftdaddys top 10 Qbs its a completely different story..

    7\10 top QBs they have ranked are white and soon Logan Thomas will be playing himself out of the top ten. Garoppolo should benefit from this as should other gun slingers accross the country. Jordan Lynch has been completely forgotten as has Blake Bortles and Jeff Driskel!

    These 2 clowns are the same guys that claimed Aaron Curry was an immediate impact player and that Robiskie was most rounded wideout. What a joke! I laugh at them(besides the fact they make great money pushing their agenda onto America)

    Your list is invalid because its missing Bridgewater and Hundley.

    Majority of the mock drafts are in line with Mcshay. CBS's mock draft has 4 quotabacks and 0 Whites taking in the 1st round.

    As much as I like Draftdaddy, I have to agree that Smell Diaper and Todd McGay's mocks are probably more accurate to how the draft is actually going to go down. Remember, mock drafts aren't necessarily about who should get picked but rather a prediction of who is going to land where. These next two drafts look absolutely abysmal, chock full of quotabacks and very few white blue chippers at the position. The powers that be think that by forcing blacks into positions of leadership (ie Obama, most quotabacks) that the overall perception of them will change. This is all by design folks, but as we here know, blacks always end up becoming epic failures when put in charge of something. There is a reason why not one nation ruled by a black has been successful. The QB position is a microcosm of the overall problem in general.

    You can consider that list invalid just as I consider mcwiggers list invalid.

    The bottom line the best QBs that run this league are still white guys:thumbsup:.

    Aaron Rodgers' Green Bay Packers tenure demands appreciation

    Forget the young guns. Forget all the talk about the read option. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are still at the top of their games, but even they fall short.

    You know what I'm talking about, right?

    We are living in the Aaron Rodgers Era of Greatness. No quarterback has been better in the NFL since he became the Green Bay Packers' starter in 2008, and it's time to recognize.

    [​IMG]Aaron Rodgers

    The guy had an all-time great performance against the Washington Redskins last Sunday, and a nation sort of shrugged its collective shoulders. I centered my Monday column on Washington's defense getting torched by Rodgers, but few others wrote about it. The highlight shows didn't lead with it. It didn't dominate the NFL chatter.

    Do we simply expect this kind of greatness, week in and week out?

    The reality is, it's Aaron Rodgers' world, and we're just living in it. We need to appreciate and applaud -- we need to stop and smell the roses. We need to call that Sunday showing -- in which Rodgers became the first signal-caller since Y.A Tittle in Week 7 of the 1962 season to throw for 480 passing yards, four touchdowns and zero picks in the same game -- what it was: one of the single greatest games played at the quarterback position.


    He's en route to becoming one of the best quarterbacks ever. Still, less than 24 hours after throwing his way into the history books, Rodgers downplayed Sunday's effort for the ages in an appearance on "Schein on Sports" on SiriusXM radio.

    "I felt good throwing the football, but I feel that guys made good catches for me," Rodgers said matter-of-factly. "We had 280 yards after the catch, and it was pretty impressive. It was a good day for our offense, but there are still some things we can clean up, for sure."

    Clean
    up?!"... I did a poor job a couple times, of just not communicating enough with my backs on a couple of adjustment checks, and I also missed a couple throws I wanted to hit," Rodgers said. "I think that's the great thing about being on a Mike McCarthy-coached team, with Tom Clements as our offensive coordinator and Ben McAdoo my quarterback coach. They hold me to a pretty high standard every weekend, and we like to be flawless."


    Rodgers is the ultimate perfectionist. It's what makes him the best in the business. How can you not love watching him play with his pinpoint accuracy? How can you not love listening to him strive to be even better?
    By the way, don't overlook his take on the great McCarthy. This offseason, I wrote that the McCarthy-Rodgers pairing is the elite coach-quarterback combination in the NFL. McCarthy and Rodgers share a brain and -- most especially -- they have trust.

    Rodgers explained that he and McCarthy, to whom he gave "a lot of credit" for Sunday's win, "have a great trust, a mutual trust, and it's just enhanced when he gives me some latitude and I'm able to get us in good situations; it just continues to grow our relationship."

    Just how well has Rodgers played under McCarthy? He's been the best; the games and numbers prove it.

    Chew on these nuggets of domination: Since Rodgers became a starter in 2008, he's had the best quarterback rating in the league. He ranks second in passing yards and passing touchdowns in that time frame; he also has the second-lowest interception rate. Put simply, over the past five years and two games, there's been nobody better.


    He'll further burnish his "elite" status with another Super Bowl championship -- which I'm sure he'll get eventually. His legacy will also be boosted by all of the wins he's stacked up. He simply dominates, whether he's dealing with shaky offensive lines, subpar running backs or hit-or-miss defenses.

    [TABLE="align: right"]

    [TD]
    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]

    Though the Packers are 1-1 this year, they are, without question, one of the four best teams in the NFL -- thanks to the greatness of Rodgers.

    In many other areas, Green Bay doesn't rate highly. Consider how the Packers stack up against their Week 3 opponents, the Cincinnati Bengals. Cincy has the better defense, the better offensive line and a bit more sizzle at running back withGiovani Bernard.

    Of course, the Packers are loaded at one spot in particular: receiver. Even with the offseason departures of Greg Jennings and retired veteran Donald Driver, Rodgers has a diverse cast of pass-catchers at his disposal -- thanks to the savvy of general manager Ted Thompson -- in Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Randall Cobb and tight end Jermichael Finley.

    Rodgers is especially pleased with the development of Finley, who is off to a great start this season after long teasing us with his potential.

    "I think he's just understanding coverages," Rodgers said, "understanding the timing of our offense even better, knowing when he has to be open, knowing when he can take a little bit of extra time on a route. ... He's making plays -- like his touchdown catch (Sunday) -- that he hasn't been able to make in the past. ... We're all happy for him, proud of him, and just trying to find ways to get him the football."

    Speaking of getting people the football, how does Rodgers decide which of his many receivers to target?

    "I think a lot of stuff goes into that whole process. It's preparation, and it is understanding what kind of scheme you're playing. And then a lot of it is reaction and the game. ... It just depends on the match-ups; once you get into the game and the flow, I like to throw to the open guy; I don't feel like there is a 'go-to guy' on this team; I think that's what makes us dynamic, but also allows the guys to run every route to win."


    The nature of such a varied attack means that a receiver might be extremely quiet one week -- Jones, for example, went catch-less in the season opener -- and extremely busy the next -- on Sunday, Jones hauled in 11 passes for 178 yards.

    "That's going to happen sometimes..." Rodgers said. "I think everyone was impressed by James' attitude after Week 1 ... Like I told him in the huddle as we were taking a knee, just make sure you're the same guy that you were this week as you were last week."


    This past offseason was a bizarre one for Rodgers. For seemingly no good reason, Jennings and Driver foolishly took shots at him with critical comments. Then, Rodgers had to deal with the fallout that accompanied the revelation that his friend, embattled Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun -- whom Rodgers had publically supported -- was a steroid cheat.


    Still, Rodgers has this uncanny knack for letting it all fall off his shoulders, for compartmentalizing and focusing on football. Ever since the Brett Favre nonsense that accompanied his ascension to the top job, Rodgers has handled "noise" with aplomb.


    He's also a great teammate, always looking to spread credit and accept blame. Whenever we visit him at training camp, Rodgers insists on bringing out the backup quarterback or some other unsung hero, to share the publicity. It goes a long way.


    Rodgers' one "yeah, but" has been his history against the San Francisco 49ers, having lost to them to open the 2012 season, then again in the postseason, and once more to open this season. Even so, he refused to use the "h-word" when asked about the hatred and bad blood between the Niners andPackers.

    San Francisco is a more complete team than Green Bay and has a better
    chance of winning the Super Bowl this year. But don't let that distract you from Rodgers' greatness.


    The Packers will have a chance for retribution -- because ofAaron Rodgers.

    Though the matchups suggest the Bengals might win in Cincinnati this Sunday, I'm picking Green Bay -- because ofAaron Rodgers.
    There's nobody better in the league right now. There's been nobody better since he became thePackers' starter.
    You'll tell your grandkids you saw Manning and Brady, and you'll also tell them you saw Aaron Rodgers.

    And here's the beautiful part: He's only just begun.

    Teddy Bridgewater is the consensus top quarterback in this year's draft and will probably go 2nd overall. He's 6'3 190lbs. That's too small to even play wr. But has anyone here heard anything at all questioning his size ? That's way too small to play quarterback in the NFL. Imagine if a top white college qb was that size. All we'd be hearing non stop is that he's too small to play qb in the NFL

    Nope, but we've sure as hell have heard how Manziel "won't translate to the NFL" and other such garbage. Remember, this is Obama's America we're living in. Its illegal to criticize a black. We must all repeat the mantra that Teddy Bridgewater, EJ Manuel, Brett Hundley and Tajh Boyd will be 1st ballot hall of famers, and that RGKnee would have been up there with them if only he could have stayed healthy.

    The thing that makes my blood boil is what Phillyfanatic said earlier, it won't be Terrelle Pryor or Scam Newton thats replaced by these quotabacks, but rather young white QBs like Gabbert, Locker, Weeden, and Ponder. You would think TMZSPN and the rest of the sports media would be a little bit more subtle about trying to shoehorn these quotabacks in but they're not even trying anymore. Their agenda is so blatantly obvious.

    Colt McCoy had a similar build and slipped on draft board because his "slim" build. I recall MSM stories about him eating fatty foods so that weight would stick on his frame.

    it's also funny how they say Johnny Manziel is too short to play in the NFL but Tajh Groyd who's the same height and much slower is supposed to be a 1st round lock.

    Brett Hundley is someone I never even heard of until this morning. But I've been hearing his name mentioned all day long. I really do think they get together in meetings and say let's try and push this quotaback tomorrow, or let's tear down this white player

    I don't know much about the teams playing tonight - Kansas @ Philadelphia - but I'll be cheering for KC because I want to see Alex Smith succeed and, needless to say, I don't like the "reformed" dog killer on the other side. After Smith's winning record in San Francisco only to be dumped at a time when he was one of the leading QBs in the NFL in several areas (passer rating and completion %) I really want him to have a more successful season than Kaepernick and Harbaugh back in SF.

    Philadelphia looked promising at the beginning with all their offensive weapon but from what I've seen so far they've basically only utilized Jackson and McCoy. **** 'em, go Chiefs.

    Barwin's having a great first half. He's all over the place.
