    at least it was Sean Lee with an INT. 33 yard return to pretty much seal the day.

    what was up with Foles tho... now they are going to go back to Vick...

    EDIT second INT of a day for Barkley, damn

    Absolutely bogus penalty to hand the down syndrome quotaback the win. How can he possibly outplay Brady on top of that? Ugly day so far, with quotabacks getting wins and not much else to speak of.

    What a crap call in the Patriots game, even if its a rule i wonder how many times that is never given. What a home decision. Refs stole the limelight and the game away from the patriots.

    Yep thats possibly the most obvious case of crooked refs ever. Anyone who believes that these NFL, and NCAA refs are at all legit, contact me, I have some ocean front property in Arizona for sale.

    The refs screwed the Patriots but at the end of the day Brady played poorly. Brady just isn't the player he used to be.

    At least Cooper had a good day. 6 catches for 88 yards, basically the only receiver who did anything on the Eagles. I'm just waiting for the Weenieworld rant.

    Yeah as crazy as it seems Geno actually outplayed Brady today. I find it hard to believe how poor Brady can play at times given his proven greatness.

    I haven't been watching the games but just going by box scores and stat lines this has been the most depressing day of the season so far.

    sCam won and had a decent game

    Gremlin won and had a good game

    Philly lost and Barkley had an awful debut. The dwf's will never forget 3 int by a white qb in his first game. And foles didn't play well either. I did notice that cooper put up some good numbers which leads me to believe there might be some resentment building up on the part of affletes like desean and Lesean. Maybe they're not playing as hard for foles because they think he's favoring KKK Cooper.

    Tampa also lost which bothers me because it means Glennon won't be starting next year . It'll probably be Mudwater or Groyd

    I have to say worst of all was the Pats losing to Down syndrome Smiff and the jets

    That's two solid outings in a row. As long as he has a white QB throwing to him, he'll continue to produce.

    Geno did outplay Brady but in all fairness Brady was under far more pressure. That being said the more I watch the Patriots games the more I have to blame the incomplete passes on Brady rather than his receivers. Even last week he missed passes Edelman could have caught if they weren't short on that game winning drive. The announcers were obviously orgasmic over Geno though, it was pretty pathetic. I thought Brady should have tried to get Collie more involved but that wasn't going to happen and can someone tell Bill that Blount shouldn't be returning kickoffs? The only times they started at the 20 were when he took a knee, the other times they started behind the 20 - he's just not fast or quick enough to give you good field position - should be Edelman or Ridley though I'm sure Ridley isn't back there because of questions about his hands. So last week Amendola gets knocked out and then has to be helped off the field after a helmet to helmet hit and no flag or fine was issued but Chris Jones pushes the back of a teammate to get better penetration and that is deemed too dangerous a play and gets an immediate 15 yard penalty and automatic first down even though it virtually hands the win to the Jets on a penalty even the announcers have never seen called. Way to go on safety NFL - I'm sure it had nothing to do with the rabid desire to see Geno Smith succeed.

    Case Keenum has been excellent. Hopefully he'll play well enough the rest of the way to keep Houston from drafting a quotaback.

    Houston is a good example of the 3rd string qb being the most talented. It's ridiculous that Keenum went undrafted. I felt that once he got his shot he'd make a good impression. So far so good.

    How many examples do we need to see of this quotaback "magic," especially in contrast to the mediocre play of the best young white QBs? Not only is RGIII back to his "brilliant" rookie form, Scam produces pretty consistently, Crapernick is not going away, and somehow Thaddeous Lewis, who wasn't even good in college, can come right in to the NFL and produce better stats than the BEST white college QBs can (Gabbart, Ponder, Barkley, etc.). Not to mention, of course, Geno Smiff besting Tom Brady.

    Look at all the white college QBs who were stars in the NCAA over the past few years, and where they now stand in the NFL: Tebow (unemployed), Leinart (unemployed), Clausen (is he still even on the Panthers?), Quinn (where is he now?), Locker (constantly injured, still has a slight chance to avoid the "bust" label), Gabbart (already locked into "bust" status), Ponder (already locked into "bust" status), Barkley (the kind of "debut" we should logically have seen from Pryor, Thaddeous Lewis and so many other quotabacks, bud didn't).

    Only Andrew Luck, Matt Stafford, and to a lesser degree Andy Dalton are considered sure fire starters among the young white QBs. It just defies logic to think that none of the overrated, highly touted black rookie QBs have those Gabbart-Barkley type games, and often do "amazing" things on the field, while the young white QBs just can't seem to find that kind of "magic." Maybe it's like loose hips or something, or that "natural" rhythm "white boys" just don't have.

    Something mysterious, something unprecedented, happened at the beginning of Scam's rookie season. Scam was a tailor made bust, even more obviously all hype than JaMarcus was. And yet, he lit the league on fire from his first game. Since that time, instead of the Quincy Carter-Akili Smith-Tavarous Jackson-type performances we'd grown to know and love, we've seen one "magical" unlikely effort after another, even from unheralded, virtually ignored pedestrian blacks like Pryor and Thaddeous Lewis. I will never accept all of this as being legitimate. Deny it all you want, but the quotaback phenomenon is real, and it is here to stay.

    I disagree, the Patriots are doing very well to be 5-2 with what Brady's had to work with on offense. As great as they are on offense, they put up an occasional stinker game. That's how I'd classify this one.

    With Gronk back, and with Collie, Edelman and hopefully Amendola, the Pats will only get better as the season goes on. Don't forget, Brady wants to play until he's 50. :smile:

    It's been kind of a down day so far, but Matt Ryan was outstanding playing without his two top receivers, Phillip Rivers had another very good game, and Riley Cooper has over 200 receiving yards the past two games since Vick was injured. I haven't checked the defensive stats but I'm sure the usual stalwarts did well.

    Scam did not set the league on fire if you really look at it. He has only won a few games when his team was still in the playoff picture (since he was in the league) and the same goes with his stats, just like his garbage time wins, are garbage time stats. You forget that we have White qbs that come in and have great games only to be ignored. Brian Hoyer looked great, he leapfrogged Jason Campbell, but now is on IR. Foles played great last week, to the point where they were thinking of not putting Vick back in when he was healthy. If you watched the game, Jackson played horrible, bad routes, drops, "hands of glue" Avant even had a drop.

    Barkley had little time to work with and just didn't see Sean Lee, who is a great defensive player. The 2nd pick was something he should have thrown away, rookie mistake, he was presured in the pocket, got out of it, and had a defender on him and decides to throw it as far as he can, basically a punt, but with little time left in the game it took them out of it. Before that he was moving the ball well.

    Blacks play harder for black qbs, an black coaches, I think the problem is they dumb down the offense for black players and expect more from White ones, but the simplified offenses are working better now. Black qbs tend to have success early on and fade out while Whites get better over tme, this is because coordinators have a hard time defending an unconventional style of qb play, they need time to look at weaknesses, these quotabacks didn't master the art of playing the position an its more like backyard football.

    Just like a top defensive end said the other week, that he would rather go against a top, polished LT than a raw rookie with bad/sloppy or no technique, its just harder to know what he is going to do and how to counter it, its the same thing with most of these quotabacks.

    Many White qbs have spent time since at least high school, maybe even junior high or earlier at qb camps, or just with a private qb coach, or a good coach at the school refining their technique learning the conventional way of playing the qb position. Blacks go to these camps as well but usually still play differently, most never seem to master the art of quarterbacking. They revert to scrambling or dinking and dunking when pressure comes there way.

    I wasn't really impressed with Smiff. Cutler was injured and McCown played well, the Redskins barely won, similar to the Jets. 233 yards 1 td 1 int isn't lighting the league on fire, Smiff was average, great running game though. Ivory is a talented runner when healthy. THere was a catch that Gronk should have made that might have changed the game, it looked like the light was in his eyes? he looked right at it and it went over his head, like literally where he could have grabbed it.

    McCown looked to have outplayed RG3 but the Redskins had the advantage with the running game

    Scam 204 yards 1 td, sacked twice for a loss of 24 yards, looking at the box score, his d won that game, they had a pick 6 and a fumble recovery.

    Woodhead is still on pace for 1k from scrimmage which is a great thing.


    Yesterday everyone was glad that pretty much all of the top rated quotabacks played poorly/lost, except Morris who played against another quotaback, he threw 4 picks. Most of the quotabacks this year in the NFL have played average to poor. There must be a conspiracy if there is one week where their teams happen to win.

    Is there an agenda to push black qbs into the league? yes but they keep sucking or show flashes and then fade away even though they get 5 years. What year is Freeman on now? His sophomore slump lasted several years.

    Must be affirmative action at work again helping these quotabacks put up decent stats. AA works in mysterious ways.

    Weenieworld never quits do they.

    Riley Cooper caught six passes for 88 yards in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Cowboys.

    For the second straight week, we caution owners not to overreact to Cooper's nice line. This time, much of his yardage came in garbage time with Dallas in a soft zone. Prior to this two-week run, Cooper hadn't topped two catches for 29 yards in a game all year. His role has not changed.

    Here they refer to Hartline as a "possession receiver."

    Brian Hartline caught six passes for 69 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to Buffalo.

    Possession receiver Hartline made some critical first-down catches, but he still hasn't cleared 70 receiving yards in any game since the season opener. He's a low-ceiling WR3 option entering a Week 8 game in Foxboro.

    We're still in October yet the players aren't bedecked in faggy/feminist/mammary pink today. What happened? Did DWF Nation reach a sufficient level of disgust with the annual stunt causing it to be toned down?
