    Matt Sexton with an outstanding punt return for the Steelers. He used his moves and speed to get to the outside. The announcers didn't bother to say how long it was but it looked to be around 50 yards. He also had a 36 yard punt return in the Hall of Fame game.

    Mason Rudolph has also been very good this preseason. My guess at this point is they want to trade him for draft picks and Tomlin wants to mentor tha yung brutha Haskins once Big Ben retires. Just my gut feeling. I also think the Browns black GM is hesitant to sign Mayfield to a deserved contract extension because he wants a black QB....call me crazy but I don't think either scenario is too far flung.

    I saw the 14 yard run. He almost took it to the house. Great power, vision and speed!

    Watching the game and just found out for the first time that Jake Gervase is now an inside linebacker. Glad to see he’s at least still in the NFL.

    The Rams vs the Raiders is just a fun game to watch. It's tied 10-10 but the Rams penalties are what's killed them more than anything.

    Jake Funk is up to 7 for 56 yards and we are in the 4th quarter. He has looked more explosive than Jones which is good. I just wish they would throw to him as well. The kid can do everything.

    JJ Koski has 5 catches for 39 yards.
    Landen Akers has 4 catches for 38 yards.

    Muse looks good for the Raiders. Nathan Peterman has rushed 4 times for 36 yards. The guy can really run and is very tough.

    Nice 13 yard run by Jake Funk; but missed his longest run of 19 yards; did anybody get to see it? ....saw at one time where his stats were 6 carries for 37 yards; then finished game w 7 carries for 56 yards
    Nice game for JJ Koski !

    Tom Kennedy had 4 receptions for 61 yards for the Lions

    Don't understand about once a week i have to Log-in AGAIN...then there is a cookie problem. If you see me missing from time to it's because of technical issues
    .....Don & Leonardfan have been helpful to me

    Hoping to see RB Sandro Platzgummer gets some more carries today vs. Browns

    It was on a 3rd and long, around 28 yards to gain. So he had a nice hole to run through and then took off and avoided a tackler or two, it was a nice run that the crowd responded to.

    The Rams had a lot of White WRs, TEs and of course Funk on the field, at least by NFL standards. The Raiders also had a nice sprinkling on both sides of the ball, as did Cincy and Washington earlier. But of course we'll have to wait for the annual White purge to see how rosters shake out.

    Carter Coughlin reeking havoc for the 2nd week in a row. Hopefully he’s starting somewhere next to Blake Martinez.

    TD catch David Sills.

    If Sills is ever going to get the opportunity for some NFL playing time one would think it needs to be this season. The Giants supposedly improved their WR group this year but it's still not very impressive. I've already predicted their first round pick Toney will be a big-time bust. Kenny Golladay was a big offseason signing but is coming off a blown out knee, Sterling Shepherd is an average receiver, John Ross is a perpetually injured first round mega-bust, and Darius Slayton has talent but isn't close to being a star. Sills' big "problem," like that of Jake Kumerow, is that he's a tall outside receiver, which the NFL dislikes almost as much as White cornerbacks, though I imagine if Sills ever does play much he'll be forced to do so as the obligatory White slot receiver.

    David Sills has looked good. We all know he has the talent to be a starter. Like Don said though he is in a very hard position to crack as they hate
    tall, fast outside wide receivers. They have to keep the normies thinking that all whites are non athletic and make sure we know our roles. Sills has
    played good in the last 2 preseason games. I just wish they would give him alot more reps. One game to go. Hoping he makes the team.

    Sad that Sandro Platzgummer didn't play after looking great last week. I guess the Giants figured they would give him the Ryan Nall treatment. Know
    your role kid. We only have you here for the laughs and giggles. I can't believe he didn't even get to run the ball at all. This is insane!

    AJ McCarron tore his ACL...the Falcons need someone to backup Ryan. Franks has been beyond awful.

    Easton Stick - the QB that preceded Trey Lance - I believe he was the winningest QB in NDSU history looks to be outperforming Trey Lance in this game. Stick was a great dual threat for NDSU but mostly treated as an afterthought. Meanwhile Lance after one season got all the hype in the world. Funny how that works.

    Lance has an INT and has been sacked so far too.

    Stick ruled for four years....
    Stats, rings, legs, arm.....but he’s white.
    The 6’1” thing shouldn’t matter due to fact the Cards drafted Murray #1.
    Yet Stick was drafted in the fifth round and Lance is being slobbered on by the media......
    I saw that Murray was ranked in the 30’s on the top 100 player list on the nfl network.. Higher than McCaffrey......Really?

    The Chargers have quite an array of talented White linebackers. Kyler Fackrell, who the Giants were foolish to not resign, was a menace tonight. Then you’ve got Drue Tranquill returning from injury. Beyond those two, there is rookie Nick Niemann who appears to be another White Tackling Machine (WTM). He appeared to always be around the ball. Cole Christiansen, out of Army, seems like another talent. Hopefully he can make the squad or land on the practice squad with an opportunity to develop.

    They also have NT Forrest Merrill and S Ben DeLuca. Both should have been drafted this past spring.

    Yes, I was only focusing on the line backing core but they have Whites across the board on defense. We’ll have to see how severe the White Purge is but at minimum they’ll have Bosa, Fackrell, Tranquill and Niemann. That’s much better than most teams.

    Let's hope for the best. Gaziano may also stick around - another White athlete that should have been drafted but was instead forced to go the UDFA route. The 49ers on the other hand are a pathetic team - they showed initial promise a few years ago but have gone right down the caste crapper - Lynch and Shanahan are both caste clowns.
