    It will be interesting - Benkert may be a camp arm. Bortles is probably insurance behind Love if they do decide to trade Rodgers. I really do feel if they trade Rodgers it will be one of those moments that sends Green Bay into a spiral. The fact that there are Packers fans that support Gutencuck and think his record as GM is not tied to Rodgers incredible performance on the field really illustrates how the typical person blinded by allegiance to a team thinks. Something we rarely talk about are fans and their unquestioned devotion and faith in their favorite football team which is just another obstacle when trying to attack the caste system. When a fan mentions "we" when talking about there favorite team is always something that makes me shake my head.

    Since discovering the caste system and re-assessing the way I watch sports I could never go back to wanting to support and specific team or being emotionally invested in anything at that level. My personal enjoyment in sports now solely comes from watching White athletes excel and disprove the status quo in real time.

    The team that trades the superstar for good players or draft picks never gets true value for their star player beyond clearing out a potential locker room cancer.

    Back before the salary cap in the NFL crazy spectacular trades happened semi frequently. The craziest trade ever was former Olympian Ollie Matson who played for the Chicago Cardinals and he was traded for 9 players to the Los Angeles Rams who in that era were a Western Division power house. Neither team really benefited from the trade as the Cardinals nor the Rams made the playoffs after doing this spectacular trade.

    Ryan Kerrigan to the Eagles

    Trent Taylor signs with the Bengals - Taylor’s treatment while on the 49ers is another reason to turn against the Lynch/Shanahan regime

    Good for Kerrigan! Apparently his biggest sticking point in free agency was being able to compete for a starting role. Washington wasn't going to accommodate that. Kerrigan racked up 5.5 sacks last year as a backup. Frankly, it's disrespectful that it took so long for a team to sign him. I suppose that after the draft, he was able to take stock of roster situations and identify the best opportunity for playing time. Now he'll get to keep preying on the lousy NFC East offenses.

    Ryan Kerrigan is the all time sack leader for the Redskins,. He's quietly put together a Hall of Fame career. He doesn't get the credit he deserves from the mainstream media but that's nothing new for a white player.

    The black hysteria in response to Tebow being signed by the Jags really displays the extent of black fragility that exists today. Some white dude who's been out of the league for a while gets signed to play 3rd string TE and heads start exploding. Meanwhile, the league remains 70%+ black, but it's whitey who's privileged. LOL

    Any criticism by a white of a black athlete is under the microscope for racial motivation, white athletes get trashed all day often entirely by blacks/DWFs, no one suspects any racial motivation and if you call it out people will think you are a "nazi"/stupid, like all the Klitschko hate which continues to this day in boxing communities. Though racial motivation is essentially admitted for the hysterics over Tebow.

    This narrative of the NFL having favoritism towards whites helps the caste agenda by implying that the limited white players in on the field are only there due to "white privilege" and are not even just the few outliers who could make it into the NFL which is the usual narrative.
    It helps promote the black physical superiority narrative further.

    Per rumors, Colts want to extend LT Eric Fisher long-term if he stays healthy and returns to Pro Bowl form. I like that! He’s been criminally underrated and went through so much unwarranted hate early in his career (injuries didn’t help). I know the Colts (understandably so) aren’t a popular team here but I like them bc of their O lines (my top position, bucking the trend here). I like Chris Ballard for how he assembles his O lines (even if he leaves other areas to be desired). Also looks like Will Fries is being groomed to be Glowinski’s successor at RG (impending FA, I believe).

    lol right. Insecure little bitches. Tebow's going to be grinding on Special Teams just to make the team and they're acting like he's coming for their glamour!

    @Snowplow I'll be cheering for The Colts this season. That snowplow should do wonders for that Wentz comeback! Jack Doyle is also as reliable as they come at TE. Really do wish a paleface would see some time on Defense, but is what it is.

    Definitely rooting for Wentz, and Doyle has also been criminally underrated and overlooked. After him the TE position looks bleak but Doyle is definitely the clear starter and TE1. Colts O line depth is solid as well (Pinter, Fries, Reed as backup G/C), tackle not so much but 5 started is nothing to complain about as it becomes alarmingly rare. Maybe them trying to avoid looking “racist”.
    Also, re: Ballard/Reich- they made the stunning, anti-Caste move of putting Braden Smith at RT in 2018. And as a rookie who was a career guard in HS and college. Despite size, technique, etc. they all said he could never play tackle because, you guessed it, short arms and he proved them wrong. Always going to have a soft spot for the two because of that.
    As for defense, Robert Windsor got some time elevated from the PS near the end of the year. Maybe they’ll let him develop into at least a rotational piece, he was productive at Penn State (a school Ballard seems to like). Jordan Glasgow is a stud on ST but he may be relegated to WSTD. Still, as I’ve said, nothing wrong with that. Still get to play, and the best ones still make good bucks. Hoping at least one can get more time on defense, but never complaining about 7 starters, and a snowplow OL. Still a team for me to like.

    Forgot they drafted Windsor! Big fan of his and was pleasantly surprised when Indy Drafted him. Glad Glasgow is on a roster, be nice if they'd allow him beyond Special Teams.

    It constantly amazes me how weak the Negro mans physci is when it comes to strong alpha male white men, their inferiority complex jumps off the charts. I truly hope Tebow does well but he is already 33 so it is now or never for him. Of course he should never have been in the situation in first place, we all know why he was forced out of football.

    Tebow’s #85 Jags jersey is an NFL best seller. Tiki Barber opined that it must be memorabilia investors buying them up. He couldn’t bring himself to admit that Tebow is just a beloved athlete.

    Exactly! Even if Tebow doesn’t offer much on the field (I think he does), it’s a good business decision for Jacksonville. Which other 3rd string TE can bring in that sort of merchandise cash flow? Obviously no one.

    I also hate this idea put forward by the corporate sports media that every roster spot is valuable. They aren’t. Every team is rostering between 10-20 black scrubs who could be cut tomorrow and it would have zero impact on the teams ability to win their next game. In baseball, there’s the concept of replacement level players (which is what the stat WAR uses for its comparison metric). The bottom quarter of any roster are replacement level guys. Having Tebow amongst them is a no-brainer as he provides benefits the typical replacement level guy simply cannot. The fact that the corporate sports media cannot grasp this simple concept shows that their opinions are not logical. They are based on something else, anti-White animus.

    The 90 man roster many times have long shot track and field, strong men and rugby guys on the roster. Now the NFL has international roster exemption players , Tebow is better than that level of player.

    Tyler Gaffney and Kelvin Benjamin are attempting to comeback after being out of football for a few years too and nobody is saying anything. It's just jealousy that fuels the Tebow hate...

    I also really like this post. The tail end of a football roster probably has less impact than even the bench warmers in the NBA. The WAR stat really puts that point in perspective.

    Most of what passes for sports media can be discounted due to the politics they hold. Back in the day teams would bring in local college talent at least to draw some interest and get some media buzz. But now its mostly a flim flam meant to impress that both management and the idiots in the media are expert professionals, and I'm the pope.
