    Peyton Hillis, RB Broncos: he carried 22 times for 129 yards and a TD against the Jets Sunday, also had another TD run called back on a holding penalty. some great running with plenty of broken tackles and some nifty moves, too. first white to get 100 yard this season [​IMG] . Hillis became a first runningback to rush for a 100 yards versus 3rd ranked Jets defense. Peyton has a chance to be the first white runningback to lead his teams in yards since Mike Alstott in 1999.

    The lions are even worse with Culpepper behind center. So far they are 0-12 and might not get a win this season. Witten is having a great game with 6 catches for 87 yards in the second quarter!

    Backrow, they DID write him off. I was listening to that game last night on the radio, and when Kyle Eckel got those carries, Coach Dennis Green made statements like "Well, Eckel is what football is all about. He works hard and has alot of heart" I seem to remember Green saying something along the lines of he is not the most gifted player etc.

    It is so obvious that there are many white running backs who could be and should have started but will NEVER start. Forget about Sam McGuffie. Anyone who thinks he will get a shot in the NFL is completely out of his mind. I wold bet my mortgage that he will never get a legitimate shot. He will get drafted in the mid rounds and languish on the practice squad or best case scenario be buried in the depth chart and get garbage carries at the end of blowout games just like Eckel did last night.

    Backrow, I believe Ryan Boschetti was signed by Redskins this week, so that Redskins can have a token white man on defense again.
    Also, Weston Dacus was placed on IR.Edited by: referendum

    Based on what's happened in the NFL over the past 30 years, the odds are overwhelmingly in favor of you winning that bet. Brad Hoover, Heath Evans, Brock Forsey, Travis Jervey and Peyton Hillis are the only white running backs to get starts in the past decade, and in each case it was after a slew of black running backs got injured and they became the "emergency" starter. All five did "unexpectedly well" but what happened? Hoover -- a record setting tailback in college -- went right back to blocking fullback as soon as a black was healthy enough to play as did Evans, Jervey went right back to being a White Special Teams Demon, and Forsey wascut andquickly out of the league.

    Hillis will have to be Superman in the next game or two to avoid going back to his racially mandated role of fullback. Edited by: Don Wassall

    well, Mike Alstott played a lot of runningback in his day, he even had couple of designated black fullbacks blocking for him.

    other that that i agree with you guys.

    Let the cannibalizing begin in the NFC East and South!

    Tampa/New Orleans is a key game. Hard to say what exactly will occur. I have faith in Drew Brees but I think Tampa might pull out a slim victory.

    I'm not a "Team fan" - but the playoff picture will get a lot clearer.

    Backrow, thats great news about Vobora. I love it when low round and undrafted white players make an impact.
    Also, in looking at the Bills roster, shouldn't you add Blake Costanzo and Jon Corto to the linebacker list.

    <H1>CHARGERS: Better late than never for Hester</H1>

    SAN DIEGO ---- Jacob Hester says his pregame preparations and weekend routine will remain the same. But he knows the status quo is changing in a big way on Sunday.

    Due to make his first career start when the Chargers host the Atlanta Falcons, Hester couldn't help but laugh when asked 'what's new?' after Friday's practice.

    "I'm getting ready to play; that's new," said Hester, who will start at fullback in place of injured Mike Tolbert. "I'm excited about it. I haven't had a chance to start yet, and it's been a while since I played a lot, so I'm excited and trying to make the most of it."

    Hester, the team's third-round draft pick from LSU, has seen nearly all of his action on special teams this season. He's starting Sunday because Tolbert has been plagued by shoulder and neck pain in recent weeks after suffering a stinger.

    Tolbert's absence means that Hester will receive his first major dose of playing time on offense.

    "You get a little pep in your step any time you know you're going to play a little bit," Hester said. "But you don't want to take it any different because I have been playing on (special) teams so you don't want to make it seem like you haven't been getting ready.

    "But you get a little excited about it."

    Hester said he has taken hardly any snaps in practice at fullback this season, with most of his practice work coming at running back when LaDainian Tomlinson and Darren Sproles need breathers.

    He received a few fullback snaps in practice last week as Tolbert's health continued to decline. Then, when Tolbert was forced out of last Sunday's game against Indianapolis, Hester replaced him and caught three passes, including one that resulted in his first career touchdowns.

    This week, he saw significant action in practice.

    "Jacob Hester has had a good week of practice," Chargers coach Norv Turner said. "He's a real versatile player. He's excited about the opportunity to play, and we're excited to see him."

    Hester is clamoring for a chance to run the ball. He has just two carries all season and on his last one, he lost a fumble against New England on Oct. 12.

    That was a disheartening experience for Hester, who fumbled just once in 364 career carries during four years at LSU. He said he has no quarrel with any offensive coaches who might have temporarily lost confidence in him.

    "I don't blame them if they did," Hester said. "My purpose to go in there was to run out the clock, and I didn't do it. I don't blame them if they did kind of worry about me being a rookie in that situation.

    "But hopefully, this week and weeks coming up, I can prove myself again."

    Seven weeks later, Hester faces the biggest opportunity of his young career. He thinks back to his college reputation as a non-fumbler and makes light of his most inauspicious moment as a pro.

    "I was hoping they knew that I never do," Hester said. "I did it once my whole college career, so hopefully they know that was my one time (in the NFL) and it's out of my system."

    Castillo to start

    Defensive end Luis Castillo will return to the starting lineup Sunday after missing last week's loss to the Colts because of a groin injury.

    Castillo was listed as probable on Friday's injury report, and Turner said only a setback would keep Castillo from starting.

    Castillo said he and Jacques Cesaire will rotate snaps. Cesaire started in Castillo's place last Sunday.

    "Now it's about being smart," Castillo said. "We have a guy in Jacques who can do everything I can do, so we'll play it right."

    Et cetera

    The television blackout for Sunday's game against Atlanta was lifted Friday, when Fox 5 San Diego guaranteed the purchase of the tickets that needed to be sold for it to be on local TV. Fox 5 will donate some of the tickets to military families and injured soldiers recovering at Balboa Navy Hospital. ... DT Keith Grennan (leg) will join FB Mike Tolbert (shoulder) in missing Sunday's game. CBs Antonio Cromartie (hip) and Cletis Gordon (knee), and ILB Brandon Siler (foot) were listed as probable on Friday's injury report.
