    Two seasons ago fully half the defensive players on the Titans were white, plus Tennessee had the only white wideout who was the number one receiver on his team in Drew Bennett. Two years later Bennett is gone along with most of the white defensive players and the Titans are just another Caste NFL team.


    When Tennessee drafted Vince Young over Matt Leinart last year and then followed that pick up in the second round with fat and lazy LenDale White, it was clear the team was going in a new direction. The subsequent screwing over of QB Billy Volek was merely the icing on the cake. Divisional rival Jacksonville would appear to be the new role model for Jeff Fisher and company.


    Kerry Collins is Young's backup. Though a solid pocket passer who can be outstanding at times, Collins lack of mobility has prevented him from having a better career. Give Young Collins' arm and brain and you might have a great quarterback. Give Collins Young's arm and brain and you end up with Byron Leftwich.


    Three whites start on the offensive line, which looks pretty good and may be Young's best friend this season. David Stewart starts at right tackle, Benji Olson at right guard, and Michael Roos from Eastern Washington at left tackle. Daniel Loper and Eugene Amano are backups.


    Ben Hartsock out of OSU is the third string tight end. Casey Cramer has the honor of being the backup blocking fullback.


    There are two white starters on defense. Kyle Vanden Bosch is a typical "overachiever" who had some injury problems and was on the NFL's discard pile until Fisher to his credit gave him a chance two years ago. Vanden Bosch responded by being both a top sacker and tackler at end.


    Ryan Fowler, signed during the offseason from the Cowboys where he was a backup, has won the starting MLB job, though it would be no big suprise if Stephen Tulloch surpasses him at some point during the season given the number of writers and drunk white fans who prefer Tulloch.


    Travis LaBoy and Sean Conover are backup ends. Donnie Nickey out of Ohio State, who has been in well-publicized altercations with black teammates in training camp the past two summers (including being spit on by LenDale White), is a backup safety.


    NUMBER OF WHITE STARTERS: 5


    APPROXIMATE NUMBER OF WHITE PLAYERS ON 53 MAN ROSTER: 16


    GRADE: F+

    Newly-signed WR Mike Williams won't play against the Bengals on Sunday.

    Williams can't be expected to know the playbook by Sunday, but he can be expected to be his same old lazy self, as he reportedly showed up in Tennessee looking heavy. "He hasn't been doing much over the last month or so since being released so we'll just take it one day at a time," coach Jeff Fisher said. Keep up the good work, Mike.

    the immortal Mike Williams... no way any white players (and not many black ons either) would get that many chances after being not only terrible but also lazy and stupid.

    I just cannot believe this turd showed up on another NFL roster. He has stunk on every team he has been on. He has no motivation and his combine numbers were horrific. There really has to be some other thing going on that we as fans are not privy to. Maybe it's his USC connection and first round drafting. Maybe he is hung like a horse and the ****s that run the league think that is the mark of a great receiver. Or maybe it's just mass insanity.

    This is possibly the worst WR ever drafted in the 1st round (or drafted in general). He's beyond slow, not quick in any way, bad hands, plays like a p*ssy, lazy, fat, did I mention slow, and SELFISH to boot! I wonder what Mike Hass will be doing this sunday while Williams remains on an active NFL roster? Probably in street clothes rooting on the Bears WR corps as they stink up the field some more.

    You think Mike Williams couldnt get open at the NFL level??? Wait until you see the Calvin Johnson project come to a screaching halt. Haha, it's gunna be so funny to watch yet another overrated black WR's 40 time look a little innacurate after only a season or two.

    And to think, the Lions did so well with Mike Furrey starting at #2...

    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Mike Williams weighed 271 pounds upon reporting to the Titans last week.

    His supposed playing weight its 229, and it's reportedly 11 pounds heavier than what Williams tipped the scales at when he tried out two weeks earlier. Mort adds that the Titans plan to use Williams as an H-back, tight end type.

    Mike Williams-WR- Titans Dec. 2 - 5:15 pm et


    Mike Williams didn't catch a pass in his Titans debut Sunday.

    Williams had one of the ugliest drops we've seen in the third quarter, and Vince Young stared him down hard afterwards. He looks every bit of 260+ pounds.

    After watching Kyle Vanden Bosch once again dominate a sumo black tackle, it's safe to suggest he's the most dominant DE in the game. Yes, I would take Kyle over Kerney, Allen, and Kampman. My god, this is the same guy who could barely get playing time on the bottom-dwelling CARDINALS (back when they were even worse)!

    I know he only has 9 sacks currently, but I think he's stronger and quicker than Kerney, Allen, and Kampman. Oh, and let's not forget that "non-stop motor," haha.

    no way is he quicker than Allen. Allen's crazy quick. also, Kerney looks very sharp after losing some weight.

    I think its safe to say that at a minimum, 4 of the top 5 DE's in the league (and probably all 5) are White. But somehow, the league will continue to draft Blacks based upon their superior <insert favorite black mythic trait> to fill NFL rosters.

    I know following the Vikings for years and putting up with bust <Derrick Alexander> after bust <Duane Clemons> after bust <Demetrius Underwood> after bust <Kenechi Udeze> after bust <Erasmus James> at the DE position (And those are only the first rounders, if I added the second rounders it would be twice as bad), and then to finally get a guy like Brian Robison, only to see him get spot duty behind these clowns... sickening.

    "no way is he quicker than Allen. Allen's crazy quick. also, Kerney looks very sharp after losing some weight."

    I disagree, but who cares, right? I'm sure all of us here at CF love both of these super-quick DE's (and have our personal favorites). If you asked me to pick two DE's to start on my team, it would be these two.

    You're right about Kerney, he must be the most ripped dude in the league right now. Atlanta let him walk in favor of a more "pure athlete," rookie DE Jamal Anderson, who has ZERO sacks and 24 tackles this year in place of Patrick, haha. Holy crap, you could insert a running back, TE, safety, etc at DE and he could get more tackles that that (after 12 whole games starting)!

    When will the NFL realize that 95% of black DE's who are drafted high end up SUCKING BIGTIME. Also with Kerney, it's great to have someone to actually care about on the Seahawks (along with Brian Russell).

    Vanden Bosch didn't utterly dominate just any sumo, but rather Marcus McNeill, who was named to the Pro Bowl last season as a rookie! Yet somehow this young "star" in only his second season has nowhere near the needed foot speed to deal with an in-shape, ferocious presence like Vanden Bosch.

    I was listening to the game on the radio, and the announcers were all but begging the Chargers coaching staff to double team Vanden Bosch as McNeill was beaten on play after play. Let's see if McNeill makes the Pro Bowl again this year. Odds are he will as the usual pattern is that once a black sumo makes it, he's an automatic lock to be mindlessly re-elected every year for at least a decade no matter how poorly he plays.

    It's nice to hear from you, Don! As of late, it seems like "The Father of Caste Football" hasnt weighed in on many of the great NFL happenings (and there have been plenty caste-busting occurences this season).

    I've heard you make this "black OL goes to every pro-bowl" point several times now, and you couldnt be more right on. Jonathan Ogden, Tariq Glenn, Orlando Pace, Will Shields, etc, made countless pro-bowls simply because the players vote counts the most. Since most players are black, and blacks ACTUALLY look out for one another, black OL always stink-up pro-bowl rosters. All while guys like Matt Light and Ryan Lilja sit at home and watch.

    I doubt Vanden Bosch will make the pro-bowl (even though he went last year) because his spot will probably be taken by a more natural "afflete."

    I moved cross-country this week, the preparations for which took up all my posting time for the last month or so. I'll be around a lot more again soon.


    My all-time favorite undeservingdecorated sumowas Reuben Brown, who was cut by the Bills right after being named a Pro Bowler!

    Reuben Brown was a legend! and yeah, how can you get so overrated so quickly... McNeill is a prime example and so is another black rookie, Levi Brown who got schooled by Kerney.

    I listened to the Seattle-Arizona game on the radio Sunday, and afterward a lot of callers were saying that Brown was another "fat, slow" lineman drafted by the Cardinals in the first round, which is exactly right. One would think Russ Grimm and Ken Whisenhunt would have known better after being hired after last season than to continue the franchise's time-honored tradition of wasting high draft picks on immobile sumos. The main reason Arizona has been a joke of a team for so long is because its offensive line is always bad and is always manned by sumos at guard and tackle.

    My personal pick for overrated black rookie is Colts tackle Tony Ugoh. He's actually not bad at all. Unfortunately he is the only black player on the line, so the sports media automatically says he is the best, and to hear them talk, you would think he single handedly blocks everybody trying to sack Manning while four anonymous white guys stand around doing nothing every play.

    i actually agree with you on this one. he's played well enough for a rookie, but also has a privilege of playing for one of top 3 best o-lines in the NFL which helps a lot, especially if you block for a QB with Manning's pocket awareness.

    Starting guard Benji Olson retired today. DE Travis LaBoy signed with Arizona a few weeks ago. It wouldn't be surprising if the Titans have only 3 or 4 whites starting in 2008, quite a change from three years ago when Tennessee had 8 white starters, 24 whites on the roster -- and fully half their defensive players were white. The Titans received Caste Football's highest grade in '05 but are now rapidly headed for F- territory under the Caste leadership of Jeff Fisher and Vince Young.

    LB Josh Stamer from the Buffalo Bills signed with the Titans yesterday. Hopefully he will be used as something more than White Special Teams Demon/Team Mascot, but with Jeff Fisher at the helm of a shipturning hard to-Caste, I won't hold my breath.

    Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said that he is "enormously pleased" with the strenuous off-season conditioning program followed by running back LenDale White. "The NFL is a year-round profession now," said Fisher, "and with what these guys are making they know their jobsare always at stake. It's an honor to be a coach in a league in which all the players take such great pains to stay in tip-top shape."
