    Caste Football Looks at the 2010 Dallas Cowboys</font>

    The Cowboys were one of the first teams to go coal black in the 1990s, with Jimmy Johnson taking over for legend Tom Landry after the Jerry Jones fired him. Jones and Johnson combined to make one of the best caste combinations of all time, but the Steelers and Bucaneers of 2010 are giving them a run for their money. Johnson's only white starters were QB Troy Aikman, FB Moose Johnson, and TE Jay Novacek. The Cowboys of present day have a few more white starters and white players on the roster than their predecessors. Dallas is an above average team in terms of white players and definatly starters, with 8 white starters and 17 white players on the roster.

    QB Tony Romo is one of the better quarterbacks in the business, and can both run and throw. Every interception Romo throws is usually lauded and booed by the DWFs, who don't give him any reprives. At least Romo proved he can win in the playoffs, with a blowout win against the Eagles last season. Fourteenth year veteran Jon Kitna is Romo's backup. Kitna, who's had stints with the Bengals and Lions, is a more than capable backup to Tony Romo. Second year man Stephen McGee is the third string, who is going to be Romo's next backup in a year or two, and potentially succeed him down the road.

    All Pro tight end Jason Witten is one of the best in the business, and Romo's friend and roommate. Witten is a slick route runner, has good hands, and can run well after the catch. He can also block well. Witten has also appeared in six straight pro bowls. With Deon Anderson out, Chris Gronkowski, brother of Patriot's tight end Rob, has a chance to seize the starting fullback job. Gronkowski might actually be given a carry, but that might be wishful thinking. John Phillips would've been a backup tight end, but he's on I.R.

    After Alex Barron's dreadful performance last week against the Redskins last week, in which even the most caste announcers hoped that right tackle Marc Colombo would return soon. Colombo will return this week to claim his starting right tackle spot back. Colombo, in his ninth year out of Boston College, has been a mainstay on the Cowboy's offensive line for the past few years. The Cowboys will also love to have starting left guard Kyle Kosier back this week as well. The ninth year veteran is a great run blocker for Dallas. Doug Free, in his fourth year out of Northern Illinois, looks like he'll be a great left tackle for the Cowboys, finally getting a chance to prove himself after the Cowboys released Flozell Adams.

    Backup linemen are Phil Costa and Sam Young, both rookies.

    Igor Olshanksy, born in Ukraine, is in his seventh year out of Oregon. The former Charger is one of the better defensive ends in the game, and plays great against the run. Seventh round rookie Sean Lissemore is a backup lineman out of William & Mary. Future Hall of Fame linebacker Keith Brooking is still one of the best in the league at linebacker. The thirteenth year veteran out of Georgia Tech is playing with his first team outside of Georgia in his career, and he still has something left in the tank for this year, and maybe beyond. Rookie Sean Lee out of Penn State is a backup linebacker for right now, and may get time in nickel packages as the season goes on.

    12 of the team's 15 coaches are white.

    NUMBER OF WHITE PLAYERS ON THE 53 MAN ROSTER: 17

    NUMBER OF WHITE STARTERS: 8

    GRADE: D+

    Black fullback Deon Anderson has been released, so Gronkowski is the official starting fullback, for what its worth. Also Scott Chandler was signed making a second white tight end.

    Every little bit helps. I'll take an extra starting fullback in affirmative action league any day.

    Thanks for the hard work J Lambert...enjoy reading all of the break-down's from everybody!

    If we totaled all the players in the NFL is 18 white about average on a 53 man roster?? Which equals the D+ grade like the Cowboys....Nearly 2 to 1 black??

    Doug Free is looking like the man in Dallas. From Rotoworld:

    Coach Wade Phillips is thrilled with first-year starter Doug Free,
    saying the left tackle has been the team's best offensive lineman and
    played at a Pro Bowl level.
    <div ="s_pNewsTextMain"> Free
    has gone up against the likes of Julius Peppers and Mario Williams, yet
    he has yet to give up a sack through three games. The Cowboys thought
    that Free could do a good job, but even they admitted they didn't expect
    him to play this well.

    Is Sean Lee seeing the field on anything but special teams yet?

    Lee has been battling a hamstring injury and is expected to back up Brooking in Week 4.

    Thanks Don. I would rather see Lee eventually take Bradie James slot, it figures Lee would back up the white linebacker Brookings.

    From Rotoworld: This is a bit ridiculous



    [​IMG]

    With Cowboys FB Chris Gronkowski (groin) expected to miss Week 5, Jason Witten will see time at fullback.
    <div ="s_pNewsTextMain">
    The Pro Bowler is expected to share fullback duties with fellow tight
    end Scott Chandler as Gronkowski recovers. Witten's involvement at
    fullback isn't likely to help his fantasy owners, but he should be
    started anyways.

    Another superbly conditioned NFL player:

    An interesting note from ESPN's Calvin Watkins Monday: Felix Jones needed an IV and was puking at halftime against the Vikings Sunday. Jones wasn't sick -- he was apparently just overworked after 15 touches in the first half. Oh boy.

    Don,

    "Oh boy" says it all.

    That's where we are as far as conditioning goes. People have to get out and do roadwork to be in condition to run. The gym isn't enough. It's doesn't matter if these guys are as strong as a bull if they're not in condition.

    It's simply amazing the number of black athletes that are supposed to be among the "best" at their positions that are out of shape. Many of them have poor work ethics and after they sign a contract just don't care anymore. It's very rare to hear about white players that are out of shape and lazy. Other than Ryan Leaf I can't think of any.

    It illustrates why a talented player such as Felix Jones is not the "superstar" that he could/should be based on his physical abilities and where he was drafted. I would say that the vast majority of the players in the overrated NFL are in similar condition (or worse) than Jones.


    I might be a bit tough, but in my opinion, a highly-paid, supposedly elite NFL player should be in condition good enough to play both ways. Heck, if my KID can do it, why can't these guys last a half playing 10-20 plays? The players that I admire, and have become great, are the ones who put in the road work, and are ready to play in March if they need to.

    Typically, nearly everyone will play both ways (and special teams) in high school football. Even most "star"Â QBs (usually the best overall athlete on the team) will also play safety or cornerback on defense.

    "Big Time"Â high school football (the globalist trash routinely featured on ESPN) is similar to Division I and NFL football in that every player focuses on a single position. From my experience, most of them are as pampered and as poorly conditioned as their Division I and NFL brethren.

    In Division II football, probably 50-60% of guys play both ways.

    In the supposedly "lowly"Â Division III football, almost every player plays both ways.

    Jones of course is one of the prima donnas that the much more talented Peyton Hillis had to block for at Arkansas. While Jones was puking and getting an IV after getting 15 touches in a half, Hillis played an entire game running, receiving and blocking on a thigh so bad he could barely walk.

    Black football players are treated with kid gloves. The poor conditioning of so many of them is just one of the negative results.

    Are you talking NCAA DII and III football? Those numbers don't mesh with any small college teams I've ever seen. DIII teams have massive rosters and fill the positions accordingly.

    I was disappointed with some of Igor Olshanksy's dancing around after a couple good plays in the second half with the Cowboys trailing by a bunch. The white linemen for the Giants just pointed at the scoreboard.

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)â€"Former Dallas star Tony Dorsett is losing patience with
    Tony Romo(notes)</span> and this year's Cowboys.


    After the Hall of Fame running back prefaced his remarks Monday afternoon by
    saying "it's hard to say what I really want to say,"Â￾ Dorsett still unleashed
    some strong accusations.

    <div id="sidebar">






    </div>


    "They are a bunch of underachievers,"Â￾ he said. "On paper, they are one of
    the best teams in the league. But they are not getting it together and playing
    as a team. When it's crunch time and time to start earning their money, that's
    when they start falling apart with penalties, turnovers and mistakes."Â￾


    Dorsett spoke at a luncheon prior to the Monday night game between the
    Cowboys (1-4) and New York Giants.


    He pointed toward a lack of leadership, questioning whether Romo "wants to
    accept that role."Â￾


    If Romo doesn't, Dorsett said, "Someone needs to step up and hold somebody
    accountable."Â￾


    Charles Haleyâ€"who won three of his five Super Bowl rings with the Cowboys
    â€" also is upset with what he's seen. He said the problem was having too many
    stars on the team.


    "They think they were born stars,"Â￾ Haley said. "They think someone else
    is supposed to do the dirty work. Look at this team's roster. You can see the
    payroll of this team, and it's unbelievable."Â￾

    "On paper, they are one of the best teams in the league."
    Yep, they're loaded with afrolete talent, with one of the best sumo-laden offensive lines you can get, awesome quick-twitch guys in the secondary, yeah, they should be a HIGHLY-RATED team, according to the same folks who put out Rivals, Scout, and BSPN ratings.

    Wasn't there some mini-controversy over allowing a white fullback to score a touchdown for the 'Boys some weeks ago?

    Yes, however, they weren't quite as pathetic as Keith "Zulu Chief"Â￾ Brooking's pre-game African rituals.

    Olshansky is Jewish, so perhaps that explains his juvenile Negro imitations. I read an article once which showed a shirtless picture of Olshansky"¦he had several large "Star of David"Â￾ tattoos.

    The DWFs saved most of their booing for the offense last night when it should have been directed at the defense, especially after Romo was injured. Eli Manning and the Giants ripped off 500 yards against themon the roadin a game the Cowboys absolutelyhad to win and in which their starting QB went down. No pass rush, poor tackling, a secondary that couldn't cover, the typical symptoms of black defensive ball. Even Jon Gruden, the Caste System's arch-courtier, was finding it difficult to find flattering things to say about any of the Cowboys pathetic defensive affletes.

    The announcers never once did they credit the White-dominated (4/5 I think) OL of the Giants. It was this line which created holes for the RB to run through, it was this line which allowed Eli Manning to rip apart the Cowboys defense, it was this line which allowed the Giants to gain 500 yards on the road. The announcers were wondering in the 4th quarter "Were is Damarcus Ware? Where is ... (insert other afrolete name)?", but they never credited the Giants OL for shutting down the afroletes.
