    Didn't you know, only white guys need blocking to run. If Jacobs were white the first thing that would have been said was "look at that huge hole he had to run through" Well if he was white he probably wouldn't be playing tailback.

    A white player with the same athleticism and size of Brandon Jacobs would most likely have been moved to tight end in the NFL. Jacobs is about 6'4 260lbs and those dimensions fit the mold of a tight end. No white guy who is 260lbs would be allowed to run the ball in the NFL, though Mike Alstott was close to 250lbs.

    Anyone who doubts that white players are discriminated against in the NFL, especially at the running back position, needs to take a look at Jerome Bettis. This fat ass was only 5'10 and 250lbs with a big gut. He was allowed to be a featured back for years even though his career ypc average is a very average 3.9 yards per carry.

    Niceobservations about the lack of recognition of the Giants' o-line and the failure to mention the often-huge holes they created for both Bradshaw and Jacobs to run through. Though of courseas always we were told yet againabout how Chris Snee is married to Tom Coughlin's daughter. [​IMG] Who gives a flying you know what about that greatly overworked piece of trivia.

    Actually, I think it was Jon Gruden, but I heard 4 different instances during which 3 Giants OL were mentioned by name and praised for their blocking (Chris Snee twice, Sean O'Hara and Rich Seubert once each). One of Snee's blocks lead to the Manningham TD.

    Additionally, Eli Manning was repeateadly complimented (again, it was mostly coming from Gruden) for picking apart the Cowboys secondary despite having a somewhat sloppy game with all those INTs. Both Jaws and Gruden also criticized and called out the rest of the Cowboys D for not stepping up and making stops to help the offense in Romo's absence.

    From what I've seen, Gruden appears to be an equal opportunity worshipper. He's a noted caste disciple, but not afraid to praise white players without any code words. This is the complete opposite of people like Collinsworthless who reserve their biggest insults and criticism for white players exclusively.

    Yes, it is true that they showed a few individual blocks, however the unit as a whole was never praised. They put the Giants' afrolete RBs images on the screen and praised them, they put the Giants' afrolete WRs images on the screen and praised them, but they didnt put the Giants' OLs images on the screen to praise them for their very good work. I guess that when that will happen, when they will put 4 White OL on the screen and praise them, then we will know that the end of the world is very near

    Correct alln2, the unit as a whole did not get the praise it deserved. An O-line indeed functions well when all the pieces are working together and that's what the Giants line was doing last night.

    It's little surprise that some of the best O-lines in the league are majority-to-all white.

    Three offensive linemen for the Giants made the Pro Bowl last year, Snee, O'Hara, and Diehl. Hopefully these guys can make the Pro Bowl again which will get them even more respect from the media. If you ask me, the Giants have put together a very good offensive line and two of them(O'hara and Seubert) weren't even drafted.

    "Cowboys deactivated Chris Gronkowski for a missed block on Romo..."

    This is probably the beginning of the end for Gronkowski in Dallas. He'll be the whipping boy for the season crumbling from here on out, instead of the underachieving, big-money making blacks on the team.

    Phillips gets the boot.

    CBS 11 in Dallas reports that the Cowboys have fired head coach Wade Phillips.

    Former NFL quarterback Jason Garrett takes over as coach.

    Affletes "quit" on him.

    That's something that White athletes would never do, especially if they are making millions of dollars. The black "Cowboys" don't give a lick about the Dallas "fans" - and the Dallas fans need to start realizing that.

    Phillips had been a dead man walking all season. Now, if only Jerry Jones would fire most of the players and construct a team that looks more like the one that kicked his pathetic bunch of losersall over the field last night.

    Hey Jerry, I hear Matt Jones is available. A cheap price at that. Where is that great business sense that made you so rich.[​IMG]

    I am glad Phillips got the hard kick in the ass. Never forget how he closed his eyes to an obvious talent in Amemdola who is now excelling with the rams, so some scrub affelet with alligator arms makes the team. And Danny is cut in search of another team.

    Jerry Jones while a very successful businessman, is still a DWF intellectually in terms of player personnel decisions. I'LL never forget him calling Amendola a "boy" he would never describe one of his affelets as boy. I guess next Saturday he has a great night to look forward to. Pacaquiao vs Margarito. Some are saying it will have a live gate of over 60 K.

    I hope LB Sean Lee gets more playing time out of this move.

    Cowboys exuded mental weakness all year. Jerry Jones is part of the problem really. Self hype and delusions. Cowboys will always try to recreate the Jimmy Johnson days of the 90s.
    So don't count on Jerry Jones becoming some sort of Caste buster anytime soon.
    They will need to do a foundation level house cleaning, yet Dallas fans are some of the most notorious Castophiles you'll see.

    Ironically during the 70s and into the 80s, Landry fielded a relatively White friendly squad.

    As far as good old Wade is concerned, he truly looked lost and was too much of a 'player's coach' ..letting the inmates run the asylum and deferring to team "leaders".
    Hip Hop mentality blacks need a strong dominant figure who won't take their garbage - basically a father figure disciplinarian that will tell them what to do. Most did not have this growing up and the hip hop bling bling culture denigrates healthy home life as well. So even many blackies and whiggers fake the street hoodlum culture too. You know, they want to show what an old G they are. LOL[​IMG]

    Actually black journalist Jason Whitlock writes about this ongoing problem and black dysfunction in some of his articles.
    Bottom line: if they continue to go the strict Caste route, they will suck as they do now.
    Perhaps modeling a squad on New England or Green Bay would help them see the light, as you stated Don.

    Jerry Jones won't likely do this however.
    Dallas fans loves their great superior black affletes.

    Marcus Spears is reportedly out for 4-6 weeks with a calf injury:

    2.37 tackles per game... "no wonder" White men aren't allowed to play D-line.


    Anthony Spencer, who gets quite a bit of praise when I watch Cowboys' games, has rather paltry production:

    My Dad wasn't a Cowboys "fan", but he liked & respected Tom Landry. Dad hated Jerry Jones for firing the legendary Landry & still thinks Jones to be a meglomaniac.

    Just noticed that Jason Witten leads all White receivers with 506 receiving yards through 8 games. Looking at Witten's stats, he's building a Hall of Fame resume, with amazing production, consistency and durability. Because he's not flashy, its easy to overlook what the guy does. Of note, he's in his 8th season and has only missed one game. He has two 1000 yard seasons, 2 900+ yard seasons and 3 750+ yard seasons. With 568 career receptions, he's only fumbled 4 times. He is only 28 years old and is in the top ten of all time tight end receptions and yards.

    He can't miss making the Hall of Fame the first year he's eligible, barring some premature career ending injury.

    BTW,your post isworth posting also in the Witten thread for those who cometo Caste Footballlooking specifically for info on Jason.Edited by: Don Wassall

    A complete tight end, yet "slow" by NFL standards. That's the way he's described despite amazing numbers year after year.

    Cowboys waived a black guy and added a DB Andrew Sendejo, out of Rice, formerly a member of Bucs and second best tackler of Sacramento UFL team.

    They probably thought, by his last name, that he was Mexican. Probably trying to bolster their image with the Latino market!

    In just his third season, Felix Jones has slowed down noticeably. He was drafted in the first round almost solely because of his speed but now doesn't even have that and is regularly injured. Weenieworld attributes his slowness to gaining 8 pounds, but c'mon, a mere 8 pounds doesn't account for it. AndJones ought to be able to lose 8 pounds in 2 weeks if he wanted to, but the fact that he doesn't leads us to the real issue -- Jones has slowed down because he isn't dedicated or motivated enough to keep himself in top condition.

    I'll bet his old blocking back at Arkansas, that Hillis guy, who outweighs Jones by 35 pounds or so, can keep pace with "Felix the Cat" in a footrace these days.

    From Weenieworld: Cowboys writer Gerry Fraley believes Felix Jones' added playing weight is more of a hindrance than a help. Considering Jones has zero rushing touchdowns through 11 games, we'd have to agree. The former Razorback added eight pounds of muscle in the offseason in an effort to better sustain early down work, but Fraley notes that Felix has "lost his wiggle" and has rarely made tacklers miss. Although he's topped 51 rush yards only once this year, he makes a decent PPR flex option at Indianapolis.
