    Apparently Brian Urlacher isn't even a top 10 linebacker in the league according to this afflete.

    <div ="hd">Wed Jun 15 09:11pm EDT
    <h2 ="title">Video: Dhani Jones disses Urlacher, rates himself rather highly</h2> By Doug Farrar</span></span>

    </div>




    There were a couple of interesting aspects to the Tuesday appearance of Cincinnati Bengals linebacker and adventure show host Dhani Jones(notes)</span>
    on the NFL Network's "Total Access" program. Jones had a lot to say
    even when he wasn't rating the NFL's 10 best linebackers â€" at one point,
    he went along with Bengals teammates Tank Johnson(notes)</span> and Pacman Jones, who have each said that disgruntled quarterback Carson Palmer(notes)</span> would be better off elsewhere.



    "I think he's had enough, I think he's ready to move on to a different situation, and it's time for him to go," Jones said.
    "He just wants a change "¦ "I think they need to bring in a vet
    quarterback that's going to replace the leadership qualities and
    capabilities that Carson had. I'm not sure Jordan [Palmer is]the
    answer."



    Jones then said that the Bengals had trouble with teamwork down the
    stretch, but that he would like to return to the team. Then, the top 10
    list.




    This won't make him very popular in Chicago â€" not only did Jones put himself (#7) above Lance Briggs(notes)</span> (#8), he omitted Brian Urlacher(notes)</span>
    from the list entirely. When Jamie Dukes asked Jones why, the bowtied
    'backer got a bit catty: "When was the last time Brian Urlacher got off a
    block?"



    Yeouch. Warren Sapp, offended that Pittsburgh's LaMarr Woodley(notes)</span> wasn't on the list either, sprayed deodorant on it, and told Jones, "Now your list don't stink anymore!"


    That bit of guerrilla theater aside, the list was pretty
    weird. Jones has had three straight 100-tackle seasons for the Bengals,
    but I'd suspect that his is the only Top 10 linebacker list on which
    he'd find himself. At least he got it right at the top; it's hard to
    argue with Patrick Willis(notes)</span> at #1.

    Urlacher had a great comeback season from injury in 2010. In 2009 he broke his wrist in the first game and missed the rest of the season. He was all over the field last season making plays and tackles. He's better than Lance Briggs, who is admittedly an excellent linebacker, and way way way way better than journeyman Dhani Jones. In his ten year career, the most tackles Jones has had is 93, while Urlacher has had under 116 tackles only once in a full season over his ten year career.

    Jones only started the past two seasons because the Bengals '09 first round draft pick, Rey Maualuga, has been a bust to the point that he can't even beat out Jones for the starting middle linebacker job. By contrast, Maualuga's fellow startingUSC linebackers, Clay Matthews and Brian Cushing, became instant NFL stars. But Jones is a "world traveler" and media darling, and no one will call him on that crap, especially on the NFL Network. I watched that particular segment, and was overcome by the "diversity" shown -- Jones, Jamie Dukes, perpetually mumbling Warren Sapp, and Fran Charles. Arace that represents 1/8 of the population -- and iseasily the least literate and articulate group in U.S. society -- gets one hundred percent of the broadcasting jobs, including Sapp, who can barely speak English. That's diversity, Orwellian and Cultural Marxist style.Edited by: Don Wassall

    The NFL Network certainly features a racially dissimilar crew of anchors and analysts"¦.Charles Davis, Jamie Dukes, Warren Sapp, Rod Woodson, Fran Charles, Terrell Davis, Marshall Faulk, Derrin Horton, Michael Irvin, Deon Sanders, Sterling Sharpe, and Solomon Wilcots are all regularly featured.

    Of the "1990's and 2000's Era"Â former players listed above, only Sterling Sharpe has resisted engaging in the constant displays of caste-encouraged "Black Power"Â routinely demonstrated by the other unqualified, incompetent, unknowledgeable, scatter-brained, mumbling black nimrods.

    Solomon Wilcots (an older former player) is coherent, organized, professional, and racially unbiased. Wilcots is the only remotely fair underling (white, black, Jew, etc) currently employed by NFL Network, Inc.

    Personally, I find NFL Network's white and Jewish employees to be far more objectionable than their dark counterparts. Brian Baldinger, Tom Waddle, Rich Eisen, Michael Lombardi, Steve Mariucci, Joe Theissmann, Jim Mora, etc., are all renowned anti-white, Casteon-rodents.

    In my opinion, Waddle, Sanders, Irvin, and Lombardi are the most white-denigrating Afro-Centrics of all.Edited by: Thrashen

    I agree with youranalysis, Thrashen. Wilcots seems to try his best to be objective, and Sharpe is pretty good also (surprising given that he refused to talk to the media during his playing days). There's not a single Whiteon-air "talent"on the NFL Network who isn't methodically pro-Caste.

    Surprise, surprise -- not.

    Felony charges against free agent Garrett Wolfe of grand theft and resisting an officer with violence have been downgraded to misdemeanor. The state attorney's office announced "no action" in Wolfe's case, which essentially drops the felony charges. The one-count misdemeanor charge is expected to be resolved in 30-60 days. Wolfe's record was clean prior to his arrest in May. The special teams ace's future with the Bears is up in the air.

    The Bears screwed Mike Hass over and he was an elite talent, definitely better than Sanzenbacher. That give Dane very little chance of ever seeing the field on this affirmative action squad.

    Eric Peterman at WR and Jake Sharp at RB too. And they have that criminally inclined Garrett Wolfe on their squad for a few years now. He is NEVER given carries in games, but always makes the roster again each year, supposedly b/c he's a special teams ace. Meanwhile Sharp and Beaver sit home. This team is right up there with the Steelers for racism. :thumbdown:

    What were his options? At least if he signs and gets some PT he may convince a less racist team of signing him.

    "Dan Dierking!"

    Yes, he's this year's "white RB training camp fodder" (for Hatie and his Black Bears). Don't get too excited. :wink:

    Here's the teaser for an article on a subscription-only Bears site. Andy Fantuz has two possible positives going for him: Mike Martz; and possibly Hatie Smith, who after screwing over one White WR (and RB) after another, may actually feel enough pressure to give one a chance, especially with the number of White WRs in the league clearly growing the past couple of years and with the Bears annually having a crappy group of wide receivers.

    And the addition of Roy Williams -- give me a break, perhaps one of the most over-rated receivers in NFL history when one compares his hype coming out of Texas and the many years he's been given to produce in the league to his actual production. Fantuz right this moment is a better NFL receiver than Roy Williams.

    -Lining up with the second team, WR Andy Fantuz looked outstanding. He runs great routes, gets low in his breaks and has hands of glue. ...

    Great news IF Fantuz makes the Bears. That would mean that Dane Sanzenbacher would probably have to catch on with another team. Even if both can make the Bears 53 man roster, Dane would be better off on another team if another team is interested. Cutler has experience working with Earl Bennett at Vandy and Bennett is expected to play some Flanker and also get lots of reps in the slot. Sanzenbacher would mostly be looked at by the Bears as a slot target IMHO (IMHO Dane is slightly above EB as far as slot ability, but I don't think Hatey has a fair bone in his body). No way Hatie will play 2 white WRs in a season game at once- I'd have to see it to believe it.:smokin:

    Heck...I just looked at the Bears' WR depth this training camp and after Devin Hester (still inconsistent as a WR- although a brilliant return man), solid #2 WR Roy Williams, speedy- but not spectacular Johnny Knox and "slot man" Earl Bennett they don't have much of anybody. I wonder what happened to the perpetual paltry Rashied Davis and if he will be resigned...Aromashadu? (I hope not). Come Hell or high water, maybe Hatie will be forced by pressure from media, fans, Martz and the Angelo- to keep both Fantuz and Sanzenbacher.

    Gotta disagree with you on Roy Williams. If he was a "solid number two" he would still be in Dallas. There's nothing solid at all about his NFL production other than one big year with the Lions. He's been 80 percent hype, 20 percent production. . .

    That's what I was remembering. He had over 1,300 yards that year in Detroit. I just checked: since his first 4 years in the league he hasn't shown much with all the opportunities he's been given. I wonder if bad chemistry with Dallas' QBs was the problem, plus last year's rookie Dez Bryant is quite talented. Of course Miles Austin continues to show many stretches of brilliance with some inconsistency mixed in as well.

    If Williams keeps playing like he did in Dallas than he is more like a #4 WR. How are his hands Don? Does he have lots of drops?

    For a player who was drafted with the 7th overall pick, Williams is a mild bust. Any white receiver drafted that early would be long gone by now if he had the production of Williams. Matt Jones is just one example even though he was showing tons of potential.

    Williams is a bum who has vastly overachieved! He couldn't have chosen a better place to go to end his lackluster career. Wide receivers go to Chicago to die out. White Wide receivers go to Chicago and in the process are fased out of football!

    With Hatie Smiff Dane sure has his work cut out for him.
    Undrafted WR Dane Sanzenbacher is "catching eyes" at Bears' training camp.

    Sanzenbacher has apparently earned some first-team reps in the slot, and has "caught the attention of some of the veterans." Earl Bennett is hardly a dynamo in the slot, but with the Bears already essentially having their top five receiver spots sewn up, Sanzenbacher is still facing long odds of making the team.

    Among the few things one can count on -- death, taxes, and the annually awful Chicago Bears offensive line not having more than one White man starting on it.

    Position coach Mike Tice declared the Bears' starting offensive line after practice Sunday night, and Gabe Carimi is the right tackle. From the left, the front five is LT J'Marcus Webb, LG Chris Williams, C Roberto Garza, RG Lance Louis, and RT Carimi. Tice allowed that these are the starters, "unless they falter." Perhaps the biggest surprise is that Chris Spencer was not included after signing a contract paying him $3 million a year. Louis lost his starting job after the first month of last season for awful pass protection. Tice is banking that he'll improve.

    Lol oh i think that O-Line will "falter". In the meanwhile Cutler will be the scapegoat instead of the sumos who are supposed to protect him!

    This is pretty much the story every year their sumo-ridden line falters. The Chicago DWFs are among the most hateful toward their White QBs.

    Andy Fantuz isn't among the eight receivers listed on the Bears' first depth chart. Looks like it's back to the CFL for him. Better to return there and be a star than be tortured as a kicked-around scrub who alternates between the practice squad and periodically being cut.

    Dane Sanzenbacher is listed as one of the two third-stringers, so looks like he has a decent chance of bouncing around between the practice squad and being the team's sixth receiver.

    Hopefully, this blurb from Rotoworld is accurate, and Dane continues to gain on Bennett. Yeah, it's caste speak, but it's good news.

    A "gamer," that's fairly original.

    Guess that means black players aren't; it's one of those terms that's insulting toward both races.

    It looks as if Vernon Gholston will easily be the biggest bust in the NFL of the past 10 years or so. He's been given plenty of opportunities, and most likely will be given another five years, yet he still can't show anything.

    Bears DE Vernon Gholston "hasn’t shown a lot" in training camp.



    He was similarly invisible in the Bears' preseason opener on Saturday. The epic 2008 draft bust will get a few more chances to prove himself at defensive end in the Bears' 4-3 defense, but the odds he makes the roster are low.
