    White Dominated Defense

    After 11 games, the Houston Texans have 35 sacks. Out of that total, 23 or 66% (2/3) of the team sacks, have come from White players. Connor Barwin (8.5), Brooks Reed (6), J.J. Watt (4.5), Brian Cushing (3) & Shaun Cody (1) make up, what is an amazing total in the modern caste NFL. Since Mario Williams' injury, it has been a virtual White-out in the sacks department on a week to week basis.

    Almost all media coverage of the Texans defense starts off with an announcer declaring in starry-eyed wonder, "And they're doing it without Mario Williams." Rookie Brooks Reed is easily out-producing what Williams was doing before he got hurt. Houston's is the most enjoyable defense for me to watch in a long time.

    If the Rams had a good offense, instead of loading up on lousy sumos on the line and going through an unbelievably long line of mediocre receivers who keep getting hurt even more often than do their cornerbacks, they also would have one of the best defenses in the league, but they are forced to stay on the field too long because of the poor offense. Losing Amendola was a big blow, and their highly drafted black rookie TE who looked good in preseason games has been a bust.

    It's now confirmed that Leinart is done for the season. Hopefully Yates can be good enough for the Texans to make a run in the playoffs.

    The Texans have confirmed that Matt Leinart's injury is a broken collarbone, and that he will undergo season-ending surgery.



    Coach Gary Kubiak said Leinart should go under-the-knife some time in the next week. The news at least temporarily begins the T.J. Yates era in Houston, though Kubiak confirmed the Texans will sign another veteran to back up Yates and Kellen Clemens. Sage Rosenfels, who is still under contract with the Dolphins, is the most likely candidate. Yates should start in Week 13 after keeping his head above water in yesterday's win, but there are likely no guarantees beyond this week. Yates is not a fantasy option in two-QB leagues.

    Tebow will end up in Huston next year.
    I can see it now. What a dream that would be for us here. Then they can trade for Kris Durham, sign Jake Sharp, and trade for Even More. Now i'm dreaming again. :pray2:

    The Texans became the latest team to cut Derrick Mason, and according to the NFL Network they are calling up Jeff Maehle from the PS to take his place.

    If Maehl in fact gets the call that at least partially makes up for Briesel going down for at least a few weeks.

    Nice to see that Maehl might get the nod. Can't wait to see this defense go up against SCAM this weekend.

    I was going to make a post last night about the possibility of Maehl being called up. Unfortunately the Texans just signed Jacoby Jones to a contract. (Jones got $10.5 million for 3 years. Almost comparable to Jordy Nelsons $13.3 for 3 years.)

    Jones has been on the Texans' roster for a long time. He wasn't just added to the 53 man roster.

    Jeff is getting his chance. His proud parents are flying to Houston to watch his debut:


    Sometime today it's expected that former Paradise High School football star, Jeff Maehl, will be promoted to the Houston Texans' 53-man roster. According to his father Steven, his son met with Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, who told he was moving up from the club's practice squad.

    The Texans play host to Cam Newton and Carolina Panthers at 10 a.m. Sunday. On Monday, the team waived veteran wide receiver Derrick Mason who only caught six passes for 55 yards this year.

    Maehl will be the team's fourth receiver and is expected to help out with special teams.

    In a press conference Monday, Kubiak said that the team needed help at special teams and that's why Mason was released.

    "I talked to him yesterday," Steve Maehl said. "He met with Kubiak he said they were bumping him up. He is really excited."

    Maehl's mom, Lucy, will be in Houston to this weekend to see her son's debut. Steve said it was pre-planned trip.

    "But it will be a better trip now," he said. "He will be in uniform and hopefully he will catch a ball or two."

    Steve said his son has been working hard all year for this.

    "I know they like him," he said. "Or he would have been gone a long time ago.".

    After looking at the Texan's website, right now, they have 12 white starters, and an amazing 26 white players on their 53-man roster right now! That's one short of a majority!:biggrin:

    Tomorrow's game vs Carolina might be the caste game of the year - a defense stocked with young talented white players vs the MSM's next great black quotaback hope. I hope newton gets destroyed.

    I have nothing against Matt Shaub, but I REALLY hope he follows in the footsteps of Trent Green (1999) and Drew Bledsoe, who lost their jobs due to a season ending injury and never got it back because a "no-name scrub", despised by the DWF's took their place and won the Super Bowl.

    Actually, the kid in Houston has a better shot, as he's taken over a first place team. Green and Bledsoe were injured on mediocre teams and no one expected anything out their replacements, who will be in the PF Hall of Fame.

    Also, don't forget, the gay sheep we know as the DWF's were livid with Bill B. because they wanted a "young/super athletic" QB from Kansas State (Micheal Bishop) not a slow footed 6th rounder from Michigan to replace Bledsoe. Remember how Brent Musberger used to wax poetic about the great Bishop on ABC, when he was at KSU? How did such a great (1st round) talent last 7 rounds, the DWF's wondered? How did he fail in the CFL, after he left the NFL?

    I think Yates has a good shot at being a successful starter. Depending on how he performs he might have a shot at the starting job. He had to put up with all of Uncle Butch's corrupt doings at UNC and still performed quite well.

    It would be great if Schaub got "recycled" like Green and Bledsoe and gave another team a competent good white QB.

    Jack, thanks for posting those numbers about Houston. I'm glad they are as White as they are and I hope they, and other teams, will soon follow in once again allowing a majority White roster, and a starting 22 that is at least half White. Keep hope alive!

    Remember, that Yates was also booed at a Tar Heel's basketball game when they showed him on the big screen. So he's been hated for awhile. It would be nice to see him succeed.

    I'll give Texans GM Rick Smith (black) credit for not being as rabidly pro black as most GMS in the league (although he still operates with the typical NFL affirmative action/ quotas mantra to some degree). His drafting/ signing white ballers like Kevin Walter, Jeff Maehl, James Casey, J.J Watt, Connor Barwin, Brooks Reed and Brian Cushing along with drafting/signing talented black players like Arian Foster, Ben Tate, Andre Johnson, Mario Williams, DeMeco Ryans, Johnathan Joseph has paid off. It would be nice if the Texans or one of the few other fairer teams in the league would bring in Cory McCaffrey/ Joe Martinek this draft year to compete for a starting job as a scatback/ Powerback- H-back (in the case of the Texans it would probably be for depth at first, with how well the rushing attack is going currently).

    The Texans look like what a lot of teams looked like in the 1980's. Whites more evenly balanced throughout the field, on offense and defense, but blacks still dominant in the running back position, but white contributors as WR and tight end.

    Here's a priceless example of the NFL's Caste System at work. Undersized and slow, yet was drafted in the second round in 2011 at a position Whites have been forbidden to play. From Weenieworld:

    Texans CB Brandon Harris struggled to get on the field as a rookie due to a "lack of speed." Harris had no role in Houston's secondary, and coaches felt he didn't run downfield fast enough to contribute on kick and punt coverage. Undersized with a 4.53 forty time, Harris probably won't be viewed as future starter by the Texans. He may get a chance to play behind Johnathan Joseph, Kareem Jackson, and nickel back Brice McCain in 2012, replacing free agent Jason Allen.

    Connor Barwin and Brooks Reed showed more than enough this season.
