    The good news is that Kolb's competition is White as QB is an all-White position on a roster filled with blacks, as has been the tradition ever since the franchise moved to Phoenix from St. Louis after the 1987 season.

    Arizona Cardinals fans booed QB Kevin Kolb during their 'Fan Fest 2012' Wednesday, June 13.

    Looks like Michael Floyd will be another huge black bust.

    It appears as though Michael Floyd may not open up as Arizona's starter across from Larry Fitzgerald in Week 1. Multiple reports cite that he's had work ethic-related issues, and that he's expected to be the fourth receiver when training camp commences.

    The Cardinals are quietly whitening up their O-line. First they signed Synder from the 49ers for a third starting white O-lineman. Now, with the signing of Mcquistan this morning it looks like they have three white backups on the O-line, and two of them are tackles, which used to be stocked full of sumos. Still waiting to see if Bradley can reintegrate the all black starting 11 on D.

    The Cardinals have two of the worst offensive tackles in the league. They're especially bad at pass protection.

    In the 2012 draft they drafted Nate Potter from Boise State. Potter did a good job protecting Kellen Moore's blind side during his college career. He is said to have played well in training camp.

    The Cardinals' tackles are so bad they should be looking for alternatives. They should give Potter a shot. Maybe he succeeds or maybe he doesn't but he can't be worse than what the Cardinals have now.

    The Cardinals two current starters are black. Maybe that's why the Cardinals won't give Potter a chance. Potter is white.

    Extra Point, I've been watching this situation too. I heard on BSPN of all things, the stat about how bad the Cards tackles have been. Potter was talked about toward the end of pre season as being in the mix as a potential starter, but I haven't found any articles about him of late.

    The Cardinals have had terrible ownership -- the Bidwell family -- dating back to their days in St. Louis. For about a decade now, they've also had a black GM who doesn't seem to have much need for whites. Matter of fact, several years ago (during the Dennis Green era) they not only had an entire draft class that was black (at least 6 or 7 picks), their undrafted rookies were also all black -- that was at least 12 to 15 players.

    My guess is their GM will not allow much more than 3 to 5 white starters at once. And the few whites he allows all have to come at whitey friendly slots -- QB, OC/C, TE, Blocking fullback. Which is not bad, considering they only had 1 or 2 white starters at times in the last decade. Think about it, when is the last time the Cardinals had a "entrenched starter" at WR? When is the last time they had a "entrenched starter" on defense at any position? Might have to go back at least a decade, to a young Kyle Vanden Bosch and the safety from ASU that was murdered by friendly fire while defending Israel, in our current Neo-con war.

    I know Arizona has a significant Mexican population, but the number of blacks in the state has be fairly small -- perhaps less than 5% of the population? Even with that, I think their black supremacist GM knows that as long as he has a white quarterback, enough retarded crackers will come up and support the team in a nice, new stadium. Even in a state that's supposed be a bastion of conservatism and is even deemed "racist" by CNBC types because their female governor wants to rid the illegals, who are in the state "illegally".

    Overall, the Cards have been terrible during this GM's tenure. But because they played in the Super Bowl in January of 2009 , I pretty much think he's "untouchable" -- absolutely can't be fired.

    The Cardinals have consistently been one of the blackest teams ever since moving to Arizona. More consistently than any other franchise in fact, and they've also consistently been one of the worst teams in the league over that same time frame.

    Not sure when the Bidwells bought the team, but in the 1960s and into the '70s the St. Louis Cardinals were one of the Whitest NFL teams, and they also had a reputation of having White players that allegedly kept black players on the team "in their place" through verbal intimidation and other methods.

    In an encouraging move today, the Cards activated Zach Nash from the PS, as a d-lineman, giving them a whopping two white players on D.

    I was surprised nobody mentioned, 2nd year tight end, Rob Housler's career best game on Sunday. Then again the Cardinals are such a putrid team I can understand the lack of interest in their game. Anyway, he had 8 catches on 11 targets for 82 yards.

    Todd Heap is the starter but he's been injured most of the season. His body is breaking down on him which is a shame. That's good for Housler however and there is no reason to think he can't emerge as another great, White, pass-catching tight end.

    I first became aware of Rob Housler after watching him have a big game while playing for Florida Atlantic. He looked a little “off” in the face, but I assumed he was a white player who only became tan due to the Florida weather. After all, I’ve known Pennsylvania Germans with the last name “Häusler.” After he was drafted relatively high by Arizona (3[SUP]rd[/SUP] round), I decided to look him up. Considering his tanned skin, his asphalt-black bug eyes, and his Mestizo-Asiatic “boxy” skull structure and hair texture, he doesn’t appear to be fully white…

    To me, he resembles one of those new-age creatures infesting California. You know, that revolting “mystery meat” of Polynesian, Asian, Mexican, and sometimes white.

    Housler grew up in Texas (or at least went to high school in that state), so maybe he has a Mexican mother. I think he's generally regarded as White and a quick search on his background didn't reveal anything as far as being mixed.

    Housler's biggest hurdle to becoming a star is the Cardinals offense. It's a lot like that of the Steelers in that the tight end is never a featured pass catching target. It's been frustrating to see Heath Miller and before him Mark Bruener be underused every season and that's the way it is with Cardinals tight ends as well.

    Whenever a white-looking person has jet-black eyes (not to be confused with brown), I immediately question their “whiteness.â€￾ I had similar concerns with Steve Gregory during his days as a cornerback at Syracuse. Despite his last name, which I believe is English, Gregory is “Mediterranean Whiteâ€￾ in appearance. I personally believe that Housler is mixed with some Asian derivative (Polynesian, Mestizo, Amerindian, etc). I find Housler to be even “less whiteâ€￾ than Sam “Featherheadâ€￾ Bradford. Bradford has lighter eyes (only by default, as every color is lighter than black), has non-black hair, and has more European facial/skull characteristics than Housler...

    Of course, while in uniform on the football field, Housler comes close to “passing the eye test.â€￾ I'd much prefer the success of veteran Todd Heap!

    On a side note, how could a star football player that made it to the NFL have such an ugly woman? I mean, unless that's his sister or something, boggles the mind...

    Nate Potter has finally been given a shot. The Cardinals probably didn't want to start a white player but Potter's predecessor at left tackle was so bad they were forced to do it.

    Potter has played fairly well for a rookie and was an immediate upgrade at left tackle.

    Potter was drafted in the 7th round. If he was black he would've been drafted much higher.

    NFL GMs should take note of this and improve their teams by giving white players more opportunities.

    I completely forgot about him. If I recall correctly, before the draft he was projected to be an early pick. Shame he went so late.

    the Cards are terrible..
    and in spite of moronic, uncommitted ownership, they used to be one of the underdogs I always had love for, but this free-fall seems to have no end in sight..

    time to track down & un-retire Neil Lomax, they need help in the desert.
