    I stopped watching the NFL after the theft of Alex Smith's starting position.
    But I still keep track of the ups and downs of a few favorite players.

    I don't give a damn about the Bears and don't care to talk about their prospects for this season, but I needed a place to put this news item and there was no other relevant thread. Someone else is welcome to use this thread to post a roster and start a discussion.

    The Bears have released their first depth chart of the 2014 season and Jordan Lynch is listed as the 6th team tailback. FYI, he's the only member of the "6th team" that the Bears have.
    They never had any intention of keeping him.

    At this time, I'd like to repost the career rushing statistics of both Lynch and Kadeem Carey, who is listed 4th on the depth chart and was drafted ahead of Lynch.

    Jordan Lynch: 4,343yards 662carries (6.6avg) 48TDs
    Kadeem Carey: 4,239yards 743carries (5.7avg) 48TDs

    The knock on Jordan Lynch was his arm strength yet his ball velocity was measured at 55 at the combine, the same as Russell Wilson and higher than EJ Manuel (54).

    Throwing at the combine and throwing in games aren't the same thing but it makes one wonder if reports about Lynch's arm strength being weak aren't exaggerated.

    Being a white player (especially at a caste position) spells certain demotion, as apparently all it takes is one good preseason game for a black player to demote the white starter, according to Rotoworld:

    Conte has been the victim of some of the nastiest scapegoating even by Caste standards.

    Conte and all other white defenders need to learn how and when to loaf. If it looks like they can't make the play, they shouldn't try. White defenders chase the ballcarrier all the way to the goal line, so the last thing the DWFs see is the white guy not quite making the play. He's a "great guy who really tries hard, but he just doesn't have the speed".

    Very good point. Whitey's "non-stop motor" and "grittiness" can and does backfire against him in various situations.

    For years I lamented the "kamikaze" style of most White receivers, who frequently endured unnecessary concussions and broken bones because of their fearless nature in catching passes over the middle and then going for every last possible inch of yardage no matter how many defenders were closing in on them or were already hitting them. Since then they've gotten smarter (likely because a White receiver is not the extreme rarity he was a decade or two ago). White defensive backs need to be smarter also, but because their position is always so tenuous other than the two established stars, Eric Weddle and Harrison Smith, it's understandable why they do what they do.

    The Bears are shifting Shea McClellin from DE to OLB. I went on a Bears forum and the DWFs are criticizing him before he's even played a single game.

    White players are attacked non-stop by the DWFs, black players - never.

    Bears announced their practice squad and Lynch was not signed to it. They really ****ed him over after talking him up so much in the preseason.

    The NFL and its supporting media outlets can't stop telling us how much the game is changing. They insist that every team is moving to a spread offense that requires a "dynamic playmaker" taking snaps.

    According to the statistics, Lynch is the greatest dual threat quarterback in the history of college football.

    Agenda exposed, Exhibit #249184.

    Unless he's a superstar like Luke Kuechly, any white player on defense - not just defensive backs - is going to be put under a microscope and thrown under the bus on the flimsiest of excuses. Our overlords are trying very hard to promote the idea of defensive positions in football being black (and Poly) "turf."

    The Bears have given up over 50 points in two consecutive games, a feat last accomplished in 1923. Their defense is bad, very bad.

    Affirmative Action defensive coordinator Mel Tucker is part of the problem. The year before he was hired by the Bears in 2013 he coached the Jaguars defense to a 29th ranking in points allowed.

    The Bears defense was one of the worst in their history in 2013 and in 2014 they're worse yet the media, for the most part, doesn't criticize Tucker much. They blame everybody but him, the GM, head coach, players etc.

    In America blacks are immune from criticism for anything. It's black privilege.

    One roster move the Bears made was to cut white safety Craig Steltz. Steltz was a decent player. If the Bears had kept Steltz instead of Ryan Mundy you wouldn't have seen big breakdowns in coverage as you did in the Bears recent blowout loss to the Packers.

    The Bears are paying for their move with bad defensive performances. Maybe they should keep players based on merit, not because they're black.

    With Jared Allen, Shea McClellen, and Chris Conte, the Bears have more white defensive starters than every NFL team accept for Houston, who has 4. They are tied with San Diego, San Francisco, and Minnesota, who all have 3.

    The Bears’ white starters have all been solid. Conte has been the best, with 31 tackles and 2 INTs. Allen has been average with 32 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 1 PD. McClellen, who has only played in 5 games, has 19 tackles and 1 sack. Overall, this is the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] “whitestâ€￾ defense in the NFL and a unit I could root for.

    The offense, on the other hand, features 2 white starters, Cutler and OT Kyle Long.

    Bears defense is bad and I agree Mel Tucker should be getting roasted!! But that all sumo/Mexican oline isn't cutting it. Especially when you have Cutler back there. The guy is already known to throw ints doesn't help when he's uner pressure constantly. Conte has played well since he was ridiculed after 1 poor tackle.

    I dont know the name of the show, but I saw Mark Brunell, and some guy I didnt recognize talking about the Bears getting blown out. The guy asked Mark Brunell whats was the bears problem. Brunell responded "Theres a problem on both sides of the ball. On offense its Cutler, and on defense its Allen. imean WHERE HAS THIS GUY BEEN ALL YEAR?!?"

    So according to them the bears would be fine if they got rid of Allen, and Cutler. Those two White men are just holding this team back.

    Brunnell has sure learned quick the correct caste speak. Bummer because I liked him in his playing days.
