    Yet I am surprised that they are considering cutting E.J. Manuel. Smith will be a starter because of the new black head coach they have. Screw the Jets.

    Buffalo's one of the teams that should have taken a quarterback in the draft but they didn't. The only quarterbacks after the first round that were highly rated were white and I don't think the Bills's black GM wants to draft or sign white players. Winning is secondary.

    It's highly unlikely they cut Manuel. What black quarterback would they replace him with?

    Manuel is not the long term answer in Buffalo. Whaley has to be fired and a new GM who is not as racist or a black supremacist will need to be brought into Buffalo for the QB position to be rescued. I also find it hilarious that some DWFs think Tyrod Taylor is a starting QB. I feel Buffalo has become Pittsburgh's little brother in terms of rust belt DWFs.

    I saw a car in the grocery store parking lot today that had a front license plate that read "#1 Steelers Fan." I had to laugh to myself wondering what the DWF who owns the car must be like if he had to actually earn that title over the legions of Steelers DWFs whose entire life revolves around the Rooney Plantation.

    As time has gone on and I have become further and further removed from NFL DWFandom - the blind faith/devotion/time invested in a bunch of Amerika 2.0's chosen race playing a childs game, it's such a joke and it's pathetic how much the typical DWFs life revolves around some arbitrary collection of affletes playing for "their" team can impact an individuals emotions and overall quality of life. It truly is beyond pathetic.

    I think a good portion of it is because people have little in common anymore. When you are in situations where you are with acquaintances or people you just met or are engaging in chit-chat with random strangers, the only "safe" things to talk about are the weather and the local sports teams.

    People don't dare talk about, say, how the country is going to hell, even though a large portion of Americans feel that way. We've become like the old USSR and other communist/totalitarian countries, where the truth is only mentioned in whispers among trusted friends.

    That is definitely unusual. Let's hope this trend doesn't continue in future drafts.

    Hopefully, the numbers of whites will be increasing in both the NFL and NBA drafts.

    Utah safety Brian Blechen was signed by Carolina as a UDFA. Apparently Carolina wants to look at the 226 pound Blechen as a weak side linebacker.

    Blechen was productive during his career at Utah but did not do well at his pro day.

    Blechen had 264 tackles, 16 TFL, 9 interceptions and 7 forced fumbled during his career as a strong safety at Utah.

    Carolina blew their 1st round pick on Shaq Thompson - a tweener LB/S with no true position. Sounds like they are doing the same to Blechen, perhaps as an insurance policy.

    Carolina did the same thing in the 2nd round blowing a pick on Funchess who was to big and and slow to be a WR but not big or strong enough to be a tight end. Should be fun to watch these two picks have mediocre careers.

    Carolina did not draft smartly. Carolina already has a good linebacking corps led by Luke Kuechly. They could have drafted an underrated player such as Jake Ryan or Ben Heeney in the mid rounds if they wanted to bolster depth or plan for the future. And why take Thompson, who isn't very athletic, so high?

    Last year they drafted a big wide receiver in the first round. Why trade up in the second round this year to get another one when you have other needs?

    What Carolina should have done is bolstered their offensive line.

    I would have taken T Jake Fisher in round 1. In round 2 I would not have traded up but would have taken G Ali Marpet. You then would have two athletic, long term starters for your offensive line.

    Todd Gurley was the first running back drafted, number 10 overall. Zach Zenner went undrafted.

    Gurley has a history of getting injured a lot. Zenner is very durable.

    If Zenner is ever given a fair chance he may prove to be a better NFL player than Gurley because Gurley is likely to be plagued by injuries in the pros.

    Unfortunately it's unlikely that Zenner will ever get anything resembling a fair chance. NFL teams don't play white running backs because of their race.

    If any lurkers think I'm exaggerating things and that Zenner in no way can compare to Gurley, I would say I'm not saying Gurley isn't a good running back when he's on the field, I'm saying there's a good chance he will be injured all the time.

    Add to that the fact that Zenner is extremely underrated and you can see my point is reasonable, if I'm right about Zenner being extremely underrated.

    IMO Zenner should have been drafted in the 1st or 2nd round based on merit. If anyone thinks I'm being far too optimistic about Zenner I suggest you check out Zenner's tape, his production and his measurables and draw your own conclusions. You'll see what I'm talking about.

    Then ask yourself why wasn't this player drafted?

    I will say that Zenner's talent is respected by hard-core fantasy football followers. His current ADP (average draft position) in all-position rookie drafts so far is 62nd, not bad at all for an undrafted RB. In a league I'm in, he was just taken at 4.05, 47th overall. I had hoped to snag him in the 6th round.

    With Joique Bell plagued by knee problems and already 28, getting older for a running back, and early 2015 draft pick Ameer Abdullah more suited for a third down role due to his small size, Zenner has a slight chance of being given an opportunity by the Lions out of necessity.

    Probably some people think I'm way over the top about Zach Zenner, saying he was a 1st or 2nd round talent and suggesting he might have a better pro career than Todd Gurley. Some may think at best he should have gone in the 5th or 6th round.

    All I can say is I try to do my own analysis of players based on what information I can find on them and what video I can find. My analysis says that Zenner has the potential to be a quality starting running back in the NFL. I stand by my opinion even if it seems way out there.

    Think of Alfred Morris. Zenner could have a similar career if given a fair chance, which is a big if.

    Here is a pretty good article about Zenner's chances in Detroit. It calls out some key components of the caste system. Not a bad read as the author (who appears to be black) seems to be fully supportive of Zach.

    http://detroitsportsnation.com/detr...-detroit-lions-next-great-running-back/36493/


    "My focus is on doing anything and everything I can to make the team that did sign me happy with its choice, so I hope the Lions are ready, because I see myself contributing for a long time to come."
    These solid and direct words came from the Fox sports post-draft diary of Detroit Lions undrafted rookie running back Zach Zenner.


    As fog settled over the 2015 NFL draft, I sat idly by as players that weren't drafted began to sign with different teams around the league. I have always been just as fascinated with the unofficial 8th, 9th and 10th rounds of the draft as much as the official seven before that. This is where the good general managers truly run away from the pack. Finding diamonds in the rough like a seasoned miner with an eye for sparkle. Like any lifelong NFL crazy, I like to play the part of talent scout and seek out these precious hidden stones. One player I had a sharp eye on since his junior season (I watched the September 21, 2013 game in which he torched Nebraska for 200 yards and 2 TD's) was a shifty, athletic, little-known phenom from the mid-sized South Dakota State University in the prairies of the Great Plains.
    Zach Zenner grew up in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area where he made a name for himself while starring for the Eagan High School Wildcats on his way to becoming a finalist his senior season for Mr. Football in the state of Minnesota. It's not entirely known why (probably for similar reasons he fell in this year's draft), but he wasn't heavily recruited as a prep and ended up signing with the SDSU Jackrabbits out of high school. The rest of his collegiate story is stuff of legend. During times when rushing for over 2,000 yards one time is an extraordinary accomplishment on it's own, Zenner went on to do it in his final three seasons in the NCAA FCS - the only player to ever conquer such a feat. Some draft experts had him being drafted as early as the 4th-5th rounds but he was passed on 256 times and a deal was struck post-draft with the Detroit Lions.

    Now, in the mind of a passive and "intelligent" NFL fan the story of Zenner ends sooner rather than later. Naysayers have mentioned his stiff hips and lack of acceleration. They will speak of his one-gear speed and small-school origination. Finally, as much as many people like to refuse to admit, his status as a white player playing a black dominant position has at least a small part in many not seeing him evolving into a big time professional halfback in the NFL (running back and cornerback are probably the least diverse positions in the league).


    However, call it a epiphany if you will but I have a good, if not great feeling about the prospect of Zenner in this league. I happen to judge two major factors in this reasoning considerably higher than other analysts. Production and mental fortitude. With two minor components being durability and athleticism. I apologize to standard thinking but I don't have it in me to ignore 6,078 rushing yards and 58 touchdowns in three seasons of football. Those type of stats spell out F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L P-L-A-Y-E-R. His intelligence also has a unwavering affect on my opinion. He majored in biology in college and has aspirations to become a surgeon if his NFL dreams don't pan out. The fact that he is keeping medical school in hindsight while not giving up on the sport he loves is a testament to his maturity and is actually a rare reality in most young player's lives. He played in all 52 games in his South Dakota State Jackrabbit career and had an amazing track record of taking care of the football (fumbled only once his senior season). In a sports culture where every white player not named Justin James Watt is seen as lacking athleticism (see Can't Jump, White Man), Zenner low-key posted the seventh-best pSPARQ score (the method in which Nike training measures athleticism in pro prospects) among draft eligible running backs. So the guy has the goods.

    We all know (full well) that Zenner was shafted & continually (intentionally) disrespected & disregarded SOLELY because he's White. To that I say...to hell with the NFL! I know it's a pipe dream, but I'd LOVE to see the crooked, caste, cultmarx NFL fold like a bad poker hand.

    The question is when will the DWFs wake up and become aware of the NFL's anti-white racism and the agenda to ethnically cleanse white men from football?

    When it comes to the RB position, maybe never. I'm still waiting for the best RB on the Bengals, Rex Burkhead, to get a shot. He also played wildcat QB at Nebraska. In addition to the racial profiling, a coach might "lose" the team if he plays a white in "our pozishun". Also, a white has no margin for error, which is impossible at RB.

    This thread now has over 200,000 views, which is far more than the 2014 draft thread. 200,000 is a lot of views.

    Leonardfan's quote was posted on May, 3, the day after the draft. Since then there have been over 135,000 views.

    I believe the black supremacist nature of the 2015 draft is the reason there is so much interest in what this site has to say, as indicated by the large number of views on this thread.

    There was only one white man drafted in the first round and only forty white men were drafted in the entire draft. That's an example of the anti-white racism that is prevalent in the NFL today.

    I believe whites are starting to wake up, albeit slowly. On many fan message boards you're seeing comments about race that you would not have seen five years ago.

    Whites are being oppressed and being told it's not happening. I think a great groundswell of resentment is developing. I think this groundswell will continue to grow and then one day the dam will burst wide open...

    I totally agree with the commenting on other sites message boards and I hope you are right about the dam bursting open sometime soon!

    Jordan Taylor was signed by the Broncos as a free agent.

    Taylor is 6-5 210 lbs and ran a 4.5 flat in the 40. He did well in the vertical and broad jumps.

    He definitely should have been drafted. If he was black he would have been.

    It is difficult commenting on other fan boards, however. If you want to stay on as a poster, you have to dance around the edges quite a bit, which can be frustrating. If you address race head-on, even with unassailable logic, you are usually banned. Of course, if you bring up race in a manner that say, LeSean McCoy would, that blacks are victims, then you can stay all day.

    Yea many of the mods gets off on banning people over honest and frank discussions about race. I do see comments on articles from espn, yahoo, pft etc. and every so often I see posters leave comments that I wouldn't have seem a few years ago. Most team discussion boards have no issue with demeaning and insulting white athletes though.
