    If C-Mac was so poorly used and ignored there is no way he gets 80 regular season receptions. Could he have been used better? Certainly, but compare his overall stats with other white RB's over the last several years, rookie or not, and it compares pretty favorably.

    All four matchups featured teams that were within one White starter of each other. Jax is slightly less overwhelmingly black than Buffalo and has a White QB, and Atlanta started 8 Whites. I look at it pretty much as a wash, in the Caste NFL there's little deviation between teams as far as White starters. Even the former "polar opposites" from a few years ago, New England and Pittsburgh, are within one White starter of each other now. Minnesota is the closest thing to an outlier. On the other hand a lot of individual White players excelled in the four games this weekend, and that's the most important thing.

    When was the last time two white non-wide receivers each had over 100 yards receiving and a touchdown in a game for the same team?

    Different strokes for different folks but man I am looking at what happened yesterday from another angle. I don't think I am entirely alone here either based on some posts. And yet again there was one late call that DEFIES description and one other that falls under the bad call category.

    Here I am siting at a table sucking down some beers with Luke Kuechly and CM, two players I deeply admire and root for, and I say great game guys I really liked the stats you put up but I was kind of glad your team LOST. And it isn't as if the Saints aren't a caste friendly team. They are like the Falcons your basic run of the mill caste team that do nothing to push against the caste sports world mind set.

    Meanwhile the Panthers had white skill players making huge contributions and they are anchored on D by All Pro Kuechly. Putting up nice stats is great and I certainly enjoy players like CM filling up the stat sheet but for these things to make a greater and more important impact a team must win. Winning is the best way to fight the caste cloud and enhances EVERYTHING which is why the Pats win last year was so euphoric. And winning is what sports is all about.

    I don't want to get too detailed about the game and even though I have often complained about Newton over the years I thought he played well. I don't think he is to blame for the loss. The DB's of Carolina made a couple of fatal errors along with a pass rush that didn't apply enough pressure. DE Peppers took an ill conceived inside rush where he clearly misread the play leaving Brees a wide open roll out long pass late. That said the D did snuff out the most vaunted rushing attack in the NFL.

    But it was two late calls that make you wonder. I don't think the games are fixed but like the Chiefs game there were some completely out of the ordinary calls taking place against the team with the white skill players. Is this the THEME this year? I think the intentional grounding call was bad and at key junctures of the game the refs should keep their flags in their pockets unless it is an over the top infraction. That call sealed their doom.

    But it was the earlier call that was downright crazy. All year long I have been watching games being held up by reviews. Heck at times it seems as though they are checking for hang nails. And especially under the two minute mark where they go over EVERYTHING with a fine tooth comb. So why didn't the refs and or the monitor dudes in NYC pick up on the fact that the Carolina DB who intercepted the ball didn't actually make a full catch? They didn't review the play which totally stunned me and the ESPN roundtable at the end of the game. What's the big deal? In the middle of the second quarter it is not the end of the world. But with only two minutes left and I think zero timeouts left it meant having the ball on your own 30, which is where they placed the ball, or having the ball at midfield. That is a crucial 20 yard difference as the clock is winding down and you are driving for the winning score.

    One final note, CM outperformed all the other more heralded rookies ( Fournette, Hunt and Kamara) in the playoffs. It is a bloody shame he didn't get a chance to make one more heroic play at the end of the game. And continue onward through the playoffs. He can't make splash plays if his team is eliminated.

    The early game I agree with the posts above that the media is taking the WINNING QB to the woodshed. The bottom line is Bortles outplayed media hero Taylor.

    watching the replay of CM's touchdown, he was not pulling away from his eventual tackler but he was not being caught from behind either, he had a step to a step and a half(1 body length) so defender was able to reach him as he went across the line but he blew the doors off the rest of the negro defenders. This kid is a speedster!! As well I am happy he got the pass coming out of the backfield not lined up as a receiver. I also agree they made a huge mistake using him as a blocker instead of throwing to him or handing the ball off to him on the last series of the game. Scam the brain dead so obviously wanted to be the hero but ended up looking like the zero he is. Look at Brees composure compared to Scam's. My buddy thinks Brees intentionally threw downfield off the scramble hoping he would have his pass intercepted and stopped immediately if he was unable to find an open receiver. I am not sure of that but I do know that Adams screwed up and should have batted the ball down he will have to live with that, on the other hand I still wonder why the refs did not review as to whether he actually had control of the ball on the interception, it sure did not look like it...

    If Carolina had a better QB starting they win....

    Blacks intercepting the ball downfield on fourth downs instead of knocking it down has been going on for a number of years, part of the dumbing down of the game. It's all about making a flashy play, not about making the smart play.

    Another example is how almost no teams know how to run a two minute drill any more. Clock management is horrendous, and most of the time quarterbacks will throw dink and dunk short passes until they have no choice but to chuck a Hail Mary instead of the several intermediate to deep passes that must be attempted if a touchdown is to be made in the time left.

    After the Carolina player picked off Brees' pass and it wasn't clear if he made the pick or not, you could see one of the Saints receivers actually signaling that it was incomplete, of course not realizing that an interception gave Carolina worse field position. That's how dumbed down the NFL is.

    So is it true that there is only one half quotaback left in the playoffs? Poor caste clowns like Al and Chrissy what are they going to say about that?

    Another example of the dumbing down is when a DB makes an interception and in the end zone and instead of taking a knee for the sure 20 yards goes for the glory and gets stopped way short of the 20.

    On a plus note I did notice at least some of Atlanta's players actually making good fundamental tackles, wrapping up and the whole bit. Maybe a coach is going to the trouble?

    Below is a run down of the game changing horrible slew of calls this weekend. The list includes one idiotic idea regarding the Kelce "fumble" and thankfully the one post at the bottom pointed it out. Screw the idea if it was a fumble or not. That should have been a 15 yard penalty automatic first down for KC. A vicious skull shot that the announcers and media mentioned but never brought up the idea that it was a penalty. Reminds me of the game last season where Jordy got speared in the ribs illegally by a DB. There was too much of this MOVE ALONG crap by the refs all weekend long. I normally don't crab much about refs but things were so blatant this weekend an investigation should not be ruled out.

    Video of some of Brees top throws. There were a whole bunch. He played great, I thought. Two throws in the video feature Josh Hill. The back shoulder grab by Josh was a thing of beauty.

    Drew Brees put on a quarterback clinic. I didn't realize he set an NFL record 72% completion rate this year. On the interception he had to throw it up for grabs since it was 4th down. Turned out to be a short punt.

    Carolina DWFs still think Cam Newton is the "Michael Jordan of football," and as such, none of the fault lies with him in this loss. This particular DWF lists both Olsen and CMC in the top 3 for his players to replace for next season despite the fact that they accounted for 60% of sCam's passing yardage during the game and both of his TDs: http://www.carolinahuddle.com/board...-this-offseason/?tab=comments#comment-4400174

    Scam had CM WIDE OPEN in the first half for an EASY Walk in but never even looked that side of the field and ends up throwing an incomplete pass! He's terrible.

    That's probably a negro poster.

    He's slow of mind; it takes his brain more time to see an opening and that's why he runs around to try to get time to see. And this so-called "mobility" means that numskulls like him, or any so called "mobile" quarterback, throws while moving causing them to throw so many wobble-lobs or off the mark tosses.

    That hit was an easy-call foul because Kelce was already wrapped up at the time so the spearing was just to injure. If that had been a hockey game, KC would have taken down number 37 and put him on a stretcher.

    Funny you should mention retaliation Ambrose. I am more than just a little perplexed why a personal foul was all but ignored on such a blatant head shot to Kelce and the media ignored the punkish move by #37 altogether. And I know you know a thing or two about that because you are a boxing expert. Football has become such a black ruled ******* playground cheap shot sport that weasels like #37 get away with vicious skull shots without worrying about the consequences. Hockey is a good example. Another one is baseball where there is still a bit of sanity and old fashioned character left because there are enough whites left to know the difference between fair play and criminal behavior. If that punk pulled something like that off in a baseball game he would get a 98 MPH fastball right under his chin as a warning suggesting" you pull that outlaw crap again you are going to pay the price." It is called law and order but sadly these ******* black DB's who head hunt ( often white WR's) don't play by those rules.

    They don't play by our unwritten codes of conduct. Look how they treat each other over the merest of slights. In Chicago they kill each other for walking on what they think is their side of the street.

    No question just look at the BLM riots where they burn down cities and a fawning CNN decries inequality. Every perceived slight is an occasion for outright violence. Whatever happened to old fashioned discipline and self control?

    After the snap Scam is just a bit better than a one read, done then run, most of the quotabacks that is their ceiling so yeah he is the Jordan of the NFL but never a Peyton Manning.

    I thought for sure that there would be a fine coming out of that hit. Surely they would review the game and see that blatent head shot. These helmets need to go. Black defenders are such terrible tackles. They only know how to throw their bodies into people.

    Gheez, there is a video going around of Sean Payton doing a Zulu dance with the team after their victory. Some rapper created a rap song to go with the video. Might be all we' ll see in this area till the game against the Vikings. :rocket2:

    Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry are rolling over in their graves.
