    Another afflete made out of glass. He was drafted 7th overall in 2015 and since then he's only played in 4 games. So in three years he will have only played 4 games. I bet that won't stop the Bears or even another team from signing him once his guaranteed contract is up after 2018, yup that's right, guaranteed contract. This ghetto lottery winner signed a fully guaranteed 16.5 million dollar contract when he got drafted, so he could get injured again next training camp and walk away with 16.5 mil for playing in only 4 games.

    The CB couldn't tackle CM so he reaches out and strips CM! No excuses for CM though. He's going to have to adapt.

    Goff over 300 yards - remember many in the media were calling for the Rams to throw in the towel on him already. Great 2017 debut for him.

    It will be interesting to compare how the mainstream media reports on Deshaun Watson's fumble and CMCs fumble.

    Will they emphasize MCM's fumble because he's white and de-emphasize Watson's fumble because he's black?

    He may be the biggest bust in league history, given how highly he was drafted and the prominent position he (was supposed to play). But he won't ever be talked about in that vein; speaking of which I heard a disparaging remark about Mike Mamula on the NFL Network just the other day. . .

    Never understood the Mamula hate one bit. The guy wasn't great but he was a decent player. Not a lot of sacks but he hurried QBs often. I couldn't believe people bood him at a pregame ceremony honoring former players.

    Booing players like that is almost always a slimy thing to do. The only time it would be justified would be with a bad player who thinks he's good. I wouldn't even boo Ryan Leaf because he admitted he was a bad player.

    Another one too. Over 100 all purpose yards! Did you notice how hard they were trying to strip him again?

    Charles Rogers and Mike Williams were both pretty big early 1st round WR busts. Bellamy and their RB Howard (who is a good RB) both had two drops at the end of that game.

    The crew announcing the 49ers-Panthers games have been doing their best to disparage McCaffery at any chance they get - it's real pathetic stuff. I believe someone mentioned that earlier in the thread.

    I had to mute it with this guy still talking about how many touches they gave CM. 13 rushes, 7 targets, and it's not like Cam is an accurate qb. Leonard Fournette in his debut had 26 rushes and 3 targets.

    Getting ready for the favorable calls and non calls for the Seahawks. Every season in tight games, you can count 100% on the refs helping out the cause as much as they can.

    The mainstream media loves to single out white people to attack. They picked Mamula as one of their targets.

    Mamula was not only highly athletic, he was also highly intelligent. These two attributes may have been why was targeted.

    Yep. I watched ever Eagles game he played in and thought he was okay and real good at times. But talk radio just destroyed him. It's all about sacks for them.

    Several of us have mentioned it. Yes, it's pathetic. Again, why I don't even watch the NFL anymore. I tuned in today to watch McCaffrey and it made me sick. I rely on the CF members to update me on white players.
    At least they gave CM a couple of more carries at the end. I didn't think we'd see him again after he fumbled.
    I had CM for 114 all purpose yards. 48 rushing, 38 receiving, and 28 PR's.

    Back to back plays that feature bonehead penalties against the Bennett Brothers.

    Plantation Pete's crew about to drop to 0-1.

    At least McCaffrey got his first fumble out of the way. I'm sure he'll learn from it.

    Yeah that one announcer started in on what a distraction McCaffrey was and I was ready to be indignant but he meant it in a good way. As in McCafrey changes the situation because of his versatility.

    Overall good game for him.

    Probably just PTSD from last week when a cop raised his voice at Michael.

    Good first game for sure. The announcers were a disgrace however. Brenneman was critical of Christian the whole game while if any Carolina player deserved it it was Newton. And after McCaffrey had a 17 yard run, cuck Spielman started talking about how the hole was so big that flag football players could have run through it or some such shuck and jive.

    Packers looked pretty good - hopefully this season begins the decline of Pete's plantation in the NFC West.
