    Here are your 2018 White Minnesota Vikings (starters in bold):

    QB - Kirk Cousins, Trevor Siemian, Kyle Sloter
    WR - Adam Thielen, Brandon Zylstra
    TE - Kyle Rudolph, David Morgan, Tyler Conklin
    OL - Riley Reiff, Tom Compton, Pat Elflein, Mike Remmers, Brett Jones, Brian O'Neill
    LB - Ben Gedeon
    S - Andrew Sendejo, Harrison Smith

    Special Teams: K Dan Bailey, P Matt Wile, LS Kevin McDermott

    Wide receiver Chad Beebe is on the practice squad, along with LB Garret Dooley and O-linemen Colby Gossett and Storm Norton.

    The Vikings will be Caste Football's favorite team this year (sorry, Patriots, but get some palefaces on defense, please). With QB Kirk Cousins leading the way and three White men - Thielen, Sendejo, and Smith - starting at Caste-verboten positions, this will be a team to cheer for consistently week after week.

    Total White starters: 10

    Total Whites on 53-man roster: 20

    Overall grade: B-

    I was browsing the SI NFL preview edition the other day and was curious what they’d say about Minnesota. Compliments towards Thielen, but even better, they call Smith and Sendejo the best safety tandem in the NFL!

    Mega-bust Laquon Treadwell, whose latest drops were so bad that even some DWFs are calling him out, remains on the active roster and may or may not be replaced at the #3 receiver position by another upsider, Aldrick Robinson.

    In a truly anti-racist league, Treadwell would be finished, and there would be no need to bring in Robinson when it would make much more sense to have Brandon Zylstra or Chad Beebe take the #3 receiver spot behind Thielen and Diggs.

    Heavens no! Thielen is firmly entrenched as the token white WR, the "honorary black". That's how he is seen by the predominantly black locker room. Bringing in more crackers to take "theys pozishuns" will upset the finely balanced racial equilibrium and cause the blacks to grumble and there goes the season!

    Minnesoota might want to rethink their placekicker as well, missing as much as he did in yesterdays game especially the potential game winning field goal is not so good....strong leg maybe not so strong mentally yet..

    They cut Carlson today. That last chip shot that he missed in OT did him in.

    Very sad. But hey, all of the replacement kickers are white, with a few latinos and asians maybe available. Not a glamorous enough position for the magical ones to pursue, apparently.

    High pressure position no one cares about until they miss! I remember wanting to yank my hair out at times when Mason Crosby had his struggles with misses a few years back. Cost GB a couple of close games and I like many others wanted him axed. Looking back at it glad we didn't, he was a veteran though and given opportunity to right the ship.

    Big fan of the Sendejo/Smith combo at Safety. Truly believe best safety combination in the league. Been saying it for awhile to a Vikings DWF I know.
