    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.

    Zylstra survives! Black receiver Stacy Coley cut instead to make room for black replacement Aldrick Robinson.

    Now Aldrick Robinson can start dropping passes and running wrong routes.

    But he has dat upside! Definitely worth having on your roster until he’s 30, could realise that upside any minute now...

    With all the excitement surrounding Thielen's amazing 2018 campaign, I wanted to mention that WR Brandon Zylstra (who led the CFL in receiving in 2017) had his first reception yesterday. Should injuries occur, or should the Vikings ever give up on former 1st round bust, Treadwell, Zylstra could easily be the beneficiary. It would be Patriots-esque to see Cousins regularly completing passes to Thielen, Rudolph, and Zylstra later in the season. Video...

    With WR, Chad Beebe, activated from the PS for last week’s game, the Vikings now have 21 whites on their 53-man roster, including 3 white WR’s (Thielen, Zylstra, and Beebe), 3 white TE’s (Rudolph, Morgan, and Conklin), 3 white QB’s (Cousins, Siemian, and Sloter), and 2 white safeties (Smith and Sendejo).

    I’m rooting hard for this team to hoist the Lombardi Trophy February!

    Indeed! I'm pulling for the Vikes
    all the way. I like the Rams roster too, as it is made up of all the overachievers we appreciate.

    If it comes down to them both in the NFC Championship it's a win-win but I'd pull for the Purple People Eaters. And yes, I'd probably pull for either one against our beloved Pats on the AFC side even though it would feel very odd. The Pats I love, but their 53 ain't what it used to be. The GM and draft decisions have disappointed me in recent years.

    A Vikes vs Pats SB would be great for the world to see and a kick against the Caste System.

    Thrashen, for several years the teams that seemed to appear the most on Prime time, national games (because they get the best ratings?) on NBC, ESPN and Fox Thursday on Sunday 4:25 national are the Patriots, Packers and Cowboys. All fairly white friendly teams by today's NFL standards, who are more easy to market than the odious Seahawks or Jaguars?

    Looks like the Vikings are joining that trio: This week, even the Commie shekel hoarders over at NBC decided the Vikings are so enticing, they flexed out/relegated Steelers @ Jaguar to early Sunday afternoon and moved Vikings @ Bears up to Prime time. This is somewhat surprising because NBC also has Green Bay @ Minnesota next week -- same team 2 weeks in a row! How often does that happen on NBC?

    Don't forget NBC also had Vikings against New Orleans a few weeks ago. So 3 of the Vikings 4 games from the end of October through November will be Prime time Sunday night on Marxist NBC?

    Are the Minnesota Vikings the new America's team?

    By the way, the first Norsemen December game is a Fox featured 4:25 vs. the Patriots. Then ESPN has Vikings at Seattle. After that, expect more "flexing" for Minny to Prime time night or 4:25 "national" in the final three weeks.
