    I believe the practice squad signings have to be officially announced by September 3rd.

    I am glad to see Cardale Jones, EJ Manuel and Joe Webb all get the axe. Next up should be Geno Smiff followed by the Gremlin and Hundley in the next couple of years.

    It's too bad Paxton Lynch did not pan out in Denver, I really do not think he was ever given a fair shot once Vance Joseph came on board. He was not given much of a chance at all. I will be interested to see if any team that needs a young QB will pick him up or if he will just be written off. Landry Jones is another quality QB who can be a reliable number 2 (would love to see San Diego cut Smiff and replace him with Jones). The Packers made some bad personnel decisions but at least they kept a young white QB on the roster.

    The results of the Patriots roster moves could of been worse - Berrios to IR and McCarron to the PS. We did see a vintage Bellichek move with the Chad Hansen signing. It would be nice if they signed Karl Klug, Carl Nassib and or Jamie Meder to shore up that defensive front. There are some solid white LBs out there who would be great fits as well (Scooby Wright comes to mind immediately). Matt Patricia and the Lions GM (both former Patriots) did not impress at all - Jace Billingley should of been on the active roster last year and made the team this year but he gets cut instead. It is too bad about Zenner being placed on IR.

    We might as well start calling John Gruden "Cucky" rather than Chucky - he did a full 180 on what looked to be the beginning of a roster overhaul for a very dark Oakland team.

    These cuts make it hard to watch this league, especially the skill position guys. There's been a trend per "the Wes Welker effect" with the number of white WRs sticking slowly increasing year by year, and this seemed like our best year yet. Cantrell, Berrios, McCarron, Reilly, Gentry, Hansen, and Nall are the ones that get to me. They proved themselves in pre-season like your suppose to do in pre-season but still cut. However i'm sure we'll see some of these guys when the injuries start to pile up like always.

    Gruden traded Switzer because Griff Whalen was looking like the starter, and then he cuts Whalen haha you got to be kidding me. :BangHead:

    I guess this is the result of his celebratory dive into the endzone after his long TD catch and run, what a shame.

    Packers placed WR Jake Kumerow (shoulder) on injured reserve. The fact Green Bay waited until after final cuts to put Kumerow on injured reserve means they expect him back this season. The preseason star will be eligible to return Week 9.

    The Texans resigned Qb Joe Webb. I think it’s clear their is no “patriot way” as O'Brien, Crenell, Patricia and McDaniels all have proven during their stints as head coaches.

    Khalil Mack signed a contract for over 20 million a year. Based on recent years he'll be getting over 2 million per sack.

    Has the salary cap gone up significantly? All of a sudden players are getting huge contracts.

    Did Hogan playing at Stanford have anything to do with this signing ?

    Perhaps. Considering that much of Lynch's problems were mental, maybe Elway thinks Hogan is a better mental fit since the academic bar is set higher at Stanford and he went there himself...just a guess.

    Lynch signed a three year contract and this was his third year. He played well in their last pre-season game. If it was guaranteed money, then it really doesn't make that much sense to me from a financial standpoint, unless most of it was paid up front or for his first two years. He understands the system and would've been third string anyway.

    Steelers name quotaback their backup after dumping Landry Jones. Pittsburgh fans get their own Brett Hundley to ruin the season if the elite white QB is injured.

    Yep. In all likelihood if Big Ben goes down at some point this season and they have to go with the quotaback, their season will be done.

    The love for Dobbs among Pittsburgh DWFs is predictably off the charts. And just as predictably the hate for LB Tyler Matakevich is also off the charts. But not to worry, Tomlin reverted to form and quickly demoted Matakevich after he was starting for a short time in training camp. Now the DWFs are demanding a free agent inside linebacker with limitless upside (Matthew Thomas) be given a starting position.

    Their hatred for Matakevich is similar to the Dolphins DWF's hatred of Kiko Alonso. Kiko was the Dolphins only starter at LB that was worth a damn. In fact, the cause of his lackluster season last year was due to him having to always compensate for the shitty LB play by the players around him. He was played out of position because none of the other linebackers were worth a pot to piss in. Despite Kiko being the Dolphins most consistent linebacker, he's the one who's always called to be replaced by some supa afflete.

    I think it comes down to affirmative action and social engineering. In the US if you've got around 2-3% of the population(black men between the ages 14-40) who commit the majority of violent crime. These are the people who make life almost unbearable for so many Americans. You'd think this group of 2-3% of the population would be seen as pariahs and universally despised by everyone right? But they're not, thanks to the Caste System as well as the (((entertainment industry) this cancerous group of black men is able to enjoy a higher social status than the average white man. In the eyes of the DWF and the blue pilled masses every black male has the potential to be a great athlete or a talented entertainer. That's all they see on television.

    Good nickname for sure. Gruden's quick retreat back to his previous stature as a Caste disciple after being one of the better TV analysts is one of the bigger disappointments of the pre-season. I hope Jordy has a huge season or two left in the tank, but other than that I think it won't be long before Cucky regrets leaving the broadcast booth, though he won't mind counting the money that was thrown at him to bring him back on the sideline.

    I have been a member on this site for approximately 10 years! But this white purge and the caste system re-establishing itself this season is more terrible and more destructive towards Whites more than ever before. I thought Gruden had seen the light as a broadcaster. But he was quickly brought into line before the season started. This season we are regulated to pulling for approximately 3 teams and little more than a dozen white stars!!!

    Like a poisonous weed, the Caste System has spread throughout the media. Watching commercials, blacks are a super-race of high achievers in all areas of society and are the majority race in Amerika. Whites, especially White men, are a minority race of morons and criminals. It's gotten to the point that any time a couple or family is shown, or some erudite type, I expect to see blacks.

    Nassib signed by the Bucs and the cucks at rotoworld are actually complementary of him.
    Under HC Dirk Koetter, the Black Bucs have gotten noticeably Whiter. They have 2 WRs, a good TE in Brate, and finally some defenders other than Conte. If they could just ditch the moronic, criminal quotaback, they’d be a very good team to root for.

    Good News for Nassib. I guess he is better off than staying with a team that will go 4 and 12 this season. After game a 3 game losing record from the start, the fork will be finally forced into the negro HC for the betterment of all.

    Indeed, Tampa Bay is becoming a good CF team to root for. They have been easy to tune out for years because of Crab Legs and Hatie, but the past few years they have been accumulating a few of our guys at skill positions. I'll bet if they ever get rid of Crab Legs, the ownership would go full caste at the skill positions. Only so many palefaces allowed on any given team.

    Wouldn't it be awesome to see Hogan and Hansen starting on the outside and Edelman in the slot?

    Good posts about the Bucs possibly turning the caste ship around. LB Jack Cichy also made the team!

    Maybe I'm being "prejudiced," but I have little faith that a White man who already looks like a slob at 43 years of age will be any kind of Caste buster.

    There were some folks in the booth behind me at a restaurant last night, and I heard the most amazing DWF logic. It came on the heels of Nate Stupar being cut by the Saints, a totally ridiculous move if there ever was one. Mr. DWF said the only reason Stupar was playing good was he was trying to cover up for his mistakes. :copas:
