    Wow, I didn’t even know this and I’ve been checking the transaction wire everyday. Stupar looked like the Saints best defender during much of the preseason and by all accounts is very solid on special teams. Therefore it makes perfect sense that he is cut :nut::rolleye::confundio1:.

    I’m almost certain he’ll be signed for depth by another team, but it still grinds my gears that he has to go through this grand injustice at all.

    The promise of the last two drafts is quickly losing its shine here in Western New York. The Bills have the 2nd darkest 53 man roster in the AFC East trailing only the Todd Bowlegs led Jets. Not only did Brandon Beane cut the ONLY white player ever drafted by Dougtavious Whaley in Nick O'Leary---who also happens to be the grandson of none other than Jack Nicklaus----but there is now also the rare added indignity of having a mudmanoid punter with the cutting of Colton Schmidt in favor of Corey Bojorquez !!! I always used to joke that Dougtavious was gonna swing a trade for Marquette King and thought I'd never have to worry about such a thing again. Boy, was I wrong !!!! Of course the local marxist media mavens are raving about Bojorquez's supposed "big" leg, but are ignoring the fact that none other than Bill Belichick himself said that the reason he never got to attempt any punts in the pre-season was due to him failing to earn the oppurtunity to do so in practice.

    The 4/5ths useless Sumo Offensive Line is going to be a disaster. The 4/5ths white 2nd team Offensive Line greatly outperformed them in the pre-season. It was no surprise to me at all that two members of that group who were jettisoned---Ike Boettger and Adam Redmond----were quickly claimed on waivers. The practice squad is a disgrace. No Brandon Reilly or Austin Proehl and 9/10ths black !!!! I haven't checked, but that has got to be the coal-blackest practice squad in the whole league or at the very least tied for that dubious distinction. The more things change, the more they stay the same !!!!

    Two RB's leave college early, after junior season. Here are their combine results. Compared as best as possible in a electronic time scenario:
    RB:1
    5'11: 230lbs.
    40 yd. 4.63
    20 yd. shuttle: 4.65
    Vert: 31.5
    BJ: 9'05"
    3 cone: 7.12
    Described as a below average athlete, only ability is to grind his way to yardage. Excellent blocker.
    Was drafted in the 7th round.
    RB struggles and brings up the rear of RB's in training camp. Makes the practice squad and eventually signs a contract, but later cut and picked up by another NFL team.

    RB:2
    6'2; 232 lbs.
    40 yd. 4.58
    20 yd. shuttle:4.16
    Vert: 33
    BJ: 10'02
    3 cone: 6.95
    Described as an above average athlete. Above average vision an inside runner, who glides behind blocks and runs with patience.
    Goes undrafted.
    Gets picked up as UDFA and flourishes in training camp, averaging almost 7 yards per carry.
    Released, but makes practice squad.

    I know, I know, we've seen this hundreds of times. Just putting it out there for the lurkers.
    BTW, everyone knows who RB 2 is. Can anyone guess who RB 1 is? He came out after his junior season in 2017. Really doesn't matter.
    Actually, RB 1 is a pretty good young man, but NO white RB would have been drafted with those numbers as evident by RB 2's numbers which were much better and still didn't get drafted!!

    Leveon Bell is a self-absorbed pothead drama whore. I'm enjoying the stress he's causing Steelers DWFs again this year, and hope he holds out into the season and then is injured when he finally does report due to being out of shape. Bell and fellow diva Antonio Brown make the Steelers an unlikable team. If/when he does show up, Bell may actually be booed by a large number of DWFs, who are usually ultra-forgiving when it comes to black athletes.

    Steelers LG Ramon Foster and C Maurkice Pouncey expressed frustration with Le'Veon Bell continuing his holdout on Wednesday. "What do you do? Here’s a guy who doesn’t give a damn, so I guess we’ll treat it as such. I just hate it came to this," Foster said. "He’s making seven times what I make, twice as much as [LT] Al [Villanueva] is making and we’re the guys who do it for him." Pouncey added, "The business part...I get it. But not if it's game day. We have a game this Sunday, we're all the way into the game plan and you're still not here?" Players typically side with players on money, but not when it's costing the team potential wins with Bell not showing up. This is getting ugly for Bell.

    Matt Patricia is now officially a caste clown:

    Lions waived DE Anthony Zettel. It's a surprise after Zettel had 6.5 sacks in a starting role last year, but he wasn't a fit in a Detroit scheme that's expected to have more 3-4 fronts. 26-year-old Zettel should resurface waivers.

    Sure the scheme is why they cut a productive young DE. LOL. Screw Patricia, at this rate Detroit would have been better off with the blank faced Jim Caldwell still running the show.

    That clueless black was far more fair!

    Patricia is a slob and first rate DWC (drunk white coach). NE’s defenses became coal black under his reign of terror. Apparently he wants to purge the few Whites left on Detroit.

    Despite the current coal black roster, if I were a Bills fan I'd still be cautiously optimistic as I think Josh Allen is going to be a stud. Hopefully Buffalo drafts some white O-linemen in the next couple of drafts in order to protect their new investment and not do what Miami did with Ryan Tannehill by loading up the line with useless sumos. It's also good that Peterman is going to be starting for them as this buys them some time.

    So let's see:
    Klug gone
    Meder gone
    Simon gone
    Zombo gone
    Jared Crick nor Shea McClellin haven't gotten an ounce of interest this offseason; Neither has Brian Cushing despite being better than, I'd wager half the starting LBs in the league...
    Now Zettel inexplicably cut after a 7 sack season...

    I'm sure I forgot a few more, but these are all starting caliber defensive players who will be sitting on the couch for week 1... smh

    Yeah, I'm probably overreacting a bit, but like a lot of us, final cutdown day more often than not enrages me. The purging of Dougtavious Whaley and Idler Arm Taylor were both positive steps in the right direction as was 7 out of 14 draft picks in the last two drafts being white. 50% white drafts in the NFL are unheard of these days and I was really encouraged by this, especially after enduring only ONE white selection out of 20 during the unfortunate reign of Dougtavious. I was excited with the Allen pick as many prognosticators had them trading down to gain picks and selecting Lamar Jackson. Hopefully, there will be a Sumo purge soon and they pick up another white TE. Looking at the bright side, at least there will be 3 white starters on defense. Speaking of the bright side, kudos to the Dolphins. I believe there 53-man roster now sits at 21 white players. That's approaching Chip Kelly territory !!!!

    Waiving Zettel was a stupid and incompetent move. He was good enough to be a decent starter but all of a sudden he isn't even good enough to be a backup? He was cut because he's white, period.

    Also, the Pats promoted WR Riley McCarron and the Panthers signed QB Connor Cook to the practice squad!

    The Patriots with an unheard of 3 White receivers. Hopefully they make it 4 when Edelman returns by cutting Dorsett.
