    Fans on WJR post game talk radio wondering why Zenner hasn't been getting any playing time. Radio guys telling the fans to get real. Zenner is just a North-south throwback lunchbox hard worker. There's no place for him in today's NFL. Kerryon Johnson will be back soon and Zenner can go back to special teams.

    Haha. Zenner is the best RB on the Lions right now and will be for the remainder of this season. Johnson won't be 100% again this year. That radio guy is a clown.

    I hate whites who talk down whites.....I’m watching the Lions game now (DVR’ed it in case ZZ got a chance).....He was always an excellent back......Watching the Eastern Washington game Friday,, I’d be rich if I had a quarter every time the announcer called McPherson old school, lunch pail or throw back......McCaffrey hardly had any action in the second half....Even the announcers were talking about how the defense must be loving the fact that they were continually not giving the ball to their best player......

    Make that it both white Raiders TE's with TD receptions, with Derek Carrier's taking his in for game winner, he finished with 2 rec for 29 and that TD.
    Throw in Jordy Nelson who had another solid building off last weeks 100 yd effort, to bring in 6 rec for 50 yds.

    With 3 white pass catcher's involved on offense, and QB Derek Carr throwing to them the Raiders looked relatively white friendly

    Ha, listening to the talking heads try to spin Prescott's lousy performance. Anyone who saw that game knows Dak played so bad, at times, it looked like he was trying to lose...

    Same with Winston. The stat line looks good, but if you watched the game, he was terrible. He also tried to mouth off to one of his lineman, and was quickly put back in his place...

    And Newton is singlehandedly costing his team a playoff berth. Funny though, we keep getting told that he's playing his best ball....

    Media trying to polish turds...

    How can you tell a RB who averaged 4.6 ypc to go back to special team's? Isn't ypc what they use to measure how well a RB played, and isn't 4.6 well above most RB's average?

    As I was saying earlier, when a player is this close to breaking a record, someone gets in the coaches’ ear and they try to get it for him. I refuse believe no one knew about it, and he couldn’t get 5 stinking yards. From Roto:

    “George Kittle caught 7-of-9 targets for 210 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 14 win over the Broncos.
    Kittle did all of his damage in the first half. He needed just five second half yards to set the single-game record for a tight end and somehow did not get it. You would think the coach of a 2-10 team would have done him a solid and ensured he got in the record book. As it is, Kittle became the first tight end in 49ers history to post a 1,000-yard season. The highlight was an 85-yard touchdown where the Broncos did not bother to cover the 49ers' No. 1 weapon. Kittle was routinely running completely free, at least before the break. The 49ers get the Seahawks for Week 15”

    sCam Newton is physically breaking down, typical of quotabacks approaching the age of 30. The Panthers would be smart to start thinking about his replacement as early as next year.

    it's beyond unreal that Kittle didn't get a cheap pass or two thrown his way, even on 3rd and long for a short gain. oh well.

    Yeah, that would be the smart thing to do. However, I predict Newton costs Rivera and at least one more head coach their job before they cut bait....

    There is definitely something squirrelly going on, but this isn't new. This used to happen to Jordy all the time when he was in GB... It's happened a few times to Thielen this year. They'd be on track for a monster game, then for whatever reason, get bumped from the game plan in the 2nd half...

    Damn. Horrible showing for Goff and Trubisky. Was really hoping they'd light up the scoreboard in front of the national audience....

    Bad showing by the Rams for sure. I guarantee nobody in the NFC wants to play the Bears regardless of their seeding. Good D all year. Not good from our perspective but at least Trubisky is better than "other" possibilities...

    I was pretty ticked when Gesicki didn't leave Penn State after his big junior season. Those on this site know that a 'racial apprenticeship' (which can include not utilizing him properly) was likely for such a talent. He beez not dynamic like Kellen Winslow Jr or OJ Howard.

    From what I've seen the mainstream media still will not acknowledge the major affect the players kneeling had on fan interest, attendance and viewing. They attribute it to other factors. They, of course, support the disrespect of the flag and country.

    It will be the end of sports, at least contact sports at pro level. How is hockey doing, I wonder

    Has anyone noticed the commercials for diversity?? Remember, the NFL promised millions of dollars for racial inequalities...There were a couple that were about having girl sports as equal as boy sports, inner city inequalities, etc.....I think it was around 90 million dollars went to this horseshit....

    You're exactly right but I don't think the NFL understands yet their product was in trouble before Kapernick pulled his stunt. Many/most younger people are just not interested in football.
    Having said that, to expand a bit on my last post, I saw a piece in the USA Today that the IOC is in talks to put ESPORTS into the Olympics. That's big news.

    The oddest of all weeks as the above posts illustrate. And CrazyFinn hits the nail on the head describing the Patriots defense on that last second Miami TD. Can you believe some people are blaming Brady for the loss citing his rare mental error before the half? Without Brady, Gronkowski ( dumbass move putting him out there for D) and Edelman this team is winless.

    Two head coaches to be very concerned about. Belichick and Tomlin. We are seeing blown leads and pure idiocy take root too many times this season although both were showing wear last season. Often when a pitcher loses velocity on his fastball his career dovetails. Is this happening to these "winning" coaches? I see a lack of focus especially from Tomlin whose team has lost games they have no business of losing. Both rely on nearly all black defenses that have weak linebackers and run of the mill horrible defensive backs,

    Yes, TE George Kittle and a 400 yard receiving game would have really been a nice thing. He was on his way it seems until the bus took off without picking him up.


    And on the news thread White/Right mentioned Raiders' GM McKenzie ( good grief what took so long) has been fired. It will be interesting to see if this clear the decks thing going on with Gruden will bear something good in the future. Here is a hint. Draft white defenders. They have plenty of picks and there are enough available to scoop up.

    As for Jordy the season has not been a complete loss. Throw out several games where he was half injured, barely playing, or totally ignored, he still has 40 plus catches and the past two games he has caught a total of 15 passes.

    The Falcons and their black hole defense full of "quick twitch" black athletes have finally settled into their natural state of rot and it is good to see.

    And perhaps out of every conceivable media outlet I think I was alone when I predicted that QB Josh Allen's running ability will surprise people. Too bad he has the least to work with than any other NFL QB. Get him some help next season dammit! No wonder he is running for his life.

    Cowboys QB Prescott made some nice passes at the end of that wild Eagles game but don't be fooled. He continues to make horrid grade school mistakes that will likely doom this team down the road. He has the talent of making mistakes at the worst possible moment.

    Mentioned many times here but Bucs WR Adam Humphries is playing well and I think his team went down hill after he was skulled out of the game---I will have to verify he didn't reenter the game.[late edit maybe he played the whole game?]

    All in all the games put me in a sour mood. I root hard for Carolina because they have the best linebacker in the game in Kuechly and the all important caste busting RB in CM. In order for them to bask in glory though they have to win otherwise they will be relegated to the back pages like they are now. Funny I mentioned earlier in the season they didn't look right. Their DBs aren't just bad. They are actually puke inducing. How could Colin Jones be worse than this putrid lot?

    Only thing that will brighten my mood is a great game from Thielen tonight along with a Vikings win over the dreaded Seahawks. To paraphrase CrazyFinn from a post a while back they are like Serena and just won't die already.
