    Really enjoy your posts Shadowlight. I, like you, root for Carolina for the first time in my life for all the reasons you mentioned....and the fact that we need CM on the national stage! By making it to the playoffs this would help to cement him as a top 4-5 RB and possibly open some eyes. I said possibly? Kuechly, btw, was mentioned in the game yesterday as having the most NFL tackles ever through season seven! McCaffrey has a shot 1,000 rushing yards and an outside shot at 2,000 all purpose yards!
    Concerning Jones, I've watched a lot of Panther football this year and Jones got burned ONE TIME and that was it for him. Remember, whitey most of the time only gets one shot. If he makes just one mistake, it could be over. Contrast that with black players. Funchess, the Panther WR, I know has dropped over 14 passes this year and he is still a starter, I believe.

    We've said it so many time here. How good do white players have to be, to be starting in the NFL. Most of them are at the top or near the top of the stat page. Look at Kuechly. He's always near the top of the tackle stats. Kuechly ran down Cleveland's WR yesterday. How many LB's run down WR's. CM is in the top 5 in rushing. Do you think that any white RB's would be starting if they were mired at the 17th position averaging 3.7 yards per carry as Chicago's Jordan Howard is right now? No.

    To be starting in the NFL as white player, you are quite possibly one of the best athletes in the world!

    It is a shame Kuechly and CM have such abysmal talent surrounding them. I remember when Julian Edelman was thought of as an average player. That all changed after he bagged two Super Bowls although Edelman has never gotten the level of respect he deserves.

    Speaking of playing for atrocious teams. Poor Bills QB Josh Allen has absolutely nothing around him. Yet he still is trying to make something of it. See below a neat stat regarding his running exploits. After 8 games starting he is ahead of what many consider the greatest running QB of all time.

    Looks like Matt Milano is done for the year with a fractured leg. He has been outstanding for Buffalo- 78 tackles, 12 for loss, 3 int, 3 fum rec.

    I read all the comments under that article, @Shadowlight and there was a guy saying you would be hard pressed to find a rookie QB with that kind of passing numbers who became good or great. I guess he never heard of this Young guy, playing his first two seasons for the terrible Bucs team... Also, shaking my head at some other dude calling Allen 'sneaky' fast, but at least a few posters set the record straight.

    Someone needs to tell Jamal that Tuh-rod had a much better OLine last year, the Bills lost almost half of their starting line including 2 probowlers and I think one of them was all-pro. Just for starters. Also Tuh-rod wasn't a rookie, he has about 50 career starts. Blacks are piss poor at logic, they compare apples and donuts and always fall back on "RAYCISM!"

    Trying, but not much to see. Hard to understand not getting Theilan or Rudolph involved?

    first time in 47 games that Thielen had no targets in the first half. Vikings had like 10 snaps of offense, they could get nothing going. Cousins needs to step it up and find his ACTUAL reliable receivers.

    Seattle's ultra-DWFs are absolutely nauseating. BSPN has been showing lots and lots of crowd shots since the game is a bit of a snoozer.

    Minnesota a just three-and-out every possession. They've only crossed the 50 once and then failed to convert a 4th and 1 on the 41. Only score is an Old Man Janikowski field goal.

    Dung Beetle gets a BS call on an uncatchable pass.

    Nice to see Wilson crushed by a sack to make them have to kick another field goal.

    Looks like the Viqueens are going to be shut out by the Seahags.

    Shotgun formation at the goal line on back to back plays. Great playcalling there - gotta love the new NFL.

    Unbelievable. You can't get in from the 1, maybe you don't deserve to win. Crazy. Hopefully, the Seahags are eliminated from the playoffs on the final play of the season. Their fans will be worth watching then...

    Thielen was wide open on that fourth and goal, safety fell down. Cousins just didn't see him.

    If Minn doesn't get in the playoffs, which is now extremely likely, does Zimmer keep his job??

    After the 40 yard run by Midget Wilson, this game is just about in the refrigerator for Seattle. Jello's jigglin', butter's getting hard.

    What an annoying game. Minnesota should have taken the points with 4th and goal from the 2. Cousins’ late throw to Thielen causes him to get his ankle rolled up. Illegal field goal block where Wagner used his teammates as leverage to jump the snapper - not called. Dung beetle breaks a 40 yard run...
