    As we head into Week 17 of the NFL season, I would like to say that from a Caste perspective, this has been the best regular season since I started lurking around this forum in 2010 and then decided to join in 2012.

    As many others have noted, it has been a season that has included Christian McCaffrey’s breakout season (which includes the 100/100 game, hitting over 1K rushing yards and breaking the reception record for a RB), Adam Thielen’s consecutive 100 yard games, Zach Ertz reception record for a TE, Tom Brady/Drew Brees/Ben Roethlisberger/Philip Rivers setting records and achieving more milestones, the emergence of young superstars such as Christian McCaffrey, George Kittle, Cooper Kupp, TJ Watt, Leighton Vander Esch and a group of young QBs (Luck, Goff, Wentz, Trubisky, Allen, Darnold, Mayfield) that are ready to take the NFL by storm..................We can also end the season with 9 pass catchers finishing with over 700 receiving yards.

    If NE can come together and pull it off with Brady, Edelman, Hogan, Gronk, Burkhead, it will be the icing on the cake for me! MIN winning will be my second best scenario.

    Tom Brady’s success as the greatest NFL player in history is already a big F U to all of these “professional” talent evaluators that take magical upside over work ethic/intelligence/tape. Tom Brady achieving 9 super bowl appearances and winning a 6th super bowl will surpass Michael Jordan as the greatest athlete of all time.

    I agree it's been a good season all in all. The lack of White players on defense is infuriating when so many of the ones who do play stand out in a big way.

    And at tight end it's now the era of Kelce, Ertz, Kittle and Gronk (if he maintains his health and interest in playing). The Golden Age of White Quarterbacks is still here. Wide receiver was a disappointment other than Thielen and the emergence of Adam Humphries, but it's still a lot better than the Dark Ages of the 1990s before things improved for a few years starting in '98.

    Unfortunately, as long as The Great Replacement of Whites in America remains the main agenda of the power structure, albeit almost never mentioned except in circles like ours, the NFL and College Football Inc. will continue to push the Caste System as hard or harder than ever. It's a fact of life, until and unless enough aware Whites decide to get personally involved in creating positive change in this society. (And there are many things that can be done without worrying about being "doxxed.")

    Uhmmm Wayne Greztky was a far superior athlete to Michael Jordan in every way. IMO

    From an individual perspective, I believe with what Wayne achieved on the ice will be far superior than any other athlete has done within their respective team sports, but right now the DWFs, media establishments and the casual census don’t see Gretzky as the greatest athlete of all time. America’s Mount Rushmore includes Babe Ruth, Tom Brady, Michael Jordan, Cassius Clay and Wayne Gretzky, but the nod is normally given to Michael Jordan as the all time greatest athlete.

    Just glancing at some of the games this weekend. Since New Orleans has locked up the top seed, it's going to be "Sewerwater time!" Another reason to root hard for the Carolina Panthers.

    Cleveland/Baltimore should be an interesting matchup of first round picks with Mayfield up against Eraserhead. It's no secret who I'll be rooting for here. Jackson is one of the worst-throwing QB's that I've seen. Besides, a Ravens loss and a Steelers win will let Pittsburgh win the division. Still feels strange to be rooting for this scenario.

    In the AFC the top seed is still up for grabs. If the Chiefs and Chargers both lose and the New England wins, the Pats will be the top seed. It's probably not likely as the Chargers figure to mop up on the Broncos who mailed in their last game vs the Raiders. Chiefs losing wouldn't be a surprise. The Raiders are playing remarkably well while the run-game-and-defense-free Chiefs are fading fast. "It's" Pat! Mahomes is still playing well, but can't do it all himself as evidenced by the game against the Chargers.

    Both Travis Kelce and George Kittle are on track to surpass the record for most receiving yards in season for a tight end currently held by another white man, Gronk. The record is 1,327 yards. Kelce currently has 1,274 and Kittle has 1,228.

    Vikings are still in the driver's seat for a wild card berth, but have to beat the Bears, no mean feat. If they lose they can still get in with a loss to the Redskins by the Eagles.

    As Don pointed out in the OP, many of the "unimportant" games will feature hard-working, lunchpail-carrying, tight-hipped, sneaky-fast overachievers. It's normally the best week of the season to watch, if only for this reason.

    I'd love for Lions to give the rock to Zenner. He's been great for them this year and yet they keep wasting carries on mister "maybe 2 ypc" Blount...

    is McCaffrey going to play? while I wouldn't mind another 100 yards on the ground and whatever catches he can add to his NFL record, I kinda hope they sit him in this meaningless game.

    McCaffery is 75 away from 2,000 yards from scrimmage and 97 yards behind Peyton Hillis' 1,177 rushing total from 2010. I'd like to see McCaffery eclipse both of those totals today. Maybe he can get another 100 yard game and also break 900 receiving yards (he's at 845).

    Note: at 1,925 yards McCaffery is second in the league in yards per scrimmage with Ezekiel Elliot at 2,001. With those numbers he should be going to the Pro Bowl.

    Bucs are bringing back Jameez - predictable and stupid. Hopefully they draft a white QB in the mid rounds.

    Only good thing about Crab Legs is that he throws to Adam Humphries more than any other Bucs QB.

    Fat Matt is a retard. Blount is washed up and not part of next year’s plans. Why not give ZZ a full days reps as an audition for next year.

    Panthers 3rd string QB Kyle Allen takes them straight down the field, along with CM for an opening drive TD. CM 40 total yards on the first drive!

    Brady has actually thrown twice to Hogan so far, very White of him. Gronk with one catch, a couple carries by Burkhead so far. . .

    That was a vintage drive by Brady spreading the ball around. It's the money time of the season.

    Zenner with a nice run up the middle, nearly scoring, whereupon the two White idiot announcers begin cracking jokes about ZZ being too slow to run to the outside.

    I heard the announcers say CM is only the 2nd player in NFL history to have 1500 rushing/1500 receiving yards in his first two seasons. He's a great talent! Kyle Allen was a big time recruit - left Texas A&M and was pulled last year at Houston. He had some positive buzz leading up to the draft in 2018 - it's nice to see him on the field - I hope he continues to develop and perhaps take over for the declining Scam in a couple of years.

    Christian is out of the game, at least for now. He's about 35 yards away from 2k from scrimmage, I wouldn't mind him getting it. Saints are playing very soft atm, even bumbling Artis Payne managed a 15 yard TD...

    Looks like CM will come up about 35 yards short of 2,000 yards from scrimmage as Cameron Artis-Payne is now playing. Artis-Payne is a reliable RB, but he sure doesn't look like he runs a 4.5 40 as his draft profile indicates. His 20 yard shuttle was 4.25 timed at his pro-day which probably translate to around 4.35 laser timed?

    Blake Jarwin, TE with his first career TD for Cowboys.

    EDIT: Brady just missed wide open Gronkowski and just now overthrew Hogan all alone in the end zone...
