    It should be a great game tonight, with plenty of white players to root for.

    The Vikings have Cousins, Thielen, Rudolph, Morgan, a 4/5 White OL, abd possibly Zylstra getting some PT as the 4th receiver. Defensively, they have Gedeon, Sendejo, and Smith.

    The Rams have Goff, Kupp, Higbee, and a 4/5 White OL. Defensively, LB Matt Longacre is a starter, with LB’s Hager and Lawler as backups.

    I’m hoping for Thielen and Kupp to have 100+ yard games for a national audience. For Thielen, it would be his 4th straight to open the season. I hear that Kupp will also be returning punts tonight, which could be good (he breaks a long TD) or bad (injury).

    Wow, Kupp with 88 yards and a TD already! After every catch, the fans are doing that deep-throated “Cooop” chant...similar to the way DWFs used to chant for Todd Heap, John Kuhn, and Heath Miller whenever they’d touch the ball.

    Thielen dominating, seemingly open on every play. These two are our most important receivers.

    Well, tonight is off to a pretty good start.

    And it got even better after I said that!

    Kupp does it again! 5 catches, 118 yards, 2 TDs in the first half. He’s burning the black Viking DB’s to a crisp!

    Thielen & Kupp are putting on a clinic in the 1st Half!

    Thielen had a 70 yard TD possibly taken away ...the whistle blew the play dead...didn't look like he was touched. Refs assumed he was...it was a 27 yard catch instead.

    What the hell was number 83 doing on that fake punt???

    Look for the ball, go up and get the ball......
    Any effort would have drawn a penalty, at least

    Seens deliberate that they forced Theilan off field for concussion protocol. He was extremely angry they pulled him. Predictably the Viking offense immediately stalls.

    And WHY is Kupp fielding punts and kickoffs?

    Why risk your star WR?

    Diggs stopped on the route bringing up 4th down for Min. I notice that seems to be happening alot lately with black receivers. They'll either quit on the route, or not even bother to look for the pass.. happened to Fitz on two of his 3 ints Monday.

    I wonder how many more seasons worth of opportunities will they give that bum Treadwell?

    I agree. I wouldn't do that if I was the coach.

    They're probably trying to justify the fact that they blew a first round pick on this guy.

    Now that Goff has an epic performance already in the bag, I wouldn't mind seeing Smith or Sendejo pick him off.

    Yes I agree.
    Even though neither Smith or sendejo have personally been beaten in coverage tonight, ESPN will surely try to swing the blame their way....

    Fantastic game. Goff definitely in MVP contention, while Cousins was pretty good too (lead the Vikings in rushing ahead of the much-hyped Dalvin Cook). Thielen and Kupp almost 300 yards between them is immense. Just wish our defensive players did a bit more but as Upside mentioned above none of them were particularly poor.

    Rams are certainly super bowl bound.

    That was as good as it gets in the Caste NFL with Kupp and Thielen starring and Jared Goff throwing one perfect pass after another. And hardly a coincidence that two relatively White friendly offenses put on a very entertaining show and couldn't be stopped by predominantly black defenses. It was just a little over a year ago that the caste clown media and DWF Nation had already written Goff off as a bust.

    Too bad those two teams can't meet in the Super Bowl. Hopefully the Patriots will pick it up with Edelman, Gronk and Hogan and play the Rams or Vikings in the big game.

    Thielen 8 receptions/135 yards/TD
    Kupp 9 receptions/162 yards/2 TD

    Also liked how Joe Buck and Troy Aikman poked fun at the silly new "roughing the passer" rules when Goff took a minor hit. If the QB's teammates don't charge in and confront the "rougher," it's probably not roughing the passer.
