    The Patriots vs the Colts : Thursday Night Football.

    Brady was his usual methodical self, and the Patriots dismantled the Luck led Colts -(38-24) The Colts played some gutty football and were trying the entire game, all of course on the back of the underrated Andrew Luck.

    Absolutely horrid display by the Colts WR all day long, I lost count of the dropped passes and missed TD's by the stone handed receivers. How any of them are on a roster in the NFL is proof of a caste system.

    Gronkowski does not look 100% and he is visibly not the player he once was, I was shocked to hear he had not played an entire season since 2012(?) Edelman looks like a man possessed, and it was apparent how much the Patriots needed him in the lineup.

    Overall our players really did well, minus Hogan who has been disappointing .

    Brady - 341 yards, 3 TD, and 2 int
    Luck - 365 yard, 3TD and 2 int
    Gronkowski - 6/75 yards
    Edelman - 7/57yards

    The “weapons” Luck has at his disposal right now, with Hilton and Doyle out injured, are just downright sad.

    Running Back
    Two mid-to-late round rookies who have never shown anything too impressive at college or pro level.

    Receiver
    Rogers, Swoope, Johnson, Pascal: UDFAs who have never shown anything
    Ebron: giant draft bust, thrown away by Detroit.
    Grant: late round pick, thrown away by Washington.

    And yet there are a ton of white receivers out there on practice squads or not even with a team - Jeff Janis is better than every WR on the colts roster aside from Hilton.

    The Patriot offense has come alive in the past 2 games, but it’s all the black players getting the TDs. It’s good to have Edelman back, but Gronk as has been mentioned is clearly not 100%, mentally and physically it seems. And Hogan has completely disappeared. There’s not much to root for with this team at the moment.

    Thankfully, there are some other bright spots to keep things interesting. I’m really hoping for a multi-TD game from McCaffrey. The problem is, he may be involved as a runner or passer in a given series picking up a ton of yards, but once it’s first and goal, either that $@&@& Newton takes it himself or they give it to someone else.

    Chris Hogan was WIDE OPEN for the entirety of the play(down the left quadrant AND then across the end zone) that ended in Josh "Sizzurp" Gordon's much ballyhooed first TD as a Patriot, which also happened to be Tom Brady's 500th. I know Hogan had that unfortunate ricochet drop that resulted in an interception earlier in the game, but I don't know what's going on there. Hogan would've walked into the end zone untouched had Brady looked his way. Gordon, on the other hand went to an area of the field that was combo covered and only made the catch due to that all-too- familiar total lack of awareness on the part of the afflete DBs that were "covering" him. While disappointing, (but not the least bit suprising given BB's old-age aquiesence to the Caste System) to see Gordon starting in lieu of him, it was good to see Hogan out of the slot and back in his regular role with the return of Julian Edelman, but the way things are trending for him don't look too promising. Hopefully, it doesn't continue to escalate.

    Last night's game is also being discussed on the Patriots thread but two comments about last night.

    I was in my car but they said in pregame Edelman raced across the entire field and the crowd went bonkers. Also I could sense a totally different vibe with the offense with Edelman out there. Boosted the energy of the offense an entire level up. Before the Pats looked very lethargic. And I was glad to see Edelman looked like he had some spring in his step. This fiery competitor is a game changer.

    Italian hit the nail on the head. The TD pass to Gordon was a lesson in what is wrong with (black) DB play today. More than half the time black DBs are out of position wandering around aimlessly looking for someone to hit. But in this case the WR was double covered ( I am assuming a S and a CB but don't care enough to find out) and the DBs were in perfect position to disrupt the pass and likely knock it away. Instead these clueless fools had no idea what was going on and let Gordon catch a pass he had no business catching. One player blindly ran towards the end of the end zone where a catch would have been nearly impossible. No judgement. No spacial awareness. The other DB stood there like a statue. Had the play covered and yet they still screwed it up.

    If those DBs were white they would have been tied to a car and dragged over gravel. They would be on the bench in a blink of an eye. The beat writers and many of the fans would be howling for their heads and before you know it they would be shown the exit door.

    But black DBs like weather forecasters continue on unabated and undisturbed because that is the natural state of things right? It is a God given right for blacks to own the DB position no matter what. No matter what!

    The more I watch the horrific play of black DBs in college and the NFL the more I get the sense that they are one trick ponies. The majority of them can run a quick straight line 40 yard dash an event they start practicing as soon as they learn to walk. They damn well know that is their ticket. But watching all of the other necessary skills needed they mostly lack. The ability to start and stop on a dime. To be able to judge a ball in mid flight. Spatial awareness. The inability to understand what is developing in front of their eyes. Many cannot make a simple tackle.

    Many seem muscle bound stiff and unable to maneuver their bodies correctly. I could go on. But the free pass most of these bums get really gets me in light of the fact that white DBs catch hell for miniscule mistakes.

    Each draft we have to suffer through an avalanche of black DBs being chosen and I ( sure many here are too) am getting damn sick of it.

    Hogan is not a disappointment nor has he disappeared, it is because Brady has been told to throw to other negro wr's and not Hogan. You can see this as Brady is barely looking his way and only throws to him if no other alternative is there. It is blatant. I am hoping that Brady rebels with Edleman back and starts throwing to his "true" deep threat Hogan.

    I knew Edelman would give the Pats a huge boost, he's just a game changer!

    Hogan continues to be neglected, but atleast he improved on last weeks 1 catch game with 3 rec for 34 yards.
    To be fair Hogan out-produced Patterson and Dorsett, so he still appears to be the no. 3 WR behind Edelman and "unlimited upside" Gordon.

    Steelers starting ILB Vince Williams is out for the game against Atlanta on Sunday. Will be interesting to see how he's replaced. Tyler Matakevich is the logical choice, but he's been thoroughly demonized by DWFs and the local media because he didn't run a 4.6 40 at the Combine a couple of years ago. It doesn't matter that he has great instincts and is always around the ball and is a tackling machine. During the preseason every mistake he made was magnified a thousand-fold and though he was touted for a while as being Ryan Shazier's replacement, the only snaps he's taken so far this season have been on special teams. So I'll hope for the best on Sunday when two of the 31 NFL teams that have horrible defenses meet in a game with an over-under of almost 60, but nearly 40 years of watching the NFL from a racially aware perspective tells me Tyler will be greatly underused, and if Pitt loses again he'll somehow be portrayed as a scapegoat if he plays at all.

    Here's a typical nugget I found just now from a DWF writer: It is telling that Matthew Thomas might be the best option on the roster to replace Vince Williams if he cannot play on Sunday, but equally disturbing to acknowledge that the rookie will probably not see a snap on defense in Week 5. When Matakevich drops into coverage against a tight end or running back against the Atlanta Falcons, Steeler Nation should be forgiven for weeping.

    White players are always branded as being poor in coverage. Before the 2012 NFL draft many pundits were saying Kuechly was poor in coverage. I remember watching Kuechly on Draftbreakdown and wondering what they were talking about. Kuechly looked good in coverage and, of course, he was good in coverage in college and in the pros.

    The stereotype in these "analysts" minds is that "white players are not athletic therefore they cannot be good in coverage against black players," who, in their minds, are all athletically superior to
    all white payers. This, of course, is nonsense.

    I wonder how many of these "analysts" actually base their "analysis" on viewing game video and not on stereotypes and what someone else said.

    It's called flat out laziness!!! They think they can just rely on stereotypes instead of actually analyzing.

    Giants tackling is comically bad. A short WR screen ended up going for a 25 yard touchdown with 5 or so affletes tripping over each other and stumbling and bumbling with missed tackle after missed tackle. Blacks make good clowns and court jesters if nothing else.

    McCaffrey has the opportunity to have a big game against this D.

    I’ve seen three different white players (Mauro, Stupar, and Barwin) in on defense for the Ghanaian Giants. Nice to see!

    Colin Jones scores a TD while covering a punt.

    Now the Giants affletes botch a punt return. The live ball was recovered in the end zone by Colin Jones. Touchdown!

    I missed the first Carolina possession. McCaffrey had one carry for about 15 yards and a first down on the next possession. He might have had an opportunity to score but the horrendous Giants coal defense missed four tackles on one play and let the Carolina receiver score.

    Colin Jones recovers a Giants fumble in the endzone and scores a special teams TD.

    Why would Carolina use a first round pick on a RB they are gonna use as a decoy?

    Carolina mostly using CMac as a decoy. Only has 4 carries but has been effective each time. Hopefully they cut the cute crap and give him more carries.

    On their last possession they gave it to him once and he ran for 8 yards on first down. Give him the damn ball.

    McCaffrey runs for 14 yards on first down. The announcer promptly says "anyone could have run through a hole that big."

    Scam kept the ball on third down, runs to the outside, gets hit, and promptly fumbles. The same black announcer starts gushing about Scam's athleticism.

    Eli Manning is becoming the focal point for the Ghanian Giants issues. Pretty humorous if you ask me.

    Earlier this same black announcer, Charles Davis, belittled Colin Jones’ ability to play safety. He said something along the lines of he’s a great special teamer but they had to go out and sign Eric Reid (BLM thug) because of Jones’ struggles. BS.

    Mahomws playing mediocre again - unfortunately Bortles has two INTs and they are down by 20 at the half.
