    A real barn burner in store for us tonight with the disappointing 1-7 49ers against the perpetually dysfunctional 1-6 Raiduhs. Not sure it it's worth bothering to tune in to it or not.

    If I watch, I will be pulling for the 49ers. It's surprising that Gruden bombed so far this season. On a side note, everyone here has to believe that Al Davis' son looks retarded.

    Nick Mullens looking good in his debut as 49er! 1st career TD Pass!

    It helps to be playing against a high school level defense made up solely of "the world's greatest athletes."

    I hadn't watched the Raiders much this season and all I can say is, what a garbage team on both sides of the ball. And Derek Carr excels at ignoring Jordy, who should be getting a minimum of 10 targets a game.

    Amazing catch and run by Kittle. The best TE of the 2017 "most athletic TE class of all time".

    Would've been nice if Troy or Joe had mentioned Kittle's obvious speed on his big play. He's faster than many black WRs in the league.

    It's hilarious how empty that stadium is.

    The raiders O-line was rumored to have purposely sand bagged last year because Carr wasn't down with kneeling. Well it looks like the whole team has quit this year. Why Carr ignores Jordy is so much is baffling. It's not there are other offensive weapons on the team that need the ball.

    Cassius Marsh has another half a sack giving him 1.5 sacks on the night! I know some people on here don't support him because of his wigger lifestyle, but he is white and he's put together a decent season after being a journey man purge candidate.

    Btw what happened to CJ Beathard he was having a pretty good season? I've honestly never heard of Nick Mullens before tonight, but so far so good.

    I think he is out with an injury. Mullens was a pretty prolific QB at Southern Miss - I did not think he would make it to an NFL roster due to his supposed lack of size - I am happy to say I was wrong.

    Good for him, but if he can make it why are Chad Kelly and Paxton Lynch free agents??

    Wish I had a good answer to that question. Kelly was is guilty of being a bonehead while white. Lynch is just getting a bum rap - not sure how a QB who was viewed by several teams as a first round pick two years ago and never embarrassed himself in his very limited performances can just be written off.

    The Clay Travis twitter threads on the Raiduhs has been merciless from many separate angles. One angle that hasn't been made apparent is the NFL is sinking under the social justus movement's tidal wave.

    The Raiders as a team just quit on the field. Not surprising to see since they are the blackest team in the league. Self-motivation seems to be lacking with these players for some reason. ;) Perhaps if Gruden had actually kept some of the honkies that he had on the team in pre-season rather than giving in to the racist GM and grumbling locker room he might actually be getting some effort out on the field.

    A few crackers out there working hard would actually cause the blacks to put more effort in as they wouldn't want to be shown up by whitey. It would have been a win-win, but no, racist NFL and locker room politics win, everyone else loses.

    Crap defenses are basically the law of the land now. Everyone is so accustomed to it now nobody makes a stink. At times I wonder what the hell am I watching? This isn't the football I grew up with that is for damn sure. It is bad there is no other way to spin it.

    Seems to me the next coming of Travis Kelce, George Kittle, is battling some sort of injury or two. He was out of the game for a spell then returned and then gingerly left the field and never returned. Hopefully it is not serious. He has battled nagging injuries for the one and a half years he has been in the NFL.

    The Jordy situation is downright depressing. He was in and out of the lineup too. Lot of confusion over there in Raiders land.

    It's hard to turn around a franchise or any endeavor where the inmates run the asylum and are accustomed to running it. With Clueless Hue and Black Jack after him, the inmates ran the asylum with the "warden" simply being another inmate. Gruden literally needs to blow up the prison here, capsize the ship. Make every single position "open" regardless of draft position or salary cap number. That would actually work and result in a functional team, but in today's Negro Football League it's a near impossibility.

    Stefon Diggs should be out today. Hopefully this means significant time for Beebe or Zylstra. I'd rather see more of Zylstra. Beebe however proved to be more than adequate leading the team in the preseason in receiving. Pretty much all Viking fans have been begging for the end of the Laquan Treadwell experiment. I have seen multiple facebook post now from normies demanding that Vikings play Beebe and/or Zylstra and dump Ladropwell. How obvious does it have to be when even the normies get it?

    Watching Dropwell run is painful to watch.

    Denver MLB Brandon Marshall is out for today's game, which means Josey Jewell should get to play the entire game. Last week Marshall was listed as questionable and split reps with Jewell. Hopefully Josey has a nice game and speeds up his racial apprenticeship and becomes the starter going forward. I see him being a tackling machine close to or on a par with Chris Borland, another Big 12 LB who was disparaged for not being able to run 40 yards in a straight line in shorts fast enough.
