    Up this week is what passes for a good game in the caste NFL. A battle for the AFC South lead between the Colts and the Texans. Watson vs. BBQ Brissett sounds wretch-inducing to me. Outside of Jack Doyle-TE for the Colts I don't think there is nary a paleface to be seen on either of these teams. Really glad I'm traveling and won't have access to TV for this one.

    Enjoy, I guess.

    I don't think I'll be traveling tonight and will have access to a TV, but like you I will not watch one second of this garbage. Real problem for me is I don't which team to root against? I guess a 10-10 tie would be the best case scenario?

    Just as a side note, a few months ago I brought up the fact that all three of Houston top Major League teams, as well as their MLS team (Dynamo), went from being very (Texans, Astros) or fairly white friendly* (Rockets) to being basically all non-white. Between those four teams combined, not sure you can come up with 7 white starters on a game-to-game basis? I'd say in most cities that have teams in those 4 sports, the white starters would come to at the very least 17 to 19?


    P.S: When I say white friendly, I mean relative to the other teams in their respective leagues. For example, early in J.J. Watt's career, the Texans were a very rare majority white team (26 players) for a very short while -- a few weeks?

    A 10-10 tie with both QBs putting up under 200 yards each and multiple interceptions would be good, I figure. No way I’d watch it though.

    Just hoping both quotabacks crap the bed. That’s really the only positive outcome for this game.

    I am going to watch a little college football tonight. The second half of Georgetown basketball. And at 9:00 juggle the Duke and Arizona basketball games. The NFL game tonight has reached my NO ZONE. Usually I can find something in an NFL game to keep me engaged in varying degrees but not tonight.

    Just got to a restaurant, watching the game at the bar. Looks like a real barnburner 3-0 Houston. Just saw the amazing BBQ chuck the ball to nobody. Such elite talent!

    Very next play after the punt, the stupendous Duhshon throws a pick. Oh yeah, future of the pozishun obvious on both teams.

    Halftime score box shows a snoozefest. This is supposed to be the future of the NFL?

    Without JJ Watt and Andrew Luck, the average DWF couldn’t name any players on these two teams. It’s a classic game of terrible quotabacks vs terrible all black secondaries.

    The busted coverage on the Texans’ first half TD was atrocious. A White safety would have been publicly ridiculed, benched, and cut. The anonymous black defensive back (ABDB) is impervious to criticism or consequences.

    Aikman basically describing Brissett’s skill set as that of a game manager without uttering the word. I think that’s about as far as an announcer can go in describing a black QB without getting in trouble. I give Troy some credit at least.

    Guys give the game a chance, it reminds me of Army vs Navy. Basically if two Black quarterbacks are on opposite teams defenses will look stout and the secondaries will look competent and passing statistics will resemble the days of Sid Luckman.....

    PS, Watson is starting to heat up, bye jove you got it Watson!

    Of the two quotabacks, Watson is light years ahead of BBQ as a passer. Still want them both to fail badly though.

    Made it to my hotel, the game isn't nearly as interesting here. Much more fun bashing the poor play with other guys at the bar. Besides, the bartender was very cute, so what game??

    Brissett is kinda awful. The only reason that they've scored at all in this game is because they have a good offensive line and can run the ball.

    Brissett is what he is - a black game manager - the media can't/won't call him that. I want to compare him to Case Keenum but Keenum had that great run with the Vikings 2 seasons ago which I do not think Brissett could ever duplicate. The Colts will be a middling franchise with him at the helm and he can't fill the void created when Luck retired.

    That was the first time I've watched Brissett for an entire game and it's actually a great compliment to even call him a game manager. He often had lots of time to throw but couldn't locate receivers downfield, usually throwing very short passes with the receivers having to make shoestring catches while falling to the turf for completions. He wasn't able to lead anyone, just throw passes to receivers who were just standing there a short distance away (or falling to the turf trying to make the catch). The Indy receivers admittedly suck with their only good one T. Y. Hilton playing on a tender calf, but with that excellent o-line, Andrew Luck (who mostly played behind poor ones) would have a field day. If Indy doesn't upgrade at quarterback they'll never be a serious contender with Brissett.

    Interesting while I was driving home I stumbled across a sports talk discussion where they were talking about "which team in the AFC South could you see winning a Super Bowl?" Houston was mentioned as a possibility, albeit slight, just because of Watson. The Titans and Jaguars were dismissed out of hand. When Indy was brought up I was shocked when they said that the Colts have the team to do it.......with Andrew Luck at QB. They said no way with BBQ Brissett. I'm sure that they next time I drive through that area, there will be new sports talkers since these raycissts will have been fired.

    TE Jaeden Graham, who I had never heard of, has a 53 yard reception for the Atlanta Falcons.

    Panthers look like they’ve quit. Absolutely brutal defensive backfield. A moron special teamer ran into his teammate who was trying to make a fair catch.

    The Panthers and CMac are having a tough go of it today, down early 14-0 to the Saints. At least if it's a loss, though costly, won't be against "the future of the League", just a future Hall of Famer....

    Crab Legs with another interception.

    For Miami, the illustrious Kalen Ballage has 4 carries for 2 yards which is slightly below is average. Cracka Patrick Laird with zero carries so far.

    Maxx Crosby just had a sack taken away by an absolutely phantom roughing the passer call.
