    Yeah he’s not a bad guy which is pretty easy to see. I’ve had the chance to meet him a couple times when he was in college. I can understand where y’all are coming from though, but as a huge Texas Tech guy I love the dude. If I wasn’t a Texas Tech alumni I probably wouldn’t give a damn about him.

    You mean to tell me he didn't act like a diva on the field at Texas Tech? You even look at him sideways now he begs the zebras for a flag.

    Nah he didn’t really act like that because our team was terrible at the time and he was just a regular dude. But I can’t blame the man, just about every QB or WR tries to beg for a flag any time they’re hit or touched these days. I miss the high school days where we just played and the refs wouldn’t baby the QB’s.

    The town he grew up in is 95% white so he has pretty much been around white people his entire life which is why he doesn’t act like an idiot. He was actually discovered when coaches came to scout his teammate Dylan Cantrell who was a year older.

    It’s a strange position to come here and somewhat defend Mahomes, a site where we support white athletes. Now, it’s totally understandable not to root for the guy, I’m certainly not rooting for him to throw for 6000 yards and 60 TDs and break every QB record.

    But I also don’t hate the guy. He seems like a good kid by all indications. And on top of that, he’s turned into one of the top QBs in the NFL. Any suggestion that his success is due a dumbed down system is ridiculous. That means you should be able to turn any bum off the street into an NFL MVP if you just “dumb down the system”. Mahomes has shown some serious ability and talent to so far succeed in playing the most difficult position in sports. It’s largely because he’s half white and plays the game like a white QB, from the pocket.

    The irrational hatred of him by some here is puzzling. Maybe it’s some of the incessant worship by the uncle Chris types or over exposure in general that’s fueling it.

    Correct! I do not want him to supersede a QB like Brady, but come on, he has excelled. I always tell friends that the QB in NFL and being an elite boxer fighting other elite fighters is the most difficult sportsman in sports. Like I said, four years from now, we shall see where he is at.

    Kyle Allen is now the first undrafted QB since 1999 to win his first four starts. Kurt Warner was the last.

    In spite of the zebras every attempt to keep KC in the game, the Colts played good D. Only way limptime mahomes could make any big plays was rolling outside the pocket as the colts D-line had his number.

    Colts win. I am happy for Frank Riech. I remember watching him engineering the greatest comeback playing QB for the Buffalos in defeating the Oilers in 1992. I was stationed in P-Cola, I watched that game in its entirety

    He has done a solid job. He will probably need the Panthers to make the playoffs to stave off sCam from retaking the job.

    Kyle Allen has still has not thrown an interception in his short career. These games are huge for him as they will likely determine his future in the NFL. I just hope he becomes “the guy” for a team which will hopefully be the Panthers. Send Newton away or demote him to backup, it would probably be best for all parties involved. Generic Panthers fans probably have no clue Allen was the #1 QB coming out of high school a few years back.

    Mahomes is really good, as a site we’d be viewed as delusional for stating otherwise. Im not rooting for him but he doesn’t bother me at all like a Scam or Gremlin would.

    I’d be interested to see how Mahomes would perform in a different system (like say the inept Dolphins or Jets) without a very good offensive HC in Reid, but the same could be said for if Brady was drafted by the Jets or Dolphins - just Belichick still have ) SBs, does the rest of the AFC East still have 0 since 2000? Does Rodgers become the undisputed GOAT if he played his career under Belichick? Does Wilson thrive with a better supporting cast, or does standing out so much in a bad offense help him look better? Some things we’ll never know.

    I give capable black QBs like Mahomes and Russell Wilson credit where credit is due, but I'll admit I smile whenever either one of them throws an interception. Not to be against them personally, just to weaken the Caste narrative that blacks are going to "take over" the QB position from whitey.

    Colts win despite a lackluster performance from BBQ Brisket.

    Josh Allen quietly leads the Bills to a 4-1 record.

    Best football scene of the day, even better than C-Mac's amazing performance, was Kirk Cousins (and Adam Thielen) making a big statement in response to their critics.

    Agreed. BTW, La France, 2nd time asking. Is that you in your avatar? If so, kudos.

    Redskins fired Gruden - my guess is we will have yet another quotaback starting now in Haskins.

    Bingo!! I was thinking the same thing. Turns out Niemann "only" finished second on the team in tackles with 10, 6 of them solo, behind Damien Wilson but well ahead of everyone else on the KC defense. But he didn't play the entire game either, an excellent showing.

    It's so predictable -- White guy "unexpectedly" plays well on defense but is given no credit or is dismissed as a career backup/special teams type. The Chiefs' DWFs were undoubtedly alarmed when the paleface had to come into the game, his presence so noticeable in comparison to all the "real" defensive players on the field (22 out of 22 when the game started though Daniel Sorensen also played some as did Margus Hunt of Indy).

    And it's no wonder defenses now in the NFL are so piss poor and pathetic, especially the DBs who absolutely suck and nary a White face among them. But you Defensive Coordinators, oh no, don't dare give Whitey a shot, unless there's no other alternative. These anti-White system pukes nowadays would have Jack Lambert and Randy White on Special Teams. It's the Caste System, guys.

    Right BFU. I had almost stopped watching the NFL period. Just relying on CF to let me know what white players were in the league and how they were doing. But because I live in NC and can see CMAC every week, it has peeked my interest a little more and it's incredible how bad the DB's are at tackling and also a lot of missed interceptions because they can't catch.
    I did see Carolina's white Safety Colin Jones square up on a punt returner from Jacksonville. Perfectly executing a tackle in yesterday's game. He was getting to start a little last season, but one missed coverage and he was yanked. However, I've seen the current Panther Safety burned quite often this year. Last week even the announcer Ronde Barber, who is fair, commented on how Carolina's Safety was getting burned.
    Because of the perceived notion that whitey can't play DB over the last 30 years or so, those positions have been taken over by blacks and there's no longer enough white players to fill in when a black player continues to get beat.
    When at that rare moment some defensive coordinator has had enough, he only has another black to fill the position in most cases.
    I'm getting a little concerned that is what's slowly happening at the QB position. Someone help me here and tell me that will never happen?
    Please.

    Maxx Crosby played every single defensive snap except one yesterday. He also got his first sack after having a breakout game last week. He has outshined 4th overall Clelin Ferrell in every aspect, does this mean Crosby was a top 10 talent? He is more athletic than Ferrell at the same size, what is he missing? Dark skin and attending Clemson seems to be the only thing Ferrell has that Crosby doesn’t.

    The entire college recruiting agenda is to get rid of the the White QB and replace him with Blacks. Look at College ball. The writing is on the wall and getting bigger all the time. Pro ball currently is the worst product in the League's history.

    Happy to hear Maxx is coming along with the Raiders. That game with the Bears felt like a crossing of ships. The once all caste Raiders who are whitening up as top talent TE Foster Moreau is also starting to emerge. They were making fun of Foster's name but even I have to admit it does have a snooty upper class air to it. Ha.Meanwhile the Bears are emulating the Raiders of a few years ago with a full scale black locker room dominated caste team. Nice outcome. Jon Gruden's post game speech was funny as he went on about time zones and such.

    Other things that caught my attention. Was able to watch most of the Vikings game and I guess the Kirk Cousins death watch has to be put on hold for at least another week. Like the posts above so happy Thielen got to break loose. Begs the question why don't they come out for all games with guns a blazing? Why instill a cork up the ass conservative game plan that ignores one of the most fluid and dynamic players in the NFL in Thielen? Catching difficult balls and swerving around defenders like a downhill skier.

    Jerry Hall ex Jagger gal is married to 88 year old media mogul Rupert Murdoch. They were at the Cowboys game and what a weird pairing. She is 63 and still "not bad." In her day she was gorgeous. Murdoch looks like he just crawled out of a grave.

    Not buying it. Ravens S Earl Thomas apologizing after deliberate skull shot. BS. Meanwhile Clay Matthews breathes on Russell Wilson Thursday and gets penalized.

    Nice that the Panthers are winning but if you get a chance watch the final play. As the pass is in the air every one looks like their feet are in cement but Kuechly quickly diagnoses the whole flight of the ball tears across the field and bats the ball down as if to say get that damn thing out of my way. True linebacker mentality.

    Will the Redskins revert to their down the line caste ways again now that Jay Gruden was fired? I am noticing a disturbing trend. These owners and upper management seem to have short leashes for coaches who draft white skill players. This might be the reason so many coaches follow the caste blueprint knowing if they choose too many white players their room for error is lessened. Thus it casts a pall on everything.

    If cornered I would say in general that coaches are more open to fielding white skill players than management.

    Belongs in the news department but my understanding is Kraft is the one who rightfully got rid of Antonio Brown. BB wanted to keep him. Say what you will about Kraft, who has taken sides with Brady over BB in the past, he has a good track record when it comes to white skill players. That places him in a distinct minority.

    One last thing. I demand an explanation. Bucs speedster Scott Miller was allowed to touch the ball and run for a nifty 18 yards without a penalty? And a coach designed a play for him? This nonsense has to stop otherwise the NFL will be run over with a bevvy of white skill players that number anywhere between four to seven. Cripes what is this world coming to?

    IMO Snider gave Gruden a long rope to hang himself, it's not Gruden's fault that his star qb went down in a freak accident, he and management went out and got the best available qb on the free agent market. What's his fault is not building any currency to ride out this mediocre run since the Smith accident. What was he at best with Washington? Maybe Jeff Fisher? That doesn't cut it if you want to keep your job in ultra Skins crazy D.C.

    It will be interesting to see who they get to coach Snyder's toy Haskins, if the coach is a tool for Snyder Haskins will play and probably s*&t the bed, if the coach has legitimate roster control we may see another Chosen Rosen situation in D.C where either Tua or Herbert gets selected by a team that will be lucky to win more than 1 game.

    Here is Michael Lombardi ripping the Redskins front office a couple of weeks ago. He doesn't really mention Gruden as the problem which is pretty reassuring!

    I honestly do not think we would be that lucky to see a 1st round quotaback pushed out the door after a year. My guess would be that they will try to go after one of the young white cuck head coaches in college - Ryan Day/Lincoln Riley to save his latest precious quotaback and try to implement an offensive system that does not work in the NFL (see the Cardinals). Haskins ceiling is Jason Campbell. Snyder is a toxic entity within the organization - a billionaire jock sniffer - he surrounds himself with yes men in the front office. As Lombardi said in that interview the do not develop players. What he does not say is that they have been one of the strictest followers of the caste system in Snyder's 20 years as an owner. I believe Chris Cooley, Matt Bowen and Reed Doughy were the only outliers for several years until Apke and Quinn. They botched the Kirk Cousins issue as well.
