    The 2021 regular season kicks off tonight with the Buccaneers facing the Cowboys. Brady's campaign for number eight gets officially underway, and hopefully we see lots of Gronk action. Unlikely to see much Miller, although I am holding out for some second half action after Brady demolishes the Cowboys' defense. Nothing to remark upon on the defensive side of the ball for the Bucs, except maybe some garbage time rotation for Patrick O'Connor.
    The main thing I'll be watching for the Cowboys is Dak's performance, who in my opinion is the most overrated fraud in the league. Still, keeping in line with quotaback tendencies expect mainstream media worship when he pads his stats in garbage time after trailing Tampa 45-14. We have Van Der Esch on the Cowboys' defense, who unfortunately missed much of last year. I'm looking forward to his hopefully stellar comeback year, and a Joe Schobert type trade in the next offseason to a more white-friendly team (Minnesota would be beautiful in my opinion with an LVE-Harrison Smith duo).
    Things to hope for: Brady-Gronk dominance, Scotty Miller appearance, Brate picking up a few snaps to alleviate Gronk, LVE carrying the coal black defense for Dallas, LOTS of Dak sacks and interceptions.

    Gonna be exciting!

    Hoping for some embarrasing screwups from the Dallas offense. Don’t care for Dak, Lamb, Cooper, Eziekel and the rest.

    It was nice to see TB12 addressing the issue of overprotected offensive players!

    Prescott is actually the only quotaback that I don't really mind all that much. The hype he receives is relatively minimal compared to the likes of Watson and Jackson (two guys who never learned how to read a defense and just tuck it and run if their first read isn't open) Watson is the king garbage time stat padding. If given the choice I would take Prescott over Watson any day.

    This is addressed to no one in particular and everyone in general, for this thread and all threads in all forums:

    Let's keep in mind the primary purpose of Caste Football, which is to root for and cheer on the talent, accomplishments and potential of White players while also continuing to point out, with illustrations and evidence when possible, the discrimination that exists against White athletes via the Caste System.

    Note I wrote "primary" and not "sole." It's about perspective and proportionality. Personally, I don't want to read about every mistake Black players make, especially Black quarterbacks, or how many clever derogatory nicknames can be thought up for them. White players screw up too. And it's not only Black QBs who turn out to be busts. I want to be uplifted by what the lunchpail carrying overachievers with non-stop motors are doing, and since it's my site my opinion matters. I think one reason posting is on the uptick for the most part and we're getting some quality new posters in spite of the near total blackout of CF by search engines is because those posters that were motivated primarily by their dislike of Blacks are no longer here, or at least better understand what Caste Football strives to be about.

    The reality is that Black QBs are here to stay, the NFL is not going to return to the days of 30 White starting QBs. College programs have been going out of their way for decades now to recruit and give Black QBs lots and lots of opportunities, as well as tailoring offenses to their strengths. Under those circumstances it's almost impossible that some of them wouldn't succeed in the NFL. If White running backs were recruited like that and given even half the opportunities Black QBs get, the NFL would have lots of White running backs. Same for the other positions that are verboten to Whites.

    It's about the Caste System. Raising awareness of it is what we do, through intelligence, common sense and direct and indirect evidence, not by tearing down the beneficiaries of it but by advocating for fairness for our White brothers and sisters.

    @Don Wassall Thank you for the insight Don. My issues with Dak go more along with his contract and the amount of money the Cowboys are paying him for a mediocre product rather than his race. I understand your perspective and will attempt to minimize emphasis on Black screwups in the future.

    Reinhardt, glad you found your way here, you seem like a quality addition and I hope you become a regular poster.

    My post above is one I've been thinking about and was going to write for a few days now, it's not directed at any individual posters in this or any other thread. For the most part everyone in our posting community understands what we're trying to do and respects that, but at times we slip a bit in what I consider to be the wrong direction (I think all the insanity and stress going on around us in society contributes to it) and an occasional reminder is helpful.

    BLM, CRT and all the other racial lunacy going on has created a lot more White awareness than previously existed. But most, for example, Trump supporters are just beginning to comprehend the agenda and narratives behind the big picture and not just when it comes to race. The way to win more of them over when it comes to sports is through presenting our case positively rather than fulfilling the negative stereotypes out there of racially aware White people, which unfortunately are sometimes true. We need to stand for our beliefs in a positive way that is respectful to non-Whites and not fall into the negative trap of tit for tat identity politics that benefit only the oligarchical interests that promote kneejerk racial hatred and division.

    Great post!
    I take some responsibility. Back from my hiatus I should do better

    Btw, if you’re interested it would be great to record a podcast episode for my swedish show Passningen (The Pass) with you. In Passningen we talk about sports without political correctness.
    An episode where you can elaborate on the caste system in american football for our swedish listeners would be very much appreciated.
    Don’t know if you remember but I did a show with James Edwards a while back and that’s how I found out about this site.

    Drop me a message if you’re interested!

    Would be nice for the pale face back ups on D to get a few sightings tonight.

    Really hope LVE can stay fit, as he's a top 10, potentially top 5 player when he is. Really hard to see him follow the same faith as Sean Lee.

    Insane to think Tom Brady is going to be taking the field again. Enjoy every second of him folks !

    TB is ofc showing some signs of ageing but just as you say we should enjoy every second.

    Was there a discussion on the forum about his comments on the overprotection of offensive players and how that is a very negative influence on the sport?

    I don't recall anything in-depth, but could be mistaken.

    People just want attacking play. It's happening in a lot of sports. Football/Soccer has gotten worse every year the last 20 years.

    The tradition of the sports, stand no chance Vs the almighty dollar.

    Looks like another Baltimore running back tore an ACL... that is now 3 injured running back, 1st, 2nd and 3rd on their depth chart. They have brought has-been Le’veon Bell in.

    sure would be a good time to pick a big, strong back with polished hands and good pass protection. Where oh where could they find one? I wonder if the Bears have their most talented back stashed away on their PS...

    Yeah, not too shabby for a 44 year old.

    Fournette and Ronald Jones both have hands of stone. That's why the Bucs brought in Gio Bernard to be Brady's James White, but he doesn't even have a touch yet.

    The uniform number changes just give a bad optic.


    Brady with a bomb for the long TD to the infantile manchild.

    Brady with 213 yards and 3 TDs in the first half, simply fantastic!

    Yup Fournette costs Brady an INT!

    Zuerlein with some early struggles kicking already. He's left 4 points off the board!

    Yeah this Cowboys Defense is much improved with superhero LB Micah Parsons! Still getting tore up!

    I think the Cowboys secondary will be pretty bad all year. It really does amaze me how wide open these receivers are on the short routes though - these are not hard throws to complete.

    Gholston injured, may mean some PT for O'Connor.

    Nelson is still on the roster but I haven't seen him yet. I did spot Brent Urban on the field briefly for the Cowboys.

    Good to see Urban resurface with Dallas. He's been injury plagued, but always looks solid when out there.

    Yes. He's listed as an backup outside linebacker.

    He's playing out of position. His best position is as a 4-3 defensive end.
