    David Sills signs with Giants. A real dumb move by the Bills to cut him. Daniel Jones will be getting a nice weapon for years to come.

    Sills is being signed to the practice squad, Giants are low on receivers and don’t have many big names. Hopefully Sills can impress and make it to the 53.

    Erik Harris is a half-white half-black mix. . .

    Any news on AJO? I really think he could be a Danny Woodhead type of running back but with a little bit more power. He is a bruiser for a shorter guy. Someone needs to give
    this kid a chance. He rushed for over 4000 yards in college. That says he is a star and very durable/reliable.

    If I could guess, he is 1//4 black, the rest white.

    Right, I should have just written mixed because he's mostly a white kid, but likely doesn't think of himself that way due to social pressure and other conformist bs.

    Right, but Giants receivers seem injury prone. He may get a shot to get promoted this season. He also happens to have an experienced and successful WR coach, so he probably landed in better situation.

    While I don't disagree on Nall's obvious ability, I'll call you out on saying no to 8 grand a week. I'm sure his agent sent the feelers out and came back empty (assuming he has a competent agent). He wasn't claimed, he had no interest from the other teams so he would essentially be saying no to not only money, but also being a pro NFL player.

    I've written a lot about how CF has influence but I don't think it extends to players and their agents, and the people who read but hate CF will keep the players and agents in the dark about it.

    Yes, I've been wanting to ask the question as to why and how did Laird make the Dolphins, but Nall couldn't make the Bears. I think Nall's measurables were better than Laird's, plus he's bigger? Plus, I think Nall was overall more impressive than Laird in pre season.
    ...or is it that Laird is safe because he's not the big, strong, fast, White RB type that the NFL doesn't want to see blow up the caste system as written in JB Cash's column?
    Could someone put up Nall's and Laird's combine numbers here or on the combine thread. I can't find Lairds?

    Nall Pro Day results
    6'2, 235lbs.
    40: 4.52
    Vert: 34
    NFL combine:
    BJ 10'02
    3 cone: 6.95
    20 yard shuttle: 4.16

    Laird Pro Day results
    6'0 205?
    40: 4.56
    3 cone: 6.84
    20 yard shuttle: 3.96
    BJ: 10'0

    Nall's combine numbers are as good or better when comparing apple to apples. Nall ran a 4.58, 40 at the NFL combine to Lairds 4.56, pro day. Pro days are generally hand timed. As Nall ran a 4.52, 40 at his pro day.

    Would you rather have to stop a guy 6'2 235lb's with 4.52 speed and agility or a guy 6'0 205 with 4.56 speed? I think theirs room for both.

    I guess we can beat this to death, but Nall should be a starting RB in the NFL, period!

    McCaffrey is faster than Jon Arnett and doesn't have the acrobatic moves Arnett had.

    Jon Arnett was considered a great runner (and receiver-kick returner) at his best, but after his second year (1958) the Rams went into a morass of losing.

    Harris grew up without a father, and his mother, Christine Higgins, is a race-mixing mudshark who has numerous other black sons (presumably all from different black sperm donors), all of whom look unmistakably mulatto. Erik is the oldest.

    Harris certainly passes the “DWF eye test,” especially when his hair is short. Whatever black genes he has do not appear to have been passed on to his kids, all of whom have bright blue eyes and straight, platinum blonde hair...

    Giants released the overrated one dimensional Linebacker BJ Goodson. Word is they will sign former Gettleman player David Mayo who can both play linebacker and special teams. A good move!

    Hoyer to the Colts - 3 years 12 million - 9 million guaranteed.

    Goodson was actually traded to the Packers - the initial report was he was cut - hopefully not at the expense of a white player's roster spot.

    Mayo should of been a starter for the 49ers - total BS move that he was cut. I believe the Giants now have Mayo and Connolly as LBs on the roster. Their D-line is still all ghanian though.

    Sounds like that screws Chad Kelly from making any starts this season.

    That must have happened when she left LA for Baltimore. MS's are disgusting.

    Kelly is a bit of a wildcard moreso due to his past bonehead off the field antics. Brissett could get injured or stink so Hoyer is a solid dependable presence. Kelly did play really way in the preseason but honestly you can't rely on him to be a #2 QB until he shows he has matured. I would say the Hoyer signing is the Colts essentially calling their own bluff on how Brissett is some magical savior QB that they have full confidence in.

    Good post. That's a good way at looking at it. You are right about Kelly. He has to get by at least a full season without being a bonehead.

    Harry got injured after playing a total of 3 snaps in the first preseason game. Not kidding. He’s on short-term IR, so he could be back for the second half of the season. Demaryius Thomas was re-signed to take his place.

    Bills actually looking into Viking bust Treadwell, but they wouldn't keep Sills? Boy these teams are dumb.
