    All of the black QBs have played their week 1 games and the cumulative effort was very poor. The only guy who played very well was Jameez Winston and he faced a terrible Atlanta defense. Wilson got the win but did nothing all game and almost lost to a poor Miami team at home. Prescott was average. No touchdowns but also no turnovers. He did target Witten and Beasley an incredible amount of times so I can't really hate on him. The Gremlin is on a new team but the result is the same. All he do is lose! Tyrod Taylor was laughably bad. Fig Newton also was pretty poor in a losing effort. If you wanna throw in Mariota, he stunk and his team lost too.

    Another year of pushing black QBs in the college ranks and artificially into the NFL and it seems like another year of White quarterbacks mastering the craft as always.

    Nice writeup Freethinker.

    Gremlin got the snot beat out of him today, was fun to see him just get obliterated. I just dont think he is going to hold up, I saw a clip of his press conference and he just looks skinny. Days like today give credence to the theory that the college and NFL game are very different and continue to split apart offensively giving the NFL a lack of quality QBs and the media would rather pump up black college QBs who put up numbers playing in gimmick offenses against terrible defenses and pass them off as NFL ready and the future of the position.

    Robert Gremlin III's Browns lost to a rebuilding Eagles team, throwing for just 190 yards, an INT, and no TD's. I hope he gets pulled ASAP so that TE Gary Barnidge (who had no catches yesterday) has a chance at another 1,000-yard season. Oh, and the Gremlin also has a shoulder injury and needs an MRI...

    CAPTION: Mr. Glass

    Mariota attempted 41 passes and only threw for 271 yards yesterday. The Titans offense, which doesn't have a single white athlete involved other than blocking, is the best known cure for insomnia. They were dominated by a Viking defense that started 4 whites. Their failures are well-deserved.

    Cam Newton was OK against the league's best defense, but not MVP caliber. He lost to a white rookie QB.

    Anus Winston, as much as I loathe the guy, is capable of great performances at times. He might be the best pure passer of the Quotablacks.

    I'd root for Tyrod Taylor to get pulled, but every QB on the roster is also black. This team is doomed and the WR they didn't care enough to re-sign, Chris Hogan, is flourishing with rival NE.

    Russell Wilson escaped with a win over a bad Miami team, but injured his ankle.

    The Gremlin is hurt after one game! Out at least a month, broken corocoid bone in his shoulder.

    Good news for Cody Kessler as he should get an earlier shot to be their starter, though I'm sure they'll go to McCown for now.

    He is on IR so earliest he can come back is week 10. I'm guessing they play with McCown until they are out of contention and than let Kessler finish the season. The gremlin is made of glass and hopefully is on his way out of the league.

    Gary Barnidge's season could be saved after all! McCown, who is also fragile in his own right, threw to Gary early and often in 2015. If McCown or Kessler have any success, RGIII is unlikely to regain his starting spot. One less Quotablack...

    Gremlin just isn't built to play qb at the NFL level. Without weights he would probably be a skinny track athlete. If you notice guys like Farve and Manning had a husky build to them when they had their iron man streaks. Gremlin looks like he should be modeling for Calvin Kline. Gremlin could always star in a remake of this film.....

    Hue Jackson is a believer in Kessler. He excelled in the short to medium passing game at USC which the gremlin struggled with yesterday. IMO the best thing would be Kessler getting thrown into the fire when ready and have a season to build on.

    I just read a post from a Bills' DWF where he says the Bills should tank the season so they can draft a top qb next year. Which qb's do you suppose he listed, why DeShaun and DeShone of course. Do these morons lack the ability to recognize the most basic of patterns?

    Btw how does someone with the first name DeShone end up with the last name Kizer ?

    It's the sheer idiocy and irrational mindset of the dwf who has been fully indoctrinated into the caste system.

    Chad Kelly has been the best qb through two games so far in terms of the top qbs coming into the season. One would think that bills fans mightwant to tap into the Kelly family for another potential franchise qb like they had with his uncle.

    Let's hope the rails continue to come off
    this bills team and they clean house.

    Chad Kelly to the Bills makes so much sense. Which is why it will never happen

    This season has shown that the running QB is not sustainable. Midget has been hobbled all year. Cam is crying about the accumulation of hits, including the goal line bell-ringer that cost him a game in the concussion protocol. Thursday night, Rapeis Winston had a horribly awkward run on a 2 point conversion attempt resulting in a big hit and had to leave the game. Tyrod has to run because 200 yards a game passing won't cut it. Luck learned the hard way, but he can easily throw for 4000+ yards. So, these teams that want a Gremlin, Deshaun, or Lamar as their QB, it's an investment that's good for 2-3 years at best. Why would any franchise want a Brees, Brady, Rorthlisberger, Rivers, etc... for 10-15 years of consistent production?

    I slightly disagree, running QB is sustainable, you just have to treat it like the RB position, dont regard it as anything more than a three year investment, basically plug and play. invest in your oline etc, dont waste high draft picks on running QB's pick them up where they fall

    As this site predicted both Pryor and Thomas have busted out as running quaterbacks(before even injuries have blunted their abilities to run well). What I don't get is why Thomas was scooped up off the Lions practice squad by the Bills to be a healthy scratch for the rest of the year while he learns the nuances of playing tight end in the NFL.

    Ps this shows that in most cases the scouts of the 70's and 80's were right in converting virtually all of the college dual threat quarterbacks into other positions at the NFL level as most are just too piss poor at throwing accurately at the NFL level. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9354/logan-thomas

    What a day for the quotabacks!!! You know it's bad news when today's headliner is Tyrod Taylor, who somehow managed to throw for over 200 yards, for only the 5th time this season. Taylor finished his banner day with 228 yards, 2 TDs and an INT. Amazingly, that's about as good as it got for the seven quotabacks that took the field this afternoon:

    RG3 -- 12/28 104 yards, INT. He's finished...
    Krapernik -- 15/26 133 yards, TD. Amazingly, this pedestrian performance probably bought him another week as the starter.
    Rapeis -- 16/26 184 yards. struggled against a laughable Saints defense; he's actually playing at a decent level this year, but I don't care for rapists...
    sCam -- 10/27 160 yards, TD, INT. ah, the reigning league MVP....
    Wilson -- 22/39 240 yards, TD, 5 INTs. ....but...but, he's elite, I swear!!...
    Prescott -- 17/37 165 yards, TD, 2 INTs. The golden boy looked very ordinary against a pretty average defense.

    In assessing the quotaback situation in the league I think we are going to see a small drop off in quotaback starters. Quotabacks Deshone and Deshaun will likely be overdrafted but it would still be a next loss of 1 if everything goes as I predict below.

    - It looks like the Gremlin is finally done - he may be a spot starter type/career journeyman (so much for him being better than Andrew Luck LMAO).
    - Krapernick is done in San Francisco and may be out of the NFL after this season due to his activities directly correlating to the NFL ratings fall.
    - Idler Arm is due 27.5 million if he is still on the roster in March. This is one of the stupidest contracts I have ever seen. The numbers are 6 years 92 Million dollars - that is what the Bills under Whaley have done - Why isn't Whaley being laughed out of the league for this is beyond me (Chris Hogan's success in New England is also making Whaley look like a fool). If they keep him on the roster Taylor is owed 27.5 million dollars - what has he done to prove he is worth that?? Absolutely nothing. The downside is that the Oaf Cardale Jones is viewed as the heir apparent. I think the only way to avoid that is by a total regime change from the GM/Head coach - a gutting of the organization.

    Scam's regression should be a huge story as Peyton Manning's was last year. Of course Manning lost to father time and was an elite/dominant QB for 17 seasons in the league where as Scam should be in the peak of his career yet has regressed - he is completing 53.5% of his passes this season. In Seattle it looks like the defensive foundation is slowly breaking up - Seattle has been lucky in a few games this year and I really don't think the midget will be capable of long term success as the focal point of the offense without a strong running game/defense to support him. As for Prescott I won't be surprised if he regresses like the rest of the quotabacks seem to do after initial success in the league (Gremlin and Krapernick are the two prime examples). I would like to see Zach Martin leave Dallas and hopefully see the impact to the O-line because that will expose Prescott IMO.

    It should be a big story. How do you go from winning the MVP(undeservedly) to the lowest qb rating of your career? Of course, the media and dwf's will spin this as sCam being a victim of circumstance. Afterall, they did everything possible to hype him up last season. I wouldn't expect them to throw him under the bus just yet.

    Good to see those in the comments section aren't buying this as the next great QB rivalry. These black QB wunderkinds are almost never good as advertised.
