    I really hope the new coach pushes the ejection button on both Tynog and Manuel and keeps Jones far away on the PS.

    They are all going to be camp arms/backups/short term bridge QBs/ for the rest of their careers.

    Sewerwater will hopefully be 2nd fiddler to Bradford. He would not have had the surprising success of Braford running that offense this year without Peterson and losing Norv Turner.

    Newton's regression should be one of the top headlines of the 2016 season - he had a laughable year considering he was the MVP last season.

    Jameezzz will continue to be inconsistent and play 3rd fiddle in the NFC South to Brees and Ryan as long as they are both still in the league.

    Mariota played well at times and was inconsistent at others. I won't root for him but I won't root against him either - he seems to be a good, humble person and the hype that BSPN gave him in college which annoyed me to no end has been tempered.

    Prescott and Wilson are the only "threats" currently. Wilson has established himself as a quality starting QB. Prescott may continue to be a good player or may face the same issues the Toucan and Gremlin did from the 2012 to 2013 seasons.

    It annoys me that E.T. Hundley and Brissett ended up where they did. I hope in Green Bay Joe Callahan jumps over Hundley on the depth chart and in New England Brissett wallows away on the bench as Brady continues his strong play for the next 2-3 seasons. Brissett was terrible when he was called upon as a rookie and Hundley has not displayed all of that upside and potential as a 1st round pick that BSPN hyped up to be his last year in college.

    Looking towards the draft Deshaun and Deshone will likely be first round picks that will set their teams back for the next few years. Both commit turnovers and are inaccurate at high rate. The NFL draft machine is going to artificially hype up Dobbs and Lifoau for sure but I think the losses mentioned above should temper the quotabacks for another year.

    DWFs seem to think Cam Newton is a top quarterback. Here are some of his stats in 2017. 59.1 pct, 22 TDs, 16INTs, 80.7 quarterback rating. He's not a good starting quarterback.

    Lamar Jackson is next on the list of AA QBs who will fail in the NFL. If he is used as a runner he'll get injured. If he tries to be a pocket passer his inaccuracy and lack of smarts will lead to failure.

    The black supremacists want so bad for Jackson to be a big success in the NFL. It ain't gonna happen.

    A big reason I am pretty much done with the NFL is because of Black QBs being forced on us into the positions they don't deserve. Wilson is about the only one that has been deserving in recent years and some will say that's debatable. It all starts with the College recruiters and now that the college game is, er, HAS gone the route of making Blacks the primary choice at QB in College then the pool of White QB's shrinks and shrinks and shrinks. Lots of good Whites still at QB in College? Sure. But the trend is undeniable. Anyone can see the sport going darker and darker and QB following suit. Whites are the exception in the NBA of course. The NFL is going to be an afterthought when the ratio of Black QBs become the majority or even near it. The writing is on the wall.

    I look forward to seeing Lamar Jackson crash and burn. He pretty much epitomizes every negative stereotype of the black QB... the same type they've been trying to shoehorn into the league for years with piss poor results.

    As for black QB's becoming the majority, I don't see that happening. We've been hearing that crap for nearly 40 years now from the Marxist media mavens and yet it's still white pocket passers that win Super Bowls. Jackson will be the next black QB to supposedly "revolutionize the position" that will end up being a huge flop in the NFL.

    Black QBs like Jackson will not succeed in the NFL. For two simple reasons, things i.e. reads happen too fast for their brains to process. Once that happens, they panic and attempt to run for yardage. Sooner rather than later, that run results in an injury. Case example is RGIII. RGIII is infinitely more intelligent than Jackson. Jackson is a disaster waiting to happen. There are few black QBs who will be able to succeed, like Wilson or Warren Moon. Most are pushed on the league, with the hope that they can be dynamic and revolutionize the position. It never pans out. AHDIW is great example of this crashing and burning.

    When Baker Mayfield gets the nod on Monday to be the Browns new starting QB, this will leave only 4 black starting QB's in the NFL. Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, DeShaun Watson and Dak Prescott, all of whom are middle of the pack performers. The young White QB's have become more mobile in the last few years while retaining all the accuracy, poise, and intelligence that has always kept them at the forefront of QB performance.

    Reversing an ugly trend, Rookie Lamar Jackson was not handed the starting job like so many 'electric' black QB's have in the past.

    The NFL has a bunch of new white superstar QB's to replace Brady and Brees and carry the torch of what HOF QB play should look like.


    This competition is over.


    One question, what race is Pat Mahomes?

    GWTJ, I agree with most of your comments except that White QB's are becoming more mobile in the last few years. I would say that most white QB's have always been mobile ie Tarkenten, Zorn, Young, Starr, Montana, Flutie and many many others it is just that is has been downplayed in the media for many many years. White QB's have always been more poised, intelligent and accurate during games for many decades. Mahomes will get crushed in his next few games and be exposed just like the others....

    Agree completely! Others that should be on your list include, Elway, Harbaugh, Landry, and Staubach. Joe Namath was very mobile until a knee injury at Alabama slowed him down.
    Staubach, Tarkenton, and Young could have been RB's!

    Mahomes is clearly a mulatto. He's the son of very dark skinned, ex-Major League relief pitcher Pat Mahomes, who played 11 season and finished his career with a 5.47 ERA and only 5 saves. After his MLB career he floated around minor leagues for 7 more years, until 2009. Most of that time he was competing in Independent Leagues, probably making less money per year than a Burger King supervisor.

    In the 1st picture, in particular, Mahomes Sr. looks a lot like a current NFL quarterback. Can anyone guess who?

    Hint .... he was a big time draft bust with the Jets and also has huge, flared nostrils.

    Jameis Winston is a sixth black starting QB if he gets his job back, which I expect he will unless Fitzpatrick continues to play at or near the same level he did the first two games. And though not black, Mariota is still around though fading.

    If Fritz destroys the Crawfords, I am pretty confident Fritz stays. Even Fritz's affeletic receivers (DuShawn Jackson) want him to stay so their stats continue to be that of All-Pros.

    Stays all season even if his play drops off? Again, the key is can he stay consistently this good as lack of consistency has been his main issue over the years.

    Let's dispense with the idea that Fitz can keep this level of play all season. Nobody could. He will falter at some point, and the DWF's will do what they do at all points. I hope he torches the Crawfords, plays slightly under par after that, and gets benched in favor of the rapist. The fans deserve their hero.

    Fitzpatrick is making an effort to be a more exciting personality and thus preempt any thoughts of replacing him with Crablegs.

    Fitzpatrick has only thrown for more than 24 TD passes in a season once in his career. He also throws a fair amount of interceptions. He'll falter, but it's a question of how much, and also whether the Bucs keep winning. If they have a legitimate shot at the playoffs they may opt to let Winston sit even if Fitz cools off some, but if they start drifting back toward .500 and he puts up some multiple interception stinkers, Winston will be back in for sure. An almost 36 year old White journeyman vs. a young black QB who was the first pick of the draft isn't much of a competition in the Caste NFL.

    I'm sure the black guy will get back to start sooner or later but he will also definitely louse up again. The only unknown factor is (((what))) it will be he does, not (((if))) he will do something?

    I do think Fitz is more than just an average journey man though. Nearly 28k yards passing, 60% completion 180TDs to 130 something INTs in his career. I'll be cheering him and Tampa on. Be awesome to see Fitz have some success late in his career and play until he's 40.

    Of course Jameis will be handed the job at any sign of Fitz faltering. Dat upside 101.

    Anyone who watches Hard Knocks (as infuriating as the TNB is) could tell you just how dumb both Jameeeeez and Tah-rod Taylor are...always so funny hearing DWF sports guys like Bill Simmons hype up these dullards as "leaders" when your lying eyes tell you otherwise. Jameeeez looks like he's about to have an aneurism anytime he tries to speak in formal English.
