    I doubt smiff with start the entire season. I wouldn't be shocked to see them draft a qb. Hell even Sanchez could get the ball to Decker plenty if he really is the number #1. They jets maybe inept but you don't pay someone that kind of money not to at least try to get them the ball.

    I guess Carlos Hyde out of Ohio State who just may be available for Jacksonville's second round pick. I put money on that somehow happening. Things in the NFL get real predictable.

    Dan Patrick and his side-kick discussing Julian Edelman: "just another 5'9" white guy" "a system guy" "100 catches isn't a big deal when you get 4 yards a catch" - these wankers couldn't find a single good thing to say about Edelman. My blood was boiling listening to their racist garbage.

    Typical self-hating white talk - no pride in who they are. Dan Patrick is a hack as are 99% of sports radio losers. I tuned out of listening to sports radio a long time ago. I did have Sirius Radio for awhile and I remember one day a few years ago a caller had called in and was discussing Devon Wylie and he essentially went onto discuss the caste system and how white players are discriminated against - he was completely rejected from Kirwan and that clown Tim Ryan though.

    Anyways **** Dan Patrick - those asshats forgot to mention Edelman's electric return ability and he didn't avg 4 ypc.

    Absolutely. If you have a legitimate criticism of a player, you shouldn't have to deliberately lie about his height and stats. Edelman is visiting with San Francisco today...that can't be a good fit.

    Dan Patrick is bi-polar with his views on the Caste System. Every once in a while the paramecium-level bastard will articulate a few basic truths about white athletes (that nobody else seems to talk about), but he mostly utters filth such as his comments concerning Edelman…who averaged 10.1 yards per catch in 2013-2014, not “four.” Oh, and throughout his career, he's maintained the highest punt return average in NFL history.

    Edelman is visiting the Casteon 49ers today. I'd much prefer the Browns or a return to the Pats.

    I briefly had some hope for Patrick several years ago but he's 99%+ an eager system tool. Every once in a while he'll say something semi-perceptive, but it quickly gets buried by mountains of caste-speak. He loves basketball and hates hockey, which also shows where he's coming from. Patrick's been mouthing the party line for great pay for well over 30 years now and was one of BSPN's most popular Sports Center anchors because of his witty banter with his liberal extremist co-host Keith Olbermann, no way he's ever going to change.

    I think IQ is just your ability to learn and process information. The higher your IQ the faster you can learn things. It probably doesn't have anything to do with your ability to think critically.

    I don't think it's just IQ that separates the brains and the minds of the different races. Take a White man and a black guy with the same IQ and I doubt that they'll think and act similarly.

    Watched a diverso-trio (hulking black ex-player, sub-continental female, and pudgy white (jew?) discussing Decker's choice to go to the Jets. All agreed bad move, because of the corners he'll face and the fewer Jet pass attempts.

    So its not the lousy black player throwing him the passes, it's the excellent black players preventing him from catching those passes. Geno Smith's suspect skills weren't mentioned until the end when they mumbled something about possible problems in QB play without naming the culprit.

    They knew what their masters wanted to hear. And just as importantly, didn't want to hear.

    Amerika, where White people think blacks who have been arrested 14 times are "good guys."


    The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt believes free agent Kenny Britt "still has a chance to make an impact in the NFL," and still "definitely has the skills" if his knees cooperate. Wyatt has covered Britt his entire career, and we've never seen him give rose-colored or phony analysis. Wyatt also says Britt is "a good guy," and not the bad seed "some think he is." Britt obviously lacked confidence and concentration last year, but there aren't many players more worth a cheap, one-year "prove-it" flier. Britt's talent hasn't evaporated and he's still only 25.

    Only 25 years old and he's managed to get arrested 14 times. Yeah, sounds like a good guy to me. I guess it all depends what your definition of "a good guy" is. In the ghetto, the more times one is arrested, the more street cred he has, so by that definition he is a good guy. If he were to go to prison, like say Rae Carruth, that would make him an even better guy.

    I live near DC and what is even more nauseating than Britt himself is that the Blackskins are actually considering offering a contract to this non-performing, lowlife POS.

    Now that they have Gerhart, the Jags have so many more urgent needs then RB, you would hope they won't waste an early pick on another RB. But of course this is the NFL. I am going to enjoy the off-season, thinking that Toby is the #1 back...

    Why do we assume Smith is going to stay a starter in NY? They could very well draft someone or pick up a late cut.

    Not only is Decker's decision mindless in terms of WHO he signed with, he gave them a bargain rate deal as well. I didn't realize how bad the money was until the immortal Golden Tate signed a deal with the Lions, obviously a much better spot for any WR.

    How did Tate get only $2 million less guaranteed money and $4 million less overall on a similar five year deal? Tate's career has paled in comparison with Decker's. How did Decker agree to such a deal, with the worst team possible, when he (or at least his agent) should have been aware of what the market was paying?

    The Colts, meanwhile, another great team for any WR, quickly snatched up Hakeem Nicks the day after Decker signed with the Jets. I know they'd been mentioned as showing interest in Decker, as were the Lions. Do you mean to tell me the Lions wouldn't have paid Decker the same amount the Jets did, when they gave Golden Tate only a tiny bit less?

    From every aspect, Decker signing with the Jets is the worst decision any player has ever made in the history of this criminal league.

    Hallelujah! Edelman has resigned with the Patriots! A bit of very good news.

    Most are assuming the Jets will not draft a quarterback in the early rounds, just one year after using a 2nd round pick on Smith. Many in the media believe the Jets will, however, sign a veteran to "push Smith".

    Per reports, that veteran is very likely Michael Vick, who has a relationship and friendship with Andy Reid lackey (current Jets OC) Marty Mornhinweg.

    Vick would actually be an upgrade from Smith and would likely be just a short term fix, until the Jets use another high pick on another useless quarterback?

    Awesome! No contract details as of yet, but one would imagine it was better than Amendola's 5-year, $28.5 million deal from last season.

    I'm looking forward to Edelman, Amendola, and Gronk having a great season in 2014-2015.

    I'm not sure if these links have been posted yet, but here's Gerhart's press conference:
    http://www.jaguars.com/media-galler...-Gerhart/17705862-4d2e-4552-a9fe-52489318fa0c

    Gus Bradley's conference.
    http://www.jaguars.com/media-galler..._Bradley/96f1cff1-9b6d-4169-8808-b865c3d0e9a5
    At about 3:52, Gus Bradley gets a question from a reporter about Gerhart's status as a starter. I hope I'm wrong but the fact that he emphasizes competition and didn't give an iron-clad confirmation that YES Gerhart is the starter makes me nervous. If there's a way the NFL can screw over a talented white skill player, they will.

    Bradley was the DC for wigger Pete and the Blackhawks two years ago, so we have a right to be nervous. It wouldn't surprise me if Gerhart ended up sharing carries, but I'd be extremely disappointed if he didn't end up at least as the #1 RB on the depth chart.

    You just know that some 5'9, 190lb black scrub will be a couple of decent runs away from becoming the starter, it always works out that way against white position players.

    Free agent signings seem to be about 90% black this year. My guess is that White players know they are likely to receive offers under the going market rate if they go that route and thus try to avoid it in favor of a "home discount," whereas a number of washed up and declining black FAs get contracts (and accompanying media hoopla) that values them as if they are still stars. Demarcus Ware versus Jared Allen illustrates that strikingly, both older and less productive than they used to be but Ware is given a huge contract while Allen has been cast on the dump heap so far.

    So the "home discount" is the lesser of two evils for White NFL players. Exhibits A & B are Decker and Edelman, the two most hyped White players going into free agency. San Fran and Cleveland were the only two teams to show an interest in Edelman and I doubt either would have signed him for much more than the veteran minimum. Decker said after signing with the Jets that no other team had made a serious offer to him. Of course Denver didn't want Decker back even at a home discount. Jared Veldheer was the only highly desired White free agent in '14.

    Very true in the double standard of everyday life we see here in this once great country. Sometimes I think many of us ask ourselves why we continue to watch sports with the treatment of our people from the powers that be? I do simply because I have always played and watched sports and to totally give it up would leave me a little empty. I wish things were better but that is why we have to continue fighting for equality for our athletes. I will say this. Toby Gerhart getting signed and Edlelman resigning have been the bright sports so far for me. Especially Gerhart as he has a chance to be the next white running back to go for over 1000 yards which can help to continue to break down stereotypes!

    Like upgrading from a Yugo to a Fiat. Yes, it's not quite as bad, but still, "Fix it again, Tony."

    Has the site been hacked? I am trying to get to the Discussion Forum and everything is an ad for some kind of prescription drug.​

    The signing of Decker by the Jets could end up being a good thing for the perception of white players. Decker clearly is a quality player and will likely be the number one receiver for the Jets. The fans of New York will see a white player playing well at a skill position.

    Of course it remains to be seen if Decker gets a fair chance...

    They're already making excuses for Geno Smith. If Decker did well with Manning but doesn't do well with Smith that would suggest that a white man (Manning) is better than a black male (Smith). This is unacceptable to the black supremacist anti-whites.

    That's why they're already making excuses for if Decker doesn't fare as well with Smith as quarterback. They want to make sure Smith isn't blamed.

    If I was a betting man Id bet on Decker, and Gerhart both getting royally screwed, and flushed down the memory hole. This fraud of a league WILL NOT allow a white #1 tailback, or a big White outside WR.

    Obviously I hope like hell that Im wrong about that, but I doubt it. The fake ass NFL clearly learned its lesson with Hillis back in 2011. If Gerhart gets the carries he WILL break 1000 yards, and that has been proven to be unacceptable for a white back. Look for phantom injuries, phantom holding calls, and terrible play calling to sabotage Tobys yardage.
