    Leighton Vander Esch led the Cowboys in tackles, he was really impressive, but watching a Cowboy's game with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, I've noticed any showering of praise towards Vander Esch, they'll always include black linebacker Jaylon Smith in the discussion, it's like they've got a (((producer))) in their ear dictating them what to say.

    Good catch. It seems that they can't just praise a white man without including something to build up blacks too.

    Another thing you'll see announcers do is whenever a white player makes a good play, they'll mention a black player. For example a white player makes a good catch and they'll talk about what a great block a black offensive lineman made. Like clockwork.

    The thing that bugs the crap out of me is the condescension the talking heads have towards white players, particularly QB's, you'd think Tim Tebow, Joe Flacco, Blake Bortles, etc.... raped a college co-ed...Oh wait that was Jameis Winston, or maybe they sexually assaulted an Uber Driver.....Oh that was Jameis as well

    Dallas re-signed Sean Lee, although he took a huge pay cut. Hopefully he can stay healthy and start next season, along side LVE.

    Nice to see. His injury history is now legendary but when he does play he is tops. Here is hoping he can stay healthy because he is still a tremendous linebacker.

    Sean Lee plays defense the way it was meant to be played. It is a pleasure to watch a defender play who can properly tackle and use smarts in this day and age of defenders who run around with no sense of purpose. But teams prefer black underwear Olympic types, many of whom play clueless defense and aren't worth a pound of salt.

    Unfortunately Jaylon Smith is a fixture as the starter on the inside next to LVE. Smith had 121 combined tackles last season along with 4 sacks, pretty much living up to his lofty draft status of 34th overall in '17. Due to his extensive injury history of bad hamstrings Sean Lee is currently a role player much as he finished last season, but a lot can happen before and during the regular season that may cause the Cowboys to turn to him again.
