    I was going to comment on this, but you have pointed everything out from yesterday’s game. It was the CBS game on my neck of the woods and the Vikings are a CF favorite, so I watched the game in its entirety.

    Cousins had a lousy game, that rating of 90 is hugely misleading and perhaps the rating system should be revised. He definitely missed a wide open Thielen early on what would’ve been a long TD since Thielen had beaten his man. In a defensive struggle against a tough opponent on the road, that play could’ve completely changed the complexion of the game.

    Cousins is making $28 million per year. That’s franchise QB money, that’s the guy who goes on the road in a hostile environment and pulls out a victory. The Vikings were a QB away from being a Super Bowl team, instead they are now the worst team in their own division, largely due to poor play by Cousins. I believe he’s something like 4-27 against teams with winning records, certainly not a big-game QB. Pointing out these facts is not anti-white bias.

    The Vikings have all the pieces to be a legit contender, but right now, their QB is holding them back.

    Casey Keenum is probably available. The Vikings should get him back. They were awesome when he was at QB.

    A little insight into why Roquan Smith was a healthy scratch on Sunday, which resulted in Nick Kwitkowski having a career game and announced himself to the rest of the league. Looks like Smith was possibly involved in a DUI car crash. Hes ruled doubtful to even go with the team to London. I hope this is Kwitkowski's big break!

    Two bits of news. One is horrible. Giants budding rookie LB Ryan Connelly who played two stellar games in a row tore his ACL. I was watching and I heard him yell. I think it was a no contact injury.

    Seattle has brought back speedy TE Luke Wilson. Wilson has bounced around (Detroit, Oakland) but now he is back in Seattle. He had a 2-26 stat line Sunday.

    Smith was the team's first round draft pick last year and has played well enough so Kwiatkowski isn't going to supplant him unless Smith really screwed up. I believe Nick is in the final year of his rookie contract so at least one more start will help impress a team to sign him as their starter next year.

    Wilson was woefully under used in his previous stint with the Black Chickens so I don't expect much. Also Dissly has been doing so well at TE for them I hope Wilson does not cut into his snaps.

    It's really funny. Through training camp, the preseason and the first couple of games, Vontaze was the defense's leader and the peacekeeper, pulling teammates away from scrums and such. I was like, wow, had to rub my eyes to make sure I wasn't seeing things. But of course, with people like this guy it doesn't take long for the Tom Iron rule to manifest. He should be given the lifetime Matt Jones ban.

    Burfict sure didn't seem “heartbroken” when he was jogging off the field after he was ejected last Sunday. Instead he had a huge, room-brightening smile on his face, proud of the fact he "skull cracked" a "cracker".

    Perhaps reality is starting to set in with this fool. No more fat NFL paychecks this year. That means no easy cash to fritter away on sneakers, car tires and skanky bleached-blonde Sharks. He might've come to the end of the line, considering he'll be 30 next season and is already as slow as a turtle? Perhaps his next round of steady paychecks will come from K-Mart, sweeping floors?

    By the way, just checked PFR for his stats. At the 2012 NFL Combine he ran 5.00 flat in the 40 yard dash. He didn't even participate in most of the drills in '12, knowing all he would do is prove how nonathletic he is. That caused him to go undrafted, yet he was a starter from Day 1 in the KFL (Kosher Football League)? Think any white that slow would ever be allowed to have any sort of legit NFL career with his lack of athletic ability?

    Burfict was a star at Arizona State. Several years after, Phillip (Scooby) Wright had a very similar career as a star at Arizona. Both are about the same size. Wright had better all around numbers at his Combine (4.90/40) than "Vontaze", but Phillip was deemed a "tweener" -- too slow at LB; too small for DE.....Yet "Vontaze" was an instant starter in the KFL and Scooby has 2 career tackles (13 games) and was just cut from the Patriots practice squad this week.

    Excellent analogy. This anti white league we follow gets worse by the year. College isn't much better. When will we see the tide turn? I will never give up fighting but damn it's frustrating!

    Thanks, white lighting. Honestly, I don't things will ever change, except get worse for whites in the KFL.

    I've been following the racial dynamics of the NFL since the 1990's. Also, thanks, in large to part due to this site, I've researched the racial dynamics of the NFL back to the 1970 NFL-AFL merger. Some aspects might get a little better, but things never improve overall.

    For example, since the early 1990's (almost 3 decades) the NFL has had 1 entrenched impact starter at CB (Sehorn) and 1 entrenched impact starter at TB (CMac)....Sure in that 30 years, there have been a few more white stars at WR, LB and DE, but that has come at cost -- less white starters and less whites overall -- particularly at QB, OL, DT and LB.

    Look at this weeks transactions, whites signed from Practice Squads or as Street Free Agents are very rare. Only whites in the transaction notes are Goys like Chris Hogan -- banished to the IR with minor injuries to make room for 3rd string blacks acquired via waivers -- or talented whites being cut from P-squads.

    Fot it to change my friend we need to see things change politically and socially. The liberals are running this country and every nation into the ground. People need to put a stop to this foolish
    nonsense. We don't even have boys/girls and men/women according to this crazy people. Society is fading fast in general. Not just in sports. We need to fight back for our people. They deserve
    equality too. Don't ever give up bro. It's a fight till the bitter end in all aspects of life.

    So far the CF scouting report on Bengals WR John Ross has been pin point accurate. Like so many other black wonder child wide receivers he was drafted absurdly high in 2017 as the 11th pick. Ross has been a disaster and I don't think it is a coincidence that since he was picked the Bengals went from a solid contender to one of the worst teams in the NFL. Oh no though. We were told at the time this blow it off the lid receiver was the final missing piece to catapult the Bengals into victory lane.

    Way to spend your money Bengals.

    Sure he is having his "best" season so far with a 16-328 stat line albeit some of those numbers reflect horrid DB play but he is now injured yet again and will miss multiple games.

    As warned here loud and clear prior to the draft this frail media hero has amounted to a hill of beans. He missed the entire 2017 season and last year put up paltry "get your ass out of the league" numbers which were 21-210 despite being force fed. White wide receivers are never over targeted like so many black receivers.

    The media likes nothing better than to rub the public's noses in it when it comes to speedy black athletes and Ross was put up on their special podium where his speed was mentioned in between every other breath. Coming soon to a theater near you another great black speed hope.

    I wish him nothing but bad luck.

    It's absolutely amazing, even for the virulently anti-White NFL, that this first round ultra-bust continues to be a featured player on NFL teams. Maybe Scott Miller and/or Justin Watson will see some real playing time but knowing Bruce anti-Arians and his all-non-White-male coaching staff I wouldn't count it.

    Breshad Perriman (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday.
    Perriman should be considered questionable for the Buccaneers' Week 5 matchup against the Saints. He's an extremely thin fantasy play if active considering the Bucs' field stretcher has nearly as many targets (12) as yards (16) this season. Rookie Scott Miller could see additional reps if Perriman is ultimately sidelined.

    Bill Bidwill died yesterday, I didn't realize he was so old, but I forgot that the Cardinals were in the SB about ten years ago and that was the last reference I had of Bidwell. His family has owned the Cardinals since 33' and the team could have a ownership issues with his son and daughter fighting for ownership. I also recall a brother being involved with the team too.........https://ww

    PS, I looked it up and there are 5 siblings who could force the sale of the team at some point in the near future, with an inheritance tax and greed this could be a team in flux.....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Bidwill

    The Vikings situation is starting to deteriorate and HC Zimmer has no one to blame but himself. I don't think anyone here is surprised that WR Diggs has now expressed a deep displeasure with the offense after Thielen just went public.

    Compare the first 12 or so games of the Vikings with the dawn of new OC Stefanski at around the 14 mark of last year. The difference is palpable. I know I am repeating myself but QB Cousins and Thielen were a great pair early on at least. If Cousins came out of the chute and never jelled with Thielen then I too would be calling for his head but that isn't the case as far as I can determine.

    Last year the Vikings were a free wheeling let the ball fly type of team that was the league's envy as Thielen was on course to have one of the greatest seasons ever by a white wide receiver.

    But the insecure Zimmer got nervous and quickly dismissed his OC in favor of Stefanski who all but gutted Thielen and their high flying offense.

    Yet curiously the press has gone easy on the new stale OC pretty much putting the blame squarely on the QB who looked like a world beater, when he had time, pre Stefanski era.

    Are the Vikings going to open it up this Sunday against the Giants? I wouldn't hold your breath.

    Interesting how the Vikings' two star receivers have conducted themselves. Thielen spoke out in some mildly disparaging terms, almost shocking in and of itself for a White player, while Diggs boycotted practice, posted some cryptic tweets, demanded a trade, and otherwise has been carrying on like a spoiled brat. Kind of a microcosm of the way two different races handle a similar situation.

    Exactly. And the media almost never critsizes the Black and will scrutinize the White response as "grumbling" or some such false narrative.

    Typical TNB, although to an extent I cant blame him, he was the guy until the emergence of Theilen. I think he knows he is not better than Theilen, and he knows Kirk Cousins prefers him. They could have avoided this in the preseason by retaining at least three of their four white wide receivers

    I feel for Gruden to an extent. The Redskins are one of the worst run teams in football. Prior to Gruden giving guys like Holcombe, Apke, Quinn a chance they were about as unfriendly to white players as any team out there. Gruden will be gone at some point this year or after the season and Snyder/Allen are going to force the next coach to play Haskins (who is coming off as an entitled/self-centered typical afflete). The system Haskins played in at Ohio St has never produced a starting NFL QB, the fact he was a one year wonder does not help either. Both he and Murray have high bust rate probabilities.

    Diggs was never "the guy" pre-Thielen. The only year he outgained Thielen was his rookie year of 2015 when he had 720 yards and Thielen was still serving his racial apprenticeship. Thielen has outgained him every year since. Last season was the first time Diggs broke 1,000 receiving yards and he only did it by 21 yards.
