    That's a problem that most of the current "future of the position" QB's have. Look at Deshaun Watson, sure he's one of the better ones. He's a good accurate thrower, is okay at his read progressions, but has very limited pocket awareness so it's sack city. Lamar Jackson is a joke. One injury (will happen any week now) and he's RG3 the second. Dak has decent pocket awareness, but is very average. He will go only as far as his offensive teammates will take him. Russell Wilson is one of the best in this regard, but it's not like there are Russell Wilsons pouring into the league, only Haskins, Tyrod Taylors, and Kyler Murrays.

    PHillisFan's favorite QB Patrick Mahomes has good awareness, and he'd better since he's not much of a runner and his O-line with Cam Erving and Martinas Rankin guarding his blind side is inept. Is all white QB's awareness great? No, but on average they are much better.

    Yea it's not looking good. A quotaback can have a few good games against bad defenses and everyone thinks their great. People are seriously saying Bridgewater should start over Brees. He was a glorified game manager and the Saints won through the running game and field goals for most of his starts. For some reason against the Falcons they did the exact opposite of this with Brees (46 pass attempts and 11 rushes) and people were saying Bridgewater would do better lol.

    I have a feeling Michael Thomas was whining about getting more catches so he can break records because they were trying to force it to him the entire game, even in garbage time and the game was well out of reach. Made the entire offense predictable.

    Rivers is keeping the Chargers in the game despite 2 interceptions in the first half. Phillip Rivers still has over 200 yards passing to only 63 for Mahomes.

    Would love to see a huge upset tonight. Take care of the ball in the red zone. Only down by 1 pt at the half. Let's go Chargers!

    It's getting away from LA. Kelce caught a TD from the sideshow.

    Lamar Jackson is a poor man's Cam Newton. Duh-Wayne Haskins isn't even that.

    Both ESPN and Fox Sports were giddy with their Quotaback hype today. Top stories were:

    Dak deserves to be paid as an elite QB. Has he even won a playoff game yet? lol.

    Lamar Jackson should be in MVP Talk, of course both networks believe Russell Wilson to be the leader in that category.

    Also DeShaun Watson is a Top QB in The League(no mention of his dink n dunk performance in a blowout loss.

    Of course they had to top it off some Mahomes worship. It's not a day until you do that.

    Weasel Nick Wright made a joke about showing a White QB some love in Jimmy G.

    Shannon "Donkey Lips" Sharpe made sure to cut down Jeff Driskel's solid performance against Dallas. Apparently a 109 QB rating, 2 passing TDs and 200yds passing and oh get this 51 yards rushing and a TD on the ground isn't impressive enough.

    There was a brief mention of Josh Allen having another nice game, but the talking heads would much rather talk about quotabacks all day. Can't waste time talking about a promising White QB. They also tore down Wentz and Goff and giggled with Glee at Kyle Allen's poor game.. In conclusion these 2networks are carbon Caste copies of each other. That's no surprise to anyone here.

    Bucky captures the current media mood and take on the QB situation thus far. What strikes me the most is more than ever before you can detect the straining when it comes to promoting black QBs. They are pushing everything too hard and at times it seems really forced.

    And I am guessing the general public has noticed. For example is everyone buying into the idea now that Prescott is an elite QB?

    I sense a lot of this overreach will come back to haunt some of these dweeb sorts. These are the same people who insisted Josh Allen can't play in the NFL.

    Given their history "they" always push their narratives too far with it usually coming back to bite them in the backside. Here's hoping so for sure.

    The week before when Dallas lost to Minn, every talking head here in Texas was trying to say it was the play-calling from the coaches that cost Dak a win. Brad Sham, the play-by-play voice for 40+ years of the Cowboys said not once but twice emphatically that Dak has the ability to option out of the play, given that the last series was RPO (run, pass, option). He stated that Dak is the one who chose to option for the run plays to Elliot on the plays they were stuffed. Brad Sham was not asked again to come on the air. We can bet that if a White QB had optioned in or out and went for a run play the whole story would be blaming the White QB and replace him immediately with an athlete that can win! Blah, blah, blah.

    The narrative and direction this negrophilia is going is obvious and sickening, seeing that most of the sports talking heads are White. Beyond disgusting.

    I agree with all of the above, how the communist media and DWFs are constantly proving Rush Limbaugh correct in their over-the-top effusive praise for black QBs and downplaying top white QBs.

    But the “AHDIW” aspect can’t be ignored. Until they go RG3, or more recently Jameez in their performances, it’s tough to tamp it down. It always amazes me how many/most of these players somehow manage to have amazing defenses and stout offensive lines. Look at Lamar Jackson. He’s a pathetic joke as a real QB, but the Ravens stomp everyone.

    Look what happens to a game-changing player when their defense stinks (lose JJ Watt) and the line goes South, you get Watson’s performance.

    Dolphins cut Mark Walton. I wonder who will give him his 6th chance. Hopefully Laird becomes more involved.

    More details on why the scum Walton was cut. With Kalen Ballage the worst starting RB in league history, it's getting tougher and tougher for the anti-White NFL, Miami Dolphins version, to keep Laird from getting an opportunity.

    Fox Sports' Andy Slater reports Mark Walton was arrested Tuesday morning.
    Walton is accused of punching his five-week pregnant girlfriend "several times in the face and head" 24 hours after discovering he was the father. He was arrested Tuesday morning in South Florida and promptly waived by the Dolphins. It's Walton's fourth arrest in the past year following his three violations this offseason. It would obviously spell the end of Walton's career if the allegations are proved to be true.

    Everytime I think about the crap that Ryan Nall has went through it makes me so angry. The guy could be a starting running back on any team in the league if he was just allowed to play.
    The guy is a stud on and off the football field. I woud be willing to bet that he is also one of the stronger players on the whole Bears Team. No we can't let a pale skin rb show up the other guys
    now can we? He already embarassed the whole league but leading the nfl over the preseason in rushing yards. What do they do? Bench him to the practice squad for the last two seasons. What a joke!
    Hoping again this Sunday that by a miracle they give the kid a chance. He has already wasted 2 years of his life practicing in his prime years. Get out of Chicago Ryan Nall a.s.a.p.

    In the racist, anti-white NFL teams will sign free agents off the street rather than give a white man a chance at running back.

    The kid has the look of another Hillis. Considering what he did in the preseason, you have to wonder just how dumb Matt Nagy really is?

    Khalil Mack, treated by the caste media as one of the greatest defensive players of all time, has exactly one sack in his last six games, and very few tackles. Looks like Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock knew what they were doing when they traded him to the Bears.

    Meanwhile, Maxx Crosby is becoming the new enforcer on the Raider's D-line. The same Crosby that was projected no more than a backup in the league by NFL scouts.

    Amen to the max bro. And considering some of the piss poor attendance lately and that even DWFs typically love great performing White players it makes me think this is not as much about bottom line but agenda-first...

    So the Seattle Dungbeetle is at the top of the list in the MVP conversation? What about Kirk Cousins? He is not very far behind. In fact in some categories is better than Wilson.

    As you can see Kirk has a better completion percentage, yards, average, better qb rating and better pocket awareness. Let's not forget he is completing more big plays than Wilson.
    The media still pushes the narrative that Cousins is trash.

    I know CF isn't considered a major media outlet but right square in the middle of last years all season long plus media gushing over "game changer" Mack I believe I was the lone dissenting voice out of any media outlet who thought the Mack worship was way out of proportion. I am sure most remember here the media bashing the Raiders took for getting rid of this good but highly overrated player. It was relentless. That ESPN prick Mike Golic couldn't stop mentioning it and the consensus was the Bears got away with highway robbery and that their all black defense was going to take them to the Promised Land. And the Raiders were the laughing stock of the year. "How could they get rid of Mack" was the endless motto.

    Yet this all powerful Bears defense couldn't stop the Eagles from driving it down their throats in the deciding late drive in the playoff game from last year and then of course they blamed their kicker for the loss even though it was pointed out after the game the kick was blocked. The Bears never wanted to acknowledge it including that stinking pin head HC Nagy.

    This season all of the blame from the media has fallen on the shoulder's of their white QB despite the fact they have horrible skill players, a weak offensive line, bad play calling that keeps mobile Trubisky in a straight jacket and of course an overrated defense led by the media savior K Mack who hasn't done a bloody thing for weeks.

    I was glad to see this the other day. As the only white draft pick of Dougtavious Whaley's horrid reign as the Bills GM, this kid has always gotten a raw deal. I was happy for him when he signed with his hometown Dolphins last year, and very perturbed(but not surprised) when he was cut for dropping one pass. He is a true all-around TE. Hopefully, he gets a fair shot with the Jaguars, but I won't bank on it.

    That's a refrain one often reads, that White Quarterback so and so is now surrounded by a host of good skill players, so there's no excuse if he doesn't excel. And yet that oft-repeated assertion is often flat out wrong.

    Look at the Eagles, where there was much hype about Carson Wentz having so many weapons this season. Well, where are they? DeSean Jackson (old for a WR) played one game and has missed the rest of the season with a mysterious "core" muscle injury. Alshon Jeffery, as usual, has been plagued with hamstring pulls and other injuries and has once again greatly underachieved his now long-gone "upside." Nelson Agholor specializes in alligator arming balls and making horrible drops at the most crucial times and is often invisible on the field. Rookie WR J. J. Arcega-Whiteside received tons of positive press all through training camp and was supposed to be a "difference maker" right from the get-go, especially in the red zone. When was the last time you heard anything about him? Mack Hollins? An alleged speedster who's been lucky to make one catch per game. The reality is that the Eagles' receivers have been bad and the passing game is dependent on two White tight ends, Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert.

    It's the same with the Bears. Allen Robinson gets thrown to a ton and has talent pinpointing and going for the ball, but is slow and rarely creates separation. Last year's ballyhooed draft pick Anthony Miller has been a bust this year. Little speedster Taylor Gabriel makes a catch now and then but is not an NFL level starter. The rookie Riley Ridley has done next to nothing. And of course annual training camp star Tanner Gentry can't get a whiff of the field during the regular season. The much hyped "three down" running back David Montgomery has been a disappointment. So on top of Trubisky being shackled from using his legs this season despite being one of the best running QBs in the league, he has had damn little to work with in the passing game. But as every sophisticated DWF knows, the Bears' struggles on both sides of the ball is all his fault.

    I've been loving this for weeks now. One of the most overrated, overhyped Caste darlings of all time.
