    Yup besides Bosa and Tranquil not much to root for in these LA Chargers. I agree with @Shadowlight their owner is a sellout, I hope they continue to struggle finding their footing in Mexican LA.

    Great news about Cioffi, but at this point it'd be a miracle to see him on their 53man roster!

    The Jets have several affletes in their secondary set for free agency. I know it's a long shot but I do hope he somehow manages to make the team. I remember watching one Raiders preseason game and recall he made a few big time plays only to be cut. It's good to see him back in the league as I wrote him off once Black Jack cut him.

    As far as Taysom Hill goes - it's an interesting situation. His injury history in college scares me some and I have to wonder why Payton played Teddy Melonhead rather than Hill if he is supposedly very high on him. If I were the Saints I'd enjoy the last year of Brees and draft Jake Fromm and have him sit for a year and learn under Brees.

    Garrett not only gets reinstated, but continues to falsely accuse Rudolph. NFL games are mic'd up to the gills; gee I wonder why there's no evidence available to back Garrett up, especially when the improper use of the "n-word" now allows blacks to get away with murder, sometimes literally. Part of the terms of his reinstatement should have been for Garrett to put the hoax to rest.

    Speaking in an interview with ESPN's Mina Kimes, Myles Garrett stood by his allegation that Steelers QB Mason Rudolph called him a racial slur before last November's brawl.
    "He called me the N-word," Garrett said. "He called me a 'stupid N-word.'" Garrett has never wavered from his explosive accusation, though he did say he never intended for it to become public. The NFL said it "found no such evidence" during Garrett's appeal of his indefinite suspension. Garrett was reinstated on Wednesday. Rudolph has strenuously denied the allegation.

    This is utterly ridiculous does anybody think that if an Italian-American was called one of the various ethnic slurs against his people he could try to clobber another player over the head with helmet and have it justified in his mind.

    Left wing lunatics have taken this slur and put it in this sanctified air of untouchable and above any other slurs, lately though gay slurs seem to be rising to this level, but nobody would get homicidal over them(as far as I know).

    So now violence is deemed okay if someone white uses the "N" Word.

    When I was in HS my friends and I would say "that's gay" to something we didn't like. Guaranteed now we would be expelled if they heard us using "slurs" like this.

    I agree above that words like the "N" word should not provide cover for black people who commit violence using that as an excuse. There was a piece on this on another thread here at CF.

    That said Garrett is lying. I was correct back when I predicted his suspension would last the rest of last season but if I was the NFL I would place him on the shortest leash. Remember he had a few obvious dirty licks before his on field assault last year and add to that he is obviously a deceitful butt mule.

    But with all the racial talk bandied about in the media where most of it revolves around "white supremacy" whatever the hell that means they carefully avoid a searing truth. In the corridors of some to many black families is an outright hatred of whites which they try their best to conceal. But because those who fall in that category see white people as inherently evil for people like Garrett to make up lies about white people it is ok because they don't see white people as moral individuals. They see them as evil beings. No one in the media dares to discuss what goes on in some to many black households behind closed doors. It is called black racism and according to media drones it pretty much doesn't exist. Which is a horrid lie and an assault on truth.

    Until that reality is expressed and put out in the open don't expect a full scale racial healing to take place. Then again the races get along better than ever these days ( mainly due to whites) but black racism is alive and well.

    The racial hatred and division is inculcated from the top down, not the bottom up. Blacks and Whites got along a lot better back in the "bad old days" when most black families were intact and there wasn't the endless media and "educational" onslaught stirring up hatred against Whites. Not defending forced segregation just as I don't defend forced integration, but the whole "civil rights" industry has been a top-down directed onslaught against the Historic American Nation with the goal of eradicating every last trace of it and replacing it with something akin to AOC's wet dreams. That's the root cause of the irreparably divided nation we are today.

    Anyone who doesn't understand the full spectrum of the organized, undeclared war that's taking place can learn from this article by Paul Craig Roberts:

    White People Are Being Erased

    1000% False.

    Bold-Faced Lie.

    I did not, have not, and would not utter a racial-slur.

    This is a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character

    It's nice to see Rudolph fighting this head on. When reading the comments sections for this story on other sites it is also refreshing to see how many are commenting against Garrett and his playing of the race card. I have zero faith in the NFL to make blacks adhere to the same standard as whites - just like in regular society. Goodell is a pansy.

    I don't think Goodell's a pansy, nor is Manfred of MLB. They are paid extremely well to know the boundaries of racial rules and discourse. Goodell earns just south of $32 million a year to do the owners' bidding. Rush Limbaugh makes around $85 million per year, Sean Hannity around $36 million.

    Every now and then a public figure slips up and is ritually lambasted and ruined, but otherwise they all know the unwritten rules of the game. Same goes for the Republican Party. I was reading recently of a lone rural GOP legislator in Washington State who is former military, supports the militias and a hard-core version of Christianity, but is not "anti-semitic." Yet he was the subject of negative national publicity, with the goal being for him to resign in disgrace. There will never be a single representative in the Republican Party that will represent Whites; if one tries he'll be out the next election if not sooner. Congressman Steve King of Iowa was effectively castrated politically for the crime of mentioning White Nationalism in an objective way during an interview.

    Shadowlight you are a very racially aware white person. What you just posted is spot on. There will not be any racial healing as long as there are two races of people that exist. Blacks absolutely want to eliminate the white race. The sad part is whites are helping blacks to do just that. In 1950 there were 350 million whites an in just 70 years there are 180 million whites left in the U.S. We have given blacks the green flag to rob, rape, and murder whites without serious payback. Until we go back to the eye for eye justice the white race is over in the not so distant future. I don't think that we can turn this around we have turned the other cheek too long. We have been silent too long.

    If this reply needs to be moved to another category feel free to do so.

    The other day I was out grocery shopping and saw a young white mother with 4 kids, 3 boys and a girl....shock of all shocks they were all white! White families in the West need to be having 4-6 babies for each family otherwise SL and Booth are very correct in their thoughts. We have ingrained in our white society that having over 2 kids is a financial burden, it is not fair to the woman etc etc Feminist pressure has alot to do with this as well as the Jewish propaganda. It is a mathematical certainty that whites are quickly becoming the minority all over the world. Look at the countries where whites are the minority as in England etc they are terrible places to live now. South Africa is a hell hole, the negroe's cannot run a country no matter how hard they try, they are not smart enough period. I have a good friend who is a RN in South Africa, she is not allowed to leave the country to live elsewhere yet she fears for life everyday, is racially taunted by negroes everyday even at the hospital where she works. I could go on and on and on but very few whites where I live will even listen....they are lambs waiting for the slaughter..

    With that caste stooge GM John Dorsey out of the picture it looks like the Browns are now actually considering re-signing Joe Schobert. Just goes to show what a pure anti-white caste system disciple John Dorsey truly is:

    https://brownswire.usatoday.com/2020/02/17/joe-schobert-future-with-browns-2020-nfl-free-agency/

    Joe Schobert remains a pending free agent, and the question of whether the Browns linebacker remains a Browns linebacker is difficult to avoid. Schobert himself still doesn’t have a good idea where his future lies, in Cleveland or elsewhere.

    Schobert recently discussed his fate and how the new Browns management regime impacts his decision and the team’s view of him. In an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio, Schobert talked about new GM Andrew Berry and the line of communication between them.

    “We’ve communicated since he’s been hired, which kinda had broken down with the previous regime,” Schobert said. “But I guess we still just have to see where it goes, see where it leads and if both sides can reach an agreement then that’d be great.”

    Schobert is definitely keen on staying in the brown and orange.

    “I’d love that,” he said of staying in Cleveland. “But you never know and, as of now, I haven’t really heard of anything. But like I said, I think there’s another month to go and they’re probably pretty busy over there figuring stuff out for themselves with a whole new staff.”

    Schobert is coming off his most impactful statistical season, recording four interceptions and nine total passes defended. He’s consistently performed as one of the best coverage LBs in the league. But Schobert was not deemed a priority by the John Dorsey regime and his contract expires at the end of the league year.

    Interesting that Schobert's most impressive statistic of all -- tackles, of which he is a top five linebacker in the league -- isn't even mentioned. It would be like a Cleveland sports writer focusing on Jim Thome's batting average and never mentioning his great home run numbers.

    I just hope there's genuine interest in Schobert, Martinez, Kwiatkoski and the other high-caliber free agent White defensive players and they don't get screwed by being viewed only as backups or are forced to re-sign at "hometown discounts" with their current teams.

    I hope you are right Don. There are quite a few good white LBs that are under the radar players due to racial reasons. Kwiatkoski in my mind should be a surefire starter but of course the "white player bad" mentality is heavily entrenched in national and local sports media as well as with the drunk white dopes who invest way too much loyalty in an arbitrary sports team. I also feel that Tyler Matakevich should be starting in Pittsburgh at one of the inside spots - he would be no worse than Larry Foote who was a mainstay of the Steelers for several years in the early-mid 00s.

    Matakevich is almost identical to Kwiatkoski -- a tackling machine who didn't run a sufficiently fast enough 40 at the Combine. Seemingly nothing else matters. Matakevich almost got a chance to start a couple of years ago, but the deafening pre-season outcry against him by the DWFs and media -- I don't recall reading a single positive comment about him from DWFs -- resulted in his quickly going back to special teams. He should indeed be a starter but I would put the odds of that now happening at 100 to 1 against. It would take a large amount of injuries to all the "real" linebackers in front of him and even then he would be nitpicked to death no matter how productive he was, which is what happened in Pittsburgh on those rare occasions when he did get to play.

    White linebackers are almost always screwed when their Combine 40 times are over 4.70. Looks like Josey Jewell is also going that same route. About the only exception was Chris Borland, who was instantly so incredibly productive and dominant that he overcame all the racist stereotypes against him.

    The 40 time is the most important (if not only) criteria. I once read Tom Coughlin carried a stopwatch with him everywhere he went.

    With Brady's status uncertain, the New England dynasty possibly over, and the team seemingly getting blacker by the season, not sure how much I like this speculation, which is highly unlikely to happen anyway. At this point the Rams are easily the more relatively White friendly team.

    Trading for Cooper Kupp Would Be Perfect Offseason Move For Patriots

    Max McAuliffe

    When the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams in last year's Super Bowl, it came at a time when the Rams went all in to win a championship. They spent lots of draft picks and signed many core players to big extensions.

    Now, after missing the playoffs this past season and going into the offseason with little cap space, Los Angeles has been firing coaches and members of the administration for building for the now and not for the future.

    Next offseason, arguably their best offensive player, Cooper Kupp, will be seeking a new contract, as his rookie deal will expire. Except, it is not looking like the Rams will be able to give him the money he deserves, with players like Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Jalen Ramsey, Brandin Cooks, and Aaron Donald eating up large chunks of their salary cap.

    In 2021 Los Angeles will have to re-sign players like Ramsey, Robert Woods, and Kupp. A team with limited cap space cannot hold onto all three of those talented playmakers. Instead of watching Kupp, one of the league's better receivers, walk out the door, they could decide to flip him to another team for draft picks (which they do not have many of).

    Los Angeles, as it stands right now, does not have a first round pick over the next two seasons. Currently, offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth's future with the team is in question, and with the 2020 NFL Draft being a deep draft for offensive tackles, trading up might make sense for them.

    All these looming factors point to the Rams putting Kupp on the market and seeing if they can get serious draft capital for the former third-round pick.

    Why the Rams like New England as the landing spot:
    Anytime you trade a young, promising star like Kupp, you want to trade him to a team you don't play a lot. In other words, Los Angeles would most likely prefer to ship him off to an AFC team. No AFC team could use him more than the Patriots could, and with lots of draft capital, the Rams could probably get the most value by shipping Kupp to New England.

    These two teams have traded star receivers before. Back in 2018, Brandin Cooks was shipped off to the west coast in a deal that has since brought Isaiah Wynn, Keion Crossen, Ryan Izzo, and Byron Cowart to Foxboro. That trade happened when Cooks was set to have his contract expire and the Patriots were unwilling to commit to him long-term and give him the absurd amount of money the Rams gave him.

    New England shipped Cooks there to play him as little as possible. So far, they only played him once, which was last year's Super Bowl. Cooks did not fair well in that game.

    Why this trade could be similar to the Cooks' trade:
    This trade would be similar to the Cooks' trade not just because it involved shipping a receiver to another conference, or the fact that it would be the same teams doing business. The main reason they would be so similar is the asking price would not be that far from what the Patriots got for Cooks.

    The Rams would likely look for a first and third round selection to start off the negotiations. After Cooks and a sixth was traded to New England for a first-rounder and a fourth, that trade would lay the framework for this one.

    What the trade could look like:
    This might be enough to get the talented slot receiver in Foxboro. Take a look:

    NE receives: Cooper Kupp

    LAR receives: 2020 first round pick (23rd overall) and one of the projected third round compensatory picks from losing Trey Flowers and Trent Brown last offseason

    Why the Patriots do it and how it brings everything together:
    In a year where cap space is not exactly plentiful and receiving targets are somewhat scarce, Kupp only carries a cap hit of $1.2 million. That leaves enough to still re-sign other key free agents and or make a free agency splash, such as Hunter Henry or Austin Hooper, for examples.

    Most of all, it brings everything together. Kupp is an undisputed number one receiver on lots of NFL rosters. He would be the centerpiece of the Patriots' offense. He is a terrific route-runner, who knows how to get open (two big struggles for New England last year).

    As it is rumored that Tom Brady wants more offensive weapons if he's going to stay with the Patriots, Kupp might just be the guy to hold everything together and push Brady to re-sign and stay in Foxboro.

    Kupp would alleviate the pressure put on receivers like Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu, and youngster N'Keal Harry. Edelman has always been a better number two guy as opposed to having the passing game run through him. Sanu has thrived more as a complimentary piece in the passing game throughout his career, so adding Kupp would help him as well. Harry could thrive on better matchups with Kupp on the field, which would allow him to grow and flourish with fellow youngster Jakobi Meyers.

    Lastly, Jedd Fisch now being on New England's coaching staff could help Kupp thrive in New England. Previously on Sean McVay's coaching staff in Los Angeles as the assistant offensive coordinator, if there's anyone on the Patriots' coaching staff that would know how to utilize Kupp, it's Fisch. That's a recipe for success.

    What New England would do with Kupp's expiring contract would be interesting. Bill Belichick could go in many different directions from there. Kupp could end up with the same fate as Cooks did in 2018, or he could be worth keeping around.

    But if there is one thing we know for sure, it's that Kupp in a Patriots uniform would make New England's offense significantly better in 2020.

    If this turns out to be true we might have to move this to the "We are living in a cartoon" thread:

    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Teddy Bridgewater is expected to have a "strong market" in free agency and could land a multi-year deal, paying him around $30 million per year.
    Fowler added, "Multiple teams expect Bridgewater to have a strong free agency market as a starting or bridge quarterback for a team in transition. Widely expected to be on the move unless Drew Brees retires." The number is certainly a bit shocking, although Bridgewater does deserve credit for posting above-average rankings in adjusted yards per attempt (15th), QB Rating (11th), TD Rate (13th) and completion rate (6th) among 38 QBs to start at least five games in 2019. Of course, the Saints did offer Bridgewater just about the most QB-friendly offense possible, as he was seldom asked to do more than check the ball down to Alvin Kamara or Michael Thomas. Either way: Bridgewater figures to command starter-caliber money from someone in 2020. The Saints will likely need to make a decision between keeping Bridgewater or Taysom Hill if Drew Brees wishes to continue playing in 2020.

    The Bungles sound like a logical landing spot until Burrow is ready to start. But 30 million for a bridge qb/ spot starter type of qb is terrible money management.[/QUOTE]
