    Josh Allen is now putting up MVP numbers after DWFs didn’t consider him a top 10 QB coming into the season

    The hits just keep coming for the Eagles' offense. But of course their struggles are all the fault of Carson Wentz:

    Eagles TE Dallas Goedert is going to miss "some time" after suffering an ankle injury in Week 3 against the Bengals.
    Goedert caught just one pass before limping to the sideline with the injury. He didn't return in the second half. NBC's John Clark didn't offer a specific time table for Goedert's return, only saying he'd "miss some time." Zach Ertz was targeted 10 times in Goedert's absence, and could return to high-end TE1 status if Goedert is out this week against the Niners.

    Some more "analysis" from weenieworld. They seem to think Haskins is still better than Kyle Allen. Allen actually played well for the Panthers (very well considering he was an UDFA). Haskins is trash - he won't get better. I wouldn't trust any black QB coming out of that Ohio St offense. I would however take a deeper dive into the white QBs that Mike Leach uses in his Air Raid. KJ Costello - stock way up after one week.

    Washington head coach Ron Rivera said "there is a cutoff point for me" in waiting for QB Dwayne Haskins to improve.
    Rivera reportedly said the Football Team's offensive players "deserve better" from the quarterback. It's a stinging critique of Haskins after his disastrous Week 3 performance against the Browns in which he completed 21-of-37 passes for 224 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions. Outside of the team's scripted plays to start the game, Haskins appears lost, often locking in on one receiver and forcing the ball into tight coverage. Kyle Allen is listed as Haskins' backup. Alex Smith has been inactive for the first three weeks of the season. Allen coming in as the team's starting QB couldn't be worse for their pass catchers than Haskins has been.

    Contrast that to Trubisky’s short leash. Isn’t he only in year 3? Didn’t he get the benefit of management knowing it would take a couple years to acclimate?

    So why doesn’t the unpolished but more athletic and gritty Trubisky have job security like the flop that is Haskins? Oh yeah... he is a white man not a black boy.

    You know Haskins has to be putting up stinkers when even weenieworld is criticizing him.

    "Appears lost", "locking in on one receiver", "forcing the ball into tight coverage"...classic quotaback traits that can grudgingly be mentioned for an individual quota but are verboten to talk about when describing them in general.

    "Locking in on one receiver" why that is unheard of amongst black QB save for Randy Hundley who single handedly ruined Jordy Nelson's chance at a bust in Canton. That fat Bag O Donuts McCarthy sat there for the entire season while Hundley headless chickened unless he could find Davante Adams for his 12 targets a game versus Nelson's 1.

    Well now:

    Raiders coach Jon Gruden said he's "concerned" about the injuries for rookies Henry Ruggs (hamstring) and Bryan Edwards (ankle).
    He declined to give an update until the trainers had more results. As it stands, it sounds as if both Ruggs and Edwards will miss a handful of games. Slot wideout Hunter Renfrow emerged for 6/84/1 receiving on nine targets in Week 3 and could be leaned on for an extended period if Las Vegas' rookies are sidelined.

    They have been making a big deal out of the NFL having two female coaches and female ref. I've seen that female referee before so I get it. In the promo photo below it supposedly shows the two coaches along with the referee. What female coaches? Must have been a wrong photo insert. It happens.

    The whole butch thing is such a joke. If you're attracted to women, why not be attracted to one who actually looks like a woman? And if you're attracted to masculinity, why not be attracted to actual men?

    Cody Barton may start at Will for the Seahawks depending on the severity of jordyn brooks injury. If Barton plays well he will have the job for the rest of the year, given the Seahawks aren’t high on Brooks yet.

    This should cheer up Bucky and the Packers contingent here. LB Ty Summers is slated to start Monday night against the Falcons but because they have a bye week after that game the starter might be recovered by then. I say why rush back dude? Take it easy and take a few more weeks off. Besides this might be the moment the doltish Packers realize they have a gem in Summers.

    The Packers seemed happy with his performance against the Saints. He even took on the role of calling the defensive plays no small task for a player who only sees the field on special teams. Summers is a tremendous athlete with phenomenal speed. One to root for big time. Here is hoping this is just the beginning of a long great career.

    With his athleticism, were he black he would have been penciled in as a day 1 starter his rookie year.

    As it is, his racial apprenticeship may be over. He will produce and produce well week in and week out.

    Covid breakout involving Titans and Vikings supposedly. Oh no, a flu with a 99.9 something% survival rate! Cancel the season!

    In reality I just hope it didn’t get any of our guys and maybe some of our guys get signed to replace whoever’s sick.

    At least for now I give credit to Ron Rivera for sticking up for Troy Apke. While the vile DC press and voracious white hating fan base attack Apke with every kitchen appliance known to mankind, Rivera won't cave in (yet). In fact in the teeth of the rabid hate Rivera said Troy improved his play from week two. He notes his inexperience and some growing pains but overall Troy is still in his good graces. And he should be. Is Troy playing like an all star? No. But in the scheme of things he has been playing ok by NFL standards and given his youth and upside why bail on him now.

    It goes without saying if people put the microscope on black DBs in the way they do for Troy you would see widespread hysteria. I applaud the fact Rivera is looking at things like a realist and not cowering in the face of the irrational hatred that is being flung Apke's way. Apke with his athleticism presents a threat to the caste status quo for black supremacists and jealous nerdy white punks. They want him to disappear and fast. Well they will have to wait at least another week.

    TwentyTwo has alluded to this stream of thinking. It appears a lot of white men are threatened by top tier white athletes. While they see blacks as others they like the idea that they themselves have the same athleticism of whites and so when a white player stands out for his speed and such it makes them feel less masculine. These people are of course totally deluded. They are useless non athletic pods who are taking their hatred out on white players in an attempt to build up themselves. They are the epitome of cowards.

    My working hypothesis is that most "progressives" harbor a revenge fantasy, and of course trillions of dollars are spent on reenforcing it via mass media.

    I bet he gets more playing time than Nall.

    Bears re-signed RB Artavis Pierce.

    Pierce will take Tarik Cohen's (knee, injured reserve) roster spot. An UDFA out of Oregon State, Pierce is capable of playing all three downs. It's an extremely thin backfield, with only Ryan Nall behind David Montgomery. Pierce should be kept on watch lists in the event of a Montgomery injury.

    The powers that be are terrified of Nall getting the chance to show what he can do. One McCaffrey-type White running back can be dismissed as a "freak of nature." But if more start appearing, fans might start asking themselves uncomfortable questions.
