    I wonder what the racial breakdown was for the ten or so Eagles players that were going to attend the White House ceremony? I'll bet it was almost 100% White. Trump knew that photo op would have sent the MSM into hyperventilating that it 'looked like a klan meeting'..... think back to all their whining over the White House interns photo.....

    NW, rumors suggest most if not all those players who wanted to attend were white. If you needed any more evidence on WHO CONTROLS NFL locker rooms this incident should erase any doubts.

    Which is why I think it is essential that more white players fill up NFL rosters. Pipe dream perhaps but blacks are ruling the roost in the NFL more than ever and they do not want to concede their power. Like the NBA the NFL is now less about ownership, management and coaches and more about black power and it's ugly consequences.

    Black players uniting together dictating things like White House visits was not happening over a decade ago. Owners and coaches had more control back then.

    But my biggest concern is the possible ongoing trend of black players sabotaging the chances of white players succeeding. And jeopardizing the notion of true competition.

    I know Wentz and HC Peterson wanted to attend. King Cuck Chris Long was one of the outspoken players not attending.

    The caste system puts those players in power. I do fully agree that the white athletes who make it to the NFL are targets of blacks. I think as the idiotic players gain more and more "power" they are losing dwfs who are finally waking up (in some sense at least) to the racial bias against them. It is beyond me how the NBA is still a fully functioning league - without the TV contracts and player endorsements I feel that it would crumble. The NFL may be on it's way to essentially being a house of cards as well. Just another league based solely upon smoke and mirrors.

    And if this move doesn't work out they'll try him at waterboy.

    The Lions are converting LB Nick Bellore to fullback. A reserve linebacker last season, Bellore also caught a touchdown pass in December. It's possible he sees snaps in all three phases in 2018.

    No surprises at all with both Wentz and Long. Chris Long is the epitome of a bitter, angry social justice warrior. I'd expect no less from that cuck. He's got to be the luckiest bastard ever, getting to do his anti-Trump grandstanding two years in a row with two different Super Bowl winning teams, even though he was a non-factor in both games.

    Carson Wentz is a cultural conservative who went hunting during his bye week and gave shotguns as gifts to his offensive linemen. He's got his head screwed on straight. I wish him a long and successful NFL career, and there's every indication that it'll happen.

    The lame and pathetic virtue signaling by cucks like Long was old the minute it started, and the fact that it comes from leftists who always proclaim how they supposedly want "tolerance" and "unity" simply exposes all of them as liars and hypocrites. It's these SJWs who have created this toxic atmosphere of hyper-partisanship and 24/7 politics that is poisoning America today.

    During my sophomore year in college, the softball team that I played on came pretty close to winning the national championship. Obama was president at the time, and if we had won I would have gone on the White House visit - not for Obama, but for my teammates. I knew several of them who didn't like the Empty Suit either, but they felt the same way about the visit - that it was a unique opportunity that was bigger than politics.

    Just saw that the Browns signed a black LB and plan to play him in the middle where Joe Schobert plays. Schobert had a great season last year yet the Browns feel this black lb is an upgrade.

    This is disheartening. Schobert tied for the league lead in tackles and made the pro bowl and now it seems the Browns might want to replace him with a lesser black player, Mychal Kendricks.

    Last year Kendricks had 73 tackles while Schobert had 142, almost twice as many. If Kendricks ends up replacing Schobert it will be clear cut proof of anti-white discrimination in the NFL.

    E P,
    You forgot the word "more" in your last sentence. I'm sure it was just a typo. You meant to say, "... MORE anti-white discrimination..."

    Schobert should be fine. Collins is coming off a blown out knee, my guess is Kendricks signing was for depth. That being said this is The Negro Football League..

    Well, it definitely would be more, added on to the massive amount of discrimination that's already taken place.

    Free is right both Wentz and Peterson wanted to attend. Fact is Head Coaches enjoy this ceremony most since they get the most limelight and the President gets to joke around with them. But as we know the majority of Eagles hung their coach out to dry. No this isn't the old days where order was in place. Sure right the team is "together" they assure us. The black posse is the only thing together in NFL locker rooms nowadays.

    Digging deeper I believe only a few players ( as low as three) were going to attend. The rest of the ten were to be filled out by the mascot and team trainers. My understanding is the Eagles told the WH a couple of weeks ago they expected around 80 people to show up but that was just a conniving lie to embarrass Trump. They pulled the rug out at the last second and told the WH about ten would actually show and Trump pretty much had no choice but to cancel. It would have been a few white players and the mascot giving more ammunition for blacks to bitch and moan and continue to push the lie that Trump is anti-black which I have seen NO evidence of since he has been in office. Whatever anyone thinks of Trump he did invite them despite disagreeing with the flag protests. Too bad the black players didn't take that sort of attitude but taking the low road is becoming a habit with them.

    Predictably "king" James said neither one of the NBA teams would visit. Gee whatever happened to due process? Black man hath spoken and everyone get in line. F that.

    I and am sure most people have no problem with athletes being concerned about poor neighborhoods and such. But the reason we are seeing push back from the public and many politicians is this so called protest does not address those concerns. To me it is a black power hyper masculine push to pave the way so blacks don't have to follow the law. Period. Yes there are a few bad cops and some are dumb asses but the majority of them are trying to keep the peace. These drug running neighborhoods are bad enough but eliminating the police will only accelerate the problems.

    This protest movement has a violent under current which we have seen as the black lives matter movement burned down cities and created a haze of violence. There is a criminal touch to the whole proceeding which is why I find their bogus protests disgusting. Which is why I feel like throwing the TV out the window when CNN paints these assholes as concerned peace abiding citizens.

    And one other thing. While I do believe some of the black players "respect" the military many of these spoiled jerks could give a rat's ass. And many of them can't stand anything to do with white customs.How else to explain the Steelers hanging their veteran teammate out to dry during the Anthem last season?

    I think that Trump shouldn't have cancelled the event. If only 10 people showed up it would have exposed the anti-American attitude these NFL players have.

    That’s exactly what this is all about. 100% spot on.

    Blacks are simply mad that cops interfere with their criminality. Whether it be speeding, driving without a license, smoking weed in public or stealing skittles and swisha sweets, blacks want no consequences for their actions.

    Blacks and all the left's entitled groups are paranoid about their "Privilege" being revoked, they act as if one slip and it's over for them, back to the fields. Part of the paranoia comes from them being around other leftists groups who they know would sell them out in a second

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Julian Edelman is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy but is appealing. This kind of news isn't supposed to get out before the appeals process is through, but it usually does. Like the vast majority of suspended players, Edelman is likely to lose his appeal. It's a major blow for a team that let Danny Amendola walk in free agency before trading Brandin Cooks. Of course, the Pats were already without Edelman in 2017 as he recovered from a torn ACL. He's turned 32 in the interim. Chris Hogan is now set up to be a fantasy monster for the first four weeks of the season, though Tom Brady's target delineation figures to be unpredictable. Including James White, Rex Burkhead, Kenny Britt, Jordan Matthews, Malcolm Mitchell and perhaps even sixth-rounder Braxton Berrios, there is no shortage of potential beneficiaries.

    Maybe the Patriots could sign Eric Decker who is still a free agent.

    I don't see Decker doing the stuff Edelman does. I can see them trying to use Burkhead in his place. I'd rather Burkhead be a RB but for a short period the Pats might do something like that.

    Josey Jewell looking like the next Chris Borland:

    Josey Jewell ‘mixing in’ with Broncos’ top defensive unit

    According to Mike Klis, Josey Jewell has been ‘mixing in’ with the Denver Broncos’ top defensive unit. This is a big development for the rookie…
    According to 9News Denver Broncos insider Mike Klis, rookie linebacker Josey Jewell has made quite the impression so far at OTAs.

    Just ahead of the team’s mandatory minicamp, Klis reported that Jewell has been ‘mixing in’ with the team’s top defensive unit.

    Cameron Parker wrote about a month ago about the type of instant impact Jewell can make on this Broncos team, and it looks like he’s progressing in their system rather quickly.

    Jewell was considered one of the most NFL-ready linebackers coming out of Iowa, but he didn’t test ridiculously well at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

    Because of his lack of a sub 4.6-second 40-yard dash time, Jewell fell to the Broncos near the top of the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft despite racking up 433 total tackles and 28 tackles for loss in four seasons at Iowa.

    Jewell’s production appears to be, on film, very translatable to the next level.

    Despite the fact that he doesn’t run a great 40-yard dash time, Jewell is incredibly instinctive and understands how to win before the snap. He does a great job of diagnosing plays and using technique to attack the line of scrimmage and make plays.

    Jewell has wasted no time making an impression on veteran players, including veteran defensive tackle Domata Peko, who told the media he doesn’t take the time to learn rookies’ names until they actually make the final 53-man roster.

    With that said, Peko referred to Jewell as ‘Jo-ell’ and remembered that he was from Iowa.

    While other rookies were identified by their jersey numbers, Peko called Jewell by name, or at least his version of it.

    That’s the type of impression Jewell is making on veteran players in Denver already. Brandon Marshall also singled out Jewell as a rookie that has really impressed him.

    For those who have followed Jewell’s career since his college days, this comes as no surprise whatsoever.

    As a fourth-round pick, Jewell was one of the best players the Broncos could have hoped to draft. He looks like he’s going to quickly develop into a player that eats up snaps for this defense, and could steal some from Todd Davis as early as this season.

    The article has a couple of gifs that aren't reproduced below. Chad Hansen can easily be the next outstanding White outside receiver, joining Jordy Nelson, Adam Thielen, Chris Hogan, and Eric Decker (who should be starting for a team but is currently still unsigned).

    Making The Year Two Jump: Wide Receiver Chad Hansen

    by Connor Rogers

    While the Jets have a very crowded wide receiver depth chart at the moment, it’s safe to assume Mike Maccagnan would like to see progress from each of the receivers he took in the 2017 NFL Draft in ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen.


    Neither were particularly productive as rookies last season, but it’s not time to hit the panic button just yet on the former third and fourth round selections. What can they bring in 2018?

    Let’s start with Hansen in this edition, who has wasted little time turning heads during OTA’s.

    Height: 6’2″
    Weight: 202 lbs.
    4th round, 141st overall pick
    2017 season (rookie): 9 receptions, 94 yards

    Coming out of college, Hansen was known as the go-to target in the Cal offense where the production in his final season was absurd (as seen below). He caught everything that came his way and did a good job of getting up field with the ball in his hands.

    Throughout a relatively quiet rookie season for the Jets last year, we saw his ability to find the soft spot in a zone and even climb the ladder to win the football in the air at times.

    His opportunities were limited until the final few weeks of the season but there weren’t any glaring ‘rookie mistakes’ during that stretch.

    While much of his catches came underneath in the middle of the field, his best play was against a talented New Orleans secondary where he won off the line of scrimmage (a concern as a prospect) and tracked the ball perfectly:

    After a year where the sample size is so limited, what can we expect from Hansen in year two working in such a crowded receiver depth chart?

    Oddly enough, he can very well be an x-factor. The Jets top two targets are too talented to become unseat from play, but Quincy Enunwa is working his way back from neck surgery while Robby Anderson could miss a game or two due to suspension.

    Those two factors make depth key, with Jermaine Kearse, Terrelle Pryor and Hansen being the assumed no. 3-5 receivers on the roster.

    Pryor has become a much more popular name after a breakout 2016 in Cleveland, but Hansen is the one who has been on the field this Spring.

    With superb hands and the ability to work back to the quarterback, he’s a good fit with third overall pick Sam Darnold who has a knack for extending plays with his legs.

    The key things to keep an eye on in training camp with Hansen is his overall play strength (he had a lot of room to add to his frame coming out of school), the timing in his routes and regaining his form as a threat with the ball in his hands after the catch.

    The Jets are often classified as a ‘rebuilding’ team (which is justified), but the wide receiver group is the deepest on the team. Hansen will have his work cut out for him in year two, but his size profile and skill set make him an intriguing option for Gang Green’s offense in 2018.

    Nate Gerry has been getting first team reps at WLB at Eagles mini-camp. Our Lads currently has him listed as the starter at that position. Joe Walker and Paul Worrilow are listed as backups at MLB.

    More on Gerry. Considering how weak his competition is he has a good shot at starting this season:

    Nate Gerry dropped back into coverage and picked off a pass from Foles during a team snap. Gerry is in the competition for the weakside linebacker spot once owned by Mychal Kendricks. He's in that competition with Kamu Grugier-Hill and free agent pickup Corey Nelson. Gerry continues to push hard.

    But no one is interested in Eric Decker. It wasn't much better last year when Tennessee was the only team that wanted him and he ended up having a bad year statistically on a team with a poor throwing QB.

    Cardinals signed WR Greg Little. The second-round bust has not caught a regular season pass since 2014. That's not going to change in 2018.
