    Holy Crap. What the hell is going on up there!? Is this penance for hiring so many whites the past 10 years?

    Well this story was started by TMZ, so it could well be fake.

    Yeah, they must be going crazy down there, having to "deal" with the Dolphins having the whitest roster in the league !!!! Ryan Tannehill has been subjected to unfounded criticism for his entire tenure in the league. I was glad to see O'Leary signed on to the practice squad. He's from Palm Beach and rooted for the Dolphins as a kid----it would be nice to see him get a shot somehow with his hometown team. He's an old-fashioned, all-around TE who can block and catch and a tough kid to boot---he didn't even wear gloves or long sleeves up here when he played in freezing weather !!!! He really got screwed over here, as they only kept Logan Thomas over him because he be a reformed quotaback and sh*****t and these fools traded A.J. McCarron away. In addition to being the grandson of Jack Nicklaus, O'Leary has one other special distinction----he was the ONLY white player ever drafted by Dougtavious Whaley !!!

    You would think the Bills with the problems they have at receiver would bring back a guy like Reilly who nearly caught almost everything, yet they hold on to guys like Benjamin and Foster who need gorilla glue to catch balls. Speaking of Logan Thomas, he has been inactive. He wasn't a good blocker like O'leary who could have proven useful run blocking considering our run game has struggled.

    First J. J. Watt missing most of the past two seasons, now this:

    Chargers DE Joey Bosa (foot) expects to be sidelined until at least Week 9. Bosa got his cast removed this week. He's making progress, but still has some instability in his foot. The Chargers are targeting a return for Bosa after their Week 8 bye. Isaac Rochell will hold down the starting spot opposite Melvin Ingram until Bosa returns.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Reilly performed better than Kelvin Benjamin, Robert Foster, and Zay Jones. There is absolutely no legitimate reason(hello, NFL Caste System) for that kid to have been cut yet again. Right before he was injured in that 1st pre-season game, he was the #3 WR on the depth chart, and had been in that spot going all the way back to OTAs. O'Leary is a good blocker and receiver. Logan Thomas is totally inept as a blocker and still frequently runs the wrong routes and misses his assignments----something that would be considered an embarrassment if he was a white former QB.

    Fantastic another young LB to cheer for. He was underrated at BC in college despite being a tackling machine.

    Very average WR is quitting the Titans. I wonder how many more chances he will get. Meanwhile Janis, Hansen, Billingsley etc. get no chance at all.

    Rishard Matthews - WR - Titans
    Rishard Matthews has reportedly left the Titans and does not intend to rejoin the team.

    Matthews' playing time has been scaled back significantly under Mike Vrabel's new coaching staff after he missed the entire offseason with injuries. He indicated Wednesday that he is upset with his usage. "I’ve been the leading receiver for two years," Matthews said on Instagram. "Then all of a sudden I’m barely playing and not even starting. Using my injury as the scapegoat. Look at number of snaps and targets." Matthews is an above-average No. 2 receiver, but the new coaches have no attachment to him. Expect more-explosive Taywan Taylor to benefit with increased playing time.

    (((David Tepper))) and his Carolina Panthers have signed Eric Reid----what a shocker---maybe they'll sign Kraepernick next to be Scam's back-up . In other revolting news straight out of the Caste Clown NFL Extravaganza, they are now apparently giving out "awards" just for properly executing a tackle. This week's Way To Play award went to none other than Marxist Media Maven darling par excellence', Shaquem "Hokey-Pokey" Griffin. Imagine a white player missing a hand even getting a tryout with a professinal team, let alone ever being drafted !!!!

    Broncos TE Jake Butt tore his acl in a non contact drill during practice . 3rd ACL injury of his career. Sad to see his potential career sidetracked by injuries, he had potential coming out of Michigan.

    The Fins are becoming a watchable team in some respects and I can appreciate Tannehill and the leadership skills and savy he shows there. Makes us wonder how successful he could be with more "diversity" surrounding him. :)

    Marquette King lasted all of 4 weeks in Denver.

    Broncos will waive him after putting him on IR today

    From an article on MileHighReport:

    King signed a three-year. $6 million contract with the Broncos in April, but Denver won’t suffer too much pain on the dead money side of things as King will count just $166,666 against the cap through 2020. They will also eat $1.5 million of King’s salary this season.

    In the Mile High air, King has not impressed through three games. Against the Kansas City Chiefs, he had a net of just 28.7 yards. The Broncos obviously hope to get better production out of Wadman moving forward.



    So many productive and proven White players over the years not making a whole lot more than the minimum salary, yet a mediocre (at best) black punter is able to sign a contract like that? #BlackPrivilege

    Chad Hansen has finally been picked up, he was signed to the Titans PS! Atleast he's not a FA anymore, only time will tell if he gets a chance there.

    Good news, far too talented to be unemployed!

    Green Bay has promoted DL Tyler Lancaster from their PS to active roster!

    I watched a couple of games where O'Leary was making the career for the Quota like Olsen made Scam's career (which would otherwise be a highlight reel of overthrown passes).

    Free agent QB Landry Jones has worked out for the Bills, Cowboys, Jaguars and Lions.

    Jones has been on the market for over a month now. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the former Steeler is expected to find a job soon. The 29-year-old isn't starting material but he's been a competent backup throughout his career.


    Would love for the Bills to sign him and let Allen sit and learn for the rest of the year. Buffalo is playing russian roulette by marching Allen out there behind that terrible OL with no skill position players to assist.

    Jones should be on a team somewhere already. There's no way he isn't good enough to be at least a backup.

    The mainstream media attacked Jones from the day he was drafted. They do this to a lot of white players. You wonder if this bad publicity might have had an effect on Jones signing somewhere.

    As Leonardfan suggested the Bills would be smart to sign Jones and not throw Allen to the wolves. Jones might surprise people and do well as a starter.

    I concur with both Leonardfan and Extra Point. I thought that Landry Jones was the best prospect of the QBs that came out in the 2013 draft and was immensely disappointed when the Bills wasted a 1st round pick on Ebony Jenkum Manuel instead. Jones should definitely not be unemployed. Look at all the extra years Josh Johnson(was) and Joe Webb(still is) have been robbing paychecks for, long after they have proven beyond a reasonable doubt their total incompetence at playing QB in the NFL. The Bills need to get Josh Allen out of there ASAP before he gets seriously injured and/or is psychologically damaged to the point of no return. It looks like they are going to sign Derek Anderson instead, going to the well once again on the Carolina connections of both the coach and the GM. While I would've preferred Jones, it's better than bringing in some Quotaback !!!!
