    I saw the Bills signed QB Matt Barkley to a 2 year contract. Not a bad signing at all. Barkley has always come across as a professional and has displayed great poise going back to his days at USC. It's a good signing to stabilize the QB room and offer an intelligent player for Josh Allen to learn from as well as being a competent backup.

    Anyone hear Cris Carter talk about Josh Gordon and Pats? Besides all that, he mentioned how he went to israel with (((kraft))) and how Brady was begging him to get Gordon. He wanted a big tall receiver since Randy Moss left. It turns out Brady is a caste clown that doesn’t appreciate guys like Edelman and Hogan. It’s not surprising with the mudsharking in his family. It never sunk in he has won most of his championships with small receivers.

    Not sure how much stock I would put in Cris Carter's version of the Josh Gordon saga. Brady may have just been idly chatting and said something positive about Gordon, but he's very aware of how much Edelman, Welker and Amendola have meant to his individual and team success, not to mention bigger receivers like Hogan and Gronk. He'd have to be blind, deaf and dumb not to, and he's none of those, far from it.

    I will also add that Cris Carter said Pats have not had a 1k receiver since 2004 which is absoultely false.

    Thanks for the info PHillisFan. Not too long ago I actually used to like Cris Carter. Thought he was a very fair and objective commentator and analyst regarding all players, including whites. In the last two years, or so, he's taken a sharp turn left and has morphed into a Joe Morgan/Shannon Sharpe type, who is always bitching and moaning about "race" and demeaning white athletes every chance he gets. The false stats regarding the Patriots receivers doesn't surprise me a bit as he's clearly a rabidly anti-white stooge, along with his bizarre looking TV partner Nick Wright. I was really wondering what the heck happened to the old Cris Carter?

    The trip to israel explains a lot and certainly does not surprise me. Apparently now that Cris Carter is down with the "program" our Kosher friends in the media are pushing, it's inevitable that he'd start spewing anti-white rhetoric every chance he gets. After all, Cris must please his masters? Only question is, was he holding this anti-white/Gentile hate in for all those years or is he doing this just to please Robert Kraft types? My guess is the former.


    *********

    In other news, this time of year is usually pretty good for our "goys" on practice squads playing at non-caste positions, dating back to the 1990's. Final three or four weeks non-contending teams tend to place more veterans on IR with minor injuries and replace them with practice squad players in order to get an up close look at them in "meaningful games" and contractually "lock them up" for next season. DE Patrick O'Connor of the Buccaneers was an example last season. This season that has not happen at all, up to this point. I check the transactions several times a day and outside of some O-lineman, 3rd string quarterbacks, tight ends and kicking specialists no whites have been promoted in recent weeks. This is likely due to an overall league-wide drop of white defenders on practice squads?


    Notable goys stuck on non-playoff team's practice squads for most of the season: Denver WR Chad Hansen; Buffalo WR Tanner McEvoy; Miami LB Quentin Poling; Oakland S Dallin Leavitt; Tampa Bay DE Patrick O'Connor and San Francisco WR Maxwell McCaffery.


    Notable goys stuck on contenders practice squads for most of the season: Los Angeles Rams WR Austin Proehl; Seattle SS Justin Currie; Kansas City DT Joey Ivie; New England LB Calvin Munson; Chicago RB Ryan Nall; Chicago WR Tanner Gentry; Minnesota DE Curtis Cothran and Philadelphia OLB Joe Ostman.



    Only notable practice squad additions this week are: Brandon Reilly, who should've started the season as the Bills #3 receiver, recently signed to Detroit's p-squad. Also, Jets signed ex-Dartmouth safety Charlie Miller to their PS. I seriously doubt either will be promoted this season.

    Yes CC has taken the Stephen A Smith route. I can’t stand Nick Wright. Besides having a punch worthy mug he always seems like a suck up cuck and afraid to offend his negro co-host. Given the needs at receiver of some of these teams such as Buffalo it’s amazing that guys like Reilly and McEvoy aren’t good enough to be on the 40 man roster.

    Nick Wright, by his own admission, is part Jewish...

    https://twitter.com/getnickwright/status/250935101758783488?s=21

    He’s also married to a black woman. From what I’ve seen of him, he is the most cucked, anti-white analysts on ESPN.

    Haha, do you have a video of him saying this? I know his goal is to diminish the accomplishments of the white Patriot WR’s (Welker - 5 times, Edelman - 2 times, Gronk - 4 times) who’ve gone over 1,000 yards, but Randy Moss and Brandin Cooks also eclipsed the mark during that time. Brandon LaFell and Brandon Lloyd fell just short, as did Edelman and Hernandez.

    Also, nobody on the Pats had a 1,000-yard season in 2004. Maybe he’s talking about Deion Branch, who had 998 yards in 2005.

    I agree that Cris Carter has changed. After NE won SB 51 against the Falcons (starting 3 white WR’s), Carter said something like: “for the last few seasons, NFL defenses have had no answer for Edelman, Amendola, and Hogan.” [Even though this was Hogan’s first year with the Pats]

    This is from Weenieworld, and makes sense. At 41, this really did seem to stand a good chance of being Tom Brady's last hurrah, but the many inexplicable personnel moves we've discussed this season backfired. Brady to Hogan all season, and Chad Hansen slowly worked in as a second deep threat (especially with Gronk in swift decline) made so much more sense than continually force-feeding the ball to the lumbering, washed-up Josh Gordon, not to mention the sumo o-line and traditional crap defense. Oh well, maybe they'll still pull a rabbit out of their hat in the playoffs this year in spite of themselves.

    According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there is a "growing sense" the Patriots could see a "significant exodus of coaching and front-office talent" this offseason. The Patriots have had a subpar year, at least by their usual standards, and seem to be nearing the end of their decades-long dynasty. With concerns over the team's future including owner Robert Kraft's diminishing role in day-to-day operations, coaches and execs could be eager to move on before the Patriots begin their inevitable rebuild. One league executive who spoke to La Canfora remarked, "This is the time to get out, and those guys know it." OC Josh McDaniels, who has been reluctant to leave the safety net of Foxboro in years past, could be more amenable to outside opportunities this year while LBs coach/de-facto DC Brian Flores may also entertain offers to go elsewhere. With Tom Brady finally showing signs of decline and Rob Gronkowski looking like a shell of his former, pre-injury self, New England's days of being an AFC powerhouse could be coming to an abrupt end.

    The organization - Kraft, BB, personnel and scouting should all be held accountable. They have been one of the worst drafting teams. Credit where credit is due - BB starting with Welker did have a good run of bringing in underutilized white players from other teams and struck gold late in the draft with Edelman. That has been the core of their success outside of Tom Brady who has driven the organization.

    Sounds like Vance Joseph and Steve Wilks are both going to be fired. The Fritz Pollard alliance, BSPN etc. are going to be complaining once again about the rooney rule and lack of minority head coaches once these two hacks get canned. They won't mention the discrimination facing white athletes from High School to college to the NFL though.

    Right on analysis. Other than taking Edelman late and putting him through a racial apprenticeship, and taking Gronk and Nate Solder, their drafting has been as reliably bad as any team's.

    And none of those white players needed the Patriot organization to provide “round the clock security” to make sure they weren’t using narcotics or smoking marijuana. This article about Josh Gordon is so pathetic and reminds me of how the Cowboys’ Dez Bryant was assigned a “round the clock” bodyguard to make sure he didn’t do anything illegal. I remember reading that Bryant punched the bodyguard in the bathroom of a casino.

    Josh Gordon, the man-child who needed 24-7 babysitting from his employer and still managed to get high. He may be the biggest screw-up in NFL history...

    https://bleacherreport.com/articles...iple-drug-policy-violations-before-suspension

    “ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Gordon was assigned people with him at all times by the Patriots, but the wideout slipped through the security plan.”

    Here you go Thrashen. The 1:02-1:10 mark. I made a mistake on the actual year. He did not say 2004. He actually said 2007, which is still wrong as you know having posted the stats above.

    The Arizona Cardinals appear to be the blackest, most caste team in the NFL. They’re also the worst team. Black head coach Steve Wilks is deservedly on the verge of being fired. However, WR Larry Fitzgerald tells NFL.com that “all the players want Coach Wilks to return next season.”

    Newest rumor of the Jets. It's that the Jets are thinking of hiring Jim Harbaugh. He'd be nuts to go to the Jets and not to demand to be GM as well. If he goes to the Jets and isn't GM as well, they will work feverishly to undermine anything he does. After all - it's the Jets.

    Start preparing now for the most nauseating television coverage of a Super Bowl yet. Somehow I don't think any non-communist Whites will ever be included in the ultra-left's "beloved community":

    Murals near stadium highlight Atlanta's civil rights legacy

    As Atlanta prepares to host the Super Bowl, artists there are painting murals that highlight the city's civil rights and social justice legacy.

    The artwork adorning neighborhoods near the downtown stadium where the game will be played is part of an initiative called "Off The Wall: Atlanta's Civil Rights and Social Justice Journey." The project is a collaboration between arts advocacy group WonderRoot and the Super Bowl host committee. While the murals' installation was timed to coincide with the Feb. 3 sports extravaganza, they are meant to be lasting public works of art for Atlantans to enjoy long after the football fans have left.

    The idea was to celebrate Atlanta's role in the civil rights struggle of the 1950s and 1960s and connect that rich legacy with more contemporary struggles for justice and equality, WonderRoot executive director Chris Appleton said.

    "We definitely have works that, for good reason, make Atlanta proud of its role in the civil rights movement and the human rights movement, and we have murals that invite and challenge us in Atlanta to continue striving for that beloved community," Appleton said.

    The term "beloved community" was made popular by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., an Atlanta native, to describe a society centered on equal opportunity and justice and rooted in the philosophy of nonviolence.

    Several dozen "community conversations" brought out unheard and untold stories about the struggle for justice that needed to be elevated, Appleton said. The artists sat in on those conversations and used them to inform their mural designs, which then went through two rounds of community feedback.

    "I really believe the artists have done a great job of amplifying and complexifying narratives around justice issues in Atlanta and beyond," Appleton said. "The murals, as a collection, are celebratory in some cases, are aspirational in some cases and are rooted in truth-telling."

    A nomination and selection committee invited artists from around the country to apply, and the panel chose 10 applicants. An 11th spot, dubbed "Atlanta's choice," was open only to Atlanta area artists and was voted on by the public. In total, they plan to install roughly 30 murals.

    Muhammad Yungai, the muralist selected by public vote, drew inspiration from a community conversation held at Spelman College, where he learned about students who volunteered at a nearby community farm.

    His mural, "Community Roots," is on a wall in Atlanta's Castleberry Hill neighborhood. It showcases actual students from four historically black colleges and universities in Atlanta - Spelman, Morehouse, Clark Atlanta and Morris Brown - and the produce they help grow. He wanted to shine a light on the four schools, which sit a stone's throw from Mercedes Benz Stadium, where the Super Bowl will be played, and on urban farming and community gardening.

    The 44-year-old middle school art teacher and professional muralist said his work often focuses on education.

    "I believe education is the biggest thing that we can do as a culture to ensure that everyone can achieve the life they want," Yungai said.

    Shanequa Gay, 40, was inspired by a community conversation at Covenant House, which provides housing and support for homeless young people. Her mural, "Excuse me while I kiss the sky," adorns the walls of the Vine City transit station, across the street the stadium.

    Gay said she wanted to represent people who sleep under the trees and bushes. Dark outlines of leaves and flowers that she said are inspired by Georgia's abundant vegetation are layered over brightly colored profiles of young people she met at Covenant House.

    "I went and took photographs of these young people making kissy faces to kind of humanize homelessness because we don't attribute kissing with being homeless - or joy or laughter or young people," she said.

    Jim Caldwell is "in the running" for the Packers head coaching job, even Rotoworld isn't buying this weak idea, meanwhile from this file photo, Caldwell looks like he is on a Post Office most wanted list for Medicare fraud........http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9289/jim-caldwell

    Barkley also probably made up for his mistake in not declaring early for the NFL draft and seeing his draft stock plummet in his senior year.

    From what I have read he is pretty philosophical about not cashing his lottery ticket.

    In the perpetually barren 2nd string market a good game or 2 can net you multi-millions on the open market.

    Leonard Johnson is someone we discussed here at CF during the 2012 Combine. The cornerback from Iowa State caught our attention when his best official 40 time in Indy was 4.72.

    Arizona Cardinals released the 7 year veteran yesterday. Johnson came into the league as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and started quite a bit during his career. Even started 6 games as a rookie in Tampa.

    Think a white tailback, wide receiver or safety (let alone a white cornerback) would ever get a serious look possessing 4.72/40 speed in the current NFL? Heck, some white linebackers could see their draft stock plummet with that 40 time.

    Rhodes himself and Favre probably got Rhodes fired. I thought Favre had something to do with it since he mentioned that he basically was coming up with offensive game plans and that Rhodes spent more time in the locker room playing dominos with some of the players than coaching.
