    The GM of the jets just signed some marginal black receiver to an extension of his contract. My thought is this. He did that also to send a message to the two top guys who might be thinking of coaching the Jets, Mike McCarthy and Jim Harbaugh (they're the only two with enough clout to ask to be coach and GM together). He wants to deter them from taking on the job of Jet head coach and protect his job. But it also is to protect himself because anyone with an ounce of sense would want to be coach and GM, knowing the track record of JET front office personnel undermining head coaches efforts over the years.

    I would prefer the left be honest and tell us they discriminate against white men, but we even allow them the luxury of not even having to deny it. We would be better off in the long run if we knew they were openly biased against us. Truth be told though, I have been treated very well by a good many blacks over the years, but as a whole this system just stinks.

    Beat me to it Tom. I believe the WR got something like 20 million guaranteed. It's beyond asinine.


    The Chiefs signed a scrub RB who has averaged less than 4 ypc in his first 4 years in the league to a 2 year extension as well. Meanwhile Ryan Nall is on a PS, Brandon Wegher has been out of football for a few years now, Zenner still won't be looked at as a viable RB.

    Chiefs signed RB Damien Williams to a two-year extension through 2020.

    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the extension has a "max value" of $8.1 million. It is surely heavily incentive laden. The 26-year-old ex-Dolphin has cleared 100 yards from scrimmage in back-to-back games and is averaging a robust 5.3 yards per carry on the year. Williams is also a capable pass catcher. Although the Chiefs clearly envision Williams as part of their post-Kareem Hunt backfield, all Williams' extension really guarantees is that he will be a part of next year's 53-man roster.

    The receiver is Quincy Enunwa, signed to a 4-year $36 million contract with just over $20 million guaranteed. In his four years in the NFL, he has had 0, 315, 857, and 449 yards receiving. He's also missed 11 of the past 40 games with a variety of injuries. A White receiver with those numbers and injury history would likely already have moved on to his "life's work" as Chuck Noll used to say after cutting players.

    Try asking liberals if they support the black South African government's confiscation of the land of white people. Most liberals will not even answer you because they support it and don't want to admit it publicly.

    49ers signed Max McCaffrey and some DL to their active roster, waiving two black WRs.

    EDIT: placed those two (RB and WR) on IR, rather than waived.

    THEY are telling us, quite loud and clear infact. At least they got the black coach not wanting a black female 'part' right.



    "I fight for every damn step I take" -- Is that the name of the new Jordy Nelson movie? Adam Thielen, perhaps? Outrageous treatment of White DBs?

    Crab Legs is playing far, far below the level that should be expected of a #1 overall pick.

    The Jets got rid of Todd Bowles but not the GM.

    Will we get the Mike MayCuck version from the last half decade or the prior version, who was one of the most fair mainstream draft analysts? Either way, this is an interesting hire. If Mayock fails, it will prove that these “draft experts” are little more than glorified DWFs and afrolete jock sniffers.

    My prediction is that Mikey goes full caste and bombs miserably as a GM.

    It will be interesting to see. I think we all thought Gruden had changed his tune during his time away from coaching but returned and did very little with the Raiders. I will have to see if Mayock has any rankings out there currently to see how he views this draft class. I am sure its filled with affletes as he sold out a long time ago.

    edit: did a quick search and it does not look like he put anything out since last year's post draft analysis.

    This Mayock news is pretty wild. Alternatingly annoying as a dental drill yet once and a while hits the spot.

    Proof will be in the pudding. Wonder who will fill his spot on the NFL network combine coverage?

    I had the NFL network on this morning....They were discussing the coaching situation and commented on the diversity problem that all the firing presents......This forced diversity crap is grating....

    At least the Mayock hiring is outside the box thinking, which is so rare in the NFL. I agree that we won't know which version we'll get, Mike the pretty fair draft analyst or the full-blown Maycuck of the past few years, much like the questions with Jon Gruden and his return but gotta think within two years the Raiders are going to be less black than they've been in a long time. Whether that means the typical NFL squad, say 5 White starters and 14 overall on the roster or something more White friendly is the question. There's a chance the Raiders could end up being a team to root for for the first time in eons. John Lynch was a similar surprise hiring and he's been pretty good so far with the 49ers on offense; unfortunately they've been wrecked by injuries the past two seasons.

    And Lewis is lobbying for Hue to replace him. Unreal, really. I can't imagine the Cincy fans going for that, but since when does the NFL or the NFL owners care about the average fan anyway, especially if he's White?

    I do wish some owner would throw mad money at Shaw from Stanford (who's darkening that team up quite a bit) or "Hatie" at Illinois and get them out of college football. It may actually come to that once the whining starts in earnest about the "lack of diversity" in the head coaching ranks in the NFL. The black head coach at Syracuse will probably be looked at, too.

    A bad head coach can't be covered up for very long, same as a quarterback. With everything else, from assistant coaches to most players, mediocrity and worse can be covered up, excused, ignored, etc. Horrendous "tackling," defensive backs who don't have a clue what they're doing, crap defenses in general, often a sumo or two or three as the weak links on the offensive line, wide receivers who can't learn basic "route trees" and lack the common sense to try to get open when the quarterback is being chased, the disappearance of many fundamentals, every black dominated position and "style of play" gets close to a free pass year after year from the Caste System and the media which props it up and propagates the Big Lie of black supremacy in all things sports.

    It amazes me that they can all talk about diversity considering the sport the channel is dedicated to is anything but diverse. The 800 lb gorilla in the room never gets addressed - just rinse/repeat every year about the diversity issues with NFL head coaches. Don't address the actual discrimination being face not just in the NFL but also in college and high school football. Virtue signaling at it's finest.

    It’s good to see Negro Monday live up to its name, 3 gone, Bowles yesterday and clueless Hue earlier this season for a total of 5 AA coaches canned. Tomlin needs to be gone as well, maybe the Steelers will have a talk and allow him to “resign”? That would be the best news of all.

    The only other black coach is the one in SD, who’ll louse things up soon enough. I’m not aware of any up and coming AA candidates waiting in the wings to fill these vacancies, so despite the diversity cries, they will most likely be filled witn white coaches.

    Rumor has it either Fitzgerald or McDaniel will be Green Bay's next HC.

    Amen and lets hope some common sense starts to emerge in the new year. Hope against hope maybe. I have never seen such bad black defensive play in the NFL and at the college level too. It is glossed over. And many of the black WRs don't even know what a route tree is beyond run down the field and look for the ball. This crap level of play is the result of relying on the black underwear Olympics as a way to measure football players. If they don't start fixing the problem the NFL will turn into arena football. It is half way there already. And this crap version of flag football will ultimately lose viewers.

    Freethinker, one thing that Mayock has going for him, is he was was an All-American DB at Boston College and played in the NFL for a few seasons (New York Giants?). I believe he might've even been a pro assistant coach for a while. So he is not your typical DWF "draft expert". Several years back, I believe Cleveland hired a real DWF "draft expert/fanboy" as a low level college scout and were ridiculed and mocked readily in league circles. I think his name was Russ Lande and he was hired when Cleveland re-entered the league as an expansion team.

    So, yes, I totally agree if an NFL team ever hired a Todd McGoy, Mel Kosher Jr. or fat Rob Rang as a GM or scout they would likely be roasted inside the league for bringing in an "outsider". Mayock has been "inside the club" for decades and will be accepted 100%. He just branched out into DWF territory with his draft stuff after he got into broadcasting.

    I wish Fitzgerald would stay at Northwestern. He has put together a quality program.
