    No, he actually got a nice hole and he burst right through it. Its on NFL.com if you want to watch. [video]http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/09000d5d8255e9f0/Gerhart-67-yard-sprint[/video]

    Yeah guys like Newton never have games like this....Oh wait he had 3 games this season with 3 or more interceptions.

    Most quarterbacks throw a ton of short passes. I saw a ton of deep pass attempts by Tebow which leads to lower completion ratio and more chance of an interception. Most qbs take a few deep shots a game. Thats why their completion ratio is close to 70 percent, lots of short to mid range routes. Oh yeah, and who exactly is Tebow throwing to? I think Decker has some big play potential, but like Thomas, he is very raw.

    You want to see a convoy of blockers? go watch every time Ridley breaks off a run longer than 3 yards.

    Kudos to Andy Dalton for showing America what a successful rookie quarterback looks like. I doubt the city of Cincinnati would trade their winning quarterback for a "stat accumulator" like Newton.


    Edit: And yet, immediately after typing that, I see the Fox Sports crawl on the bottom of the screen praising Newton for tallying some "passing yardage" record. Somebody refresh my memory, I forgot when the NFL changed the rules of football, converting yardage into points.

    On November 4 1984, Craig James went over 100 against Denver. On Monday night, November 5, John Riggins gained 100 against Atlanta. Not on the same day, but on the same weekend.

    I checked Pro Football Reference.

    Newton broke the record for passing yardage by a rookie QB, originally set by Peyton Manning in 1998.

    Peyton did it in a different era. It has become easier to throw.

    Hillis now has 557 yards rushing and raised his ypc to around 3.7. Maybe he can get close to 700 yards for the season and raise his ypc closer to 4.

    as for Tebow "finally throwing it", he had 62 attempts the past two games against New England and Chicago.

    Newton's had a very good rookie season. Will he be able to sustain it? This was the year Josh Freeman was supposed to develop into a full-blown superstar and look how that's turned out. Dalton, Locker and Ponder look like the real deal, it's been another outstanding season for White QBs in general, a mere one or two good black QBs after 12 years of really pushing them is still a big-time defeat for the Caste System.

    Peyton Manning has played his entire career in an era in which it was "easier to throw" than pre-1978.

    1978 wasn't the only time the passing game changed, it expanded in the 2000's with evolution of passing schemes, the west cost offense is more complex etc, not to mention the flags for just touching a receiver the wrong way, I remember it not being this bad 10 years ago. Plus the play of defenive backs has gotten awful. Its gotten worse every single year. The quarterbacks putting up big numbers ARE elite (Brady, Rodgers, Brees), but there is no way those 3 would all be on pace for 5k in 1998.

    Haven't posted in a while, but it was nice to see two white RBs post 100+ yard games, which makes 3 different white players with 100+ rushing games on the season. This is a nice contrast to 2 seasons ago when we didn't see it happen at all! With Welker having a big game that this makes a nice Christmas present. Hopefully Nelson has a great game tomorrow, and maybe Kuhn will get some touches and score a TD or two. That would make the best weekend in a long, long time!

    Philip Rivers throws a perfect short pass to Mike Tolbert. It clanks off him and caroms right into the hands of a Lions defender, who also drops it. It's such a shame that black players are forced to try and use their hands in today's NFL; surely racism is to blame.

    I didn't realize that they were playing most of the games today, ah well. Nice stats today from Gerhart, Hillis and Welker. It's a shame Gronk didn't get another TD. Looks like Tebow had a horrible game with 4 INTs, that's unfortunate.

    Superman Adrian Peterson's dominance is due to pass away like a faded flower. With the injuries Peterson is sustaining Toby Gerhart should surpass him next season, Peterson shall go the way of Tomlinson and Alexander.

    Did I see a white man scoring a TD for the Jets on offense? Backup tightend Josh Baker looks white but also looks suspiciously wiggerish in some photos. Are white players on offense allowed to score for the Jets?

    This needs to be referred to as "the lockout season." Almost every QB had inflated numbers from Week 1 to 3.

    As Carolina's season has progressed, they've wisely chosen to use their running backs more. Thus, Newton's numbers are down, but the TEAM is now better...

    They are a better team with Newton as a GAME MANAGER rather than as The Man! Carolina had him in the role of "The Man" or "revolutionizer" for 8-10 games, and it DIDN'T work!

    Newton had 3 passing TDs and a 49 yard rushing TD today. He's been even better than the corporate media hoped he would be as a rookie. Good for him; no biggie. As others have posted, the occasional truly good black QB (if he turns out to be that) is also an argument for more Whites at the league's many black only positions.

    I hope Tebow bounces back next week. I have a feeling that no matter what he will not be Denvers QB next year. Hes done great staying positive in the face of the most pressure any football player has ever seen. Still, one look in his face shows how rattled he is. Who wouldnt be?

    Brent Celek is a beast. What a shame he has to play on a team that only uses black QBs. If Kevin Kolb had remained the starter, he would be up there with Witten and Gronkowski.

    Tolbert continues to get lots of touches as both a runner and receiver; I have yet to see him break or avoid a single tackle in this game, plus he's had a couple drops. But of course the more talented Jacob Hester remains completely ignored in the SD offense in the lopsided loss to Detroit in a must-win game for the Chargers.

    Shannon Sharpe did the post game highlights for the Browns/Ravens game. Not once did he mention the name Peyton Hillis. When talking about the Browns all he talked about was Seneca Wallace. Sharpe also did the Vikings/Redskins post game highlights. Not once was Toby Gerhart mentioned. Sharpe was slobbering all over Joe Webb. At the end of their show, before signing off Sharpe gave special recognition to Tarvaris Jackson and Cam Newton for their outstanding play this season. Phil Simms brought up Andrew Luck in the closing 10 seconds of the show, in an attempt to make a comment about him. Immediately Sharpe leaned over in front of Phil and started shouting MERRY CHRISTMAS!! multiple times so his comments about Luck could not be heard, and that was how the show ended. How pathetic.
    (I wonder if these analysts get to pick which games they are going to do the post game analysis for. What a coincidence Sharpe got both of those games.)

    I was going to say that it had to have happened around the time of James season in 85'. Hillis looks like he is rounding into the form he had last season. Every big game he has down the stretch will add dollars to his next contract.

    Remember that "analysts," even affirmative action hires like Sharpe, follow what they are told by producers and directors. Sharpe doesn't have free reign to say what he wants, he follows the directions of the Cultural Marxists who are the ones actually running things and who are far "sharper" than Shannon.
