    I didn't either, and for a while in that game it looked like they might indeed cut down Witten's role to please TO and his black WR corp buddies. Perhaps, maybe one of the positives about Tony Romo being a Caztiso is that he isn't as inclined to have to bow under the caste as much, because he himself is of a protected class. T.O. might just have to learn that he isn't a top WR in the league any longer and that he is going to have to shut his mouth and accept his role (oh the irony) if he wants any kind of future in the NFL.

    Another thing about Romo is that he is a real competitor. He strikes me as one of those guys that really wants to win, period, no matter how it gets done or who gets the glory. Don't know the man personally, of course, but that's how he seems to play on the field. That drive to win will also keep him throwing the ball to whomever is open and to whoever will catch it.

    I have always thought it funny that John Madden is considered a Football Oracle. When coaching the Raiders (1969-78), Madden was considered a lightweight. It was Al Davis who made the decisions on trades, drafts, and cuts, not the "head coach." During the 1970's, Davis was fairly competent, unlike today.

    Don's right, Witten, after all the idiotic "controversy," ended up saving the game for his african squad. Michaels and Madden barely noticed this huge, momentum-changing play, shocking.

    Witten ran a quick route past the Giants "affletes," and then drug a tiny black DB another 3 yards for the 1st down. Dallas scored on the next play, after gaining the momentum, and won the game.

    TO, despite his almost infinate blathering to the media, did nothing special during the game.

    Jerry Jones, perhaps the Caste Overlord of the entire NFL, was smiling like a slimy little reptile.

    Hopefully the Cowboys can be "useful idiots" for our cause. If they beat the Ravens next week, and the Pats win out, Cassell and the Pats will make the wildcard.

    I'll be glad when Jerry Jones passes from the scene. He makes me sick! [​IMG]

    Agreed! I watch the Giants every week and knew that Boothe was awful. Prior to yesterday, I had only seen him in limited pre-season minutes. However, after seeing last nights game I can confidently say Boothe is probably the fattest, least athletic, worst sumo lineman I have seen. This is quite a statement considering the terrible state of the NFL [​IMG].

    Ware and the other Dallas players blew right past him nearly every time. In his most pathetic showing, he attempted to pull out to the sideline for a WR screen pass. Well the catch was made but Boothe was terribly slow to rumble over there resulting in a tackle for a loss, Boothe needing oxygen after his "run" and a small earthquake in the next county over. The Super Bowl champs should be embarrassed that they let this doughy blob on the field to "protect" Eli.

    It's great to see Coy Wire get a chance to start and have a huge game for the Falcons. He had 96 tackles for the Bills as a safety as a rookie in '02 but has been a backup ever since. It took Michael Boley playing poorly all season for Wire to get his chance but at least he got it. At age 30 he's served an even longer racial apprenticeship than most.


    Wire's a great athlete. He played both ways for Stanford and was even their leading rusher one season.

    Kevin Curtis with an absolutely beautiful 14 yard TD grab, beating the CB one on one!

    Philly/Browns game-- Kyle Eckel-- another white running back given no chance of a decent nfl career gets some carries in garbage time when everyone knows it will be a run.

    Why do these nfl teams even have white running backs if this is how they use them? It seems white running backs are used merely for plug in injuries and practice squad members and full backs only.

    Yeah, no kidding, It makes whites look like they can't produce a decent yards per carry when they are used like Eckel was. Even Adrian Peterson wouldn't produce a good ypc in that situation. There was about 9 defenders in the box.

    Also, McNabb doesn't look to Curtis enough in the passing game. When he does throw to Curtis; Curtis usually makes the catch if it isn't a horrible throw. Curtis gets open real well, but McNabb often doesn't even look at him. If McNabb does look his way, he usually just barely glances it him in the first second after the snap. If Curtis had a QB who believed in him; he'd be a 80 or 90 catch a season guy.

    Tony Kornholer kept saying that the Eagles have never had a dominant receiver for McNabb other than "crybaby" Owens, but that Desean Jackson might be that guy now.

    What? Curtis had more yards last year than Jackson has had this year, but he is somehow already better than Curtis. Kornholer is as caste as they come and I have never heard him say anything positive about Curtis. I do believe though that the Eagles would be best to start both Curtis and Jackson; they are the Eagles two best WRs. The Eagles should have Jason Avant in the slot and Hank Baskett as their 4th option. They should also start Celek over L.J Smith at TE IMO.

    I hate the MNF trio, they virtually always ignore any and all white players, while singing the praises of the blacks. I thought about muting the TV and tuning to WestWood One, but I wonder if that's any better.

    Also, I witnessed a twilight zone moment of sorts in tonight's game. I believe at one point (1st half) there was a white player in the Brown's defense, on the secondary, in fact. Do I need to have my eyes examined, or is there indeed a white defensive player on the Brown's roster?

    If so, was he playing because the 10th and 11th string blacks were injured, and what will the Browns do to make sure this never happens again? I mean, we have, what, 4-5 whites on the secondary in the entire NFL? Gotta make sure the numbers are kept in check. [​IMG]

    Curtis n Jackson seem to be pretty much equal physical wise, to me at least, but Curtis has very reliable hands, and his experience shud give him the 1st WR spot. Who is the the eagles 1st WR by the way?

    Curtis is still the #1, but with the ESPN/Luginbill media love-fest starting for Jackson to be named to that spot. Jackson is not going to match Curtis's totals from last year when Curtis played all 16 games. I pretty much agree that Curtis and Jackson are similar type players; but Curtis has a slight edge in hand reliability and I would say has a couple inches in height on Jackson and has more strength. Curtis is also a smarter player (he wouldn't throw the ball over his head before he crossed into the end-zone to showboat). This makes up for the very slight disadvantage in straight lined speed Curtis has to Jackson.

    Both are lightning quick off the line and get in and out of cuts like a bolt!

    The media loves to show long TD plays -- except for one. I wasn't able to watch football Sunday except for the evening game, and eagerly waited to see a replay or three of Jerheme Urban's big 50 yard TD reception.


    I still have yet to see the play on any of the video recaps of the game. I just went to NFL.com and somehow the play isn't on the 3 minute highlight reel of the Cardinals-Vikings game. [​IMG]


    And the long AP article on the game in today's sports section doesn't mention the play at all, Arizona's only big offensive play in what was otherwise avery disappointing performance by Kurt Warner & Co.Another whiteout of a non-Casteperformance that didn't follow the intended script.Edited by: Don Wassall

    In a similar vein, the girls in the booth gushed over Marshall's 127 yards against the Jets, though they had said nothing at all about Peyton Hillis' 129 yards against them (I mean the girls caling the game).

    "The media loves to show long TD plays -- except for one. I wasn't able to watch football Sunday except for the evening game, and eagerly waited to see a replay or three of Jerheme Urban's big 50 yard TD reception."


    Jerheme Urban and Kevin Walter must have the highest YPC average this season. Both of these guys are big-play machines. Whenever Urban is on the field (he's usually the 3rd or 4th WR), he makes a 50+ yard reception. He did the same thing last season (with very limited snaps.

    Walter seems to explode in similar fashion (his pattern has been every other week).

    Fitzgerald and Bolden are just as athletic as Urban, but he's noticably faster. It's been beautiful to see Urban succeed this season. Urban has the caste Porky Pig, Mike Holmgren, to thank for being allowed to sign with the Cards. After years of toture and racial apprenticeship behind losers like Koren Robinson and Deon Branch, Urban is going to the playoffs and the caste walrus Holmgren is having his worst season to date. Justice?

    I just rewatched the first half of the Saints game to prove some dwf's on a saints board wrong about Strief, they kept going on and on about he got abused all game long and only did well when he received tight end help.

    They overloaded his side constantly and he only got beat once, and he received tight end help only twice, one was a dump off which was like an extended hand off.

    However the black RG Evans got beat quite a few times and nothin was said.

    Then later in the half they mentioned how the Left side was constantly getting blown up because of Zach Strief but when they replayed it, only one play was Zach Strief getting beat, the others were Jahri Evans who is on the right side. So to a casual observer of the game they would not know the difference.

    Also, they did mention how unathletic he was at every chance. Even when he did something athletic they mentioned how he was unathletic yet somehow managed to do what he just did like "not an athletic guy but he still somehow managed to run out there and lay out a good block"

    This was for the Bears game, of course his performance against the lions was dismissed because it was the lions.

    If a black player excels it doesn't matter who it is against, scrubs, anybody, it is praised like it is great no matter what.Edited by: dwid
