    No one seemed to notice but Justin Watson was finally forced into action for TB. 5 catches on 8 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown. It’s a shame that his talent is being wasted behind the immortal Breshad Perriman.

    Edelman is only 48 yards away from his 3rd 1,000-yard season! That would be great for his chances at the HOF.

    CMAC is closing in on 2000 yards ( I think he has 1946). Anyways its fun watching him climb up the all time list. Laird got it going late in the game, should have an easier go of it next couple of weeks.

    I was a big fan of Watson's when he came out in the 2018 draft. To me he was one of the top receivers in the draft but lasted until the 5th round because of racial discrimination.

    Former scout Greg Gabriel, who writes for Pro Football Weekly, had a high opinion of him before the draft.

    He'll break 5,000 for his career next week, putting him right there with Emit Smith's pace of all time yards from scrimmage among RB's. He would need to play 9-10 more years at close to his current pace to break Smiths record among RB's. As you said. it's fun watching him climb the list.

    Young white QBs getting it done. Drew Lock dominated the coal-black Texans. Sam Darnold, Jimmy G., and the much-maligned-earlier-this-season Kirk Cousins lead their teams to victory.

    Thanks for all of the updates. Been helping a friend move and out of the loop a bit. Love this site for the info.

    Very happy to see Patrick Laird get to rush the ball 15 times and also be involved in the receiving game. It would
    have been even better if Zenner could have got a few carries but he just got there. I'm sure next week we will see him get
    a few chances in the running or passing game.

    Packers, Vikings, Niners, and so many other teams looked good today. The Bills almost won. Two many drops by the receivers.

    Brady's third down pass to Jacoby Myers...right through his hands.

    Can we talk smack about black WR? NE black WR couldn't buy a clue on Black Friday. Jeez a blitz about announced on the jumbotron and still the wideout is oblivious

    Chargers dominating the Blacksonville Jaguars at halftime, 24-3. Joey Bosa, Drue Tranquill, Hunter Henry, Derek Watt, and of course Philip Rivers in on the action.

    Ryan Tannehill with 224 passing yards and 2 TDs at halftime

    Edit: Make it 263 yards. There was still 19 seconds left when I wrote the above and Ryan promptly threw for 39 yards to Firkser. 263 yards is about two games worth for Mariota.

    Two white players - McCaffrey and Laird - being the primary rushers for their respective teams on the same day, nice to see.

    New England's offensive line is crap. Brady has no time to throw at all. Maybe they need to run the ball more.

    Nick O'Leary with the TD pass from Minshew.

    This is historic. I know that sounds crazy in this anti white world we live in but it's progress. Laird had a better day than any Miami RB all year in my honest opinion. Now if we can just get Zenner
    in there with Laird we would have a snowplow offense running and gaining momentum.

    If only the stupid Bears would wake up and play Ryan Nall. They still have a slight chance to make the playoffs. Release the "Wrecking Ball" Ryan Nall and get out of his way! :)

    Matt Ioannidis, not a guy that will be mentioned outside of here, but having a great season and a real freak. Huge man and plays with power and speed. also, nice to see Justin Watson have a solid game.

    Foster Moreau with another receiving TD. Good to see those young TEs getting reps.

    Sam Darnold only threw the ball 4 times o three white receivers out of a total 36 throws. It's very obvious they're scared to death if the passes go to too many white guys.

    The wheels are coming off NE, as the offense is listless and the so-called vaunted defense is being shredded by KC.

    Why didn’t Brady retire last year on top? It’s hard to watch him losing to one quotaback after another with a mediocre team all around him (and certainly he has slowed down a bit at 42). But if he had some decent offensive weapons to throw to, things would be different. I miss the snow plow offensive line days led by alpha dogs like Logan Mankins.

    Well, Patriots dismantled a great corps of receivers (along with Gronk retiring) leaving Brady with Edelman as his sole reliable target.

    I have only seen one CAR game this year, so I can’t tell why McCaffrey’s great early start and record pace has slowed down with a series of subpar performances, against some crap teams nonetheless.

    Is it a combination of just getting worn out, bad play calling, team falling behind and altering the game plan? 2000+ yards from scrimmage is nothing to sneeze at, but we were all hoping he would lead the league in rushing and perhaps break Chris Johnson’s total yards record. It appears neither will happen now.

    CF, it's a combination of bad play calling, not utilizing CM the best way by getting him some open space and the O Line has had some injuries. However, I watched one game where they ran CM up the middle on every play. There was nowhere for him to go. He averaged 1.5 yards a carry in that game. Today, he only ran 11 times for 53 yards. That's pretty good for only 11 carries. Carolina got behind early and they only passed to him. He could have had over 100 yard rushing today easily. During most of the fourth quarter the middle was wide open because they, Atlanta, knew the Panthers were going to pass on every play.

    I just watched NE give White a toss sweep for 10 yards Carolina rarely gives McCaffrey a toss sweep.
