    Sam Darnold playing well despite not having a running game to support him.

    Hendrickson with the bull rush for the sack.

    I guess Zach Zenner couldn't average 2.3 yards per carry. Too white. (sarcasm)

    Hendrickson setting the tone for the Saints defense. Mahomes overthrows a WR who gets laid out, Mahomes runs down the field trying to get a flag called.

    Jets win. Looks like Jacksonville is the new favorite for Lawrence now.

    Suppose Jax is a better landing spot. More laid back, not as much fake news.

    Jared Cook is absolute garbage. Imagine if Brees had a tight end like Kelce. Kelce not only is as fast as a wideout but also great awareness. Cook has made so many mistakes in this game it's ridiculous that he's considered a good tight end

    Also many Saints fans noticed the preferential treatment Mahomes gets and tons of holding never called

    Saints win if Taysom Hill was QB. KC was forced to punt 8 times and Mahomes had a big fumble deep in his territory. Brees had 3 tds but 1 was a screen pass and another a shovel as he threw an int and only completed 44% of his passes. If Taysom had those stats the media would have him tarred and feathered and run out of town. The media has done a number on Taysom. I doubt we will ever see taysom be QB again as the coach is likely to cuck to the media next year and even this year should Brees get hurt again. The media lies that he doesn't have an NFL arm and is inaccurate is completely ridiculous as he has one of the highest yards per attempt averages and the absolute highest completion percentage in the NFL in 2020. How these lies go unchallenged with simple stats available to everyone is beyond me.

    Andy Dalton had another solid game. Proven to be a good vetaran backup

    Brees just wasn't ready to come back this week, and his coach and GM must know it. The scary thing is that the Saints management appeared to bow to pressure from the league's controllers to keep Hill out so that the fans don't see a true dual-threat White QB. There's no way the team makes that foolish and self-destructive of a decision entirely on their own initiative.

    I'm not too angry at the team managers because there were probably a lot of threats involved. It's the league's overlords who are the true evil.

    The Saints were putting Brees back into the lineup as they still have a shot at the number one seed.

    DWFs see at least two dual threat White QBs every week in Josh Allen and Aaron Rodgers. Could be more, but if Whitey is too good at running, yes there are repercussions.

    If the Saints were "under pressure," Winston would have started for them instead of Hill. Hill showed a lot the past few weeks, and congrats to Sean Payton for starting him instead of Winston. He started the QB that gave his team the best chance to win. But Hill is 30 years old, he's already been screwed over enough to be any more than what the Saints allowed him to be.

    The Saints should have let Taysom QB one more game and let him run it 20 times like Lamar and Jalen Hurts. He would easily eclipse 100 yards and win the game. It is not a sustainable strategy, but you already knew Brees would be coming back...

    Well here's to Brees staying healthy going forward and I believe Hill has shown enough of what he can do.

    The difference is that while guys like Allen and Rodgers are athletic men who are capable of running, the plays their teams use rarely call for them to run. Looking at this week's games, Allen carried the ball 3 times, Rodgers 4. Compare that with Lamar Jackson (10 carries) and Jalen Hurts (11 carries). The athletic White QB will be accepted if and only if he plays like a traditional pocket passer. Taysom Hill is not going to limit himself to 3 or 4 carries per game. That's why he's such a threat to the powers that be.

    Brees may have been a compromise between the team and the league overlords. Hill would have given them the best chance to win, Winston would have been the darling of the anti-whites, but between the guy the overlords want to keep out (Hill) and the guy who gives the team the least chance of winning (Winston), Brees was the best compromise.

    This is no bigunrealitis. The idea that games are fixed (which would require all the players, coaches, and refs to be in on it) is clearly ridiculous. The idea that NFL owners (about half of whom are Jews and all of whom are on board with the BLM agenda) would conspire to keep the athletic White man down is very realistic and believable.

    All I know is that Drew Brees is one of the five best quarterbacks ever, and if my team was trying to position for the first seed in my conference, I would do everything possible to get Brees ready for the playoff run.

    I don't want to sound like a a-hole but giving Sean Payton credit for starting Taysom for 4 games is a little cucked IMO. Payton should have started him last year when Brees went down instead of Bridgewater. Winston, with his 28-45 career record leading the league in fumbles one year in only 13 games and interceptions with 30 last year shouldn't be a thought. Payton has never come out and declared Hill the heir apparent and seems to be running away from that in his most recent interviews by implying that Winston could be the starter next year. Brees was admittedly not fully recovered and hadn't had a full week of practice yet Payton started a rusty not fully recovered Brees instead of doing what coaches should do and tell him to take an extra week. The result was they lost a game where the opposing team punted 8 times and lost a fumble once deep in their own territory. Brees had three tds, a screen pass, a shovel pass, and a good ten yard pass. He was 15-34 with an int and couple more balls that should have been intercepted. It was a bad coaching decision to start Brees in that kind of shape. Based on Payton's words in his most recent interviews, if Brees should go down again I fully expect Winston to be declared the starting QB. In fact, Covid may have gotten in the way of him playing this game after Bree's awful start.

    As for Josh Allen and Aaron Rodgers getting credit and being mobile dual threat athletic qbs, they don't compare to Taysom Hill. Josh Allen has been the media's whipping boy for 2 years and still gets criticism and has media detractors (Nick Wright) despite what I think should be an MVP season. He has superior athleticism and can be a dual threat anytime he wants. As for Aaron Rodgers, he has nifty feet but his athleticism is no where close to Allen's and way far away from Hill's. It's not comparable. Aaron is not looked at as a dual threat QB in any way.

    As for Hill being 30, who cares if you're 30 and still run a 4.4? Age is only a concern if it affects your physical skills. Is the big fear that he may slow down in a few years to a 4.6? And it's not as if 30 is ancient number for a QB to be starting - Steve Young didn't start for the 49ers until after 30 and same goes for Kurt Warner - neither of whom were the athletic specimen that Hill is.

    I'd like to be a Bree's fan but he's wearing "say her name" shirts. Unless this is being forced on him, which it may be, then I find myself not quite rooting for him so hard.

    Just like I thought, the NYPost is full of the Jets shouldn't have won that game baloney I thought would happen.

    Kaptain I don't know about Young not being comparable athletically to Hill. I remember back in the day that the announcers who were much less cucked then they are now used to play up Young's 4.5 speed.

    Anyway for the younger set a little bit of trivia, amongst us older Packer's fans one of the most sought after items were VHS tapes of the "Snow Bowl." It was probably 1985 when Young was a failing QB for a truly Jets level awful franchise in Tampa traveled to GB in December and it snowed relentlessly the whole game. We Packers fans loved it and since the Packers were barely better than the Tampa Bay Jets it was just a fun game of seeing the players from Tampa struggle especially Young and the shivering black dudes by the one heater on the sidelines. When Young was on TV or if he still is he would occasionally get razzed about that game from his fellow talking heads. If the NFL Network would do us one favor in the years ahead and before Covid 2029 gets all us Boomers they could replay that game in its entirety and maybe some commentary from the participants.
