    I give the Bills' serious credit for recognizing the talent of Dawson Knox, a former walk-on at Ole Miss. Even at TE, it's almost miraculous that he's on a team that utilizes his talent and did so immediately.

    As fast as Apke is, Isabella leaves him in quick sand. Both of these players have the most elite athletecism and their speed is off the charts. I too agree with other posters though that Murray vastly underthrew Isabella or
    he would have easily scored a touchdown. His speed is unearthly and Andy makes it look so easy and smooth. So why the heck do the stupid Cardinals hide him on the bench all the time? This is two years in a row in regular
    season games that he makes huge play after huge play. Then they say go back to the bench. Whitey is not wanted here. What a epic waste of elite talent. Makes me so mad just like Nall and countless other rb's & wideouts in the nfl.

    I didn’t watch that game or the Jag game, but a friend from work commented on how slow the white guy in the defensive backfield was for Jax......My theory is there are so few whites playing defense these days, they stick out....Especially if you’re blonde.....Half of the blacks that play db are terrible, but they blend in with each other, so it’s not as noticeable when they play like crap....Drunk fans seeing Apke or Wingard not be perfect get ticked off and want them benched....Or cut....

    I think there is some merit to this comment. But I also think it is fully ingrained into the national psyche. It is a natural reflex now for fans to target white defensive backs. They see one and their first instinct tells them something is wrong. It has turned into a national touchstone to the point where too many fans obviously have a deep rooted belief that whites are inferior athletes, Since the position of defensive back puts a premium on athleticism it only stands to reason that these fans think that there is something against the laws of natural selection when they see a white player at a position that they feel is rightfully designated to the master athletic class, blacks.

    It really is crazy that Isabella produces big plays in great disproportion to his playing time. You would think the head coach, who’s supposed to be one of the top football minds in the country, could figure out that he needs drastically more snaps. But we know what’s really going on.

    Isabella is a young talent in the same vein of Tyreek Hill. The Caste System is making sure that he will never rise to that level of stardom.

    Hendrickson played like an all pro last night. He displayed a very impressive burst and looked dominant. He is in his fourth season and at 25 years old looks like a natural starter and potential star. But they have been playing footsies with him from the start. He played sparingly his first two seasons and only recently entered a "rotational" role. Makes me wonder about Sean Payton. In his entire long regime he has never had a white WR and when he had a field stretching tight end in Colby Fleener he was used as a second thought.

    Then there is the case of Taysom Hill. The media beams about the way Payton "discovered" him and utilizes the Swiss Army Knife. And of course the buzz all offseason was Taysom's role would dramatically expand this season. Well after two games he has seen the football as often as a modern day fullback. 5 carries for 21 yards. 1 catch on one target for 14 yards. And he has thrown one pass for 38 yards. Not exactly a boost in usage.

    I don't get it? The most explosive athlete on the field is barely used. You have a modern day version of Paul Hornung and the best thing they can come up with is a couple of gimmick plays a game? And wasn't he supposed to take about 10 snaps a game at QB to relieve Brees? It is like you are fighting a war and you bring the swords but leave the machine guns in the shed. Wake up idiots! You have a dynamic athlete on the team that will help you win games. Put him in the freaking game!

    And one final thing about the plush grass field. Although he may still end up in a concussion protocol do you think Hunter Renfrow would have returned to the game if he hit his head on a field turf? For sure these new turfs are safer than the concrete carpets they used in the 1970's but a nicely cared for grass field is the best bet for player safety. The 49ers are in touch with the NFL to discuss the field turf situation in Jersey.

    As a former (rugby) player, give me grass field all the way. Unfortunately, turf is so much cheaper that even in rugby (and soccer since those two sports frequently share fields in Europe) you see more and more of it. The only two times I got injured (knee sprain and then ACL tear) was on an artifical surface.

    BTW @Rocky B, good post!

    Been up in the mountains this weekend. I've been reluctantly taking a peek at the going's on in the NFL. Landed on the NFL channel just long enough to see the crawl announcing McCaffrey out for a few weeks. I moved on. Some time later I hit the NFL channel again just in time to see Gruden apologizing for not wearing a mask.

    That was it for me for the day.

    Derek Carr is playing well and adding to his proven track record of talent. A lot of media talking heads were ready to write him off last season, some even going so far as to call for the Raiders to draft another QB to be the face of the franchise, preferably a magical upsider.

    Nowhere (except on Caste Football) are these leftist, anti-white sportswriters called out for their inaccurate reporting and unjustified attacks on White players.
