    Why the hell does every sports writer, radio talk show guy, and call in fan, think they are freakin experts at judging the quality of drafted players? The local media and everyone else that gets a chance is opining about how good or bad the Detroit Lions draft was. Like they have any f-ing idea!

    It really pisses me off to listen to someone that has no training or experience lecture on about why such and such a pick was disastrous or horrible. In the Detroit area there are going on about what a mistake the Lions made passing up Justin Fields. They all think that Goff is garbage but some unproven college kid is going to be a superstar.

    The Jets had an awful draft. I still can't believe they did not bring in Brady Christensen, Dax Milne or Matt Bushman to provide a comfort level with Wilson. Right now it really feels like Wilson is being setup to fail.

    The still have Chris Hernon on the roster - he has been selected as a breakout candidate at the position since he was drafted and has been anything but a reliable target.

    Fields like every other Ohio St QB was successful in college because of the running game. No matter the gaudy passing stats the offense still relied heavily on the running game. Chicago's offensive line has been a joke for a very long time and their running backs are average at best (despite the media hype around Montgomery and the glorified scatback they have). The Bears WRs are notorious for dropped passes as well. Fields may start out hot but the league will catch up.

    I looked at the scouting reports of LB Ben Niemann. Most of them view him as a two down run plugger who's poor in coverage. Here's one that's more or less the opposite. It sees him as good in coverage, good in run pursuit but not so good as the "traditional" take on run stopping linebacker. This analyst sees him as a low 3rd round or high 4th round value.

    Niemann, by the way, tested out to have high end athleticism. Niemann sounds like a guy that would be a good weak side linebacker in a 4-3.

    I thought the Dolphins had an OK draft although it could have been better. They actually did something smart by passing on all the early round sumos and going with Eichenberg. Hunter Long was also a great pick. I wish they could have taken Harris in the 1st round instead of Phillips as they still don't have an established running game. Patrick Laird never seems to get any touches because the Dolphins don't have a featured back and instead feeds the ball to scrubs like Gaskin and Washington who never seem to pick up any yards. I also wish they could have picked up a developmental white offensive guard in the later rounds and instead went with some no name sumo out of UMass. Definitely could have been better but not nearly as bad as I was expecting.

    That happened right in the same area where Aaron Donald was accused of beating up a black man, and around the same day too. Video appeared to show that Donald was falsely accused, but still there were a bunch of people punching and kicking a guy who was already on the ground. Occurred on Carson Street on Pittsburgh's South Side, a favorite place in the city for college students and young and youngish people to bar hop. It has a reputation for partying and sometimes excessive drinking, but is quickly getting a new reputation now.

    Weaver was charged with punching out a woman.

    In the old days, in white culture, you never hit a woman. That's because men are so much stronger than women, they can really hurt them. Women really can't hurt men unless they have martial arts training.

    Ah so it's becoming a more "diverse" area...

    Are there still any of the ethnic European communities in Pittsburgh? I am guessing with UPMC becoming central to the Pittsburgh economic revival Pittsburgh is now rife with Indians and Asians in the medical field because although Whites invented modern medicine they need not practice it anymore for the sake of diversity.

    Always loved Western PA - how wide open it was, lots of country. Never really got into the city much though.

    Blackest and most anti-white conference leads the way in draft picks

    During the NFL Draft, 65 players were drafted out of the SEC, most-ever from a conference.

    This broke the record of 64 players drafted from the SEC in 2019. Breaking this new record down by degrees, 12-of-32 prospects drafted on Day 1 came out of the conference, including six in the top-10. Beyond the fact that the SEC is simply stocked with athletic talent -- and stocked deep -- one reason for this year's record could tie into the coronavirus pandemic. Not only did some players simply opt out of 2020, depriving scouts of recent tape, the lack of a combine and other showcase opportunities almost certainly hurt small-school prospects who would have benefitted from a stage on which to make their draft cases. Without that, more known talents were likely pushed up the board in places.

    The ethnic neighborhoods are still there but to a far less extent than previously. Pittsburgh being sharply divided by hills, valleys, rivers and creeks was ideal for the formation of ethnic neighborhoods with strict boundaries of mostly steel workers and miners. It's mostly diminishing numbers of the older generations who still go to ethnic clubs and otherwise try to keep the traditions alive. Another generation and the unique neighborhoods and their histories will be all but extinguished if present trends continue.

    And those trends do indeed involve eye-popping amounts of Indians and East Asians pouring into the area over the past decade. Many are very wealthy too as housing plans with nothing but big expensive houses continue to be built at a rapid rate in the northern suburbs and Asians own many of them. Carnegie Mellon, which churns out lots of prestigious STEM graduates, is mostly Indian and Oriental now, and even the University of Pittsburgh has a huge presence. Overall though Pittsburgh and Western PA are still among the best areas to live compared to other major metro areas.

    The Falcons and Browns have both had very coal drafts as well as UDFA signings. In both instances the GMs are black. Food for thought.

    It must be nice to be able to support your own and not be questioned when you only select your own in the draft. If a White GM ever got punchy and selected over 50% White men in the same draft there would no doubt be articles written calling it into question. If a GM selected all White men, the ADL would rally an army of jews, anti white nerds and radical POC to burn down the guy’s house with him in it.

    Washington drafted Dax Milne at 258. What a steal. His last year he had 70 catches, 1188 yards for a 17,0 average.

    The Jets should have taken him with their 7th round pick to pair him up with their new QB Zach Wilson. Milne was Wilson's favorite target at BYU.

    Cheering for Wilson, but let's be realistic the JETS ******* suck. He's likely to be roughed up this season, a lot. I think he's better than Darnold(USC QBs have sucked since Palmer). That's not saying much with that sorry bunch of affletes NYJ have accumulated around him.. He's been set up for failure, was hoping Fields or Lance would Jump him for that 2nd spot. At least Wilson made huge $, should ease the mind some when dealing with ((NY)) media..

    Great value for Milne indeed. Could be said for pretty much everyone of our prospects, I always feel they are ignored. If I were a GM, I'd show these followers how to step outside the box. Short shelf life as a GM, might as well rock the boat a little with some, gasp, 40% Honkey Drafts. :ARMS1:

    This would have made common sense in any world other than the Clown World we live in. If it makes sense the teams don't do it. Just like trying to copy whay the Patriots did. No
    matter how many Super Bowls they won, the other teams got darker. Funny how that works.

    The NY Jets are idiots. They had their qb and could have taken his favorite receiver who he already has a chemistry with. They should have done it.

    It's a crime that guys like Dax Milne are even still available in the 7th round. It really doesn't matter what type of numbers a white football player puts up. The league still doesn't want them. So sad!

    Some Dax Milne highlights. I was looking at another highlights video that was put on YouTube right after he was drafted, but it was full of comments by WFT DWF morons like he might make the practice squad or that he has a chance to be a part-time contributor as a possession receiver. No thanks, not gonna direct hits toward it.

    Respectfully disagree on Darnold. I watched most of his USC games and he was a dynamic QB - honestly my favorite QB to watch behind Luck and Burrow in the past decade. The Jets - the piss poor personnel on the team with him and the awful coaching of Gase really hurt Darnold out of the gate. The Jets offense was awful at all levels - no pass protection, no running game, no TE, bad WR corps. Darnold is a 24 year old in year 4 going to a different system - the same system that Burrow played in during his historic season. Darnold will have CMC as well.

    I actually think Saleh may right the ship and he brought in a good offensive mind as the OC that meshes well with what Wilson does. With that said they should not rush him into the starting position with that roster.

    Milne should of been a 3rd rounder easily. Size/production/speed all check off for him. An obvious victim of the caste system. The comments by DWFs just show how broken their brains are. They are confused when a white dominates the supposed chosen race so they rationalize it the only way they know how - by denigrating him rather than rooting for him because he is a threat to their racially indoctrinated belief system.

    Just looking at some info on Milne and came across this: "With Wilson declaring for the draft, Milne followed in hopes that his one year of outstanding production would shoot him up draft boards."

    That shows right there that Milne is oblivious of the Caste System. To "shoot up draft boards" he would have needed to stay at BYU for his senior year and absolutely tear it up as well as try to run a faster 40 time. Ryan Nall was another naive player who thought he would get drafted when he came out early. I wonder what he's thinking these days. . .

    Even if Milne had another dominant season next year he would still have been treated as an afterthought. I do agree about him being oblivious to the caste system but I don't think the QB that would replace Wilson is going to be the same dominant player and get the ball to Milne enough to duplicate his outstanding 2020 season.

    Not saying it was likely, just that it was the only chance he had to get drafted higher, longshot that it would have been.

    Milne was the next to last pick of the 2021 draft, by Washington. In 2018 Trey Quinn was Mr. Irrelevant, again picked by Washington. In 3 seasons Quinn has 26 total receptions with just 1 last season with Jax. My guess is that solo catch in '20 will be his last in the NFL. Who thinks Milne will top Quinn's 26? I'd love for Dax Milne to be an accomplished NFL receiver, but my prediction is under. Too many hurdles to overcome.

    Well if the trend continues many white football playeys will just give up. The few that slip through the cracks and go on to stardom like Adam Thielen amaze me. What are the odds of a guy becoming a star out of nowhere unless he is of the
    magical race. The NFL has made it clear for many, many decades that whites are not wanted. Just like in society we are looked down on and blamed for everything. Well we know the truth and we will never quit fighting in sports and in society!
