    Why did they even draft him if they weren't going to play him? Maybe it's a case of a GM drafting a player the head coach really didn't want, so the head coach won't play him.

    Isabella has three years remaining on his contract. If I were another team I'd make an offer for Isabella. I'd offer a deal like a higher draft pick for Isabella and a lower draft pick. For example a second for Isabella and a fourth.

    BB should trade Edelman for overrated OJ Howard........leaving Brate and Gronk to run some two TE sets in Tampa

    Not only does Arizona have Isabella locked away in a racial apprenticeship, they also selected Zach Allen. Apparently no plan to develop him either.

    If Isabella gets screwed again this year his NFL future will be dim as he'll be considered a bust and too small to succeed. It would take an outlier franchise to develop him at that point, but the Patriots don't appear to be that outlier anymore. Maybe the Vikings, or possibly another organization will surprise with a GM and head coach that aren't as wedded to the narrative as most others, the Giants and Raiders being examples of teams that have changed direction recently within the very narrow boundaries of the unwritten rules of the Caste System. Maybe the 49ers will want him and develop him, the way Belichick liked to steal players from within New England's division.

    There was a decent draft analyst named Nolan Nawrocki. He criticized both Cam Newton and Geno Smith. As a result of this he was falsely accused of racism and run out of the
    profession. Blacks and white liberals believe that any criticism of blacks can only be caused by racism because they believe blacks are gods of some sort and should be treated as such.

    Anyway, Nawrocki was absolutely right about both players. Remember how Newton refused to try to recover a loose ball in the Super Bowl? It doesn't matter though, he's still gone.

    I just looked up Narwocki - he works for the raiders now. Go figure.

    I'm sure the powers to be will run games this year since this charade is nothing but politics anymore, so when they do the LV Raiders might be the team to watch, the others all seem to have bitten the rotten apple of woke politics.

    Haha, gotta give Gruden some credit. Within the parameters of the Caste System, he’s put together some “fair” talent evaluators. It’s already proven fruitful with the whitening roster composition.

    I didn't know that. Last I heard he was out of the business. It shows the Raiders under Mayock and Gruden are a smart organization. Maybe that's why they've signed some white players.

    Not sure if you guys reported this yet.....
    I saw Taysom Hill got a new contract.
    2 years. 16 million guaranteed....
    But the Saints are also looking at bringing in Jameis. ??

    The Saints under Sean Payton somehow end up frustrating in one way or another. The Taysom Hill deal was expected but he was also penciled in as the "designated" successor to Brees. Now most in the media are reporting they will sign Winston. Does that shove Hill to the back of the QB line again? After all this wonderful talk about Hill in the offseason this is his reward?

    And where does that leave QB Tommy Stevens who they just drafted? No team carries four QBs so either they keep him on the roster as a ST/gadget player or ship him out to their farm?

    Does St. Covid-19 think of himself as the quotaback whisperer? Doing his best to get black QBs back into the league - Payton is a cuck regardless of the Taysom Hill situation.

    lmao. We all deserve credit for the clever nicknames this site has come up with over the years!


    Agreed signing CrabLegs just crowds an already full QB room.

    St. Covid-19, that's a good one. And true. All the privileged celebrities and multimillionaires who have caught the virus are milking their 15-minute elevated status for all it's worth. Makes it difficult to sympathize with them even if they really did get very sick (and not all of them did).

    Sad day as James Develin retires from football today due to his neck injury. At least the Patriots have Vitale at full back signed in the off season but Develin will be a hard man to replace.

    Justin Rohrwasser the Pat's fifth- round pick has come under heavy criticism for a tattoo on his leg. Rohrwasser a kicker has a tattoo that represents a right-wing militia group, the Three Percenters. He said he got the tattoo in high school thinking it showed support for the military, for which he has many family members in. He said he would have them covered.

    Looks like Tanner Muse has been drinking the Caste kool-aid a little too much:

    The Las Vegas Raiders decided to keep the pipeline from Clemson football hot as they drafted two more former Tigers in the 2020 NFL Draft. The team waited until the third round to select their first Clemson alumni and they chose linebacker Tanner Muse. He played safety in college, but the Raiders plan on using him as a linebacker. However, he plans to make his biggest impact on special teams.

    “I see myself being a full core special teamer, just a special teams war daddy,” Muse said after getting drafted. “Getting to linebacker and sub packages, just being able to do everything I can, but mainly linebacker and special teamer.”

    Saying things like “special teams war daddy” will quickly make Muse a fan favorite in Las Vegas. It appears to be a bit of a reach to take a specialist that early in the draft, but the Raiders clearly like him. Targeting Clemson talent worked out well for the team last season.

    Special Teams War Daddy, oh God Muse. 3rd round pick already designated to Special Teams... I guess his 40 time didn't matter, powers at be had him slotted as a LB no matter what.

    What kind of mentality is that? I'd want to be a defensive starter immediately. Not stuck on special teams duty

    I know he's just excited to play in the NFL ATM but his ambitions should be a lot higher than some special teams ace.

    It's almost like Muse is requesting a long racial apprenticeship. But he was picked by maybe the best team that could have selected him, as the Raiders started Maxx Crosby as a rookie last year and Hunter Renfrow was also a regular on the field by the end of the season. If he has the talent -- and aspirations to utilize it to the fullest and not be some team special teams mascot -- hopefully he'll be a starter by next season at the latest, whether at LB or safety or ideally as a heat-seeking hybrid.
