    I saw that too. I was actually sad to hear it as he was as white friendly as you can get in this day and age. He was a pretty good GM - he drafted Rodgers, Jordy, AJ Hawk, Clay Matthews, a slew of talented white OL, Blake Martinez, Kyler Fackrell, Dean Lowry, Jake Ryan, Jared Abbrederis, Jeff Janis, Matt Flynn. Not to mention the free agent signing of John Kuhn.

    Wow, anti-White and incompetent. With all these NFC East team’s shooting themselves in the foot, it bodes well for the Giants if they continue to bring in more White talent.

    Antonio Brown ruled out for NFC Championship game. Hopefully means a larger role for Scotty Miller. Maybe get a repeat of Chris Hogan’s 180 yard game in the AFC Championship game in 2017. He’s certainly capable.

    Reports now that Deshaun Watson's preferred trade destination is the Jets. Good place to see him crash and burn. New York would be giving up all their draft capital to get him, stink it up, then they'll realize Darnold wasn't the problem there.

    With everything that gets stirred up whenever the "white quarterbacks' political views" issue comes up on this site, I think we owe it to praise white athletes when they speak out and say the right thing. Rodgers taking a dig at Newsom - good for Rodgers.

    I've never been a Matt Stafford fan while also admiring his toughness, but that may be because he's been stuck with a terrible franchise his entire career. He definitely has the talent to lead a team deep into the playoffs so hopefully he'll get that chance now:

    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero said the Lions and Matthew Stafford have agreed to part ways this offseason.
    It appears the team won't fight to keep Stafford aboard for a full rebuild. Pelissero reports Stafford and the team made a mutual decision that the Lions would trade away their franchise QB this offseason after 12 seasons. QB-needy teams like the 49ers, Washington, Panthers, Colts, Jets, and Broncos will probably show interest in acquiring Stafford, though the Lions' price isn't known. Stafford has two years and $43 million left on his contract, "a bargain price for a quarterback who is still playing at a high level," Pelissero said. Stafford will be a marked upgrade for the pass catchers on whichever team he lands on this offseason. Detroit is (very) likely to use their No. 7 NFL draft pick to select Stafford's successor, and perhaps move up even further to secure one of the draft's top signal callers. The trade would likely happen before the fifth day of the 2021 league year in March, when Stafford is due a $10 million roster bonus.

    Should be interesting to see where he ends up and also what the Lions do. If the Colts don't land Wentz in a trade I would think Stafford would be the next logical option. I wouldn't be surprised if the Lions end up drafting one of the quotabacks to be honest.

    Interesting Wentz and Stafford should be available. Jimmy G as well. Who's shown flashes but can't shake the injury bug.

    Yep never been either, thought he was a 4th quarter stat padder against the usual prevent D because the Lions are losers. But yeah I would love to see him do well with a good team.

    Big Deshaun fan here just hoping he brings his wonderful Blackitude to the Jets, that would be great. Darnold will at least get the usual backup QB job offer.

    Yep, the print media and radio people are really pushing for the Jets to get Watson. I hope the new coach and their GM are smart enough to resist the pressure from the media and their jewish ownership.

    Watson can lead a Jets team to a losing record. The Jets roster is horrible much like the Texans. Who knows what the Jets will do - they might be blowing smoke with the Darnold talk, they might blow a bunch of first round picks and hurt their future by trading for Watson, they will probably make bad free agent signings and squander draft picks anyways like they do every year.

    I get so sick of BESPN’s The Undefeated and their constant pushing for more black coaches and GM’s... and the articles always state the league is 70% black players so why not coaches too? And never once does anyone ever question why is 70% of the league black when the 30% white that are in the league are all better than average (for the most part) - why is it that only black players can be average NFL players and whites must be upper-level only?

    I honestly believe the majority of people in this country are idiots who lack critical thinking skills and it angers me fiercely.

    I’ve used this analogy before, but it’s true as hell.....

    An average white kid gets dinged like Joe Mixon or someone like that coming out of college...You drop a round or two if you have baggage and are black.....The white baggage is the whiteness......Rex Burkhead, for example would easily have gone in rounds 3-4, but went in the 6th (I believe) instead.....Randy Moss dropped from the top of the first round to the bottom...due to weed or dumb crap....TJ Watt, Luke Kuechly dropped due to whiteness.......Whites have to be Watt good, McCaffrey good, Bosa good....Guys like Maxx Crosby should’ve been drafted higher....We could name dozens off the top of our heads that have been slighted.... If any GM paid attention like we do and weren’t afraid of the backlash, they’d trade all of their number one picks that weren’t slam dunks and trade out of the first round for multiple picks......Get the Walter Paytons and the Ed Reed players that kick ass but compliment them with white players you can get in the mid rounds...
    Instead of a reach in the first round you can get two or three picks later (white players that are considered reaches by the “experts”).......Hey NFL GMs, go take Cody Thompson and Ryan Nall....They’re there for the taking.......

    I hear you - I am the same way. I saw that career race baiter Rhoden's article about the lack of black coaches and pushing the NFL to become more like the NBA. I didn't bother reading the whole thing but I am sure he never questioned the logic around the fact that Christian McCaffery is the only white athlete with the ability to be an every down running back, guys like Wes Welker and Jordy Nelson who dominated the league were one in a million types of talents etc. It's hard to apply logical thought to the caste system because it is based upon indoctrination/brainwashing and not questioning the lies that hold the whole thing in place. It just goes to show that diversity is a power grab and has nothing to do with equality. Blacks believe that sports belong to them.

    What you said, as I call the 1st round the "Hype Zone" where the narrative crafters spin their evil magic.

    The admittedly Black and Jewish writer clears Carter of all racism charges. He's just being honest. LOL. Well shoot if just being honest is what we're calling it these days. I have a few things to say, but I'm neither Black nor Jewish and my daddy wasn't a ball player. Such is life.
