    Hey I am all for Watson getting traded to the Dolphins to watch him get sacked and beat up on a weekly basis!

    No they can't release one of the overhyped/underperforming Smith brothers!!! ;) They should cut Rashan Gary while they are at it.

    Haha probably stuck with Gary for a while, but Preston may be on the way out.

    That’s another team I hadn’t thought of. Probably the best situation. Good call.

    If that happened, it would probably be the thing to tip the scales to force me to stop following this team (I'd probably start following Jacksonville with Trevor) However, I still would visit Finheaven to laugh at all the DWF's who somehow think Watson, the magical negro is the man that is going to lead them to the promised land. If they trade all their draft capital for Watson, it would virtually ensure them that they wouldn't get better and they'll be stuck with their overrated sumo line. Watson will be Daunte Culpepper all over again. I remember when that trade happened, I said it this would end up being a disaster and virtually none of the DWF's believed me. Meanwhile Drew Brees (who they could have had) went on to have a hall of fame career where as Culpepper played all of 4 games for Miami.

    What the heck is going on with Michael Deiter? He was great at Wisconsin, they spent a mid-round pick on him yet he's just riding the bench most of the time while inferior sumos play. Also what's the deal with Jesse Davis? Seems like they're trying to phase him out (though injuries to sumos allow him to sneak back into the lineup); also he's a better tackle than guard, despite him moving between the two. I don't follow that team too much but the defense has some promising pieces, and good TE on offense (Gesicki, Shaheen, Smythe).

    Dieter played well during the limited snaps he got when sumo Solomon Kindley got injured. The DWF's pretty much wrote him off as a bust after underwhelming rookie year. During the offseason, he entered a strength and conditioning program. It seemed to pay dividends as he looked good in limited action. Unfortunately the Dolphins brass decided that sumos Kindley, Hunt, and Flowers had more "upside" I'm hoping one of the sumo guards get injured next year with Dieter coming in, never giving the job back. Preferably Flowers since we all know he sucks and the only reason he's starting is because of that big contract they gave him.

    As for Jesse Davis. I think they see him as an insurance policy in case one of these bloated sumos go down with an injury (which we all know they will) he can play both tackle and guard and I think they value him in that sense. Unfortunately he doesn't have the "upside" as the other tackles Hunt and Jackson. We all know the reason why.

    Speaking of Ereck Flowers, I still can't believe how many chances he kept getting, and then that contract. Somehow he was given time to start sucking less, and then given time to settle in at guard. Dat upside. Honestly I can see Andrew Thomas totally going down that path and still get every chance and then get overpaid.

    As for Deiter's offseason training, good for him. Typically schools like Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa, etc. produce really good White OL, though some need more development in their early NFL years. Billy Price did that as well last offseason, I'm following and rooting for him because I think he can still become a good player. I don't follow the Bengals, but when Burrow went down I wanted to see what their fans thought about that O-line. Of course, they are concerned, but they unsurprisingly have different ideas on what kind of linemen will improve the team. They actually think Trey Hopkins is an above average center. The truth is, he's not as bad as the other sumos they have (which really means nothing since some of those are TERRIBLE). Classic example of fans overrating their own guys. Hopkins tore his ACL in the last game, and his rehab will likely extend well into next season. Hopefully Price pulls a Garett Boles and puts it all together in year 4, and runs away with and keeps the starting C job.

    Sumos centers, IMO, are the WORST, and I actually dislike them more than quotabacks. Should be our position, just feel like the snapping, protection calling, etc. is best done by our guys. And for Burrow's sake he needs a real O-line to keep him from getting killed. The Bengals DWF do agree with that, but unfortunately you know they have different ideas than we do, which will not work. Mega-bust Michael Jordan (2nd year out of Ohio State) got pushed into Burrow's leg on the gruesome, season-ending play, and he ran into Jonah Williams' leg the next week, ending his season too. He got benched, and he deserves to be cut and discarded from the league. Even the DWFs hate him. From my brief visit lurking their community looks like they also believed in UDFA Steelers cast-off Fred Johnson (sumo) as a future franchise RT in the 19-20 offseason LOL. Dat upside again.

    "Woke" boomer Peter King adding to the hit parade on Carson Wentz:

    Peter King reports many in the Eagles organization believed Carson Wentz "couldn't handle hard coaching" and was coddled in his final years in Philadelphia.
    King said Wentz's persistent clashing with former offensive coordinator Mike Groh, followed by the team firing Groh, created widespread perception that the quarterback was unable to take constructive criticism. Wentz's relationship with Philadelphia coaches -- including former head coach Doug Pederson -- steadily eroded after Frank Reich left for Indianapolis and ex-QBs coach John DeFilippo parted ways with the Eagles, according to King. Wentz reportedly didn't connect with many teammates in Philadelphia and could be "stubborn" with offensive coaches devising game plans. The team drafting Jalen Hurts in the 2020 NFL Draft "completely blindsided" Wentz, per King, further damaging his relationship with coaches team officials. It would seem Reich, Wentz's new head coach in Indianapolis, has more to handle than just improving Wentz's mechanics and decision making.


    King also has some bizarre fascination with the totally mediocre Jacoby Brissett:

    I think I’d love to see free-agent quarterback Jacoby Brissett sign with the Eagles. Great spot for Brissett, who still wants to play, probably won’t have a solid starting opportunity in this market, but would be an excellent backup if Jalen Hurts struggles in Philadelphia. Good signing too, even if the Eagles pick a rookie in the first round. Brissett could just move on after one season.


    King is a certifiable hack. He has totally swung for the leftist fence with his faux-outrage and boomer mentality on all of the "racial injustice". Never once does he recognize the blatant anti-white bias going on the in league or society as a whole.

    Honestly forgot about that ******* King. Smear campaign on White QBs and White Men is open season this year .

    I saw some dbag saying how the Broncos had to dumb down playbook for Lock. Funny they can accuse him of that but God forbid you mention that about a Quotaback..

    I honestly feel Brissett is a serviceable back up but Hurts starting is a joke, he makes the Baltimore qb look like an elite passer, it will be the Navy playbook this season in Philly unless they find gold in the free agent market.

    Woke Boomer is a great description of King. So much so, I think we should only refer to him as such.

    In an industry full of loathsome blowhards, the Woke Boomer still stands out as more obnoxious than most.

    Bucs are rumored to be putting OJ Howard on the trade block. He tore his Achilles in Week 4, and without him, he wasn't missed. Honestly I was puzzled when they picked up his fifth year option. He was okay but not spectacular in his first 3 years, and, even without the injury, I think he would have been buried on the depth chart. Even if Gronkowski wasn't in the picture, Brate was always a better and more complete tight end.
    But they said that "this type" of TE was the future of the position.

    Lol ((Greenberg)) really has a hard on for Dwayne Haskins. Again he's absolutely giddy that old goy Big Ben is aging and in his mind Haskins has already surpassed Rudolph.. He can't accept Haskins just doesn't have it and is a BUST!

    At least Orlovsky challenged how much Haskins wants to be in the NFL lol.

    Smart move by them. They seem stacked with Brate and Gronk. Could easily draft a TE late as a development project for depth.

    How the mighty of fallen. Newton gets heckled by a high school scrub qb.

    I remember years ago when former heavyweight champion Michael Dokes was on the comeback trail and a boxing magazine poked fun of the fact that a midget heckled him from ringside, this was the equivalent of that...

    Anyone else getting sick and tired of reading about these ungrateful, spoiled-rotten black quarterbacks who all-of-a-sudden are demanding they be allowed to make personnel decisions??

    Watson being the most obvious, but now Russell Wilson is saying he wants personnel input...

    The inmates are truly running the prison...

    I've been sick of black QBs since I was a teenager in the late 90s/early 2000s! This type of entitlement is given to black athletes and black quarterbacks really put it all under the microscope. Another angle with these black QBs is they want to get away from franchises that invested a ton of money in them with the understanding they were supposedly elite QBs who could carry a team to a super bowl win.

    These black QBs are never the reason teams lose and always the reason they win. The reality is both Watson and Wilson realize they are not as good as the media makes them seem so they are trying to force their ways out of their talent deprived teams. The Texans have no defense, running game or WRs to make Watson look good and Wilson is a high end game manager without a strong running game and stout defense.

    Humphries has been released. It may be the end of the road for him due to his concussion history. His career reminds a little of WR Austin Collie who was on his way to becoming a reliable WR option before he was sculled several times and suffered numerous concussions.

    It starts young when their cuck Head Coaches(let alone parents lol) do NOT discipline their affletes as Children. I think discipline falls under the broad, ever expanding term of "White Supremacism" .

    When I was in 8th grade we had a hot headed Afflete that was the star of our Middle School Team. He was good, would consistently score 20 a game. **** attitude though, I witnessed him walk out of practice 2 or 3 times only to still start the next game. He topped out at 5'6 , never grew an inch after that. Quit Football team freshman year because he was 3rd string RB but starting returner(mind you this is like 2 weeks into practice lol). Anyways now he's a rapper and Gangster Disciple.

    Damn, crazy how things go sometimes. He rises from an UDFA, cut a couple times, per usual as a White Athlete. Finally establishes himself only to have to go out like this...

    Watson isn't elite if he was the Texans would have won more games than they did. Does he skate on his team blowing a 3 touchdown lead on the Chiefs in 2019?

    As for Wilson he is slowing down and he probably realizes he might not be "elite" much longer, he looked slower last season and without his running back type speed can the Seattle offense have any chance of being potent. This is probably why they are trying to be power running team.
