    I think everyone is overlooking White is Right’s “room-brightening smile.” That’s the true meaning behind his handle. That alone should get him in the Hall.

    O line news: Bills T Trey Adams retires after one year (on the practice squad). :( I guess injuries really caught up to him, what a shame. Was a potential top 10 pick before everything fell apart. Hope he had a good plan B in place, and hope he lives the rest of his life as pain-free as possible. Sad reality that affects many great talents. Would love to see them draft Spencer Brown from UNI. Word is the Ravens love him :mad: do not want him on that vile squad.
    Bills also signed Forrest Lamp. Should compete for LG. They already have Ike Boettger who did great there so questionable move to me. Would have preferred he go to the Vikings (mutual interest), Bengals (still need help) or Falcons (need a LG to complete a snowplow) better than a quotaback team. Feliciano (half Sicilian, half Puerto Rican; I support him as I view him as faaaar more of the former) back at RG (presumably). Could also be insurance in case Mitch Morse is hurt (long concussion history, could be his last year playing). Anyhow I think it hurts sumo bust Cody Ford’s playing chances so that’s good.

    Take this for what it's worth. I think Gase was a terrible HC option and the Jets set up Darnold for failure from the get go both with the coaching and personnel they surrounded Darnold with. I'll be the first to admit I defended Gase during his Miami tenure but after seeing him really hurt Darnold's development as a QB he's a bad coach. I watched probably 75% of Darnold's USC games and feel that the issues with the Jets were not of his doing. It's a tough pill to swallow that he is now under Matt Rhule but at least he is paired with McCaffery.

    Ex-Jets C Ryan Kalil believes new Panthers QB Sam Darnold did not have enough freedom playing under ex-Jets coach Adam Gase.
    Kalil, who is now retired, was one of Darnold's centers in 2019. “It was a system that didn’t allow a lot of individual freedom. It was very, ‘You do it this way and that’s it,’” Kalil said. “A lot of the scheme was pre-determined (plays) based on what they thought they were seeing from the sideline. It didn’t give Sam a lot of room to grow, in my opinion, to make decisions on the fly. ... It wasn’t a system that allowed him to evolve and make decisions on his own. ... And I think that’s why ultimately the Jets made some (coaching) changes, too.” It's a charitable reading of Darnold's struggles in New York, as Gase was not the coach for Darnold's rough rookie year in 2018. Darnold showed modest improvement under Gase in 2019 before going off the rails in 2020. Something that is not up for debate is that Panthers OC Joe Brady will be by far the best coach to ever call plays for Darnold. The quarterback's supporting cast is also better than any he had in the Big Apple. 2021 is now or never for the former No. 3 overall pick.

    With Darnold, McCaffrey and Dan Arnold I'm not going to write off the Panthers just yet. A fair amount of folks here rooted for Carolina when they had McCaffrey, Olsen and Kuechly and almost nothing else.

    As of now they also have two White starters projected on the o-line and Morgan Fox should play a lot on the defensive front. They also have Mike Panasiuk out of Michigan State as a backup defensive tackle. If they have a decent draft they could be middle of the pack demographically this season. But in any event I'll be rooting hard for Darnold, who has the talent to be a very solid starting QB in the NFL if given decent coaching and surrounding talent. Hopefully he's the next White QB "reclamation project" who will "shock the world," the world of DWFs and hive mind media drones that is.

    Julian is and was an All Time Money Player. He and the NE brought me so many great memories against the abhorrent caste system. Thanks Julian!!!

    Mitch Trubisky played better than Sam Darnold yet there was little interest in him. Darnold gets traded for draft picks.

    I'm not putting down trading draft picks for Darnold. I just think the NFL is drastically undervaluing Trubisky.

    The mainstream media did a hatchet job on Trubisky. They destroyed his value in the eyes of the NFL.

    They look at it like, “how dare they draft him before Watson”.

    Trubisky got screwed by his 5th year option, he had to earn apx. 25 million this year and the Bears deemed him not worth that money. There is no scout that would view the Dalton we saw last season as better than Trubisky.

    That’s exactly what they’re saying. DuhShaun is their golden boy, he’s supposed to be the face of this new wave of quotabacks. Of course the media pulls out all their stops to make sure he’s golden and one of the faces of the league. Trubisky can still develop, but he’s been treated far worse than Darnold. Meanwhile they’re also trying to keep Jameis INT-ston afloat and he’s clearly not it.

    Re: Edelman- with his retirement much of the caste busting Pats dynasty is gone. Amendola, however, hasn’t officially retired, and all reports say he intends to play in 2021. Would like to see him re-sign with the Lions. Interest is mutual, apparently, and Goff could really use him.

    The Browns signed him to a 3 year 36 million dollar deal in 2019...unreal. I wouldn't call Richardson a bust but he was certainly overdrafted considering he was the 13th pick of the 2013 draft.

    Browns released DT Sheldon Richardson.

    It was an easy decision following the addition of Jadeveon Clowney since Richardson was due $12 million this year. Although Malik Jackson and Andrew Billings are still available as depth, it's not out the question Cleveland bolsters its d-line further through the draft, and perhaps as early as the No. 26 overall pick. Richardson should land elsewhere as a rotational run-stuffer following draft weekend

    Virtue signaling, boomer cuck, defender of the caste system Peter King pontificating about Carson Wentz. He views Hurts as some sort of long term viable QB solution too...gotta get as many black QBs to replace the white ones right Peter? Just like you and your ilk did for every other position.

    https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2021/04/16/carson-wentz-peter-king-mind-boggled/

    “I probably blame Carson Wentz more for the Carson Wentz thing than I blame the Eagles,” King said on the Eagle Eye podcast with Reuben Frank and Dave Zangaro. “I do blame Carson Wentz more….Carson Wentz saw that his team had taken a quarterback with the 53rd pick in the draft, and I think I’m probably the only person in the media who loved the pick, because in my opinion, if you can’t be sure that Carson Wentz is going to play the full year, you don’t want to have to rely on Nate Sudfeld to play six or eight games for you to get you into the playoffs. You want a good backup quarterback who can play and win games for you.”

    “I’m honestly mind-boggled by the reaction of Carson Wentz,” “This is the big-boy league. You’ve got to understand that the best part of ability is availability, and if you’re not there or might not be there, that team has to buy insurance for if you’re not there. I believe – and one of the reasons why I thought Jalen Hurts was a good pick – that the backup quarterback is one of the most important people on your team. Because you better be sure that if your starting quarterback gets hurt, your season isn’t over.”

    I agree....Harbaugh went new school hipster and tried to be woke..
    Just like at Michigan, head scratching decision making....
    Smith ended up with respect league wide and a basket full of cash.....

    Harbaugh was always down with the Caste System. When he was at Stanford he was dealing with a different program, primarily because it's much more difficult for "student-athletes" to be admitted, including football players and he had a lot of good football players to work with there. Harbaugh was a hyperactive clown when he was with the 49ers after he left Stanford, seeming almost insane at times, so I'm not surprised by what he's done at Michigan.

    "Like"

    I'll be the first to admit I thought that Harbaugh was going to buck the system after his success at Stanford but as Don stated he quickly discarded the model for success once he made the jump to the NFL and now at Michigan. Any respect or hope that I had for him to be "white friendly" went out the door along time ago.

    Congrats to Alex Smith on a steady, solid career especially after the bumpy start under caste clown Mike Nolan in San Fran (followed by the Mike Singletary debacle).

    Yes, Stanford the military institutes and other high academic schools have to recruit an old fashion student athlete and coaches know that so Stanford was going to have a different racial composition than Thug U or Bama or other football factories.

    We have seen Duke basketball go off the reservation and start recruiting 1 and done guys in basketball, coaches it seems just want to win. You will find a few that know they have no realistic shot at winning that won't go the mercenary route but that's about it.

    As for Smith he had an excellent career that if he stuck to one team could easily be a ring of honor career, there is no shame and not making the hall of fame and doing what he did and making the comeback he did.

    Yes he would have. Harbaugh was praised for starting Kaepernick over Harbaugh, In fact it was a dumb move.

    Kaepernick choked in the Super Bowl. If Harbaugh had started Smith the 49ers would likely have won.

    The sub title is of course BS, group think is the only think found acceptable, those found outside of group think are ostracized. America is about the most feminized society outside of mythical Lesbos and conformity to the herd or else is the rule of the day.

    FTR I agree with King on the backup QB and FTR my idea of an acceptable backup would probably be a one read, done, run if the man had wheels which at the time might have included that scum Kapernick.

    I'm reading an article called "Is Adam Thielen Entering His Last Season With the Vikings?" and the article agrees with the consensus I've been seeing repeatedly this offseason that because Thielen is 30 going on 31 he's about to fall off a cliff in terms of production, as many Black receivers do at that age. Then I skim to the comments; there's only six, but this is how one idiot -- who doesn't even know how to spell his name -- "defends" Thielen:

    "Theilen [sic] is the kind of reciever .. let’s just be honest, he’s white... he doesn’t use athleticism to get open, he uses his route tree and solid hands.... So his athleticism isn’t going to disappear and make him a second rate player, he should be pretty good for a few more years but, I could also see the Vikings straight up swapping him for Orlando Brown JR this off-season, drafting trey smith and Rashod Bateman... who wouldn’t take that return for trading Theilen [sic]?"

    Blatant racism and stupidity is fine as long as it only goes in one direction. God, White people have been so dumbed down. https://thevikingage.com/2021/04/20/adam-thielen-last-season-minnesota-vikings/

    Some of these feeble White people (dwf's; journalist ; so called experts) that dis players like Thielen were the ones that got picked on in HS PE class. Typically sat out on the side ; while the real athletes participated ; their own insecurities come out now as adults and make them feel better about themselves when they hate on Whitey. They think No way Whitey can be athletic if we were not.

    Never mind that Adam runs as fast in the 40 as Terrell Owens (and faster than Antonio Brown and Larry Fitzgerald, and countless others) or that his shuttle times are superior...

    Idiot, racists cucks...

    Jason La Canfora, who is one of the biggest anti-white cuckold journalists at CBS Sports, writes this flattering article about Citadel's Raleigh Webb out of nowhere for the website's front page:

    2021 NFL Draft: This Citadel football and track star doesn't need the NFL in 2021 but teams sure could use him


    This is pleasant fluff and a significant endorsement on the part of the author. However, it begs a couple of questions right off the bat. First, if Raleigh Webb has always been "too fast to play safety," why did the coaching staff convert him into a full-time blocker for their option offense? And more importantly, if Webb's athletic profile resembles Christian McCaffrey, why is he projected as an undrafted training camp body, with few NFL teams bothering to contact him?

    Thanks for sharing. If he was too fast for safety why not move him to CB? Or were his hips not “oily enough”? Perhaps he can get lucky like Dan Chisena. I’ll be keeping an eye out for him.

    The lazy eyed LaCanfora is one of the biggest cuck journalists out there. He could of taken the opportunity to address the elephant in the room regarding Webb but as usual ignores it completely.
