    Great game today by Decker (9 catches, 207 yards, TD) to close out a tough season playing with arguably the NFL's worst QB.

    The only white pass-catcher to eclipse 200 receiving yards in a single game this season was Jordy Nelson (who had 209 yards against the Jets) back in Week #2.

    Houston's chances to advance to the playoffs are still alive, but the Browns-Ravens game is a real dogfight. Ravens are now up by 3.

    It's nice that Marc Mariani was picked up by the Bears, but it's ridiculous that they utilize him only as a kick returner. They have virtually nothing at receiver after Marshall and Jeffery yet still don't give Mariani some snaps. What possibly prohibits someone with nice size, good hands, great speed and moves from also catching the ball? Is he too dumb to run routes? Not likely, hmm must be something else.

    Same with kick returners Thielen and Walters, who only rarely are used as receivers.

    JJ Watt with his 3rd sack, this time for a safety!

    He becomes the only player in NFL history to achieve multiple 20+ sack seasons.

    Unfortunately, it seems as if the Ravens are about to put the Browns away, dashing Houston's playoff hopes.

    Fleener with 5 catches for 56 yards and two touchdowns, great player fast becoming one of my favourite players. One from each quarterback Luck and Hasselback. Showing he is the clear number 1 over multi drop Dwane Allen who dropped three last week or the week before.

    Decker now with 10 catches for 221 yards and a TD, the highest total for a white pass-catcher this season. He now has 962 yards on the season. Perhaps he has one more 40+ yard reception in him today?

    Watt has "revolutionized" the defensive end position. We can be sure that college recruiters and NFL scouts will now go all in looking for more "new breed" J. J. Watt types to develop, right?

    So I guess one great game by Smiff, gives him another year to show dat upside? Of course.

    Yeah exactly. Tebow and Manziel were both huge superstars in college, and that's why the media dedicated a lot of time to turning them into circus freaks.

    You're right the media is that powerful, and maybe it does have an effect on even someone like me. I know about the media created image of him, it's that he this ****y, "over-privileged", spoiled, rule breaking, White, frat boy. And I don't care about that. The media doesn't show him as being a wigger. The funny part is that if the above image of him were true then there's no way he would be a wigger, very few of them exist in southern frat houses.

    Brian Billick and Co. gabbing away during highlights and Billick says that Bridgewater has had a "pretty good" last five games, his black co-gabber cuts in and says Bridgewater has been "fantastic," taking it upon himself to correct even caste man Billick's white privileged built in unconscious bias just in time.

    There's always work to be done in the fight against white privilege.

    then why do you assume he is a wigger?

    either way the media hasn't presented a very likable character. "he overslept for the manning academy" Stuff like that reminds me of Halloween party Hillis missed, or all the other jabs they took at him to get everyone to turn against him after his great season. It worked very well. People think you are insane if you defend Hillis now. Except the campaign against Manziel started while he was still in college as the Manning Academy story is old and one of many.

    He's a wigger in the traditional sense of the word. He's friends with rappers like Drake, he has a Drake tattoo, he hangs out with black professional athletes like LeBron James, he hangs out with his black teammates, he imitates the gestures that rappers make,etc

    edit: I just saw the rest of your post. There's no disagreement from me, the media's 2 year long character assassination campaign of him is the sole reason why everyone hates Manziel.

    At this point it would be a crime if Watt did not win the MVP award. It's bad enough he lost the sack title to an afleet.

    Jets win one for their soul brother Rex Ryan, then dump a bucket of Gatorade on him. That silly ritual never goes away, but like everything else that's supposedly "cool" in this fake, corrupted society, it's now been demeaned to the point of buffoonery.

    As Westside said, this one amazing game by Geno Smiff would be sufficient enough to give him another shot at the job for Jet's starting qb next season by dwf standards. Hopefully the Jets hire a coach who runs him out of town.

    I don't think you could call it "losing the sack title." Only the most hopeless DWF's would call a 20.5 sack season by a 3-4 DE as inferior to a 22 sack season by an OLB.

    You're right though, it's a crime if he doesn't win.

    Smith finished the game with 3td 0 int 358 yards and a perfect passer rating. And it doesn't matter that he's been awful for 2 years, this game alone is probably enough to let him be the starter for another year. It's not like the Jets will have a choice. The media is going to spend the next 8 months talking about this one game and how much potential Geno Smith showed. They'll be forced to keep him.

    Didn't know about that tattoo that is pretty lame. Although Drake is criticized for being too "white" with tons of White friends and being an actor on some Canadian sitcom. Not sure why anyone would get another man's name on them.

    I think it's unlikely that Manziel will get cut after one season. The anti-white media is always claiming that white players are on the verge of losing their jobs. It's a tactic to degrade white players and to try to make it come true.

    Colt McCoy was a third round pick in 2010. The media kept saying he was going to be cut during preseason. Instead he's carved out a nice career for himself.

    They talked about Landry Jones being cut his first year after being a fourth round draft choice.

    This year they talked about Ryan Nassib being cut in NY even before the preseason. Nassib played well in the preseason.

    Lurkers take note. The mainstream sports media has an agenda to eliminate all white quarterbacks from football. If you pay attention you'll see the agenda in action.

    The announcers for the game acted like he was going to win it...after the 20th sack, as if 19 sacks and the rest of his insane numbers weren't good enough.

    It’s good to know that, unlike New England in the AFC, Green Bay has everything to play for today. If they win against Detroit, they’ll at least secure a first round bye. If the Packers win and Seattle loses to the Cardinals, the Packers will have the #1 seed.

    Traditionally, Jordy Nelson has struggled mightily against Detroit since entering the league in 2008. I believe that he’s only ever had one 100-yard game against the Lions in his career, which occurred in 2011. I’m hoping for a monster game from our best offensive player at Lambeau today.

    It is an incredible feat by a 3-4 end to get back to back 20+ sack seasons when he is constantly facing double teams and is the sole focus on the defense, but dwf's and the media don't concern themselves with variables unless it concerns an afleet.

    Nelson had a TD if not for a hold by an afleet he beat easily, thankfully they called the PI.

    The only good news so far from the Carolina and Atlanta game is that Olsen has over 1,000 yards receiving for the season.
