    I know. It's crazy. Such blatant bigotry.

    Minshew, Dalton, or Foles would all be far better choices than sCam. It appears that on Chompin' Pete's Plantation, the QB position is just like running back - black only.

    Foles isn't on a team somewhere? Wow, THAT is sad...

    He may have won a Super Bowl but he still has the white skin disease.

    Be a shame if old Scam would finish off the Seahags season.

    The Seahawks signed QB Jacob Eason off waivers yesterday. He was released by the Colts Tuesday.

    Kudos to Seattle for lightening up a bit with that Eason signing. They politely "entertained" Scam but in the end declined. Good news.

    Foles is still on the Bears, as a third string quarterback.

    All right, another backup White LB on the Seahawks. Plantation Master Pete starts 22 Blacks, while most of the small number of Whites on the roster are WSTD, which is where I expect Muse will go for now. Guess it's better than nothing but Tanner deserves much more.

    I've never been a Scam hater, actually thought he was a first rounder, but he never turned out to earn that status, as Whitlock noted extremely poor fundamentals which ironically allowed Greg Olsen to boost his career stats after being posted to "Eligible Receiver Career Death Station" Chicago.

    Tanner Muse has been added to the Seahawks' 53 man roster yesterday due to injuries.

    Muse should be playing safety.

    Muse might get snaps as a hybrid Lb safety Seahawks are being obliterated by DB injuries

    Great post, Buck! Ever heard of Ken Geddes? Don't feel bad, neither had I, until recently.....Looked it up, Geddes was the first black starting linebacker (1976-78) in Seattle Seahawks history.

    My point? I think Seattle would start 74 year old Ken Geddes before they start a white linebacker. At least, while white-male hating defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. is around. Okay, perhaps a 74 year is too old, but I bet Norton Jr. would bring back 35 year old "superbust" Aaron Curry (4th overall 2009 Draft/left NFL in 2012) before he'd allow an entrenched white starter on defense.

    Back in the mid-1990's I was listening to sports talk radio. Someone asked the host what he thought about the "major rift/feud" between Norton Jr. and Ken Norton Sr. because Uncle Tom Jr. preferred "white women". The jewish host started to stutter and refused to answer...simply stammering something like: uhhh,da, uhhh.... it's not my business...what, what, what goes on in other families".

    Norton Sr., a Boxing Legend, would not even talk to Jr. or return his messages for years. A jewish writer from the L.A. Times ran a major story over the feud, but refused to give the reason for the rift -- Junior's penchant for race mixing didn't sit well with the family?

    So what? I honestly believe Junior was publicly humiliated by his own family -- two sisters might've even refused to talk to him? I'm thinking he's so scarred by the Uncle Tom label, that he's been taken it out on white players he's coached for years. Norton Jr. will never allow a fulltime white defender while he's in control. Perhaps, and this is a long shot, if Seattle drafted a white top 5 overall (i.e a Bosa brother type), Norton Jr. might relent?

    So, Cody Barton, who possesses first round athletic ability (check Combine numbers), is screwed over and relegated to special teams coverage, because Norton Jr. wants to shed his well earned Uncle Tom label? As far as Ben Burr-Kirven, does anybody really think Norton Jr. would allow a white, 5th round pick to start at linebacker? LOL, I have a bridge to sell you!


    P.S: We've been referring to Pete Carroll as Plantation Pete for years at CF, but it wasn't always like that. When he was HC of the Patriots between 1997 to 1999, he usually started 3 to 4 whites on his defense full time. Chris Sullivan (overachieving 4th rounder from B.C.) started at DE for a couple years. DT Chad Eaton went from a long-haired, tattooed backup with Bill Parcells at the helm to a border-line All-Pro (short hair, tattoos brushed off) with Pete....He also started 4 white linebackers for at least 1 full season, including Ted Johnson and Andy Katzenmoyer. I remember Pete excitedly telling ESPN (TV) how Katzenmoyer was his personal pick. Andy, a first round pick, looked like a rising star, until he was forced to retire due to a neck injury.

    How about at USC? Did Pete not have several all-white starting LB crews? Brian Cushing, Clay Matthews III and Dallas Sarz (sp?) being most notable? They also had a blonde strong safety Pete loved and raved about. He started 2 years with the crew above, but did not get an NFL sniff after running a 4.8 at the Combine.
