BSPN Twitter Feed from Michael Wilbon:



Damn...scared to get too excited about what's developing in Soldier Field...but w Cutler gone I'm not expecting automatic pick6

I guarantee you this would never be tweeted about a black QB...and the chances of it being true would be greater.
Nope, sorry, Michael Wilbon, it wasn't a White QB "pick6", it was black WR incompetence.

This season is certainly off to a wretched start, going back to the Thursday night debacle. Most of the notable performances so far have been by the few White players allowed to play defense. Hopefully the late games will provide more to cheer about.

Watson has an INT (as long as another one that was called back on a bogus penalty) and a fumble. I hope Houston has a long season this year. Bortles was not great by any means but I would like to see him improve over he course of the season.

The Falcons are whiter than the Patriots this year. Happy to see them win, especially against an anti-white Bears squad, by far the least White-friendly in the NFC North.
You may be right but I'm just rooting for Glennon. He's been one of the most unfairly treated quarterbacks since he entered the league. He was by far the best rookie quarterback. Then he's benched for journeyman McCown and then not even given a chance to compete against the rapist for the starting job the following year. It's beyond me why you even draft a qb 1st overall when you have a good young quarterback on your roster. I guess I'm one of those people who never saw the Peyton Manning comparisons to be all that accurate.

Beathard is starting for the 49ers. Is Hoyer hurt?

Anyway, hope Trent Taylor is heavily featured.

EDIT: BSPN's gametracker was incorrect

What about Austin Hooper and his 128 yard game with a touchdown? Lots of sacks by our few guys is really awesome to see as well.

I guess Rodgers trusts Seattle's Sumos more than Janis. He better make up for that terrible throw.

49ers missed a golden opportunity for a touchdown on their opening drive as WR Marquise Goodwin dropped a perfectly thrown deep ball from Brian Hoyer deep down the right sideline. Goodwin and Hoyer had connected many times during camp without issue so miss has to be disappointing there.
These black receivers have terrible hands but who cares because they can run fast in a straight line.

Well today's the big rollout of the McCaffrey era. Hope he does well.
Impossible to do well when you don't touch the ball. One reception about 6 yards. end of first quarter! That's it. If this is how the Panthers are going to use him, it'll be disappointing, but at least he'll stay healthy. BTW, he did field a punt. No return.

My mistake. Stats have him for 1 carry 4 yards and 2 receptions 4 yards. I guess I missed it.

As an example of what Zach Zenner faces, the first comment on the Lion post-game show was a caller that asked if Zenner would be a better option then Abdullah who could not find any holes, the radio host immediately shot him down telling him that Zenner would not have done better and is nothing but a practice squad player. This is a common viewpoint of the media in Detroit as it concerns Zenner, They completely ignore him and any positives and when the "crazy" idea of playing him comes up, they shoot it down viciously.

Kupp with a nice long(ish) catch. Leading the Rams WRers in receiving so far.
