Michael Mayer with 4/67 for the Raiders, the first time he's been made part of the passing game this season.

Hunter Renfrow of course with zero catches so far.

McDickhead put in Hoyer over the promising rookie O'Connell. I was all for supporting Hoyer 10 years ago when he had his shot with the Browns but unfortunately blew out his knee. At this point it's stunting the development of a younger White player.

Rams 3-4 defensive end Jonah Williams is an underrated players. In the first half he has 4 tackles (3 solo and 2 for a loss) and a sack.

The Rams defense, with 3 White UDFA starters, is not bad. Their offense really needs to get going…

It's a small miracle we have 3 White UDFAs starting for a team. Also Van Valkenburg is getting snaps.

VanValkenburg part of a still underrecruited demographic -- the scions of the Dutch immigrants in West Michigan, the largest ethnicity in the world. Many of their Calvinist high schools didn't introduce football teams until the 21st century. VanValkenburg is from Zeeland, Mich. and started his career at Hillsdale, Isaac TeSlaa is from the next Dutch town to the East, Hudsonville Unity Christian, also began at Hillsdale and is now is a receiver at Arkansas.

Interesting. By largest ethnicity in the world do you mean their physical stock?

Yes, physically largest the Dutchmen. Two beneficiaries of the area not being widely recruited are Nos 1 and 2 teams in NCAA Division 2, Grand Valley State (in between GR and Holland) and Ferris State (less than hour North of GR).

Super happy to see Kupp playing incredible football but more important is the fact that he is staying healthy with a heavy work load!

The AZ Cardinals are just about unwatchable along with alot of other teams. It brings me enjoyment seeing them lose again & again.

I'm happy Alec Pierce had 3 catches for 25 yards today. While not a huge game it's a step in the right direction. Hopefully he can get
some confidence back and build on that chemistry with Minshew! The sad part is he was thrown to 6 times and only caught half of
them. Didn't see the game so I'm not sure if what happened. The sad thing is they seem to use him mainly for short pass plays. The guy
should be a deep threat. Anyways I'm hoping next week will be better. It's very important that our young guys at the wide receiver make
it as so few of our guys get the opportunity.

What was done to Andy Isabella and Hunter Renfrow along with others is just criminal.

Really great info! Thanks for sharing and welcome!

Yes, Dutch are great athletes if you look at a cross section of all sports. Definitely would be highly sought after, if not for the caste system.

Wow, the Jets and Zach Wilson upset the Hurt lead Eagles.

With 3rd and 9 to ice the game, Hurt threw his 3rd into of the game deep in Jets territory. Next play they run it in for the go ahead TD. Next possession the Eagles go a quick 4 and out. Game over.

Kupp and Thielen among the leaders in receiving yardage today, brings back memories of when Thielen was a thousand yard receiver. Looks like he'll do it this year easily. It's just a shame there are no up and coming White receivers in the league currently after those two.

Bad no-show by the 49ers but should be a wake up call to them.
Agreed, by all accounts from you guys and reading the play-by-play, a pathetic showing top to bottom.

49ers need to do a bit of soul-searching on how they will get all their playmakers involved. Right now the sum is less than the parts.

I believe the Dutch are (by a minuscule amount) the tallest people in the world.

I would say Scandinavians are the largest though, as the Dutch are rather thin and smaller-bone structured than the Vikings.

Dutch team are the tallest every time for FIFA World Cup, also Netherlands is the biggest exporter of agricultural produce in the world after US.

They weren't tall 150 years ago, but they are smart, most of South Africa rugby NT white guys are from Dutch origin, it's rugby, so you gotta be strong/big frame/fast and well disciplined.
