Saw the highlights of the Pats loss. The one non catch by Amendola was catchable towards the end of the game. Almost had it, but the DB got his fingers on it an disrupted the ball. Again, the same scenario, tight game with opponent scoring around 30 points with Brady attempting to win the game on their last drive. Yesterday the odds played out. NE has to do something with the defensive adjustments or look at a practice squad player to make a difference. Man, I hope they go all the way.

I am so sick of ESPN promoting these unintelligable pre-game pep screams delivered by dreadlocked idiots........

Nothing really to root for in tonight's game. A Detroit loss would help Green Bay's playoff changes tremendously, however.

Watching Flacco sling the ball is a thing of beauty. He makes hard throws and fits them into tight windows - total contrast from the black quarterbacks who rely on screen passes and short to intermediate safe routes with open WRs.

Both Detroit and Baltimore are still in the playoff hunt, in large part due to their two white quarterbacks.

Stafford and Flacco are proven winners.

And they have the two strongest arms in the league even though they were not blessed with the magical wrist flick

Staford could be better, too often forces it to Calvin Johnson, even Gruden saw that Durham was wide open deep and he forced it to Johnson for an incomplete. Megatron has two drops so far, right to the hands, 7 targets, 2 catches for 8 yards.

What a shocker! White receiver doesn't get the painfully obvious PI call.

At one point, Gruden blamed the Detriot Lions WR's drops on Stafford's odd arm angles.

Yeah who can catch a ball right in their hands if the throw is from an odd arm angle?

A horrible missed call. Even Chucky Gruden has steam coming out of his ears on that one.

Stafford is the least accurate White quarterback in the league.

Unbelieveable kick in the final 1:00 by Justin Tucker, the Ravens kicker. 61 yards with the game on the line, it just barely made it over the crossbar and inside the right upright. He did all their scoring tonight: they win 18-16, and Tucker made six field goals. And, this helps the Packers playoff chances. What an awesome finish.

Justin Tucker is clutch. Huge win. This, I believe, gives Green Bay control of their playoff destiny.

Yea thats true. He seems to try to throw every pass 90 mph, and alot of times it ends up way off.

What do you guys think of Vontaze Burffict? As far as I can see, he's an average starter, at best, yet, DWFs, and pretty much every media outlet has him listed as a Defensive player of the year candidate. My question is why? He overruns plays, slow to react, does wrap up pretty well, but poor in coverage, and rarely makes impact plays. So why all the love for this dude? I've seen about 5-6 Bengal games this season, and I'm just not impressed.

Adequate, but certainly not a star in any way. Just lucky to be the chocolate of the week, or year in this case. We need a saltine of the week/month/year.

It's because he has a great Afro-centric name, Vontaze (huh?) Burfict, and he has the classic black athletic supremacy look:

th


Yup, with those tarantula legs hanging off of his head and that mudshark-attracting mug, he's got to be the player of the decade and a first-ballot HOF inductee. :icon_rolleyes:

I think he's a good player. He's a player of the year candidate because he's leading the league in combined tackles, and the DWFs think his name sounds cool. I'll give credit where it's due, this isn't a case where we can name four white guys who are doing better. Burfict is having a very good year. Interestingly, he failed to crack 5 seconds in the 40.

He is having a fine year. 150+ tackles is impressive. I think you could name a few whites who are having comparable seasons.

Posluszny has 139 tackles with more interceptions and tackles. Alonso has almost identical stats to Posluszny. Same with Kuechly and Greenway.

AJ Hawk is quietly having a great year and is the most consistently positive factor on the Packers defense. Paul Worrilow is in the midst of a 100+ tackle season and is a rookie.

Before posting his horrendous combine numbers, Burfect was once considered a 1[SUP]st[/SUP] round prospect. His tackle numbers over the past two seasons have been quite impressive for a player than ran a putrid 40-yard dash and never put up big tackle totals whatsoever at Arizona. He went undrafted, won a starting job and has since posted 278 tackles through 30 games. I have respect for that.

In the future, look for Burfect, Worrilow, Kuechly, and Alonso to lead the NFL in tackles each season.

The issue is not whether Burfict is a capable player (obviously, he is), but whether he deserves to be Defensive Player of the Year. In other words, is there no defensive NFL player who is better than Burfict? I think the answer is a pretty strong no. Personally, I think Kuechly deserves it. He can go beyond putting up great stats and be a leader for his team, despite his youth. He is the single biggest reason why the Panthers have 10 wins on the season, though DWFs give all the glory to mediocre black quarterback Cam Newton. Plus, Kuechly is a good guy off the field. I know some people don't care about that, but the NFL turning into the National Felon League makes it difficult to watch. At least some middle-of-the-road, not quite in DWF territory fans are starting to give respect to white defensive stars. Maybe that will lead to more widespread questioning of the Caste system and opposition to the idea that defense in the NFL should be black "turf."

5.04? Wow he has to be slowest player drafted in the first 7 rounds at middle linebacker since 78'. Obviously production trumps a gym workout but if he were White would he be anything more than a practice squad type prospect? Anyway here is a Pro Football Weekly review of Vontez...:tongue:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbYkM9U1SWg Note they have since gone belly up with scathing reviews of Blacks you after wonder if they had the plugs pulled by Madison Avenue....:tongue::thumbdown: Ps I looked it up and the chicken hawk scouts lost out to somebody sane in upper management and he wasn't drafted....:sorry:
