Nice to hear the announcers giving Clay Matthews credit for everything he does for the Green Bay defense.

Colt McCoy in for Kirk Cousins. Does anyone know what happened to Cousins?

He threw a INT and fumbled. It doesn't look good for Cousins being a franchise QB. McCoy, however, 1st throw=TD to Garcon.

How ironic that a mediocre performance from a middle-of-the-road White quarterback is comparable (maybe even superior) to the average performance of numerous starting Black quarterbacks who are given chance after chance and are anointed "elite" despite having proved they just don't have the stuff.

Ie, Geno Smith, Teddy Bridgewater, etc.

As far as comparing Black quarterbacks to the REAL quarterbacks (those White QBs who actually ARE elite), there is just no comparison. It's insulting to people's intelligence even to try.

There aren't any Black quarterbacks who are actually elite, in my opinion. At least right now. There are a few who are pretty good, but that's about it.

Kuechly ejected for no good reason. John Lynch rightly defends him. Lynch is one of the only commentators I have some respect for.

Amazing TD catch for the odious Seahawks by cracka TE Cooper Helfet. He was an all-conference receiver in HS, then an outstanding TE at Duke, was even up for the Mackey award. Of course, in the Negro Football League, he was UDFA and has been bounced on and off of the Seattle roster for two years running. Meanwhile, there are at least 15 black starting TE's in the league who are inferior to him.

Werner with another sack. Fleener with a decent outing. Chris Hogan the second leading receiver for the Bills. Austin Davis trying to add to the Rams' lead against Plantation Pete.

Austin Davis touchdown to put the Rams up by 8, 9 if the extra point is good. I don't know if he's St. Louis' QB of the future but he's kept them competitive in every game.

Rams fake a punt and get a 1st down on a 4th and 3.

Rams punter has a better arm than Wilson.

Unbelievable catch by Hogan for the Bills. 5 ticks left for the bills inside the 5 yard line down by 6.

Denard Robinson with 20/111/1, not good news for Gerhart.

At least the Blackhawks lost, even though the Rams almost blew that one at the end.

One thing I hate about these GB blowouts is that they definitely impact Jordy's statline.

Well that's another travesty. Cousins has had a horrible defense and receivers who refuse to finish routes and yet he has put up tons of yards albeit with plenty of interceptions. But what else happens when you have to dig yourself out of a hole every week? This would have been the game to give Cousins a complete game with a balanced offense as Tennessee's offense is Putrid without Jake Locker. Instead he gets benched for a guy they know is no threat to RGIII. With Cousin's yardage numbers a couple of wins could have propelled the qb controversy once again.

Teddy Bridgewater loses another game with a horrible performance. 5 interceptions in the last two weeks and only 156 yards this week. 4 games and Brigewater still has not thrown a TD! That has got be some kind of record. Cousins looks like Peyton Manning in comparison. Will Teddy get benched? No way. He could do this the rest of the year and remain the starter for next year - ie Geno Smith.

And Jordy Nelson starts out on fire and then - nothing. Nobody gets rest like a league leading white player. Would Calvin Johnson get put on the shelf or would the coaching staff try to break records? I would prefer if the Packers just completely pulled Nelson out of a game like this and have him in jeans and t-shirt on the sidelines instead of be on the field to block for Randall Cobb. Maybe they did this - I don't know. Didn't see the game but Jordy was clearly put into hibernation mode after the first half.

Cousins could have won the game just like McCoy did. They just don't want a qb controversy. McCoy has been a back qb for quite a long time now so no matter what he does, they will start RGIII soon. Cousins is better than both quarterbacks. It's not even close. At least Washington got the win and it was without Griffin.

Happy to see the Jags and Dolphins win. Both good winds. Bortles struggled but got the win. He is really mobile. The guy can flat out run. Very athletic. Toby Gerhart better get healthy soon or he will ride the bench for the rest of the season. Even now, I think he will be lucky to share the running back position. Robinson has taken over. It sucks but Gerhart has to produce when he is in there. I hope he is finally back to full health so he can show his talent soon before it's too late.

Andrew Luck is already on the level of Brady, Manning and Rogers with his ability to flat our dominate a game. So smart and he is so athletic. He could easily run for 50 + yards every week if he wanted to. No need to get hurt as he throws for 300 yards every week. Amazing!

I swear the Rams defense is horrible. They let turds like Krapernick and Wilson torch them back to back weeks. Following the twitter feed you would think the seattle dwfs were having orgy's watching Wilson run for over 100 yds and throw for over 300 yds against a horrible defense. Unfortunately for them, the Rams pulled out a trick or two to secure the win.

Tough break for Cousins. It didn't matter that he was a TO machine. They just couldn't win games with him as the starter and that is what seem to really matter in the league.

I wish winning is what mattered. But, RGIII won 3 games and lost 10 last year. Geno Smith has done almost nothing but lose and Teddy Bridgewater is losing in fantastic fashion. Tebow won and it didn't matter. So did Alex Smith in San Francisco before he was benched. I could go on. But winning is definitely not what this league cares about most.

I watched a replay of the play that got Kuechly ejected.

Why was the referee grabbing Kuechly from behind?

Griffin was benched for the last part of last season, Geno Smith has another black as backup who may yet replace him this season, and Alex Smith started for several years while he was struggling and his team wasn't winning. You're not really suggesting that Bridgewater should be benched already are you?
