Austin Davis out "game manages" Russell Wilson today :icon_lol:

See for all the nonsense you keep hearing from Wilson about wanting to become a complete qb, that will never happen as long as he is in a college offense with designed run plays. This is the same criticism sCam was getting. Seems like he listened and is running less these days. Of course, just pointing out this observation makes me enjoy watching them lose.

With Jacksonville's victory, if the Cardinals can hold on to win, the Raiduhs (the least white friendly team in the league, with saltines in single digits on their 53-man roster) will be the only winless team in the NFL.

We could have had Manziel vs. Bortles, but the powers that be kept Hoyer (who, frankly, sucked today) in.

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?

No, young QBs should be given more than few games unless proven completely inept. I was comparing how Cousins is treated compared to Bridgewater. He was benched at halftime of a 10-6 game in which he threw for 140 yards. It's not like he was totally inept.

RGIII's benching was sold to us as a temporary condition because the team had nothing to play for at the end of the season anyway. We all know Shananan preferred Cousins and knew RGIII wasn't the answer. Shananan was fired and RGIII was given the starter spot right back.

I can't account for who the Jets chose as the back-up to Geno. Maybe they should have went out and traded for a viable back-up QB instead of a head case WR.

You're right, Alex Smith did get some losing years. He would have been better used as example of someone who was benched while winning and playing well. Bad example by myself.

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.
you can still win with his style, Tony Romo throws alot of picks at inopportune times, Brett Favre was the ultimate example. The problem with many black quarterbacks is that they get picked off the same amount ,but arent really making risky throws, usually dinking and dunking. Bridgewater got his first td today, it was like a screen pass or something. 1td to 5 picks so far. Kirk doesnt have much experience but somehow its ridiculous to bench Bridgewater this early but not him?

Great catch and run for a TD by the Chiefs' FB Anthony Sherman

I don't think Bridgewater should be benched - yet. If Cassel were healthy Cassel should be starting and was. Ponder has had his chance - I have never been of fan of him frankly. He just doesn't have it and was given time to prove it. Cousins shouldn't be benched either. That was my point.

What is Anthony Sherman's story? I'm ashamed I'm on this site and don't know him.

Love to see more Travis Kelce.

Philip Rivers is having one of the career type years. Deadly accurate.

The ridiculous pink stuff is much less conspicuous on the fields of play today. Is it possible there's finally been a backlash to the breast cancer theatrics?

Though the commercials against domestic violence have been noticeably cranked up of late. There's always some cultural communist/control freak theme going on during NFL games -- hysteria against drunk driving, driving and texting, not wearing seatbelts, domestic violence, etc., all part of the over-riding agenda of total government surveillance and control.

The Vikings are in a difficult situation with Cassel's injury. Ponder's had his shot and failed, so they're kind of stuck with Bridgewater. Of course, part (most) of that situation is of their own making, as they could have had Derek Carr instead, who would have been a better option than Bridgewater.

I agree 100%. Kirk Cousins should not have been benched. It really made me angry. Geno Smith fumbles and throws pics all the time yet he plays week after week. Cousins needs a fair shot.

I think everyone is aware of breast cancer at this point.

QB is the most insanely demanding position in all of sports. You truly have to be a freak of nature to play it successfully in the NFL.

Good call. Tan had a great game. I think he realizes he sometimes needs to take off when nobody is open. It's been the constant theme with dolphin receivers this season.

I read where many people who have or have had breast cancer hate seeing the constant reminders of their disease.

Also, why don't they wear blue to raise awareness about prostate cancer, especially in a game mainly followed by men? Why is breast cancer more important than prostate cancer?

I'm getting pissed off about Jordy Nelson's situation lately. Not for any logical reason, but it's frustrating for him to put up monster numbers in the first half(or quarter!) and then get nothing the rest of the game because the passing game is unneeded. He could have lit it up stat-wise for each of the last two games but after the first part of the game the deep passing game wasn't even really necessary anymore. Still on pace for a great year, but to have that record breaking year you need more huge games, which he could have easily had if the games were somewhat competitive.

This way they get to sell "boobs." It's really the only reason this particular cause has gotten a wildly disproportionate amount of support from every public organization.

The only way SF beats Denver is if Denver's coal defense lets Krappernik run for 100 yards.

Here is a link to Sherman's bio on the Chiefs website. His story is similar to the story of THOUSANDS of white running backs, except that he did whatever it took to continue his career. The vast majority say "to hell with it" and go on to being productive citizens in another line of work. He was a star RB and LB throughout his youth and HS career, went to UConn and chose to "bulk up" to play a caste-approved position. Even at his inflated battering-ram weight, he still has speed and power.

Tonight's game is barely watchable from a caste perspective. Sure it should be a good game, watching blacks play virtually every position. I guess that I'll "pull" for the BlackBroncos only because of Manning and Welker. SF, with Kraepernick and Harbaugh, are hate-worthy.

Didn't see if they were official starters, but niners should have Smith, Skuta and Borland all on defense tonite. Also, Paul Cornick may have integrated the Bronco's O-line, becoming, at least for tonite, the new starter at tackle.
