Not too many white RB's or WR's, maybe they should have teams should get incentives for teams who play them.
Plenty of white WRs. Adam Thielen, Julian Edelman, Cole Beasley, Hunter Renfrow, Danny Amendola, etc.

I'm sure you don't actually care about the reasons for the splits in position.

Outside of Thielen and Edelman that's a very ordinary list and not what I would consider 'plenty'.

I'm not denying that white WR's exist just that there aren't many and most aren't very good, likewise with white RB's.

Still waiting on your list of white RB's or do you concede there aren't many? I'll start you off: McCaffery.

I'm sure you don't actually care about the reasons for the splits in position.
I'm not sure you understand the true ramifications of a ruling like this and you're just intent on virtue signalling.

The proposed method is a terrible idea - incentivising poor hires that you can sack later after you've got a benefit from draft picks is the height of stupidity.

Trying to find ways to break decades of ingrained subconscious bias isn't.

Interested to see how the Cards handle the weight of expectations this year.

Last year coming off a No 1 pick season almost anything would have been an improvement. Zero expectations. Rookie coach, rookie QB.

Bad game last year... well it's to be expected. Things won't happen overnight.

Now they've banked a year, added D Hop. Widely regarded as a likely improver.

Pass mark has gone up.

Being in Phoenix now, I will probably pay attention to them a little bit.

Twas the night before Baltimore, when all through The Land

Browns fans were ready for what Stefanski had planned

The locker room was spread out and handled with care

Cleveland was optimistic, even with COVID in air

Austin Hooper was nestled all snug in his bed

While visions of catches danced in his head

And Priefer running special teams, and Berry managing the cap

Fans shook their heads, knowing last year’s coaching was crap


When out on social media arose such a clatter

It wasn’t Njoku demanding a trade, so it really didn’t matter

Away to the end zone Nick Chubb flew like a flash

Kareem Hunt too, with a juke and a dash

The moon on the breast of brand new regime

Our head coach had cheekbones, a sight to be seen


When what to opposing offenses should appear

But a reinstated Myles Garrett giving the Ravens such fear

With a healthy OBJ so lively and quick

Predictions grew strong as a Wild Card pick

More rapid then dawgs his defense it came

And Woods whistled, and shouted, and called them by name

Now Vernon! Now Richardson! And Ogunjobi too!

And Ward and Harrison and the rest of the crew!


As preseasons games ceased to exist

The 2020 season would come with a twist

So up to Governor DeWine a few thousand fans could come in

A ray of gridiron light in a year that was grim

And then in a twinkling, I yelped with a glee

Mack Wilson wouldn’t need surgery, and could return on the D


As the dawg pound hoped things were turning around

Out into M & T Bank Stadium, Baker came with a bound

He fired up this teammates and they began to go ape

The face of the franchise was finally in shape

He dressed in new unis, from his head to his feet

He lied low in the offseason, hardly a tweet

His eyes how they twinkled as he looked at his line

Greg Robinson was no more, about to serve time

Baker was lean, and worked on his game

The offense was stacked, and there’d be no one to blame

A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head

He gave Chubb the ball, a beast to be fed

Chubb spoke not a word and broke open a run

Watching this offense was overwhelmingly fun

Stefanski was calm and collected, an ivy league brain

Giving hope to a fan base that endured enough pain

And with Conklin and Wills holding pass rushers at bay


Alex Van Pelt drew up a miraculous play

A fullback lined up, along with Bryant and Hooper

The offense had woken from its long-endured stupor

Baker faked a hand-off and it was all play-action

The coaching was real, not an abstraction

Landry took off, running a route like no other

Even OBJ blocked, his LSU brother

Baker looked downfield and fired a pass

Landry caught it with ease and turned on the gas

He ran into the end zone, his feet quick like a deer

Happy opener to all, and to all a good year

I can't believe the NFL give participation award touchdowns. That makes this game even more of a joke lol. That touchdown by Pittsburgh, only a centremetre of the ball crossed the line lol into the end zone. Like wtf is that. That's so soft.

On VOG-L09 using BigFooty.com mobile app
First of all, it is Pittspuke

Second of all, love the rant

:)

I was just pleased to see semi competence from the coaching staff.

The formula is obvious, we must be a run first, second and third option team and mix in the pass after.

It is a shame we have absolutely no defense...could be a good squad otherwise
