The last white player to lead the NFL in yards receiving was future Congressman Steve Largent back in 1985 and 1979. But this year Cooper Kupp of the Los Angeles Rams has a league-leading 1625 yards (along with 122 receptions and 14 touchdown catches) through 14 games. With the expansion of the schedule to 17 games this year, he has a decent chance of being the first receiver with 2000 yards in a season. Having averaged 116 yards per game so far, he’d need to average 125 YPG in the last three games.

But who knows whether they’ll manage to play out all 17 games?

    The NFL could make the regular season more interesting if it took the 8 worst teams off the schedule in the last 3 weeks and had them play each other in a tournament to qualify for the top spot in the draft. Then it could fill in their spots in the schedule with extra games against division rivals with wining records.

  4. But this year Cooper Kupp of the Los Angeles Rams has a league-leading 1625 yards (along with 122 receptions and 14 touchdown catches) through 14 games.

    So way way wait. Hold it. Doesn’t this show that white people can effectively play WR in the NFL? He doesn’t look one drop, or like he’s trying to pass. Not bi-racial in the Russell Wilson or Mahomes milieu.

    If Kupp finishes leading the NFL in yards per receiving and/or sets the record with 2,000 yrds in a single season, wouldn’t this prove once and for all that whites can indeed play WR at an effective level?

    Goodness. First a white RB like Christian Mccaffrey, and now a white WR? In the same season and not as bench players?

    Is this a sign of the Apocalypse?

    Cooper Kupp is the best white wide receiver since Jordy Nelson of the Green Bay Packers who had his best season in 2014 with 98 receptions for 1519 yards and 13 TDs. Then he tore his ACL in the pre-season and missed the entire 2015 season and was never the same again. Being a 4th stringer his first 3 seasons and injuries prevented him from amassing statistics that would have gotten him elected to the Hall of Fame.

    If Cooper Kupp stays healthy and has 4 or 5 season comparable to this season and the previous 2 seasons, he'll not only be a Hall of Famer but arguably the best white wide receiver of all time.

    , @BeyondFedUp
    @Yojimbo/Zatoichi

    Even if Kupp doesn't hit the 2,000 yard mark he's more than proved himself among the best. Talented White receivers like Kupp usually have to serve a sort of racial apprenticeship before getting the kind of playing time and the amount of targets he gets. I'm happy for him for succeeding in such a caste system like the NFL. Read more about this caste system at castefootballDOTus .

  5. Steve Largent is a great American.

    He was member of the famous class of 94 in congress. He was dismayed that the Republican leadership consistently betrayed their voters and participated in an effort to oust Newt Gingrich as speaker and put up a strong, but unsuccessful, effort to run against Dick Armey as majority leader. He was then blackballed by the GOP leadership and left congress to run for governor of Oklahoma. The republican party establishment ran a former republican governor as an independent against Largent in the general election as an independent, handing the office to the democrats, but more importantly keeping out a principled populist who could have built a national profile.

  6. Good for him, but I have ZERO interest in the Negro Felon League.

  7. I’m beginning to hate the NFL but am watching bc I have huge bet in Rams to win SB at 10-1. Kupp is also a damn genius and McVay consults regularly with him on the sidelines. Its also funny to watch black worshipping cucks on Twitter try to downplay what he’s doing.

    The boosters are not enough. Pfizer CEO says fourth Covid vaccine doses will be needed sooner than expected due to omicron.

    Israel and the UK are already injecting citizens with the forth dose because the boosters efficacy falls quickly after 3 months. German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach said on Wednesday that a fourth vaccination will be necessary in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic due to the more contagious Omicron variant. To maintain your fully vaccinated status will soon require a fourth dose. Harvard and the NFL have both mandated the boosters. So they will soon mandate a fourth injection and continue to mandate masks because the vaccines are non-sterilizing and do not prevent the spread of coronavirus.

    A cornerback only needs speed to stay with his man. A reciever needs to follow a planned route and make quick decions about where to go as holes in the defense open and close on the field. A receiver can also be slightly slower since he doesn't have to guard anyone, simply get open and catch the ball.

  22. I read a little bit about him. It did not take long to find a few comments that his post-game interview explaining how he got open for the key pass – – what cues he was looking at in the defense – – was the most detailed explanation that the commenter had ever heard a receiver give. In fairness, perhaps black receivers are equally adept at spotting those cues, but are not verbal enough to articulate these in the interview.

    In other words they don't spear opponents with their helmets.

  24. 100% they will play all the games, and they will play them on time as scheduled. They are already changing their ridiculous testing protocol because someone obviously saw that none of these guys were actually sick, so why are they sitting out and why are we moving heaven and earth to reschedule games and harm the quality of our product?

    Unfortunately the new policy still takes “vaccination” seriously and the changes will temporarily exacerbate the public perception of “epidemic of the unvaccinated” as those will be the only players sitting out, but eventually the league and the players union will realize that most of the positive unvaccinated players aren’t actually sick, either.

    And eventually that attitude will expand into broader society where the “pandemic” was nothing but the result of testing a bunch of healthy people and pretending it was a crisis when they were positive.

    The NBA’s panic back in March 2020 led us into this mess, the NFL’s pragmatism is going to lead us out of it.

    In the category of news I unsuccessfully failed to avoid, apparently the NFLPA is now opposed to all testing irrespective of vaccination status. That that's not league policy is telling.

    Yep. That's probably it right there. Speed is important to getting open. But hand-eye coordination (and big hands) are the key to catching it when you are open. Those traits are presumably about equally distributed by race. Also, now that I think about it, height seems to be more important for catching than defending and receivers clearly tend to be significantly taller than DBs on average. So the relative value of height and hands probably accounts for why some white guys can make it as receivers.

    Now, if you also you throw in strength and bulk -- i.e., the tight end position -- the white percentage rises to about 55%, the highest percentage of any position other than QB. That's kind of interesting. https://imgur.com/XuozZqP

    100% they will play all the games, and they will play them on time as scheduled. They are already changing their ridiculous testing protocol because someone obviously saw that none of these guys were actually sick, so why are they sitting out and why are we moving heaven and earth to reschedule games and harm the quality of our product?

    Unfortunately the new policy still takes "vaccination" seriously and the changes will temporarily exacerbate the public perception of "epidemic of the unvaccinated" as those will be the only players sitting out, but eventually the league and the players union will realize that most of the positive unvaccinated players aren't actually sick, either.

    And eventually that attitude will expand into broader society where the "pandemic" was nothing but the result of testing a bunch of healthy people and pretending it was a crisis when they were positive.

    The NBA's panic back in March 2020 led us into this mess, the NFL's pragmatism is going to lead us out of it.

    I think it has been 18 years since Sehorn started, not 30 ( 2003 ). He may be only starter in the last 30 years, not sure. I read an article about him in 1999, implication was he was the first in a while.

    Scott Case was a pro-bowler as a white CB for the Falcons in the late 80's. His last season as a dedicated CB was either 1990 or '91, they moved him to duty as a hybrid Safety/CB and his career was just about finished by then. So yes, Sehorn was basically the only white starter at the position since circa 1990. 1990 is also notable for having an unusually black draft in the early rounds, an obvious sign that the league was beginning to favor blacks.

    Mike Ditkas Bears teams may also have used a white player or two at CB in the early 90's, though I'm not positive about how long that sustained.

    Sehorn was freakishly athletic, that's why the Giants kept him around for as long as they did in spite of how many injuries kept him out of action.

    Even without steroids, players since the late 80's all came of age working out like crazy, and Linemen have to eat a lot to keep their weight up, like Sumo wrestlers. Heavy use of PEDs peaked in the 80's and early 90's*, nowadays the Linemen resort to eating a lot due to drug testing, while linebackers are smaller these days than they were in the 80's/early 90's (the position requires agility so these guys can't just eat a lot to gain mass).

    I don't think a lot of bodies can hold up to the rigors of both heavy workouts and playing football (and for some players, overeating).

    *Some of this is generational, people born in the 50's and 60's grew up in a "drug culture" where you drank to party, smoked pot to relax, did coke or speed for energy, and did roids for fitness, and (eventually) did opiates for pain management. This blog has been talking about Sudden Boomer Death for years, Boomers are dying in middle age at much higher numbers than previous generations (these were generations who came of age with the vice control aka self-control that the culture demanded before circa 1968).

    So way way wait. Hold it. Doesn't this show that white people can effectively play WR in the NFL? He doesn't look one drop, or like he's trying to pass. Not bi-racial in the Russell Wilson or Mahomes milieu.

    If Kupp finishes leading the NFL in yards per receiving and/or sets the record with 2,000 yrds in a single season, wouldn't this prove once and for all that whites can indeed play WR at an effective level?

    Goodness. First a white RB like Christian Mccaffrey, and now a white WR? In the same season and not as bench players?

    Cooper Kupp is the best white wide receiver since Jordy Nelson of the Green Bay Packers who had his best season in 2014 with 98 receptions for 1519 yards and 13 TDs. Then he tore his ACL in the pre-season and missed the entire 2015 season and was never the same again. Being a 4th stringer his first 3 seasons and injuries prevented him from amassing statistics that would have gotten him elected to the Hall of Fame.

    If Cooper Kupp stays healthy and has 4 or 5 season comparable to this season and the previous 2 seasons, he’ll not only be a Hall of Famer but arguably the best white wide receiver of all time.

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar felt the same way about Wilt Chamberlain that you feel about Jim Brown. That is, Kareem thought Wilt just had the advantage of being big and tall at a time when basketball players were somewhat smaller. But there was a lot of personal animosity between them.

    When Chamberlain was with the Lakers and Kareem with Milwaukee, they only played each other twice a year. One year the Lakers were on an insanely long win streak on their way to an NBA title, and had their annual game at the Bucks. The Lakers played well, but Kareem had a huge chip on his shoulder.

    The purpose of this intervention study was to prove that increasing flexibility of the hamstring musculotendinous unit would decrease the number of lower extremity overuse injuries that occur in military infantry basic trainees. Two different companies going through basic training at the same time were used. Hamstring flexibility was checked at the beginning and at the end of the 13-week infantry basic training course. The control company (N 148) proceeded through normal basic training. The intervention company (N 150) followed the same program but added three hamstring stretching sessions to their already scheduled fitness program. All subsequent lower extremity overuse injuries were recorded through the troop medical clinic. Hamstring flexibility increased significantly in the intervention group compared with the control group. The number of injuries was also significantly lower in the intervention group. Forty-three injuries occurred in the control group for an incidence rate of 29.1%, compared with 25 injuries in the intervention group for an incidence rate of 16.7%. Thus, in this study, the number of lower extremity overuse injuries was significantly lower in infantry basic trainees with increased hamstring flexibility

    Back in the 1990s a friend of mine took a train ride. His seat mate turned out to be one of the Packers from the Lombardi era.

    Ex-Packer said, back in the early 1990s, that steroids had already ruined the game. He claimed the biggest problem was torn ligaments for exactly the reason you stated. Ligament the same size, muscle double the size, collision with a 300 pound monster…

    Look at the size of players.

    The average weight of the “four horsemen” of Notre Dame was about 150 pounds. Jim Thorpe was a monster in his day. His official playing weight was 203 pounds. By the 1960s 250 pound linemen were not unheard of. These days 300 pound linemen are average, and 350+ pound linemen are not uncommon.

    So just being hit by one of these juggernauts could do a lot of damage.

    Replies: @Mike Tre, @Feryl

    Even without steroids, players since the late 80’s all came of age working out like crazy, and Linemen have to eat a lot to keep their weight up, like Sumo wrestlers. Heavy use of PEDs peaked in the 80’s and early 90’s*, nowadays the Linemen resort to eating a lot due to drug testing, while linebackers are smaller these days than they were in the 80’s/early 90’s (the position requires agility so these guys can’t just eat a lot to gain mass).

    I don’t think a lot of bodies can hold up to the rigors of both heavy workouts and playing football (and for some players, overeating).

    *Some of this is generational, people born in the 50’s and 60’s grew up in a “drug culture” where you drank to party, smoked pot to relax, did coke or speed for energy, and did roids for fitness, and (eventually) did opiates for pain management. This blog has been talking about Sudden Boomer Death for years, Boomers are dying in middle age at much higher numbers than previous generations (these were generations who came of age with the vice control aka self-control that the culture demanded before circa 1968).

    I think it has been 18 years since Sehorn started, not 30 ( 2003 ). He may be only starter in the last 30 years, not sure. I read an article about him in 1999, implication was he was the first in a while.

    Scott Case was a pro-bowler as a white CB for the Falcons in the late 80’s.

So yes, Sehorn was basically the only white starter at the position since circa 1990. 1990 is also notable for having an unusually black draft in the early rounds, an obvious sign that the league was beginning to favor blacks.

    Mike Ditkas Bears teams may also have used a white player or two at CB in the early 90’s, though I’m not positive about how long that sustained.

    People don't realize that famous linebacker Dick Butkus was not only a two way starter at the University of Illinois, but was an All American at.. center. He was 240 pounds. His athleticism was actually freakish for that era, but gets no credit because of of the massive amount of lower body injuries he sustained from constantly getting cut and chop blocked that slowed him considerably not long into his pro career.

    Another thing people never consider is that Jim Brown, who many consider the greatest RB of all time, was 6'2", 230 pounds in 1957 and was bigger than 75% of the defenders he faced. The accolades he receives are of course never ceasing, but in reality he was like a man playing among boys. I wouldn't even have him in my top 10 RB's of all time, maybe not even top 20.

    When Chamberlain was with the Lakers and Kareem with Milwaukee, they only played each other twice a year. One year the Lakers were on an insanely long win streak on their way to an NBA title, and had their annual game at the Bucks. The Lakers played well, but Kareem had a huge chip on his shoulder.

    A Wilt anecdote: I belonged to a gym in the Valley called Mid Valley Athletic Club. Wilt was the face of the club and I saw him there working out regularly in the mid 1990's. He was broke. He drove an old 1970's era Ram Van beat to hell. He was hunched over and stiff kneed. It was when the Bulls were on their 2nd three-peat and it was interesting to listen to him eviscerate the Bulls to all of the middle aged fan boys that followed him around the gym. His big criticism was that "4 of the 5 Bulls starters couldn't shoot the basketball." This was an over statement - Pippen and Harper were capable shooters, Rodman and Longley not so much. 6th man Toni Kucoc had a great 3pt shot and could drive to the basket well for a big man, but was lacking in defense and rebounding. Anyway, Wilt's FT % was terrible as I recall, so I though it was funny that he of all people would choose shooting as the big weakness. FG % is pretty easy when you can stand under the basket uncontested and drop the ball through the hoop from 1-3 feet away.

    Don't get me wrong, Wilt and Brown were great players, but their size was a big factor in their overall greatness. It's when guys like Walter Payton and Michael Jordan can do the same or better as smaller players that further proves the point.

German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach said on Wednesday that a fourth vaccination will be necessary in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic due to the more contagious Omicron variant. To maintain your fully vaccinated status will soon require a fourth dose. Harvard and the NFL have both mandated the boosters. So they will soon mandate a fourth injection and continue to mandate masks because the vaccines are non-sterilizing and do not prevent the spread of coronavirus.

    If Kupp finishes leading the NFL in yards per receiving and/or sets the record with 2,000 yrds in a single season, wouldn't this prove once and for all that whites can indeed play WR at an effective level?

    Parkour is a modern physical activity that consists of using the environment, mostly urban, as a playground of obstacles. The aims of this study were (i) to investigate age, anthropometric and training characteristics of Parkour practitioners, called ‘traceurs’ and (ii) to assess jump performances and muscular characteristics of traceurs, compared to those of gymnasts and power athletes. The mean age of the population of traceurs studied (n = 130) was 19.4 ± 4.3 years, women represented 12.4% of the total field and mean training volume was 8.1 ± 0.5 hours/week. Vertical and long jump performances were analysed on smaller samples of participants (four groups, n = 15 per group); and eccentric (−90° s−1, −30° s−1), concentric (30° s−1, 90° s−1) and isometric knee extensors torques were evaluated by means of an isokinetic dynamometer. Traceurs showed greater (P < .01) drop jump performance (64.9 ± 1.5 cm) than gymnasts (60.9 ± 1.1 cm) and greater (P < .001) counter movement jump with arms (59.2 ± 1.5 cm) than power athletes (53.0 ± 1.4 cm). Standing long jump performances were greater (P < .05) for traceurs (282.7 ± 5.2 cm) compared to other athletes (gymnasts: 273.9 ± 7.3 cm; power athletes: 261.3 ± 6.7 cm). Eccentric knee extension torques were greater (P < .05) for traceurs compared to other athletes. This study revealed that Parkour training induces major development of jump and muscular skills. The use of such training has several practical applications as it provides a better resistance to high eccentric load and helps reinforce musculoskeletal structures.

Vertical and long jump performances were analysed on smaller samples of participants (four groups, n = 15 per group); and eccentric (−90° s−1, −30° s−1), concentric (30° s−1, 90° s−1) and isometric knee extensors torques were evaluated by means of an isokinetic dynamometer. Traceurs showed greater (P < .01) drop jump performance (64.9 ± 1.5 cm) than gymnasts (60.9 ± 1.1 cm) and greater (P < .001) counter movement jump with arms (59.2 ± 1.5 cm) than power athletes (53.0 ± 1.4 cm). Standing long jump performances were greater (P < .05) for traceurs (282.7 ± 5.2 cm) compared to other athletes (gymnasts: 273.9 ± 7.3 cm; power athletes: 261.3 ± 6.7 cm). Eccentric knee extension torques were greater (P < .05) for traceurs compared to other athletes. This study revealed that Parkour training induces major development of jump and muscular skills. The use of such training has several practical applications as it provides a better resistance to high eccentric load and helps reinforce musculoskeletal structures.

    When I want to see athleticism I watch Parkour not a bunch of guys hobbling clumsily across a field and breaking their fragile tendons.

    “Athletics” is for the people who flunked out of Parkour. Parkour is life.

    The best two heavyweights by far are white. The best light heavyweight is white. The best super middleweight is white. The best middleweight is white with some Asian DNA.

    Lots of Great Black Hopes out there, but they continue to be destroyed like Deontay Wilder was twice. The various white liberal and Jewish sports journalists are not happy! Not to mention all the black supremacist cucked fans and anti white black boxing fans.

    Which is pretty funny for someone like Tyson Fury, who Manny Steward said many years ago was a better talker than Ali and would be a dominant heavyweight champ. How entertaining is tyson fury to non boxing people? He is like a rocky movie character come to life - a mix of Apollo creed and Ivan dragov - except he is real! He can brutally knock people out, he can outbox them technically, and he always makes sure to out talk them professional wrestling style in the leadup to the fight.

    Tyson Fury was perfectly abstracted form my subconscious, and I still can’t believe he’s real. It’s the strongest evidence I’m aware of that we really are living in a simulation.

    That said, I realized to my great relief that I’m not really racist when my heart fell as I saw Tyrone Woodley hit the canvas the other day. I was all the way for him. That was one helluva punch, though.

    I can't remember how many times I've read how the Heavyweight Champion is the symbol of physical supremacy when the champion is black. Various writers of a left-wing orientation loved the theme.

    The idea of the Heavyweight Title as the symbol of physical supremacy mysteriously disappeared the last two decades when white men started winning it.

    I often heard white guys in boxing gyms tell me something-something about blacks having a longer wrist-to-elbow bone which gave them superior defense.

    Sadly the NFL season is at risk of shutting down because a few bad apples decided not to get vaccinated. With only 97% of players and staff fully vaccinated the season is still at risk because the unvaccinated are spreading coronavirus to the fully vaccinated. The vaccines only work when 100% of the population is fully vaccinated and boosted. Harvard had the same problem, despite 99% vaccination rate they had to shut down the school because only 65% have gotten the booster.

    That guy was an old fat fuck, not a doctor. Hamstring flexibility reduces injuries.

    https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/03635465990270021001


    The purpose of this intervention study was to prove that increasing flexibility of the hamstring musculotendinous unit would decrease the number of lower extremity overuse injuries that occur in military infantry basic trainees. Two different companies going through basic training at the same time were used. Hamstring flexibility was checked at the beginning and at the end of the 13-week infantry basic training course. The control company (N 148) proceeded through normal basic training. The intervention company (N 150) followed the same program but added three hamstring stretching sessions to their already scheduled fitness program. All subsequent lower extremity overuse injuries were recorded through the troop medical clinic. Hamstring flexibility increased significantly in the intervention group compared with the control group. The number of injuries was also significantly lower in the intervention group. Forty-three injuries occurred in the control group for an incidence rate of 29.1%, compared with 25 injuries in the intervention group for an incidence rate of 16.7%. Thus, in this study, the number of lower extremity overuse injuries was significantly lower in infantry basic trainees with increased hamstring flexibility

    Time to recognize that sports were the first salvo fired against White males. Plenty of elite White athletes have been overlooked for the past half century due to the lie of black athletic supremacy. In fact it’s black mediocrity that hampers sports at all levels. White kids need to be given confidence and support from their parents and coaches and not be told they are the wrong color and aren’t athletic. I for one support White athletes and they are all viewed as a threat to the status quo.

    He is not white and was the bomb threat. Rentzel was the hands guy. Hayes was never noted for his hands, just his speed. If track and field had been professional then, he probably never would have played football. As it was, he wasn't offered a scholarship to any major school. He was on a football scholarship at a black college. He is like when the 49ers tried out the 110 meter hurdler Renaldo Nehemiah.

    There were plenty of black wide receivers back then but I don't remember many of them (truth be told to get their names correct I had to look up the white ones as well). The LA Rams had Bernie Casey opposite Jack Snow. Like I said, they generally were not noted for hands but the whole game was different. A 200 yard passing game was a decent day. 1000 yeards in a 14 game season was an almost unreachable goal for a receiver.

    I don't think Hayes was the reason for zone defenses. Cornerbacks have generally always been faster than the recievers. Bump and Run was in use long after Hayes was gone and only disappeared because of rule changes making it nuch harder to avoid a penalty. A zone defense or man to man is usually just based on the talent of your cornerbacks. I don't think Dion Sanders ever had to play zone.

    The driver in F1 is probably worth at most 2/10 of a second on the lap times while the car is worth about 2 seconds. That is why the big money teams have a run at the top and then slide back into the top of the midrange for a dry spell when they don't win anymore. Red Bull is just sorting out the Honda engine.

    This is why you tend to see so many races where both teammates are on the starting grid on the same line or at most the difference is one line.
