3 Takeaways From Eagles-Seahawks

Another week, another Eagle’s loss. Carson Wentz and the Eagles seem to get worse with each passing week. Never have I ever seen a team so disjointed and awkward. The Eagles are BAD, but in fairness they were somewhat competitive against a good Seahawks team. Here are my 3 takeaways from the game.

  1. It’s not all Carson Wentz’s fault

The general public and media all seem to think Carson is to blame for the bad play. While he has not played well he is not totally to blame. For one the offensive line is dreadful. Wentz was sacked 6 times, none of them were because of him holding the ball for too long. Wentz is the most sacked QB in the NFL, that kind of pressure definitely effects his ability to feel confident in his throws. Because they have a shitty offensive line they can’t run the ball further putting the pressure on Wentz’s abilities.

Secondly the WRs are not good. Why is Alshon Jeffrey playing? Travis Fulgham was one of the best young WRs early on in the season and he was targeted 2 times Monday. Why is he not playing? All night Eagles WRs failed to gain any sort of separation from Seahawks CBs. How is Carson supposed to make plays if his WRs aren’t open? Jalen Reagor was drafted in the 1st round to be an outside playmaker yet he hasn’t been that. He had a grand total of 3 catches for 11 yards. Wow! Buttttttttt Wentz does deserve criticism especially after throws like this.

2. The play calling is atrocious

Doug Pederson should not be calling the plays. The route combinations the receivers run does not create open space or challenge opposing team CBs. It makes a bad offense so much more inefficient when you can’t call good plays. Why does Doug Pederson even bother with playing Jalen Hurts? The put him in for the sole purpose of running a read option. By now opposing defenses know this and they stack the box and like we saw yesterday the Eagles failed to gain any yards using it. Miles Sanders is the Eagles best playmaker and he had a total of 6 carries. WTF you can’t throw the ball well so what does Doug Pederson decide to do? Continue to throw the ball and not give your best offensive weapon any touches.

The Eagles need an actual offensive coordinator to run the offense. Guess what the Eagles actually had an offensive coordinator Frank Reich when they won the Super Bowl and it worked! I don’t know why Doug Pederson thinks he is a play calling God when the Eagles offense has looked like shit the past 2 years. But something needs to change.

3. The defense stepped up

The Eagles D really really stepped up yesterday. The game at several moments could easily have turned into a blowout but the defense was always able to get a stop when needed. They shut down every receiver not named DK Metcalf and the Seahawks could not run the ball. The defense has definitely improved since early in the season which is nice to see. But one thing I cannot get over is how the Eagles left Darius Slay to cover DK Metcalf with no help. I understand Slay is supposed to be the Eagles lockdown corner but Metcalf torched him several times and there was no safety help. I don’t know if its Jim Schwartz just not respecting DK but it was a mistake. But overall I am still pleased with how the defense played overall.

The Eagles are not winning the NFC East this year. The Redskins have a much better defense and Alex Smith is a proven winner. Maybe that’s a good thing though. The Eagles are a dysfunctional team. They haven’t drafted a decent skill position player in years and as a fanbase we are still holding onto the Super Bowl win from 3 years ago. Howie Roseman needs to go. That was made abundantly clear yesterday when the DK Metcalf the guy the Eagles passed up on 3 times had almost as many catches and yards as JJ Arceaga Whiteside does in his whole career. Change needs to happen, hopefully more loses like this will make that clear.

Why Is the Left Lying to Themselves About Portland?

For over 60 days Portland has descended into chaos and violence. Every night Antifa launches attacks on the Federal Courthouse in Portland in an effort to burn it down. Any other year this would be considered violence and law enforcement intervention would be encouraged, or perhaps this would be considered even terrorism. But because this is the 2020 now this kind of terrorism is considered “peaceful”. But what the left doesn’t realize is that this and incidents like this will help Trump win in 2020.

A peaceful bomb
So peaceful
These are the kind of people in Portland right now

There are countless examples of violence from these “protests”, how can anyone seriously consider this peaceful? This isn’t even a protest, unless we consider destroying federal property a protest. This is no longer about Black Lives Matter or George Floyd. It’s about anarchy and Marxism or whatever the fuck these people care about. The sad thing is that events like this actually undermines the peaceful protests going on across the country as all the news has been talking about for the past week is Portland.

Nothing speaks BLM by burning down a courthouse
Classy
There are starving kids in Africa
Peaceful

Why are Democratic leaders actively encouraging this kind of behavior? The Mayor of Portland is actively encouraging this kind of behavior. He even has the balls to turn it into a PR stunt and he actually participated in a riot with these psychos. Representative Jerry Nadler also supports these weirdos. Trying to put the blame on federal law enforcement officers for starting the violence. Probably worst of all Nancy Pelosi compared federal law enforcement officers who are doing their job to Nazis. Democrat Party leaders should not be encouraging terrorism.

It is a safe assumption that about 10% of any population is extreme. So why is the Democratic Party catering to the extremists? This is how the Democrats lose the moderate vote come November. Moderates don’t want weirdos to burn down their towns and cities, they just want peace.

What a clown
This is Democrat leadership

I hate Elon Musk, I think he is a fraud but I do agree with this statement. November seems so far away but it will be interesting to see what happens when it gets here, if we even make it that far.

Some actual words of wisdom from Elon Musk

The Left and the Mainstream Media Are Lying About the Portland Protests

For 50 days the City of Portland has descended into chaos as Antifa members have clashed with both federal and local law enforcement. Now there is outrage because federal law enforcement officers are supposedly acting as “secret police”. This is total bullshit. These have not been peaceful protests contrary to what the mainstream media and Democratic politicians want you to believe.

For starters Portland has been a war zone for 50 days. The mainstream media has ignored this for much of the 50 days. These are some of the things that law enforcement officers are having to deal with.

“Peaceful” protesters threatening to kill kids that’s totally normal
Nothing like destroying a statue of the founder of our country
Typical Antifa cowards
Fat whale

Law enforcement officers have been battling this for weeks and yet no one is supporting them. Antifa members are armed and dangerous. Their goal is to injure police officers. Whether it be with lasers, rocks or fireworks these aren’t peaceful people. Just take a look at some of the weapons these animals are carrying.

All peaceful protesters need a sword
“Peaceful” people casually using lasers to blind police
Weirdos
“Peaceful” protester fighting fascists

Federal law enforcement unfortunately to the Democrats is not acting as a “secret police”. Law enforcement arrests people, and when they arrest people they detain and question them. They are in unmarked vans probably because they don’t want their cars to get destroyed like other cop cars have been the past two months. This isn’t 1984, or China. People aren’t getting disappeared or sent to re-education camps. The left doesn’t seem to have any idea of what law enforcement does.

We have established that these aren’t peaceful protests. But now these Democratic politicians are trying to use these riots as a way to create propaganda against Trump. Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders and Portland’s disgrace of a leader Mayor Ted Wheeler are all trying to deflect the chaos and blame Trump. The Democratic Party is embracing anarchy in order to try and get Trump out of power. Ted Wheeler has taken zero accountability for the chaos in his city. In fact he has the balls to blame federal law enforcement officers for the riots. Disgusting.

Disgusting
This is everything a leader shouldn’t be
Bernie is so against Trump he is trying to change the narrative of these riots

If this is the Democrat’s idea of peaceful protests that is incredibly sad. Riots like these undermine the initial purpose of the protests in the first place. It is no longer about Black Lives Matter, now its all about anarchy and Marxism. Its disgusting and if Democratic leadership continues to allow anarchy and chaos I know I will be voting Republican this November.

Idiot Mayor

Shaun King Needs to Be Cancelled

On this blog I am vehemently against the notion of cancel culture. I can’t stand it and it needs to stop in our society. If you want proof I have written about it here, here and here. But there is one person in this world who 100% needs to be cancelled and that is Shaun King.

If you have not heard of Shaun King let me inform you. For starters Shaun King is a white man, but he is not any ordinary white man. He is a white man who is pretending to be black. The man on Shaun’s birth certificate is white. But Shaun claims his mom had an affair with a light skin man and as a result Shaun is now “black”. He is no different than that crazy white lady who claimed to be black in 2015. Shaun has somehow used this delusion to become a vocal leader of the Black Lives Matter movement. He has over a million followers on twitter and he has contributed to the Young Turks and New York Daily News. The problem with Shaun King is that he has hijacked the Black Lives Matter movement and made it all about himself.

As I mentioned above Shaun King is not Black. Because he is not Black he should not by a vocal leader in the Black Lives Matter movement. Here is why because Shaun is white he has now taken his privileged and distorted the message of the Black Lives Matter movement. It is the same principle as the white people who decided to loot and destroy things during the initial protests in May. We take something that we don’t truly understand and make it all about ourselves. Even though Shaun claims to be a supporter of Black Lives Matter black people actively hate him. See these tweets down below.

I cannot believe 1 million people actively made the decision to follow Shaun King on twitter. He actively steals content as shown below and he supports destroying statues of Jesus. Like who the fuck does this guy think he is. Perhaps worse of all he has a history of attacking African American women on twitter and calling them racist. He regularly uses his platform to shame and hate anyone who speaks out against him. He is a narcissistic bully that needs to be cancelled now! I believe in people learning from their mistakes and second chances. The only way Shaun King can redeem himself is to delete twitter and leave the public life forever.

Confirmed Shaun King hates Jesus

Addison Rae is Getting Cancelled for Being “Racist”

Probably one of the most unlikely targets for cancel culture, TikTok superstar Addison Rae is getting cancelled for apparently being racist when she was younger. This is perhaps the most bizarre case of cancel culture in action that I’ve seen. So is Addison “racist” no, not really.

Addison has 2 things going against her. Number 1, she is a TikTok star. She has the highest number of followers on the platform with over 46 million. The problem being that TikTok is an insufferable platform that should be shutdown forever. I am not the only one who shares that sentiment, TikTok which is run by a Chinese company will most likely be banned in the United States due to issues with privacy. The second thing is that she is an attractive white female. White females seem to be the easiest targets of cancel culture just see JK Rowling and Lana Del Rey.

Addison has supposedly said 2 “racist” things one being a tweet that was a video supporting the statement the All Lives Matter. The other being a video which leaked in which she tries to get her friend to say the n-word. The one video she tweeted is crazy because she posted this video 4 years ago when she was 15. The other video was pretty bad, not gonna lie but from the sounds of it she was probably joking. So we are now at a point where we are punishing kids for mistakes they made as a kid. I guess everyone that has been shaming her on Twitter is perfect and have never done anything wrong in their life. I don’t think Addison Rae is racist, she was young and she did something stupid there is no denying that. There should just be some sort of statue of limitations on cancelling someone. I don’t think Addison is racist, she is still only 19 and she made some mistakes. But if people can forgive Desean Jackson than I’m sure we can forgive Addison.

Hamilton is the Next Target of Cancel Culture

Disclaimer I have not seen Hamilton.

Cancel culture strikes again. The hit Broadway show Hamilton has recently been on the receiving end of criticism relating to its portrayal of the founding fathers. Some people really do need to get a life. I guarantee all of the people who are criticizing Hamilton probably were the ones who loved it when it was first released.

These are just some of the people who are criticizing Hamilton. The main argument that I have seen these cancel culture people say is that Hamilton is not historically accurate. I mean no shit, the founding fathers weren’t black. Also Hamilton covers over 20 years of history, of course some liberties would need to be taken in order to make sure it’s entertaining. Finally please name me a Hollywood movie or play that is 100 percent historically accurate. I’ll wait.

CNN published an opinion piece by journalist Ed Morales. It is a bizarre piece which I do understand but I do not agree with. In this opinion piece he is critical of Hamilton because it’s views are contrasting with that of the Black Lives Matter movement. It is almost as if Morales wishes Hamilton could have foreseen this racial unrest and change its initial message. Hamilton is a statement within itself, no matter its plot. It took a very diverse cast portraying white historical figures and became a Broadway sensation. Probably inspiring and leading the way for future minority creators.

Again I have not seen Hamilton. That being said I do know one thing and that is Hollywood and show business as a whole is bias against people of color. Lin Manuel Miranda wrote a marvelous musical with a predominantly minority cast. That should be celebrated and admired. We need more original and diverse content in this world not less. Support minority content creators or there won’t be any.

Why Jemele Hill Should Be Cancelled

I’m gonna start this blog off by saying that I do not know much about Jemele Hill. All I know is that she worked for ESPN and she is currently trying to cancel Barstool Sports. When I logged onto twitter this morning I saw the #cancelljemele trending and upon a investigation I found that she had said something “transphobic” 11 years ago. So naturally she should be cancelled right?

Cancel culture is the absolute worse. I don’t think people should be cancelled for things that they said 5-10 years ago. But cancel culture is also very hypocritical. Jemele Hill got exposed because she was trying to cancel Barstool Sports for something they said about Kaepernick 4 years ago. But cancel culture doesn’t take into account context or satire which means that Jemele Hill now needs to be cancelled. Either everyone who ever said something offensive should be cancelled or no one should be. Let’s not be hypocrites please . What Dave Portnoy said was stupid and if I was African American I would probably take offense to it. But what Jemele Hill also said was also offensive to transgender people. So who should be cancelled? If I had it my way no one would be. People adapt and learn from things that they said, lets not osctracize or “cancel” anyone who said something stupid because as this incident proves everyone has said something stupid at one point or another.

College Football Preview: Arkansas Razorbacks

In this new series, I will be covering the most interesting teams for the 2020 College Football Season. We’re starting this series off with perhaps the worse Power 5 program last year and that is Arkansas. Arkansas went 2-10 last year and they were BAD. I mean really BAD just watch these highlights from their game against Western Kentucky. They are supposed to be an SEC team and yet they can barely beat an FCS team. But with almost a completely new coaching staff and some key transfers it should be a very interesting season for the Razorbacks to say the least.

This game pretty much sums up Arkansas’s 2019 season.

Key Players

Arkansas’s offense was quite terrible last year. It all started with the quarterback position. Arkansas had 5 different quarterbacks start last year and none were effective and combined to complete less than 50% of their passes and throw more interceptions than touchdowns. Former Florida quarterback Felipe Franks is gonna be the key to any success that the Razorbacks can have this year. If he goes gets injured or plays poorly its game over for any hope of success. Rakeem Boyd from Last Chance U fame is the Razorbacks best offensive weapon. New offensive coordinator Kendal Briles needs to give Boyd at least 20 touches a game as he only had 20+ touches in 5 games 2 of which they won. One good thing about this Razorbacks offense is that returns 3 out of their 4 leading receivers from last season. Treylon Burks, Trey Knox and Mike Woods are all young promising receivers who can add a depth of big play ability and reliability in addition to former Oklahoma receiver Jaqualyn Crawford who makes up a solid group of weapons for Franks to throw to.

Rakeem Boyd Arkansas’s most explosive weapon.

Arkansas’s defense ranked 111th last season and gave up 36 points per game. They have a lot of work to do but one key addition is former Clemson Tiger Xavier Kelly who has played in 26 career games as a tiger. Oklahoma linebacker Levi Draper also is a key addition to a Razorback defense that gave up 222 rushing yards per game. Returning LB Bumper Pool who was 2nd on the team in tackles and tackles for a lost adds additional depth. The real place that this Razorbacks defense will struggle is in the secondary and defensive line. In the secondary Kareem Curl is someone who will be deeply missed as he was the only Razorback with more than 1 interception. Greg Brooks Jr, Joe Foucha and Jarques McClellion and all returning DBs who registered 1 interception last season. The defensive line is even more depleted with only two defensive lineman returning who registered 0.5 sacks each. Arkansas’s run defense maybe improved with the additions at Kelly and Draper but it still will have the issue of not generating pass rush which will lead to issues in pass coverage.

A really positive addition to the Razorbacks in way of transfer is kicker AJ Reed from Duke. Last year Reed made 83% of his field goals and 100% of his extra points. He will replace Connor Limbert who struggled at times last year only making 73% of his field goals. In the return game Treylon Burks looks to be a solid option at the punt return and kick return position after averaging 10 yards a punt return and 22 yards per kick return.

Schedule

Week 1 vs Nevada

I’m gonna say that Arkansas will win this game and here’s 2 reasons why. For one it is in Fayetteville if this game was on the road it will be an easy win for Nevada. The second thing is that I’m gonna give Felipe Franks the benefit of the doubt. If he plays like he did in 2018 and can stay healthy this is a totally different Arkansas team.

Week 2 at Notre Dame

In South Bend against a top 25 team. Forget about it.

Week 3 at Mississippi State

This is the first real test for Arkansas. If Arkansas can win these kinda games than they can have success. But Mississippi State is still a tier above Arkansas and especially with the addition of KJ Costello this will be close win for Miss State

Week 4 vs Texas A&M

Texas A&M is still a much better team than Arkansas and even on neutral territory it still will be a loss for Arkansas.

Week 5 vs Charleston Southern

This should be an easy win against an FCS team in home territory.

Week 6 vs Alabama

Nope.

Week 7 vs LSU

See Week 6.

Week 8 vs Tennessee

I hate Tennessee for some reason. No matter what their record is or who they beat I still will believe that they stink. If Arkansas can stay healthy and can stay competitive against Alabama and LSU I believe that they will beat Tennessee.

Week 9 at Auburn

At Auburn, this is an easy loss.

Week 10 vs Ole Miss

Ole Miss stinks. Arkansas could’ve beat them last year if they had a quarterback. This year they do. Ole Miss lacks any real dynamic player makers and as a result Arkansas should run over Ole Miss at home.

Week 11 vs UL Monroe

On senior day against an inferior team, this should be an easy win.

Week 12 at Missouri

Final game of the season. Missouri is coming off a post season ban with probably one of the easiest schedules in SEC. With a lot of momentum coming off easy wins this should be a close game, but at the end of the day I think Missouri will win.

Final Record 5-7

At the end of the day if Arkansas does in fact finish 5-7 Razorback fans should feel grateful. They are dependent of 2 things if they can have solid quarterback play and if their defense can hold up. If those 2 things don’t come true than they are looking at a season similar to last season in which they lose to teams they should beat and get embarrassed by teams that are better than them. If they are good or bad they should be fun to watch.

Is Bubba Wallace the New Jussie Smollett?

So this is awkward, but it turns out the noose found in Bubba Wallace’s garage was not a noose, and rather a garage pull. #Bubbahoax was trending on twitter, and Bubba has been on a campaign to try and clear his name.

The fast escalation of this case is quite bizzare. Someone on his team reported the noose, and it blows on social media, with every mainstream news source covering it. He races on Monday and now it turns out after the FBI sent 15 agents to investigate the case, they found that, in fact it was a a garage pull. Where is the common sense? Nascar has been under intense quarantine with only drivers and a few crew members allowed at the track. There aren’t fans, there aren’t random people there, it’s only essential team members.

The “noose”

The thing about this incident is that it really does benefit Bubba’s career. Bubba is a, at best, mediocre Nascar driver. He is currently 21st in the Nascar standings with his previous 2 years finishing 28th. He is now thrust into national spotlight with mainstream media and celebrities a like focusing on his story. Bubba really is the most important Nascar driver right now, despite the fact that he doesn’t excel at the sport.

The weird thing is that this incident might actually hurt Nascar. Nascar’s fan base tends to be be pretty conservative, I mean they only recently banned the Confederate flag at its races. Bubba is mainly getting criticism from conservatives. Therefore its not unrealistic to think that this will hurt Nascar’s reputation with its main demographic.

Lebron James is one of many celebrities supporting Bubba Wallace

This case is really different than the Jussie Smollett case. First off, the Jussie Smollett case was flat out him, and only him lying and trying to be purposefully deceitful. No one in Wallace’s team was trying to be purposefully deceitful or trying to lie, it was just a big misunderstanding. Jussie Smollett is giant scumbag, Bubba Wallace is not. Bubba Wallace is not Jussie Smollett, but this incident should be a reminder to not jump to conclusions. They do look similar though.

The Future of Policing in America

The death of George Floyd has left Americans stunned and confused. Since his death countless police departments across the country have changed police policies and tactics, and several cities have gone so far as to say they will defund their police departments. The way we look at the police and how the police does their job will never be the same.

There is no question that George Floyd was murdered, that is pretty clear and obvious. That should have never have happened and is a clear example of police brutality. Not all cases are like such as in the case of Rayshard Brooks in which picture is far less clear. If that same situation happened a few months ago it probably wouldn’t have garnered any press or attention. Not only did Brooks give any officer a concussion he also tried to taze another officer. If that doesn’t meet the criteria of force then I don’t know what will. Officers need to feel protected in order to do their jobs effectively and if they don’t feel protected and safe, then we will mass resignations and retirements of officers, which might happen in DC. This clip from the HBO show Watchman is a pretty realistic idea of what policing may become in the future. Officers having to ask permission from a superior to use their weapon, maybe? Spoiler alert the officer featured in this clip gets shot.

Hindsight is 20/20. It is easy for us to judge someone from their mistakes after the fact. As civilians it is easy to judge and reprimand the officers involved in the Rayshard Brooks case. But we are not the ones putting our lives on the line. I love all these celebrities who criticize these cops yet have private security details which handle all their dirty work for them. How many bodyguards do you think Kim Kardashian has or Justin Timberlake? They will never be put into a situation similar to that of those officers involved in that case. Celebrities live a fragile existence. They are often not familiar with the dangers everyday people face so they stay in their lane. Rayshard Brooks death was sad and tragic. But if we start punishing officers for the force they use when they are in danger then the future of law enforcement looks bleak.

What is happening now in the mainstream media is that police are becoming villianised for the actions of a few officers. As a result law enforcement officers are no longer respected in their communities. So the real question is why would someone want to become a cop? With the defunding the police movement in full swing officers are probably gonna get paid less with fewer benefits. Less hiring will mean that they would have to work more, and if they can’t defend themselves when they are in danger why join? Police departments will have a much harder time recruiting officers and because of that they will be forced to accept the bottom of the barrel recruits. These are people who normally couldn’t become cops but now will because police departments are so desperate for recruits. And these scrub recruits are the dangerous ones because they are not qualified or able to complete the job as a police officer. So the cycle of bad police officers continues.

Violence is already up in New York City after they disbanded their plainclothes unit. Minneapolis which is actively trying to abolish their police department just had a shooting in which 11 people got shot. The Seattle Autonomous Zone which has 0 police presence had a shooting in which 2 people got shot with 1 getting killed. Cops in Atlanta are refusing to go into work. In an atmosphere in which there is no police naturally crime will flourish. The way we police in America needs to change, there is no denying that. But if we let our emotions get the best of us and we act before we think then we are looking straight into a future in which the world is like New York in the 1970s where crime runs rampant. And trust me we don’t want that. We need to work with the police and help them change not abolish them. Look at Camden if you want an example for how the police should change.
