SportsCenter anchor Stan Verrett joined the chorus of opinions on Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest with a take that drew from his own family’s history of service to the United States, and the discrimination that followed. It’s as strong, and fair, a commentary you’re likely to hear from anyone on this issue.
Drew Brees, like most every other NFL-adjacent person, has weighed in on Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest. Brees has echoed a common line: He’s fine with Kaepernick protesting for what he believes in, but has an issue with him using the American flag (which he called “sacred”) to do so.
Trevor Siemian was named the Broncos’ starting quarterback this afternoon. Let’s ask receiver Emmanuel Sanders what he thinks about that.
What you are about to hear represents an utterly monumental lack of self-awareness on Donald Trump’s part—astonishing, I know.
Joey Bosa’s nearly monthlong holdout is over. The rookie defensive end and the San Diego Chargers finally agreed upon a contract, the team announced today. Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.
During yesterday’s preseason game between the San Diego Chargers and Minnesota Vikings, Fox announcers Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch decided to shill on behalf of the people trying to steal $350 million from taxpayers so that they can build a new football stadium in San Diego.
In separate interviews last week with the four players alleged to have been PED users in an Al Jazeera investigation, the NFL reportedly brought no new evidence or witnesses to the table. And that may have been the point.
The Jacksonville Jaguars defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 26-21 in a preseason game last night. Let’s see how Jags quarterback Blake Bortles felt about the win:
Are you still buying the annual iterations of a series that peaked a decade ago, shelling out 60 bucks for nothing but updated rosters and the privilege of continuing to be beaten by racist 14-year-olds in online head-to-head play? Happy glitch hunting.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick spoke with the media today for about 20 minutes, answering numerous questions about his decision to refuse to stand during the U.S. national anthem before Friday’s preseason game. (Kaepernick also refused to stand for the national anthem before the first two preseason…
Branden Oliver missed much of last season on injured reserve, and the Chargers running back may be in danger of missing the 2016 season too after an injury suffered during today’s preseason game against Minnesota, one that video replay appears to reveal as an exploding Achilles tendon.
Preseason football can feel pointless; enough so that those watching are sometimes compelled to turn to more interesting pursuits. Such as having sex on the field, as these bats did in Saturday night’s Lions-Ravens game, captured by Baltimore Sun photographer Karl Ferron:
Cowboys QB Tony Romo could miss six to ten weeks with a broken bone in his back.
Colin Kaepernick is speaking out after the 49ers quarterback refused to stand for the U.S. national anthem before last night’s preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, telling the NFL that “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”
It’s 2016, and forgive us for being amazed to witness a connection between Robert Griffin III and Josh Gordon, a 43-yard touchdown bomb, or simply that the Cleveland Browns managed to do something competently—even if it’s just the preseason, and even if it’s just against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The reasons Joey Bosa haven’t signed boil down to the timing of his payouts, and a couple of million dollars that won’t even come into play unless they cut him in 2019 and someone else signs him. This stuff is standard practice for draft picks this high; the Chargers have a team policy against it.
Last night, the Cowboys played the Seahawks in each team’s third preseason game, a.k.a The One Where The Starters Play Until Halftime. In the backfield for Dallas was Ezekiel Elliot, making his pro debut. In the secondary for Seattle was Kam Chancellor, trying extremely hard to pull some “welcome to the NFL” business…
Plutocratic bologna Sheldon Adelson attempted to keep his purchase of the Las Vegas Review-Journal a secret.
