Part of it is, no NFL team wants to give Kapernick a stage for his BS, possibly because the teams recognize that NFL games are not the proper place for these statements. But also, and this cannot be understated, Kaepernick suxx.

Kapernick made the pros and had a nice little run. He got figured out.

AB tossed a bag of gummy weinerschnitzels ar his estranged fiance and police. Among many other things. He got signed because he can play.

Deshaun is still a Texan because he can play. His tugging fascination not withstanding.

32 teams did not sign Kapernick because of his views. They just agree with Danesdad.

And because the nfl paid him off. I thought once they paid him this would be over. There will be people saying sign kap he is better then so and so 30 years from now. When is the last time he played no way he is in nfl shape on his vegan diet. The nfl is the only sport I watch and play fantasy football, daily fantasy and bet. But the kneeling, Lesean McCoy stretching during anthem and the Steelers leaving Villanueva alone for anthem ruined it for a while for me.

This team (players, coaches, front office) has not learned a thing about doing stupid 💩 on social media.

Going back to AB doing FB live in the post game locker room. The only reason Tomlin fined him was because it leaked out live when One Ring With Bill's Team Mike calling Six Ring Bill and the Pats "a-holes".

The TokTok stuff got JuJu jacked up on a hit, fumble, and his nose rubbed in it. Never to be confused with a member of Mensa, he goes yapping again about "Browns is Browns" before the playoff prison shower the Browns gave the totally unprepared Steelers. Then his protege Claypool proved he's already a lost cause by saying how the Browns gonna get "clapped" by the Chiefs, when in fact they darn near beat them and a case can be made that if calls were not missed they would have.

Just wait until someone ear-holes Claypool and as he writhes on the field the Browns all clap.

Now Bush chimes in. He should go look up Kapernick's 10-24 record as a starter after that SB run. Rudolph would have done better than that.

As for Bush, he's played like what, 13 or 14 of 32 possible games? Had a big spurt of "splash" plays right away as a rookie but also has been inconsistent at times.

But gonna put Tebow to sleep when they play the Jags. Play the Kapernick card. Why tweet that?

Really, as 3rd TE on the roster, has QB turned TE Gentry shown anything that you could say for sure Tebow could not do? If Tebow doesn't work out, just another one of hundreds of roster cuts to come. But if he does, imagine the possibilities - stick him at H-back, motion him across the formation, Lawrence hands it to him, now you got a run/pass option with a pretty big athletic dude that has NFL QB experience. And for what? Minimum contract with incentives?

Doesn't matter. Bush needs to not worry about who the Jags are signing and focus on getting healthy to stay on the field and being a more consistent player. But no, gotta go tweet more bulletin board material and make race the forefront. The lunatics continue to run the asylum.

Not even close to the player and the professional that Shazier was. And the current set of coaches are not in the same galaxy as the previous two staffs.

They continue to make themselves look foolish and no one tries to stop it.

Tebow, who I said from the beginning should be a TE, stayed healthy, stayed in football shape, stayed close to the game, and never made a negative spectacle of himself. He is a gifted athlete and has a great mind for the game. He wasn't the best QB to play the game but he knew the game and respected it. By the way he is like the 7th TE the Jags have on their roster so regardless how much Urban raved about his tryout he still has to show he can bring it on Sunday.

Tebow was raised and played HS ball in Jacksonville, won 2 NCAA D1 championships with Meyer at Florida and will fill many empty seats in that stadium. Meyer will use him as a quadruple threat H back (blocker, runner, receiver, passer).

If Kapernick was a starter quality QB, he would be playing. Nobody is going to pay him what he demands and no team wants to put up with controversy he brings from a backup.

Tebow was a good college QB, a typical U of Florida limited QB. The Broncos were foolish not only to draft him in the first round, but to trade back into the first round to get him.

Tebow is athletic enough to be a backup TE and special teams player.

And he'd lose way more paying customers than gain for every NFL francise. Except maybe Baltimore & Washington. Tebow will easily pay for his contract through the number game tickets he sells in Jacksonville. Even if he stands on the sidelines 90% of the snaps. Smart business decision.

Hindsight is always 20/20 easy to say that now about him. Not like he was a bust made playoffs and won a playoff game. A lot worse QBs picked earlier then he was that have never even made playoffs.

People aren’t going to be lining up to see Tebow. Jags fans are excited about Lawrence probably don’t give a darn Tebow is on team

I'd bet money on it. HS & College football is king in the south. Tebow is a football hero in Florida and especially north Florida\Jacksonville area. He'll fill a lot of seats in that stadium.

Taking Tebow in the first and trading up for him was highly questioned at the time. It turned out to be right. The Broncos almost certainly could have gotten him in the 2nd round. Tebow had a very short NFL career as a QB, not what you'd expect for a first round pick.

I briefly saw that the Steelers play Buffalo in week 1. Is that home or away? Anyone else see the rest of the schedule yet?

If the Patriots and Steelers both finish in the same position in their respective divisions they will.
Yeah, they both might finish 3rd this year!

Buffalo, GB, KC, rising Charger team, Tenn, and Seattle, not including the four against the Ratbirds and Brownies. That's a tough slate, as expected due to winning the division.

A few key players get hurt early, might be looking at that Top Ten pick sooner than most expect. With the cap, depth is even more of a challenge this year.

But hey, we'll be ready for the Jags 3rd string tight end someday!

Ben goes down could go from winning division to getting swept by division.
Ben went down two years ago and they didn’t get swept by the division. The Browns are better now than they were then. It will interesting to see how they respond when there are expectations of them to succeed. They haven’t had that in a long time.

The Bengals will still likely be lousy. Just because they finally have a good QB doesn’t mean they’ll be good. They are a bad, poorly managed franchise.

It’s definitely a tough schedule. The Steelers and the Ravens have the toughest schedules in the league.

I often read about what will happen if Ben is hurt for a long period of time, but basically any team whose starting QB goes down for any length of time will struggle. Foles was an anomaly. You never want to see injuries, but at least one of the teams the Steelers play could lose their QB or get hammered by injuries. What happens to the Packers if Rodgers gets hurt or decides he won’t play for them? What if something happens to Jackson for the Ravens, or Wilson with the Seahawks?

Any team that sustains injuries to their key players can finish with a losing record.

That was 2 years ago... I’m talking about this year coming up a lot has changed in nfl and afc north. And you read that about Ben because of his elbow injury and surgery. Now if Rodgers, Wilson, Jackson had the same injury and surgery you might hear that more about them. Also fact that he is 39. Not to many people worried about Wilson and Jackson’s age. If bens healthy I don’t think get swept but I do think could finish last In division.
