Interest in Colin Kaepernick Was ‘Fake’

New reports state that league interest in Colin Kaepernick was fake. At the same time, the quarterback is making waves for his inclusion in Madden 21–and his curiously high rating. Colin Kaepernick is an incredibly influential activist in the outcry against police brutality, but that does not make him a good quarterback. Colin Kaepernick is back. At least in digital form. The former San Francisco quarterback will be included in Madden 21, and his rating will be higher than some of his counterparts with starting jobs in the NFL. While…

Gareth Bale Is Proving He Lacks the Mindset to Be a Real Madrid Great

Gareth Bale has revealed Real Madrid blocked his attempts to leave last summer. Bale still wants to move on, but says his club makes “things very difficult.” Bale has gotten the right mentality to be a star in Madrid the way Cristiano Ronaldo was. Gareth Bale was the world’s most expensive player when he joined Real Madrid in 2013. The Welshman has won the Champions League four times, La Liga twice, and one Copa del Rey trophy during his seven years in the Spanish capital. So everybody is happy, right?…

Tom Brady Finally Gets a Little Revenge on the Indianapolis Colts

The only real blemish on Tom Brady’s record is the Deflate-Gate scandal. If he were mad at the Colts and wanted revenge, it is not hard to understand why. But if you live a life like Tom Brady, do you care about something as petty as revenge? On the one hand, you could say that Tom Brady should have nothing against the Indianapolis Colts. It’s not as if the Colts gave him a lot of trouble over the years. Sure, a lot of the games were close, hard-fought contests. But…

Carson Wentz’s Chances of Playing a Full Season Just Disappeared

Andre Dillard’s season-ending injury puts brittle Carson Wentz at risk. 38-year-old Jason Peters will be challenged by elite pass-rushers in the NFC East. The Eagles have an injury-prone quarterback behind a worryingly thin offensive line. Carson Wentz has been struck down by injury in each of the last three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Doug Pederson should prepare for more misery where his brilliant but brittle quarterback is concerned. Wentz’s chances of playing every game for the Eagles in 2020 disappeared when left tackle Andre Dillard suffered a…

Le’Veon Bell is More Trouble Than He’s Worth To The Jets

Le’Veon Bell was a great running back during his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers. But that has not been the case since signing with the New York Jets. While his contract will make it tough to trade him, his lackluster play and issues with head coach Adam Gase may force the Jets to pull the trigger and get rid of him. Le’Veon Bell was supposed to be a game-changer for the New York Jets. He would give the Jets a legitimate run game and be an additional target for Sam…

Clippers’ Beverley Goes Too Far During Return to Play Negotiations

Clippers guard Patrick Beverley, who has a history of run-ins with other players, reportedly went at NBPA director Michele Roberts during a meeting earlier this week. Tensions were high among NBA players as they planned their next move in the wake of the Milwaukee Bucks’ decision to boycott a playoff game on Wednesday in protest of the Jacob Blake shooting. The league postponed subsequent games, and uncertainty abounded over whether players were willing to finish the season. Multiple players, including NBPA president Chris Paul and Miami Heat forward/center Udonis Haslem,…

Jerry Jones Is Not Wrong With His Stance on National Anthem Protest

Jerry Jones is the most powerful owner in the NFL, which is why many want to hear him speak out in favor of social reform. He remained uncharacteristically quiet all summer and did not satisfy anyone with his comments on ‘grace.’ By proposing the team does something similar to what it did in 2017, it sounds like he will not do anything different. But that may not be the case. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been a lightning rod for criticism ever since he bought the franchise. It is…

Did Marcus Morris Intentionally Step on Luka Doncic’s Injured Ankle?

Marcus Morris is stupid enough to intentionally step on Dallas Mavericks’ superstar Luka Doncic’s already gimpy left ankle. Does Morris have a history of being a dirty player? Should Adam Silver and the NBA league-office suspend Morris for Game 6? Doncic’s buzzer-beating, step-back triple on Sunday broke the Los Angeles Clippers‘ back. Luka’s overtime dagger gave life to the Mavericks, knotting the first-round best-of-seven playoff series at 2-2. Doncic was a game-time decision due to a left ankle sprain after Game 4. It certainly didn’t look as if it was…

Earl Thomas Is the Last Player the Win-Now Cowboys Need

The Dallas Cowboys would be smart to avoid Earl Thomas after his release from the Baltimore Ravens. Thomas is not the force he was, despite what Richard Sherman thinks. Dallas has enough potential character concerns on defense. Earl Thomas is available, but the Dallas Cowboys won’t come calling if they have any sense. Joining the Cowboys is a possibility for Thomas after the Baltimore Ravens released the Pro Bowl safety on Sunday. A brief statement on the Ravens’ official website confirmed Thomas’ departure: We have terminated [safety] Earl Thomas’ contract…
