Let's not try to explain away the dog fighting/killing, it was inexcusable.

Re: Around the NFL (Preseason edition)

ugh...Kap, Vick. yucky topic. Just headache guys.


Changing it up...how about Scot MccCloughan joined twitter last week...and he's great.

https://twitter.com/MccloughanScot

Read through, good question/answers from him. Like a couple responses:

@MccloughanScot if you had the 1st pick in the draft, and could sign Kirk Cousins or draft a qb. What would you do?

Scot Mccloughan :

I'd take a pass rusher


Big fan Scot do you think the 2018 quarterback draft is similar to the 1983 QB draft/Who are the top QB's this year?


Scot Mccloughan

Yes...a lot of talent this year

During your years with the Skins who did u miss out on in the draft because he was taken right before u picked?

Scot Mccloughan

Ryan Kelly the center from Alabama

I wasn't, just giving a possible reason a few people don't find it as offensive as others do.

Jordan Matthews has a chip fracture in his sternum – ProFootballTalk

LOL that's like buying a lemon at the dealer... Man the Bills have the worst luck. I'd hate to be a fan of them. I live here now and I feel bad for the fans

Highly debatable. Is he better than half the backups in this league? Yes. This is the one rare instance where the talent isn't worth the headache. If he was a starter he'd be signed already.
Vick had Tony Dungy in is corner lobbying for him. Who does Kap have? His biggest supporter and the one person who got him to play at his very best is coaching in college.

I think it is just bad luck, because I don't think Jordan Matthews was known to be an injury-prone player.

Please tell me why Seattle owner Paul Allen and the Seahawks in a dreary liberal oasis section of the country passed on him?

Or the fact liberal San Fran a city where conservative speakers are routinely barred from speaking let him go ?
My apologies for bringing politics into it. Allen isn't bringing him in for the same reason every other team isn't bringing him in. They don't want the headache and/or the potential loss of profit.

Maybe,IMHO on the CK thing. Yes it's money to the owners "collusion" no. Negative press without a doubt.MTK you might get mad but I think the fact that he isn't that good of a QB is he worth the time and aggravation and disruption to the team,no.The NFL is a private organization(a private company)if it wants to put a clause in my contract or the NFL Collective Bargaining agreement they can.I think rule #41 something (or around there) says conduct "detrimental to the League"can be punishable.If he wants to fight for a cause or beat his chest ...fine, all for it and is it his right,yes, on his own time,not someone else's.

No need for apologies, just tell me to piss off. I really wish someone would just sign him so I can stop hearing bout it.

I swear if Miami would have signed tebow last week over kap, the internet would have crashed.

He is better than a lot of the backups in the league, but he pissed off a lot of folks with his politics. I think he just has to wait a bit til he gets back in the league.

Ratings were already taking a hit unrelated to CK

Re: Around the NFL (Preseason edition)

Brandon Beane doesn’t want to hear that the Bills are tanking – ProFootballTalk

So the Jets and Bills have already threw in the towel... Miami has no QB..

PATS 15-1.

I heard a NFL license merchandise manufacture interview said his sales were down big time and their numbers indicated CK incident based on feedback was a factor.

wish we could've grabbed him...he's got to be better than what Long is doing.

I know Long is changing positions, but you hope at some point he starts to show a little more.
