Steelers vs. Titans, Week 11 Preview: An ode to JuJu Smith-Schuster

Steelers vs. Titans, Week 11 Preview: An ode to JuJu Smith-Schuster

JuJu Smith-Schuster has taken the Steelers by storm, and we preview the upcoming matchup with the Titans while paying homage to No. 19. The NFL feels kinda different. Colin Kaepernick, objectively the league’s most recognizable player, has filed a grievance against the NFL accusing the owners of working in cahoots to blacklist him. Jerry Jones, objectively the league’s most recognizable executive, is openly feuding with NFL owners and commissioner Roger Goodell. A large contingent of the league’s upper-echelon of talent has been sidelined with season-ending injuries. The scourge of...

Colin Kaepernick named GQ ‘Citizen of the Year’

While he's yet to land a new QB job in the National Football League, GQ magazine named Colin Kaepernick its 2017 Citizen of the Year, saying his take-a-knee protest against racism and police brutality has made him the "man who became the movement."

GQ names Colin Kaepernick ‘Citizen of the Year’

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is back. Not back in the NFL. Back in GQ.  And he’s the ‘Citizen of the Year.’ In the article’s introduction, the editors of the magazine compare Kaepernick to Muhammad Ali and Jackie Robinson, and name Kaepernick “indisputably, undeniably” one of the 20 best quarterbacks in the world. The article goes on to feature interviews from 49ers safety Eric Reid, Kaepernick’s girlfriend Nessa Diab and...

NFL Notes: Colin Kaepernick, Cardinals, Eagles, Redskins

Colin Kaepernick Ben Volin writes that free agent QB Colin Kaepernick shouldn’t jump at a chance to sign with a team at this point in the year, as it’s more likely he would be set up to fail by returning this late in the season. Instead, Volin believes Kaepernick should focus on training and ultimately … The post NFL Notes: Colin Kaepernick, Cardinals, Eagles, Redskins appeared first on NFLTradeRumors.co.

Report: Jimmy Garoppolo will make 49ers debut against Seahawks

Report: Jimmy Garoppolo will make 49ers debut against Seahawks

The Seahawks have unintentionally helped end some notable quarterback careers in the last few years. Tony Romo. Robert Griffin III. Maybe even Colin Kaepernick. (How much better would Kaepernick’s career numbers be if he didn’t struggle against Seattle every time, including an opportunity to make back-to-back Super Bowls?) But it looks like in a couple of weeks they are going to kick off the career of the newest San Francisco QB. Per FOX’s Jay Glazer, Jimmy Garoppolo will make his 49ers debut in Week 12 against the Seahawks: #49ers will start their new QB Jimmy Garoppolo for the...

Fantasy Football: Week 10 Friday six-pack

Sadly, injuries have been the biggest story (and downer) of this NFL season. More than national anthem protests. More than freezing out Colin Kaepernick. And even more than the Zeke-Jerry-Roger saga and declining TV ratings, though that last angle su…

A Realpolitik Argument for Signing Colin Kaepernick

A Realpolitik Argument for Signing Colin Kaepernick

There is a time for idealism and there is a time for pragmatism. This is definitely a time for the latter. By the time Otto Eduard Leopold von Bismarck was forced out of office in 1890, he’d had a pretty remarkable career for a German civil servant. He had outsmarted the political leadership of three major European nations, unified a nation under his liege, King Wilhelm I of Prussia (Kaiser Wilhelm I of the German Empire), set up a complicated system of alliances creating a balance of power to avoid yet another war after German unification, isolated his domestic political opponents,...

NFL Rumors: Bengals would have signed Colin Kaepernick after AJ McCarron trade

NFL Rumors: Bengals would have signed Colin Kaepernick after AJ McCarron trade

Had the Bengals and Browns pulled off the AJ McCarron trade, Colin Kaepernick may be a Bengal right now. We all know at this point that the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns had a trade in place to send AJ McCarron to Cleveland, but it fell through. According to Chris Simms of Bleacher Report the trade following through also ended the Bengals possibly making one of the loudest moves in the NFL. He says the Bengals had plans to bring in Colin Kaepernick after McCarron was traded. This is of course according to unnamed sources in the NFL, but Simms brings up some good points. The...

Red Zone Play: Why Not Kaepernick?

Red Zone Play: Why Not Kaepernick?

Bob McNair lost the team when he made his prison/inmates comments, whether they were taken out of context or not. O’Brien lost the offense when Deshaun Watson went down in practice – possibly as a result of an uncalled illegal hit on the quarterback last week. Vrabel lost the defense when J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus went down with season ending back-to-back injuries. So, at this point, the question becomes what else is there to lose? Colin Kaepernick, who hangs around NFL stories like the ghost of Tim Tebow, had his best years when playing in an offense that utilized the high...

Host of Broncos' problems fall back on poor coaching

Host of Broncos' problems fall back on poor coaching

Yes, the players play the game, but a host of the Broncos’ problems are the result of poor coaching. Denver gave Trevor Siemian seven games under center, including a five-game stretch in which he scored just two touchdowns and turned the ball over nine times. Siemian’s obviously not the only problem — Brock Osweiler proved that against the Eagles — but he wasn’t the solution. Instead of signing a free agent like Colin Kaepernick or trading for someone like Tyrod Taylor, the Broncos stuck with Siemian until dropping to 3-4. Now the trade deadline has passed and the season is all but...
