Richard Sherman is showing his value as a ‘coach’

Richard Sherman is showing his value as a ‘coach’

Sherman can’t practice but he is very interactive and involved at OTA practice. San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman isn’t able to participate on the field during OTAs as a precaution taken by the team with his recovery from a torn Achilles last November. That hasn’t kept him from being very involved with the team as a coach and mentor. He was very involved in drills as well as coaching up the secondary in 11-on-11s. Here’s more of @RSherman_25 working with the secondary during #49ers OTA drills. He was very involved during the entire practice offering positive feedback...

The Best Decision the Bears Have Made

The Best Decision the Bears Have Made

Virginia McCaskey has made a number of interesting decisions regarding the Bears, but one decision stands out as an act of class and foresight. Virginia McCaskey and I probably do not agree on many things. She is a woman of a different generation, for one thing, and her take on life is bound to be shaped by that. Some of the football decisions she has made or empowered are perplexing to me. For example, I have no confidence in my ability to see eye-to-eye with the owner of an organization that has said “let’s give Phil Emery a shot” followed by “why not hire Ryan Pace?” However,...

Colbert: ‘[Jimmy Garoppolo]’s going to be the greatest quarterback that ever played.’

I love that Colbert rocked a Jimmy G jersey at the game. The Golden State Warriors lost a tough one to the Houston Rockets Wednesday, and a few members of the San Francisco 49ers were on hand. Ahkello Witherspoon, Adrian Colbert, and Chanceller James drove up the Bay to check out the game after the team wrapped up day two of OTAs. While there, 95.7 The Game had someone on hand to ask them a few questions. The interview as a whole is really entertaining, but my favorite line was about Jimmy Garoppolo. “Jimmy G, we out here, man. We locker mates. That’s my dawg. I support him 100 percent....

Should the Vikings be “in” on Richie Incognito?

While the talent may be an upgrade, there are other factors On Monday, the word came out that the Buffalo Bills were going to be releasing Pro Bowl guard Richie Incognito. As Incognito is an offensive lineman with a pulse, he immediately began drawing interest from Minnesota Vikings fans around social media. While the immediate inclination would be that the Vikings should absolutely be in pursuit of Incognito to fill their hole at guard, there are a couple of pretty solid reasons to hit the brakes on that idea. First off, Incognito isn’t going to come cheap. The Vikings have about $15...

Rico Gathers confirms he was cleared from concussion after Week 7, says Cowboys left him on IR

Oh Rico, where art thou? 2017 was a season of mystery and confusion for the Dallas Cowboys. There are plenty of reasons to choose why. Whatever your flavor is, you no doubt acknowledge that the way Dallas handled tight end Rico Gathers was confusing. The second-year former Baylor basketball player showed an ability to contribute in the redzone during last year’s preseason. People were ready to believe, until Rico suffered a concussion before the season ever began. Dallas put Gathers on injured reserve when they finalized their 53-man roster, and he never left.
