TBR,

I guess that seemed like two different thoughts but they were connected. I think I would have given Kaepernick a shot. They could use the help and probably don't need someone for a long term. I could see presenting it as "Let's see if you can shut up and play. If you can get your head in the game, we'll help you show your stuff to some other teams...provided you have any to show...and you can fill in while our guy gets healthy". At least that way the fans might have a season. Cutler strikes me as totally washed up.

I don't usually watch the HOF induction, but I did look up LT's speech.

I was at the stadium field level about 10 rows up when he set the season touchdown record. Maybe 20 yards away. One of my best football memories.

That guy is a class act.

10 million?

Not a Dolphin fan, but I'm scratching my head at that signing too. I guess not allot of choices out there when your starter goes down.

What's Favre doing these days?

And three weeks later it's still about Kaepernick. Now a group of fans threatening to boycott the NFL if somebody, anybody, doesn't sign him. Sigh. I have to say I'm not a fan. He always seemed to fancy himself a modern day Ali thrust into a social protest role while at best exhibiting middle of the road talent. For me the overall effect was that he seemed like an unbelievably conceited dufus. Up till a couple of days ago Kaepernick seemed like a pretty simple equation:

Relative talent minus lack of mental focus, minus expected salary, minus persona baggage, equals less than zero.

And then the Dolphins signed Jay Cutler to a one year, ten million dollar deal. Really? Cutler? Seriously?

Any Dolphin fans want to chime in on that choice?

Convicted dog killer and image maven Michael Vick has advised Colin Kaepernick to get a haircut.

"The first thing we've got to get Colin to do is cut his hair." Vick said in an interview, adding, among other things, that "I just think perception and image is everything."

Uh huh. Talent? Not so much.

"The salary cap was the best idea the NFL ever had"

Absolutely!!

I agree.

There is a much bigger risk of serious injury, both short and long term, in football.

They should look for a bigger piece of the pie, and devote some of that money to alleviating that issue.

Have not.

In other news, Richard Sherman is advocating for a strike to allow marquee players to get the big bucks in football same as the MLB and the NBA. Personally I think this is a terrible idea. The salary cap was the best idea the NFL ever had as it led to greater parity among teams and consequently a much larger national audience. If the players want to strike for anything it should be a bigger piece of the pie which should be added to the salary caps.

My two cents worth. Anybody else have a thought on this?

Anyone else watching the Espys Awards (25th anniversary)?

The skit at the "retirement" home was a total hoot
