    I am told that @Kaepernick7 has filed a grievance under the CBA for collusion against the owners. If accurate, this is huge.

    So that's potentially Rodgers and Elliott out for me. And my team was looking good too :(.

    Might have to claim Cutler...

    The Rams returned the opening K/O for a touchdown. The Jags then got a 75yd TD run on their first play. :LOL:

    Hideous punt by the Bears in over-time...
    Bears in all kind of trouble in O/T

    How did Jordan Howard break that tackle?!?!
    Bears still 10-15 yds off FG territory

    2nd rookie ever to score a TD in each of his first six games.

    Most impressive.

    I can't see how he'll win any kind of case. He'd have to prove that the only reason he was not being signed was due to him starting the whole kneeling thing. Pretty much impossible to prove as the owners will just say that it's just because they don't think he's good enough, end of. It'd be one thing if he was Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers but he was a bang average or below QB so it's perfectly believable for the owners to just say they don't rate him. Case dismissed.

    "Below average" would still start for about 10 teams though.

    Wanna know how to ruin any chance you have of ever getting back into the league? This is how. Wow.

    Problem is, some of those teams would rather start their young QB's and see what they have for the future which is very reasonable and smart.

    Yeah but the point isn't whether he's good enough to start for an NFL team, the point is he isn't good enough for it to be completely inconceivable that nobody wants him purely because of the whole "controversy" rather than just not wanting him because he isn't all that great, He'll presumably have to prove the former in order to win a collusion case against the owners.

    Aside from talking about the Raiders shitty offense, what a complete bullshit call that was on AS-J against the Pats!

    There's probably about 80-odd QBs on rosters atm, so what other reason is there that someone who is good enough to start for about a third of the teams not on any team?

    Sad to hear about Kev. He seemed like a really nice guy and was a good host too.
