The first person to do something is a “Maverick” and likely will face harsh criticism for their view. Yet even when the masses start following his lead he will not get the credit or respect. Colin Kaepernick.

Life seems to encourage you to meddle in hypocrisy. Ray Lewis and Kaepernick. When Ray was given the chance he took a knee during the anthem. Michael Flynn and Hillary Clinton. When Flynn also couldn’t be trusted with national security secrets. Politicians. Republicans then to Democrats “Passing legislation through reconciliation is wrong.” Republicans now “We are going to pass tax reform and health care reform through reconciliation.”  How about don’t throw stones when you could be the next to be hit.

Is the NFL preseason a joke? Should it not be used to determine who starts? Deshaun Watson and Tom Savage. Tom Savage won the starting QB job but it appears the better choice was Watson. A report even surfaced that the coach tried to stump Watson via texts about different plays and couldn’t. But he wasn’t ready to start? Coach with no guts? Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson in 2012 shows that the processes can work. Remember Flynn was the money free agent and Wilson was a mid-third round draft pick. Wilson started and lead the team to a ring in 2014. Congrats Pete Carroll for making the football decision and not wait your turn or the one paid plays.

Bold prediction that can’t be right: 2017 Chiefs led by full time starter Alex Smith go to and win the Superbowl and the 2018 starting QB for the Chiefs is Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs don’t make the playoffs.

Prediction that you can’t deny could happen: Next season, QB Alex Smith signs with the Redskins after their former QB, Kirk Cousins, signs with the 49ers and the Skins makes the playoffs while the 49ers don’t even get to .500.

Prediction that makes you think it is a small world: QB Alex Smith signs with the 49ers in 2018 and leads them to the playoffs.

So time for everyone to over react to how every team did in the NFL based on one week. As in Carson Wentz is a hall of famer and the Browns should have drafted him, Patriots can win with any QB, Skins are dead on arrival, etc… Let me just say one guy possibly getting out of bounds doesn’t guarantee the Cowboys win by kicking a 60 plus yard field goal… Tried to buy an Andy Dalton color rush jersey and all sold out sounds to me like the NFL left money on the table for their charity. Just saying if the sales were going to their bottom line more jersey’s would have been available…

So the Baltimore Sun printed a column about if the Ravens don’t succeed this season then get ready for Marc Trestman to be the fall guy. Ultimately they hinted while not fair who else could get the ax because Baltimore will want blood. I guess? First not really positive thinking that your are going to have a good season by writing such a piece before the season even starts. Second they noted while the defensive coordinator got his squad to play better toward the end of the season and has added some real talent for him to work with that he will be safe. How about Ozzie should have given Trestman some real talent to work with so that he would be safe too? Is this Joe’s salary too large so that they can’t spend to give him the help? Is the relying on a 37 year old WR? Is that the great Ozzie blowing up his wide receiver core by replacing Torrey with a broken rookie wide out that never played? … Take the Bengals. Who would be their fall guy? Young wide receiver core not yet ready to play on the big stage? New offensive coordinator not as good as the last one? Injuries sucked the talent out? Maybe? Possibly? Probably? Are these areas of concerns? Yes to the first. Maybe to the second. And Yes to the third. But play the games man and maybe we will win and win and win. … Notre Dame lost. Is their season over? Maybe? Then again Ohio State rallied to the championship with an early season lose a couple of years ago. Got to settle this QB thing or not getting much better. … NFL starts on Thursday. Who is excited? …

The trade for Carson Wentz for the Philadelphia Eagles doesn’t look so bad now that the Eagles were able to trade Sam Bradford to get back a first round pick… Bad news for Houston that Tom Herman may get a large offer to go to a SEC or Big10 School but good news for Houston, Major Applewhite…

2015 – Sunday Funday with Grandpa #4

Thursday night football has Grandpa standing on his head over the craziness of it not being Sunday. Even "Bengal" isn't sure how to help.
