Here are 10 thoughts after watching the Week 3 games from Sunday.
1- The 49ers fans loved their team so much, they decided to lose their composure at the game too. Look at this brawl. What an embarrassment for everyone involved. Is that blood?
As for the game, I am shocked at how undisciplined the 49ers were. Sure, there were a good number of penalties called against the, that I disagreed with, but the bigger issue is the team’s inability to do anything in the second half of their games this season. 52-3. You read that right. After a pretty solid start to the game, the team decided to slow down and just not get anything going. Frank Gore disappeared and I am not sure the secondary can last this season.
They’re better than the Cardinals. But somehow they just couldn’t get their act going. This is a tough spot as they host the Eagles next week. Going 1-3 could seriously jeopardize their changes of making the playoffs.
And can you believe Colin Kaepernick said that?
Now that it’s official, the River Cats have announced their new affiliation with the Giants. Much like last time, the Twitter reaction was not nice and NSFW.
One of my favorite and most respected players of all time. Sucks that he is a Yankee but still, he’s the man.
Does he deserve all this? Sure. But should they be doing all this for him? No. It is overkill of appreciation, even though he was a great player. I am mixed about it. I appreciate him but it is overwhelming.
Mark Jackson has been publicly supporting his wife’s music career since leaving the Warriors. Desiree Coleman Jackson has sung at Warriors games before and she’s talented. She recently dropped a new single and Mark wanted to thank those who bought it.
He wanted to personally thank the people and in doing so, asked them to post their phone numbers publicly on Twitter.
What a crazy season this has been. Ray Rice. Ray McDonald. Adrian Peterson. Greg Hardy. Just saying those names and immediately think about their recent issues off the field. Domestic violence, child abuse, bullying and there are a ton of other players out there with DUIs, drug use and many other crimes.
I am not sure what is going on. I don’t remember this many news hits of NFL players causing trouble when I was a kid. Maybe there were but it wasn’t as public. Or maybe it’s because we live in an age where these common mishaps are just more accessible and easier to expose.
But why are these athletes screwing up? Was it something from their upbringing? Is it the fame and fortune? What is making them act the way they do?
This is iconic. Recreating the 1996 photo shoot is a big deal. Some consider it the greatest rookie class of all time. Some say 1984. Some say 2003. However you view it, the 2014 rookie class is one class that we are all excited to see and I am so excited that such hype has been bestowed upon them.
I don’t know if they will ever reach that kind of high levels of play but just seeing this recreation gave me the chills.
