Unpatriotic Kneel Down/Fist Up

Normally, I try to keep my blogs biased free, but this next article is like something you’d find in the Opinion section of a newspaper. Again, this is my opinion, and you don’t necessarily have to agree with it, though I’m sure it’s going to make some people mad. On to the juicy stuff now. Collin Kaepernick, in my opinion, has acted really low as of late. Yeah, you have a right to protest, but during the National Anthem? That’s pure outrageous and plain disrespectful to everyone who has ever fought to defend our freedom and country. Now not only Kaepernick is protesting during the National Anthem, but players from other NFL teams (Rams, Dolphins, and  Broncos) are showing protest as well…Niner’s DB Eric Reid and Broncos’ LB Brandon Marshall, and Dolphins’ RB Arian Foster are just to name a few. Now, some players aren’t just kneeling, but putting their fists in the air instead of their hand over their heart.  In my other opinion, if these players don’t like standing during the Anthem, then they can move to Canada and play for the CFL. Or let’s get these players together and let former and current military veterans beat the crap out of them for showing so much disrespect to not only them but the country we live in, and which they fought for. From now on, these players should just shut their mouths and put their hands over their hearts, and get along with life. I also have 2 shoutouts; my first shoutout is to former Alabama DL Quinton Dial. Dial helped military members hold the flag during last night’s National Anthem…while Eric Reid and Kaepernick kneeled. I also give a shout out to everyone of the Dallas Cowboys sideline the other night as none of their players showed any signs of protest. In conclusion, yeah, you might have a first amendment right to protest; however, it should not be done during an important moment such as the National Anthem. Thank you for the read, and remember this is my opinion only; you may agree to disagree. I, however, will always stand by my opinion.

KC’s 2-0 Stat Goes Fumbling Away

The Chiefs faced off in a matchup with the Denver Broncos tonight at Arrowhead Stadium, and it didn’t end with a bang… KC started off with a 78 yard drive that ended with RB Jamal Charles scoring a TD on a 34 yard run; on the next drive, KC took a 14-0 lead after KC DB Marcus Peters intercepted a pass by Peyton Manning and took it 55 yards for the score. The Broncos would soon get back in the game after a 16 yard pass from Manning to his favorite 3rd down receiver, Emmanuel Sanders. After a fumble by Jamal Charles, Manning found TE Virgil Green in the back of the end zone for a 1 yard TD. At the half, the game was tied at 14 even. During the 3rd quarter, KC took an eventual lead after K Cairo Santos kicked a 35 yard field goal; the Broncos would also capitalize on a 54 yard field goal by K Brandon McManus. Tied at 17, the Chiefs took the lead late in the 4th quarter (with 2:27 to go) after RB Knile Davis found the end zone off an 8 yard carry. It’s 24-17 KC with under 2:30 left. Can the Broncos make a comeback and maybe force the game into OT? Peyton Manning and crew went to work at the 20 yard line. After throwing multiple incomplete passes and converting on 3rd down’s and multiple pass interferences not called or upheld, Manning found his favorite target on 3rd down (yes, Emmanuel Sanders) for 19 yards and a TD with 36 seconds left in regulation. The game is tied again. The Chiefs get the ball back in the hopes of scoring and not going to OT. What happens again? Jamal Charles loses the ball again, which is picked up by Broncos CB Bradley Roby, and returned 21 yards for a TD. When asked about the fumble return for a TD, Roby Said,  “God was on my side; I was lucky!”. Sadly for KC, Peyton Manning picked up his 9th straight win over the Cheifs, and the Broncos are 13-0 on the road. For Jamal Charles, it is the second time in his career (since a 2012 game vs San Diego) that he has had 2 fumbles in one game (according to ESPN.go.com). And with that, KC’s 2-0 start went rolling away…

Peyton Manning Helping Out Families Affected by Chattanooga Shooting

Normally I wouldn’t start out with a narrative, but this time I making it an exception. Never in my life would I thought I’d ever see Chattanooga on national TV for something such as gruesome as an idiot shooting and killing 5 Military officers and wounding a policeman. I can remember seeing an alert on Chatt State’s Facebook page about a shooting in the area had put the school on lockdown. Never in my right mind would I have thought it was at the Naval Center where I used to get my own Military I.D. renewed. 4 brave men lost their lives at that center and my dad had a friend who worked there, but luckily it was his off day and was not killed or injured in the shooting. Never did I know that a tragedy like this would happen in my town, and to have someone start a foundation to the families affected is pretty awesome! Peyton Manning announced, Thursday, that he would be starting the Chattanooga Heroes Fund; the fund offers financial support to families of those who lost a loved one or wounded in the tragedy. For more information on this story, visit the link to 24/7 sports. Manning did visit Chattanooga after the tragedy. The last thing I want to say is #ChattanoogaStrong. You can attack our city, you can attack our recruiting centers, but you WILL NOT BRING US DOWN!

Breaking: Broncos 3rd Round Pick Suffers Torn ACL in Practice

Breaking news out of Denver: 3rd round pick TE Jeff Heuerman suffers a torn ACL in rookie minicamp. During a special teams drill, Heuerman was running full speed down the field and made a cut when his knee gave way; he was carted off the field. This is the second rookie to suffer an ACL injury in 24 hours as Jaguars DE/LB Daunte Fowler Jr. also suffered a torn ACL in yesterday’s rookie minicamp. Head coach of the Broncos, Gary Kubiak, issued a statement following the injury: “I feel terrible for Jeff and this is a very unfortunate situation. Jeff was going to be a bif part of our team this year, and he is still going to be a big part of our team and organization in the near future. He’ll get well and be with us as part of this team throughout his rehabilitation.” Heuerman was drafted number 92 overall in the 3rd round out of Ohio State. With a lot of depth at TE, one wonders who will step up and make an impact this season?
