Retired NFL lineman Geoff Schwartz celebrates the week’s most disrespectful blocks. This week, we’ve got the Titans helping themselves to slabs of ribs, Washington’s OL, and some receivers in on the fun!
Many of the posts he shared on Wednesday were aimed at NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who addressed the media at the league’s owners meetings in New York. Goodell spoke at length about the national anthem protests, a movement that Kaepernick started last season as a member of the 49ers, saying he wants — but is not mandating — all players to stand for the song, saying he aims to put the number of protesters “at zero.”
“Goodell and his avoidance of police killing unarmed black and brown people is an extension of the coopting/erasure of Kaepernick’s cause,” came a tweet from @LeftSentThis, endorsed by Kaepernick.
Darnold has made some questionable decisions throwing the football this season (nine INTs ties his total from last season), but it hasn’t changed my evaluation of him. He simply makes plays when it matters, as seen again against Utah in the second half. His delivery still needs to be cleaned up, but his accuracy is phenomenal. He is the most complete quarterback in college football and a potential franchise signal-caller.
Barkley hasn’t played against terrific competition, but he looks like the best running back in the nation this season. With good balance and terrific lateral agility, he can run away from the defense when he gets to the second level. He did it all against Iowa in Week 4, willing Penn State to a 21-19 win to keep the team undefeated. He has a big matchup this weekend against a stout Michigan defense.
