    The NFL is set to celebrate the LGBTQ community’s “National Coming Out Day” during its Sunday Night Football broadcast this weekend. The campaign, labeled “It Takes All Of Us,” will feature a 30-second video starring openly gay or bisexual NFL players including Ryan O’Callaghan, Jeff Rohrer, R.K. Russell, and Wade Davis. The ad encourages gays to come out and be proud of their sexual proclivities, according to CNN. The video starts with the aforementioned players saying, “To all current players who are thinking of coming out, when you are ready, so are we.” The ad then segues to other players...

    Jay Cutler is receiving backlash on social media after posting a series of photos to his Instagram with a bull elk he was able to harvest during a recent hunt. The former NFL quarterback posted the photos last week from his New Mexico elk hunt. “It’s a wrap in NM. Amazing hunt. Short but sweet,” he wrote in the caption of the photo posted on Thursday. Jay did receive some love from the likes of elk hunting legend, Cameron Hanes, along with a handful of former teammates. Former Chicago Bears tight end Zack Miller commented “Pew pew!! Or was it...

    “Good morning,” Tom said. “I’ve been thinking about what you said. Our conversation.” Tom and I had met years ago at a college camp though he likely hadn’t remembered. He was a coach from an elite college and my older child attended his sports camp. We knew a lot of the same pros and players. And now, both of our younger children were in competitions together. This particular weekend we were settling in on a beautiful crisp morning near the water, the breeze cool on the skin. Tom came over soon after I arrived, because he wanted to share something...

    [snip] Some of the team plans seemed more haphazard than Week One’s careful coordination. The Tennessee Titans were in the middle of pre-game warmups when the song started, causing the team to rush to the sidelines. Titans linebacker Rashaan Evans, safety Kenny Vaccaro, and defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney took a knee, while defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons held his right fist in the air. Titans left guard Rodger Saffold knelt with center Ben Jones with his right hand on Saffold’s back. Right guard Nate Davis took a knee, as right tackle Dennis Kelly’s rested his left hand on Davis’ right shoulder....

    It all seems par for the course for Cleveland. Baker Mayfield bounced back from a rough first week to lead the Cleveland Browns over the Joe Burrow-led Cincinnati Bengals, 35-30, on Thursday night. And approximately 6,000 fans were fortunate enough to watch in person when Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced earlier this month that 6,000 could attend despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The Browns (1-1) prepared fans with a detailed video on their website that delved into social distancing and safety protocols for FirstEnergy Stadium. Everyone attending had to sign a “health promise” and had specific entry times and locations. There...
  • First NFL coach to be fired? After Week 1, Vegas is looking at Jets’ Adam Gase.

    After the first week of the NFL season, New York Jets Coach Adam Gase has managed to move into first place. Unfortunately for him, it’s not in the AFC East standings — but rather in the betting odds on the first NFL head coach to be fired. Or, as gambling website Bovada lists it in a semantic device that accounts for coaches possibly being allowed to step down from their jobs to save face, Gase now stands atop the field in the category of “First coach to permanently leave his post.”

    Not bad for the worst team in the NFL. Panned, picked apart, ridiculed and accused of tanking for the top pick in next year’s NFL draft, the Jaguars made the only statement that mattered Sunday. They’re 1-0.

    The NFL is preparing to end the use of military honor guards to present the American flag ahead of the national anthem, according to reports. A league source claims that the policy benching military, federal, and police guards is part of its COVID-19 response, according to Front Office Sports. * * * It appears that there will be no flags on the field and the flag will only appear on electronic scoreboards during the playing of the national anthem, at least for the beginning of the season.

    Colin Kaepernick abruptly canceled the workout the NFL scheduled for him Saturday, and instead worked out at a local Atlanta high school wearing a shirt comparing himself to a slave. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has not played since the end of the 2016 season, the same season he began protesting against the country as the national anthem played. But his exclusion from pro football has been a focus of attention as supporters claim he has been “blackballed” from the league for his extreme, left-wing activism.

    The New England Patriots were reportedly unaware that Antonio Brown was facing sexual assault and rape accusations when the team signed him last week, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. With Brown’s signing announced and the star wideout scheduled to begin practice with the team on Wednesday, the Patriots are now deciding how to proceed. The team released a statement late Tuesday night confirming it is aware of the lawsuit and that the NFL will be investigating the matter.

But then there was rhythm and blues superstar Gladys Knight, the empress of soul, and her stellar performance of our national anthem at Super Bowl 2019.  It brought tears to my eyes.  I salute Ms. Knight for courageously rejecting pressure from leftists to boycott the event.  She went one better than that because she gave it her all.

    The Super Bowl memes and whatnot are going to be stale by next Saturday, so a special edition is clearly called for. I rather like a good defensive struggle, and wasn’t bothered a bit by the low scoring. But that’s traditional conservatism speaking, the kind that always favored crew-cut Johnny Unitas over the Broadway Joe Namath.More at the source!

You don’t think some people would have — I’m not saying I wish it would have happened, but I’m just saying I betcha there are some. Calling it a throwback game because it featured defense. That was not a throwback game. That was just — ah, folks, that was just a quarterback for the Rams not ready for the stage is what that was and maybe an offensive game plan,...
