  • The 49ers have benched Colin Kaepernick ‚ÄĒ and it looks like he's done in San Francisco

    The Business Insider ^ | 11/3 | Emmett Knowlton
    The 2-6 San Francisco 49ers are benching quarterback Colin Kaepernick and starting Blaine Gabbert this weekend against the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday. Niners head coach Jim Tomsula said earlier on Monday that he was "evaluating everything." Later in the day, Schefter reported that San Francisco had traded veteran tight end Vernon Davis to the Denver Broncos for a 2016 7th-round draft pick and 6th round picks in 2016 and 2017. Kaepernick, who led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and the NFC Championship Game in 2013, is having the worst season of his career. He's thrown...

    San Francisco is known for its Golden Gate Bridge, world class cuisine, panoply of cultures, striking skyline, frigid fog, and homeless. More specifically, aggressive panhandling and homeless defecating and urinating in public. And sometimes doing even worse things. With the holiday shopping season coming, and Super Bowl 50 right behind, the city by the bay will be in the national spotlight once again, and so will images. While Mayor Ed Lee announced this week that "the homeless must leave the street" for Super Bowl 50, it's more what they leave behind on the street that is a concern for the...

    There can no longer be any doubt ó ďDeflategateĒ is not about football. It is about a national affliction ó one of the seven deadly sins: Envy. ďEnvy: the feeling of wanting to have what someone else has.Ē Exactly. And itís made unhinged haters out of a lot of you outside New England. Tom Brady took a helicopter to Salem State University. ďArrogant!Ē detractors from across the country shouted.

    Unlike the 2014 Little League World Series champs, who lost their trophy because they fielded ineligible players, the New England Patriots are not going to lose their Super Bowl rings over Deflategate. But it will be instructive to see the public reaction over the National Football Leagueís announced four-game suspension on Monday of Patriot quarterback Tom Brady over the deflating of footballs at the AFC championship game. Amid growing evidence, he couldnít plausibly scramble his way out of his previous contention that he knew nothing about the incident in the Patriotsí 45-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC...

    An N.F.L. investigation has found that ďit is more probable than notĒ that New England Patriots personnel intentionally deflated footballs to gain an advantage in the A.F.C. championship game last season, and that Tom Brady, the Super Bowl most valuable player, was probably aware of it. No penalties have been announced. The long-awaited report into so-called deflategate, released on Wednesday, concluded that it was probable that Patriots personnel were ďinvolved in a deliberate effort to circumvent the rules.Ē The report said that Jim McNally, a locker room attendant, and John Jastremski, an equipment assistant, released air from the footballs.

    Weeks after the New England Patriotsí Super Bowl victory the DeflateGate scandal continues to rumble on in the background. According to ESPNís Outside the Lines, a Patriots locker room attendant attempted to introduce an unapproved special teams ball into the AFC Championship game. The attendant, identified by ESPN as Jim McNally, is said to have been in charge of the officialsí locker room at Gilette Stadium since 2008. He is alleged to have handed a ball, which wasnít officially approved for kick-offs, field goals and punts to an official during the first-half of the Patriotsí 45-7 victory over the Colts.

    BOSTON (CBS) ó You may have noticed that Tom Brady didnít look himself at Tuesdayís Media Day. No, it wasnít his bed head. And it wasnít from a lack of sleep thanks to an early morning fire alarm at the teamís hotel. As he prepares for the biggest game of the season, the Patriots quarterback is battling a cold. And if you thought he looked rough on Tuesday, he looked a bit worse on Wednesday as he addressed the media at the team hotel in Chandler, Arizona. ďItís been lingering,Ē Brady told reporters as he held court for nearly 45...

    A few years ago the NFL discovered female fans. Now, apparently, the league has discovered that gays also enjoy watching men in tight pants jump on top of one another. Because in what is believed to be a first, an LGBT publication has received a credential to cover the Super Bowl. Outsports writer Cyd Zeigler is headed to Arizona today to cover the big game ó and he gets a seat in the press box. Unfortunately, Cyd missed yesterdayís Media Day circus and the chance to ask Tom Brady questions like, ďWhere is Gisele?Ē (Answer: ďHome with the kids.Ē)

    Deflategate has taken another twist. FOX Sports has learned that the NFL has zeroed in on a New England Patriots locker-room attendant in connection with the scandal of improperly inflated footballs used in the AFC championship game against Indianapolis. The person of interest was already interviewed by the league. The NFL is trying to determine whether any wrongdoing by this individual occurred, sources tell FOX Sports. There is surveillance video showing the attendant taking the footballs from the official's locker room into another room at Gillette Stadium before bringing them out to the field, sources tell FOX Sports.

    But what has the NFL really found? As one league source has explained it to PFT, the football intercepted by Colts linebacker DíQwell Jackson was roughly two pounds under the 12.5 PSI minimum. The other 10 balls that reportedly were two pounds under may have been, as the source explained it, closer to one pound below 12.5 PSI.

    In the year of Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy, they've somehow managed to trump serious cases of domestic abuse by blowing a silly, inane, moronic controversy over the inflation of game balls into a national story that gets more sublime and ridiculous by the day. The league didn't take their time and do due diligence on what really mattered in the Ray Rice case, and delivered a hasty judgment that Commissioner Roger Goodell admitted was ill-conceived. Now, they're taking their sweet time to decide who may have taken too much air out of the balls, a violation that...

    ...One can clearly see the Patriots, visually, are off the chart. There is no other team even close to being near to their rate of 187 offensive plays per fumble lost. The league average is 105 plays per fumble lost. Most teams are within 21 plays of that number. I spoke with a data scientist whom I know from work on NFLproject.com and sent him the data. He said: Based on the assumption that fumbles per play follow a normal distribution, youíd expect to see, according to random fluctuation, the results that the Patriots have gotten over this period, once...
