    Duh. We all know it will turn into the Starship Troopers version of football.

    They could always just ditch all those damn pads, including the helmet.

    I played rugby for four years in college and never rang my bell once. It can happen of course but nowhere near as much when you can't launch yourself like a missile at your opponent.

    People are less inclined to launch themselves like missiles when not under 12 lbs of pads.

    I guess, I don't know. He's got two years of his contract left.

    On the one hand, perhaps, on the other, he's not going to get a huge payday for at least another year or two, thanks to the current CBA limiting the amounts rookies get paid (only the likes of Luck, RGIII, and Cam Newton get anywhere close to even a $20 million rookie contract), so I guess he figures he has to make some big money somewhere while waiting to get the big contract.

    Did anyone even read the article? He's not trademarking the pose. He's trademarking 'Kaepernicking' as a word/term, which makes sense to me since it's his name and he's entitled to have some protection over how it's used.

    I totally didn't read the article, and will now think of "Kaepernicking" as not reading an article and still commenting on it.

    No it doesn't. It's utterly silly. And it's not something anyone will say or care about in a few months, it's just a little fad.

    I think New Orleans is a great landing spot for Coach Crennel. I hope he wins there too- even though he didn't work out in KC, I really hope he gets the other bookend on a successful career. Mangini also being considered, it sounds like.

    Per ESPN, Jeff Saturday is retiring. Anyone see him as a Hall of Famer? Dermontii Dawson had more "All-Pro" seasons and got elected, but I think Saturday was very valuable on one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history. Who knows.

    I don't know... Last year without Peyton and the fact he and Rodgers didn't seem (to me at least) to click when he was in Green Bay may hurt a potential HOF candidacy.

    That said, I'm sorry to hear he's retiring. He does seem like a nice guy.

    Peyton makes everyone around him better. Thumbs down to Saturday.

    Saturday better not get in before Dawson. To be honest, I think that Saturday's a Hall of Very Good, not a Hall of Fame, player.

    I just noticed now that Tom Brady will not play in the pro bowl because of an undisclosed injury. Riiiiight!
