I am one of 1,600 (players in the Night net). I’ve had a great time doing it, but I will never say, ‘I’m about to do this’ and try and get some adulation. That’s not how I’m wired.

Or it was at least the last straw, as these two had another incident in Week 3 after a loss to the Chiefs. While it's easy for players to pin the blame on Marshall's halftime rant, this paints a larger issue in Todd Bowles' locker room. There's a clear divide among the players, but that's bound to happen when a team is play夜网论坛ing this poorly. Reports from Wednesday night indicate Bowles will be safe from Black Monday, but[......]

Desperate teams have no choice but to find a new quarterback immediately. Needy teams are likely to covet quarterbacks but could punt if they don’t find ideal fits. Seeking teams either wouldn’t mind an upgrade for the long term or are in the market for a backup/developmental passer.This year, as many as four teams are desperate, and all likely will be picking in the top 10.The 49ers might have some optimism with Colin Kaepernick and coach Chip Kelly, but they’ll be intrigued by DeShone Kizer or Deshaun Watson in the draft.
