In sports, during a player injury, mostly all players will take a knee. Kaepernick wasn't taking a knee to be disrespectful to flag or anthem, he just wanted to call needed attention to the fact that innocent African-American (mostly men) lives had (and continue be) taken by the people sworn to protect and serve ALL; not those who happen to look like them. Do people continue to miss the point (injustice) because of racism? "I'm with you. I hate that these guys are able to bring this into the entertainment industry." ...let's face it, Trump has made overt racism chic again
I am a 20-year USAF Cold War veteran, not all service members are offended, we served to protect our freedoms, which can be used illustrate the injustices in our once envious democratic society
You want to post about what really offends service members, Trump demanding & getting a military parade after twice avoiding his opportunity to serve
Let's not forget his clutch 4th quarter drive in the super bowl (his second one) to score the game winning touchdown ( not FG) and one of the all time great passes in NFL history to Manningham to get the Giants out of their own end.
In the playoffs, he's 10-5
253 for 447 (56.60%) / 3223 yards / 25 TD's / 10 TD's / 7.21 ypa / 88.60 passer rating
Overall, the two are virtually the same. The only real difference is that Eli has 1 more Super Bowl. There isn't a single person who thinks Joe Flacco is a H.O.F. candidate. In fact, the Ravens are already replacing him (by drafting Jackson).
But how about the fact that Eli has thrown for over 4000 yards 6 times and passed for more then 25plus tds 7 times.
And Flacco has passed for over 4000 yards once, and 25 plus tds twice.
I don’t see the same Qb, and too me it’s not even close.
Eli will make the HOF and should , Flacco won’t and shouldn’t.
I think he's as good as other backup QB's but not by any huge margin. The distraction he would bring to a team and the locker room isn't worth it though in my opinion.
It is kinda similar to Tim Tebow.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Giants are asking for "at least two first-round picks" in a potential Odell Beckham trade.
By all accounts, the Rams' No. 23 overall pick in next month's draft is on the table in Beckham conversations, but it's unclear if they'd be willing to give up next year's first as well. We doubt it, but the Rams have been uber-aggressive on the trade front this offseason. Bridges are being burned between OBJ and the Giants on a near-daily basis. It's still hard to see the team trading him, but Beckham may be to the point he won't sign an extension with the Giants.
Personally, I think it's a great deal for the Rams if they can get him for two first rounders. Outside of QBs, there are few players in the league who can change the dynamic of an offense the way ODB can... and he's only 25. Yes, he's an injury risk but so is everyone in the NFL these days. Yes, he's a head case but again, he's only 25 and you would think getting traded would sober him up a little? If I'm the Giants, I would want the two first rounders and Robert Woods.
BTW, If the Giants trade Beckham, they're insane if they don't draft a QB with the second pick since they'll basically be in full blown rebuilding mode.
I think it would be a great move for the Rams, and for the Gmen both.
