  1. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001077164/article/nfl-releases-statement-on-change-to-colin-kaepernick-workout NFL releases statement on change to Colin Kaepernick workout NFL.com Published: Nov. 16, 2019 at 05:02 p.m. 0 Likes | 0 Comments Editor's note: The NFL put out the following statement Saturday afternoon after Colin Kaepernick's workout was moved from the Atlanta Falcons' training facility to a new location. We are disappointed that Colin did not appear for his workout. He informed us of that decision at 2:30 p.m. today along with the public. Today's session was designed to give Colin what he has consistently said he wants -- an opportunity to show his football readiness and desire to return to the NFL. Twenty-five (25) clubs were present for the workout, and all 32 clubs, their head coaches, general managers, and other personnel executives would have received video footage of the interview and workout, shot by the Atlanta Falcons video crew. It is important to note the following: » As stated above, more than three-fourths of NFL clubs were present for today's workout. » The NFL made considerable effort to work cooperatively with Colin's representatives. We invited his agent to suggest questions for the interview. Yesterday, when Colin's representatives said he wanted to bring his own receivers to the workout, we agreed to the request. In addition, Coach Hue Jackson discussed with Colin's agent what drills would be run at the workout so that Colin would know what would be expected of him. » Last night, when Nike, with Colin's approval, requested to shoot an ad featuring Colin and mentioning all the NFL teams present at the workout, we agreed to the request. » On Wednesday, we sent Colin's representatives a standard liability waiver based on the waiver used by National Invitational Camp at all NFL Combines and by NFL clubs when trying out free agent players. At noon today, Colin's representatives sent a completely rewritten and insufficient waiver. » We heard for the first time last night, around the same time we heard from Nike, that Colin wanted to bring his own video crew. We heard for the first time this afternoon that Colin wanted to open the event to all media. » We agreed to have Colin's representatives on the field while the workout was being conducted and to allow them to see how it was being recorded. We did so even though we have been clear from the beginning that this is private workout. As is typical with NFL Combines, one video crew was prepared to shoot and distribute video of the interview and workout. We confirmed with Colin's representatives that they would receive both the video that would be sent to all 32 clubs as well as the raw footage from the entire event, which is unprecedented. The location Colin selected is more than an hour away from Flowery Branch. We are grateful to the Falcons, who made available the club's first-class facility, along with athletic training, equipment, and communications staff to ensure that today's workout would occur under ideal conditions, to coaches Hue Jackson and Joe Philbin, who were prepared to run a workout that would allow Colin to demonstrate his skill level, and to Jeff Foster and the Combine staff for arranging for other players to participate and for managing the logistics of the workout. Colin's decision has no effect on his status in the League. He remains an unrestricted free agent eligible to sign with any club.
  2. Wont top the Baylor Oilers. Meanwhile, USC with the int and then give it back fumbled return.
  3. USC with the turnover shish kabob.
  4. Some may need to carefully reread what he wrote, or just ignore the thread if you are an Aspy.
  5. It appears that Houston has annexed Waco.
  6. I highly doubt Urban wants to move to Norman, OK. He made his name at Utah, jumped to Florida to win titles, and then went to OSU because it was the state that he and his wife were born and raised in. He's got the easy life on TV in LA or at game sites. Notre Dame and USC are probably at the top of his list. Maybe Miami or FSU if his wife really likes the beach, Texas and UGA might be options if he's looking for easy to recruit bluebloods in highly desirable places to live, and perhaps UCLA for the latter. 90% chance he's going to USC or the NFL if he gets back into coaching. Why on earth would a coach who has won titles in 2 different programs choose Norman, OK over LA?
  7. Squib kick was stupid.
  8. It is the fault of the one's choosing not to use their brains, the ones that didn't properly mentally prepare. Way too many mental mistakes and lack of discipline. Yes, a lot of that are coaching failures, and I agree that staff changes are necessary.
  9. Looks like he was moving both arms and legs some before they told him to be still.
  10. Lulz, I'm out of rep but Petros Paprikadonkus does have a smoker's laugh.
  11. These Cal Bay Packers look a lot like San Jose State.
  12. I'm not sure his judgment in recruitment of QB's is sufficient for our goals. There is no obvious slam dunk option out there right now. That said, let's see what Rhule does the rest of the season. Finish 10-2 and play within 10 of OU in the CCG (the crooked Bowlsby refs are going to insure OU gets into the playoffs) would be a good enough turnaround job in 2 years to probably convince me that he's the real deal.
  13. We're going to get screwed by the refs in whatever conference we moved to, but at least it wouldn't be to the exclusive benefit of a single team. Bama is atop the SEC favoritism totem pole, but they'll also spread that around to FL, LSU, UGA, Auburn, and any other undefeated/playoff eligible team. B1G will favor Ohio St, Mich, Penn St, and any other undefeated/playoff eligible team. Let the dirty Sooners go to the dirty SEC, their ceiling will be a minimum of 2-3 losses when they no longer are being bailed out and propped up by the conference refs. Screw OU, we can play them OOC again, just like we did throughout most of the history. And it will impact their recruiting, too. We'd hold our own in the B1G, Pac, ACC, or even the SEC. Get down to 4 power conferences and they will almost certainly expand the playoffs to 8 with a new format. Which probably increases our odds of making the tournament. And we aren't anything close to similar to A&M. Comparing apples & eggplants.
  14. I agree that it is time for CDC to get with the other schools and give Bowlsby an ultimatum: Fix the inept/corrupt officiating or be fired. I've been thinking the officiating is just inept and the game too fast for an eyes on the field approach that still only has a limited use of tv cams for the officiating. But gotdam if OU doesn't benefit an inexplicable amount of the calls (and blatant non-calls, like last week.) Seems to happen way too often to be just statistical chance. Is Bowlsby trying to max revenues by trying to get OU into the playoffs? I was kidding when I joked about it, but has OU privately threatened to leave? Whatever the reason, this is inexcusable. I don't care that we might get the same Jordan Rules treatment if our program was back where it was. There no excuse for NBA type officiating.
