    I think that there's too much money involved for there not to be a season. What would the owners need to pay back to the networks if there was no season?

    And that right there is what pisses me off, Brees is a very good person and look at all the money and things he has done to better New Orleans which has lots of minority community. This is a free country and we have freedom of speech which is all he did.....gave his view on kneeling which he didnt completely agree with so now everyone is up in arms to get him. His statement today is basically admitting he got railroaded hard and extremely pressured into back tracking a statement that was not ment to hurt anyone.

    You and I may not agree on everything and that's fine but to a point we both have a right to our opinions and that should be respected, something not being done right now with the media and stuff.

    That essay fits Kaepernick like a glove.

    Well said!
    Interesting how freedom of speech applies to some....but not others.

    Being from a non-football powerhouse college, being the size he is.....and yet having his success through hard work and talent.....he has earned the right to speak freely. Without running it past a group of PC police. I doubt he has a mean bone in his body.....competitive? Yes!......so it's sad to see the pressure applied to him like that.

    I think his very generous gifts he has done over the years is even more important, thou if he plans on playing another year better tow the line or expect so very cheap shots.

    Kinda like how you can have a company that promotes open mindedness and opinions but when you read the emails the CEO sends out you know theres only 1 side being accepted.

    Freedom of speech applies to everyone in the US. However, you can and will be judged and critiqued by your peers for the things that you say and the stances that you take.

    A case in point, the NFL backed off i's stand and said that they were wrong for their stance on Colin Kaepernick's form of peaceful protest.

    The talent is there to make a good run, McCarthy is kind of a wild card because unless he has changed its vanilla style calls.

    Has to be an improvement over Garrett. I can't see how it wouldn't be.

    I think he will be, maybe not first year but might be surprised. The biggest issue he had here was his play calling relied on the player beating his opponent so lose talented players and his schemes fail.

    What a coincidence, Cam (Newton) is short for Camera.
