Chiefs (+1) at Raiders: Somehow the Raiders keep winning games despite fielding the league’s most porous defense. Eventually allowing 27 points and 452 yards a game will catch up to you. They’re winning behind a dominant offensive line and mistake free quarterback.
Embarrassing for everyone directly and indirectly involved. I bothered by the hostility that BOTH teams displayed. That isn what high school sports are about. Kaepernick has used his social media platform, particularly Instagram and Twitter where he has over two million followers, to relay views on race, religion and politics for much of the past year, including prior to his Nov. 2 loss of the 49ers starting quarterback job. Kaepernick, however, has re tweeted others’ posts on those accounts, presumably to convey his similar thoughts..
Time, then, for a radical rethink: if we really must have role models, should we not look to the administrators, the purported adults? Plainly, suggesting even a tiny proportion fit the bill is tantamount to proposing that the next best option is Robert Mugabe (the current No. 1 global dictator, according to Forbes magazine, just ahead of Bashar al Assad).

You never know where you might find a tight end these days: in a backfield, split out wide or in the case of San Diego’s Antonio Gates and Cleveland’s Jordan Cameron on a basketball court. A season ago, six tight ends finished among the league’s top 17 in receptions led by New Orleans’ Jimmy Graham (99 catches) and New England’s Rob Gronkowski (90).

Wednesdays at Carlucci, 1801 Butterfield Road, Downers Grove. No cover. Sunday, Nov.
“I will tell you guys this much,” said Ross Tucker, the panelist moderator who played seven years in the league, “the guy in the news, he got a $12.5 million signing bonus in August. Twelve point five million dollars the most ever for a tight end. He’s 23 years old.
Everybody in this locker room. Everybody in life has made mistakes. When you play in the National Football League, you’re under the microscope and everything you do is micromanaged. Panthers will rightly head into this game as favourites they’ve been the best team in the NFL this season but the play offs are a strange beast. Whether it’s against the Vikings last week or the Packers last year, the Seattle Seahawks just have a knack of finding a way to win and overcoming the odds in the post season. It’s a knack which is hard to overlook.
