NFC Championship - San Francisco 49ers v Atlanta Falcons

 

 

The NFL’s new Free Agency negotiating window weekend has begun and the Kansas City Chiefs kicked off the action by reportedly agreeing to a 3-year deal with veteran cornerback Dunta Robinson.

The 31-year old Robinson was cut by the Atlanta Falcons earlier this off-season, and was halfway through a six-year $57M deal. He began his career by playing 6 seasons with the Houstan Texans. Robinson played all 16 games last season for the Falcons, finishing with one interception, one forced fumble and 67 tackles.

With only about $8 million to spend in free agency, the New York Jets will take a ‘cost friendly approach’ to create competition for incumbent Mark Sanchez at the Quarterback position.

The New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta reports former Jacksonville Jaguar David Garrard, who worked out the Jets facility last week, and Brady Quinn are on General Manager John Idzik’s radar.

Quinn started eight games for the Kansas City Chiefs last season. The former Notre Dame star threw for 1,141 yards, two touchdowns and eight interceptions for a QB rating of 60.1.

NFC Championship - San Francisco 49ers v Atlanta Falcons

Remember when San Francisco 49ers’ QB Alex Smith got injured earlier last season and a young and mobile upstart named Colin Kaepernick stepped in to lead them to the Super Bowl?

You don’t remember that? Really? It was a pretty big story…well anyway, it looks like we’re about to see the end of the 49ers’ quarterback saga.

On Saturday, Jovan Belcher, an inside linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, shot and killed his 22-year-old girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins. He then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide, shooting himself in the head in front of head coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli. Sadly, there is another element to the tragedy. Belcher and Perkins leave behind a three-month-old daughter named Zoey, who was being looked after by Belcher’s mother in the same house where the first shooting occurred.

The initial reaction to this news was to feel anger and rage that someone would steal life from another, and then take their own, avoiding consequence at the hands of others and abandoning another human whose caretaking was their natural responsibility. Then, a brief moment of consideration revealed that there is never a simple explanation to the motivation behind any of our actions, least of all the most heinous. That isn’t meant to excuse what Belcher did, only to state that such heart-rending happenings leave little room for our own poorly-informed judgment.

YOLO

The above is my favorite gif of all time. Tamba Hali’s lack of dancing effort will live on for decades to come.

Matt Cassel –inserted back into the starter’s role due to Brady Quinn’s concussion– threw an interception to seal another loss for his band of sorry misfits on Monday night. On Tuesday, Quinn indicated he had been cleared to play against Cincinnati this Sunday. In a twist of fate he wasn’t cleared at all, at least according to Romeo Crennel.

The confusion defines Kansas City. A football team run into the ground by a Belichick disciple turned power mad insane person Scott Pioli and Crennel, the most absent-minded head coach in the NFL.

Mike Florio outlines the possible explanations for such idiocy:

There’s also a chance that Quinn is in the doghouse for:  (1) not telling the team he had suffered a concussion last month against the Raiders; and (2) telling reporters that he played with a concussion, which triggered more bad P.R. for the team that currently is arguing with the Jags over which one is the worst team in the league.

Neither Quinn or Cassel should see fantasy starting lineups for the rest of the season/forever. On the other hand, grab the Bengals D/ST while you still can. They’re in for a field day.

Often there’s nothing immediate about the running game. Sometimes there is, and sometimes there’s a burst early in the first quarter. A 40-yard run brings roars, spilled beer, and warm embraces between strangers. All is peaceful and perfect.

But more often it’s a process. A fighting, grinding process. Last night Chiefs offensive coordinator Brian Daboll was a willing participant in that process, a week after he really, really wasn’t, and Jamaal Charles received only five carries.

Fantasy owners are grateful, Brian.
