The funny thing is the liberal espn media has been trying to say he looks terrible at practice. By some idiot girl reporting for ESPN at their training camp saying that he looks horrible  with zero evidence  or knowledge of football  to back her facts up because espn is trying to push Baltimore to sign Colleen Kapernick.

Harbaugh even mentioned no one is writing about his good days.

Now that you put it that way I 100% agree. Others may think it's stupid but espn has a huge political agenda and kaep was their rockstar in that sense. Even though he sucks.

Im glad he's hitting that wheel route out of the backfield. I'm not worried about down the field with M - he's got long ball touch, it's the short passes that take more finesse. The article said he hit the RB in stride out of the backfield....awesome he is developing that 'touch' pass.

Cannon arm, lots of talent - with the best for him

The media is definitely working to keep Kap in the headlines.  I was also pretty surprised that such a big deal was made of Mallett's bad day in practice.  Who knows...

I think it has nothing to do with E$PNs possible political stance.  I think it has everything to do with E$PNs fiscal stance from a team signing a player everyone will watch (in their opinion) becuase everyone has an opinion on him (some love, most hate).

Oh, there's quite possibly a political slant to their coverage. 

In fact it's likely the case.

As long as you realize their perceived political stance is really only about $$$ as well.

Wait, implying that ESPN is politically biased is a conspiracy theory? I guess it's probably racist, homophobic, nationalistic, xenophobic and preached from the altar of white privilege, too. ESPN is clearly supportive of Kap, and that's fine.  I hope Mallet gets more than a couple of games to see what he can do.

Mallett wears the number 15.

15 is the numeric way to spell "is"

Bill Clinton asked what the definition of 'is' is. Clearly, he was asking what the definition of Mallett is.

Brady is a hardcore Trumpie. ESPN has been pro Brady and anti-Mallett.

Therefore, the nearly decade long character assassination of Mallett while making Brady out to be the victim of unfair attacks all this time was really subliminal messaging to get Trump elected!

Forget the russians, Disney/ESPN is who we really need to investigate collusion with!

ESPN was all over Brady about Trump until Brady backed off his comments saying he didn't  know who he would vote for.

ESPN is all about pushing their political point of view. However I do agree with you that in this Mallett situation has nothing to do with politics

I did think the Mallett hit piece from a week or so ago seemed a bit unhinged.  If the stats reported are true it was certainly a bad day for any QB.  But there seemed to be a bit of emotionalism in that story and I think that's why everyone thinks it's part of a conspiracy or something. 

If Mallett can see the field then he's where he needs to be.  But Baltimore seems a bit of a dumpster fire.  I wouldn't mind to see him head elsewhere.

I lived in Bmore for a few years - it's a little rough (like most big cities)...but on the other hand Mallett is a little 'rough' around the edges. This may be a good match if Flacco ends up w serious back issues. Medical issues are what ended Romo's career-- back is a serious situation...Flacco may never be the same

Medical issues are Jerry Jones is a manipulative old egomaniac who didn't want to take the chance that Tony might go to Houston and have a better season than Prescott and the Cowboys, so he refused to release him long enough to force everyone's hand...that is what ended Romo's career.

Fixt it for ya.

I sure as heck got that impression watching the coach talk about it, just the sense of worry.

Disk in the back, tricky, tricky. The best Flacco can do is rest until he feels it's 100%, then see how it does first time he's hit again.  Mallett may well have a chance to play his way into the lead spot for good this year.

That's fine to think that, but Jerry made his choice.  He should have released Romo and let him make his.  Sadly, Jerry's ego wouldn't allow that to happen.  Ending a player's career was preferable to chancing being second guessed.

Clearly people only see what they want to see.  The NFL contributes a ratings drop to (far left agendas) by certain players and ESPN somehow thinks it's going to get a ratings boost from those same players.  It's not always about $$$ when there is an agenda to start with and Disney has an agenda.

Romo could have still retired if Jerry had released him.  Every report at the time said Jerry and Tony had agreed the Cowboys would cut him.  Every report indicated Romo wanted to play and that Houston was especially attractive because it was right down the road from his home.

Then, Houston traded Osweiler...leaving them without a starting QB and opening a spot for Tony.  Jerry saw that and suddenly decided there would be no release.  He was going to work a trade for Romo.

You don't have to be the Amazing Kreskin to see what really happened.  Jerry didn't want Romo, who according to media reports looked amazingly good not only on his final drive against the Eagles but during the final weeks of the season in practice, going to the other Texas team and having a great season or two.

So Jerry, being the selfish and manipulative old you know what that he is, had his cake and ate it, too.  He got the QB he chose and he ended the career of the other QB by holding onto his contract and rights long enough to force other teams to make alternative plans.  He also forced Romo to either take the TV gig or spend another year sitting the bench in Dallas.

He was fully healed last November.  No, at his age he is not going to sit out a year and then come back.  He wanted to play this year, not next year.  Jerry ended that because it didn't fit his agenda or ego.

Jerry handled the situation the same way the niners handled Montana and Young. Everybody knew that Montana would be cut by the niners. There was minimal incentive to trade for him. However, eventually a team gets desperate (Kansas in that case) and gives up a 6th or 7th round pick type of deal so that they don't have to get into a bidding war or risk not being chosen. However, the big difference here was that Romo had an injury history and a pretty serious one at that. Elway commented that Romo was not 100% dedicated to winning a super bowl and turns out, Elway was correct. Romo didn't need the money. Continuing to play would have solely been for legacy and he decided his future health was more important than his name being on a sheet of paper or a website.

Jerry handled the situation the same way the niners handled Montana and Young. Everybody knew that Montana would be cut by the niners. There was minimal incentive to trade for him. However, eventually a team gets desperate (Kansas in that case) and gives up a 6th or 7th round pick type of deal so that they don't have to get into a bidding war or risk not being chosen. However, the big difference here was that Romo had an injury history and a pretty serious one at that. Elway commented that Romo was not 100% dedicated to winning a super bowl and turns out, Elway was correct. Romo didn't need the money. Continuing to play would have solely been for legacy and he decided his future health was more important than his name being on a sheet of paper or a website.

I think it has nothing to do with E$PNs possible political stance.  I think it has everything to do with E$PNs fiscal stance from a team signing a player everyone will watch (in their opinion) becuase everyone has an opinion on him (some love, most hate).

Both. Their fiscal stance IS to take a political stance. The next generation isn't watching sports (in general) and isn't signing up for cable. That's the future market they have to stroke. It's the same market that Disney has to cultivate. Thirty year olds are the demographic that buys princess movie DVDs and clothes and movie tickets -- aging baby boomers do not except for the grand kids (and with the 30 year olds' permission). Disney and ESPN don't have political beliefs. They have political stances that they take to drive profit.

Short term, the media will all try to stir up the Kaepernick angle, but most of them aren't thinking about more than generating ad clicks. Disney is the long term planner.

It's not even a conspiracy theory. It's just business.
