I hope board members dont sleep on this kid. I hope he makes the roster. We need to develop kids like this.

I see the fluff has begun.

Just the other day I read a quote which I think came from Deshea Townsend talking about the depth at CB behind Fuller, the rookie Johnson, Tolliver, Artie Burns and the Canadien Roberson.  No mention of Denmark.  So I'm thinking maybe there are moving him to safety.  Now this. 

I've often brought up the freakish ability of Denmark before - hopefully he makes the team as a corner, safety, or at least a special teamer.

Life goes on... unfortunately it has been come politically charged to keep even something that we use to get away from it all from being politically charged....

I'm hopeful the season goes on, but even if it does, there will be pressure to close it again when folks start getting sick again (and they will- as they always have) and the "bubble wrap" folk will take control once again.....

Live life as fearlessly as you feel you need to. I refuse to live in fear (and if I die so be it). But I also know many others will not feel the same way and can respect that as well....

I also wonder if the season (as long as it goes on) will feel like a bunch of pre-season games (not much practice going on). That could be amusing but also frustrating as well.

The best bet is to make alternate (and changeable) plans for Sundays this fall unfortunately....

So, word is the NFL is going to play the "black national anthem" at each game of the start of the season. The what?? So now they have their own anthem?? Never heard of 'juneteenth' which they now want to make a holiday in place of Columbus day and now this. Let me get this straight....they want equality but now they have their OWN anthem and their own holiday? What's next?? This isn't equality. Equality is ONE anthem for ONE people. This is segregation, more division. I'm not watching the NFL this season if they're going full on political. Forget it. Either we ARE one, this nation, or we're divided, seperate.

Playing the "Black National Anthem" does nothing...changes nothing.  Just as effective as someone spray painting BLM on a wall or statue. 

Instead the NFL should be working with programs to help blacks truly in need.  And they may already be doing this.

But playing this anthem is just a publicity stunt to appease the black NFL players and fans.

Most games donít televise the anthem so it will be interesting to see if they change.  According to espn itís week one only.

Iíve watched parts of 3 Seahawks games from last year and focused on Ifedi.
He has nimble feet and stays in front of his man in pass protect but looks soft as a marshmallow run blocking.

True.  And if there are no fans in the stands for the first game or first few games then who hears the additional anthem if the TV viewers don't?

As for Ifedi,  I have read that his problems were pass blocking and penalties.  The opposite of what you are saying.

  To get off topic a bit,if the Washington Redskin's organization feels obligated to changing their name I suggest The Washington Warriors.
