Gruesome NFL injury videos

Bad NFL Injuries

Ok I almost didn't write this as it isn't my thing but here are videos of some of the most gruesome NFL injuries ever. Anybody who think pro football players are overpaid should watch these videos of bad NFL injuries.

The worst one I can remember seeing was Joe Theismann getting his leg broken by Lawrence Taylor, and I was watching this game on tv at the time. I will never forget Lawrence Taylor who was not the nicest guy, jumping up and yelling for Redskins doctors and trainers to get out there.

One of these videos just shows 5 bad NFL injuries so there may be one on there that is in this article already. Another video shows 16 career ending injuries which again may be repeated. I didn't even watch all of the videos because I am a wuss.

Poll Should the Cowboys give Peyton Manning a call?

Should the Dallas Cowboys give Peyton Manning a call if Dak Prescott struggles? We know Peyton Manning didn't want to retire and played horribly last year. You have to assume that Peyton Manning after not having the stress on his body from training camp could squeeze out 6 or 7 games behind a great Cowboys offensive line.

The best play for the Cowboys is to see what Dak Prescott has and nobody but the most ardent Cowboys fan expects Prescott to dominate like he did in preseason. If Prescott just plain wets the bed in the regular season or gets hurt I think the Cowboys should consider coaxing Peyton Manning out of retirement.

Last year Manning struggled but he did adapt to trying to win with defense and a running game. Well the Cowboys have no defense but they will probably have the best running game in the NFL this year. Jerry Jones loves publicity and Peyton Manning don't exactly shun it himself.

Colin Kaepernick     Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has talked to the media about his decision to sit while the National Anthem is being played. While I am annoyed with him for disrespecting our country I do commend him for taking a stand.

One thing I keep seeing on social media is people talking about Kaepernick being raised by white parents and how the NFL made him rich so he isn't being oppressed. Well the thing is Colin Kaepernick is actually concerned about other people being oppressed.

There are some reports that Colin Kaepernick has converted to Islam and that could factor into this. I don't know if he did, his Twitter is sure of a left wing bent but he took a shot at both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on race.

“Ultimately it’s to bring awareness and make people realize what’s really going on in this country,” Kaepernick said, via Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News. “There are a lot of things that are going on that are unjust, people aren’t being held accountable for, that’s something that needs to change. That’s something, that, this country stands for liberty, freedom, justice for all. And it’s not happening for all right now. … I’ll continue to sit. I’m continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. To me this is something that has to change, and when there’s significant change and I feel that that flag represents what it’s supposed to represent and this country is representing people in the way that it’s supposed to, I’ll stand.”

“I have great respect for our men and women that fought for this country,” Kaepernick said. “I have family, I have friends that have fought for this country. And they fight for freedom. They fight for liberty and justice, for everyone. And that’s not happening. I mean, people are dying in vain because this country is not holding its end of the bargain up as far as giving freedom and justice and liberty to everybody. It’s something that’s not happening. I’ve seen videos, I’ve seen circumstances, where men and women that have been in the military have come back and been treated unjustly by the country they fought for, and have been murdered by the country they fought for. On our land. That’s not right.”

I just hope that when Kaepernick gets released which is likely to happen due to high pay and poor play, that he does not get blackballed from the NFL. He has enough talent to at least be a backup quarterback somewhere.
