The best fit for Colin Kaepernick is the Jacksonville Jaguars. Where he could push Gardner Minshew:

The old saying goes “competition brings out the best in everybody.” If that’s true then the Jacksonville Jaguars should sign Colin Kaepernick. Right now Gardner Minshew is the starting quarterback of this team. And while Minshew showed a lot of promise in his rookie season. If he struggles or gets injured this year then Jacksonville will need someone else they can turn to. Mike Glennon is currently the backup QB on the Jaguars roster and there’s no doubt that Kaepernick is a better player. So this is the right situation for Kaepernick for a number of reasons. He’s good enough to have a roster spot on this team. Then you have to factor in that Kaepernick could actually push Minshew and make him work harder. So if Jaguars owner Shahid Khan wants to win over his players. It would make sense to sign Kaepernick. Because not only does it add up from a football perspective. This move would also create a buzz for Jacksonville. People from around the world will buy this guy’s jersey and come to the games to support him. And if you go down the list and Kaepernick checks off all of the boxes. Then why not offer him a contract? There’s no reason not to.

The Great Midwest Football Conference kicked off their season and we’re officially up and running. Everything went smoothly in week one and it appears to be a success for the league. Here’s a recap of everything that happened.

Flint Fury knock off Great Lakes Bruins 8-6

Flint Fury was the only team in the Southern Division to win their opener. They just barely held off the Great Lakes Bruins in a 8-6 victory. Terence Cureton led the way for the Fury with 4 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 interception. That’s the type of performance needed to get the upper hand in a defensive battle.

Tri-County Crusaders pitch a shutout in 14-0 win over Detroit Red Doggs

The Tri-County Crusaders have the #1 ranked defense in the league after one week. And we all know the old saying “defense wins championships.” If this trend continues the Crusaders are in great shape. The Detroit Red Doggs couldn’t get anything going against them.

Albion Warriors start off on right foot by beating the Battle Creek Assassins 14-6

If we’re going off market size. The Battle Creek Assassins should have an advantage over the Albion Warriors. But the Warriors showed that they’re a well ran organization. Their tight knit approach helped them get the best of Battle Creek 14-6. This is a good indication from the Warriors. Clearly they’re a team that can’t be overlooked in the GMFC.

Northern Michigan Wolves were better than the Petoskey Panthers in 38-20 shootout

The Northern Michigan Wolves had an explosion of offense in their 38-20 victory over the Petoskey Panthers. This is currently the highest scoring group in the GMFC. Most of the other teams have a long ways to go on the offensive side of the ball. Could the Wolves ability to put points on the board be what separates them from the pack?

Semi Pro Football: Great Midwest Football Conference is pushing on despite coronavirus

Camping World

Michigan is no stranger to semi-pro football. Every Spring hundreds of players suit up hoping to get an escape from everyday life. Football is a healthy distraction and it’s a good choice for someone who’s hoping to stay active. But this isn’t a normal year by any means. The coronavirus has shutdown most of the pro sports world. However semi-pro football in Michigan is alive and well. The Great Midwest Football Conference just kicked off their season last weekend. It’s a resilient act by a league that hopes to gain an upper hand while most of their competitors have put their schedules on hold. And it seems to be working because many players have flocked to the GMFC. If their previous teams don’t offer an option to play and someone else does. Then the guys that want to get back on the field will go wherever the action is. That seems to be the case here and luckily Michigan hasn’t seen a rise in COVID-19 cases like some of the other states have. Initially the Detroit area got hammered by the virus and there’s been 5,907 deaths in the state so far. But after that first wave things have calmed down. The GMFC is crossing their fingers that trend will continue. And if everything works out this gamble could help the upstart league gain some traction. Like so many other businesses around the world. They’re staying defiant in a time of uncertainty.

Code red. The 49ers offense is in bad shape after losing Deebo Samuel and Richie James Jr. to injuries:

Just like that the San Francisco 49ers have some problems. The bad news started yesterday when Deebo Samuel broke his foot. That was a devastating blow for the team because Samuel was outstanding as a rookie. Kyle Shanahan had high hopes for Samuel in his second season. Because he set the bar so high a year ago. Now Samuel’s progress will be hindered since he’ll be out of action for three or four months. What that means is he’ll have to spend the majority of his time recovering. While everyone else will be training and getting better. Then when Samuel returns he’ll need to get back up to speed. It can take a month or two before he’s in game shape. Therefore the second year receiver faces some challenges ahead of him. But at least we know he’s dedicated to his craft. And sometimes that laser focus can create miracles. However Samuel wasn’t the only 49ers receiver to get injured. Richie James Jr. also broke his wrist. So Shanahan will have his work cut out for him. He’ll have to find a way to guide this team through both of these setbacks.

The Jamal Adams era is coming to an end for the New York Jets. He wants the team to trade him:

We’ve known that the New York Jets and Jamal Adams have been at odds for a long time. Adams wanted a contract extension and the Jets were unwilling to get a deal done. There’s also been plenty of signs of Adams’ frustration on his social media accounts. Finally Adams just came out and said that he’d like to be traded. The ideal landing spot for Adams is the Dallas Cowboys and he’s hoping that’s where he’ll end up. But most of this is happening because New York isn’t a contender. Adams doesn’t want to risk his health while playing for a losing team. To him it’s just not worth it and he’ll take his chances elsewhere. For Adams he feels like his career is wasting away with this organization. When you also add in the friction between Adam Gase and him. It makes sense that he’d want to get out now. Gase’s coaching staff benched Adams after a loss to the Browns last season. There’s a good chance that situation would continue to deteriorate if he stuck around. So it was better for Adams to force his way out. At the moment it feels like the Jets will grant his wish. Because they have to be sick of dealing with all of the distractions that have been swirling around Adams’ future.
