Found July 13, 2013 on Football Nation:
Mike Singletary was never much of a Vernon Davis adherent. He went as far as to bench the polarizing tight end mid-contest in 2008 because of Davis’ indifferent demeanor.Singletary’s postgame rant concerning his disdain for selfish play resonated far beyond the final tally on the scoreboard.“I would rather play with 10 people and get penalized all the way until we've got to do something else. Rather than play with 11 when I know that right now that person is not sold out to be a part of this team. It is more about them than it is about the team. Cannot play with them.

Kaepernick’s Hat: Lessons yet to be learned in maturity

It doesn’t come close to the Aaron Hernandez arrest. It didn’t involve breaking any laws or hurting anyone. It doesn’t even warrant a suspension from the 49ers organization. Instead, it was just a young quarterback showing his immaturity and disloyalty to an organization. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently was photographed donning a Miami Dolphins hat...

2013 Fantasy Football – Tight Ends – Should You Draft A TE Early?

    Last year, you only wanted two tight ends, Gronk and Graham, who both are coming off record-breaking years and expected to revolutionize how this position was drafted in leagues moving forward.  However, with Gronk’s recent injuries and potentially missing some part of the season, I would say to target Graham early, after these two tight ends, there is a drop-off.  If you...
