Something has got to give in this one, right? I know you’re all screaming, “Whaddya talkin’ about, Derry?” Well, the Panthers have won 14 consecutive regular season games, but the Cowboys have won seven in a row with Tony Romo under center. You’re right, that’s still not enough to make me pick Dallas. The lines makers are nuts.
This week Seattle Sidelines poll addressed a topic that been the talk of the country over the past week. Last weekend many NFL teams took actions during the national anthem prior to their games as a means to protest against racial inequity.

Roscoe Brown flew 68 missions and took part in the longest flight mission during the entire campaign, a 1,500 mile journey from Italy to Berlin to shoot Hitler’s air army in their collective dick.

He was just hired as an ESPN commentator, and he’s still an endorsement gold mine even though he hasn’t started an NFL game in two years. I’ve written it before and I’ll reiterate it here: He has the charisma, the name recognition and the conservative Christian political support to be president of the United States someday..
