Reuben Foster wears 'savage' 49ers jersey on sideline

Inactive for Thursday’s game, San Francisco 49ers rookie linebacker Reuben Foster was wearing a jersey on the sideline with a slightly different look. See if you can spot it. (via SF49ers/Snapchat) pic.twitter.com/bAMwCMv6qL — Bleacher Report NFL (@BR_NFL) September 22, 2017 “Savage.” This can only mean one of two things. One, Foster has a pretty high opinion of himself. He’s certainly been a beast on the field so if that’s the case, we can’t blame him. Two, the 49ers have...

Thursday Night Football Live: Rams vs. 49ers

Join us for the first football action of the week as the LA Rams take on the San Francisco 49ers.

Games like this were made for fantasy football. They were made for investing you in the 49ers’ run game, not in the idea that this is going to be a prime example of the sport we all know and love.

That being said, if you’re not watching tonight because you have Carlos Hyde on your fantasy team, there are plenty of other interesting storylines and pieces to watch. The Rams’ offense looks...

Deshaun Watson’s First NFL Touchdown...In T-Shirt Form!

So Texans fans will never forget what their rookie QB did in his first NFL start, we now have a t-shirt to memorialize it.

The Texans’ victory over the Bengals on Thursday Night Football a week ago didn’t have a whole lot of offensive highlights.

With one rather significant exception, at least for Texans fans.

Mr. @DeshaunWatson WILL DO IT HIMSELF.

Deshaun Watson Could Make History Against The Patriots

And this wouldn’t be the first time he beat enormous odds.

As NFL Media’s James Palmer pointed out on Twitter yesterday, Texans rookie Deshaun Watson has an uphill battle to fight against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in New England.

Look out Deshaun Watson: No rookie QB has gone into NE & beaten Belichick since he took over in 2000. 0-8, 5 TD, 16 INT, 50.7 passer rating

Think about that. No rookie quarterback has ever won in...

Bill Belichick again compares J.J. Watt to Lawrence Taylor

When Bill Belichick watches tape of J.J. Watt, he cannot help but see a lot of Lawrence Taylor in the standout Houston Texans superstar. And with that, the New England Patriots head coach may have paid Watt the highest compliment he could possibly make. Taylor was one the most dominant defensive players in NFL history with the way in which he terrorized opposing offenses. Bill Belichick obviously knows a thing or two about LT, having either been his linebackers coach or defensive coordinator...

In Remembrance Of My Favorite Failed Rick Smith Draft Pick

Former third round pick was Jaelen Strong was released earlier this week, and now I can’t stop thinking about Brandon Harris.

Earlier this week Jaelen Strong was released. Sad! He is now the Jacksonville Jaguars’ problem, a faux replacement for the ACL-compromised Allen Robinson. Strong’s Texans career came to an end with 28 catches on 48 targets, 292 yards, and 3 touchdowns. I remember two of these catches. The Hail Mary against the Colts in 2015, and the sideline fade against the...

Texans’ J.J. Watt indicates he has a broken finger

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is about as tough as nails. He is not going to let what was originally diagnosed as a dislocated finger, get in the way of his production.Watt had this to say about his now, broken finger, that he described as “not bad.”“It’s just a finger. If it were anything else, it’d be a problem,” Watt said, according to Sarah Barshop of ESPN. “It’s an injury that doesn’t bother me whole lot because I didn’t have use of that finger for a long...
