And by the way, yes, the Giants have reached the Uggla Stage of this season. Brace yourselves.

Last RT was for a friend. I almost never do this, but for this friend, I made an exception.

I get it. Nobody is ever supposed to look analytically at anybody in sports. It's plain mean. I'll do it, anyway. Until I'm fired.

Tim Kawakami

Raiders fans, would you get a grip? I didn't say Hayden would never play. I said the Raiders can't COUNT on it.

Tim Kawakami

Many Raiders fans still want to believe in Hayden. That's OK, I get it. You buy your tickets and want to believe in things.

Tim Kawakami

There's a certain Raiders mentality--still out there in parts--that only accepts their reality, not the actual one. OK. But don't read me.

Tim Kawakami

This was during a camp practice. Players could hear. All because I enraged a team official by stating the team's record the previous season.

Tim Kawakami

Hoping a player is valuable in the future is not actually the same thing as the player being valuable.

Tim Kawakami

In the same way, Marcus Lattimore's value isn't much right now. But he was a 4th-round pick last year, not #12 overall.

Tim Kawakami

An NFL player's value is measured by what he can be counted on to provide today, in a month or four months. Hayden's value: Zero.

I'm only saying this because, w/Sherman popping off, I keep hearing "Crabtree had him beat." I looked at it again: No, he probably didn't.

Tim Kawakami

Even if Kaepernick leads Crabtree by a few more feet, I think Sherman had that one timed out and still would've tipped it.

Tim Kawakami

After my 200th viewing of the Sherman/Crabtree play... I now think Sherman had him covered & slowed down a bit because it was underthrown.

Tim Kawakami

I don't block you if you disagree with me. I block you if you're obnoxious. No other reason. If you can't understand that, block yourself.

Tim Kawakami

I didn't watch all of practice, either. Maybe the 49ers pass game is lighting it up now. I presume 49ers fans will be mad at me either way.

Tim Kawakami

But I am NOT suggesting this is a problem. It's Day 1. They don't play for real for quite a bit of time.

Tim Kawakami

OK, more detail on the 49ers passing game: From what I saw, in team drills, receivers weren't very open & QBs had to force the ball.

Tim Kawakami

Joe Looney is getting first-team reps at RG in Alex Boone's absence.

Tim Kawakami

So far, Kaepernick has gotten a ton of reps and as of yet the 49ers pass offense isn't looking so great. Obviously just Day 1.

Tim Kawakami

49ers are still practicing, but definitely impressed by Jimmie Ward. Very, very active and can tell he'll be lively when they put on pads.

Tim Kawakami

That's not a criticism of Smith. If the judge is barely putting any requirements on the sentence, that's on the judge.

Tim Kawakami

Interesting part of Aldon Smith's session: He says he hasn't started his 11-Monday sentence yet and will do it "the times I have free time."

Didn't realize I caught Harbaugh in a semi-glare at me in that snapshot. But everything is positive--that's what he said 5 or 10 times.

As I was asked on live TV last night... I would say the Raiders being improved but finishing last would be the likeliest outcome.

A lot of things could happen in any division. Nothing would shock me. But if you ask me the likeliest AFC West scenario...

Only she can dictate her capacity to forgive RT @ms3raiders: an even worse message is marrying the guy who almost killed you

Tim Kawakami

I do think Goodell can be swayed by team management campaigning for a player, and 49ers management is all-in for Aldon Smith leniency.

Marcus Thompson

I'm not. I'm siding with Mr. Strong man should have had strength to walk away RT @The_Evil_Grid: No but I'm giving Ray benefit of doubt.

Marcus Thompson

And you do? RT @The_Evil_Grid: You weren't there. What did she do or say? Maybe she had it coming. You don't know details

The Goodell 2014 Suspension Progression? Ray Rice 2 games, Aldon Smith 1 game, Jim Irsay big smoochies and a bro hug. (/just a theory)

Marcus Thompson

Two games ... what an awful message to send. So smoking weed is worse than knocking out a woman? #NFL

Tim Kawakami

Remember, the commissioner isn't working for the "good of the game," he's working for the good of the owners of the game.

Tim Kawakami

Only 2 games for Ray Rice? I don't understand Goodell's suspension policy, I don't think he does, either.

If the superintendent is so worried about our school district and every dollar saved counts... Why haven't he taken a payout??? Just curious
