Good thing Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers allowed Ault to just let Kaepernick play quarterback because he has helped the Niners turn their fortunes around and now have a chance to win the franchise's sixth Super Bowl.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially ended their head coaching search and have hired Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley as the team's newest head coach.
Bradley, 46, replaces Mike Mularkey who went 2-14 in his only season in Jacksonville, the worst in the franchise's history. Bradley becomes the full time head coach in the franchise's history, joining Tom Coughlin, Jack Del Rio, and Mike Mularkey.
Bradley has spent the last four seasons in Seattle, where his defense has improved the last three seasons and finished in the top ten in points and yards in the last two. The Seahawks ranked first this season in points allowed per game (15.3).
The Jacksonville Jaguars ranked 30th in the NFL in total defense and desperately needs Bradley's defensive expertise.
"He's got a brilliant football mind," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said this week. "He's got a way of reaching people and touching people and getting the best out of them, coaches and players alike. He's got everything that you're looking for."
Bradley started his NFL coaching career in Tampa Bay as a defensive quality control coach in 2006 before becoming the Buccaneers' linebackers coach the next two seasons. Bradley also coached at North Dakota State, his alma mater, and Fort Lewis College.
The Seattle Seahawks offense once again couldn't get off the ground and Sidney Rice didn't hold back on his frustration with quarterback Russell Wilson.
In the third quarter, Rice threw his mouthpiece in disgust after Wilson tossed an interception with Seattle still in the game.
(Since it won't let me put the GIF on this post, here is the link)
The Seahawks only lost by seven, thanks in part to a less than stellar performance by 49ers quarterback and the best quarterback in the league Alex Smith.
Texans know how to fight. Especially when alcohol is involved and what fight doesn't involve alcohol.
This brawl during the Texans-49ers game back on August 18 has been making the rounds on the Internet after a cell phone video has made the light of day.
KHOU reports that the fight all started when a beer was thrown on a fan and it all escalated from that point. You can even see a child get in on the action (0:46 mark in the video) and start hitting a man.
Security was nowhere to be seen during and after the fight and that left some Texan fans up in arms. One fan said, "They need to make security better here at Reliant. You never know what’s going to happen,"
Still no word on have any action was taken after the fight.
The Seattle Seahawks and rabblerousing wide receiver Terrell Owens have agreed to a one year deal.
The news of the signing was first reported by FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. Glazer tweeted "He's baaaaaack! Terrell Owens has agreed to a one year deal with the Seahawks. Hasn't signed it yet but agreed to terms"
CBS Sports' Mike Freeman reported that "Terrell blew the Seahawks away with his workout."
Owens, 38, fills a hole at wide receiver for the Seahawks. Sidney Rice has been hurt and their starters, as of right now, are Ben Obamanu and Golden Tate.
All I got to say is, Matt Flynn better get the ball to Owens or he'll bring down the entire locker room. Case in point: Jeff Garcia, Donovan McNabb, Tony Romo.
The San Francisco 49ers' Aldon Smith is recovering from what the team is saying is a minor injury sustained during a party in nearby San Jose early Saturday morning.
The Associated Press is reporting that Smith suffered stab wounds according to a person close to the situation.
The Santa Clara sheriff's office reported that deputies arrived at a house party early Saturday morning after complaints about gunfire.
The deputies found two people with gunshot wounds and another with stab wounds. The injuries sustained by the three individuals are not said to be life threatening.
49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement: "The San Francisco 49ers are aware that Aldon Smith incurred minor injuries during an incident last night. We are in contact with Aldon, and thankful that his injuries were not more serious and that he is recovering comfortably. The 49ers are also in communication with local authorities as they gather information regarding the incident, and will reserve further comment at this time."
The 49ers drafted the former Missouri standout as the seventh overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and set a team record for most rookie sacks with 14.
Embattled St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams used bounties while he was head coach of the Buffalo Bills and as defensive coordinator of the Washington Redskins, according to reports.
The Buffalo News reported that Williams set up bounties while he was the head coach of the Buffalo Bills. Informed by former Bill Coy Wire, he said, "There were financial payments." Three other unnamed players have confirmed Wire's allegations. At least a couple of players were rewarded for "knock-out shots ". "Knock-out shots" are when a player gets injured and cannot return to the game.
Wire went on to say about Williams' bounty program, "There were rewards. There never was a point where cash was handed out in front of the team. But surely, you were going to be rewarded. When somebody made a big hit that hurt an opponent, it was commended and encouraged."
The Washington Post reported that similar bounty systems were in place while he was a defensive coordinator with the Washington Redskins. Former Redskin and current director of player development for the Redskins Phillip Daniels, four former Redskin players, and an unnamed coach all told the Washington Post of their experiences after the NFL's probe was released.
The paper was unclear whether the Redskins would be held accountable if the NFL does in fact determine that the team did use a bounty system.
Daniels told the paper that he received $1500, the most he has ever received, for posting his first ever four sack game in 2005 against their vaunted rival Dallas.
"I think it is wrong the way they're trying to paint (Williams)," Daniels told the Washington Post, "He never told us to go out there and break a guy's neck or break a guy's leg. It was all in the context of a good, hard football game."
Redskins head coach while Williams was coordinator, Joe Gibbs, said that he was unaware of a bounty system in place.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is to rule on a possible punishment for the New Orleans Saints after a probe discovered Williams' bounty system in New Orleans.
The NFL's Week 10 is just about over (Okay it is over, Monday Night's game is going to be a stinker) and there are things to take away for it and things to learn. I will go over each game in short responses. So here we go.
Norv Turner's seat just went from hot to 5 alarm fire. The AFC West has become this year's NFC West.
Never count out Belichick and Brady. Jets continue to underachieve and Sanchez is still overrated.
PUNT THE BALL!
The Steelers' defense finally showed up and in the most opportune time. Could this be the end of the Bengals this season?
It always something for the Browns and note to Coach Shurmur: defenses do win championships, but you do need an offense as well.
Midnight just about struck for Fitzpatrick and the Bills. Cowboys surprisingly still alive.
Good news Colts fans, you have a bye next week. Just six more games, Colts.
Look like you can win with a quarterback who can't throw. Also, Kansas City seriously, with Denver's offensive strategy you still didn't predict they would run.
Congrats Miami, you won your first game at home in seven tries, now there is no way you get Andrew Luck now.
The Eagles once again prove my theory: The Eagles are HIGHLY OVERRATED. Andy Reid's seat is ingulfed in flames, but then again it is every year.
Houston has the best record in the AFC? Good for them. I still don't trust them.
Welcome back, Chris Johnson! Wherever have you been?
Will the real Seahawks or Ravens please stand up?
Don't look now, but here come the Bears, even without Cutler playing well.
The Niners are in fact for real and looks like Eli Manning can't win them all.
Well that's it for my brief synopsis of the week that was in the NFL. Next week has some big games, Cincinnati will prove if they are for real when they play the Ravens. The Eagles go into MetLife Stadium to try get back on track and beat the NFC East leading Giants and will the Chargers end there horrendous skid when they face he red hot Bears? Until next week, folks.
An arrest warrant was issued for free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens after failing to show up for a court hearing regarding child support payments.
Owens tried to reschedule the October 24 hearing due to his televised workout for NFL teams. However, no teams attended Owens' workout.
According to a spokesperson, Owens is looking for a new attorney and was representing himself while trying to change the hearing date. Owens now has new attorneys and will deal with the issue of the warrant later in the week.
Owens is trying to modify his child support payments. The payments were based on his salary with the Dallas Cowboys when he was making $12 million in 2007.
Owens, 37, is trying to latch onto an NFL team after undergoing knee surgery earlier in the year. He last played for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010, making 72 receptions for 983 yards and scoring nine touchdowns.
A third round pick by the 49ers out of Tennessee-Chattanooga, Owens has played for the 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bills, and Bengals. He ranks sixth all-time in receptions with 1,078, second in receiving yards with 15,934, and tied for second, with Randy Moss, for touchdown receptions with 153.
