A couple weeks ago Andy wrote some things about Colin Kaepernick that upset people. So we decided it was a good time to take a break from the position rankings shows, shake out the sillies and take a deeper, more rational dive into a subject that folks seem to be losing their minds over.

Andy and I don’t quite see eye-to-eye on the plusses and minuses of Kaepernick. But there also seems to be this urge for people to use his abilities and/or shortcomings on the field as some kind of proxy in regards to the righteousness of his off-the-field activism. We did our best to separate the two in this conversation.

We also had Ross Tucker swing by to discuss something near and dear to our hearts: the state of O-line play in the NFL (in light of last week's show on the top offensive linemen in football). Anyway…
