    49ers announce release of veteran LB Bowman

    Kyle Shanahan has inherited Pops' way with the truth. Monday he was asked why Bowman spent so much time on the bench Sunday. “This is not about phasing anyone out. We think keeping him fresher will help our team.”

    Four-time first-team All-Pro, including once after his whole knee was torn apart on that fumble recovery in Seattle in the 2013/14 NFC championship game. For my money there were a couple of years he was better than Patrick Willis.

    I don't know if he'll try to hook on with another team. But he's cooked.

    You mean the NFL may end up netting a tad less than $14 billion this year?! ZOMG!

    My favorite part of MMQB is when PK has licked his pointer finger and held it to the wind enough to know that it's safe to do an NFL flag story in which the writer takes on the establishment in the most milquetoast of milquetoasty ways possible.

    The secret to the NFL's wealth isn't that every game gets great ratings, although many do, it's that the ratings are dependable. The broadcasters know they can plug in a game and get a number they can predict with one hell of a lot more confidence than any other form of programming they have on tap. The league is really the last of the old-fashioned network TV hit shows. In a business full of very expensive bad bets, it's a percentage play.

    I would like to add that his wife's secret twitter presence is the first remotely interesting thing about Roger Goodell I've ever learned.

    No, you can plug in the Gary Burghoff Good Time Smilin' Variety Hour and you know you can get consistently bad ratings.

    The NFL's wealth is keyed to fucking GREAT ratings.

    Early in the second quarter, it's Jets 14-Patriots 0. On merit, too.
