Deshaun Watson is as unique a rookie as I remember in the NFL.


The 49ers might have chosen to wait until the offseason before attempting to sign Garoppolo, but their desire to make a move now is telling.

McSorley pulls another Tebow-like play by running in for a 6-yard touchdown to put the Nittany Lions up 28-10 with eight minutes left in the second half. A Meyer-coached team has never overcome that kind of a deficit. That pizza is just losing all sorts of flavor at the bottom of Ohio Stadium.

Iowa State is flirting with another fantastic performance after Kyle Kempt finds a leaping, tip-toeing, 6-foot-6 Hakeem Butler in the back of the end zone. Butler clearly gets both feet down, but the play is reviewed. Doesn’t matter. The call is upheld and Iowa State is up 14-0 with 3:29 remaining until halftime.

Think of Watson since he’s been drafted. He worker-beed his way through training camp, giving deference to nominal starter Tom Savage. He donated his first game check to three lunch ladies with the Texans who suffered losses in the big Houston flood.

Every night the team would end up wearing a subtle diss about Kevin Durant.

I need a little bit more than a black-and-white color scheme. The Nets have the type of uniforms worn by the villainous squad in a sports movie. Brooklyn deserves something that’s a little more vibrant.

Meanwhile, fellow receiver Snead returned to action in Week 6 but did very little in his season debut, notching just one reception for 11 yards. He was a bit of a surprise inactive in Week 7, but the wet conditions at Lambeau Field combined with his continued limited participation in practice might have set him up for a less-than-optimal outing.
