Not sure if you heard, but noted nude model and 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick might be into other guys, at least that’s the silly question posed by Queerty. Probably not, but anything’s possible, right? Whatever feels good, you know. Look, we’re just two dudes who sometimes like other guys. We’re not into Lady Gaga or RuPaul or that shit. I mean, what guy, under the siren song of an empty whiskey bottle and a bag of Peruvian flake, isn’t a touch curious?
Do you mind if I take my shirt off? It’s tight and my muscles are sore from working out.

Garoppolo only managed to complete 45 percent of his passes; he threw a career-high three interceptions; and he lost for the first time ever as a starting NFL quarterback.

In his first NFL start, Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold made fairly easy work of Detroit’s pass defense in Week 1, completing 76 percent of his passes for yards and two touchdowns. He should also receive more help from the running game this week to open up the play-action passing game.
All signs point to Garoppolo rebounding nicely in Week 2.

So coach Kyle Shanahan gave the banged-up Beathard the afternoon off from walk-throughs because he was struggling to grip a football.
