Barnwell: Why did Broncos kneel out first half?

NFL Week 1: The Art of the Comeback
grantland.com

New Orleans scored a touchdown with 24 seconds left in the first half to go up 20-7, only for Ryan to take over after the ensuing touchback with 20 seconds left and drive 58 yards on two plays to set up a Matt Bryant field goal.

It was ironic later, then, that people weren’t more angry at John Fox for kneeling after a touchback with Peyton Manning in the thin air of Denver (where it’s easier to make long kicks) after a virtually perfect first half on offense with three timeouts and 19 seconds left.

Yeah, well, that's Foxball for you...

Fox & Friends is just the f&*^ing worst

New low for ‘Fox & Friends’: Joking about Ray Rice elevator assault
www.washingtonpost.com

But at least the folks at “Fox & Friends,” easily cable news’s most idiotic program, can mine it for a laugh or two. After running through the details of the assault this morning, co-host Brian Kilmeade joked, “I think the message is, take the stairs.”
