    From PFT:

    The Oakland Raiders have become the victims of fake news.

    Miko Grimes, the wife of Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes, has made an inflammatory claim about the Raiders — a claim so ridiculous and patently false that we initially weren’t going to mention it.

    Grimes contended during a radio appearance that the team’s offensive line deliberately allowed the Week Four injury to quarterback Derek Carr. She further explained that they were unhappy with the manner in which Carr handled the anthem controversy.

    “[H]e was so upset about it when the whole offensive line was saying they were going to kneel, he was like, ‘No, no, no, no, you’re not kneeling. No. No.'” Grimes said. “‘This is America. You’re going to stand for the flag.’ And they got in a fight in the locker room. So when they came out to play, they basically had a plan. . . .”

    Here’s the problem with that contention. The injury happened in Week Four, when the Raiders played the Broncos in Denver. The kneeling controversy hit full boil a week earlier, when the Raiders played Washington on a Sunday night.

    Grimes actually referred to the injury as happening against Washington, which could be regarded as an innocent factual error. It’s also possible, however, the Grimes became aware of radio chatter (take a few minutes to listen to it) that the Raiders’ offensive line essentially tanked the game at Washington (Oakland lost 27-10) and that after Carr suffered the injury a week later she mashed the two events together, deliberately or inadvertently, and emerged with the misguided notion that the offensive line pulled a Remember The Titans/The Longest Yard maneuver on Carr in the heat of the moment, fueled by the craziness that descended on the league in the days after President Trump but the NFL on blast.

    I believe it, actually. That sack total was an anomaly for them.

    I wouldve done the protest based on his narcissitic music video. Guy is feeling himself a little too much.
