NFL's Marquise Goodwin Scores Touchdown Hours After Baby Son's Death

Our thoughts are with San Francisco 49ers player Marquise Goodwin and his wife Morgan Goodwin-Snow, who lost their son due to pregnancy complications.

“I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy. Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4 a.m,” Marquise wrote on Instagram. “Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan. The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please Pray for the Goodwin family.”

Before revealing this tragic news and just hours after his son’s death, Marquise played in an NFL game against the New York Giants and scored an 83 yard touchdown in their win. As he scored, he sank to his knees in an emotional moment. Our thoughts are with Marquise, Morgan and their loved ones during this time.

NFL's Cam Newton Slammed for Remark to Female Reporter

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton got dragged on social media after he made a remark to a female reporter during a press conference on Wednesday (October 4).

Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked about one of Cam‘s wide receivers and the physicality of his routes. For non-football fans, a route is the path the wide receiver runs before catching the ball from the quarterback.

“It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes like — it’s funny,” Cam responded back to her.

Jourdan then released a statement (via ESPN), saying, “This afternoon, I did my job as an NFL beat writer and asked Cam Newton a question about one of his receivers. I was dismayed by his response, which not only belittled me but countless other women before me and beside me who work in similar jobs. I sought Mr. Newton out as he left the locker room a few minutes later. He did not apologize for his comments.”

Apparently, Jourdan also asked Cam if he knew her name after working with the Panthers since October of 2016. He said he did not.

Cam‘s comment quickly went viral and many weighed in on social media…including Jourdan.

Aaron Rodgers Takes on Those Opposed to NFL's Anthem Protest

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been supporting his teammates who kneel for the National Anthem, and took to Instagram to point out a bit of hypocrisy.

The 33-year-old quarterback posted a photo of him and his teammates locking arms, while a cameraman in a hat films them from below.

“I can’t imagine what kind of social media attacks these cameramen must be enduring after taking a knee during the anthem and wearing a hat. #unity #equalityforall #love #cometogether #invitationtojoin” Aaron posted on Instagram along with the photo you can see in the gallery below.

In addition, Aaron wants fans to join in on the protest as well.

“This is about equality,” he said (via ESPN). “This is about unity and love and growing together as a society and starting a conversation around something that may be a little bit uncomfortable for people. “But we’ve got to come together and talk about these things and grow as a community, as a connected group of individuals in our society, and we’re going to continue to show love and unity, and this week we’re going to ask the fans to join in as well and come together and show people that we can be connected and we can grow together.”

Steelers' Alejandro Villanueva Says He 'Made a Mistake' By Standing Alone for Anthem

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva was the only member of the team to come out of the tunnel and stand for the National Anthem this weekend.

Unfortunately, the 29-year-old, who was an Army Ranger and served in Afghanistan, now regrets his decision.

“There was disagreement in what we were going to do. And the only course of action was to go inside and remove ourself from the situation. It was never to disrespect the national anthem. Every single one of my teammates is extremely supportive and extremely patriotic in this locker room. And I can not only say that for this locker room, but I can say that across the NFL, every single player that I’ve gone against,” Alejandro said during a press conference.

“I would say that my personal thoughts about the situation is that regardless of this plan, very few players knew that I was going to the tunnel because I only asked the team leadership. And because of that I did not give them an opportunity to stand with me during the national anthem. That is the very embarrassing part of my end in what transpired, because when everybody sees an image of me standing by myself, everybody thinks that the team, the Steelers, are not behind me, and that’s absolutely wrong,” Alejandro continued. “It’s quite the opposite. They all would have … actually the entire team would have been out there with me, even the ones who wanted to take a knee would have been with me had they known these extreme circumstances that at Soldier Field, in the heat of the moment, when I’ve got soldiers, wounded veterans texting me that I have to be out there, I think everything would have been put aside, from every single one of my teammates, no doubt.”

“So because of that, I’ve made Coach Tomlin look bad, and that is my fault, and that is my fault only. I made my teammates look bad, and that is my fault, and my fault only. And I made the Steelers also look bad, and that is my fault, and my fault only. So unwillingly, I made a mistake,” Alejandro continued. “I talked to my teammates about the situation, hopefully they understand it. If they don’t, I still have to live with it, because the nature of this debate is causing a lot of very heated reaction from fans from players, and it’s undeserving to all of the players and coaches from this organization….Unfortunately, I threw them under the bus unintentionally.”

Jesse Williams Speaks Out About National Anthem at NFL Games: 'It's A Scam'

Jesse Williams is sharing his thoughts about the National Anthem playing at football games.

The 36-year-old actor says that players stepping onto the field for the anthem is a marketing “scam” and does not have to do with NFL tradition.

“I think…it’s also important to realize that this anthem thing is a scam. This is not actually part of football. This was invented in 2009 from the government paying the NFL to market military recruitment – to get more people to go off and fight wars to die,” Jesse said on MSNBC.

He added, “This has nothing to do with NFL or American pastime or tradition. This is to get boys and girls to go fly overseas and go kill people. They’re marketing. They’re pumping millions and millions of dollars into the NFL to get us to put on a pageant in front of NFL football games to get you to go off and fight.”

Hear all that Jesse had to say in the video below…
