There’s a lot of Chargers fans who are insisting that first-round draft pick Joey Bosa end his holdout and acquiesce to the Chargers’ demands. Those fans are wrong.

GABBERT STRUGGLESBlaine Gabbert struggles in 49ers preseason opener. Starting to look like a no-win QB situation in San Francisco.

GORDON'S RUNNINGMelvin Gordon needs to learn how to run in the NFL. Gordon is a particular type of runner and he needs a particular situation to succeed. Might he be in that situation this year?

SAFETY FIRSTBrowns QB Cody Kessler pulled a Dan Orlovsky and ran out of the end zone for a safety. D'oh!

BLACK AND SILVER DEPTH: Raiders deep defensive line could mask loss of Mario Edwards Jr. There weren't too many major injuries through first week of the preseason, but the Raiders lost Edwards for up to six weeks.
