    It’s been a tough few years for the San Francisco 49ers: First they lost Jim Harbaugh, the Head Coach who led them to the Super Bowl and three of their top players who opted for early retirement; then after one miserable season under Jim Tomsula, the team hired the beleaguered Chip Kelly who has clashed with management even before coaching a single regular season game. Just when things seemed like they couldn’t get any worse, their quarterback, Colin Kaepernick opts not to honor the Star Spangled Banner during a pre-season game. Joshua Neuman and Tunisha Singleton revel in the sorry state of the Niners and discuss the possibilities and pratfalls for pro athletes trying to impact society. Plus, a look at the penultimate episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” and we test your knowledge of Rams on the bubble in our own version of “Jeopardy.”
