The first segment of the 7am hour Friday with Barstool Sports' David Portnoy arriving for his hosting audition. The guys get right into his WEEI beefs.

These are the bloopers, outtakes and flubbed lines of the “[Expletive] Pats Fans Say: 2016 Edition” video I posted last week. Thanks as always to Nick “Fitzy” Stevens, George “The Other Guy From the Pats Fans Videos” Kippenhan and Geoff “The Director” Stevens. Plus to the greatest town in all the world, Weymouth, for being the real star of this one. You are all geniuses.

AROUND THE WEB:

— Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall became the latest NFL player to take a knee during the national anthem, performing his protest before the season-opening game Thursday night in Denver.

Marshall, a college teammate of Colin Kaepernick, said he “felt it was the right thing to do.”

“I’m not against the military, police or America. I’m against social injustice,” he said, adding: “I think the more people do it, the more it’s seen — there’s going to be hate mail, hate comments, but at the same time, people will talk about it. Some people are going to stand by me, some people aren’t. But I know my loved ones, the people that love me and care about me, they’re going to stand behind me, and that’s all that matters to me.

“A lot of stuff that happened this summer, the police brutality, that sparked a conversation. We can talk all we want, but actions speak louder than words, so when [Kaepernick] took a knee, or sat down, he got people thinking. Then he was able to say everything he felt, everything he meant.”

Meanwhile, the anthem talk Thursday centered on the Seahawks, who revealed that they are planning a team-wide display of some kind before Sunday’s opener.

Tweeted Doug Baldwin: To express a desire to bring people together, our team will honor the country and flag in a pregame demonstration of unity.

Asked by reporters what the team had planned, Baldwin would only say: “You’ll see on Sunday.”

Former Green Beret Nate Boyer, who has spent time with the Seahawks and most recently talked to Kapernick about his protest (and reportedly encouraged him to kneel rather than sit during the anthem), said he was impressed by the Seahawks’ team unity.

“It has to be a team-first approach in order to get anything done,” Boyer told Fox Sports Radio. “Whether it is Kaepernick’s mission-changing policy or changing things on the field, you have to be unified. Showing a common goal between different walks of life is how you influence change.

“I spoke with the players, and they realize that 9/11 is a very important day in our nation’s history. The Seahawks, and probably every team, will be honoring those who serve in camouflage and also those in blue who served on such a difficult day. Shortly after 9/11, our country seemed more unified than I had ever experienced and was the most unified it has been since I have been alive. Since that date, we have grown farther apart in our unity. Standing together this Sunday is key to making progress. What the team will do is a powerful sign of unification.

— Bruce Miller, who was released by the 49ers after being arrested early Monday morning, was charged Thursday with multiple accounts of assault and battery.

The 29-year-old Miller allegedly attacked a 70-year-old man and his son at a San Francisco hotel after being told he was trying to enter the wrong room. Miller, who police said was intoxicated, was charged with using a deadly weapon, a cane.

Miller’s agent, Jack Beale, told the media there was more to the case but did not elaborate.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I think it was a very cool gesture by Mr. Kraft and the team. I’ll be excited to be back out there in October when I am there for real. It was a really cool thing to do.

I’ve yet to see it in person.” — Tom Brady, on the banner of him the Patriots installed on the Gillette Stadium lighthouse
