Bortles and Kaepernick both stink. People need to stop making Kaepernick out to be an awesome quarterback. He had one good year. Fitz is 34 and a back-up and Mallet holds a clipboard for a living.
Is he being blackballed - who knows? - but he really isn't that good. A quick comparison with some of his peer QB's:
YR       NAME          GS    W/L        COMP%    TD    INT    YDS    AVG    FUM    AGE
2016    Bortles          16    3W/13L    58.9           23    16    3905    6.2          6        25
2016    Kaepernick    11    1W/10L    59.2          16     4      2241    6.8          7        29
2016    Tannehill        13    8W/5L      67.1          19    12     2995    7.7         5         29
2016    Stafford          16    9W/7L      65.3          24    10     4327    11.2       3         29

Those two don't risk alienating a bunch of sponsors and suite holders if they're signed as backups.

Also, how many versions of this story are we going to get greened before he gets signed?

From yesterday's thread:

I'm going to say it again - as much as I agree with Kaepernick's stance, the NFL is ultimately an entertainment business, and unlike a regular 9 to 5 job, you aren't entitled to a job as an NFL player. Are the owners a bunch of cowards? Yes. Do they have the right to be? Sadly, yes.

I'd rather him get signed as a second/third stringer and then fade away than be some reverse Tebow - a guy people like solely because of his political stances.
 
2017-08-03 08:42:58 AM  
In your case, 'good enough' means good enough for management to look past the hyperbolic lamentationsof easily offended ragemongers.

counter point: I want Kaep, Tebow and Manziel on the same team running a read option offense with a few more disposable QBs on the practice squad. I also want this to be a buddy movie where they fight crime.

Sherman, of all people, knows that in the NFL, if you're really, really good you can do (almost) anything you want and you'll have a job.  CK isn't good enough to warrant the perceived baggage.  He got himself excommunicated.  It happens.

If Sherman wasn't good enough to justify that mouth of his, he wouldn't have a job either.
 
2017-08-03 08:51:12 AM  
You'd think Sherman would be smart enough to understand Kap fits better in an offense that gives him simple reads and lets him run if his first two options aren't open.

Being a pro player and all, you'd assume he understands the Jets and Jags run pro style offenses and don't want their 190 pound QB running all over the field but prefer a big tall guy to stand in the pocket and make all his reads instead of scrambling.

Of course maybe he does understand all that and just wants to attach his name to the current news because he likes to show everyone how smart and socially conscious he is.

Team Sherman on this one. Kaep isn't great but he's still better than 30-50% of the bench material in the league. There is no reason other than his political toxicity to keep him off a team when you are totally serviceable for the league. And of course he lost a lot of games with 49ers last year, they collectively as a team were completely atrocious. But yeah, Bortles has a job and he doesnt. Total horseshiat.

What doesn't really make sense is there were other players who sat last year for the anthem. Malcom Jenkins for the Eagles I believe knelt every game, but nobody really cares.

Has there every been a leak or comment as to how much money he's asking for? If he's asking for minimum, then I agree he's being blackballed. If he's looking for a deal for Kaep circa 2015, then that's the bigger issue.

Either way, I don't think he's very good, but he's good enough to be a QB2. I don't think his stance was so extreme that it should prevent him from finding a QB2 job, especially considering some of the scum bags in the NFL.

This is easy to say - but where does he go and for how much?
I point this out in every thread.
The highest paid bench player makes $2.2. million a year and 90% make about $600k.
Saying Kaepernick deserves a job in the NFL is ridiculous.
That is like saying "So-and-So" is a great actor and deserves to be in all movies.
Idris Elba is not going to covet the lead role in "6 Hours Of My Dog Licking His Own Butt" for $500k.
We are all part of the baggage we carry through life. No matter what your profession is.

I meant "entitled" in the sense that you have a lot more protections relatively speaking as an employee at a 9 to 5 in terms of political activism. If someone fired you for the sole purposes of not standing for the national anthem at work, you could (depending on the state) sue for false termination causes, draw unemployment, etc.

NFL players have all sorts of nebulous "morals clauses" that owners can use to justify a player's release/suspension. Lucky Whitehead, though a victim of mistaken identity, still got cut by the Cowboys and Jerry Jones didn't have to give a reason for it like your boss has to, for example.

And when you come up with the team and the price....flood that GM with your argument instead of shouting at the clouds. (or sports talk radio).

If anyone stopped going to 49'ers games it was because they stunk.
15-33 over the last 3 years.
The Cleveland Browns were 11-38 over that period and everyone treats them as a laughingstock.
Congratulation San Francisco... You are 4 games over a laughingstock or 1.25 games per season.
 
2017-08-03 09:53:40 AM  
This is about sending a message. Be good little boys and don't rock the boat.  It's not about Kap, it's about sending a message to the next guys.

There isn't a QB on the bears roster that's better than Cap.  Also, anyone want to tell me Landry Jones is better. Nope.

Black men have no way to protest in this country. Stand quietly, kneel, protest in the street it doesn't matter. A certain segment will never believe they belong.

I say this as a white guy who kneeled for the anthem at every football game he played. And a few rugby games I played in college too.

The average, AVERAGE NFL franchise is now worth 2+ billion dollars.  Imagine the debt that goes with that.  Now imagine the number of people living really spectacular lives off of the revenue stream that services that debt.

If I'm one of those people, my financial team can estimate the risk, but what's the upside of hiring this guy?

It wasn't just the 49ers. The richest guy I personally know- my cousin's father in law, who owns a massive construction company and has a private jet- gave up his suite and stopped watching the NFL last year because he felt like Kap and "those people" were disrespecting the country.

Remember, the problem with Ray Rice wasn't that he hit his GF/wife. It was that video of it, *which the NFL and the Ravens had already seen*, leaked to the public. Combined with the fact that he was already on the decline as a productive RB, and it became easier to pretend to care about his offense.

Meh, people like that talk to hear themselves talk. Their boycott will last as long as when they start jonesing for fall sports. These are the same people that decry affirmative action, demand that the NBA sign some token white guys (foreign ones don't count, I guess) for their benefit, and get lost in the shuffle while the NBA profits hand and fist.

Ask yourself why hockey is still #4 among the big 4.

2017-08-03 11:14:30 AM  
I think Kaep is pretty okay. He's not going to pull a team up, and have them playing better than they should, but I don't think he's going to lose you games, either.

With the political shiatshow he brings, I don't think people will sign him, especially after the 'meh' season he had last year (although the rest of the team and the coaching staff were also terrible).

So glad the Broncos didn't trade for him, although they supposedly had a deal done with the 49ers, Kaep refused to take a paycut, which Denver couldn't afford.

JAGChem82: From yesterday's thread:

I'm going to say it again - as much as I agree with Kaepernick's stance, the NFL is ultimately an entertainment business, and unlike a regular 9 to 5 job, you aren't entitled to a job as an NFL player. Are the owners a bunch of cowards? Yes. Do they have the right to be? Sadly, yes.

I'd rather him get signed as a second/third stringer and then fade away than be some reverse Tebow - a guy people like solely because of his political stances.


You aren't entitled to a 9 to 5 job either, but there are infinitely more opportunities for jobs out there while there are only 32 starting quarterback jobs in the NFL and if you're not starting you're not guaranteed a roster spot. I can understand why Kaep would want to keep playing, the longer he's not on a roster the harder it will be to get on one. That's the thing about being a professional athlete though - it's a 12 month job and requires so much of your time and attention and quarterbacks have the most to carry. I kind of wonder if he would've been better off going full time into activism instead of doing the Tebow-esque media tight-roping to get a job. Personally I think he'd be a good backup on a team with a scheme fit, but beyond that I think he would get relegated to camp-arm and he wouldn't make the cut.

It's been revealed that the reason the Ravens didn't sign Kaepernick was because of resistance from owner Steve Bisciotti.  If it was revealed that Seahawks owner Paul Allen did the same thing over Pete Carroll, we would then officially have illegal collusion by the league owners, and I don't think the NFL wants that to deal with.

These owners are a dumb as a box of rocks.

All they had to do is simply give the Belichick answer: "He wasn't a fit for our style of offense. Next question." and literally repeat that 100 times as the followup. Except that they felt the need to assuage and kiss up to a handful of loudmouth fauxtriot fans who probably wouldn't spend the money for season tickets in the first place.

Stop conflating two things.

Saying Kaepernick stinks as a player does not equal you are against anything you think he stands for as a person.
I agree with Kaepernick views.
He is average at best. His numbers say he stinks
Would I covet him as player for the team I root for...no
Not because of his views but because he doesn't bring value.

Keep shouting at the clouds.
Or instead send emails to the GM of the team you think he belongs on and for what salary.
Everyone can come up with a complaint. Very few provide a solution.

If you stop watching football because of Kaepernick, you never really liked football
if you stopped watching the 49ers because of Kaepernick you never really liked the 49ers
if you stopped watching the 49ers because they stink you are a real fan
if you stopped watching Kaepernick because he stinks you are probably right

Most people are using Kaepernick to push their own agenda instead of what he was trying to draw attention to.

To say he is better than Bortles is like saying he is the smartest kid on the short bus.

Also, people seem to think that freedom of speech or the right to protest means that everyone has to agree with it. All it means is freedom from government persecution. It does not mean that people of opposing views can not express those views.

I agree for the most part, except that Bortles is hot trash. Kaep would definitely do no worse that Bortles in JAX.

That whole thing about him being better than Flacco is crap. Flacco has consistently been average to above average as a QB for 9 years and durability is a plus.

I would love to see a pro-Castro Pro-Che anti-America anti-flag Kaep playing in Miami . THAT would be entertainment. Much social justice could be accomplished there

15 solid minutes on Sportscenter yesterday devoted to Kap.
It's so touching how many people are crusading for an out of work football player to get a job.

mikaloyd: ZOMG guise guise ZOMG guise! Tannehill is hurt guise!

If anybody could make an offense that would work for Kaep, it'd be Gase.

drunk_bouncnbaloruber: It's been revealed that the reason the Ravens didn't sign Kaepernick was because of resistance from owner Steve Bisciotti.  If it was revealed that Seahawks owner Paul Allen did the same thing over Pete Carroll, we would then officially have illegal collusion by the league owners, and I don't think the NFL wants that to deal with.


That is not how collusion works.

There is no conspiracy. He's a mediocre QB that pissed off lots of folks and created a baggage problem for himself.

Teams want this...

Maybe he can play for his old college coach (Chris Ault) on the Milano Rhinos in the Italian Football League ??

The point is not to force someone to sign him. The point is to show that NFL owners are racist cowards who are pissing on your leg when they tell you this is strictly about football.

The fact that Sherman has anything to say about it at all is an example of what the situation is.  Sherman is extremely good at his job, so he is free to engage in some on-air bashing of NFL team owners within limits without suffering any negative consequences.  Kaepernick is stinky week-old garbage at his job, so when NFL teams are considering whether they want him and his baggage, they aren't exactly fighting for the pleasure of his company.
