I'm sure the fact that he was only good with one coach's offense strategy wasn't a factor

No one wants to give him a job. The reasons why don't matter. Get over it.

Yea, Colon isn't getting a job because he's a shiatty QB, not because of his politicks

If you want a truly puzzling unsigned free agent that *might* be an actual 'proof of political fallout', look to his former teammate Eric Reid

abhorrent1: No one wants to give him a job. The reasons why don't matter. Get over it.

The reasons why matter to lawyers involved in his collusion lawsuit, but I agree with you. He's not owed a job in the NFL, if the owners don't want the potential hassle of dealing with him, oh well. I was on board with what he was doing until he showed that he was the NFL equivalent of a 19-year old reading Atlas Shrugged and thinking they know all there is about economics.

I appreciate your feedback, and I will actually take it into account.

But, because of where most people's *heads* happen to be in regard to Mr Kaepernick, I think I'll stay with it.

He's at best a situational backup with phenomenal athleticism and a low IQ. That's not good for coming off the bench, and since he can't hit the broad side of a barn with a pass (from inside the barn, with the door mostly shut) with any reliability, it's really not a surprise he remains unsigned

Given that Greg Hardy, Ray Lewis etc managed to get multiple years of contracts after the fact shows how talent and skill can overcome baggage.

it's when you don't actually have them that it becomes a 'PR issue'

Except with Hardy and Lewis, the president didn't weigh in and make it a front-page issue for weeks on end

Granted, Kaepernick isn't a great QB, but when the "leader" of our country weighs in and threatens the livelihood of billionaire white owners, it might cause a few issues

No, not a mystery, but a 'mystery' as it were

He's the best safety in Free Agency, bar none. Who would you put ahead of him? Not Morgan Burnett, now of Steeler colors.

*Maybe* you could argue Joyner, but he's got the non-exclusive tag from LA.

Otherwise, next up would be ... Vaccaro? Ward? Corey Graham?

None are even all that close to the versatility OR performance level

How I see things in a NFL teams offices regarding Kaep.

Owner: Hey coach/GM guy, if we sign Kaepernick would he be good enough to turn us into a playoff team and make us perrenial threats in our division.

Coach: probably not, w9uld make a decent backup or short term guy until we draft who will fit the system we want to run though.

Owner: Fark it, not worth the headache. I'll retread player X this year instead. Fewer headaches.

Look, you can claim that it's a team's prerogative to avoid the backlash among their racist and stupid (and fake-patriotic) fanbases, which they've been cultivating for years with their own fake patriotism and fake concern about anything.

But you don't get to also pretend it's for other reasons and that it's completely illegitimate to call them out for being the cowards and racist-coddling little b*tches they are.

The facts are that both of those guys are better than several starters in the league, and no one viewed them as malcontents or lazy or anything other than very good players until they got involved in social activism. Then the smear campaigns started.

Enjoy kowtowing to Trump fans, NFL. It's working SO well for everyone else.

Of those 3...No.

Manziel has never been good in the NFL.

Gabbert at least fakes it well if you give him a clean pocket. If he feels no rush, he reads the field and makes good throws. If the pocket breaks down, or if he THINKS he's about to get dirty...chuck it in the 'fark it' bucket.

Asswelder...meh. Mid-tier backup at best. Bad decision making and questionable mechanics & footwork. Regardless of his size, those are hard to coach out, even if he 'can make all the throws'.

All 4 of them could be unemployed and I'd be OK.

2 of them have no PR hit. Manziel is as big a train wreck as Colon is. Who does Johnny play for, again?

just keep in mind when you decide that the nfl is so terribly racist and that this isnt, yet another attempt at decisive bullshiat from the media and those who wish to split, divide and destroy this country, trump also included. (looking at you media, fox, msnbc, cnn, wapo, huffpo, all of that trash.

That Mike Vick got a 2nd chance in the nfl...and that fool killed dogs!

If you make a poor choice, own it, pay the penalty and then move on to resitution, rebuild your life, rebuild your career...and make damn sure that your girlfriend isnt out there portraying a potential employer and a behind the scenes advocate for your getting a job with that organization, as farking slave owner and slave.

Get bent you idiot...everyone involved in the entertainment business understands there are 2 paths when you create controversy....own it, say your sorry and try to repair...or keep farking the dead horse and see yourself gone from the entertainment sector...Sports, most of all, is a prime example of this.

I may be mistaken, but none of them play for any team at the moment.

Why those three -- especially Manziel, due to the PR circus that would follow -- would rate workouts for teams and Kaep would *not* tells you (or me, at least) all one needs to know: sub-average QBs with issues (in whatever form) are getting calls for workouts when Kaep isn't.  I'm not saying Kaep is the best available QB, but he's a damn sight better than those three that *are* getting looks.

It's as if owners just don't want to put the best product on the field -- just the least controversial product.  If it costs them some wins, that's okay, right?  Because parity.

Here's the part you're missing, for whatever reason:

Colon is JUST as sub-average a QB as they are. In some ways, way WORSE. The tape don't lie

Ask people that break down film for a living...your Gregg Cosell, your Andy Benoit, etc...and look at what they say on the matter

Kap is BAD, and is at best a back up, and that's only if you have a main system that has an erratic, dumb, inaccurrate, and one-read-RUN offense so he'd fit in as the seamless #2

Guess how many offenses fit that bill?

The same number of teams / coaches that have brought Kap in for a workout

xaks: just_intonation: I may be mistaken, but none of them play for any team at the moment.

Why those three -- especially Manziel, due to the PR circus that would follow -- would rate workouts for teams and Kaep would *not* tells you (or me, at least) all one needs to know: sub-average QBs with issues (in whatever form) are getting calls for workouts when Kaep isn't.  I'm not saying Kaep is the best available QB, but he's a damn sight better than those three that *are* getting looks.

It's as if owners just don't want to put the best product on the field -- just the least controversial product.  If it costs them some wins, that's okay, right?  Because parity

Here's the part you're missing, for whatever reason:

Colon is JUST as sub-average a QB as they are. In some ways, way WORSE. The tape don't lie

Ask people that break down film for a living...your Gregg Cosell, your Andy Benoit, etc...and look at what they say on the matter

Kap is BAD, and is at best a back up, and that's only if you have a main system that has an erratic, dumb, inaccurrate, and one-read-RUN offense so he'd fit in as the seamless #2

Guess how many offenses fit that bill?

The same number of teams / coaches that have brought Kap in for a workout


If they're all equally bad, then they should be getting equal opportunities. That's not what's happening.  It looks very suspicious at this point. That's all I'm saying.

They ARE

Kap's worse than they are

If you want a suspicious looking one, look at Eric Reid. HIM being unsigned is a farking joke. He's the best safety FA and he's persona non grata
