Kaepernick

Post by jltrent » Fri Nov 15, 2019 6:57 am

He is getting a private workout from the NFL to try to get back in play. With his 7 yr. career record at 42 wins and 69 loses plus all the negative baggage he carries will he get a contract offer or even deserve one? Mod if this is not appropriate for your board just delete, I understand no problem here.

Some owner out there is asking himself how much money he can make by bringing on the single biggest icon of virtue signaling. He has done well for Nike.

Probably one of the biggest discracees to the NFL.

I kind of hope he gets a shot and is a complete failure. Then we can maybe quit hearing about him.

I was really disappointed to see Chick fil a gave into the PC police. I hope this isn’t the start of them backing off from the values their founder had.

The NFL wouldn't play by the rules Keapernick wanted. It had to do with him wanting lots of press coverage. So he moved to another location some 30 miles away with little to no notice. The press moved with him but it is doubtful how many from the NFL made the move.

Bombers and Steel City clash in the 107th Grey Cup this coming Sunday. Football in the country that invented it with the appropriate number of players on the proper sized field. Tune in for your viewing pleasure. 8)

Reading today seems they are crawfishing somewhat.

Based on merit this is my evaluation of Kaeprnick.
Great Arm and mechanics. He threw out first pitch at MLB game in the mid 90s for a strike.
A running QB that has lost a step as all do with age.
Will take 6 months for him to learn and feel comfortable in a new team's system.
In some locker rooms he could be viewed as a hero leader, but in many more of a distraction.
He may not have the love of the game required. Andrew Luck lost his and retired at 29.
He is worth a 1 yr 6 million dollar "Prove It" contract.
But as a GM, 2 million spent on developing a young QB would be a more appealing option.

I enjoy watching NFL football and won't let a few bad apples ruin it for me.
I get more upset by the Refs than any of the players.
I would enjoy seeing Da Bears sign Kaepernick and watching the Vikings linebackers and D-line
getting their hands on him in December.

Nobody is going to sign him. The workout was staged by the NFL to attempt to head off a lawsuit. Kaepernick will probably sue and have a strong case. The league has historically had no problem with hiring murderers, rapists, child abusers, etc.
