    I'll say one thing for Kaepernick, they replayed Super Bowl 47 on NFL Network a few nights ago and man, he really balled out in that game. If not for some god-awful playcalling on the 49ers final four plays, they might have won the game and he would certainly have been the MVP. 

    But he also fell from "5 yards away from winning the Super Bowl" to "benched in favor of Blaine Gabbert." That's quite a fall in a three-year stretch. And when he got a chance to play in 2016, he often looked disinterested out there. But despite going 1-10 as a starter that year, he really didn't play that bad if ya look at his stats. 

    I contend that he's not being colluded against. Teams just don't want the headache and circus that would come with signing him. I actually think the same thing happened to Tebow. You'd be hard-pressed to find a guy that would work harder and represent your team in the community as well as Tebow. But do you really want the Skip Bayless show setting up shop outside your training camp to cover (and obsess over) your second-string QB? I guess not.

  • He said he'd play in the AAF for $20 million or more.

    I guess he really does think he's pretty awesome.

    “A person with knowledge of the conversation tells The Associated Press that the new Alliance of American Football spoke with Colin Kaepernick during its development about joining the league. But Kaepernick wanted $20 million or more to consider playing with the league that had its debut last weekend. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because neither side has publicly acknowledged such talks.”

    and probably a lot.  Good for him.  
  • Yes. Things have worked out very well for Kap- better than they ever could have throwing a football that's for sure.

    I wonder what the settlement was...cause the burden of proof was on Kaep and Reid and it didn't look like they were going to meet it.

    They colluded and paid some hush money.  My guess is that he got some and they donated some. 
    I still root for him.
    (And fuck no he should not have played in the AAS or whatever that abbreviation is for less than the NFL pays.  Dude is much smarter than that.)
    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    And now Kaep joins Sam Bradford atop the list of all-time mediocre QB's to make hundreds of millions of dollars from the NFL.  I never said he was dumb.
