More conjecture just what we need

a starter in whos offense though?  some teams have guys they just drafted, or guys that are just in year 2 or 3 and are still developing and they are building teams around these players, they aren't going to just up and drop the team plan for the last 1-3 years because Colin Kaepernick needs job.

Other teams may not have an offense that is tailored to the type of QB he is...if you put him on the Bears offense this year he would suck. their line sucks, his arm and accuracy sucks, and bears have no real skilled WR threat this year...so in just that example alone good luck running for your life every play and lasting the season. is a team like the Bears supposed to forget about the guy they just drafted #2 overall also an sign him? how would that make any sense? is he better than Glennon as an individual player, probably, sure. doesnt fit though

so yes he may be better then this guy or that guy straight up comparison wise, Football is still a team game, and you cant just drop a QB like him in ANY team out there an run with it and it be a success. This is what a lot of people are just not understanding and all they are doing is saying " well he's better than this guy" why sint he signed..its pretty easy to figure out if you look at the big picture

NFL has proven decade after decade if you can play and teams feel you can win them games or fit in their future they will sign you no matter what you've done. guys have killed people, and got contracts. nuff said

was going to get a contract but instead social media and the people he chose to be associated with ultimately cost him a chance. Fair or not, sometimes the people you chose to be with, things you post on social media can effect your life..Happens to people every day...its not a conspiracy

Yeah, Kaepernick sucks too bad to play, which is definitely why the Bill's signed Joe frickin' Webb instead.

Seriously fellas, the list of guys who have committed terrible crimes that are on rosters is long as hell. The list of Qb's that are tons worse than Kaepernick is miles long. We can pretend that Kaepernick is just so awful that he can't find a job, yet Ryan Fitzpatrick can. That's cool. Even cooler? Using Ray Lewis as a point on how much character matters. LMFAO.

But yes, the NFL is totally above board. You guys know that! It is on the up and up! Now, can we get back to honoring the military with million dollar fly-by's every game so we can forget that we still have a war that going on for close to 2 decades at this point? That isn't at all like propaganda. Nope, not at all. Having the temerity to not stand to honor the national anthem? That's a real travesty. Now let's cheer for some rapists!

Dan Orvlosky
Chase Daniel

Matt Schaub
EJ Manuel
Ryan Nassib
Kellon Clemmons
Landry Jones
Matt McGloin


All employed.

Shall we go through the list of felons?

Amazing the hate for a guy who makes a political statement you disagree with. Wish that sort of judgment were applied fairly towards people that have actually hurt people.

Sick, these guys. Just sick. Why don't they respect the flag. Don't they know that their ancestors died to protect this flag in the revolutionary..... errr wait. War of 18...... er, no. Civil..... not so much. WW!? Nope. WW2? Kinda, in a segregated way. Vietnam. That's the ticket. Vietnam, their ancestors fought to protect the flag in Vietnam.

I just don't get why african americans don't have the same pride in the spirit of the revolution as whites do. It just doesn't make any sense. I mean, it isn't like Colin kaepernick has been shot by a cop, so why should he care?

Again, back to our regular military jet fly by's and military halftime reunions. Maybe another Pat Tillman special. Oh, wait, he didn't support bullshit propoganda.
