Colin Kaepernick Misses NFL Workout

Recommended Posts

Our 3rd string hs qb could throw a better ball to recievers running routes vs air . 

 

I do wish teams were givin the chance to have Kap run plays they wanted like any other nfl workout . It became obvious this was about publicity and not about playing football . I do wish he got a shot just to end the debate if he belongs in the nfl talent wise or not .

He's extremely annoying because he talks as if he was a great QB that would help a team win now.  He was about as good as Brissett.   I'm not saying their games were similar, just that their value was about the same.  If Brissett brought this much negative attention, would any team sign him?   Probably not.

Here’s the bottom line. For a 30 something back up QB, it’s not worth dividing your locker room or fan base  . At this point , his talent isn’t on par with the controversy . It’s a business decision by the teams. The NFL settled  with him, and provided an unprecedented workout. 
He’s been his own worst enemy in terms of getting hired, and it’s my opinion that his current talent level  is very mediocre . My model for a great back up QB is Earl Morrall or RG III in Baltimore .

Good thoughts. It’s always good to get balance, and other perspectives.

No doubt. He really did it to himself. I really think that the Ravens, Steve Bisciotti and John Harbaugh , were going to sign him as a back up QB. Half the fans were up in arms, but I think it was going to happen. Then his girlfriend posts an inappropriate picture of Mr Bisciotti and Ray. Take out the politics, just look at the stupidity from the business angle for playing football.

Yep.  Totally self-inflicted.  

He did it again.   25 teams spent money to go see his workout.   I'm guessing an average of 2 people per team.   Airfare, hotel, meals.  Maybe $3500 per team.  Even though the owners are extremely rich, no one likes wasting money.

More over, no team (or the NFL / Game) likes a single player to dictate how things will be run.

 

It was a media publicity stunt, in the end. No matter the original purpose.

Possibly referring to this?

 

 

 

I saw that, but I didn't hear any "venom about the racist NFL". I mean, if one is going to accuse him with strong words like "spewing venom about the racist NFL", I hope there's at least something to back that up.

That's why I said possibly.

 

Would be nice if OP gave a link to the remarks referenced.

He just wants attention and the constant justification and rationalization to be somebody who does nothing. If I’m wrong then I agree with the person who said he’s just negative. He’s like a guy (again my second opinion here) who we all have in our lives who is right about pretty much everything he talks about, but all he talks about is nonsense that he can’t do as much as he says he can about. He talks about politics, how he got screwed over a hundred years ago, why he’s not rich etc. And he’s really not wrong but he’s REALLY NEGATIVE and it’s just like shut up this is why I don’t hang out with you anymore. It’s why nobody does. Then when we see you in town and think hey there’s ole boy and speak we’re trying to leave from around you within 5 minutes because you’re whining about something in some other town that has nothing to do with you.

I’m wondering if Kap is just playing the NFL.

  I saw Kap recently signed a new deal with Nike, and that Nike’s sales/stock have been affected positively thru the recent Kap “interest.”

  Is this all just a “hype” thing for promotion?  Does Kap really have intentions to play again in the NFL?

  Something is off here.

The aggressive, militant tone won’t help his cause with NFL execs.

I just saw that video lol what??? Drawbacks that have nothing to do with football are taken into account with every good player. Tebow, Favre, every good diva WR that ever lived etc. Are people who don’t want Tebow Christianitsts :thinking:

It’s like when a person becomes famous like the Kardashians,  they can’t get a legitimate job anymore, they have to become professional celebrities and that’s what he is now. His best bet is to make his charities his life’s work and stay relevant as a celebrity by getting attention now and then.  I think his girlfriend knows a  thing or 2 about that.

    • Love a better QB funny
    • Ballard is a Polian clone and never going to spend the money on players we actually need.
    • Now this is a thread I will love to keep tabs on! I'm already opting out of the idea of taking a WR at 13 even if Lamb or Juedy is there. There looks like a TON of talent to be nabbed between our 34th pick until our 4th rounder. As of now I really like KJ Hill, Peoples-Jones, Pittman, and Gandy-Golden. All will probably be available by our 44th pick, some may last much longer.   And those are names were just my favorite. Aiyuk and Tyler Johnson look pretty good too. Lots of value this year at WR. 
    • I just clarify it's not just him, it's also where he's drafted. And as I said, what to do at pick 34 is a mystery to me so maybe someone like him is the right choice, afterall. I would concede that this early I don't have much to go off of. The bits I had seen of him I was concerned about some body catches and thought he didn't look explosive. His balance looked insane though iirc, definitely can slide out of a tackle. I also try to give players projected in the top 3 round a good look at some point especially if they are in a position of need, so I'm sure I'll watch some play by play stuff on him and may feel different. I think he's great, don't get me wrong, but I like someone like KJ Hill or Donovan Peoples-Jones just as much and they are going in the late second not late 1st/early second. Just my 2 cents.
    • Don't you think losing a pro bowl QB before the start of the season might be part of the problem?
