Would Irsay & NFL Owners bring Colin into the NFL?


Recommended Posts

This past week the nation has been engulfed with the tragic death of George Floyd. Sportscaster has reminded us all about the stand that Colin Kaepernick did in kneeling as a reminder that Black Lives Matter. He has been "black listed" by all the NFL owners ever since. The sportscasters are placing this in front of all sportscasters, players and citizens. As a Colt fan, I think Colin Kaepernick would be a solid 3rd QB. What do you think?

My thought is that enough time had passed - prior to the George Floyd incident - that he would have been brought onboard if he actually had better talent than those already in the league and those who would come cheaper.  That's my .02 without making this too political.  There have been other talents in the league with marks against them that have been added to rosters because their talent was worth the bad press.  I would suspect that having the best talent on the roster is the highest priority to some owners - regardless getting some bad views from the press or the fans.

 

I like our QB room right now.  No need to add Kaep.

I would not be in favor of signing him to The Colts. This has nothing to do with his kneeling or social justice work; I just don't think he's the right kind of QB for our scheme. 

Personally I think he was a decent QB in the right system, but he doesn't seem to me to be the type of QB that can thrive in any system, and more specifically ours. Add to this the fact that he has not played for several years and it's a hard pass for me.

I, unlike others, wish him no ill will, and hope he is successful & happy in life. However I think our QB room is better without him.

Great post. I feel the same. He hasn't played in what 3 years, that is a long time. We already have 4 QB's on the roster.

Didn’t he kind of ruin his last chance when the Ravens were about to sign him and his girlfriend posted that really dumb photo of Ray Lewis and their owner?

 

Part of me thinks he doesn’t really intend to ever play again.

This is where I am at as well. The Colts have no need to add Kaep.

 

Saying that, Minnesota signing him, makes some sense. Back up Kirk and bring a strong presence for the community to hopefully start healing.

 

Nothing will heal, until America steps up and is vocal. We can not let this continue to happen. 

 

Being not racist, isn't enough. It's time to be anti racist.

 

Regardless if it is family members or complete strangers. It's time to quit looking away and turning a deaf ear on racism. Confront it and help be a change.

Yeah if someone wants to protest something I have no problem with it. I personally would never kneel during the anthem but I don't dislike Kaep. Protesting for something you believe in is great in reality, I just don't like the Looting and the burning of businesses. That is wrong and taking it too far IMO. Why would anyone want to burn down a hard working man's business to prove a point? That is a major crime as well. Protest all you want but the other stuff is what people think is just wrong. I am glad the officer that killed George is being charged with murder. He should be.

I don't condone it either. However, peaceful protest don't work. They are "disruptive" according to guys like @Dingus McGirt

 

They are tired of being killed and nothing is done about it. Sadly, it is going to get worse before it gets better.

 

Police officer was charged with lowest degree murder(joke). He stayed on Floyd's neck for more than 2 minutes after they couldn't find a pulse. Other officers, nothing. TBH, they probably put him in jail to protect him. 

 

Until police officers face ramifications for their actions we will not be able to get past this.

Clearly happens to all races, but if you can't set there and be honest with yourself about the treatment of minority Americans, I can only come to the conclusion, you are 1 of those guys that will go by and shoot at some protesters or try to run them down.

Colts are already in a situation where they're going to have to cut one or two talented individuals that they seem to be "high" on.  Bringing another talented QB in, presumably to make a political statement, only to ultimately have him ride the pine.........seems like the wrong move.

 

Not sure Kap really wants to play either.  After the 2019 workout shenanigans I'd (if I were colts front office) need to be convinced of that first.  His actions dont exactly speak to a man desperate to get back in the league. 

 

We've already had a big name coach leave us at the altar,  and our superbowl aspirations evaporate when the face of the franchise pulled the pin.  Another high profile signing, who is probably (and rightly) more interested in his social justice work than colts football, to fill a third string position.......nah.  doesnt add up.

 

If he want to get back in the league his position should match his profile.  Starter or in competition to be the starter.  Not buried in an already crowded roster.

Yeah I am white as well and have never been in a black man's shoes so I have no idea how some African Americans feel. All I can say is racism of any kind is awful. You would think in 2020 we wouldn't have these problems. Regarding the officer he should've been charged with 1st degree murder IMO. I just read where he was being charged with murder wasn't sure on what degree.

You have to know the law. They can not prove or convict him of murder 1 cause you can't prove intent on murder. You can prove the cop is a worthless *, police brutality. He had to be charged accordingly if you want a conviction.

It's not racism. It's police brutality, period. It doesn't matter what color the person under the knee is. It should not be tolerated and people need to be held accountable

He would get the max anyways if he's never been convicted of a crime. There's a thing called mitigating and aggravating circumstances. Might be in the middle.

Thank you. I have been offf most of any kind of Internet the last two days. I blocked Stephen holder. I don’t want my sports muddled with politics. I haves enoygh stress in my life. Sports is supposed to be a way to get away from things. Your not going to change anyone’s views on politics. All it does is cause arguments.

    • FWIW I thought this from last weeks mail bag was funny because it seems to support what both you and I are saying.  If what I understand your point being is the dline including Buckner played similarly well both games and my belief that 3techs don’t need to record sacks and tfls to be dominant. : “I can understand why fans who watched last Sunday's opener against the Jaguars, and then checked out the box score afterwards, might come away with the conclusion that DeForest Buckner didn't have much of an impact on the game. After all, the Colts traded away their 13th-overall pick in this year's NFL Draft to acquire Buckner, and then immediately handed him a huge contract extension, so expectations are high. I get that. But looking back at the film, I think what's evident is Buckner deserves a little bit more credit beyond his stat-sheet line of six tackles (one for a loss). As the defensive line started to gel in the second half — that's when it limited Jacksonville to six combined rushing yards and had three of its four sacks — you began to feel Buckner much more consistently, and the attention placed on him allowed for others (I thought linebacker Bobby Okereke was fantastic in the second half) to make plays. Buckner also had the eighth-best week among all NFL interior defensive linemen in run stop win rate in Week 1, according to ESPN. Now, moving forward, of course you want to see more of those impact-type plays out of Buckner — sacks, big run stuffs, forced fumbles, defensive touchdowns, etc. But I think it's also important to to remember there are other ways for the three-tech to impact the game, and Buckner did a pretty good job of that last Sunday.”  
    • I’m a little surprised you don’t see a difference in dline play between  the two games.  I don’t have access to any of the services but I would suspect that The grades are significantly higher for the dline in Sunday compared to the Jax game.   but Sunday was even more dominant than i thought, and I thought it was dominant.  Between the opening drive during which MN gained 75 and scored a FG and their last meaningless drive for 75 yds and a TD, the Colts gave up a total of 25 other yds.    against Jax, we gave up around 60 yds rushing in the 1st half and the dline looked less than dominant then imo.  Jax had 5 of 8 drives during which they scored if you throw out the kneel downs at the end of each half.   Percentage of  tackles and sacks for linemen were very similar in both games.  You said that colts had more pressures during the mn game and I said probably a function of Jax short passing attack.   buckner had 6 tackles v Jax and 3 v mn.  He had no sacks v Jax but 1.5 tfl.  He had 1.5 sacks v mn but no other tfl.  Statistically counting sacks, tackles, and tfl he was “better” V Jax.  But you probably don’t think He was better Iwould suspect.   i would be shocked if the dline didn’t grade out higher v. Mn than Jax even though the tackles, tfl, and sacks were very similar over all.   im sure teams keep advanced stats that show a clearer pic of when a d lineman wins or loses on each Play that doesn’t necessarily match easier to see stats like tackles, etc.   do you have access to the grades?  I’d really be interested in the units grades in the two games.   i agree there can be other factors like obviously opponent strength and the play of LBs and dbs.  And mn looks like they might suck pretty bad surprisingly to me.  I think the main problem with lasts weeks game imo is the LBs are weak in coverage and Indy is as a result susceptible to short passing attacks.     that being said, rarely do dlines dominate the LOs like the colts did.   i maintain that a guy like Buckner and dts in general could have nit recorded a sack, had only a couple of tackles and be more dominant than In a game where he recorded a few tackles and a couple of sacks.
