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.

Why would any private business organization bring in such a disruptive influence to be, essentially, a scout team quarterback?

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.

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.

    • Correct.   i don’t think Luck is EVER coming back. Nor do I want him back nor should the team want him back. He left this team high and dry less than10 days before the start of the regular season. If I was an owner or a coach, I wouldn’t want him back unless there were some major stipulations added to his contract. Such as 100 percent reimbursement for all salaries paid from the time he was drafted if he were to retire again too close to the season. Put a cut off date around March 30th. Anything after that, he has to reimburse as stated above. Then and only then would I take him back
    • He's got plenty of money.   I think the only way he would come back is if he had the itch to play and thought he could win.   Maybe if Rivers and the Colts have a good season the chance at winning would be there.   Very doubtful that he ever plays again.   I'd give it a 10% chance.
    • You are reading it incorrectly.  He is saying that he said he was the first to say that Luck's injury (shoulder) was due to a snowboarding accident and everyone laughed at him.  He then says that he said, 3 weeks before Luck retired, that Luck was going to retire.  
    • Snowboarding is an expensive recreational activity - weed is costly.
    • Reich intends to pit the two against one another in what many would consider Vinatieri's specialty: high-stress situations. The Colts coach explained that he will do his best to fabricate those situations during and after practice. One can be sure that without the added test of preseason games, the kickers' performance during these high-stress situations will go a long way in determining who wins the competition.   “They'll get all of their normal routines," Reich said. "But as a team, we'll create more team atmosphere, team kicking drills that will be heightened and weighted more heavily in the kicking competition."  Though Reich didn’t submit a “favorite” to win the battle, McLaughlin surely has the leg up in that he’s a somewhat proven NFL commodity. Last season, the undrafted free agent performed admirably in what amounted to a four-game audition with the Colts after Vinatieri succumbed to injury. Arriving in Indianapolis in the high-pressure role of replacing the kicker many consider the greatest of all time, McLaughlin drilled 5-of-6 field goals and all 11 of his extra points in those games. His performance in Vinatieri’s stead earned him a one-year contract with the Colts immediately following the season.    Of course, the man they call “Hot Rod” brings an impressive resume to the battle as well. During four years at SEC powerhouse Georgia, Blankenship was a model of accuracy and consistency. He connected on all 200 of his extra points and finished his Bulldog career an 82.5% field goal kicker and the school’s all-time leading scorer.  For his efforts -- and to keep him away from other teams -- the Colts handed Blankenship a $20,000 signing bonus, a hefty number among undrafted free agents. Despite McLaughlin’s incumbent status, Blankenship’s price tag and Reich comments foretell would should be an equal and open competition for the job.    https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2020/07/29/colts-vinatieri-era-indy-seemingly-over-mclaughlin-blankenship-battle-job/5536851002/
