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.

    • Wow....    how dumb can they get?   Conspiracy to obstruct justice for starters.   They text about it so there is a trail of evidence, and they take money out of a bank to make the payoffs, so the paper trail against the two is now even longer!   Someone is having a bad, bad day!   Their lawyers are going to be very busy!    
    • By now, we should be smart enough to just go look at the numbers, the deaths, the active cases, the recovered and make up our mind. You should not be reliant on media reporting for just the numbers aspect of it, just my take on it. I can bring up the news network that you did not mention as well and poke holes in them as to what they do not provide coverage on as well but this is not the thread for it.   I go here and just look at the numbers every day and make up my mind based on all the categories:   https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/   As my posts suggest, if we are smart about it and plan it out well, I do not see a reason for no football. 
    • its about the numbers, 22 players on the field isnt a lot but 70,000 in the stands is
    • The odds a vaccine are not high. I'm just going to say it (again) you're all being lied to at a incredible rate about this virus and the simplest answer, given that they're usually right, is that it's an election year.  The corporate media (comcast, disney ect) have an agenda and bias and the current admin doesn't share it. Why won't any of the ABC, NBC, CNN of the world report the death rate as opposed to saying "the death rate doesn't matter" and tabling the number? Why won't any of them talk about the border? Or what of New Mexico and their policy that's different from Arizona or Texas?  The virus spreading among people who aren't at severe risk is actually a good thing- sorry Tony Fauci (he needs fired for the lies, the spin, the just getting it wrong and then blaming people who notice this.. he sucks). That is if we'd like to get back to normal- which get's back to it's an election year. Now if you don't mind I'm going to check the Premier League standings, or any number of other leagues the world over that's not based out of a country with an election this year. The lies. The damned lies.   
    • Yes, and that's exactly what they did! https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/giants/ny-deandre-baker-quinton-dunbar-icloud-warrant-coverup-20200710-luc6jyesjjes5e3l56g4bpbnqm-story.html   Video evidence, Instagram DMs, testimony show payoff cover-up for DeAndre Baker and Quinton Dunbar, further implicate NFL players in crime. The warrant allegedly shows witness Dominic Johnson oversaw the payoff of DeAndre Baker’s and Quinton Dunbar’s four alleged victims at the office of Dunbar’s attorney, Michael Grieco.    Dominic Johnson Instagram DM: “I made them same n----s that said they got robbed come in and say them Boys ain’t have nothing to Do with it.” Baker DM to Johnson: "Yo I’m in the city now getting cash how much to bring ?? I’m tryna get there too u ASAP.”   Unnamed team sources, asked for comment on our breaking news, said they would not expect DeAndre Baker to remain on the Giants roster much longer.”
