LOL. Does the author even watch football?

I wonder how much football you’ve watched. Kaepernick hasn’t been at his best the last 2+ seasons, that’s true. But even at his “mediocre-est” he’s better than a ton of guys signing elsewhere. In 2016, with nary an offensive weapon in sight, he managed 16 TDs against only 4 picks, with a robust 90.7 QB rating. Did he play winning football? No, but that’s in large part due to the horrible roster of the San Francisco 49ers. They were a dumpster fire riding the third car of a train wrecked on a bridge. Tom Brady couldn’t have gotten that team to .500 so it’s no wonder Kaepernick’s competence didn’t add up to more wins.

Nobody’s saying Kaepernick’s going to lead a bad team to the Super Bowl, but he’s certainly better than 90% of the backups out there. Heck, my Raiders just signed EJ Manuel and his 58.3 2016 QB rating, so there’s certainly room for Kaepernick in this league.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
