#1 Bah! Humbug! IIRC, Kaepernick had one decent year when the SF 49'ers instituted the RPO (Run/Pass Option) offensive scheme and the opposing defenses didn't have a good handle on it.** Soon opposing defenses developed schemes for it (because it was a fairly common College football offense) and Kap-er-dummy started fading into backbench irrelevance.

**Never was impressed with the RPO because I watched a lot of Option football played by Oklahoma in the 'Wishbone Era'. The plan everybody ended up was "Make the quarterback run with the ball and tackle him until he breaks -- sooner or later..." You really don't see any old RPO quarterbacks, if you get what I mean.

#2 Lets invite cancer into the locker-room so he and his wife can create more divisive press moments. Genius.

#3 A Solar Eclipse, or, The Natural

An accident victim demands
His chance with the Astros. The stands
Full of fans groan with glee
A he falls to one knee
And still hauls in a drive... with no hands.

#4 "As," dammit, as in, "as if it mattered."

COLIN KAEPERNICK SAYS HILLARY CLINTON SHOULD BE IN JAIL

"I mean, you have Hillary who's called black teens or black kids super-predators.

You have Donald Trump who's openly racist.

I mean, we have a presidential candidate (Hillary) who's deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn't make sense to me, because if that was any other person, you'd be in prison.

So what is this country really standing for?"

#6 ..you get someone who can't see beyond his racist glasses at the world and can't put the obvious existence of a multi-tiered justice system based upon whether you are a member of the Inner Party, the Outer Party or just a prole.

#7 Well, this is only because Mark Davis opened his mouth... He also pays for this haircut

#8 So what is this country really standing for?

The flag, anthem, the vote and to sing praises to God.

#10 Al Davis must be thrilled (somewhere?) that his kid is creepier looking than him.

#11 I mourned the passing of Al Davis. I hoped that his son Mark would carry on with the Commitment to Excellence. These days I just don't pay much attention.

#12 NFL? No Firearms League? No, I don't watch that...

#13 -Ref #7: Oh my Gods! That's actually Al Davis' son. I can remember when the Raiders were on top of the world and Al Davis was a god. Let'em sign Kaepernick and good luck with that.

#14 No Firearms League?

I thought it was the National Felons League?

#15 Colin Kaepernick did lead the 49ers to a 2-14 record in his last season, so there is that to recommend him.

#17 2 games more than a dead man

So you are saying he is not the worst possible choice.

#18 If the dead man satisfies the "Rooney Rule," maybe not.

#19 
The NFL could be giving out free season tickets and I still would not go to or watch a game.

They shot themselves in the A$$ with all their allowed Kneeling and disrespect to America done by their $$ Millionaire Player race pimps.
