He refused to stand for the anthem,
"It isn't right' He did declare,
So he started quoting Malcolm X,
And afro'd up his hair.

His stance riled up the crowd,
They booed and cursed his name,
But the reason Colin's out of work,
Is that he only won 2 games.

And yet, the Jets signed Josh McCown to be their likely starter and he won zero games last year. Kaep's age, talent and production are way above Josh F. McCown.

The Jets are a special case cause they're actually trying to tank

Kaepernick's problem is that he's not good enough to unseat a franchise QB but he's too good to play for a tanking team like the Jets that is trying to rebuild

The problem is that no matter what he's a distraction, and the last thing you want is a distraction from your backup qb. The backup qb is supposed to be the most squeaky clean player on the team. Most teams probably don't view him as the guy they are willing to invest in to start for them, and don't want him as a backup. If he doesn't get signed now, he will get signed during the season when a starter goes down. There's just no reason to have him on the roster now as a backup.


Yup. One major issue with any team that signs him is that he quickly becomes the biggest media story on the team. No team wants the guy getting the most attention to be a backup who never plays, regardless of position. They're also scared that if they sign him and it doesn't work out then his activist backers will come out of the woodwork and start accusing them of racism. No team wants to sign him and then be featured on the media for not playing him, or have the headline "Is Team A racist for not playing Kaepernick?" flying around the news media.
Not changing this sig until the Knicks win the NBA Championship! Started...4/23/2011? Or was it 2010?

Attention
Quality knee pad (right one only)
A comfortable bench
It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
