Kaepernick

Recommended Posts

Kaepernick to the steelers?  I can't believe some people are saying this. How would he fit in on this team with AV protecting him after he protests? Am I missing something in all this? It just doesn't make sense from what I remember.

I think it would be a great move for you guys if he looks good in his workout. 
 

The way your defence is playing it would be such a waste to not try and improve at QB because Rudolph is horrendous and getting people hurt with his off target throws

I'm not against it tbh his mobility could help the run game...I'll just have to mute Steelers twitter for about a month tho

i am a firm believer we should snap kaep up after ben retires 

without delving too much in to the anthem discussion, because let’s not, politically i am quite a progressive guy so i was a supporter of the protests - my gripe was i always figured that it’s a real hard task to revamp your offense to fit around a guy who has that skill set when you don’t have it already

however

the way that baltimore and houston have done that with their offenses has completely proven me wrong on that front so i would jump at the chance - we’d get a cheap and proven starter we can rebuild around and maximise the potential of this defense after ben retires and i’m here for that

did the steelers even attend this workout for Kaepernick? If they signed him now, at least he would have some additional time to get the playbook .  No idea what to expect, wait and see.

in regards to big al btw, from memory around the time of the protests he said he went out and stood not because of any personal opposition to kaepernick but more because he had buddies texting him telling him he should do it and didn’t want to let them down, i doubt it would cause much locker room controversy, especially given that al is a really nice guy and doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy to kick up a fuss about it

also not to mention the protests were not about the flag or the military to begin with and al’s a smart guy and knows that

You guys may wake up when Duck Hodges has to start and Paxton Lynch is the backup.  I would take Kaepernick in a second over Lynch

where is Rudolph then? Is he on IR when the above occurs? If they bring in Kaepernick, then fichner won't have an excuse to make the QB pass under 5 yards all the time either.

I’d sign him yesterday. He’s only 32. I’d sign him, ease him(quickly lol) into the starting role this year. His mobility would help the o-line and run game. His passing isn’t worse than Rudolph’s. He had a huge arm, I bet he can still sling it. If he plays well, keep him around to compete and push Ben. Maybe he beats him out and we can move away from Ben’s massive deal. Maybe Ben beats Kaep and we have a talented backup or trade asset. Rudolph can keep developing, or Duck can beat him out. The Minkah shakeup helped, try it again.

Sexaul abuse. Violence.  Racism. Mental, social , behavioral disorders (like AB clearly has) ...these are the things that deter me from prosoects...  so yes Kaepernick should be in the minds of the front office and they should get him.

Mason is not some 1st rd pick, so I don't see why they should be loyal to him right now. if Colin is a better option they should look into it. I'm not against duck getting a shot if Mason stinks it up again..he should be on a short lease since we're trying to get a WC

I think they need to sign him, but if they do it comes with having to cut AV.  (not a big loss anyways)

 

Why would they have to cut AV? Can the dude not be on the same team with someone he may not see eye to eye on everything?
