  1. Geno should be used to doing that, though...
  2. This article says otherwise: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2700218-nfl1000-is-colin-kaepernick-still-starting-quarterback-material-in-the-nfl It's author started from your "he used to be good but he sucks now" premise, BTW; looking at Kaepernick's numbers and, especially, looking at the game film from last year convinced him otherwise.
  3. He played hurt in 2015 and only played 9 games; in 2016 he was hurt the first 4 games before playing and starting the last 12 games. The 7 games he missed in 2015 and the 4 games he missed in 2016 were started by Gabbert. Playing hurt in 2015 he posted his career worst passer rating, 78.9; his passer rating in 2016 was 90.2. For his career he has a 60% completion rate, his yds per attempt is 7.3 which is only exceeded by the following starting QBs in the league: Wilson, Brees, Roethlisberger, Cousins, Brady, Ryan, Newton, Rodgers and Rivers. Carson Palmer and Andy Dalton have the same yds/att as Kaepernick. His career passer rating is only exceeded by Wilson, Brees, Roethlisberger, Cousins, Brady, Ryan, Rodgers and Rivers. Last year he threw 16 TDs vs. 4 picks in 12 games; in 2015 he threw 6 TDs and 5 INTs in the 9 games he played. So please show us how he is "really bad" by any objective measure.
  4. Amari Cooper

    They mentioned on thursday night that Cooper is currently leading the league in dropped passes...
  5. How does not starting Petty hurt the Jets?

    And, despite this, he was better than Petty with the same amount of time in the offense under Todd Bowles and without the redshirt year free pass Petty had. For all of the people touting Petty's potential greatness, he could not beat out Geno Smith... and despite McCown's pedestrian at best track record, Petty has not beat him out either. It's hard believing him to have franchise QB potential when he cannot compete at a level that compels the team to take him off the bench and put him on the field...and even when he has, by necessity, been on the field he has not lived up to the hype.
  6. The Board Just Got Very Funny

    When he can stay on the field. IND's cupboard was nearly as bare as ours when they moved on from Peyton Manning. Yes; they got Luck and yes; he immediately improved their record his rookie year... but the fact that they never improved the defense, never got a running game and had an o-line that made him a target is the reason he has spent more time injured than not last couple of years and when his shoulder heals enough for him to play...none of those things are fixed. Having an elite QB doesn't help you if the rest of the team only hastens his demise because the D cant stop anyone and the o-line cant block worth a damn. GB has been playing russian roulette with Rodgers' health since they won the SB he has receivers but o-line is garbage and no running game means he is all they have... a team so one dimensional they can't even have their play fakes respected by opposing defenses. We dont want to get an elite QB and then get him killed or concussed out of the league in 4 years or less which is what will happen if we cant build or buy an o-line that can both run and pass block. No matter how elite the quarter back we get might be.
  7. Some said the same thing about Johnny Manziel...how'd that work out? Not saying Rosen is Manziel...but his arrogance does raise that spectre...
  8. I'm sure he will not sleep well tonight because you feel this way...
  9. You keep making the claim that he sucks... prove it. Show us the numbers.
  10. As if you have the sack to stand for anything as he stood for this...but *he* is the gutless one...
  11. It is amazing how you cannot make a single quantitative argument based on his play for not hiring him. You keep going to political nonsense. There is no football argument for not signing him to be a backup QB; people make claims that he is mediocre...while less than mediocre QBs like Fitz and McCown and Blaine Gabbert and others are who not as good...by any and all measures... have jobs. There are not 64 QBs better than Kaepernick. There aren't even 32 QBs better than Kaepernick. When this is pointed out, the "he's not signed because he's not a good enough QB" argument immediately goes to T-shirts and socks and other subjective political nonsense that we've all agreed to keep out of this forum. If there is a FOOTBALL argument to be made against him, can someone...ANYONE...make it?
  12. Prove he is not focused on football. People keep saying this with no evidence to support it.
  13. He has been saying since before the end of last season that he would stand for the National Anthem this year.....so what circus are you referring to?
  14. And you came to this conclusion how, exactly? Tell us how you quantified this.
  15. Nothing you are prepared to recognize or acknowledge...and I'm fine with that. I'm bowing out.
