    nah, they still trying to blackball him b/c they dont want flack from the coors chuggers and the "get out of amerikkka if you dont like it" type

    Kap, deserved at least a camp invite. He is better than a ton of these retread qbs they keep recycling but this feels like some participation trophy shit

    at this point, his stance is more than football. At one point, i really was hoping a team would pick him up, but when no one did, it was clear the message they were sending to him.

    So i dont want him playing for any of these owners. Now if he chooses to do so, then thats on him. I would still be rooting for him b/c i want to see him win, but bringing him in, this late in the season...what would a team realistically expect him to do? If he succeeds, then whatever racist owner that signed him will look like the one who "knew all along"...if he fails, then its "well, he wasnt as good as people said he was...why didnt he win with this team"

    I think Kapernick would have to go an offense specifically suited for his talents as a runner. He never was the type of QB who could consistently drop back and pass 30+ times a game. Football wise, Washington is probably a bad fit for him.

    Being able to run around like an asshole makes you at worst a good backup, and maybe even preferable to Joe Flacco.

    Bortles was benched? I feel like I got a pyrrhic victory, even if I technically lost the bet with @NML. My poor avatar.

    I don’t think it’s a Pyrrhic victory since I got to enjoy twice as many playoffs as I had the rest of this millennium

    Oh, you had a complete victory :laughing:

    My "victory" (seeing Bortles finally benched) was pyrrhic, because it came at great cost!

    I think he was benched more as a “well something has to change” move. His stats are pretty much the same as last year, with a much higher sack (and slightly higher turnover) rate. That’s because the line has been destroyed with injuries (they’ve started five different players at LT). Losing Lee day one and Fournette missing a bunch of time hasn’t helped. I think they are on their fourth string tight end?

    He’s still the same middle of the road QB

    Now they’ll draft some CAN MAKE ALL THE THROWS guy in the first round who will be bad for a couple years, and then average just as he’s about to be a FA. Overpay him, cut him after two seasons

    Rinse, repeat

    Yeah, the irony is that I think NOW is the time to stick with the guy, because he's relatively affordable :laughing:

    In total QBR, the four people directly behind him are Stafford, Eli, Keenum, and Carr, who all make like $10m a year more (and BORTLES has probably the worst offensive supporting cast in the NFL).

    Luckily I gave up after like week six or I’d be calling for heavenly Pete to save me from the “Jags should make a move for Eli” takes

    You mean the guy who has the same number of playoff wins as Brees since he entered the league?
