Colin Kaepernick
Last QB at the altar
Denver is calling . . .

With Robert Griffin the III nearing a deal with Cleveland, the Broncos are down to the last guy standing. Colin Kaepernick. This certainly puts the 49ers in a better position than before RG III was snapped up. And it also commences the death of RG III’s career. Cleveland is the burial ground for many a decent QB, and many more mediocre ones. Hard to think things will get real peachy real soon, although I will say Hue Jackson is very good at getting blood from a turnip in the way of generating offense.

Funny thing is, with Kappy and Denver the last two wallflowers, the onus falls on Denver to sweeten their deal. They have no leverage in this fight. The 49ers have set the bar, and Denver has to come up to meet it. Plain and simple. There is no way in hell the 49ers are going to cut Colin loose at this stage of the game. Paying the $12 mill is no problem given the state of the cap. And, really, what can Kaepernick do? Sit out the season? That would be career suicide.  His options are sit tight and fight for his job under the new regime, and fight for his job under the new regime. If he loses to Glabbert, then he sits until Blaine gets hurt.

Trent Baalke may be a shitty talent evaluator, but he is very good at negotiating deals. If anyone out there thinks the Niners are simply going to cut Kaepernick, I have some beachfront property in Reno to sell you . . .

    Chip likes Kap he stays. Kap has his shortcomings but he’s still better than a guy fresh from college no matter what the press clippings say.

  2. Nipper says:

    A loud BLEEP to anyone who will receive it.

  3. Winder says:

    Yeah nip keeping Kap will probably generate quite a bit of dialog on the blogs. I would like to keep him because I think he’s better than Gabbert. I still want Goff if he’s there though. So my guess is the opposite will happen.

    Fate is a bitch to deal with.

    Musical chairs down to Denver and NYJ.
    My angle, if Fitz sticks to his guns on money, Kaep might have an opportunity to get there.
    I wouldn’t see much benefit with Denver’s Pick unless you force them to release the grip on that 2nd.
    Somehow I think Sanchez was brought there as a bargaining chip.

    Go for Mo!

    • unca_chuck says:

      Sanchez is nothing but backup material. He’s no chip. Jets are broke. Don’t see that happening. But hey . . .

      • NJ49er says:

        It’s a system thing Chuck.
        Sanchez and Lewis can hit the ground running for Chip.
        Kaep to Denver is last resort for me.
        Putting my money on NYJ simply for Mo.
        If Kaep wants NYJ, he can get there with a lower cost than Fitz.
        Comes down to who blinks first on cost.
        Kaep or Fitz?

    Well, the Jets would look pretty stupid to lowball the guy that got them to the playoffs last year. At the risk of signing a guy who could very well implode.

  7. unca_chuck says:

    I just thought is was funny that Denver said Kappy is worth a 4th round pick, and they don’t have one to trade.

    Shit, the Niners got a 2 and 3 out of Alex. Kappy should be worth a 2.

    Buwwitt found another chew toy. Stay tuned for 6,000,000 posts about Kaepernick.

    Fuck off, you fucking dimwit. Shouldn’t you be happy we are trying to trade him?

    What is your take on that? LikeNoFear, it’s all hindsight.

  9. Nipper says:

    A drone apparently delivered a package today. Machines from the sky are the future?

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Right on cue buwwitt. If not for Harbaugh’s clock mismanagement, we’d be the 2012 Super Bowl champs.

    Dance, bitch. You say it’s funny that I say everything you post is hindsight, and then post shit about 2 years ago. Keep up the good work, wet-brain.

    Keep ’em coming, fuckstick.

    Nice morning music

    And you, Nipper

    Van always kinda reminded me of this guy,

    One of my favorite lines in music . . .

    – She’s filing her nails while they’re dragging the lake.

    Great songwriters both of ’em.

    Suck a bag of dicks, Buwwit. The protein might help your thought processes. Keep hiding behind Mommy’s, uh, Skeebie’s skirts.

    Jesus. The moronosity out there. PFT now reports that even if Kaepernick was cut, the Niners would be on the hook for for his 2016 salary because he won’t be able to pass his physical. Since he wasn’t going to get cut anyway, it’s a non-story. As is a possible salary negotiation if there is a trade.

    Then there’s speculation among the wetbrain tin foil crowd that Kappy faked his injuries and delayed the surgeries to guarantee his deal. That he wasn’t on any injury reports until after he was benched. Except that it’s bullshit. Kaepernick hurt his thumb in the Seattle game, and showed up to the postgame interview with it heavily bandaged, and was on the injury report that week. He was benched after the next game, where he suffered the knee injury. Ooops. He rehabbed his thumb and knee injuries per the 49ers training staff, and a followup in January revealed the ligament damage to the thumb. Like I said, the village idiot in training is revising history to suit his agenda.
