Strange Days, Indeed. Say what you will about our kneeling non-voter who loves him some Fidel, Colin Kaepernick actually looks like he’s catching on to Chip Kelly’s offense. After a couple shitty games where CK was shaking off the rust of his benching and injury layoff, he’s gone 86-145 for 1100 yards (60%), 8 TDs, and 2 picks. Even with the 2 shitty games, his numbers are improving, and yesterday’s game saw Kap rush for 113 yards as well.
Frankly, they are in a spot where there ain’t any definitive QBs coming out for the draft in 2017. And the free agent market looks like Walmart after Black Friday. Cutler? Fuck that. Ryan Fitzpatrick Fitzryan? Uh, no. Romo? God no to the Nth degree. Trading up in the draft is a non-starter as there is no one that solid coming out. Mortgaging the future for Goff will be the death of the Rams. And they were the blueprint for NOT doing it by seeing what happened to the Redskins and RG III and out. Not that they had any life anyway, but they will continue to circle the drain. The Cards look to be falling back to Earth in a big way. Seattle is pretty fucking wobbly as well.
Believe it or not, keeping Kappy is the best option out there till this team actually has a couple successful drafts. Kappy did well yesterday with nothing in the WR OR TE corps and a defense that gives up 3rd down conversions like a creepy clown handing out candy to little kids.
Beyond that, if this team seriously gets Tony Romo, we will be the laughingstock of the NFL.
