You don't like stats and charts? Try watching Moneyball some time dude. Statistics are the way of the future. I have a faint suspicion that you and Shrek2 may be the same person and that's cool with me.

Btw, I am not a fan of the 49ers or Kap. I just think Kap got shafted by the white minded NFL. I don't really like Kap because he was always so arrogant. However, I have always respected Kaepernick.

You must admit it is ironic that the super white Patriots ended up being the saviors of the 49ers in their timely release of Jimmy G. to answer their quarterback dilemma.
Not related to Makana. 2500 miles away from Kailua. UH graduate.

I don't think Kap is arrogant as I have heard stories that he is a nice guy.

Finally, I am not white but I have lived in Europe and all over the US (not with the military) and yes there are racial biases but this is not what the discussion is about. Its about Kap as an American football player.

Okay...okay....agree to disagree? I'm a UH graduate too. Jimmy G. just made the biggest bank in NFL history. It would appear your team believes it has a franchise quarterback. Good luck. I have no ill will towards Jimmy G., you, or your team.

Aloha. ;-)

Let's hope for Kap to get a chance somewhere.

BTW that video is laughable, using a chart method to determine how great a QB is, please, smfh. Thanks for the video though I'm gonna post that on another site. Hahahaha!! Fail.

You couldn't be more wrong about stats, in no way do they tell the whole story on how a player performed. You continue watching Moneyball I'll stick to watching Football!!!

And not only did you make things personal in here by taking a shot at shrek and I but you also made it racist too. And btw Jimmy G. is Italian you need to get your facts straight.

Actually, Jimmy G. is Italian and Polish. Those are considered to be white races. Try calling an Italian the N word and see what happens. The issue of Colin Kaepernick is very much racially charged. He was protesting racial profiling by police and got black-balled as a result. Again, you're being naive.

I was testing to see if you and Shrek2 were the same person and clearly you are not. Your responses are polar opposites. There is nothing personal here; I assure you.

But, but Tom Brady never was any good. Watch this video and see what a real coach can do with untapped potential in a quarterback nobody else wanted. The irony of this thread and its contributors is palpable.

Look, quarterbacks get written off all the time as being no good. Tom Brady was one. Nick Foles was another...how about Dan Robinson? Sometimes great coaches and great teams make the difference. To simply write off Colin Kaepernick because his team lost a bunch of games with two one-year-and-out coaches is nonsense.

I never "wrote off" Colin Kaepernick for his bad years, I just never thought of him as a good starting NFL quarterback even back to his UNR days. There are some things that I see of quarterbacks that I enjoy watching and I did not enjoy watching Colin Kaepernick because of basic mistakes even when they were winning.

At Nevada, Colin passed for 82 td's and only gave up 24 int's. He was a force to be reckoned with for Hawaii. Again, look at the video I posted of his pro stats. They mirror his college stats. Many highly paid quarterbacks in the NFL have both terrible college stats and terrible professional stats. Yet, they continue to be the face of their respective franchises. I hope your newly designated franchise quarterback doesn't match the expectations of the guy they chose instead of Tom Brady. Yes...take a good long look at that other video I posted regarding the overlook of Tom Brady for Giovanni Carmazzi.

Shannon Sharpe on why Colin Kaepernick deserves a shot at a starting job in the NFL and how he is nothing like Tim Tebow. You must think that Shannon Sharpe hasn't done his research properly. He has no idea what he is talking about because he doesn't watch football as much as you do.
