Incoming “and yet Kaep still doesn’t have a job” all over Facebook ?
We're looking at over 3 full seasons since he has taken a meaningful snap.
We're looking at the 2013 playoffs since he last did anything of any particular relevance (in which he had the Niners in the NFC title game and like 6 yards away or whatever it was from going to a 2nd straight SB.....until he tested Richard Sherman at the wrong time).
Was 2012 / 2013 Kaepernick better than Brian Hoyer at pretty much any point? Absolutely. Would it be worth taking a risk on getting no better than 2014 - 2016 Kaepernick (meaning likely at this point a team won't even get THOSE not-particularly-great versions of him, after having been out of the loop for so long) vs. a guy who has started meaningful games in the NFL in the last few years and knows the Pats' system? Likely not....and those people who keep beating that drum are delusional.
We don't know what his style is with this. This is unprecedented.
