He also has made it clear he doesn't want to play football. He had a few chances and he decided to just talk a lot of shit.

Once other teams realized how bad he was at reading defensive changes he was toast

Now this is a fair criticism. At first, under Harbaugh, when the play didn't work out (possibly or probably due to his inability to quickly read defenses) he had the option of running. He was probably even encouraged to run, by OC Greg Roman, before the play broke down. He was undeniably a very effective running QB.

As soon as Harbaugh tried to turn him into a pocket passer, this weakness was on full display. Kap was a disaster as a pocket passer, although I think he was the archetype for today's highly desirable mobile quarterback, tho clearly not as good as the best we have currently in Lamar Jackson.

My $0.02 is that Harbaugh should have left him alone and molded the offense around him, instead of trying to mold Kap into a pocket passer. He was not a pocket passer, and his inability to read defenses quickly ensured he would never become one. The political stuff was after all that.

I may not be the most active listening to American news, nor does your American football really interest me that much, but I'm pretty damn sure that he was kicked out because he was politicised too much and politicized himself

It's more complicated than that. By the time his political views became an issue, his career as a QB had become shaky at best, due to a variety of reasons.

Also, I think it's fair to say he hasn't always been his own best friend in terms of getting an NFL job. After he opted out of his 49ers contract (and to be fair, he probably would have been released anyway, likely mainly for financial reasons) he was offered a contract by the Broncos, but purportedly turned it down since they didn't guarantee him a starting job. Since then, he also notably delayed and relocated a tryout to a considerably distant location.

Huh what?

Why am I even replying to this?

I don't know why I'm replying, because normally if someone can't formulate their "huh" into "huh" plus some kind of question indicating why they're are in a state of "huh", I ignore them.

Well I was just acknowledging your Statement. I Dont have anything substantial to say, but still wanted to be polite enough to inform you that I had read it and so posted "huh"
2 ups, 4y
He sucks, plain and simple, there are hundreds of players that kneel .

He had a Tryout last season and he didnt show up, he has nobody to blame but himself for that.

His last year in the NFL he turned down a 17 million$ contract to be a backup, there were some starters that year that didnt make that.

My team (The Eagles) won the super bowl that year with a 7 million$ backup
Kap couldnt win in his prime..

Look where SF is now without Kap. Best in the NFC and 2nd best overall.
and most likely will go to the Big Game again

He was benched BEFORE his little drama act on the sidelines. He was trying to use that to shame the team into putting him back on the field and it morphed into the debacle we have today.

If we go by his stats, he was better than almost every current backup QB in the NFL, and also a fair number of starters.

Although the fact remains that after he opted out of his 49ers contract, he turned down a contract offer from Denver, purportedly because he may have ended up being a backup.

As a 49ers fan, my opinion is that he was not handled properly by coach Harbaugh, who tried to turn him into a pocket passer. Kap was the archetype for the current in-demand type of NFL QB (think Lamar Jackson, tho Kap clearly was not that good, as is the case for most QBs not named Patrick Mahomes.)

Clearly his talent (at the time) warranted at least being a backup QB, but he didn't get more than one offer due to his political views.

In other words, his talent was not sufficient to overcome his perceived baggage, since the NFL is (well, was) well known for giving repeat criminal offenders multiple chances, if their talent made the team owners / coaches believe they could help them win.

Hes right, he could beat any backup in the nfl right now, he could prolly beat some starters, if we talking about football then kapernick is really good and is better then any backup in the nfl

I don't know that I would go quite that far. He's a victim, imo, of circumstances, but also of his own convictions and his own ineptitude

Tell me again why he was benched before taking a knee?
0 ups, 4y
By that time he was lost at the QB position. Coach Harbaugh failed at turning him into a pocket passer, which was a mistake to even try, imo. The next year under Tomsula, he didn't stand a chance, as Tomsula was hapless as an NFL coach, and couldn't have rescued Kap if he had tried.

Had Harbaugh tailored the offense to Kap, instead of trying to mold Kap into his offense (hmmm, so maybe it was really OC Greg Roman's fault?) then Kap would not have been benched by Tomsula. Yep, just speculation on my part. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he was a great QB, but he was better than Blaine Gabbert... right? (It was Gabbert who replaced him after he was benched) Can we at least all agree on that?

The reason he hasn't gotten a job offer (save one, from Denver) since taking a knee, is imo because his talent is not sufficient to mitigate the perceived baggage that comes with his political views. With recent developments that may change and he may now fulfill his new destiny, as a relatively well compensated backup QB.

"Led his team to the superbowl" 100 years ago and choked in his prime....

SF is the best in the NFC now without him, get your facts straight..

BTW he had a Tryout last season and he didnt show so thats 100% his fault..

He turned down 17 Million as a backup the same year my teams Backup QB (Foles) won the superbowls for 7 million

Kap is a choker period. I am from Philly and have seen my fair share of choker QB's with the eagles too

I would say "Very good" is kinda pushing it.. Look at his stats, they are just OK. He had a decent 2-1/2 yrs, then went downhill
