The list of reasons of why Kaepernick is unemployed all come from anonymous sources and are being used by a media that seems to have an agenda to keep Kap unemployed because he dares speaks up for black people’s rights.
The latest comes from random anonymous staffers that may or may not still be employed by the 49ers. Albert Breer who has been firmly in the corner of making sure people believe Kaepernick is a terrible quarterback has the story.
As one Niners employee explained it, Kaepernick wouldn’t stay late at the facility during the season like many quarterbacks routinely do, saying he’d take work home. And there were examples where coaches saw what looked like shoddy prep surfacing in inexplicable mental errors in games. Another staffer, asked if he thinks Kaepernick wants to keep playing, answered, “I do think he wants to play—to stay relevant.”
Remember, these guys like Kaepernick, and felt like the distraction he brought to the team was very manageable after the initial surge of attention subsided. And these problems added to the deficiencies in his accuracy and consistency from the pocket.
This is all speculation from one employee. It could have been the guy who washes the jock straps for all we know because it is anonymous. How does anyone know if Kaepernick actually did do the work at home? What are the specific mental errors they are talking about? If Kaepernick was such a poor leader and lazy individual why did his teammates vote him to receive their most prestigious team award? No coach or player has ever questioned Kaepernick’s work ethic, but we are supposed to believe one random staffer?
This is all media whitewashing. Here is a simple opinion based on a lot of facts.
If Kaepernick never kneels, never stands up for black people he has a job right now in the NFL. You can argue he is better than all 20 Free Agent Quarterbacks this season, he surely has accomplished more than all them combined. Even if every single excuse that the media has thrown out was TRUE, if he hadn’t kneeled he would have a job.
The fact most of the excuses are bogus, tells you the media is in on the blackballing, which is sad but not surprising from a media that is 90% white males, why would they care about US?
