    Agreed! But what is left on the market? Kap is the best option. As I said before, Romo will not last through the first quarter of the season.....HE'S TOO BEAT UP! Why have to QBs that have shown they can not stay healthy. You're asking fo more of the same of what we have gone through the past 2 to 3 years, just because you DON'T AGREE WITH KAP'S OOLITICAL VIEWS......THAT'S BEING SHORT SIGHTED AND IDIOTIC ORBTG! LOL

    I would start with Savage, bring in Kap as a backup and draft a Rookie. I think Savage deserves a chance BUT in my heart of hearts, I don't think Savage is good enough nor will he remain healthy through a 17 week schedule.

    How long do you think Romo will stay healthy? And if Savage is backing up Romo, how long do think Savage will stay healthy?

    You are asking for more of the same....A QB CAROUSEL

    What, is this confirmed, link?

    I wasn't a fan of these antics, and not much of a fan of him on the field post hard-boil but wow wasn't that important after all apparently if true.

    Not sure why people saying hes just not good means we are against his politics. Many have not even brought them up, are we allowed to simply not like him as a QB? Wrong system, fading player, not the best option. He's basically a better version of RG3, once teams stopped him from running he crumbled. That's why he only had a season and a half of being good, a lot like RG3 except he got hurt.

    Jay Cutler got hurt last year and only played 4 games.
    But in 2015: 64.4% 3600 yds, 21/11, 92 rat
    Kaep in 2016: 59.2%, 2241, 16/4, 90.7 rat

    if you take both players '15 and 16' together I think Cutler still wins. But he has distraction issues just like Kaep...
    Best 2016 was who the niners picked up BRIAN HOYER had a better 2016 than Kaep, that should tell you enough.
    Also, no matter how you spin all of this just do one thing, look at the system we run, it is not a Kaepernick system.....

    EDIT: didnt even realize you said any better season: Fitzpatrick in 2015: 59.6% 3900 yds, 31/15 88 rat... pretty comparable considering he also got more than 2 wins, but you are about to say how much more talent the jets have so forget it... in 2014: 64%, 2400 yds, 17/8, 95 rating... so thats 2 years better.

    He's not a good QB.
    Stats, history, and visual confirmation prove this.
    As his fellow namesake Colin Cowherd went over today on air, even in his best year(s) as a 49er, their passing efficiency was still dead last or close in the league. That was with a dominant offensive line, run game, TE, solid receivers and a dominant defense providing solid field position. And that was also when there was less to little to no tape on him. And he's only gotten worse.

    He had a 92,98,86 QB rating in his 3 years with harbaug, I don't know how that can passing efficiency can be dead last in the league. At least post some stats to backup. Colin Cowherd just makes **** up half the time.

    I don't see the downside if you offer him the minimum and invite him to training camp. Throw another guy into the competition. Worst case scenario, you cut him and spend some money that the Texans have. Best case scenario, he helps the team. He would be more than a decent backup.

    I don't think McNair would sign him because of the political issues. 11 NFL owners donated to Mitt Romney's campaign including McNair. Bob was the only one out of the 11 to donate to Donald Trump's campaign. He also has a lot of big companies including power plants so he has a lot to gain out of Trump's economic and environmental regulation policies. I doubt he would want to piss Trump off and Trump for some reason cares about kaepernick.

    Kap is simply not a NFL QB. He might be better than Brock but thats not that high a bar. Rather just go with Savage

    Hopefully Kap can bounce back. SB year Kap was one of the most exciting players in the league to watch.

    Hmmm... looks right. He was a solid, above average passer in those best years. Went downhill seemingly every season and became very very bad. Not sure what exactly Cowherd was on about then - I rarely if ever listen to him, the other stations were on a commercial.

    He does not have The Look of a Texan Quarterback
    The concept of passing on him for Romo . . . makes me smh.
    But. . . Romo does look like a Texan Quarterback
