Default John Elway: 'I've Always Liked Colin Kaepernick'

Just throwing this out there as a post-Manning option. He certainly will be cut by the Niners. Seems the Broncos staff is impressed with him last preseason during the shared practice with the 49ers. Von Miller is also impressed by his offseason work as well. He'd probably fit in the budget for Elway rather than Osweiler.

I don't think it's a certainty he will be cut. I also can't stand the guy. So I hope it doesn't happen.

Certainly more interesting than some of the alternatives, but I'll put the chances of this at verrrrry low

He seems to have all the tools for NFL QB, his accuracy & feet work have been a problem thats prolly fixable. But I never liked the guy, seems like entitled all about me person.

People think Brock can't read a defense or route tree...their heads gonna explode having to watch Kaep fail on every aspect. If you want a scrambling Baffoon who can't read defenses or hit a WR in stride might as well bring Tebow back.

I made a fortune betting Nevada when he was leading them. The guy is a poor mans Cam Newton physically. I read he was clocked in at 98-99 as a pitcher. What the heck happened to him after his early run in San Fran?

He doesn't have all the tools. He isn't smart. He can't read defenses. And his accuracy is awful.

If Brock wants above $12 Mill I'd rather have Kaepernick. He's a solid choice, mobile, big arm, solid experience. He has some issues but I'd rather the Broncos go with him than a $12Mill+ Brock solution.

I don't think anything is certain on that front. Hiring Kelly and tossing Kap to the side doesn't make much sense.

"A solid choice."

Sign Brock. If that fails, hope the Saints cut Drew Brees--they owe him $30+ mil. this year--and sign him.

Elway may corner the market on past SB champs that have 3 yrs or so left in them, and want another championship. Sounds good to me.

Kaepernick is inconsistent. One week he's blowing the doors off with a 335 yard game and a 100+ QB rating, and the next week he's 9 of 19 and 4 INTS. Besides, this doesn't actually make sense. The talk last month was one of the deciding factors between Chip Kelly and Mike Shanahan was that Shanahan wanted to get rid of Kaep.

Not really. Those all read like pregame comments which are always complimentary. If anything Elway has shown he doesn't like QBs like Kaepernick. I mean he has all of Tebow's problems basically.

Drew Brees just got a $10 million dollar kicker that came due today. It's currently $20 million dead money in 2016 if they cut him.

Kelly likes Blaine Gabbert as well, so in other news he is a QB whore.

I don't think anyone is arguing that Kap can read defenses well. It's more about cost control for the Broncos so they can keep their #1 defense intact for another run.

There are a lot of people who think we have to win pretty on offense for it to count.

Think about this,


Frank Gore is not a **** talker. He was quoted as saying having Luck in the huddle was the 1st time his QB had leadership skills. He said "Luck runs the huddle, I've never had that".




Kaep didn't just lose his coaches, he lost the players on his offense too. They were happy to see Gabbert. Think about that.

Simple, he couldn't play the position. Running around only gets you so far and doesn't involve any brains.

what is up with some of you people. Why do you have to be jerks to everyone all the time? We don't need death wishes on people to discuss our team.
