We all have our opinions about the political stance and actions of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. I’m not here writing about his political stance or actions. I know, you’re not willing to just take my word for it, I don’t blame you for not wanting to hear me out on the matter. Indulge me on this one!
This writer is here to state that you need to read the following article about Colin Kaepernick’ s ability to still play quarterback in the NFL, according to Stephen White. According to White, there’s a lot of misinformation out there about Kaepernick’s play and ability to still play. White has the expertise to support the statement because he’s a retired NFL defensive end and football analyst.
White dives into Kaepernick’ s quarterback performance by taking a look at the last couple of years of his play and provides supportive factual information and numbers regarding his performance by going back and reviewing real game film. The breakdown of the game film was to offer the best and most accurate assessment of Kaepernick’s ability to play, then and now, in the NFL as a quarterback.
Some of the arguments concerning Kaepernick’s ability to play include: he has the slowest release in football; he holds onto the ball until he gets sacked or has to throw it away; he runs the ball too much and he’s lost a step; he’s peaked and has nothing left to offer. However, read the article to see that many of the myths concerning his ability to play then and now are addressed in-depth.
