lol Why in the world would you bring up a meaningless point especially when it doesn't apply. No it's based on single parent families. Do you have a point?

Because the percentages matter. 30% single parent families for whites to 70% single parent families for blacks. Trying so hard to be right instead of looking for the truth.

No one here is saying it's bad to be black or that as a group blacks are inferior.

But he took the pay out

I respect you opinion, but please do your homework on CK on field play.
No one, not even Joe Montana could have QB this team the last 2 years CK was with the 49ers.
O-line stunk, WR were even worse that doesn't make the QB ad.
Kap was not a good QB imo. If the O line and overall offense is weak you need a mobile QB like Kap or the great Russell Wilson. You wont go too far with Kap but the team will be better. When the team has pass blocking and offense the emphasis goes back to passing which Kap wasn't too good at. Successful running QBs are rare and they rarely last.

If it was meaningless, you would have chosen to use the actual number and not the inflated lie.

No, its based on martial status, not whether both parents are actually in the same home. There is a giant difference there.

People can live together and not be married, you know this right ????

Colin Kapernick's QBR rating by season when he started at least one game.

7th, 16th, 29th, 23rd.

Just a reminder, there are 32 teams in the league, all have at least 3 Qbs on the roster. that means at least 98 QBs.

The only inflated lie is your posts.
Fact over 70% of black children are raised in single parent homes. For you to say "that is based on marriage" is absurd.

Yet you haven't presented any evidence to the contrary. Just because you said so? hahahaha Why listen to something you made up?
Why of course, there are tons of people who live together with kids who aren't married.

And? So?
Fact over 70% of black children are raised in single parent homes.
Prove that fact wrong. I'll be waiting.

Just a reminder Kaep has a lifetime Completion percentage of under 60% lol.

Explain to everyone here why Case Keenum, who led his team to a 13-3 record with a QB rating of 98.3 lost his job? Kaeps best full season was 7 points less? Because the QB rating doesn't give a full picture.

Answer because running QBs rarely succeed. Cunninghams best seasons was when he didn't run. He rarely played a full season because running QBs get hurt.

If he didn't have the baggage he would be a backup QB somewhere but wouldn't be starting. It's the extra baggage that keeps him out of the NFL. It's his inability to play the position well enough as to the reason he wasn't starting.

And I reprint it once more for the "he should have a job in he NFL" crowd who know nothing about football except stats thrown at them from people like Jamele Hill and the other SJW sportswriters:

He is not a good passer, and the 16-4 TD-INT thing from 2016 is one cherry picked stat that attempts to rank QBs along a single metric in order to make a horrible, failed attempt at proving a null hypothesis.

To really prove the null hypothesis - political activism ALONE is why Kaepernick does not have a job - you have to eliminate all variables other than activism, and also, ask if any other activists have a job in the NFL, or have since Kaepernick has not.

To the first part - eliminating all variables other than activism (using the same 2016 as the 16-4 TD-INT stat):
  • DYAR - 55th out of 63 (total QBs who attempted at least 10 passes)
  • DVOA - 47th out of 63
  • QBR - 27th out of 63
  • Effective Yards/Actual Yards ratio - 37th out 63
  • Completion percentage - 43rd out of 63
San Fran team ranks with him at QB in 2016 (32 teams):
  • 3rd down efficiency - 30th
  • Passing yards - 32nd
  • Yards/attempts - 27th
  • Completion % - 29th
  • Sacks taken - 30th (ranked in ascending order of number taken, fewer being better)
  • Net passing yards per game - 32nd
So there are all sorts of relative stats that show Kaepernick clearly at or very near the bottom among all other QBs.

Now to the second question - did any other activists kneel in 2014-2016 and still play?
  • Eric Reid - first to join Kaepernick in kneeling, played 26 games between 2017 and 2018.
  • Kenny Stills - knelt during early period of Kaepernick's protest, continues kneeling and speaking out in defense of Kaepernick and the message, played 31 games between 2017 and 2018.
  • Michael Thomas - knelt every game from Kaeprnick's start through the entire 2017 season, played 36 games between 2017 and 2018.
Thus, there is no valid proof of the null hypothesis that the SOLE reason Kaepernick does not have a job is activism/kneeling. From one side, it can be proven that he has objectively worse statistics at his position than the majority of NFL quarterbacks, and from the other side, it can be proven that other players who have participated in the EXACT SAME activism have all played in the NFL during the time that he has not.

All the SJWs trying to prove anything other than "mediocre 33 year old ex-qb does not have job because he simply isn't good enough to warrant a contract" are simply ignoring logic and all available evidence.
Also, just because there are 96 (the actual product of multiplying 32 by 3) QB slots in the league, theoretically, that doesn't mean that Kaepernick's performance + salary expectation + negative marketing hit warrant having one of them. The average salary cap hit across the entire NFL for the 2nd string QB (which would be QBs 33-64) is $2.1 million, and Kaepernick in 2017 was demanding $9-10 million and a guarantee to start some minimum number of games. He clearly demanded more than backup QBs are compensated, given the current highest paid backup QB in the league is paid $6 million (Teddy Bridgewater, NO). Also, the settlement he received from the NFL for his lawsuit was reported between $60-80 million, so he already shook them down for more money than he'd ever get for playing.

At this point, it is an SJW meme to cry racism when other race card memes fail. He doesn't even want to play football, given his "pay me $20 million" demands to the AAFL and XFL, who have set salaries of $250k by league rules. No idea why we still talk about the failed journeyman who sued and humiliated his former employer.
