There’s a Petition for Packers to Sign Colin Kaepernick
Maybe we should just see how Brett Hundley does as a starter? Nah!
Let’s sign Colin Kaepernick!
Although he isn’t Aaron Rodgers — no one is — I personally think Brett Hundley can and will be a serviceable starter in the NFL. More so, I think the kid deserves a chance. He’s poised, he’s intelligent, he studies the game and he has some talent.
I am certainly in the minority in that thinking, it appears. All the pundits are writing the Packers off. A lot of fans are writing them, and Hundley, off.
Many believe former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is the answer.
Would I be angry if the Green Bay Packers signed Kaepernick? Not at all. The guy has talent and my feeling is he’s on some secret NFL blacklist. He’s another guy who deserves a chance.
But not before Brett Hundley.
Here’s the thing. Hundley knows the Packers system. He’s been in it for three years.
If the Packers were to bring Kaepernick in, how long would it take to get him up to speed? Three weeks? Four weeks? Even then, would he possess half the knowledge of the offense that Hundley does?
If Brett Hundley is a spectacular failure, then I’m all for the Packers signing Kaepernick (although I would prefer Tony Romo). But at this point, it makes no sense.
Nonetheless, as I said earlier, I am probably in the minority on this one. As such, there is a petition for the Packers to sign Kaepernick. About 20,000 people have signed it at last check.
I am obviously not one of them. It has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with football common sense.
