The NFL Hates Colin Kaepernick So Much the Tennessee Titans Just Signed Brandon Weeden

OK, at this point, it’s getting embarrassing the levels to which teams will stoop to try to sign a quarterback not named Colin Kaepernick. The Tennessee Titans just signed Brandon Weeden.

Yep, Brandon Weeden.

And don’t give me that bullshit that he never knelt before the flag when this asshat not only knelt before the flag—he knelt under the flag!


In the wake of starting quarterback Marcus Mariota’s hamstring injury, the Tennessee Titans didn’t even bring in Kaepernick for a workout and decide that they were going to go with Weeden. The same Brandon Weeden who was cut from the Houston Texans before this season started? The same Brandon Weeden who couldn’t keep a job with the Cleveland Browns? The same Brandon Weeden who’s a great quarterback if the job of quarterbacking means throwing nice passes to the other team?

I think one of the issues with the whiteballing of Kaepernick is the fake argument that he can’t play in this league. The argument that no team wants to adjust its entire system to accommodate Kaepernick’s style as a mobile quarterback. But the fact is that the Titans didn’t even entertain the idea of Kaepernick when their starter is a mobile quarterback and their offense is set up to work with a mobile quarterback.

While the Titans don’t know if Mariota is going to miss any time, I think the one thing that’s clear is that Kaepernick not being picked up by any NFL team is not a football decision. I wish we could all just agree that Kaepernick isn’t in the league because he had the audacity to protest the senseless killings of unarmed black men, women and children by police.


Dan Patrick thinks there may be some politics at play, and if you don’t believe that, too, then you might be part of the problem.


Oh, yeah, and I guess Weeden redeemed himself regarding his disrespect for the flag when he posed like this:

Good luck, America. At this point, you’re embarrassing yourself.
