If the NFL won’t take in a player like Colin Kaepernick that no team owner or coach of any color seems to want, it’s cannot be because Kaepernick’s production tanked.
Today I want to show you how the Progressive Left not only encourages racism, but they absolutely use racism as a tool to force their agenda on a weak American public who usually winds up kowtowing out of fear. With that, let’s take a look at the careers of both former NFL quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick.
- BOTH MEN STARTED WITH GREAT FANFARE: Colin Kaepernick was named the Western Athletic Offensive Player of the Year twice and was the Most Valuable Player of the 2008 Humanitarian Bowl. Kaepernick was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Tim Tebow won both the Heisman Trophy and the BCS National Championship while playing for the Florida Gators in college. He was drafted by the NFL’s Denver Broncos in 2010 and joined the New York Jets in 2012.
- BOTH MEN HAD A GREAT ROOKIE YEAR: The Washington Post had this to say about Kaepernick’s start in the NFL. “In his first 16 career starts — the equivalent of a full regular season — he accumulated the following stat line: 259 completions in 433 pass attempts for 3,627 yards, with 22 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, along with 674 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns. At that point, Kaepernick was still three weeks shy of his 26th birthday, and appeared to be one of the game’s most valuable assets: a young, talented quarterback.” Tim Tebow, as you may recall, had such a great rookie year that he not only took his team to the Super Bowl Playoffs, he also managed to beat my favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in the process. Wow, that’s really good!
Now please pay attention because now we are going to show you their differences
You can safely say that both the black Colin Kaepernick and the white Tim Tebow were given a fair and equal shot in the NFL. Both men were judged not by their skin color, but rather by their talents and potential. Since the current NFL player roster league-wide is made up of 70% black and 30% white and other races, you could make a pretty good case that black people are preferred in the NFL. But that is not the case we are making.
Let’s continue in our look at the two QB’s:
- BOTH MEN KNEELED AT SOME POINT DURING THE GAME: Colin Kaepernick exercised his First Amendment right to Free Speech by choosing to publicly kneel during the playing of the National Anthem. He said he did this because America was “against black people”. (remember the NFL is 70% black players). Kaepernick’s kneeling earned him plenty of enemies who did not like what he did. Tim Tebow exercised his First Amendment right to Free Speech by choosing to publicly kneel in prayer to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give Him the glory. Tebow’s kneeling earned him plenty of mockers and detractors who did not like what he did. Both men’s rights to behave in the way of their choosing are protected and guaranteed under America’s founding documents.
- BOTH MEN WERE LET GO WHEN THEY DID NOT PRODUCE: The same Washington Post story that praised Colin Kaepernick’s early efforts went on to say this about him as his production decreased.
“But the 49ers roster has been decimated since that Super Bowl appearance, and with that, Kaepernick’s production has significantly declined. He went from being an extremely efficient quarterback in 2012, to a very good one in 2013, to a below-average one in 2014. This year? Kaepernick has been the least efficient passer in the NFL, as measured by Adjusted Net Yards per Attempt. The graph shows Kaepernick’s Adjusted Net Yards per Attempt average in each year since 2012, alongside the league average rates. As you can see, the steady decline has been remarkable for a young quarterback who should be entering his prime years. Given this trajectory, is it time for the 49ers to move on from Kaepernick?”
Tim Tebow, attaining the incredible success of reaching the playoffs his first year was rewarded by…getting let go from the Denver Broncos. This is what John Elway gave as the reason for cutting a QB who brought his team to the playoffs first year.
A couple days after the loss to the Patriots, the Broncos’ chief football decision-maker, John Elway, said this about Tebow’s future:
“At the same age, I had a long way to go, too. But I probably, at times, moved too much, relied too much on moving around. Hopefully I can relay that [to Tebow], because my progression as a quarterback was that I finally realized later in my career that I wished I’d learned [earlier] the fact that you do have to win from the pocket.”.
And there it is, the bottom line. It’s why the Broncos chased Peyton Manning, why they traded Tebow, why they moved on when they had the chance. They simply decided a running quarterback is fine, but he has to throw better, be more accurate to win trophies in the Sunday league.” source
If you have half a brain in your head (if your a Liberal it’s most likely half a brain), you can clearly see why both Colin Kaepernick and Tim Tebow were let go. It has very little to do with public prayer, public rejection of the Pledge of Allegiance, or even with skin color. Both these once-talented men were unable to keep producing at a level required of marquee players in the NFL.
Plain and simple, that’s the reason. Stats and money.
If you want to riot and boycott and whine that Kaepernick is being treated poorly because he’s black, you’re an idiot. When his numbers were up, he had a job. When his numbers dropped he lost his job. Basic math, people. If you want to riot and boycott and whine that Tebow was let go because of his strong Christian stance, you’re also an idiot. Tebow was let go because while he had some awesome moments, he had no consistency. More basic math.
In the end, nobody wanted Tim Tebow because nobody wanted him. And now nobody wants Colin Kaepernick because nobody wants him. And right here is where the rubber meets the road.
When the NFL rejected Tim Tebow, he was forced to first become a sportscaster to put food on the table and now is a baseball player on the Mets farm team. He went where someone wanted him. Yay! He didn’t whine and cry about being shunned for being a white man in a black-dominated football league, and he didn’t play the religion persecution card not even for a second. He did what he had to do, and he’s doing great.
Liberal racists call for an #NFLBlackout
After the NFL rejected Colin Kaepernick, the entire Black Lives Matter thug community has gone into an uproar. At this very moment, they are demanding that Kaepernick be given a team tryout. Demanding! And if the NFL won’t bow to their demands, they are threatening a league-wide boycott until they do. Are you stinkin’ kidding me??
“There will be no football in the state of Georgia if Colin Kaepernick is not on a training camp roster and given an opportunity to pursue his career,” Gerald Griggs of the Atlanta NAACP told Fox 5. Riggs warned that if Kaepernick remains unsigned to a deal as of 5 p.m. Sept. 17, “We are going to have the world’s largest tailgate, and that tailgate will not go into Mercedes-Benz Stadium.” (Riggs was referring to the new $1.6 billion home of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons.)
“We will take a knee, and we will continue to take a knee on the NFL until they act with one voice,” Riggs said.
Why are they doing this? Because in their deluded half-brains, no black person can be let go, fired or disliked for any other reason that because that person is black.
When Obama was president, if you didn’t like his Marxist behavior, it was not because he was a Marxist. It was because he was black. If you question him on his pro-Muslim and anti-Christian proclamations, it was only because he was black. Never because he was pro-Muslim and anti-Christian.
So now, if the NFL won’t take in a player like Colin Kaepernick that no team owner or coach of any color seems to want, it’s cannot be because Kaepernick’s production tanked. No. Never that. The only reason it could possible be is because he’s (partially) black and the black man is not welcome in a “white man’s game”.
Did I tell you that the NFL player roster, of players recruited and picked by predominately white people, is 70% black?
