The quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick, has continued to make news over the past few days by praising recently deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, as well as continuing to kneel for the national anthem at football games.
Kaepernick finished his time in the game with a measly four yards passing. Even worse, he took five sacks, which cost his team 25 yards. That’s right: more sacks than passing yards.
“We haven’t had any discussions about it,” coach Chip Kelly explained. “It was my decision to make and (I) made a move to see if we can get a spark and to see where we were. At that point of time of the game we were down a couple of scores and obviously we got throw it to see if we can get a spark for the team.”
The 49ers ended up losing badly to the Chicago Bears, 26-6.
Kaepernick was quite surprised that he got benched during the game, NFL.com noted. Perhaps he was too blinded by his own arrogance to see that he kinda sorta wasn’t doing really well.
“I was surprised. It wasn’t something I expected,” Kaepernick stated.
Fox News noted that this was the first time in NFL history that a quarterback was both sacked five times and threw for less than five yards in a game.
Perhaps Kaepernick should focus more on being a decent football player (if that’s possible) and leave the protesting to people who actually know what they are talking about.
