Yet again, Colin Kaepernick’s singular action has started a movement throughout the NFL, as players across the league are reportedly lining up to also start at quarterback for the 49ers.
“It takes a lot of courage, to go out there on his own and play quarterback for a team like the 49ers,” said Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall. “So, I wanted to show some support for my bro and prove that he’s not alone out there.”
Kaepernick reportedly tried to tell Marshall – along with the dozens of other players who suddenly abandoned their teams to play quarterback for the 49ers – that their support was only weakening his job security.
“I mean, it took me over a month to beat out Blaine freaking Gabbert for this job,” Kaepernick told reporters. “Now all of a sudden I’ve got to compete with the entire Seattle Seahawks roster for snaps? I mean, don’t get me wrong, this is going to help us a ton when we play the Seahawks, since they’ll have no team left – but there’s got to be some other way of showing support.”
“People say that ‘this is not the time and place’ to play quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, and that I should ‘stick to playing football for my own team’,” said Miami Dolphins running back and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Arian Foster.
“And you know what? Now that I’ve seen this offensive line up close, I can confirm that these people are absolutely right.”
