I just want to give a huge shout out to Colin Kaepernick the last man that made believe in the 49ers and watch a whole season. He is inspiring and a true leader. In 2013, Colin Kaepernick was on the cover of this magazine because he was one of the best football players in the world. In 2017, Colin Kaepernick is on GQ's cover once again—but this time it is because he isn't playing football. And it's not because he's hurt, or because he's broken any rules, or because he's not good enough. Approximately 90 men are currently employed as quarterbacks in the NFL, as either starters or reserves, and Colin Kaepernick is better—indisputably, undeniably, flat-out better—than at least 70 of them. He is still, to this day, one of the most gifted quarterbacks on earth. And yet he has been locked out of the game he loves—blackballed—because of one simple gesture: He knelt during the playing of our national anthem. And he did it for a clear reason, one that has been lost in the yearlong storm that followed. He did it to protest systemic oppression and, more specifically, as he said repeatedly at the time, police brutality toward black people.
Here are three words for America, Fuck the NFL! 😤
Citizen of the year.Respect to who respect deserves
Just watched the Virginia vs Miami game. QB, Kurt Benkert looked really good. He finished the game 28/37 for 384 yards, 4 TD, 1 INT. Other then his one bad read on the interception, he played great, and consistently made great throws, including 2 deep TDs put right on the money. I really hope we draft this guy. Shoutout to @lbs__16 for putting him on my radar.
