Tebow vs. Kaepernick

Tebow does this and everybody is going crazy calling him money hungry and pathetic (and called me an idiot for arguing otherwise.)

Kaepernick does it and nobody cares.

I don't get it. Did everybody suddenly realize it's a perfectly legitimate thing to do, or is it just that if you're a good QB you can do whatever you want and if you're not you can't?

For Colin Kaepernick, anything feels possible. He's on the doorstep of Super Bowl glory and even has his own dangerously predictable Internet meme.

Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday that the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback has filed to trademark the term "Kaepernicking," per the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The craze, borne out of Kaepernick's tendency to celebrate touchdowns by flexing his right arm and kissing his bicep, has led to a flood of fan-generated Internet photos copying the pose.

The fad -- which we swear sailors and wrestler-types have been doing for generations -- comes on the heels of Griffining, Bradying, Gronking, and the grandaddy of them all: Tebowing. Reports suggest the societally unnerving streak of "Horsemanning" has nothing to do with the Denver Broncos or their quarterback.

A nation asleep at the wheel barrels onward.

Wait a minute. How can Kaepernick be a good QB? He was drafted in the 2nd round. I thought only a top 2 or 3 pick in the draft could net you a good QB.

Typically, your chances are much higher of getting to a SB from a 1st round QB.

Additionally, Kaep has arguably the best QB coach on planet Earth in Harbaugh right now. I'm sure that has been somewhat beneficial.

Do we need to go over percentages again?

Odds of a 2nd round QB becoming a star
Odds of a 1st round QB becoming a star


Which one is higher?

One guy has substance to his game and the other flukes stuff up in spite of completing 4 passes a game, as a result drives his critics insane, and gets the hype of a top 5 qb that his on field play has neeeeever warranted at the NFL level.

I like Tebow and everything he represents but that's really all it is as opposed to a double standard.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Perfect response.
No one ever claimed guys drafted after the 1r never pan out it is just a matter of playing odds at the most important position.

just out of curiosity, why did Kaepernick drop to the 2nd?

too skinny? Didnt play for a big school? Viewed as a runner first?

admittedly, i didnt know much about him until this year.

My buddy loved him coming out of college. I had literally never watched him play until draft day when they showed highlights. Felt pretty meh about him then. Now I feel like an asshole.

People miss. Everyone in the CP mock passed on him in round 1. DaKCMan AP stole him in round 2.

Cowherd asked the ? to a NFL guy (I was only half listening) and I think I heard the guy say they didn't like his delivery.

I watched him play in college against MU twice and he was kind of blah but that was earlier in his career. Then I saw him against Boise st on a fri night and they upset them. The thing about all 3 games is that I didn't remember him completing a high % of passes. So my impression was just that he was a great athlete but not a nfl qb.

Meh, guys get missed on by the pros let alone armchair hacks on the Internet.

Really the only thing that I laugh at are people that think they know for a fact a player is going to be great or not. None of us know squat but it's fun to discuss and exchange opinions and learn.

Yea, i almost mentioned that too. He does look like he has a little hitch in his delivery or throws at 3 quarters or sidearms. Doesnt seem to hurt him much.
