Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy made it clear he feels Colin Kaepernick isn’t employed because he isn’t that good.
Lots of people push the narrative the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback is unemployed because of racism, but McCoy doesn’t see it that way.
It’s a lot more than just he’s not on the team because he doesn’t want to stand for the national anthem. That may have something to do with it, but I think also it has a lot to do with his play. I’m sure a lot of teams wouldn’t want him as their starting quarterback. That chaos that comes along with it, it’s a lot. As a team, trying to win and not have a distraction on the team, I just take that as a player – there’s certain players that could be on the team with big distractions, and there’s other players that it’s not good enough or not worth it. I think his situation is not good enough to have him on the team with all the attention that comes along with it. I’m sure if a guy like Brady or a guy like whoever is your favorite player – Odell Beckham or a guy like that – you’ll deal with that attention and play him. With certain guys, it’s not worth it.
You take a guy like Michael Vick who went through what he went through. He’s 10 times better than Kaepernick. You’ll deal with that situation, that attention, that media aspect of it. The good, the bad attention you’ll get. Compared to Kaepernick, it’s like, he’s not really that good of a player to deal with.
It’s about time somebody in the NFL came out and said what McCoy just stated. Most players have stayed pretty silent about Kaepernick’s abilities not being overly great. Everybody wants to pretend he’s some superstar, who can’t get a job because the racist owners of the NFL hate him more than they love winning.
It’s fantasy land these Kaepernick supporters are living in. If Aaron Rodgers or Russell Wilson came out tomorrow in support of sharia law in America, both would still be on NFL rosters. Why? Because they are Hall of Fame caliber quarterbacks. That’s pretty much McCoy’s point in a nutshell.
Shouldn’t be too long now before people start calling for McCoy to be railroaded simply because he spoke the truth.
