LAST RESORT: The NFL’s Most Hated Quarterback Just Got HUGE News

on

VIA| The continuing saga of Colin Kaepernick’s “Black Lives Matter” protest of our national anthem is going to get ramped up this weekend, as the 49ers have made a HUGE announcement angering many and pleasing very few.

Kaepernick has inspired all sorts of reactions to his kneeling protest during the national anthem at his games, including other players starting their own protests. Now he’s going to be in the blazing spotlight!!

 Here’s what they just announced:

That means America’s most hated quarterback will take the field and take over for Blaine Gabbert, who has consistently gotten worse and worse. The team’s coach made it clear that this was a “football decision” and not a political one, because you KNOW he’s going to get criticized for it:

The head coach of the San Francisco 49ers announced that Colin Kaepernick will start at quarterback in a Week 6 road game against the Buffalo Bills.

“We’re going to make a move at quarterback, and we’re going to start Colin this week,” Kelly said. “(We’re) going to give him an opportunity to run with the ones. I believe you’ve got to do it at the beginning of the week just because of how reps are distributed.”

The coach said rumored contract discussions with Kaepernick had no impact on the move from Blaine Gabbert to Kaepernick as the team’s starter.

“It’s a football decision,” Kelly said.

But it’s hard not to mix in politics, since the NFL has punished so many other players for far lesser offenses, but leaves Kaepernick to keep insulting law enforcement and the national anthem.
