Filed Under The We Already Knew This File: Colin Kaepernick Does Not Take Criticism Well

Coming off easily the worst year of his young career, Colin Kaepernick finds himself at a crossroads this year. He just signed a huge contract, lost his head coach and most of the offensive staff and now he’s getting into a Twitter fight with someone named Stephen Batten. Not exactly the start to the off season 49ers were looking for. Kaepernick might honestly be the worst athlete in history in regards to taking criticism. If he’s playing great, he seems like a fun guy to be around and interview, and we’ve already seen how great he can be when he’s on. When he’s playing bad? Moody city, population Colin. He snapped at reporters all season long and looked generally lost on the field, which was a big reason why the 49ers went from the NFC Championship in January of 2014 to 8-8 and home on the couch in January of 2015. I’m glad Kaepernick is already hitting the weight room and studying film, but the biggest thing he needs to work on is his attitude. Do you think you’d see Tom Brady trading jabs with some random guy on Twitter after a bad loss or a bad season? Kaepernick needs to study the off the field habits of the great quarterbacks who have been successful in this league and try his best to emulate them. If he doesn’t, it’s going to antoher long season for the 49ers.

Browns Fans Post “QB Wanted” Ad on Craigslist

(Source) Hello, and thanks for reading.
Have you played pro football? College ball? High school? Pee-wee?
Have you played Madden before?
Do you sort of kind of know some of the rules of football? If yes keep reading. If no…well also keep reading! We will take ANYONE. This could turn into a regular gig for the right person.
The Cleveland Browns as you may have noticed are having problems scoring points on offense consistently. We are deciding that we actually want to win this year and that we have a real shot at it too. 3 wins in 6 games!? We were expecting maybe 1/3 of those wins for the whole year, but SOMEHOW we have a shot still. Here’s the thing…our defense is sick nasty, but we’ve got problems under center…well one problem. Brandon Weeden. If you’re sick of seeing desperation heaves to the sidelines, countless sacks after superb coverage, and underhanded lightly tossed interceptions in the 4th quarter then please come apply! If you can throw a ball, come apply! If you can’t, come anyway! We can teach you the basics….throwing the ball to the guy who has the same color shirt as you. Throwing the ball reasonably close to a receiver that’s WIDE OPEN, throwing the ball more than 3 yards on 3rd and 16. Think you got what it takes? Come on down! You’re the next contestant on Cleveland Quarterbacks!
Please no redheads, people named Brett, or any U. Of Florida alum.

This is kind of a new low even for Cleveland. Obviously this a joke but the fact that this entire description of what the Browns need at QB is true makes it sad. I also take partial responsibility for this situation. My fantasy players have what I like to call the “Ryan stink” on them. Guess who I picked up at 5 o’clock Thursday afternoon to be my starting quarterback that night? Brian Hoyer. 4 hours later he tore everything in his knee and the 40 year old college graduate Brandon Weeden came in. I think I owe it to the city of Cleveland to throw my hat in the ring for this job. I’ve never played football at any level but I’m a great defensive coordinator in Madden so it’s basically the same thing. I’d also never do this

You know where to find me Cleveland.
