He has every right to raise awareness to any issue he wants. He just has to be able to live with the consequences if things don't turn out the way he envisioned. It was his choice to protest on the sidelines, knowing that it would anger many Americans with the way he was doing it. It's the fans choice not to like the guy anymore if they don't want to. Which in turn leads to owners not wanting him.

I have no problem with anyone voicing their opinion however they want. That's their right. I may not like the way they do it, but it is their right so I will respect their decision. I just don't want to hear about how he's being wrongly held out of the NFL because of certain actions when they were his choice. Every action has a consequence. If you can't deal with the possibility of never playing again, maybe you should choose a different avenue to voice your opinion. You can't do stuff that people won't like and still expect everyone to like you. The world just doesn't work like that. You choose your own path, so whatever happens to you is on you.

It's pretty much the same story as Tebow. Kap is a more talented QB than Tebow, but they are the same in the fact that they both bring the circus to town with them. Tebow's was more positive stuff, but the constant clamoring of everyone wanting him to be the starter when he clearly wasn't starter material was enough for teams to stay away from him as a backup QB. The difference with Tebow though is that he didn't try to say that he's being wrongly held out of the NFL because of his beliefs. He went about his business and found other career paths because he wasn't going to change what he believed. I respect that a lot. And I'm a pretty anti-Tebow guy. I'm usually skeptical of the over the top shows of Christianity. I always feel like they are trying to compensate and cover up for some serious flaws somewhere. He's avoided any kind of controversy at all though so I may have been wrong about him.
Very well said Clutch.    Good post.

How long is Flacco supposed to be out?  I thought it was like one pre season game.

Kap is free to express whatever he wants, he is not however free from the consequences of his freedom of speech.

I think there's a lot of people that don't get that. Freedom of speech isn't actually free. It's free in the sense that you are allowed to say whatever you want, but there is a cost that comes with it. Once you open that bag, everyone else is free to jump on you.

I would think that's, certainly, true that they'd even look at CK. His optimum playing style is so different from Flacco that it doesn't make sense unless you truly believe your current backup cannot perform and anything is an improvement.
when Kaepernick makes the roster, at that point talk your milquetoast smack, until then, realize that Mallett makes more money than you do in 10 years, maybe 15....in other words, the kid could buy and sell you out of his front pocket

1. He's not a kid.
2. He'll still need a Scantron.
3. He's been a horrid NFL QB.

As predicted.

Call him what you want, but a career backup QB takes skill. If he wasn't good enough, he would be out of the league. And I hate that he has a win over my Steelers.

Sigh...

In hindsight that was an unnecessary slap shot fired from the wrist which I'll leave up for accountability.

But here's the thing: Mallett is not good.  He's never been recognized as even adequate.

He was drafted late -- as it should be -- and later traded for a six pack of lukewarm Pabst.  He, then, wholly flamed out at a QB starved organization before resurfacing as Flacco's caddy where they're looking to augment his presence as backup because he's bad.

The Mallett apologism is as bad as that for Petrino.  Folks should be embarrassed and, instead, they're riding his jock.  Shameful.

zeke, the point is - he's in the NFL and has been for several years. He's not a superstar, instead he's a career backup. Some would say that is the best job in the world. No wear and tear on the body - practice for a living.

Can you not just be happy for him? It's obvious you hate him for one reason or another....or is it jealousy?

When you are the new guy and show up in Camp and immediately set yourself apart because you have the strongest arm by far, I'm sure a mindset hits about right then. I hope he takes to coaching and just plays football.

wow, that's probably the most biased sports article I've ever seen.

"total meltdown" because he threw a towel?

no quotes from Mallett, and a suggestion written into the headline saying Mallett should be replaced by Kap? two days into camp?

stunned.  defintely seems like an coordinated agenda.

Yeah it's looking like the Ravens want to blow the whole season so they can get the number one pick next year. Ha ha.

The point is this board was already picking out where his bust would be in Canton. I got flamed anytime I said Joe Ferguson is the best QB to come from the Razorbacks.

Who in the world would flame you for that?  It's not even close.  Joe has had the best NFL career of any former Hog (perhaps all others combined).

I would argue Tarvaris Jackson has had the 2nd best NFL career. 

It's been bleak, but then there are only so many QBs in the league.

RM has been a serviceable backup.  Something many great college QBs never accomplish.

Not sure how much football you actually watch, but third round isn't a late pick.  The Pats traded him because he was on the back end of his contract and they were going to lose him regardless.  Teams generally don't offer up a lot in a trade for a player in that position.

I have nothing for the 'flamed out" part.  That's kinda hard to argue with....

Not sure why he's getting all the hate from hogs.  He help put the university into national contention and is having a good career in the NFL.  He's going into his 7th year so he must be doing something right to stay around.  I thought he would have been a starter by now... but that's not how the cards have fallen for him.  He still has a chance to do some good things career wise, worst comes to worst he's saved a lot of money being a backup.

Funny how people feel Kap should just go away because of the issues he raised. Not let's look at the problem because looking in the mirror makes me uncomfortable.  He's the anti-OJ didn't hurt or kill anyone.   I guess athlete's should just run and jump for our pleasure.

I've not heard a single solitary person, in Arkansas, or the entire world for that matter, even remotely pan the issues that Kapernick brings up. I don't read
KKK or skinhead racist newspapers, so there may actually be someone hiding that has. Certainly no one here at Hogville though. So nono Nino. Don't try to
guilt anyone into thinking it is wrong to dislike Kapernick for the manner in which he disgraced himself, by not only kneeling during our country's national
anthem, but then turning around and not even voting during the presidential election. Although the cause he brings up and supports are very worthy, his
utter stupidity in the way he went about it, is reason enough to believe that he's not smart enough to guide any football team as a quarterback.

Football is played for two reasons. The pleasure of the player.......and  the pleasure of the fans that watch the game. Period.

To paraphrase a prior poster, Hog fans were already crafting this guy's Canton bust whereas -- in reality -- he is a bust if held to their expectation(s).

And they should just admit it.

And he stole your girl? What exactly happened between you and Big M?

Are you mad you live in KC and Mallett isn't a Chief?

He's been in the league for 6-7 years.....call him what you want, I call him successful.

How many of your posts are about Mallett being a "bust" and that "you called it?"

1. Absolutely no one cares. No one texts their buddies and lets them know Zeke on Hogville "called it."
2. Your raging hard-on for Mallett's situation is a little alarming.
3. There've been a lot more NFL QBs who were expected to do way more than Mallett has, and wish they could've been around as long as he has.

Didn't you also say Hunter Henry's career would echo Matt Spaeth's? Henry had more yards and 2 fewer touchdowns in his rookie year than Spaeth had in his whole career. I think you're wrong about that one. Hell, I'll say that I "called it right from the jump."

Reply?

Try "decade long NFL career."

Henry will be fortunate to be Spaeth.

Oh yeah.

Back on topic, I just watched coach Harbaugh's PC today.

Get the strong sense they are worried about Flacco, a herniated disk in the back is tricky. It could well
be a long lingering injury. They are looking are many QBs, it may not be just to replace Mallett who got off to a slow start, but to add depth for the season.

Here are Mallett's comments on the QB situation:

Have you compared stats for our QBs? Or are you just going to say Joe had a nice NFL career so he wins? He had 327 completions at Arkansas. 327. Woooowwww.

You thinking Henry wont be a better than average TE in the NFL AFTER last year just shows how much of a moron you are and how much of a bias you have against hogs having a career after the hogs. 

You must just be jealous of guys that make it

I assumed when he said "come from the Razorbacks" he meant pro career.  Joe wins that and its not close.

While a Razorback?  That's a different story, more difficult to answer since the Hogs were never really a passing team until Bobby Petrino was hired.  Well, expect for a few years when Joe was on the offensive coaching staff.

You thinking Henry wont be a better than average TE in the NFL AFTER last year just shows how much of a moron you are and how much of a bias you have against hogs having a career after the hogs. 

You must just be jealous of guys that make it

"Hunter Henry will be fortunate to have a career like Matt Spaeth." That's a true statement of him or anyone.

As for Ryan Mallett? He was just specifically called out by Richard Sherman as bad. Sure, that's just a player -- and one who can annoy -- but closer to truth than that he's good.

Sherman is showing his agenda and it's to stand up FOR Kap, nothing else.  Nobody is claiming Mallett as great here, no one has even tried that.  You just can't seem to give the guy credit for making an NFL career out of his life.

Mallett is a former Razorback on an NFL roster for the last several years. It's good for him and good for us to have him there. It can only help with recruiting.

Anyone bashing him is an envious, short-sighted d-bag.

That's crap, he's helped nothing. ("Career?" Laughable. He's been run out of two organizations and a 3rd is actively seeking competent QB help.)

Anyone claiming he has accomplished anything but shame is a shortsighted apologist.

Many qb's wash out in the first 3....he's still in the league = accomplishment

No need to be an apologist - facts are facts

He beats the average:
"Since 2008, players have been retiring earlier than in previous years. The quarterback position has seen the most change from about six years to 3 years and one month. The average career across all positions fell from 4.99 years to 2.66, according the Pro-Football-Reference data observed by the WSJ."

It must be painful to dislike someone that much, not sure what brings that on, did he do something to you?

-Someone who is drafted in the NFL accomplishes a pretty big thing.
-Someone who stays in the NFL after their rookie contract accomplishes something
-Someone who stays in the NFL long enough to get the retirement and other great benefits, has CERTAINLY accomplished a lot. 

So, yet again, zeke, we make you look like a complete fool with your hatred for no reason.  No one is claiming mallett is going to canton.  But the guy is a razorback and is in the nfl.  Quit being such a [CENSORED].

You've got to be a very good QB to stay on an NFL roster.
There are a ton of ex-college QB's who would love to be Mallett.

He's been in the league since 2011 / he's making 1.5 million per year / he's qualified for NFL retirement.
He's 29 years old.
That's pretty darn successful in my book.

He's most likely accomplished more financial goals than Zeke will accomplish in his entire life, yet zeke said he's accomplished nothing .

Zeke needs no help in making himself look like a fool.  He's mastered that skill all by himself.

The truth is the Head coach at Houston did not want Mallett in the first place  but his superiors overruled him and signed Mallet anyway. Being highly ticked off about being overruled, the HC never gave Mallett a fair shake and went behind his back to sign another QB to replace him. That HC should have been fired.


Finally a post.......from someone who know what he is talking about.

Not to mention at this point he's taken far less hits. Meaning his brain is intact and his body is in good shape. When he does retire he won't be feeling nearly as bad as many QB's. Make lots of money, NFL pension, can play ball with my kids? Winner.

...
I would argue Tarvaris Jackson has had the 2nd best NFL career. 
...

Lamar McHan started 70 games until he was injured and beaten out by Bart Starr.

Tavaris Jackson started 34 games.

Can't really compare other stats between those two.
