Morning Coffee, brewed in Philly: it’s time for Washington, down to its last healthy quarterback—who just got here and doesn’t know many of his teammates’ names, much less the plays—to sign Colin Kaepernick:
The Redskins would re-sign Joe Theismann before they signed Colin Kaepernick.
I think when you were bringing somebody in to back up Colt and Colt is your guy to give you a chance to keep this ship moving forward and maybe sneak into the playoffs, Kaepernick didn’t make sense.
I’ve already made the argument that Washington should sign Kaepernick, who — like Sanchez before Monday night — hadn’t played a snap since the 2016 season.
.@JPFinlayNBCS: Colin Kaepernick is the best of the available options as the Redskins look to sign another QB. 📝:
Rationally, the Redskins should absolutely try to sign Colin Kaepernick
It was then Sanchez who had to relieve the injured Colt McCoy in Monday night's 28-13 loss to Philadelphia after McCoy broke his leg in the first half and is now reportedly also lost for the season.
As Mark Sanchez fell flat on his face in a key MNF battle for Washingtons playoff hopes, the team showed how far it was willing to go to not explore Colin Kaepernick (by @ConorOrr)
I would like to see Colin Kaepernick on the field just to see what he has, to see if it would be worthwhile to be a long-term backup to Alex Smith, again. - @GlassJoeJP
The fact that the Redskins are willing to sign Reuben Foster and not Colin Kaepernick is utterly atrocious. This lifelong Skins fan hopes they do not win another game.
There’s all sorts of things, but I think now the Colin Kaepernick discussion should at least be had.”
Legal impact of neither Redskins nor any other team signing Colin Kaepernick? By itself, no impact. Each team can decide to not sign him, including because they dont like his politics. But if two or more teams agree to not sign him? Collusion. Explainer:
I don’t know what Colt McCoy’s injury isnor how long he’ll be out,but this would be the perfect time and opportunity for the @nfl and the @Redskins to offer Colin Kaepernick and opportunity to play.He’s clearly far more qualified than most of the other options. Prove no collusion
Washington didnt do everything in its power to find a playable quarterback, which is why the team likely cost itself a chance at a playoff spot (by @ConorOrr)
Now, we won’t find out whether that’s true, and the starter — the only healthy quarterback on the roster — is a guy known more for a fumble he made because, years ago, he collided with his own lineman’s posterior than he is for any throw he has completed in the NFL.
So the quarterback discussion resurfaces for Washington, again with one prominent name at the top of the list of possibilities.
Colt McCoy, the quarterback who waited four years to get a chance to start again, broke his right leg on what looked like an innocuous first-quarter sack in which he slipped — but then had that leg whip around the leg of Philadelphia safety Malcolm Jenkins.
The Redskins signed Rueben Foster a few hours after his latest domestic violence charge. But now, down to their 3rd string QB, they won’t sign Colin Kaepernick because that would be controversial.
The developments of the past three weeks — beginning with Smith’s devastating injury Nov. 18 against Houston, then McCoy’s three-interception performance in a Thanksgiving loss at Dallas, followed by McCoy’s injury Monday night — make you wonder about the future of the position in Washington, which makes you wonder about the future of the entire franchise.
Can Washington draft a quarterback — essentially, Smith’s replacement, even as he has three years remaining on his deal?
@KG4424 @Redskins @Kaepernick7 @shaunking Hows this? Kaepernick remains in great shape, trains daily and “has always been ready to play if he gets the call,” a person with knowledge of his efforts to return to the NFL told USA TODAY Sports A.J. Perez on Tuesday.
“Obviously the biggest name is going to be Colin Kaepernick.
