Baltimore’s Backup QBs Are Throwing Ducks In Practice

While Colin Kaepernickcontinues to be blackballed by NFL teams, the Baltimore Ravens seem to be willing to throw their entire offensive season down the drain to continue with the NFL owners obvious collusion to punish him for not standing for the National anthem and creating all of this dialogue about race and social responsibility. 

Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti is so torn by the politics of the situation that he told the fans, Pray for us, as far as the Ravens finding a backup QB for Joe Flacco, who is out 3-to-6 weeks with a back injury.  

Your opinions matter to us, Bisciotti said according to the Baltimore Sun. Were very sensitive to it, and were monitoring it, and were trying to figure out whats the right tact.

While the Ravens figure out a way to execute the obvious, which would be to sign Kaepernick, reports out of Ravens camp say that the stooges they have brought in to compete for the backup job are not cutting it. 

ESPNs Diana Russini says she still feels like the Ravens signing Kaepernick is a possibility. The embattled QB already has the support of Ravens leaders such as Terrell Suggs

Ravens back at practice today. We will have an update on Joe Flacco and the potential signing of Colin Kaepernick later today https://t.co/vNVu7sfSHW

In Russini’s professional opinion, Baltimores aerial game is in big trouble. A lot of turkey arms, but no top level beef.

Quick update from watching the Ravens offense. It’s ugly, there isn’t 1 quarterback who can throw downfield. Defense catching everything

As the season gets underway, NFL teams that passed on Kaepernick will begin to realize that the losses they are accumulating and the horrible QB play they are witnessing isnt worth keeping a brother on the sidelines to prove a point. 

As bad as this situation is, patience is Kaepernicks best friend at this point. Eventually, some team will have to play fair and utilize the mans talents.
