Russell Wilson Wouldn't Mind Having Colin Kaepernick As His Backup, As If That Were An Actual Question
Wait just a damn minute. Do you mean to tell me that Russell Wilson would be totally fine with having his former division rival ride the bench behind him? That doesn't sound right at all. Why would a player want someone he was once compared to - ad nauseam - taking up an inferior roster spot while having no realistic chance of pushing him for the starting job? It's not like a professional athlete would ever be so petty to view his spot a top the depth chart as the official nail in the coffin to the now antiquated debate of who was the better young, mobile quarterback in the NFC West, so why would Russell Wilson agree to letting Colin Kaepernick join the roster as nothing more than an insurance policy? Doesn't make a lick of sense to me. I know that I - personally - would absolutely loathe being placed in a position of direct superiority over someone who was arguably considered better than me in the not-so-distant past. Relinquishing the role of clear #2 to a guy that was once a 1(a) or 1(b) - depending who you asked in 2012 - in a heated, ongoing feud between proud, competitive franchises? Other than an ego boost that could shoot his self esteem through the glass ceiling by which black quarterbacks are viewed, what's in it for Russell Wilson?
