Why is Kaepernick contract a Steeler story?
I have NFL Network on, and they are reporting on CK's big, new contract. OK. Good for him. I think he is a pretty special QB. He almost won a Super Bowl (some think 9ers were robbed on the no PI call) and came one tipped pass away from beating the eventual Super Bowl champs last year (after which, the Seahawks destroyed Denver).
So, why is the news of this contract related enough to the Steelers that they did a whole story on it, interviewing Ben etc? Yea, I know, the gist of the story is, "If this non-Super-Bowl-winning QB is worth this much, how much should Ben be worth?" But that is nonsense. We all know the most recent contracts will be higher than deals signed years ago. Who doesn't know this? But here the media takes time to put mics in Ben's grill, asking what he thinks about CK's new deal. Ben just smiles and says something to the effect that Colin is out west and he is in Pgh, and yada, yada, yada, not concerned about what Colin is doing, etc. Doesn't Ben have TWO years left on his deal? Why is this even worth a news story? The media can really be retarded.
This got moved why? It is on topic. Oh, but discussion of the Pens is more on topic than this is? OK, there. Sniffing paint is bad for you.
