Could someone please show Colin Kaepernick how to wear a hat?
Cranky old honky alert! I was stunned by Colin Kapernick’s performance against the Packers on Saturday night. We’ve seen the 49ers’ young QB put on a show in the regular season but the postseason is supposed to be different, right? The stakes are higher, pressure mounts, young QBs falter, or so the theory goes. Kaepernick, along with Russell Wilson, was outstanding in the Divisional round of the NFL playoffs. Kaepernick stole the thunder from Aaron Rodgers and followed up on his virtuoso performance with an appearance on the Fox halftime show of Sunday’s Seahaks/Falcons game wearing his dad’s hat.
Come on Colin! I don’t care about the tattoo sleeves but at least learn how to wear a hat. It’s for your own good. Tony Romo has been criticized for looking like a dumbass, and often playing like one, for years largely because of his backwards cap. At least Romo wears a hat that fits. Kaepernick looks like he should be sitting in an over-sized chair with his legs dangling as he licks on a gigantic rainbow lollypop. Is there any doubt that his mom has scribbled “Colin’s hat” in magic marker on the underside of the bill of that cap? CK7 may be one of the NFL’s most exciting young players but the 49ers’ PR department needs to get a hold of him before they send him out for any more nationally televised interviews.
The Falcons may get a good laugh at Kaepernick’s head wear but the game film from Saturday’s thrashing of Green Bay could turn their laughter to tears. Dumb looking hat or no the young man should provide a helluva test for the Atlanta defense.
