5 starting quarterbacks who aren’t better than Kaepernick

The time continues to tick waiting for Colin Kaepernick to get signed. One of the biggest excuses for Kaepernick not being signed is because he wants to be a starter while only having the abilities of a backup. So, rolling out decided to list five starting quarterbacks that Kaepernick is currently better than.

  • Tyrod Taylor

Taylor is the best quarterback on this list as he finished in the Top 10 of the league last season for highest QB rating. However, he starting in four more games than Kaepernick and only threw three more touchdown’s than Kaepernick did last season. Taylor has never been to the postseason in his career.

  • Brian Hoyer

Hoyer threw for six touchdowns and zero interceptions in six games last season as relief for the Chicago Bears and Jay Cutler. Hoyer has a 0-1 career record in the playoffs. In 2014, Hoyer threw 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions as the starting quarterback of the Cleveland Browns. Kaepernick has never had a season where he’s thrown more interceptions than touchdowns. Now it appears he may win Kaepernick’s former job with the 49ers.

  •  Mike Glennon

In his first year as a starter, Glennon threw for a career-high 19 touchdowns. That same season, Kaepernick threw for a career-high of 21 touchdowns while starting in three more games. Kaepernick also threw two fewer interceptions than Glennon. Glennon has never been to the postseason in his career.

  •  Jared Goff

The 2016 No. 1 NFL pick got off to a late start in his first L.A. Rams season. In seven games, Goff threw for five touchdowns and seven interceptions. Goff has never won a game as a starter in his career.

  • Anyone that starts for the Jets

The Jets starting job is now down to Christian Hackenberg, Josh McCown, and Bryce Petty. Last season, Petty threw for three touchdowns and seven interceptions. Hackenberg hasn’t taken a snap in a regular season NFL game yet. Josh McCown threw for six touchdowns and six interceptions.last year.

None of the aforementioned quarterbacks have started in a Super Bowl like Kaepernick did five years ago.
