I think you honed in on my "developed" comment. Matt Stafford may not have won in the playoffs, but I don't think anyone disputes that he is more developed than Kap.Matthew Stafford in 2014 had the 2nd best defense in the league.....and he did absolutely nothing with it. Also had the best receiver in the league. Once again, i'm not comparing Kap to these guys or saying which is better than who. I'm not starting a franchise with any of these quarterbacks. But you can't say "Oh Kap doesn't get a shot because he hasn't developed" when there are other qb's in this league who haven't developed. You can make as many excuses in the book you want. Some are valid. But there's no argument to be made for Kapernick not being on a team. None.
And I agree with you that Kap should be on someone's roster. But I also think if Kap were someone like Stafford (since you don't seem to think he has developed) he would be on a roster. I think it's a combination of the protest and where he is in his development. It's the same with Tim Tebow. If Tebow were an ounce better quarterback, he'd be on someone's roster.
