Why is Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy showing this amount of anger of the Colin Kaepernick question? Aaron Rogers said the unemployed activist needed another shot.
Call it the look of death, or death stare. However, you want to classify McCarthy’s facial expression is your business, but he was angry when he had to field a question about Kaepernick signing on with the team. Here’s why.
McCarthy and none of the NFL coaches want to be on record as pushing the Kaepernick discussion sideways or away from them because if they do, they will become part of the story of how the NFL doesn’t want Kaepernick
And so, at a news conference on Monday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy got the same question that has been asked of all teams with a need at the quarterback position this season: What about Colin Kaepernick?
The coach was none too pleased.
“Did you just listen to that question I just answered?” McCarthy said — having just commented about the other quarterbacks on the roster. “I got three years invested in Brett Hundley. Two years invested in Joe Callahan. The quarterback room is exactly where it needs to be, okay?”
So you can scratch Green Bay off of the list of potential destinations for Kaepernick. On Sunday, the former San Francisco 49ers QB filed a grievance against the NFL, alleging that teams have colluded to keep him out of the league.
“If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest – which the owners themselves made great theatre imitating weeks ago — should not be punished and athletes should not be denied employment,” said attorney Mark Geragos, who is representing Kapernick.

Why the rage? Injured starting quarterback Aaron Rogers said Kaepernick should have another chance in the NFL, so why not with the Packers, unless that was all theater?
