My can of worms is overflowing ... in a recent issue of the News-Sentinel, I read that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick received an award for his performances on his knees at the games.

The award was given to an “inspirational and courageous player” and was decided by the players. The Len Eshmont Award is described as the team’s most “prestigious honor,” which is given to the player who best exemplifies the “inspirational and courageous play” of Len Eshmont.

How does Kaepernick’s sitting on his knee compare to the other former players like Jerry Rice, Steve Young, Joe Montana and Bryant Young who received this award in the past for their playing performance. The players should concentrate more on the game than giving awards to the “undeserving and disrespectful.”

Hopefully, Kaepernick’s followers and he will be watching the games from the stands and not playing the games next season.
