Colin Kaepernick was sacked five times and completed just 1 of 5 passes for a total of four yards against the Chicago Bears at Soldier’s Field. Things got so bad Kaepernick went home and tried to commit suicide but someone intercepted the bullet. Kaepernick has actually been very good for the 49ers. Thanks to his total ineptness. they will be in good position to draft a quarterback in the next draft. They need one. The 49ers had their worst passing game since 1963 with a grand total of 6 net yards passing. Kaepernick spent most of the game in which he participated on the ground.
It’s ironic that it should happen at Soldier’s Field.
Soldier Field was named as such at the request of the Gold Star Mothers to honor the men lost in World War I. The Doughboy statue, originally placed in Garfield Park, was restored and installed in Soldier Field as part of the stadium renovation. Doughboy is an informal term for a member of the United States Army of Marine Corps, especially members of the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I.
Kaepernick will begin his new career as a former NFL player at the end of this season.
