    Colin Kaepernick defenders get vocal after Cardinals reportedly sign Blaine Gabbert

    The Cardinals probably didn't think they were going to start a small controversy when they agreed to terms with Blaine Gabbert on Wednesday, but that's exactly what happened.

    According to ESPN.com, Arizona agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the veteran quarterback, who was signed to compete with Drew Stanton and Zac Dysert for the right to back up Carson Palmer.

    After news of Gabbert's deal came out, the controversy that followed had nothing to do with him and everything to do with another free agent quarterback: Colin Kaepernick.

    If you watched the 49ers play last season, it was pretty clear that Kaepernick was the best quarterback on a roster that also included Gabbert. That's not saying much, but it is saying that Kaepernick is better than Gabbert.

    I would rather have Gabbert as my backup too. Kaepernick may be a little better on the field but backups spend most of the time in film rooms, helping the coaching staff and on the sideline.....something he may not be cut out for.

    That and the owners looked in the box and a black marble came out.

    What are people defending Kaepernick against? Some other guy got picked for a team, and people are upset? Isn't Kaepernick already on the 49ers?

    Gabbert took a job for the league minimum. Kaepernick hasn't even announced an intention to play next year or given any indication how much money he wants.

    Pete (thinks "showing up" is half the battle here)
