Pay Kaepernick!??? Close the Window!!

First Post ever but here goes:

Paying Colin Kaepernick 20 million a year is crazy. You want to know why it seems like the Patriots are in the AFC Championship game every year?? Here's your answer:

YEAR BASE S. BONUS MISC. CAP HIT DEAD
2013 1,000,000 9,200,000 3,600,000 13,800,000 46,600,000
2014 2,000,000 9,200,000 3,600,000 14,800,000 32,800,000
2015 7,000,000 6,000,000 - 13,000,000 18,000,000
2016 8,000,000 6,000,000 - 14,000,000 12,000,000
2017 9,000,000 6,000,000 - 15,000,000 6,000,000

Thats what he makes every year. And you know what?? The Patriots have money every year to sign the Revis's and Browners' of the world. So yeah.... Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, Matt Ryan all make more. (Not to mention that Kap is better than all three of them!) But does anyone in their right mind think they are ever going to make a Superbowl run? Hell no! And what about the Quarterbacks that got paid after winning one?? Eli Manning, Joe Flacco, and Aaron Rodgers are now single handedly chewing up upwards of 16% of their teams salary cap. Kap needs to wake up!! Do you want Kap to play behind Mannings or Rodgers' O-line? Or throw to Joe Flaccos Recievers? Look at those teams. All play in mediocre divisions and they still can't put together 10 win seasons. So all you guys out there saying pay the man.... lets get serious. Winning will bring the man way more money in endorsements while allowing the team to field a contender year in and year out. Or we could always sell the farm like the Broncos for one last shot before going into the salary cap abyss. Just my two sense! Go niners!
