WATCH: Colin Kaepernick Had This To Say About Being Benched While Deion Sanders Rips Coaching Staff


Deion Sanders is no stranger to controversy, so it’s no surprise that he put out yet another controversial tweet while taking a shot at the San Francisco 49ers coaching staff for not only benching QB Colin Kaepernick but for there simplified scheme…

Sanders has supported Kaepernick in recent weeks, as he instead placed blame on upper management saying:

“This San Francisco 49ers football team, the management and ownership, should be ashamed. This team is three years removed from the Super Bowl and they’re putting out that product,” Sanders said on CBS and NFL Network.

“Colin Kaepernick has nowhere to go, nowhere to throw. We’re here, seeing this live,” Sanders continued. “No one’s open and they’re not blocking, so this is pathetic for a team that was in the Super Bowl just a few years ago. They lost a darned good coach and some really good players.”

Kaepernick met with media yesterday and said he didn’t necessarily agree with having to take a step back as the team’s backup, “I’m not out of breath so I don’t understand that reference,” Kaepernick told CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco.

Maiocco then followed up that question on whether or not he felt that he was the scapegoat like many believed that Jim Harbaugh was last year. “I don’t pass judgement on that, I do everything I can to help this team win.”
