The same day Colin Kaepernick announced plans to fight the NFL - accusing owners of colluding to keep him from getting a job - the 49ers had a rookie show why Kaepernick is still unemployed.
C.J. Beathard threw for 245 yards and a touchdown against the Redskins Sunday.
He took over before halftime and nearly led the 49ers to their first win of the season.
Every year, numerous college quarterback seek to replace current players on NFL squads.
If you don't produce, you don't stay employed.
Kaepernick could have stood for the anthem all year long in 2016, and still be behind Beathard on the depth chart.
And as a rookie, Beathard has more potential.
