Colin Kaepernick claims Seattle Seahawks have a weak defense

We all know Colin Kaepernick isn't a fan of Richard Sherman, and now it seems he is taking aim at the whole of the 'Legion of Boom' that is the Seattle Seahawks defense. 

It sounds rich coming from a quarterback who literally threw away his chance of making the Super Bowl with a ridiculous throw that was tipped by Sherman, and subsequently intercepted by Malcolm Smith.

Kaepernick had the tenacity to question a unit that beat him, and he went further giving advice to Peyton Manning ahead of the Broncos meeting with Seattle in Super Bowl XLVIII. 

"I think there are a lot of opportunities in the inside zones that (the Broncos will) have a chance to exploit, and when (the Seahawks) get their nickel defense out there, they'll have some good match-ups.

"They have the receivers to match up really well with (Seattle's) defensive backs, and they'll have opportunities to make some big plays," Kaepernick told the New York Post.

Seattle's secondary depth is arguably unmatched. However, Denver can call upon Wes Welker and Julius Thomas to complement two awesome outside receivers in Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker.

Kaepernick believes that cornerbacks Walter Thurmond and Jeremy Lane can be exposed if they are spread out by the Broncos.

"From what I've seen of Denver, the depth they have at receiver and the playmakers they have on offense are better than some of the defensive players in (the Seahawks') nickel defense," Kaepernick said.

Oh, and finally Kaepernick added: "Go, Peyton!"
