Colin Kaepernick watched Alex Smith lead the San Francisco 49ers to the NFC Championship Game last season. This year Kaepernick is the man and Smith is the understudy.
During Saturday’s record-setting playoff performance against the Green Bay Packers, we all saw that a star was born.
Lets look at how it all came together.
#1 His Confidence Grows Weekly
When some guys get their shot as the lead-dog they die on the vine like overexposed grapes.
Unlike Minnesota’s Joe Webb, Kaepernick has made the most of every opportunity that he has been given.
He is a special talent that can do a lot of great things.
When Alex Smith went down with a concussion and ultimately lost his job to the second-year man out of Nevada, the offense was quietly divided.
One of the most important pieces of that unit Vernon Davis, was as assertive as he could afford to be in supporting Smith.
To quell what could have been a diplomatic nightmare, Kaepernick earned the trust of his teammates by stepping up and dis...

Denver, New England and Green Bay each have a future Hall of Fame Quarterback on their roster. This weekend is going to have some great QB play.
The Wildcard round brought us some pretty bad games. The marque quarterbacks were on a bye so this week should be a lot better.
Here are the quarterbacks and how they stack-up
1) Manning - Peyton Manning is the MVP of the League...
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had quite a Saturday evening.

The 49ers won the game 45-31 advancing to the NFC Championship round.
The 49ers will wait until Sunday’s game between the Falcons and...
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick (17-31, 263 yards, 2 TD, INT, 14 carries, 181 yards, 2 rushing TDs) overcame an early interception Saturday night and ran himself into the records books to lead his San Francisco 49ers to victory against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers defense simply could not contain the scrambling Kaepernick as he left the pocket frequently, obliterating the record...
Colin Kaepernick is, at the moment, one of the most talked about figures in American sports. In the year of the dual-threat quarterback, he is the last of them standing in the NFL playoffs. He completed three passes during the entire 2011 season but has led the San Francisco 49ers to within one victory of their first Super Bowl berth in nearly two decades.
And to think: He could...
Move over Tebowing and Griffining, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has started a new hip trend for everyone to do.
The act of "Kaepernicking" is pretending to kiss your bicep as seen in the below photo of Colin performing the act during last weekend's Packers/49ers NFC divisional playoff game:
As you may figure, a website called "Kaepernicking...
Colin Kaepernick repeatedly raced past the Green Bay defense on option runs. Frank Gore barreled over the Packers on more traditional plays.
A week after holding 2,000-yard rusher Adrian Peterson in check, the Packers were run over by the San Francisco 49ers and sent home from the playoffs with a 45-31 loss Saturday night.
The Packers (12-6) came into the game brimming with confidence...

This evening’s divisional playoff game features the Green Bay Packers taking on the San Francisco 49ers. Weather will not play a role in tonight’s contest. Afternoon high temperatures of the low 50′s under sunny skies will give way to a clear night with temperatures in the mid-40′s. This playoff game will be one of three in the divisional round which features a rematch of...
Just like that, the Packers' season is over. After a win in the opening week of the playoffs, Green Bay's road to the Super Bowl was potentially lining up just as it did two years ago. This time, however, the Packers were unable to string together any victories on the road, with the team now looking for offseason answers for the second year in a row after a divisional round...
Further proof attending a professional football game can be hazardous to your health. The AP reports that 92 fans were kicked out of the 49ers playoff victory over the Green Bay Packers.
Medial staff at the stadium helped 62 people but there was no word on the severity of any of the injuries. There was also an arrest for an attempted car burglary and driving under the influence....
The Good: Colin KaepernickKaepernick terrorized the Green Bay Packers all night long with a dizzying array of scrambles and lethal throws from the pocket. He shook off an early interception that was returned for a touchdown by Sam Shields to set league and team records en route to a 45-31 shellacking of the Packers. He made plays and throws that Alex Smith could not even dream...
Coming into the season, it was thought that the 49ers defense would be great, but eventually their lack of offensive firepower could catch up with them against teams that don’t struggle to put points on the board. That notion was dispelled somewhat with San Francisco’s 30-22 win over the Packers in Week 1.
Of course, it was Alex Smith starting that Week 1 game. In the time since...
