Colin Kaepernick made Head Coach Jim Harbaugh look like a genius Saturday. Harbaugh stuck with Kaepernick as starting quarterback even after former starter Alex Smith returned from injury."It feels good. We're one step closer to where we want to be," Kaepernick said. "I feel like I had a lot to prove. A lot of people doubted my ability to lead this team." Harbaugh didn't doubt and now neither does anyone else.Kaepernick rewarded his coach and 49er fans with 444 yards, and four of the teams six touchdowns, en route to a 45-31 San Francisco victory over the Green Bay Packers in the Saturday divisional play-off game.Kaepernick set a single game rushing record by a quarterback with 181 yards and the 49er's set a post-season franchise record for yards with 579.

A first impression is a must. It’s where everyone formulates an opinion.

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.

And to think: He could...
