Last night during Super Bowl 47, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick looked young and showed his first signs of being a little rattled during a game. Kaepernick still had an awesome game with 302 yards passing and 62 rushing yards.  After the game in a move that displays class, maturity, and leadership, Kaepernick put it all on him, and told CSNBay Area that he made to many mistakes for his team to win. “I feel like I made too many mistakes for us to win,” Kaepernick said. “Things weren’t working in the first half,” Kaepernick said. “We just didn’t finish our drives. We turned the ball over a couple times. That was the difference in the game.” “We stopped ourselves,” Kaepernick said. Colin Kaepernick is only 25 years old, and even with a Super Bowl run has still only started 11 total ball games,  He will be fine and one of the more dynamic playmaking quarterbacks in the NFL for years to come.

  • I think Colin did an incredible job for a player in his position! You can't fault a guy in his situation and ony 25 years old. Harbaugh has had what, 2 years playoff experience and his brother has 8? Make no mistake: the Niners should NOT have been the favorites. As a Niner fan I can say in all objectivity that the Niners (given their current personnel) should be back in the playoffs again next season. Lets see what Colin does in the off season. Flacco... will he get better? Maybe... become a mobile QB? No. Can Colin be a better pocket passer... Yes! Lewis is gone... so goes the heart of the Ravens. You don't just replace Lewis. I believe the Niners will be back... Do it Colin!
  • A lot of poise and class for a 2nd year man.
  • I'm not saying CK doesn't have class; I think he does; but it's not class to take full responsibility for a TEAM losing a game. That's just youthful inexperience talking. You win as a TEAM and you lose as a TEAM. Had the 49ers won, would he have taken full credit for it? He can apologize for his mistakes, but he wasn't the only one making them. For example, he had nothing to do with Torrey Smith being able to catch a badly underthrown pass, fallng down backwards, then being able to get up and still scamper into the end zone.
    All week long he was telling the media not to focus on him, that it was all about the team and not him. Now he wants to say it was all him? It's an admirable attitude, but it's wrong.
  • Get your facts Mokoda it was Jacoby Jones that did the scampering. CK should have showed a little more poise on the last series, he was probably thinking which tat to kiss when if he got his team into the endzone.
