Since week eleven of the NFL regular season the San
Francisco 49ers’ quarterback sensation, Colin Kaepernick, has replaced one man,
shocked thousands, and has set records for many more young men to come. Kaepernick
rose to the ranks of starting quarterback after Alex Smith suffered a
concussion in a game against the St. Louis Rams. While Smith was forced to sit the
49ers organization moved forward without him and behind the athleticism of
Kaepernick has helped his team win six of their last
eight games, cemented himself as the franchise quarterback, and has led the 49ers
to their second straight NFC championship game. In the process of lifting his
team to victory in the postseason Kaepernick also set the record for the most
rushing yards, 181, in any NFL game by a quarterback, reported Gregg Rosenthal
of NFL.com. Colin’s record-breaking performance eclipsed the previous mark set
by Michael Vick in 2005 of 119 yards, according to the Associated Press,
against the St. Louis Rams.
So what’s next for the fiery quarterback?
Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers will head to Atlanta
to take on Matt Ryan and the highly motivated Falcons who won their first
playoff game in eight years against the Seattle Seahawks. It all happens this Sunday,
January 20th at 3:00 p.m. on Fox.
