After going into the second half down by ten with a
score of 24-14 and recovering from a once 17-0 deficit in the second quarter, the San Francisco 49ers rallied to the occasion and advanced to Super Bowl
XLVII. For the second week in a row the Atlanta Falcons surrendered a major
lead but have come up short this time to execute a last minute, game winning
Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore were the major players
for the 49ers but certainly not the only ones who fought hard and dug deep to
pull out the victory. Kaepernick showed poise in the pocket by going 16 of 21
on the day for 233 yards and a touchdown. Gore contributed heavily as well with
two touchdowns off of 21 touches for 90 yards reported ESPN.com.
The only question that now remains is who will meet
them in the biggest game of the NFL season, the Baltimore Ravens or the New
Will it be a Harbaugh Super Bowl or will the
Patriots deliver with their consistent, successful play and return to the Super
Bowl for the second year in a row?
The San Francisco 49ers are 5-0 in the Super Bowl
and they are now searching for win number six to tie them with the Pittsburgh
Steelers with the most Super Bowl rings of all-time.
The Super Bowl will be played on Sunday, February 3,
2013 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans; kickoff will be at 6:30

BIRD IS THE WORD
With the team trailing by three points late in the fourth quarter, San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore took the ball nine yards for the game winning touchdown. San Francisco’s defense was able to hold on to the lead and beat the Falcons 28-24. However, one of the best moments of the day came when Gore decided to celebrate his touchdown with the dirty bird. Check out the...
After leading his team down to score a go-ahead touchdown, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick wanted to get something to drink. Evidently, whatever was in that cup was not what he expected. The look on his face is utterly priceless, and it is even funnier that he casually puts the cup back and grabs another. You have to wonder, what was in that cup?

CollegeFootballGeek.com's Todd DeVries has been a fan of Colin Kaepernick since he won the Nevada quarterback job from Nick Graziano way back in 2007. Kaepernick went on to have an epic career at Nevada, becoming one of the most prolific quarterbacks in college fantasy football history.Now that he has surprisingly led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl, we thought it...
Erik Walden and Clay Matthews – Packers Spys?
I spy… a blitz?
The impetus for writing this post was to determine once and for all, how much actual “spying” of Colin Kaepernick did the Green Bay Packers do and who was involved? On twitter after the game, there was a wide disparity of opinions on this topic. Some bemoaned why the Packers didn’t employ a spy, others claimed...

Atlanta’s Matt Ryan has more overall experience, but San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick is clearly...
While much will be written about the 49ers young quarterback Colin Kaepernick, backup quarterback Alex Smith is the lone man out in San Francisco. And just think, it was only last year that Smith had them within a few minutes of going to the Super Bowl himself. Alas, it is time for Smith to explore other options.While Smith has had a less than stellar run in San Francisco, last year ...
The Atlanta Falcons were playing with house money. The monkey was off the Falcons back after barely beating the Seahawks last week. The Falcons were up 17 points and it looked like the home team had found a way to keep the 49ers highly ranked defense at bay. The Falcons defense was doing a great job containing Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers offense.
