Colin Kaepernick faced the media for the final time of the 2012 season on Tuesday in the 49ers locker room. The second-year quarterback spoke about his first Super Bowl experience in just his 10th game as a starter, as he nearly guided the team back from a 22-point deficit in the second half.
Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee examined Kaepernick’s exit day gathering with the media.
“Kaepernick still was simmering and on edge after cleaning out his locker Tuesday,” Barrows wrote. “Wide receiver Kyle Williams said Kaepernick already was maniacal when it came to offseason training, so having a Super Bowl title within his grasp will boost that intensity level a few more degrees. Kaepernick said he will start training next week in Atlanta, where he prepared for the scouting combine and the draft in 2011.”
