The Atlanta Falcons have already faced mobile quarterbacks like Cam Newton (twice), Robert Griffin III and Michael Vick this season, going 3-1 in the process. But when Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers offense invade the Georgia Dome for the NFC Championship on Sunday, the Falcons will be trying to contain a different beast.
Cornerback Dunta Robinson discussed Kaepernick’s skills as a runner and a passer, saying his raw speed is something that separates him from other quarterbacks in the league.
“The biggest difference between him and the all of the rest of the running quarterbacks we’ve seen, is the fact that he’s faster than those quarterbacks,” Robinson said on a nationwide conference call. “Which goes back to me saying how fundamentally sound (we have to play). If we give creases up, he can take a play that looks like a broken play, what looks like we have a play that’s covered up pretty well, and he can turn it into a 70-yard touchdown run.”
