Get used to hearing about Colin Kaepernick.
San Francisco’s starting quarterback continues to become a household name now that the second-year player is gracing one of four regional covers for Sports Illustrated.
It’s certainly well-deserved. The youngest starting quarterback in 49ers postseason history had a game for the ages against the Green Bay Packers – 181 rushing yards – the most by a quarterback in any game. Ever.
Furthermore, Kaepernick threw two touchdown passes and rushed for two more, joining Hall of Fame quarterback Otto Graham and Jay Cutler as the only players to throw and rush for a pair of touchdowns in a postseason game.
Now, Kaepernick is 6-2 as a starter with a 98.7 QB rating to go with 12 touchdown passes , four interceptions, as well as 419 rushing yards and four rushing scores.
