I was watching the NFL network the other day and I saw the analyst say that Colin Kaepernick has won more road playoff games then any 49ers Quarterback in NFL History. I think that’s great and that’s definitely a milestone to be proud of if you’re Colin Kaepernick considering who his runner ups are. Joe Montana won all of his playoff games at home and so did Steve Young while Colin Kaepernick hasn’t had the pleasure of hosting a home game just yet but I think it’s way too soon to be comparing this guy to Joe Montana and Steve Young. Colin Kaepernick is a very talented Quarterback when he wants to be. He has all the skills to be great one day in the NFL but he is no Joe Montana. Joe Montana won four Superbowls for the 49ers. He never lost a Superbowl. He was actually close to flawless in them.
After Joe Montana Steve Young won 1 Superbowl for the 49ers in the 90’s and cemented his legacy as being one of the all time greats. Now we have Colin Kaepernick and he’s already led the 49ers to a Superbowl but lost to the Baltimore Ravens. In games like the Superbowl you are put to the test. This is your time to shine and he failed. The difference between Colin Kaepernick and the other two Quarterbacks is that when they were on the biggest stage of them all they stepped up and did what they had to do to win the game. Kaepernick did not do this but may have another shot at it this year which is incredible. Right now Colin Kaepernick is 0-1 at Superbowls but is undefeated in the playoffs. That’s a nice record to have but it doesn’t mean crap if you can’t win a Superbowl. It’s good that he has Superbowl experience and knows what it takes to play in one. Maybe that experience will help him lead his team there again this year but first they have to go through Seattle and we all know that won’t be easy.
I think the 49ers has the best offense in the NFC. They have so many dangerous players on their team and they have one hell of a defense backing them up too. This game coming up will be a good one and I can’t wait to see it. If the 49ers beat the Seahawks then there is a very good chance that Colin Kaepernick will get his first ring at the Superbowl. I think we’re going to see a Seahawk/Broncos Superbowl but anything can happen in the NFL. I’ll see you guys on game day.
