Wisconsin Born Kaepernick Beats Cali Born Rodgers
Sorry about your homecoming Aaron Rodgers. I’m sure one of these days you’ll be able to win in San Francisco. All the talk heading into this game was about Aaron Rodgers homecoming, how the 49ers were going to be upset they didn’t draft him back in 2005. Yes, that is right, Rodgers is still crying 7 years later. Well Aaron that was before Harbaugh’s time and he drafted Colin Kaepernick, who outperformed you all across the board. Even gifting your team a pick 6.
The second year in a row, the 49ers head to the NFC Championship Game. It will either be played in Atlanta next Sunday or San Francisco. I’m not going to waste much time typing, going to celebrate. So I’ll leave it with some statistics.
- Kaepernick rushed for 181 yards and 2 touchdown. The 181 yards was a post season record by a QB and also a franchise record for 49ers.
- Kaepernick threw for 263 and 2 touchdowns.
- Frank Gore rushed for over 100, the first time with Kaepernick at QB.
- 49ers had 500+ total yards a franchise post season record.
- Michael Crabtree had 119 and 2 touchdowns.
- Since the opening drive pick 6, the 49ers had 6 TDs and a FG in 9 drives.
- State Farm stock plummeted.
