And THAT’s Why They Play the Game!

And THAT’s Why They Play the Game!

 

You know the old saying, “Stick a fork in it, it’s done?” Well, the Green Bay Packers have to be back at Lambeau Field freezing their butts off thinking…“Stick a Kap on it, it’s done!”

Oh, yes…this young, inexperienced QB who was seen as nothing more than a fluke since mid-November  2012, not only made records for this season, he made THE record for total QB yards (that’s the most since the beginning of the NFL, folks).

 

This is a QB who walked onto the field of Candlestick Park and played like he was the only one who actually was on the field. 425994Over 180 yards rushing – yes, that’s not a misprint – rushing. Add to that almost 300 yards passing. He ran for two touchdowns himself and threw for two others. It is safe to say that Colin Kaepernick was not only the Player of the Game, but made sure to announce to the Falcons, the Patriots and anyone else who may come along, that the 49ers are not about to go quietly into that goodnight this season.

 

Many are saying that those intricate tattoos may be some form of power. Perhaps instead of X-ray vision and a cape like Superman, those scrolls and pictures allow him to confuse the defense so that he basically runs down the field and scores a TD while the entire opposing team are jerking their heads all around the stadium like Harry Potter’s owl, trying to figure out who the heck has the ball they’re supposed to be chasing.

 

A dual-threat to say the least, the game between the two rivals from way back provided Colin with one of the most memorable playoff performances in history, as San Fran took out the Pack 45-31 on Saturday.  At 6-foot-6, this second-year player looked a great deal like a taller Steve Young as he ran right at the defense. It was as if he was throwing himself into contention for a wide receiver just in case the coach ever wanted to change him around in the line-up.

 

When he scored a TD on a 56-yard scramble, he actually looked as if the great Jerry Rice had returned to his old stadium. And when he threw balls that were so dead-on – right between the numbers – it was as if Joe Montana reemerged just to give the fans a look back at the best of the best.  But the kid wore that smile of Steve Young, who was always raring to go and revved up, like a ‘57 Chevy that was about to leave rubber on the road. In other words, Kap looks as if he was born to be a 49er and follow in the footsteps of the absolute geniuses in San Francisco’s history.

 

In addition, we are talking pure humility when he spoke with the press. What was his statement regarding his outstanding performance? “Anytime your teammates have confidence in you and they feel good about what you’re doing, it makes you feel like you’re doing the right things,” Kaepernick said – giving his team the real thumbs-up for his own performance.

Not only do the 49ers have him, however, they also still have a back-up that’s someone who will also head into the history books – Alex Smith – if only he is allowed to play again. Smith was and is a fantastic QB that any team would kill for. Unfortunately for him, when he sustained a concussion during a 24-24 tie with the Rams back on November 11th, Kap took his place and has been absolutely relentless ever since.

 

 

Will they beat Atlanta? Who the heck knows? There is some oddity in Atlanta that has allowed them to win games all year long that they probably shouldn’t have won. And unfortunately, Kap will have to leave Candlestick behind and head to that stadium which is so loud it actually sounds like a volcano is erupting indoors. But if anyone remembers the tenacity of Rice, skill of Montana and fire of Young, they already know that these greats will have no trouble following Kap onto that field this coming weekend and providing him with any help he needs in order to bring the 49ers back into the sunshine of the true champions they are.

 

Another reason why they play the game? Peyton Manning didn’t do it. I know…this must be a misprint, right? Nope. Denver Bronco fans must have thought that the thin, freezing-cold air had finally gotten to their brains when they saw the Ravens have the audacity to come into their home town and take the Super Bowl right out of Manning’s fingertips.

 

This was a football game, guys. There were fights, spats, guys tripping other guys, and the Darth Vader facemask on that one man who seems to never let a QB feel comfortable for even a second before he finds a way to be on top of them or standing in front of their ‘go-to’ receiver was everywhere.

 

The Baltimore Ravens didn’t even seem to feel the cold. Although, it was right up until the very last breath of the game that they were losing. It was nearly over when they scored that TD to lead them into OT. They were beyond excited and Peyton Manning looked like he was just hit by a freight train. Manning was the one sure thing this year (even though many will say its Tom Brady and the Patriots who are the only sure thing in the NFL). But this year, Manning can sit beside his brother and watch the Super Bowl play out, as they both talk about how they were absolutely robbed!

 

Either way, for 49ers fans the dream goes on! Hopefully, that dream will continue straight through to February 3rd, 2013, when they meet the AFC Champion at Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, and Kap – with his ‘bag of tricks’ offense, not to mention their exceedingly outstanding defense – finally brings another ring home to San Francisco! It would be about time!
