When the lights went out at the Super Bowl you could tell the Ravens head coach was worried about his team cooling off and Colin Kaepernick and his San Fransisco 49ers team gaining an advantage in the game. At the time the Ravens were in full control until the lights went out. That wasn’t the reason the 49ers and Kaepernick were able to come back and make a game out of the Super Bowl. Kaepernick and his 49ers are a team that always fights back in the second half. Look what they did in Atlanta.
Kaepernick has the confidence in his 49ers offense to get things moving, no matter how many points they are down by. There is no quit in the 49ers team and had they called better plays when it was 3rd and goal with just over 2 minutes left in the game the results would have been different. Why they didn’t call some kind of play that would have let Kaepernick run the ball into the end zone is anyone’s guess. Kaepernick had some trouble passing the ball in the game, he went 16 of 28 for 302 yards and he rushed the ball 7 times for 62 yards.
He has nothing to be embarrassed about, he played a great game. He just needed to find the end zone on that critical drive. We will see Kaeperncik for years to come. The guy is that good.
