How far will Colin Kaepernick take the 49ers?

Colin Kaepernick San Francisco 49ers Week 3 Preseason 2013Colin Kaepernick and Alex Smith both played well in the Wild Card round, and only one quarterback advanced. It’s not as simple as that, as Smith was so good over the first three quarters that he sent announcer Mike Mayock into giggling fits. Kaepernick rarely does that, because we’ve already been trained to expect the best.

Kaepernick provided his best when the 49ers needed to come back from four points down, then again when the game was tied at 20-all. His passing statistics weren’t great on first glance, since completion percentage is looked at by some as more important than yards per attempt, but the 49ers converted on half their third down chances and went 1-for-1 on fourth down.

Kaepernick also won, sending the 49ers to the NFC Divisional Round with his seventh game-winning drive and his third postseason win in four tries. Kaepernick will be looking for a mega-extension after the season ends, and he got off to a great start.

Here’s my question for you all: how far will Kaepernick take his team this season? 

The 49ers face a tough road — they’ll have to win in Carolina against a team that held Kaepernick’s team to just nine points in the regular season. If they prevail in Charlotte, they’ll probably have to go to Seattle.

Some people feel like Kaepernick, who rushed for 98 yards against Green Bay, is built for the postseason. Others are skeptical that a guy who completed less than 60% of his passes during the regular season can pass with the precision it’ll take to get the Super Bowl against two monster defenses (assuming the Seahawks win on Saturday).

What do you think? Are the 49ers headed back to the “BIG GAME,” or will their season end on Sunday or in two weeks?

For answering the question, you’ll be entered into a contest that’ll give you a 20-PERSON PIZZA + CHAMPAGNE PARTY FROM AMICI’S EAST COAST PIZZERIA. That’s right, more pizza than you’ve ever seen in one place (unless you’ve worked for a pizza place in your lifetime, like I have) and many bottles of delicious bubbly, courtesy of Amici’s.

How far are the 49ers going this year? I know you’ve got opinions you’re dying to share, and instead of telling your significant other (who probably doesn’t care all that much) you can let thousands of football fans know how smart and clairvoyant you are. Sounds like a good deal, no?

Oh, and poor Alex. He really deserved better.

Kaep can take them all the way. Seems like he loves having more and more pressure on him

NinersNation all the way baby. Faithfuls have faith in our QB. We won’t say nothing less then all the way!

What we are seeing now (the playoffs) is a Kap that is less hesitant to take off…The regular season appeared was an extended training camp to get him to learn how to be an effective passer. Now that the post season is here, it’s win however you can.  Kap’s ability to take the lane is critical for victory because we don’t have a checkdown game.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see Kap be the leading rusher once again in CAR.  If Kap can just increase his pocket awareness, he will be impossible to defend for years and years.

Super Bowl. Kap seems to game up for this type of game(s). I think the stick gets one more game!

KAEPERNICK will take the 49ers to the Super Bowl and disneyland. Kap is like a basketball player who will take three-pointers, drive the ball and dunk, and make incredible passes and assists. He offers so much as a quarterback that he gives defenses nightmares with screaming matches in the video room over missed assignments and ahem, missed tackles. Lately with Green Bay, he has been giving them different looks the past 3 games – rushing for 186 yards, then throwing for 417 yards, then in the wild card game, coming up with a balanced attack with both the passing and… Read more »

In a perfect world:
– 49ers get a revenge win on the Jaguars
– New Orleans plays over their heads, beat Seattle at home, Seahawks fans eat it

– 49ers win the (really!) last game in Candlestick, ending the Saints comeback season

– 49ers win the Super Bowl over Denver, putting to rest the rumors about HarBaalke wanting Peyton more than Kaepernick

What’s actually going to happen:
– 49ers over Jags, then lose to the Seahawks in Seattle

As long as the team stays healthy, Kap can take us to the promise land. And harbaugh doesn’t die of an aneurism on the sideline.

BobbySabnani The lack of a check down game could be their undoing because that’s what CK really needs at times since he has trouble reading progressions.  That speaks to my frustration with the coaching and their problem coming up with schemes to fit the players and the situation rather than trying to fit players into their schemes…

Kap took us to the SuperBowl last year and he can do it again this year. With Crabtree back and our Defense playing out of their minds he will take us all the way to Lombardi #6 !

Oops.  You’re right of course.  But really it’s just about the pizza anyway.  smile

Kaepernick has already proven he CAN take this team to a Super Bowl. The defense is playing better this year, so we have as good a shot as any of the remaining teams. But it’s foolhardy to think that Kaep will be able to run against Carolina or Seattle (assuming we get a game against them) like he did against Green Bay. So the question is: is Kaep’s arm accurate enough to win a game on its own? I think the answer is yes, with this caveat: like any quarterback, Kaep becomes less accurate and less effective when under pressure.… Read more »

Kap can take us to the Super Bowl. It will be tough but the Niners can beat anyone remaining. 

Imagine this: Saints beat Seahawks. Indy makes it to the SB. Niners win it all, getting redemption on every team that beat them during the regular season. That would be sweet.

With this team around him, he could take them to a SB victory but everyone on the team will have to play up to their capabilities.

Kaepernick is UNDEFEATED with Boldin, Crabtree, and Davis on the field.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it. His only losses were when he had ONE legit receiving option.  And as awesome as Boldin is, he’s old, and certainly not fast.  When you have one legit recieving option, he’s pulling double and triple coverage, and than they sell out against the run. People should be talking about how AMAZING his stats are considering his famine of options.  Now that we have Boldin, Davis, Crabtree, and even Patton as legit options, AND the running game, look the fuck out. #6… Read more »

With a healthy receiving core (Boldin has been a tremendous addition) – I do not see how this offense can be stopped When we played Seattle in Seattle…All they had to do was double Boldin and there were issues, but now we have Crabtree back and he is a big force on the team. Having receivers worth guarding will certainly open up the run game and holes for Kap to run through I was a bit skeptical at first being that I always find a way to believe in my team…and Harbaugh got me on Alex…so of course I needed… Read more »

With that…i think they take it all the way. If they can get passed Seattle (if both of us win…) then our defense along with our power offense can win the SB.

Defense wins championships as long as you have an offense that can put up points
