Stop me if you've heard the story before. Passed over second string QB gets a chance because of injury to an accomplished, stable seasoned veteran. Second year coach stakes his job and reputation on leaving the second stringer in there when the starter recovers. Team goes on to win the Super Bowl, QB becomes the greatest of all time and, in some senses, redefines the position. We've had a lot of suitors for the throne of the next great franchise QB. Maybe it will be Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson. Maybe Cam Newton will come around. My money is on Kaepernick. Some of the stuff he did on Saturday in his first playoff game defies explanation. The game slows down for him. He sees the field in a way others don't. I hope things don't come full circle. I don't want to believe in there being some sort of cosmic script or anything like that. But I think it would take a near perfect game plan for the Patriots to beat the 49ers on a neutral field without Gronk. And I just can't shake the feeling that this is all playing out to situation where Kaepernick is going to have the ball in his hands in the freaking Louisiana Super Dome in a tie game with a minute or so left. If that's the script, it would only make sense that the New England Patriots would be on the other side of the ball. Can't happen that way, can it? ***** doesn't work like that in the NFL, does it? But, all I can say is, Go Falcons!
