Colin Kaepernick For Superbowl MVP

49ers vs Ravens Super Bowl

Colin Kaepernick’s signature celebration.

This sunday a 25 year old Colin Kaepernick will take the field as the starting quarterback in the Super Bowl game. He joins the likes of Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Kurt Warner as second year quarterbacks to make the Super Bowl. All three of these quarterbacks won in there first trip to the big game. Maybe its a perceived lack of pressure or maybe its just beginner’s luck but it seems that young QB’s do not suffer a Super Bowl learning curve. Each of these QBs has their own story- from Brady stepping in for an injured Drew Bledsoe to Kurt Warner making his way from the Arena Football League to captain of the greatest show on turf or Ben Roethlisberger dropping in the draft and landing on a Super Bowl contending team. These stories were told in full but Kaepernick story seems to be lost in the mess of other Super Bowl stories like the tale of two Harbaughs, Ray Lewis’ final ride, Randy Moss as the greatest receiver ever, or Alex Smith watching from the side line.

It is my opinion that the San Francisco 49ers’ will win the Super Bowl and Colin Kaepernick will be named Super Bowl MVP; so, I wanted to take a minute to look at all the stars that had to align to put Colin Kaepernick in this unlikely situation. (more…)

Top Rookie Quarterbacks to Make a Fantasy Impact in 2011

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Cam Newton looks to make an immediate fantasy football impact in 2011

With so many teams searching for a Quarterback, the 2011 NFL Draft featured 4 Quarterbacks selected in the top 12.  Typically, it takes QB’s at least a couple of years to adjust to the speed of play and the complexity of the playbook.  However, the top 3 in these rankings will likely start the season as the starting QB and they will have fantasy football relevance due to the quality surroundings around them.  If the matchup is right, these QB’s could help win some fantasy football games in 2011.

1)  Cam Newton | Carolina Panthers

It typically takes QB’s a couple of years to get used to the speed of the NFL and I believe this will be the case with Newton especially since he came from a very simple offensive system at Auburn.   (more…)
