Colin Kaepernick went 14 for 24 for 153 yards and 1 TD while rushing for 130 yards on 11 carries, during Sundays loss to the Seahawks in the NFC Championship. Nothing really jumps off the stats page until you look at the turnovers. Kaepernick turned the ball over 3 times in key situations on Sunday and is shouldering the blame.
“I didn’t play good enough to win. I turned the ball over three times. I cost us this game,” Kaepernick said.
Kaepernick is right that the three turnovers sealed the 49ers’ fate. San Francisco had three possessions in the fourth quarter, and those three possessions ended with a Kaepernick fumble and two Kaepernick interceptions.-ProFootballTalk.com
While Kaep’s turnovers didn’t help the 49ers they probably wouldn’t have even been in the AFC Championship if it wasn’t for him and in the NFL it is true that 11 players lose a game not 1. It is nice to see that type of leadership from a young QB though.
