The 49ers lost the Super Bowl 34-31 on Sunday. Here is the grade for Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick: B. He erased 20 points of a 22-point deficit almost singlehandedly in the second half. He threw a touchdown and ran for a touchdown – a 15-yard TD run, one of the best QB TD runs ever in a Super Bowl, Kaepernick dropping back and exploding around the left side, scoring in an instant. He accounted for 364 of the 49ers’ 468 total net yards.
But he threw an interception, he scored in just two of his six red zone trips, and he converted just two of nine third downs. Those are losing statistics.
