It’s Fitting for 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick to Face the Seahawks in Likely Finale
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick might be playing his final game for the San Francisco 49ers against the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday. And its fitting for the signal-caller to go up against his long-time nemesis.
San Francisco 49ers fans need not be reminded of quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his fade-route pass attempt to wide receiver Michael Crabtree in the waning minutes of the 2014 NFC Championship game.
And yet that moment — the tipped ball by Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and subsequent interception — stands as the lasting image of Kap versus his NFC West rivals.
All combined, Kaepernick has had almost no success against Seattle over his career.
Fast forward to Week 17 of the 2016 season.
The Niners host the Seahawks in a seemingly meaningless game for one team and a contest with playoff implications on the line for the other.
And the game might be Kap’s last in a 49ers uniform as well.
Who knows what Kaepernick’s future might be next season. He could opt out of his current contract and test the free-agent market. And it’s just as likely the 49ers part ways with him too.
Regardless, one should expect plenty of changes between both parties after this weekend.
Colin Kaepernick Numbers vs. Seahawks
That playoff bout in Seattle resulted in yet another heartbreaking postseason defeat for 49ers fans.
Kaepernick threw for a mere 153 yards with one touchdown against two interceptions. And one might argue he’s never been the same quarterback since.
