Colin Kaepernick must have been ticked after throwing an interception deep in Packers territory during the second quarter of the San Francisco 49ers’ wild card playoff game on Sunday, because he went after Tramon Williams with a vengeance.
The 49ers had a 2nd-and-7 from the Green Bay 29, and Kaepernick tried to loft a ball to Vernon Davis nearby the end zone. Williams made a great play to jump in front of Davis and intercept the pass, and he began returning it. The surprise was that of all people on the field, it was Kaepernick who flew in to make the tackle. And he didn’t make some weak effort, either. He went head-first into Williams to bring down the Packers CB, and he paid the price with the brutal hit.
Most quarterbacks would usually let his teammates handle the tackle. How many other NFL QBs would make a play like that?
