Colin Kaepernick, the young San Francisco 49ers quarterback who guided the team to the Super Bowl and a conference championship game during his first two seasons, is under investigation by Miami police for possible sexual misconduct last week at a hotel, the Miami Herald reported. Also listed on the police incident report are his teammate Quinton Patton, 23, a second-year pro, and Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette, 27. Though no charges have been filed, the report indicates that a woman - who said she had a sexual relationship with Kaepernick in the past - told police on April 3 that she passed out in the hotel about midnight April 1. She woke up at a Miami hospital the next morning, the report says, with no idea how she got there.

Tim Tebow, the third-string quarterback for the New England Patriots, and Colin Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl last season, had something in common Friday: a 0.0 passer rating. The two dual-threat quarterbacks didn't muster much in the aerial game in preseason outings Friday night. You probably never thought you'd hear that ... about Kaepernick. Tebow is another story. He completed only one of seven passes for minus-1 yard. He also had a pass intercepted.

On my drive from 49ers to Raiders training camp last week, I stopped in San Francisco to see John Madden, who typically spends a few days a week at his condominium in the city. He prefers the cool, foggy weather in summer to the relative heat of the East Bay, where he has a home. Madden, the Hall of Fame coach, broadcaster and video game magnate, is particularly interested in watching San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick this season. Madden followed him closely when Kaepernick was at Nevada, if only because his games were on TV so frequently.

SI.com's Peter King had an interesting item in “Monday Morning Quarterback” on Oakland's interest in drafting quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2011, and how San Francisco traded up to grab him with the fourth pick in the second round. “I think about it all the time, believe me," former Raiders coach Hue Jackson told King. “No question in my mind we wanted it to happen, and no question I thought it could happen. We wanted the kid in the worst way.” According to King, the Raiders had Kaepernick as the top-rated quarterback on their board, ahead of the five taken before him: Cam Newton by Carolina, Jake Locker by Tennessee, Blaine Gabbert by Jacksonville, Christian Ponder by Minnesota, and Andy Dalton by Cincinnati.

TURLOCK, Calif. - A gas station in this Central Valley town used to sell souvenir hats that read: "Turlock - Known for Absolutely Nothing. " That was before hometown boy Colin Kaepernick went from being a third-string quarterback to leading the San Francisco 49ers into Sunday's Super Bowl. Now Turlock is swarming with tourists. They are dropping into Christina's Coffeehouse for a Kaep of Joe, eating Kaepernick Dogs (chili, coleslaw, jalapenos and special sauce) at Footers on Main Street and ordering a No. 7 Kaepernick Special at the Dust Bowl - a jalapeno burger served with a red-gold ale. At Lisa's Cookie Jar, they are buying dozens and dozens of red, football jersey-shaped cookies with the quarterback's name in white icing.

Everything is going just as Colin Kaepernick planned. All the way back in fourth grade, he in a school letter that he would like to one day be the quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers. And lo and behold, that's just what happened. In that same letter, Kaepernick also predicted that he would make his coach look like a genius for giving him the job late in the season, set new postseason records for longest rushing touchdown by a quarterback and most rushing yards by a quarterback in a game, and that he would start a social media sensation by kissing his right biceps after touchdowns.

Colin Kaepernick was spectacular in his first-ever NFL start Monday night. The San Francisco backup quarterback, playing while starter Alex Smith recovers from a concussion, threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns during the 49ers' 32-7 victory over the Chicago Bears on national television. Coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about his quarterback situation after the game - and seconds later a quarterback controversy was born. “I usually tend to go with the hot hand, and we've got two quarterbacks with hot hands,” Harbaugh said.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has been fined $7,875 by the NFL for taunting the San Francisco 49ers during the final minute of the NFC championship game on Sunday in Seattle. With 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Sherman deflected a pass in the end zone intended for 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree. Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith intercepted the tipped pass, sealing the Seahawks' 23-17 victory over San Francisco. After the play, Sherman ran after Crabtree, patted his behind and tried to shake his hand, prompting the San Francisco receiver to push the Seahawks cornerback in the face.

SEATTLE - The Seattle Seahawks are heading to their second Super Bowl - and they have their smothering defense to thank. All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman made a huge play Sunday evening to preserve a 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game, setting up a Super Bowl XLVIII showdown with the Denver Broncos on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick and Seattle's Russell Wilson will be facing off for the fourth time in their young careers on Sunday, but this time more than an eyebrow will be on the line. The two quarterbacks will be hoping to propel their teams to the Super Bowl with a victory in the National Football Conference championship. Kaepernick and the 49ers made it there last year, losing to the Baltimore Ravens, 34-31. The second-year starters are among the most exciting young QBs in the NFL and provide an interesting side story to the game with the level of success they've achieved with their dual-threat playing styles.

  CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- In his second season as a starter, Colin Kaepernick improved to 3-0 in road playoff games, but it will take a successful journey to the most hostile environment in the NFL for the 49ers to repeat as NFC champions. The 49ers toppled the host Carolina Panthers, 23-10, Sunday, taking over the game on two Kaepernick touchdowns, one a throw and one a run, sandwiched around halftime. San Francisco advanced to the NFC championship game Sunday in Seattle, where the 49ers have been blown out the last two seasons.

San Francisco's Jim Harbaugh and Carolina's Ron Rivera, teammates with the Chicago Bears in the 1980s, square off with very similar teams. Both have stifling defenses, productive power running games, and mobile, dynamic quarterbacks who can pick up first downs with their feet. Whereas Colin Kaepernick helped bring the 49ers to the brink of a Lombardi Trophy last season, Cam Newton will make his first postseason appearance for the Panthers. Carolina stunned San Francisco in November with a 10-9 victory at Candlestick Park, but the 49ers were without Kaepernick's favorite target, receiver Michael Crabtree, who missed 11 games because of a torn Achilles' tendon.

Rick and Teresa Kaepernick, parents of the 49ers quarterback, were walking into the Georgia Dome to watch their son's team take on the Atlanta Falcons when they noticed something strange.  They took a photo of it and posted it on Twitter.

Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback, had the best game of his career in the team's 34-0 blowout of the Jets, and looked more like how New York Jets fans might have envisioned Tim Tebow would be after their team traded with the Denver Broncos for him. On five carries he rushed for 50 yards and scored on a 7-yard touchdown run from the wildcat in what would be the game-winning score in the second quarter. Kaepernick's only pass attempt of the day was an incompletion.

  GREEN BAY, Wis. - Phil Dawson will turn 39 years old later this month. He's at the tail end of his 15th season. And after spending 14 years in Cleveland with the Browns, the San Francisco 49ers kicker isn't exactly accustomed to the postseason stage. So on Sunday, when his big moment arrived, he made sure to appreciate the opportunity more than fear the pressure. Three seconds remained. A 33-yard field-goal attempt awaited to break a 20-20 tie and beat the Green Bay Packers in the opening round of the playoffs.

Back when he was an assistant coach for the Packers, Steve Mariucci used to combat the cold during games by holding quarterback meetings in the sauna. (An added perk: There was only a sauna only in the home team's locker room.) [Sam is checking whether this is still true, but he may not find out in time for deadline. ac] Both teams could certainly use that dash of comfort Sunday, when the temperature is expected to dip well below zero. Thermometer aside, the 49ers have been torrid lately, finishing the regular season with an NFL-best six-game winning streak.
