SANTA CLARA – With two flicks of his wrist on the 49ers’ first drive Sunday, quarterback Colin Kaepernick reminded his coach of a superhero.
Kaepernick made strong and accurate throws on back-to-back plays on the first drive while on the run. He made a 37-yard pass to Anquan Boldin, then followed it up with a 29-yard touchdown toss to Vernon Davis.
“I mean, in my estimation, there’s only two people that could make those two plays,” Harbaugh said on Monday. “One is Colin Kaepernick and the other has an ‘S’ on his chest.”
Kaepernick completed 16 of 23 passes for 201 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the 49ers’ 28-17 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. His passer rating was a Superman-like 125.5.
“I think the way Colin played yesterday in the ballgame was fabulous,” Harbaugh said.
