Thanks Hazz. The Pats and Niners are good enough to be in the big game next year for sure. It's such a competitive league that it's hard to predict though! In many ways, it beats soccer because most European leagues are not competitive and you can always predict 1-2 teams to win (England - cheating Mancs or Moneybags Man City; Germany - Bayern Munich; Spain - Real or Barca) but that just doesn't happen in the NFL where several teams have a genuine shot of winning.
Kaepernick is a good QB, lots to learn when it comes to reading plays (this was only his 10th NFL start to be fair) but uber-talented. Pats have the incomparable Tom Brady so anything's possible!
