Colin Kaepernick filled in for an injured Alex Smith and the rest is history. He led the San Francisco 49ers all the way to the Super Bowl, which they eventually lost to the Baltimore Ravens, and coach Jim Harbaugh never looked back at Alex Smith holding that clip board.

The 49ers were originally inclined to keep Smith on their roster but eventually traded him to the Kansas City Chiefs and committing to Colin Kaepernick in the process.

Colin Kaepernick was talking to Erik Kuselias on Pro Football Talk about First Lady Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. But eventually the focus turned to the news story of the week.

“Well there’s really no response right now,” Kaepernick said.  “At this point nothing can be done until March 12th so whether he’s with us or not he’s gonna be a great quarterback but ultimately what we’re here today for is the ‘Let’s Move’ campaign.”

Valiant effort to try and dodge the question. He kept it focused on the reason for the interview while simultaneously praising Alex Smith. Very classy and poised like an NFL veteran, but of course they’re going to try again.

“Well once again there’s nothing to be said about it because no actions can be taken so I mean right now the biggest deal is that we’re here for the ‘Let’s Move’ campaign,” Kaepernick said.

Kuselias asked a third time.

“I mean once again there’s no response, nothing can be done at this point so it’s as if nothing has happened,” Kaepernick said.
