Stopping Colin Kaepernick.

Go ahead and try.

The Green Bay Packers didn’t come close to stopping him in what became an NFC divisional round rout.

In the NFC Championship game, the Atlanta Falcons were merely a speed bump.

So, now it’s the Baltimore Ravens turn and the slogging will be tough for the aging Ravens defence to put the brakes on the speedy Kaepernick and the San Francisco read-option portion of their ‘pistol offence’ that is simply terrorizing defensive coordinators.

The read-option is simplistic in nature but when you have a quarterback with the skill set of the Niners' K-man it becomes an absolute nightmare for opposing defences.
