San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick set an NFL record for yards rushing by a QB in a playoff game, gaining 181 against Green Bay on Jan. 12.

But don't forget - the kid can throw, too.

Actually, he really zips the ball, showing off a right shoulder honed in part by his days as a baseball pitcher who threw 90 mph and was drafted by the Chicago Cubs.

Maybe throws a football a little bit too hard on occasion.

``I talk to him about a little less mustard all the time. (There's) a lot of velocity on the ball,'' 49ers tight end Vernon Davis said. ``Colin is always in the weight room. If you want to find Colin, go to the weight room.''
