Kaepernick Impersonates Newton, 49ers Win


After the 49ers beat the Panthers, we learned that LeBron James is now pulling for his friend Donte Whitner to win a Super Bowl.

We also learned that everyone on social media had a comment about Colin Kaepernick and his impersonation of Cam Newton. It was certainly a celebration to remember and in the age of GIFs, tweets and retweets, Kaepernick's end zone moment was immortalized on social media and web sites.

So in that spirt, we searched Twitter for the best posts that came from San Francisco's 23-10 playoff win.

Boldin, Gore, Kaep, SF D made lots of big plays. Cam and his D didn't make nearly enough. Niners just too big-game tough for Panthers. — Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) January 12, 2014

What a final 4: Brady vs Manning. Maybe their last time with SB at stake. Niners vs Seahawks for a 3rd time. Let's get physical. Can't wait! — John McClain (@McClainonNFL) January 13, 2014
