“Going into the game, I thought it was all hype,” Suggs told Jim Rome. “He’s only had nine starts and then I’m going down the line at the teams he’s playing and I’m like ‘OK, alright, he’s got some good stats, but we will see.’”
But after seeing Kaepernick pass for 302 yards and run for 62 yards against the Ravens in the Super Bowl, Suggs is a believer.
“When you go in there and you’re playing a guy like that, I hate quarterbacks, but that kid is the truth and I have the upmost respect for him,” Suggs said. “I don’t think he needs to hold his head down at all because he’s going to play in a few [Super Bowls].”
Everyone who watched the Super Bowl had to come away impressed with Kaepernick. Even a Raven who hates quarterbacks.
