The Road to Super Bowl

When the NFL season started, there were a total of nine Black quarterbacks for the first time in the history of the NFL. As Super Bowl XVLIII draws near, there are only two Black QBs left in the running, San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick and the North Carolina Panthers Cam Newton. As the 49ers prepare to take on the Panthers in the first round of 2014 playoff games on Jan. 12, let’s check out why Kaepernick and Newton are two of the best in the league.  Dominique Zonyéé (@DominiqueZonyee)
