Last week, we had another bestie winner, maybe the easiest of the extended run, as the Ravens bounced into Super Sunday with a 28-13 victory as a 7 1/2-point underdog.

COLIN KAEPERNICK is trending on several fronts. Even the Guv is weighing in. Ed Rendell, the football-crazy politico who writes a column for the Daily News' weekend edition, told Rich Zeoli on Talk Radio 1210 that the Eagles should consider trading for Kaepernick. "One thing is clear, Sam Bradford is not, in my judgment, the quarterback of the future for the Eagles," Rendell said. "What I would like to see us get at the end of the year, I'm told that San Francisco is going to be looking to trade Kaepernick, and I think, in Chip Kelly's system, Kaepernick could be the perfect quarterback because he can run. " The 49ers' quarterback reportedly has been labeled a loner for constantly wearing his headphones in the locker room.

SAN FRANCISCO - Colin Kaepernick ran for a quarterback playoff record 181 yards and two touchdowns and threw two scoring passes to Michael Crabtree in leading the San Francisco 49ers back to the NFC championship game with a 45-31 victory against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night. Playoff first-timer Kaepernick outshined reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, who never got in sync for the Packers (12-6) in finishing 26 of 39 for 257 yards with two touchdowns. Kaepernick ran for scores of 20 and 56 yards on the way to topping the rushing mark of 119 yards set by Michael Vick in 2005 against St. Louis.

NEW ORLEANS - Colin Kaepernick, like his Super Bowl-playing predecessors at quarterback, represents the future of the NFL. Like Joe Montana and the West Coast offense and Steve Young and his mobility, Kaepernick is a victory away from becoming the first quarterback to win in a way many thought once impossible. Kaepernick is a running quarterback. But he's also a passing quarterback. Young was both, but he was more of a scrambler than a runner. Kaepernick, on the other hand, can both run and pass within the 49ers offense and with equal skill.

SAN FRANCISCO - Colin Kaepernick stood in a cramped corner of the 49ers' locker room smiling and chatting with Alex Smith late Saturday night when a stranger interrupted the two quarterbacks. "Wow, great game," said former franchise quarterback John Brodie, shaking Kaepernick's hand and patting him on the back. "Nice to meet you. " After a record-setting playoff debut that sent San Francisco to the NFC championship game for the second straight season, Kaepernick needs no more introductions.

Hours after Chip Kelly assured reporters that Colin Kaepernick is excited to play for the 49ers this year, Kaepernick's agents requested a trade. The NFL Network's Rand Getlin reported that Kaepernick's agents, Scott Smith and Jason Bernstein, met with team officials in Indianapolis Thursday afternoon. Kaepernick was benched after eight games in 2015. Disparaging rumors leaked about how he conducted himself in the locker room preceding the move. Kaepernick also has had three surgeries since November - on his shoulder, knee, and thumb - all of which were performed by specialists in Vail, Colo., not by team doctors.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Colin Kaepernick threw four touchdown passes in San Francisco's 41-34 win Sunday night over the turnover-prone New England Patriots. Six days after the Patriots' 42-14 win over the Houston Texans, who had the NFL's best record, they were on the other end in another game against one of the league's top teams. Kaepernick, making his fifth start after replacing Alex Smith as San Francisco's starting quarterback, threw scoring passes of 24 yards to Randy Moss, 34 yards to Delanie Walker, and to Michael Crabtree of 27 yards and 38 yards in the fourth quarter to break a 31-all tie.

Joe Flacco is staying in Baltimore. The Super Bowl MVP quarterback agreed Friday to a new contact with the Ravens, two people with knowledge of the deal told the Associated Press. Terms were not immediately available, but Flacco, a former star quarterback at South Jersey's Audubon High School, was expected to get a long-term contract close to the $20 million average salary Drew Brees earns with New Orleans. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not officially been announced.

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was fined $30,000 by the NFL on Wednesday, but he said he didn't kick Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on purpose. That's why Suh insisted he doesn't need to apologize to Schaub. Suh spoke to reporters for the first time since his left cleat connected with Schaub's groin area in Detroit's loss to Houston last Thursday.   Adderall use in NFL More NFL players are testing positive for amphetamines, a class of substances that includes the ADHD drug Adderall.

The Philadelphia Eagles team that Chip Kelly took over three years ago was coming off a 4-12 season, but it really wasn't as bad as all that. The San Francisco 49ers team that just hired Kelly on the rebound was 5-11 this past season, and it might not even be that good. When you look at the two situations, it's fair to wonder if Kelly benefitted from good timing with the Eagles and will suffer the other side of that coin with the 49ers. That would be a real shame, wouldn't it? The 2012 Eagles were a dispirited bunch that quit on Andy Reid, but the offense was still ranked 15th in the league.

Les Bowen: No champion, Chip It's an interesting question, because Chip Kelly might have sold himself to the 49ers as the guy whose system can turn Colin Kaepernick around, and maybe it can. If you get the quarterbacking part right, the rest usually follows. However, the post-Jim Harbaugh 49ers are widely considered one of the NFL's most dysfunctional franchises. Their roster is in tatters. Supposedly, Kelly just wants to coach now and won't be involved in personnel decisions (or at least, that's what he told the York family to get in the door)

Chip Kelly found a new job on the same day that the Eagles found Kelly's replacement. The San Francisco 49ers hired Kelly as their head coach on Thursday, giving Kelly a safe landing spot just hours before news broke that the Eagles will hire Doug Pederson. Kelly interviewed for the job last week and reportedly beat out Mike Shanahan for the position. The 49ers were the only team believed to interview Kelly. In three seasons with the Eagles, Kelly went 26-21. He won the NFC East in 2013 and had 10-win seasons in his first two years before slipping to 6-9 in 2015 after he was granted full control of the roster.

The NFL just became a more interesting place, and we have the San Francisco 49ers to thank for it. The league without Chip Kelly in 2016 would have been a bore. Now, we get to find out if his work with the Eagles was incomplete because he was stuck with statues at quarterback or if he was a socially dysfunctional know-it-all unable to adapt to the NFL game and its players. The continuation of the Kelly experiment would have been better performed in Tennessee - the home of Chip's beloved Marcus Mariota - but the 49ers are a solid second choice.

Chip Kelly interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, according to multiple reports. It was Kelly's first known interview since the Eagles fired him last week. The 49ers fired Jim Tomsula on Sunday after a 5-11 season. They have 12 draft picks this year to go along with potentially $40 million in cap space. There is uncertainty at quarterback, where Colin Kaepernick was benched last season. If healthy and if the 49ers decide to keep him, Kaepernick could be the type of dynamic dual-threat quarterback that Kelly only briefly had in his offense in Philadelphia with Michael Vick.

EAGLES FANS all have opinions on who should be the starting quarterback next season. There's the "anybody but Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez" camp. Others are praying for Tim Tebow. Still others are hoping the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick ends up in midnight green. No one has mentioned Matt Hasselbeck. OK, so he's not the answer. But, he's doing some pretty impressive things in Indianapolis. On Sunday, the 40-year-old, 17-year veteran, threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Colts to a 25-12 win the Bucs.

Every generation, it seems, laments what is to become of the one that follows, and sometimes it does so with justification. For proof, we offer the state of NFL quarterbacks. The best ones, with a few exceptions, are all in their 30s. There is, in fact, an epidemic of bad among the 20-somethings, with the Eagles' Sam Bradford, 27, at the very bottom, according to ESPN's system for ranking signal-callers. Instead of simply calculating passing numbers, which is how a standard rating is figured, ESPN's quarterback ratings take a more detailed look at game situations.

Know any good young quarterbacks who can't run? The NFL could use a few. Deep into this 2014 season, two facts about the league's quarterbacks can't be ignored. First, and most problematic for a league whose signal-callers are its most prominent stars: The best of them are graying faster than a mid-January afternoon. Peyton Manning is 38. Tom Brady is 37. Drew Brees is 35. That's a lot of passing yards, record-book entries, and merchandising dollars headed for the exit. Not too far behind in total birthdays are Phillip Rivers (32)
