Ahead of their showdown with the Packers on Monday Night Football, the 49ers put a photo gallery together of their franchise’s greatest moments against Green Bay. None of the photos included former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who had some of his best performances against the Packers.
Kaepernick beat the Packers twice in the playoffs, including the greatest rushing performance by a quarterback in NFL history, via Pro Football Talk:
The 49ers published 48 pictures of what they described as “top moments between the 49ers and Packers since 1950,” and zero of those pictures were of Kaepernick. The pictures range from a black-and-white photo of Roland Lakes sacking Bart Starr in 1967 to Bradley Pinion punting during the 49ers’ game against the Packers in 2015. But no Kaepernick.
Were those two great playoff wins simply forgotten? No. There are pictures from those games, but they all focus on other 49ers.
I get it if you don’t want to include photos of Kaepernick kneeling, but it only validates his collusion claim by leaving him out of the franchise’s greatest moments against the Packers. It also makes a big deal out of something that shouldn’t be a big deal.
