It depends on who the other team is.
I really like Kaepernick in college, so I'd probably root for him to do well. That being said there are generally a couple teams in the AFC I like more than the 49ers, so we'll see.
I don't think we need to worry about people saying running QBs don't win SBs. The QB position has been a passing position for years, pure runners generally don't have the mechanics, accuracy, etc., that pocket passers do. In the past you pretty much had to pick either a pocket passer with minimal scrambling speed, or a running QB with problems in his passing.
Now we've got a bunch of dual threat guys in the league and coming into the league. Griffin, Kaepernick, Newton, and Wilson are all dual threat. A few other guys could probably qualify over the next few years, Johnny Manziel had over 1000 rushing yards to go with his 3to1 TD/INT passing ratio. Colin Klein, Logan Thomas, and Tajh Boyd are all guys who could qualify as dual threat, with Thomas being an early favorite for top QB next year.
Sooner or later some QB who has a large number of rushes but also great passing technique is going to win a SB, and people will finally be quiet about the whole thing. The whole "running QBs don't win SBs" thing is based purely around the notion that running QBs are flawed passers, which is no longer true.
Aaron Rodgers and Big Ben are "running QBs" too.

- Rak has huge game in most recent trip, last year (2021 season)
- Drafted Rak in '09.
Rak would be 35 or 36 at the time. That would be awesome if he had that kind of game at that age.
Heck, it'd be awesome to have that kind of game at any age.
Did you see AaronRodgers TD sprint vs the Lions the other day? He won a Super Bowl
