The Sean Taylor Memorial Meast for Divisional Playoff Weekend is Colin Kaepernick, who not only won his first-career playoff start and rushed for 181 yards, a single-game record for a quarterback, but also scored four touchdowns, two rushing, two passing. It being the playoffs, the stakes were already high, but the circumstances of the season made it even higher. Had Kaepernick lost, the media would have savaged both he and coach Jim Harbaugh for the decision to keep Kaep as the full-time starting quarterback after Alex Smith returned from injury. His performance was measty enough that we’re willing to overlook Colin’s stupid facial hair and the fact that he used to wear a Brett Favre jersey as a kid.

The Jeff George Memorial Least for Divisional Playoff Weekend is Rahim Moore. Some folks are already calling Moore’s gaffe the worst in the history of the Broncos. I can’t speak to that, but it was certainly the biggest derp of the weekend. Credit to Moore for taking full responsibility for the mistake. That said, integrity doesn’t negate leastiness and we have Moore to blame for inflicting Ray Lewis’ farewell danceathon on us for at least another week.
