NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Former Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick got tripped up and tossed down, then still nearly led the greatest Super Bowl comeback in just his 10th career NFL start.

   Rarely rattled on an impressive path to the Super Bowl, San Francisco's second-year quarterback finally showed some inexperience on football's big stage. Not to mention some guts.

   After a remarkable postseason run -- with those speedy legs-- by the tattooed play-caller, the Baltimore Ravens exposed plenty of flaws in handing Kaepernick and Co. a 34-31 loss Sunday despite San Francisco's second-half rally. 

   No team has come from more than 10 points down to win a Super Bowl, and Kaepernick had a chance to make it happen less than three months after becoming San Francisco's starter.

Kaepernick threw for 302 yards and a touchdown, and also rushed for 62 yards and a score in the loss.

Reno should be proud of Kap Not many freshman QB's could have taken a team in the last nine season games to the Super Bowl and do as good a job that he did. He has a long good future ahead
