It's no secret that good quarterbacks are often able to anticipate how a play might turn out, but this might be taking it a bit too far.

When he was in the fourth grade, Colin Kaepernick wrote a letter in which he expressed his desire to play professional football for the 49ers. The letter was broadcast to the millions watching NBC as the San Francisco QB led his team to a 41-34 win over the Patriots Sunday night.

"I hope I go to a good college in football[.] Then go to the pros and play on the Niners or the Packers even if they aren't good in seven years," the clairvoyant Kaepernick wrote.

Though the letter was unearthed back in 2010 by Kaepernick's hometown newspaper, the Turlock Journal, it's only now gaining the attention of media and fans alike.

He may seem like a soothsayer now, but things could have turned out quite differently for Kaepernick, who dodged a potential baseball career when he chose to continue breaking football records at Nevada despite being drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 2009.
