Kaepernicking Replaces Tebowing As Colin Kaepernick Leads 49ers To NFC Championship Game

Posted: Updated:

-- Move over, Tim Tebow. Kaepernicking is all the craze now.

In the wake of San Francisco's 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers in Saturday night's NFC divisional playoff, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's touchdown celebration of flexing his right arm and kissing his bicep has taken off on social media.

Several 49ers fans have posted pictures of themselves in the act at home, in bars, on the street, at work or just about any other place they frequent. Some even positioned their toddlers or dogs in the position. Others made online videos.

Kaepernicking had started weeks ago after the quarterback replaced Alex Smith, though the act has increased during San Francisco's run to the NFC title game against Atlanta. Kaepernick has often retweeted other fans' pictures of the act on Twitter.

Tebowmania? That's so last season.

Tebow, a dedicated Christian, had kneeled down in prayer following scores during Denver's improbable run to the playoffs last year. He faded with the New York Jets this season, and so did Tebowing.
