Descriptions such as "improbable" and "impossible" do not exist during the NFL Post Season. This is especially true in the case of the San Francisco 49ers, where you have an untested freshman quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, who originally was just the backup for Alex Smith, the franchise quarterback. Then you have wide receiver Michael Crabtree, also of the 49ers, who made promising strides in high school and college, only to be hampered by injuries and less-than-stellar performance in his professional career thus far. Yet, in the most unlikely of circumstances, both men were in-sync on Saturday night with Crabtree catching 9 passes from Kaepernick, made 2 touchdowns all the while wearing his new Air Jordan XX8-inspired Cleats in 49ers colorway. Made to the exact features of the AJXX8 down to the Nike Lunarlon midsole, Jordan Brand only added a few alterations including a stiffer silhouette, tougher upper, and studded outsoles. With the Green Bay Packers routed, Crabtree and the San Francisco 49ers are looking forward to their first NFC Conference Championships title since 1994.
