SANTA CLARA — During Monday's press conference, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh wanted to talk more about Colin Kaepernick's passes than his record-setting 181 rushing yards in Saturday's night's playoff win over the Green Bay Packers.

"There were several throws that were piercing, where he powered the ball through the defense," Harbaugh said.

Randy Moss, Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree were on the receiving end of such throws, as was Harbaugh in pregame.

Harbaugh noted that he has to wear gloves to catch Kaepernick's passes "and I still drop a few. The ball gets on you real fast."
