The revered legacies of San Francisco quarterbacking greats Joe Montana and Steve Young had to stand down Monday night, as benchwarmer Colin Kaepernick turned in a better first game as a starter than either of the Hall of Famers. Forced into service by an injury to starter Alex Smith, Kaepernick helped bury the Bears, who were without injured QB Jay Cutler, by completing more passes (16 of 23) and throwing for more yards (243) and more touchdowns (2) than either Montana or Young did in their debuts as San Francisco starters.
