- With those victories, it sets up for some big-time showdowns in the Sweet Sixteen round of the tournament:
- Colin Kaepernick vs. Arian Foster
- Joe Montana vs. Dan Marino
- Jerry Rice vs. Michael Strahan
All three Niners have a good chance at Advancing to the Elite Eight. It will be interesting to see how voting goes in the Montana vs. Marino matchup. As we all know, Joe gave Marino a little beat-down in the Super Bowl nearly thirty years ago.
Montana and Kaepernick have even tweeted, trying to get the vote out:
