Shortly after canceling his scheduled visit with the New York Giants, free-agent quarterback Pat White has planned a meeting with the Washington Redskins, likely his next landing spot, according to CBS Sports.

White was slated to meet with the Giants, his second visit after spending time in San Francisco last week. But after the 49ers traded for Colt McCoy to back up Colin Kaepernick, the need for White quickly dissipated.

The Giants already re-signed Eli Manning's longtime backup David Carr, though it was presumed White could fit the role of read-option/Wildcat quarterback in Kevin Gilbride's offense.

Colin Kaepernick wasn't the 49ers' starting quarterback on opening day, but now he's engineered his team to the biggest stage in professional sports.

Kaepernick was named the team's starter after incumbent Alex Smith was concussed halfway through the season. In his first career start, the second-year signal-caller out of Nevada rejuvenated the Niners' offense, and the former second-round selection played well enough to earn the starting job.

And it's a story that's all too familiar.

Despite the huge worldwide stage, the teams in the Super Bowl have to simply stick to what got them there rather than try to change their whole game plan at the last minute.

For the San Francisco 49ers, relying on a dynamic rushing attack has led them to this point, and that rushing game could lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl win.

San Francisco averaged 155.7 rushing yards per game, which ranked the team fourth in the NFL. This rushing attack kept the 49ers on the field, allowing its top-notch defense to be well-rested whenever it took the field.
