Colin Kaepernick emerged as an explosive NFL quarterback.

The San Francisco 49ers lost to the Baltimore Ravens 34-31 in Super Bowl XLVII. Now that the confetti has been swept away, it's time to look at ways the 49ers can improve for the 2013 season.

The best collection of talent does not always win, as the 49ers found out in New Orleans. Discipline and execution play a big role, as do mistakes and big plays.
