Colin Kaepernick vs. Russell Wilson: Which QB Is the Best in the West?
John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

The NFC West, once considered a joke among the NFC, is now the new 'black and blue' division. Scratch that, this could be even bigger than the old classic 'black and blue' division that once dominated the headlines. 

We all know about the punishing defenses within this division, and even the strong rushing attacks, but what about the quarterbacks? Oh, the days of Kyle Boller and Troy Smith still linger in my mind, but man, what a transformation this division has undertaken in the quarterback department. 

Now, Sam Bradford and Carson Palmer don't strike fear in anyone's heart, but at least both quarterbacks are respected players with some history of success, no matter the length. But forget the Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams, for now, at least. 

Instead, we should focus on two up-and-coming stars in Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson, and their respective teams.

The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks both have young quarterbacks and young rosters, which should make this rivalry one of the best in football for at least the next several years.

We're talking about a rivalry that could match or even exceed the Bradshaw-Staubach rivalry. Who knows, we may even see Kaepernick-Wilson exceed the Brady-Manning rivalry. 

The 2013 season can't come soon enough. Here is a breakdown comparison of Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson. Who's the best in the West?
