San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh predicts a huge season for quarterback Colin Kaepernick,

Kaepernick has already quarterbacked the 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance.

Now, Harbaugh anticipates even more from Kaepernick.

"I really expect that real breakout year for Colin," Harbaugh said. "He just has the look and feel that he's going to break out, more so than he already has. I'm really excited about everything about his game right now.

Athletically, he looks bionic. We all remember the 'Six Million-Dollar Man.' That's what he looks like to me. He's very gifted and he always has been."

The 2011 second-round draft pick from Nevada, Kaepernick has ledt the 49ers to consecutive NFC championship games.

Kaepernick passes for 3,197 yards and 21 touchdowns last season, rushing for 524 yards and four touchdowns.

"I feel like we have a lot of firepower in our corner," Harbaugh said. "I feel like we have a lot of ammunition in our camp. I was just thinking about it the other day, 'It doesn't get better than this.'"

What about a new deal for Kaepernick?

"I'm letting my agents handle all of that," Kaepernick said "I'm out here trying to get better with my teammates. I'm playing football regardless."
