Russell Wilson v. Colin Kaepernick

When it comes to rivalries on the West Coast, few surpass the modern day match-up of Russell "The Muscle" Wilson versus Colin Kaepernick of the "49-whiners."

This week in its NFL preview issue, Sports Illustrated touts the best quarterbacks in the NFL as the gunslingers of the NFC - with a heavy emphasis on Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick.

The pair grace one of four regional SI covers reminding us, of another Kaepernick v. Wilson photo from last season.

But that photo needed an update, so in taking a look at the quarterbacks' Instragram accounts, we found out what they've been up to in the offseason.
