Why did Kap stop running. This caused the loss more than anything else

No, what caused the loss was a bad decision to throw that first INT to Boldin and then on the final INT a great play by Sherman to get a hand on that ball, which was on the money for a game winning TD.

Execution was the big difference.  On the INT intended for Boldin, he underthrew it a little bit.  Later in the game, on the last drive, they ran the exact same route, the Seahawks undercut it the exact same way, but Kaepernick sailed the throw a little higher and it was a perfectly executed clutch play.

 

If Sherman doesn't get his arm around to knock the ball up... Crabtree probably catches the pass and the 49ers are going to the Superbowl again.  Carroll is being questioned for not taking the easy 3 earlier, and Harbaugh's leadership is being heralded all day today.  Instead... Carroll's "college enthusiasm" is the talk, and Kaepernick is the guy whose turnovers might have cost them the game.

 

Execution by the players on the field is the biggest difference between the two scenarios...
