It sounds like no big deal for us. But it's a pretty dramatic change for any club. If there were an injury, it's ok. Everybody will understand, everybody will buy in. But for something like this, where Alex Smith is ready to play... who knows.
Something as small as an incomplete pass could snowball into a situation that will unravel the whole locker room. Imagine Kaepernick tries to correct Vernon Davis on a route. Vernon barks back that Colin should learn the play-book before he tries to correct him..... & it goes on & on & on... & they are one & done in the play-offs, if they make it.
Of course, he could be that spark that gets them all the way to the Super Bowl as well.. but I didn't think they were needing a spark.
