Alex has been playing well. The 49ers are exactly where they are supposed to be. They are on track to get to the Super Bowl.
Throw Kaepernick in there's no telling how that will alter their course. For the better..... maybe. Throwing in an extra monkey wrench.... most likely.
After the season, I'd go Kaepernick all the way. Even if they win the Super Bowl (which they won't, because we will) if Kaepernick is "Harbaugh's guy"
Agree with this.
I think Kaepernick is a better QB, gives them more flexibility and he can change a game. My issue is that no one has really game planned for him yet. Once that happens and he gets into some hostile playoff games, how is he going to react?Your putting your SB talented team on the line with a rookie right now?Alex Smith isn't special but he has been in big games and was 2 muffed punt returns away from a SB.
