Re: Alex Smith vs. Colin Kaepernick
The problem is: they were in a serious win now position with a guy that has been in that situation before and you know what he will give you.
Kaepernick seems to be the better QB - but he is also a wildcard. On one night he will be fantastic, on the next he will struggle. He is basically a rookie out there.
I guess the move was inevitable - but it came at a pretty bad time. Finish the season with Smith, then let them battle it out next preseason and do the switch there - not in the middle of the season you want to win a superbowl in while your veteran QB is having his best year yet.
