See Gary, real coaches aren't scared to shake things up because it's what's best for the T-E-A-M.
At the same time:
- that team doesn't rely on their QB too much to win games
- Kaepernick was drafted to eventually become the starter
- if Smith doesn't get a concussion, people wouldn't even know who the 49ers backup QB is
