San Francisco 49ers
St. Louis Rams
New Orleans Saints
Jim Harbaugh has watched each of his two quarterbacks lead the San Francisco 49ers to big wins in hostile, road environments - Alex Smith in the season opener at Green Bay's Lambeau Field back in September among others, and Colin Kaepernick on Sunday at the New Orleans Superdome.
Which one gets the ball on Sunday when the 49ers travel to St. Louis? Harbaugh is still mum on that, though he did say Monday he will formally announce his starting quarterback by mid-week so the players don't have to face constant questions about what they know about the situation.
Kaepernick said he was told late Saturday in a team meeting ahead of Sunday's start against the Saints.
Then, on Monday, Harbaugh offered this for thought: Yes, he's keeping everybody guessing again. Sort of.
''Alex Smith is our starting quarterback. He has not done anything to lose that job,'' Harbaugh said. ''In fact, he's playing at a very high level. Also, Colin Kaepernick, you...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jim Harbaugh announced today that Colin Kaepernick will start this week against the St Louis Rams. Harbaugh said that Colin, I believe has the hot hand and we’ll go with Colin. Of course he finished that sentence with, ‘and we’ll go with Alex. Both our guys.’
This really shouldn’t come as a surprise, the offense under Kaepernick just seems much more explosive. Regardless...
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has not yet named a starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams, but he said on Monday that he "probably" would name his starter on Wednesday. Harbaugh also has some injuries to consider - specifically to wide receiver Kyle Williams (knee) and running back Kendall Hunter (ankle) - but the focus remains...
Jim Harbaugh already gambled in going with Colin Kaepernick over Alex Smith on Sunday. He now has to decide whether to let his winnings ride, although it might not be long before the 49ers head coach realizes the best course of action would have been to avoid the table completely.
Kaepernick has shown in his two starts that he has the potential to be an electric player in the NFL...
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Colin Kaepernick will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at St. Louis.
Coach Jim Harbaugh made the announcement Wednesday that Kaepernick would go over Alex Smith after the second-year pro led the NFC West-leading Niners (8-2-1) to victories in the past two games, his first two NFL starts.
He says, "Colin we believe has the...
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, sidelined since Nov. 11 with a concussion, was cleared to play today against the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome, but Colin Kaepernick is the starter. It will be the second start for Kaepernick, the second-year player out of Nevada, who helped demolish the Chicago Bears Monday night, 32-7. Smith is the only other active quarterback...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (via Evan Silva), there are people around the NFL that believe the San Francisco 49ers will stick with Colin Kaepernick as their starting quarterback and not go back to Alex Smith.
Kaepernick was on a conference call yesterday with the St. Louis media. That could be a sign that he’ll be starting this week.
I really believe Kaepernick is more...

It's official. The 49ers will go with Colin Kaepernick at quarterback Sunday against the Saints. SOURCE: Albert Breer, NFL NetworkFantasy Spin:Kaepernick has an excellent matchup this week against the Saints less than a week after shredding the vaunted Bears on Monday night.
With Colin Kaepernick again effectively leading the offense and a defense that got downright offensive on its own, the 49ers were simply too much for a hot New Orleans team on Sunday afternoon, taking control after halftime on the way to a convincing 31-21 victory over the Saints at the Superdome.
In the NFL it’s often said that success is contagious. Once a franchise taps into a winning formula, it’s used until the well runs dry. This is the case for the San Francisco 49ers and head coach Jim Harbaugh in 2012.
As everyone knows quarterback Alex Smith has seemingly been replaced as the Niners starting signal caller by the more elusive Colin Kaepernick. In doing so...
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to commit to either Colin Kaepernick or Alex Smith as the team's starting quarterback. Tight end Vernon Davis thinks Alex Smith should be the one under center.
"It's difficult, but I think Alex is still the man," Davis said after Kaepernick led the 49ers to a 31-21 victory over the New Orleans Saints. "In my...
Jim Harbaugh has found himself in the best, but possibly also the worst, situation for his team.
I mean, what coach doesn’t want the choice between two talented and more than capable quarterbacks? Nothing is worse than lacking a capable quarterback. So, having two who are must be a fantastic scenario. Only, some serious complications could rise from the fallen’s ashes.
