Bill Belichick’s career changed when he decided to go with Tom Brady over Drew Bledsoe, so he can understands the process Jim Harbaugh is going through with his quarterback conundrum.
As their teams prepare to meet Sunday night, Belichick knows exactly what he has in his signal caller; Harbaugh is still trying to figure out what’s the right type of offense for Kaepernick, it’s still a work in progress.
However, Belichick knows regardless of whom is out there, the Patriots will be prepared for both.
"Coach Harbaugh is an outstanding coach and his record and performance speak for itself," Belichick said via Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.
"I'm sure whatever decision he makes is what he thinks is best for the football team.”
"Certainly he has the experience and track record to go with it. He played the position. He knows the position as much as anybody does. I'm sure he's doing what's best for his team. That's what any coach would do.”
"The 49ers have won a lot of games with whichever quarterback they've had in there," Belichick added. "They're a solid football team. We have to defend whoever is in there. They're good with either one of them."
