The San Francisco 49ers had another quality start from Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers beat the Saints and now Jim Harbaugh is left with a tough decision to make. What do you do with Alex Smith? It is an easy choice right now. The way the Colin Kaepernick is playing you leave in the game. The kid has shown he can win and the way the 49ers are winning why make a change? Alex Smith has done a good job for the 49ers but the new guy has shown he is a tough competitor and he is ready to lead the 49ers to the play-offs. If he has a bad game which I don’t see happening, then make the switch back to Smith. For the time being you leave things the way they are right now. Kaepernick hasn’t given Harbaugh a reason to go back to Smith, Harbaugh drafted this kid Kaepernick as the future of the 49ers and that future is now. The 49ers as a team look to have a little spring in their step with Kaepernick calling the singles out on the field. Why temp fate? You go with what is working and you look to the future. Kaepernick is the future of the San Francisco 49ers…Keep moving forward and don’t look back until somethings demands it…
