Jim Harbaugh got caught up in the moment, now he has no way out. Quarterback controversies are tricky situations that don't need fuel to further ignite them. Harbaugh got so giddy over Colin Kaepernick, he literally handed him the starting quarterback position. However, after losing to St. Louis, he may realize that he may have rushed the very decision he created, and thus put the 49ers Super Bowl chances in danger. When Harbaugh said he likes to go with the hot hand, does that mean a real hot hand or the one he keeps warming up for the media? He’s put himself in a jam now.

  • Coach Harbaugh comes out of this looking like a Genius or a Fool...depending on how Kaepernick performs? That's right, Jim H. has staked his entire reputation and last year's coach of the year award all based on how an unproven second year QB will perform.Talk about pressure...and no, I didn't mean Harbaugh, I meant the amount of pressure "unfairly" placed on the back of Colin Kaepernick. I wish you good luck with this decision Jim, because you are going to need it....Back to the point: Harbaugh...Genius or Fool? My bet is on the latter.As everyone seems to go on saying..."better put on your big boy pants now"... Yes, I know... think it sounds stupid too, but I said it anyway.
  • The reason you dont put a rookie QB in over a veteran is that sooner or later the rookie is going to make rookie mistakes. DO you hear that Harbough? Put Alex Smith back in and stop acting like a dork.
  • In Jim we trust???!!!??!!??!!
