Does anyone really think that Jim Harbaugh will ever go back to Alex Smith? Barring injury of course, it is clear the second year coach is going to ride the second year pro Colin Kaepernick as far as possible.
After walking in and taking the league by storm last season, with the most stout defence in the league, the 49ers have had all the pieces needed to be an elite team. That is expect the man under centre. Alex Smith has been moulded into as good of a player as he will ever be by Harbaugh, and may actually be able to find another job because of it. But the former first overall pick lacks the dynamic skills that the new starter has seeping through his pores.
Harbaugh made the call that he wanted Kaepernick on draft day. Taken ahead of Andy Dalton who already has 14 wins under his belt, Kaepernick was seen as a raw prospect out of Nevada in need of coddling to ensure that he could maximize his potential.
So he worked with Harbaugh and Smith for a year an...

After likening an NFL QB to a CEO, a columnist took 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick to task for his tattoos, writing, "you don’t want your CEO to look like he just got paroled.”
San Francisco 409ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has announced that Colin Kaepernick will be their starting quarterback going forward.

From the begining I’ve believe Kaepernick gives the 49ers the best chance to win, so I believe this is the best move for them.

Om Wednesday, David Whitley of Sporting News published an article slamming San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for having tattoos on his arms. I know it sounds stupid and it is.
Kapeernick’s parents have come out and expressed their unhappiness with the article.
Suffice to say that Rick and Teresa Kaepernick, the parents who adopted Colin as a baby, weren’t happy...
Former San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback Alex Smith had the reaction you would expect after being demoted.
It sucks, Smith said, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News. I feel the only thing I did to lose my job was get a concussion.
Smith had not played since suffering a concussion in a tie against the St. Louis Rams three weeks ago. Calin Kaepernick...

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith spoke to the media on Thursday for the first time since coach Jim Harbaugh named Colin Kaepernick the team’s starting quarterback, and reports say he was full of disappointment.
“I mean, it sucks,” Smith said, via CSN Bay Area. “I don’t know what else to say.”
Smith was knocked out of San Francisco’s Week 10 game against the...
A quarterback switch is common place when a team is struggling but the San Francisco 49ers appeared to be one of the best teams in the NFL. When Alex Smith was concussed in a game against the St. Louis Rams in Week 10 he found out how quickly one can be replaced in the NFL.
“I mean, it sucks. I don’t know what else to say,” Smith said Thursday, per Matt Maiocco of Comcast SportsNet...
Colin Kaepernick has officially been given the chance to become the next face of the San Francisco 49ers, and so far he has answered the call. There has been little to criticize Kaepernick for in his first two NFL starts, both of which were convincing wins. While it would be difficult to criticize him for his play, one writer felt the need to bash him for something totally unrelated...
Thanks to @hansrasmussen for watching ESPN closely for this solid grammatical error. Actually, “unbeated” does work in that graphic. Kaepernick is 2-0 and unbeated. He’s also non-defeated. Look at the new 49ers QB’s remaining five games; looks like 4-1 or 3-2 at worst. Mr. Unbeated should be just fine.

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...
Earlier this week, the Sporting News' David Whitley, seemingly without provocation, went after 49ers starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick ... for having tattoos.
"San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick is going to be a big-time NFL quarterback," Whitley wrote in a story published Wednesday. "That must make the guys in San Quentin happy. Approximately 98.7 percent...
Just as he was playing possibly the of his eight-year career, 49ers quarterback Alex Smith saw it all unravel in the last three weeks after a concussion sidelined him on Nov. 11 and second-year pro Colin Kaepernick stepped in. Now healthy, Smith finally spoke up Thursday, a day after head coach Jim Harbaugh named Kaepernick the starter for Sunday's game in St. Louis and, it...
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...
Only way a person believes that tattoos suddenly make this sweet faced individual look like a thug is if they’re one chromosome from having one chromosome.
So, let me guess…people learned zero, zip, nada, nothing from Allen Iverson?
Let me refresh your memory. Allen Iverson was lambasted for years for having visible tattoos and cornrows. Fastforward barely a decade after...
