Originally written November 28, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
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 of a weapon than Smith and gives the 49ers a better chance at winning.  We’re supposed to find out today who their starter will be.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

  • I think Harbaugh knew when He drafted Kaepernic that He was going to be the leader of the 49ers and just had Smith hold down the fort til He thought Kaepernic was ready and evidently he thinks he's ready, He also drafted Tolzien to be the backup and now will be able to get rid of Alex, sorry for Alex but football is about winning and Harbaugh thinks he has a better chance with Colin in there
  • I would love to jump on the Kaepernic and 49'es bandwagon, since my Raiders are playing with the fantasty people now, kind of patty-caking about Carson Palmer's screen pass stats when behind by 20 points. BUT, I've yet to see either of the 9'ers QB's prove that their peripheral vision can include Randy Moss, who is constantly open downfield.
  • Yeah. The 9'ers got to the NFC championship game last year without a QB.
