Alex Smith - QB - 49ers
Coach Jim Harbaugh indicated following Monday night's 32-7 win that he's willing to stick with Colin Kaepernick at quarterback going forward.
In his post-game press conference, Harbaugh had a prime opportunity to squash any notion of a quarterback controversy. He did the exact opposite. "We'll see," said Harbaugh. "I usually tend to go with the guy who has the hot hand. We got two quarterbacks who have a hot hand." Added Vernon Davis after the game, "I feel like somebody took the handcuffs off me." ( Davis caught six balls for 83 yards and a touchdown.) It's clear that Kaepernick gives the Niners their best chance to win both now and in the future. Approached by reporters late Monday, Wally Pipp Alex Smith (concussion) would only say, "They don't want me talking right now."
Like Dilfer said last night though Harbaugh says some off the wall stuff directly after games in press conferences. IMO you don't bench Alex Smith. This was one game by Colin and while he looked really good it was just one game not a complete body of work. If Harbaugh makes this call it could be Doug Flutie, Doug Johnson all over again and we remember how that turned out in the playoffs for the Buffalo Bills.
