POLL: Harbaugh benching Smith in favor of Kaepernick
 
Good move or Bad move?


OK fixed it.

11-22-2012 04:44 PM

This is the last year of Smith. If he wins the Super Bowl he stays. If he went to the playoffs and lost in the championship game he's done. Even going to SB and losing he's done. No 7 mil roster bonus in April and its off to a new team. I do not see Smith winning a SB. He manages games and that's it. Rarely completes passes downfield. Watching miner games you can see once he is behind its hard for them to comeback.

I thought he still wasn't cleared to play. Give the back up a look on the road. The only position that is weak on that team is QB and if it makes you better why not

Like I just mentioned in the other thread on this same topic ... good move giving Kaepernick a start at this point, but bad move actually naming him the starter.

It's an excellent move.

Hamrob 11-22-2012 05:04 PM

The kid played in one game...and caught the apposing team off guard. What has he done besides that one game? Smith isn't spectacular...but, his QB rating was top 5. I don't think you bench your vet after an injury...and force guys to take sides in the locker room. Harbaugh should know better.

Now, Smith knows that you're not in his corner. If Kaepernack falls on his ass...Harbaugh is screwed.

Smith probably knew Harbaugh wasn't completely in his corner when he didn't sign him before last season was over and Alex was leading his team to NFC title bout....and was resigned only after Manning rejected the 49ers.

Kaepernick is not a Rookie.

Requiem 11-22-2012 05:36 PM

Alex Smith has been terrible is whole career until a decent year this year and last. Threw for over 3,000 once and has never had 20 TDs. Any good QB in the NFL has done just as much as Smith in half the time. Dude sucks.

This and the signs were clear Smith was on borrowed time in San Fran. But still surprised they made move to Kaepernick. Switching starter mid season while still in the playoff hunt (in their case leading the division) is risky. Just ask Shanny

Well technically man didn't create aspirin, he just discovered it.

Technically man didn't create any drug just refined & concentrated it from natural substances

Of course, however people had been using Willow bark and spiraea since Egyptian times. You can't really chew on a plant and get Viagra, for example.

Disagree...I've had chicks suck a root and it affects me exactly like Viagra.

Harbaugh probably thinking Colin had one hell of a game against one of the better defenses in the league, and if he can do that to the Bears defense, he should be good against average to poor defenses. But it is very risky. If Colin has a stinker of a game next week, wow, do you have a big can of open worms now. If you're losing, yeah do it, nothing to lose. But when you're winning, and this doesn't pay off in the next few weeks, whoa, there will be a ton of criticism coming down on Harbaugh.

I just have a question though, is this now official? I know Colin was taking 1st rep snaps in practice early in the week but Harbaugh had said nothing about who was starting the game.

If he were to live in the United States, the Most Interesting Man in the World would reside in one of two states only: Washington or Colorado ... the only two that permit legal recreational use of cannabis. While drinking Dos Eqqis.

BroncoBuff 11-22-2012 08:31 PM

I can't believe Harbaugh officially name him "the starter." Success must have gone to his head, because that's a a plainly foolish thing to do.

Most of the guys on NFL Network think it was the wrong move also. Colin may have more upside then Smith but, like they say, it's a huge risk. You know what you get with Smith, he'll give you some plays, maybe not as much as some other great QB's, but he's probably not going to make many mistakes to cost you game either. And ALOT of players don't like it when you lose your job due to an injury, especially if you are ready to go the following week. Could be some locker room issues with this decision if Colin doesn't churn out some wins. It's not like Smith was out for 6 games and the guy replacing him was lights out for half a season or something. We're talking 1 friggin game. Clearly this is Harbaugh saying Smith was "not my guy" like so many of these coaches do today. Their ego gets in the way. Should make the Saints game much more fun to watch now.
