I won't argue that Alex Smith has ever done anything to prove he's more than an efficient game manager. What I find bizarre is the notion that Kaepernick has proven he's better than an efficient game manager. To me Kaepernick has the potential of being more of a playmaker, but that is probably going to come with a lot more mistakes as well. A team with the defense and running game of the 49ers is better off with a proven game manager than a boom or bust guy. This isn't like replacing Kyle Orton after a losing streak. This is like replacing Orton in the middle of that 6 game win streak in 2009.
