As much as I love cam smith has been the better passer this year, and was only benched because of his unlucky circumstances, not poor play

It is hilarious.

Newton is leading a two win team but getting outplayed by the second string QB of the niners. Just outstandingly funny. It's like everything that Smith said was spot on....

This forum is flooded with stupidity

If Harbaugh has really benched him in favor of Kaepernick then he's not as bright a coach as I thought. Yes, Colin killed the Bears. . .at home. . .when they have had almost no film on him. . .and Gore was running wild. . .

Smith did nothing to lose the job, and if Kaepernick struggles there's going to be some heat in the locker room over a player losing his job just because of injury.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- Alex Smith is supportive of Colin Kaepernick's success, even if the second-year pro takes Smith's starting job as 49ers quarterback.

''If you can't be happy for your teammate's success you're playing the wrong sport. Go play tennis or golf or something,'' Smith said Wednesday. ''That's ridiculous, I think. That doesn't belong in team sports, in my opinion. It's the quarterback position. It gets a lot of attention. We're going to get talked about.''

Smith plans to fight for his job once he is fully healthy, and he had yet to be medically cleared Wednesday after missing Monday night's 32-7 rout of the Bears recovering from a concussion.

Yet coach Jim Harbaugh said that once Smith is available, the QB for the NFC West-leading Niners (7-2-1) could change week to week, and even during the course of a game. Harbaugh gave no indication when he would select his No. 1 for Sunday's game at New Orleans (5-5).

''People are probably drooling all over themselves because they have something to talk about,'' Harbaugh said. ''We'll let it play out. I wouldn't expect an announcement today or any timeline on that. We'll get that to you.''

Is there definate info out there Smith is benched based on performance?

Smith is Captain Checkdown. He's a product of Harbaugh's offense. Kaepernick made throws on Monday night that Smith can't dream of making. I'm surprised they're making the move in the middle of a great season, but Kaepernick is without question the better talent.

I remember thinking the same about Matt Moore vs Jake Delhomme.

"It's unclear whether Smith has been medically cleared to return, but the source said Harbaugh informed him that the decision was not health-related."

If this backfires, this could be the 1st mistake Harbaugh has made leading this team.

Guess we'll see.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
