Whenever Kaepernick is ready, Alex is gone. His contract is structured perfectly for this move and I highly doubt it's coincidence.
If anyone believes Harbaugh can't mold an athletically superior QB than Alex Smith into an effective starter, they're only fooling themselves. Alex was a mess without Harbaugh (for the many reasons continuously brought up in his defense), so if someone doesn't think Kaepernick can be groomed to be at least as effective as Alex in Harbaugh's offense, they're in denial.
I am not trying to knock Alex, either. The whole situation just seems so obvious to me, especially because of Alex's contract allowing the team to release him without taking a big hit after this year.
