Sorry, this is just retarded. Alex has more job security at this point than anyone else not named Rodgers, Brees, Eli or Roethlisberger. Smith did what the coaching staff asked of him, played within the system, didn't turnover the ball and made timely plays when the team needed it.
Changing QB's midstream at this point, especially after making it all the way to the NFC Championship Game would be ridiculous. Get Alex some weapons and see what happens, if he doesn't make any additional progress next year, then yeah, should completely up for grabs in 2013, there's no way in hell Harbaugh's going to look anywhere else and risk throwing the whole season before it even began.
