He's a game manager, not a franchise QB. Without a dominant run game, we need much more from our QB. I hope Kaepernick (or Tolzein) gets in there by the end of the season because we're just wasting our time giving Alex snaps. Soon enough we're going to have to move forward. The sooner, the better.
Sorry to be so pessimistic after a win, but looking ahead, that's what I think we'll be facing.
So you'd hope Smith and hence the 49ers flame out so you can see Kaep?
I never said anything about losing. I'm sure the other two could play uber conservative and easily surpass Alex's 124 passing yards. Alex made a nice throw to Vernon and one to Morgan. Other than that, he was afraid to look upfield. Hence never seeing a wideopen Crabtree in the endzone. He's playing to salvage his career, not to beat defenses.
