Alex Smith is a free agent. Why give a job to someont that has a chance to go to another team. A small chance, but he still does have a chance. The contract will tell if he is the starter or not.

The reason is common sense.

Okay, please tell me why Harbaugh is lacking common sense then.
Kap is Harbaugh's boy no doubt, if his play in camp and ps is on par with Smith-Kap wins hands down_ let's face it we need some one who can put us over the top

Expected. Unless we won the Super Bowl, Jim would have stated this and rightfully so

I can't believe I have to wait 8 months to find out how much Kaep has improved. Hopefully he will no longer earn the nickname Kaeperpick.

Yep. The same "open competition" Patrick Willis has for his spot every year.


Great comparison. A future Hall-of-Famer competing with Larry Grant is exactly like Harbaugh's 2nd round draft protege competing with the all-powerful Alex Smith.

The fact that the draft room was jumping for joy when the Bengals selected Dalton, and that Kaep has all the physical ability in the world to go along with equally adept mental ability. The fact that he has an entire off-season to prepare under Harbaugh. The fact that all he has to do is improve the NFL's 29th ranked passing attack.
Those give me the slightest impression that Kaep MIGHT be able to upgrade the position.

Why are we able to talk about upgrading solid players like Crabtree, Morgan, Terrell Brown, Adam Snyder, and even Pro-Bowl players like Joe Staley, yet, when it comes to upgrading the most important position in professional sports, there can be no debate?

Terrell Brown had a great year, the best of his career, yet if someone said we should upgrade the position, there would be an actual debate about it, not a mud wrestling competition.

Probably not.

Disagree. We caught a break with the new collective bargaining agreement that limits rookie pay. We did not have to break the bank at all with Kaepernick, so even if Smith signs a large contract extension, the salaries of our number 1 and 2 QBs combined will not be unreasonable. If Kaepernick is good enough to beat out Smith who, say what you will, had a pretty damn good year, then we just enjoy the fact that we have a steal (temporariliy) in the Kaepernick deal and Smith will be an overpaid backup and Kaepernick an underpaid starter. I think the presumption will be in Smith's favor, though, so to lose the job next year he'd probably have to play his way out of it. If it's close, Kaepernick sits another year.
I am probably in the minority who wants to look elsewhere for a QB but if we are really grooming Kaep to be the next QB for this team Alex Smith on a 2 year 3rd year team option deal. I would rather go after Peyton Manning.

Absolutely. Both quarterbacks are going to be on the roster next year, its just a question of who wins in training camp; obviously injuries are another factor. That's how Brady was able to get a chance against an Pro-Bowl veteran, who the Patriots had just signed to a massive contract.
