Yes. I agree with this. I have mixed emotions about Kaep starting this one. Kaepernick played great at Candlestick in front of the home crowd, but playing on the road at N.O. is completely different, and it can be really tough for an inexperienced QB. If Smith is cleared to play, I would start him, because he has played in these environments before. If he isn't doing well, you could always bring Kaep in to relieve him. Smith has played well his last two starts, so I think it sends the wrong message to pull him until he starts to falter.
i know,, i am torn to,, it does not seem right he should lose his job because he got hurt,, but it would not be the first time it has occured and you can not ignore monday, actually you can not ignore the rams game were he put us in a spot to win twice... you are spot on,,, we really need to see him on the road in a dome vs a bunch of saints fans who all have head lice. after two home games,, we have to see him play in this enviroment. again as i have said before,,, i am so happy with the way the two guys have handled this situation with style poise and grace. young and montana could learn a couple things from these guys in that regard
