There's a reason I don't post much on here anymore people are all over the place here either total homers or haters.
Read what I said again, maybe get a parent to help you if you're still struggling. Alex Smith gives the 49ers the best chance to win right now because he plays safe. He won't throw the ball into tight coverage, he'll take the dumpoff if he feels guys aren't wide open deep. He'll take a sack instead of risking a throw. He's safe which tends to limit turnovers which helps teams win especially when they have a very good defense to work with.
That doesn't change the fact that Kaepernick has the tools you look for in a QB but he isn't on Alex's level in terms of reading defenses, knowing the offense, etc...obvious given this is his 2nd year vs Alex being a seasoned vet at this point.
The reason I mentioned the throw to Moss is because Kaepernick throws very well on the run. Only an idiot would assume I meant I want Colin to start because of one throw. The only reason i posted in this thread was because people can't just call it like it is, Alex supporters for some reason feel the need to dog Kaepernick and I think that's stupid. The guy is unproven but that doesn't mean he's terrible. It doesn't mean he's great either but nobody knows right now. He has great potential and he has all the physical skills a good QB needs. Once he's there mentally he could be an excellent player but RIGHT NOW...Alex Smith is the better guy for the team given their identity.
Take a look at Eli Manning. He makes throws that few coaches would advice but he takes risks, throws his receivers open and that leads to some huge plays. It also leads to turnovers sometimes and that's why the Giants are so inconsistent.
Kaepernick is that type of player - he's not a guy who will shy away from throwing into tight coverage and he'll take the shots. Alex Smith doesn't do that. But that means he's a better choice for this ballclub right now. He's not flashy but he's safe and he gets wins.
And lastly...don't make idiotic assumptions. I'm a big boy if I meant something I would say it.
