I like Alex Smith as much as anyone. But I feel like Kaep gives the Niners the chance to be explosive. And if he does well... with a great defense... good game NFL
those numbers don't equal out to Kap being more explosive though. Alex has 304 yards on 27 attempts. Kap has 360 yards but on 40 attempts.
If the team wants Kap--I assume Crab does based on his lukewarm history with Alex, then I think Harbaugh will go with the majority. What Vernon and Gore want will go a long way. It would be kind of fitting that Alex would lose his job during the best stretch of his career, all things considered. But, this late in the season? I think you dance with who brung you, and next season Kap is on deck.
