I think everybody is rushing too quickly to judgment about Alex leaving here but in all honesty we still do not know what we have in Kaepernick. Yes the youngster looked terrific in the Bears game but it's also important to remember that all signs were pointing that Alex was to start that game until Monday morning. The Bears had no game film on Kaep and probably were not completely prepared for his skill set. I would like to see how Kaep handles the job when teams have game film to properly prepare for him. If Kaep starts, I think the only reason is that Alex still wasn't cleared medically till late in the week where Kaep had taken the reps all week and been very involved in the game plan, I think Harbaugh goes with Kaep for that reason, but I still believe Alex is his guy for now.
I think the team will return to Alex next week whether we beat the Saints or not unless Kaep just blows the scoreboard up. Alex is the vet and got us very close to the super bowl last year. It's too late in the season now to start a controversy and I think Harbaugh understands that. This time of the year is where Alex's leadership and experience will be more crucial then ever.
Next year we start with a clean slate and then I believe the best man will truley win the job. I think Alex hangs around for atleast one more season.
