The financial situation is convenient from a salary cap perspective. Kaepernick has a very low cap hit, which is obviously very important, because it gives us the ability to front-load contracts, to sign players like Iupati and Goldson.
However, there is no way in heck Jed York or Trent Baalke have anything to do with the decision on who the starting quarterback will be.
Don't bet on it! If the boss want's something it's going to happen. Been there, done that. I've worked for people, managed people and I've owned my own company .. and what the boss wants ... happens. Because if it doesn't ...well ... there's always the door. NO ONE and I MEAN ..NO ONE is bigger than the owner.
They may not make the right decision, but they're paying you your salary ... so better listen or hit the unemployment line.
And before anyone says ... Harbaugh is such a good coach that another team will pick him up right away. It may be so but where and what team?
Being a good coach is one thing, but to be successful, you have to have the right players and yes, owners to make it all happen.
Lots of good coaches that wound up with the wrong team and couldn't make it happen: i.e. Holmgren, Parcells, Mike Shanahan, Hank Stram, Dick Nolan and Jim Mora to name just a few.
