What if Harbs goes with Smith on Wednesday? Which I think he will do.
It will be interesting to see which QB is named the starter. I could see it going wither way based on the statements made in coach's presser today. So, in that regard, I think it is premature to declare that Smith has "lost his job."
However, regardless of who one thinks is a better QB and assuming CK starts from here on out, to state that Smith did not lose his job due to injury seems disingenuous: If Smith doesn't get concussed, Kaep never comes in to QB the rest of the Lambs game. Now, if coach goes with Kaep because of how he has played in recent weeks (which is very well), that is different.
