JH has a plan and a vision and CK is part of that plan and vision. JH is awesome for making AS look like a starter and Smith (while his feelings may be hurt) most likely knows it. I couldn't be happier that the age of the "game manager" seems to have finally come to an end and the age of the contributor or "game breaker" has seemingly started.
Depends. Ofc Harb wants to see how far along CK is and the concussion was the perfect opportunity to do so. Now that he has enough data and now AS is healthy and wants to play again, he has a huge decision, his biggest since becoming the 49er HC, to make on who should be the starting QB here on. It will impact the rest of this season, next season and the future of the team.
I agree there is a certain "gamble" here but JH has been fantastic at strategy on the field, on game planning (all the mental aspects) before the game, and on personnel matters. He handled AS perfectly - he gave him confidence and a "real" chance to develop and he actually turned the conversation from all time BUST to "game manager" JH is a frick'n wizard of the 3 card Monte sort. JH went after Manning and moved up to get CK,,, JH knew what this team was missing and got us a QB - and because of his moves I am overflowing with pride in this complete team... I don't trust easy,,, but man do I trust JH!
