It's not real drama in my mind. Plus it isn't alex smith's decision. If I were Alex I would bolt elsewhere but it isn't his call as we have him under contract.
The Niners will not take up Alex's contract at $8.25 million as a back-up. It's too much.
Don't be so dismissive of Tolzien. He'll have been in the system for two years. Harbaugh has said that he's a starting caliber QB and I believe that he means it.
Some are saying JJ. I say "no way". He's been in the league for a while now and he's not been able to cut it. It's a waste of a spot for a third-stringer; someone, a draftee, you bring in to develop and maybe you strike gold. Good, confident coaches do that and Harbaugh is one of those, I believe.
