You Smith haters are the ones that need to get over it. Just because we don't blindly believe Kaepernick is Jesus in cleats, and that Harbaugh can do no wrong, does not mean that we are "resentful" or "hating on" Kaep. It also does not mean we think Smith "should be starting" or any of the other crap that you guys are saying. The bottom line is that every single time someone says something remotely critical of Kaepernick, the come back is "well Alex couldn't do this or that." As if that is some type of valid excuse for Kaepernick's mistakes or shortcomings.
Well I guess it will be hard for you to follow this team for years to come. There isn't a single person here who thinks Kaep is perfect. I've seen many fair criticisms about him. My problem is with the people who make silly claims like Alex could have done better or Kaep's playing style is why the D has been terrible or questioning if Alex will win the QB battle next year. That kind of crap is pathetic. You are free to critique Kaep but there's really not much to critique him on. He has started 10 games and has done some amazing things. The only time I hear negativity about him is on here by fans who are so caught up in their adulation for Smith they can't appreciate how great Kaep has been in the grand scheme of things.
Smith can win one way and unfortunately, we don't have the D or special teams to rely on that kind of play from our QB. Best of luck to him on his new team.
considering many are blaming the D it looks like neither can win without a strong performance from the D
Well, one experienced veteran guy had the #1 rated defense, kicker and return team and got as far as the NFCCG.
The other guy making only his 10th start didn't have any of those luxuries and still almost pulled off a Superbowl win.
This is futile though, I wish Alex Smith all the best in his next stop and hope all his supporters here will support the 49ers with Kaepernick. Because neither he or Harbaugh are going anywhere anytime soon.
