After a very impressive performance by second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh doesn’t sound like he’s ready to have Alex Smith reclaim his starting job.
Harbaugh hinted at going with the “hot hand,” according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

It’s time for the 49ers to turn the page on Smith and go with Kaepernick who is younger and has a great upside than Smith who is what he is….a game manager.
