Blog: #49ers QB Colin Kaepernick's 4 INTs this season followed by 4 TD drives; Alex Smith 10 INTs followed by 0 TDs.
(Sorry if this is a repeat)
I think at this point all the doubters were proven to be ignorant of the obvious talent disparity. It never was a close call. The Chicago Bears game was evidence enough for me.
The 49ers know Smith's ceiling by now, and it doesn't have the potential to be amongst the best.
This was an easy call. JH made a game plan around Kap's unique skills. It was a riskier one but one that had higher reward too. Can't do that with Smith.
I chuckled in hindsight when I recall the JH statement (a hint) before the game:
"Kap's got the game plan down", or something to that effect.
