Basically, if Kyle Williams hangs onto the punt returns last year, Niners make the SB and very well might have won it. Smith was good enough then. This year's Niners team may even be better. He hasn't done anything to lose the job and should be given back the job. If he struggles, you know you have a bigtime talent behind him that can come in. Plus they can still run packages for Kaepernick like they've done all year. I think Harbaugh will ultimately play it like that.
You might be right.
But this is about opinions. In my opinion, Kaepernick showed me something last night in one of the most impressive debuts ever.
Smith is a pretty good QB. He's not great.
Kaepernick can be special IMO and he would be my long-term solution.
Keep in mind Harbaugh drafted this kid in the 2nd round, a lot of people thought it was a reach at the time. He inherited Smith.
For the record, I'd take Smith in a heartbeat.
