Colin Kaepernick stepped in for the injured Alex Smith and he played exceptionally well, this kid showed he has what it takes to be a great NFL quarterback and it gives 49ers coach a great deal of depth at one of the most important positions on a football team. Colin Kaepernick didn’t miss a beat with his 49ers team who embarrassed the Chicago Bears on national television Monday night. Kaepernick threw for 243 yards going 16 for 23 and 2 touchdowns. He was sacked once and the 49ers downed the Bears 32 to 7 Monday night.
Alex Smith has to be wondering if he can remain the teams starter after watching what Kaepernick brings to the table. The kid was cool under pressure and he said the best advice he got going into the game was from his father who said, “Just PLay Your Game”. That is what Kaepernick did, he played a game that turned a lot of heads and if Smith struggles I would imagine Harbaugh wouldn’t hesitate to pull him and replace him with Kaepernick…..
