I'm making this for 2 reasons - I haven't seen this thread here, and I want to know how people decide which QB to start. It seems like a really interesting situation the 49ers have gotten into.
Basically, a refresher, we have a starting QB (Alex Smith) who gets injured, allowing the backup QB (Kaepernick) to play. Kaepernick goes 16-23 for 243/2 TD in a blowout against a top ranking Bears team.
If you're in Harbaugh's shoes who do you start?
-Impressive win against a team that was supposed to have a top defense.
-Can run (Well?)
-Stronger arm than Smith
-Lack of experience in a season where 49ers are making a SB run
-49ers had an impressive 2011 season with him at the helm
-Age 28, has problems running the ball, weak arm.
-Experienced QB in a season where 49ers are making a SB run
-Expected to be healthy enough to start this week
*I'm sure there are things i missed, i'm not an expert on either QB
So the question is, who do you start this week @NO/rest of the season, and why?
