"Alex Smith is our starting quarterback. He has not done anything to lose that job," Harbaugh said. "In fact, he's playing at a very high level. Also, Colin Kaepernick, you can't categorize him as a backup quarterback, because he's started games and played very well in those games."
Clearly, Harbaugh is growing tired of all the talk about his quarterback situation, even if much of the drama is of his own creation -- and he refuses to categorize it as a "controversy" with two capable guys in the mix each week. He said again Monday that anything is possible this week, even using both quarterbacks in the game.
"The guys will be hammered," Harbaugh said. "You go to Colin, you go to Alex, 'Should you be the starter?' He's got no good answer for you. He says, 'Yes, I should be the starter' -- we're talking either one -- and you look like you're just building up yourself. If you say no, then they hammer you because you don't think you should be the starter. Then the people, so-called subject matter experts, who talk about, 'You should be making a fuss about it or a stink about it, you shouldn't be that accommodating,' it sends a completely wrong message, to me, for young athletes out there, or high school quarterbacks, where their coach is trying to tell them it's about the team and all of us working together. So that one gets me upset. That's not what our two guys are about."
What difference does it make? They're gonna lose to the Giants anyway, just like in Week 4. Just like last year.
Just what his team needed. A media circus, created by their ego-driven coach.
What an ass clown.....
