Where did it all go wrong for Alex Smith?
Well it would seem that his concussion suffered in the tied game against St.Louis Rams a month ago, was the beginning of the end. Or is it?
He is ready to play now, in fact he was medically cleared ready the week after his enforced absence. But San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh decided to run, quite literally, with second year QB Colin Kaepernick.
Harbaughs decision seemed to be the right one as the new face in the huddle ran out impressive wins against the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints. This past week however, the wheels come off a little as the Niners offense stuttered somewhat and the Rams once again held them and this time ran out winners late in overtime. The brief look between the two passers as they left the field in the Edward Jones Dome, was almost one of “What happens now?”
