For a while there, I don’t know what dominated the headlines more… the “fiscal cliff” or Colin Kaepernick. Yeah, Alex Smith was having the season of his life when he went down. We get it. Who wouldn’t feel badly for him? And had The Kid
played poorly against da Bears, we wouldn’t be talking about this. But somehow, he’s provided a spark… and the 49ers beat a couple of good teams, then struggled against those conniving Rams. So the biggest game of the year is always the next one. The Miami Dolphins come to the Stick this Sunday, and as Alex steams, Colin has a chance to be The Man… again. If the 49ers take the Dolphins lightly, it will be a very morose Monday morning. If Kap dominates, Harbaugh will look like a genius. I can’t wait.
