I'm back to fill in for James on the Nuggets this morning. It's another busy day as the 49ers continue preparing for Saturday's preseason contest with the Oakland Raiders. The most noteworthy articles today revolve around Alex Smith reportedly taking a sizable lead in the QB race.
Smith hasn't apparently shown something in practice that Colin Kaepernick has not quite been able to match. I suppose we'll find out more about that when the team hits the field Saturday against the Raiders. I guess for now it's just a matter of keeping fingers crossed and hope for the best.
