This is from Tim Kawakami's column today:
"Harbaugh has backed himself into a little bit of a corner here with the QB decision... He has said it’s about going with the "hot hand," and that this wasn’t a QB controversy since both guys have been playing so effectively.
That was Harbaugh’s way of denying that he had Kaepernick penciled in all along, and it also allowed him to insist that he still supports Smith."
Kawakami has been following this tract all along and I tend to agree with him. I think whether you agree with the change or desired the change, or not, I think we can all agree that Jim is executing a preconceived plan here. There's going to be some double standards, some sleight of hand, some vacant stares into the face of questions... but all roads lead to Keap being the QB. He has plenty of leash to play poorly, heck, he might even have enough leash to miss a few games with a concussion.. but it's Keap's job now and that's what Jim has been angling for. Right?
