Jason La Canfora tweeted a few minutes ago that the 49ers did not place a waiver claim on recently released QB Trent Edwards. I wasn't expecting this but there had been some discussion in a FanPost about it. At this point the team is all in with Alex Smith and if David Carr isn't going to be utilized, Troy Smith would seem to be next on the totem pole.
Just out of curiosity, how long do people think the team will stick with Alex Smith in 2010? Will he be the guy starting all season, or will he be replaced before the end of the season? This does not include replacement because of injury.
