Golden Nuggets: Confidence in either, but Alex Smith is hot hand as well

Friday, November 23rd, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

So some people have suggested that Colin Kaepernick is the likely starter, and I don't quite understand it. The 49ers have won a lot with Alex Smith at the helm, and I don't think one game or riding with the "hot hand" is a great idea. At any rate, I'm at least more confident in Kaepernick at this point.

Today, we're going to have some quick links for a number of reasons. There's not a ton of new ones, I imagine the beat writers will get some morning stuff up so if you happen to see a link, post it up in the comments if you could. Anyway, here's the linkage for the day, folks. Enjoy.
