Coach Jim Harbaugh has decided to bench Alex Smith and go with Colin Kaepernick

The adage of, “what have you done for me lately” could never ring so true. After leading the San Francisco 49ers to the NFC Championship game last year, Alex Smith has officially been benched in favor of the hot hand, Colin Kaepernick. After last Monday night’s throttling of the NFC North leading Chicago Bears, coach Harbaugh hinted he likes to go with the hot hand. Well he’s now made it official.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Jim Trotter, Harbaugh said the decision was not based on health.
