    Kap has played pretty well and has a MUCH MUCH MUCH higher ceiling. I think Smith should have been allowed to finish the year as I believe he gives them the best shot right now. This move might pay off in the long run though.

    Niners gave up a chance to be Super Bowl favorites, so they could be a better team down the road.

    Mind numbing.

    Especially considering they could have had both! Anywhere near the success they had last playoffs and they have bargaining leverage with Smith and can start Kapernick next season. Win-win.

    Smith's a UFA.

    If you're starting Kaep next year, why would there be any leverage with Smith? There'd be zero leverage because there'd be a zero percent chance he'd re-sign there.

    I thought three way ties are decided by conference record, but I'm not sure. I'm also to lazy to look this up right now... yes... I'm to lazy to use google or apparently use proper punctuation.

    Yeah, I dunno. I'm confused.

    Thought he was meaning that they could re sign Alex for cheap cuz they could say they would just start Kaep if he didn't re-sign, but that doesn't really make sense either.

    Oh well.

    Go Alex Smith, Go Utes, Death to the 49ers.

    You're right about not having anything to bargain with. It would have still been win-win to stick with Smith through the playoffs then Kap has all next season to get acclamated to the offensive personnel and them to him. I just think they shot themselves in the foot this year by making the move they did.

    Correct. Pats would be the 1 seed, Texans the 2 seed, and the Peyton's would be the 3 seed.

    The Doncos aren't gonna lose. The Colts-Texans game should be interesting. Obviously us Pats fans will be pulling for the Colts and a #2 seed.

    Assuming the Pats beat the Dolphins, these all win. I also put in a few more which will all win too unless the Browns win this weekend. My NBA season ones are looking solid so far too.
