Here’s my dad’s column about the 49ers quarterback vacancy. He argues that Jim Harbaugh blew it with Peyton Manning, and unless he handles it correctly, could also blow it with Alex Smith. I totally disagree with the second part of his argument. My dad says the Niners need Smith. I say they’re better off going with Kaepernick. Also, the Dolphins just signed David Garrard, taking away some of Smith’s leverage. My dad mentions it but doesn’t give it the emphasis I think it deserves. Still, I thought his column would be worth your while. Please don’t throw any vile epithets his way. To read it, click here.
