Jim Harbaugh might not be able to fix this one.
After declaring Colin Kaepernick the starter against the St. Louis Rams, ending Alex Smith's tenure with the San Francisco 49ers seems to be the next likely move.
Kaepernick was Harbaugh's guy in his first NFL draft. You can bet that it would take more than one poor performance for the head coach to turn back to Smith.
However, there are plenty of other teams that should put in an offer for the former No.1 overall pick. He's only 28 and will certainly have the drive to become better after such a public dismissal.
