“We’re all in lockstep as an organization that Alex Smith is our guy,” said Harbaugh. “It’s well-documented. You saw the way he played this year. (He is a) tremendous leader on our football team.”
Despite Harbaughs continued support for Smith, reports have indicated that the 49ers will give Colin Kaepernick a shot at earning the starting quarterback’s job. At this point in time, it’s safe to say that the 49ers will not be one of the team’s pursuing Peyton Manning during the offseason.
