Here is the opening to my Thursday column. In it I humbly express my extreme misgivings about the way Jim Harbaugh is utlizing Colin Kaepernick:

Jim Harbaugh has done nothing to justify making Colin Kaepernick the 49ers’ starting quarterback instead of Alex Smith.

I long have advocated Kaepernick over Smith, believe he is the superior quarterback. But Harbaugh has done such a poor job of making the transition, I wonder why he bothered in the first place.
