Jim Harbaugh all but quashed any notion that Colin Kaepernick's bad pitch and the 49ers' subsequent loss would lead to a change at quarterback.
"I will let you know if there's a change," Harbaugh said afterward. "But right now, I feel as if (the starter vs. Miami) it would be the same this week. And I'm proud of Kap - proud of the way he played. He did some things, some really good things, under a lot of heat and duress and handled himself well, gave our team a chance to win."
Kaepernick was 21-for-32 for 208 yards in the game and rushed for 84 more yards, including a 50-yard run that set up David Akers' go-ahead field goal late. But, he also committed the game's biggest error - an errant pitch to Ted Ginn with 3:06 remaining and the 49ers in control of the game. Still, Kaepernick's fantasy value is way higher than Alex Smith's, and this week's matchup against the Dolphins should put CK around the low-end QB1 area.
