Quarterback Alex Smith is the 49ers' starter heading into the offseason, coach Mike Singletary said. And that's the way it will probably remain, but he did say the organization would continue to look for ways to get better.
"Alex Smith is the quarterback going forward," Singletary said during his season-ending press conference. "But the thing I want you to understand is we're always trying to get better at that position and constantly evaluating. That does not mean we won't sign another quarterback. It's a very important position and we're always looking at it."
