Today’s edition of Around the Stick, we have a budding Bromance between Alex Smith and Jim Harbaugh, Colin Kaepernick is ready to battle Smith for the starting QB job, Akers has no ill will towards the Eagles and PFW takes a look at the 49ers draft needs.
Matthew Barrows writes about the Bromance brewing between Alex Smith and Jim Harbaugh. Not only were they partners at the AT&T Pro-Am, but they made the drive to Pebble Beach together and Smith is caddying for Harbaugh on Thursday. Peyton who?
Akers spoke with CSNPhilly about his departure from the Eagles. “I have no hard feelings now for the Eagles and the decision they made,” Akers told CSN. That’s their business decision, that’s how they feel their company needs to be run.”
Colin Kaepernick is looking at the QB job as open competition come training camp. And he’s ready to battle Smith for that job. “I plan on being in San Francisco and plan on trying to take the starting job,” Kaepernick said. “That’s what your goal is as a football player.”
