Harbaugh Not Close to Naming the 49’ers Starting QB Yet


After the first exhibition game, things have not changed dramatically with the QB spot for the Niners. Alex Smith is leading the 49ers’ first-team offense but coach John Harbaugh says nobody has yet to win the starting job.

“I know as a quarterback when you’re competing for a starting job, you like to make it clear-cut,” Harbaugh said Saturday in a conference call with reporters, one day after the 49ers opened the exhibition season with a 24-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints.”So far, it hasn’t had a chance to be clear-cut, yet. So we’ll continue to practice. I don’t want those guys worried about it. I want them practicing and working and not worrying, and it’ll unfold.”
