The San Francisco 49ers are going back to Troy Smith as their starting quarterback while leaving open the possibility they might switch to Alex Smith at any time.
Head coach Mike Singletary has made up his mind on who will get the call at quarterback for the 49ers’ must-win game at St. Louis. He just isn’t saying which Smith will be under center.
A lot of things haven’t gone according to plan this year for the San Francisco 49ers on offense. Near the top of the list is the way the team has used Vernon Davis.
The move comes a day after Singletary said he was contemplating the switch from Troy Smith back to the 2005 No. 1 overall draft pick following a 34-16 loss at Green Bay on Sunday.
Mike Singletary tries to block out the speculation about his uncertain future with San Francisco, insisting he refuses to read newspapers or other reports and that he knows full well what could ultimately happen in a matter of a month.
