Question: Last season Alex Smith took every snap of every game. What if he isn't that lucky this season? What are your thoughts on the Niners' backups at quarterback?
Dennis, Elk Grove
Answer: Well, there are few backups with as much experience as Trent Dilfer. And Shaun Hill and Luke Getsy have extremely high football IQs. As long as Frank Gore is running strong, the 49ers won't ask Smith's backup - whoever he is - to do too much.
