49ers Aldon Smith has been suspended without pay for the first nine games.
Roger Goodell and the NFL are on a rampage here and while some fans might be upset, it is the intelligent and sensible fan who understands that this type of action is needed. Smith has been stopped for drunk driving multiple times, he's had both illegal narcotics and firearms found both in his car and on his person and has had the police summoned to his home on more than one occasion due to problems caused by gang member with whom he associates regularly. He had a mandated stint in rehab last year and was allowed to return to the field and he obviously didn't learn a single thing. Keep taking away their likelihood and maybe, just maybe, they'll wise-up and stop being such morons.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Zach Miller caught two passes on seven targets for 10 yards and a TD on Thursday night vs Green Bay.
Miller got the start in place of the injured Martellus Bennett on Thursday night. In all, he finished with two catches and a touchdown on seven targets, looking mediocre, however doing his best with the hand he was dealt. Anyone who started him in daily leagues could have expected better, however it is a bit spoiled to come away with much more than a TD as a definite backup. Consider him a wise play on Thursday night, and a keen start going forward at least until Bennett comes back healthy. Analysis: Dom Murtha
