The Official Aldon Smith Thread

Team is missing him. Thus why they've been blitzing so much. Have yet to see Skuta make a play. Fir a giod period of the game Palmer was at ease in the pocket. Just gotta push on. Hopefully once some guys get healthy on the d line you start to see those guys create some pressure.

Skuta has sack against the Texans and he generally set a good edge.
I missed that sack. Dude was invisible today.

I don't think Skuta played as much as he did the past few games. I think Lemonier played more than normal but I could be wrong on that one. I think Skuta is mainly the edge setting run defender and Lemonier is the pass rusher although Skuta can rush a bit too. I don't think not having Haralson or Johnson has hurt us that bad. We are giving Lemonier a young rookie valuable experience and he will actually be with the team next year. Haralson and Johnson were FA's anyways. I think we are missing a healthy deep DL more than what we lost with Aldon being out. We never had that much depth to behind with with Dial and Carradine being out and you throw in Williams on top of it plus McDonald and TJE getting banged up. The secondary really stepped up top to bottom this year unlike some of the offensive corps. Yeah so far our WR depth has hurt us far more than losing Aldon. That, the coaches, Kap, OL at times has been what's held the team back. Penalties too up until the past few games. A lot of things really but the OLB spot not as bad as you would think. Although, like someone said it has resulted in us blitzing a little bit more with Bowman and company but maybe that isn't a bad thing. There were plenty of times when Aldon was with us and we couldn't get any pressure and we would never blitz. If I look at what is wrong with the team OLB is far down the list even with Aldon gone. Then again we haven't played the best QB's the past 3 weeks so that has helped. We'd be missing Aldon more if we were playing Rodgers, Brady, Brees, etc instead of a struggling Bradford, Schaub and gun slinging Palmer.

That's mostly common sense. At best he might be available last 4 weeks IMO which is gravy under the circumstances.

No. He said, they are not counting on having him back. I think there is a difference between the two. Not to mention it's the PC thing for the FO to say at this point. I wouldn't read too much into that tweet.
didnt he report saturday the gronk was playing sunday?

Everyone is making WAY too much of this report.

NOTHING has changed.

Adam is reporting something that the 49ers have been saying since day one...Aldon won't be back till they think he's ready to come back.

If he comes out of rehab and immediately relapses...he ain't playing this year. If he comes out of rehab (usually 28 days) and does well, they'll likely give him a few weeks to get ready and he'll return after the bye.

The point is that nobody knows 100% when he'll be back. If he does well in rehab as has thus far been reported he'll be back after the bye.

It doesn't do them nor Aldon any good to leave him to his own devices all season. Thats just more opportunity to be on his own and relapse. They will want him in the locker room and around the team. If he's going to be there then there is no reason not to play him if he's taking the necessary steps.

Effectively, they are telling Aldon it isn't a forgone conclusion he plays. He has to earn it. He likely will and...again...be back after the bye.
