Exclamation Niners officially scratch Alex Smith

Itís official.

49ers coach Alex Smith wonít play on Monday night against the Bears.

I hope he plays next week against the Saints so there will be no excuses from the whiner faithful when we spank dat a$$!!

medical director and concussion expert, Dr. Dan Garza, made the determination.

Itís still unclear whether Smith reported concussion symptoms, or whether he failed the teamís ďcontactĒ test. The 49ers use the ďcontactĒ test for every player who has suffered a concussion (contrary to a recent report that one player wasnít required to pass a ďcontactĒ test), subjecting the player to simulated game contact to the head and monitoring him for symptoms in lieu of securing clearance and then having the player suffer concussion symptoms in a game.

Some other teamís use the ďcontactĒ test, but itís not required. In this case, the end result of the teamís analysis is that Smith will be required to not play.

"Contact test". So, basically, they take a guy who just had a concussion, and hit them in the head and see if the concussion comes back?

Can we get Rickey Jackson to administer the test?

That's the same thing I was thinking.
It sounds like a job for a bounty hunter.
