After the 49ers lost to the Colts yesterday, Jed York spoke to the media about Aldon Smith and why the team played him. “I don’t know that there’s a right decision in this situation,” he said.
Wrong. There is a right decision if you want to make the right decision, if you actually care enough to take the time to think it through, if making the right decision matters to you. The decision to play Smith was blatantly wrong. It smacked of self interest and had nothing to do with Smith’s well being.
