Golden Nuggets: Nine Sacks? Sign Aldon Smith Up

I don't usually make many predictions when it comes to our San Francisco 49ers, or really, any team or fighter that I happen to enjoy. I don't know if it's borne of some subconscious superstition or it's just something I don't do because I feel like I'm biased. I never bet on my teams or fighters for that very reason. Anyway - I'm going to predict Aldon Smith gets at least two sacks, maybe 2.5 on Sunday when the 49ers take on the Washington Redskins. They allowed nine sacks last week against the Buffalo Bills. Should be entertaining. Onto the links for the day, folks. I'm going to include Chronicle posts (SFGate) again, in limited fashion, but be warned that they have auto-playing video ads right now. Enjoy the linkage.
