Dear Jason: Can you believe there were actually people who thought I was dumb enough to fight you? My nickname is Big Diesel, not Big Dummy. Sincerely, Shaq Your NFL Truths for Week 13: 10. It's obvious Jim Harbaugh has a guilty conscience about benching Alex Smith. That's the only explanation for Harbaugh's bizarre statement about Smith still being San Francisco's starting quarterback. Harbaugh put every egg into the Colin Kaepernick basket. If this doesn't work, if the 49ers fizzle in the playoffs because of an offensive letdown, Harbaugh's credibility with players in his locker room and across the league will take a hit. Players hate coaches who lie, which means players hate coaches. Being the head coach often forces a person to lie. As it relates to Alex Smith, Harbaugh has been playing games with the truth since the offseason, since he "evaluated" Peyton Manning. Now Harbaugh is "evaluating" Colin Kaepernick. Harbaugh need...

Straight Outta Stockton - Week 12

This week's Straight Outta Stockton could easily be renamed Straight Outta Aikman as the lead NFL on Fox analyst had a rough time during yesterday's Saints-49ers game.  While a few of those are noted below, I have to pay tribute to the work Aikman is doing to the English language.  Multiple times during Sunday's telecast, Aikman said "I don't disagree"...
