One of the story lines from the Kansas City Chiefs 31-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers should be the play of DE Shaun Smith, who ended the game with four tackles while being a consistent force at defensive end.
We'll get to that eventually but, for now, we've got another player who has accused Smith of grabbing him below the belt.
Early in the second half, 49ers RT Anthony Davis was flagged for an unnecessary roughness penalty. As David Fucillo of NIners Nation said, it seemed like a "silly penalty by a heated rookie."
After the game, 49ers head coach Mike Singletary said of the penalty, "I think he got hit inappropriately. After a while, there's only so much you can take. He (Davis) was wrong for retaliating and he knows that."
Hmm...that part "there's only so much you can take" would suggest something fishy was going on.
