08:02 AM ET 06.01 | Don't expect to hear much more from Jim Harbaugh about Alex Smith until the lockout is over. In what would appear to be a response to Harbaugh's post-draft comments regarding unrestricted free agent quarterback Alex Smith, the NFL has sent the 49ers a memo asking them to not discuss their free agents during the lockout. ... "I'm not answering any questions about Alex Smith," Harbaugh said. "The league has mandated we do not talk about him ... The NFL has mandated that we don't talk about players who are not under contract -- who are free agents who haven't signed. We've been sent a memo saying we can't talk about it."

I think they should issue an order that Alex Smith not be talked about even after the lockout ends. Mediocrity should be discussed as little as possible.

Oh. You mean JIM Harbaugh? When I read gag and Harbaugh, I thought it was a reference to the Ravens in the playoffs.

So why not put duct tape over his mouth in this often-used picture?

We would then be deprived of this confident smile sending us forth into the day.

Subtle difference between gag and choke.

A gag order on Rex Ryan would be more welcome.
