Shockingly, many of the 49ers clips are about the same story: Billy Bajema's BACK at practice....wait a second, no that's not the story (although he did return to practice after missing the St. Louis game. Of course if he hadn't returned, maybe Manny Lawson is still playing...but whatever. There are obviously several articles about Manny Lawson, so I'll bunch them together with bullet points if you'd prefer to avoid the carnage:
- Mike Nolan is not letting on who will start at OLB this Sunday. It's clearly down to Moore, Navies and Haralson though.
- Clearly that side of the field will be tested by the Steelers offense. Someone is gonna have to step up big.
- The Sac Bee version of the story.
- The Chronicle's version of the story.
- Ray Ratto's take on things. Weakening the defense means the offense will need to actually step up even more than already required....not a good sign.
- The SJ Mercury News version of the story.
Hines Ward and the Steelers know to be wary of Nate Clements.
Vernon Davis spoke with Coach Nolan about his concerns on getting more involved in the offense. At least The Disease didn't go to the press first.
Gary Plummer goes over the points of the game for this weekend over at sf49ers.com.
Piece over at Fox Sports basically talking about how the 49ers luck isn't the worst thing in the world.
