Morning everyone, I'm back from my brief absence. I've been having a lot of those lately, but I'm sincerely trying to cut back on them. Anyway, back now and all is well. Or as close to well as possible. Yesterday we had a great Sunday of football as far as entertainment goes but two negatives as far as the 49ers are concerned. These of course are the Panthers winning their game against the Falcons (the 49ers hold Carolina's first round pick in the 2010 draft) and the Cardinals getting a big divisional win against the Seahawks. Sure it's bad for the 49ers either way who wins that game, but all we need right now is for Arizona to lose. I like the teams chances of fending off a Seahawks team, but not so sure when it comes to Arizona. Still, I see a huge victory coming to 49erland on Sunday, as I said previously the 49ers will beat the Packers, and they'll win big. Here's some links, folks.
