Golden Nuggets: Pretty stoked.

I'm pretty stoked right now, mostly because I just found out that Brian Jennings was on KNBR recently. So I'm listening to the audio of that while I write this. He's pretty bummed out that Andy Lee actually had more tackles than he did. He firmly believes that the 49ers lost because he didn't have enough tackles. What a guy, no?

Anyway ... the name of the game right now is Mike Johnson and what he can do to improve this offense we have here. I actually feel optimistic after listening to him, but then again, I've felt optimistic after listening to coaches before, and it hasn't been the best choice. I've been let down quite a bit on that front. Well, it's 3:00 a.m., and I haven't started on the links. So apologies for the late-ness. Enjoy 'em, though.

It's Johnson's turn to get offensive. Oh, the puns. I actually just mis-typed and put "punts." I'm scared. (PressDemocrat.com)

Johnson will be looking to diversify the offense and get everyone involved. Let's see if he can do it effectively. (49ers.com)

The Alex Smith-to-Michael Crabtree connection isn't exactly off to a great start so far this season. Ouch, those numbers burn. (PressDemocrat.com)

Falcons CB Dunta Robinson sees the 49ers as a big test. Well, that's nice of him. (Yahoo.com)

If you wanted some bad numbers, Eric Branch has you covered with a few depressing totals. Thanks, man. (PressDemocrat.com)

Here's the audio from Brian Jennings on KNBR. So good. (49ers.com)

Alex Smith is 1/11th of the problem. I think that's a good way to put it, honestly. (SFGate.com)

Eric Heitmann's return gives us some options on the offensive line, but to me, the only option is to put him right back in at C and let Baas compete elsewhere. (SacBee.com)

Sorry for the less-than-complete Nuggets, folks. Will update in a bit if I have the time. Expect them back to their usual goodness tomorrow. Yes, I said goodness.
