Morning folks, welcome to yet another edition of the Golden Nuggets. Today we've got Aubrayo Franklin on the mind, I have a couple links pertaining to him. Beyond that, I'm not entirely sure what I've got for you. I have a few links, but more than anything I'm a little bit in a hurry and will be doing these a bit early. Thanks to StereoPete for emailing me a couple links, always helps in putting these together each night. I generally stay up until at least 2 AM every night to get 'em done, so anything to make them go a little bit faster is greatly appreciated. We've got some bits from the 49ers website, the general youth camp fare and things like that, and a post about the running back situation and what not. Just enjoy 'em folks!
It's a critical point for the 49ers and Aubrayo Franklin - we'll know very soon whether or not the team will be extending him, or if he'll be playing on the franchise tag. (CSNBayArea.com)
The NFL is reporting that the 49ers won't be signing him to a long term deal, however. I'm OK with this, so long as he's with the team this coming season. (NFL.com)
Running game revelations. A bit that seems to be inspired by some football outsiders stats, but I have been unable to read it yet. (SFGate.com)
Can stability bring the 49ers to an NFC West crown this coming season? I'm hoping so. (Yahoo.com)
Here's another article about the Youth Camp and some specifics I think, but I can't read it right this second. (49ers.com)
Rival Blog Buzz Revenge Of The Birds takes a look at the best of the NFC West strong safeties, and have a post about the Cardinals signing a draft choice. Field Gulls has a season retrospective on tight end John Carlson. Turf Show Times has a post about players likely to breakout, and Random Ramsdom.
Yesterday On Niners Nation We started with the Golden Nuggets, we had a post about Football Outsider's latest almanac. I'm sorry, but call me a homer all you want, that rating is bull. I had a confidence post on Shawntae Spencer, I had a new post about the Madden 11 ratings for the 49ers, and here's another thing from football outsiders, ranking the teams based on their young talent.
Today On Niners Nation (All times pacific and subject to change)
7:00 AM - Fooch will have a post about the situation regarding Aubrayo Franklin and his contract.
11:00 AM - He'll have another post about 49ers injuries and what to look out for next year in that regard.
3:00 PM - There will be something else, a fanshot I imagine between this and the previous post, but here will be.. something from me.
