Golden Nuggets: And So It Ends

Good morning everyone. The season is officially over for the 49ers, and I'm officially drained. Last night, I got into Niners Nation and started talking draft and things of that nature, and was almost disgusted with the discussion. Nothing was particularly offensive or anything, I just ... jumped right into it and was immediately bored. So I'm going to sit this one out for a couple days and just enjoy the peace.

Oh wait, there is no peace. There's going to be a GM and a head coaching hire soon. Probably very soon. I want to stay up all night and read about it, I want to see who keeps their jobs and who gets let go. I'm addicted, and you guys probably are, too. Look for my feature on SB Nation Bay Area today regarding my experience at the game, in the press box. Either way, enjoy the links, folks. I'm insanely tired so the Nuggets won't have much today.

Now that the playoffs are set, the 49ers know where they stand in their division, and who they play next season, and where. (Examiner.com)

Offensive lineman Alex Boone saw some playing time yesterday, and he seemed to play well. NaVorro Bowman started for Patrick Willis, and played well. Tramaine Brock was playing too - and covering Larry Fitzgerald. That didn't go well. (CSNBayArea.com)

Here's a quick look at the first round draft order. I love that the 49ers pick seventh. (SacBee.com)

How about some 49ers grades? Always a good read following a game. (PressDemocrat.com)
