Good morning everybody. Happy Friday to folks who are just about ready for the week to come to an end. We're a couple days away from the 49ers Week 13 showdown with their long-time rivals, the St. Louis Rams. The Rams are struggling at the moment, but rivalry games can often bring out the best in teams.
Personally, I'd prefer the 49ers just handle their business on Sunday and remove any drama from the occasion. The 49ers have more talent on the field and need to simply handle their business, plain and simple. Although the Rams do not present the same kind of challenge as the Ravens or some of the 49ers other opponents this season, they present a challenge nonetheless and cannot be overlooked.
