Aside from the hurt feelings and general whining in the threads yesterday, it was a great day here at Niners Nation. Of course, I'm saying that only because San Francisco walked away with a win on the road in Seattle, albeit an ugly one. I'm happy with it either way, though. There are plenty of things I wish went differently, but the biggest negative to me is the injuries. The terribly idiotic hit on Kyle Williams and the reckless knee to Delanie Walker - those are things that could and should have been avoided, and they dampen the joy of winning considerably. This is not the time to have the team fall apart. Either way, here's some links, of the quick variety because I'm exhausted. Have a happy holidays, folks. And remember that there's not going to be a ton of posting today at NN. There will be a gamethread later though - you know which one.
