Golden Nuggets: Almost There...

Good morning everybody. We're only a couple days away from New Years Eve, which means only a few days until the 49ers are back to wrap up their 2011 regular season. This season has sort of flown by, but knowing that it is not over this Sunday makes it feel like we're still right in the thick of the season.

I suppose that since the importance of the games increases exponentially (if not more so) during the playoffs, this stretch should still feel like there is so much football left to be played. Ideally the 49ers can get a victory this Sunday and give us some time to figure out what will be next. I'd like to just be able to focus on potential opponents for a week and get the 49ers rested up. Fingers crossed!
