The San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams are set to renew hostilities at Candlestick Park in just a couple of hours. Our 49ers are highly favored, as they should be, and they can wrap up the NFC West division with a win or even a tie today. Call me optimistic about a win. Oh, and that's right, I'll be taking care of you folks today from the press box at Candlestick while Fooch lounges about in the crowd somewhere. I'll be gentle (at first).
Of note for the 49ers is the fact that fullback Bruce Miller is active, but that was expected. He was cleared to play very early in the week and was good to go, but with a head injury, there was always a chance that the team held him out. Receiver Braylon Edwards is also out, which in my mind, is a good thing. He was a liability out there and needs to be 100% for the playoffs. Sam Bradford will be inactive for the Rams, and A.J. Feely will get the start.
