Golden Nuggets: Restricting Your Poll Options and Silencing Your Voice One Post at a Time

So for some reason, I forgot to add 'F' into the poll option on the Arizona Cardinals draft grades post yesterday, but I really don't see a way anybody can consider it an 'F' anyway, so I guess it doesn't really matter. In other news, I've decided to change my name on Niners Nation to "James Brady," with "Ninjames" in parenthesis. You guys can still call me Ninjames, in fact, that's what I prefer when it all comes down to it, but you know how it is ... or maybe you don't. Either way, that's how it is! Also, I'd like to get some input from you folks regarding the start time. Would anybody like the Nuggets to go up at 2:00 a.m. pacific instead of the normal start time of 3:00 a.m.? Just checking what you guys think. Anyway, on to the links, folks.

I stopped following the NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2011 list because it lists running back Frank Gore at number 94. Apparently, Gore is only a hair better than Darren McFadden, which really ... it's insulting, despite McFadden's emergence last season. (49ers.com)

Maiocco took a crack at what the depth chart looks like for the 49ers. I think he makes good points when he lists Johnson ahead of Williams ... I would not be adverse to Ted Ginn Jr. being out of the receiver rotation entirely, honestly. Unless Harbaugh can actually use him correctly, I have no idea why Ginn was looked too in so many short yardage situations on third down. I know I'm a big Dominique Zeigler mark, but if there's ever a situation to use him ... well, that's the one. (CSNBayArea.com)

Trent Dilfer is essentially in agreement with me on all fronts (because he obviously reads Niners Nation before going on air), in that the Seahawks made a lot of mistakes in their draft, while the 49ers only got better. (PressDemocrat.com)

The "official" times and dates for the 49ers preseason games were announced by the team recently. Forgive me if I'm pessimistic, but I'm still in the camp that believes football will take a hit this year. (49ers.com)

It looks like the team may be interested in signing David Mims, a 6'8'' offensive lineman. Woah. Alex Boone, eat your heart out.  (PressDemocrat.com)

Apparently, the 49ers were in on multiple trade attempts in regards to landing Colin Kaepernick. (Yahoo.com)

Where do all of these players fit in next season? I personally think Aldon Smith will be able to start from day one, but that's early speculation, and I fully admit I might just be being hopeful. (SacBee.com)

Here's Maiocco's latest mailbag post. (CSNBayArea.com)
