Golden Nuggets: Smith Is The Guy, Hope Gore Can Stay Healthy, For His Sake

Morning folks, morning. As it happens, I'm just getting in from an evening of watching the Raiders, I've had a few, and just before drifting to sleep, I remember that I had to get on here and get you some Nuggets. Now, I'd hate to leave you without them, but I'd much hate to not go to sleep in the next, oh, ten minutes - so I've come up with the compromise of giving you quick links again so I can get some shuteye. Anybody care?

Didn't think so. Looks like there's not much new since the 49ers beat the Chargers and Jim Harbaugh gave Alex Smith the starting nod, but it looks like we've got some grades and roster projections - which are some of my favorite things at this point. So let's get to those links and be on with it, yeah?
