Good morning, folks. I'm in a big hurry and the internet is spotty, so very quick links today. The Saints are coming up, and if I'm "arrogant" as one reader suggested, that's fine. The 49ers will win, of that I am confident. Or maybe arrogant. I'm not quite sure, at this point. Either way, it all comes down to our defense, and I wrote about that in particular in the first link, so be sure to read that. There's plenty that the 49er can do on defense to stop Brees and the Saints offense. Only Darren Sproles concerns me, really. Anyway, onto the links for the day. Enjoy.
