Did you guys enjoy a good weekend of NFL football, worry-free and laid back? I most certainly did, but now I'm just sick of waiting. Maybe I'm sick of waiting because I'm very confident in the 49ers to beat the Saints on Saturday. I also feel like I'm one of the few people here who are actually steadfast in the belief that the 49ers will win this one handily. It's silly to think that Drew Brees will suddenly be horrible because the game is at Candlestick, but I just feel as though the 49ers defense will step it up. Full thoughts on that coming a bit later. For now, onto the quick links for the day.
