Monday, October 15, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.
I didn't see that one coming. If you would have told me we were going to lose, I could have accepted it. But to have a game where we do absolutely nothing right, at home, against a team that hasn't been playing their best ball (I don't care if they're the defending champs) is utterly disappointing. How do you even begin to criticize after this one. There's too much blame to go around, so I'll start with the bright spot. Mario Manningham looked good. Now for the bad. Alex Smith threw three interceptions, we didn't get a sack, yet gave up six. Ahmad Bradshaw gouged us on the ground for 116 yards and a touchdown. David Akers missed two field goals. We came out flatter than we did against the Vikings, and that was F-L-A-T. Another game like this and you question whether or not the team can compete at the elite level, because you can't come out flat in the playoffs. Now we get a game against each of our division foes and get a chance to take a tight grip on the NFC West. We have to win the division because we've already lost to two potential wild card competitors. Let's see how we respond.
There's tons of links, guys, and I'm feeling a bit under the weather so I'm giving you the links, and nothing but the links. It's all depressing anyhow. The important thing to monitor coming out of the game is Joe Staley's health. He suffered a concussion and, with the Seahawks coming in for a Thursday night game, doesn't seem likely to play in week 7. Hope he gets well soon, the O-line was atrocious today. Links....
