Golden Nuggets: Seahawks at 49ers; Short week offers quick chance at redemption

Jay Drowns

Thursday, October 18, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Good morning everyone. It's Thursday and it's gameday. That's a bit weird to write, but, hey. This is going to be another abbreviated version of the Nuggets, as I haven't been feeling well. The only news is the typical pre-game preview material, written in haste by the poor beat writers on the short week. The players aren't the only ones put out by the Thursday night game.

How does everyone feel going into the game? I'm still pretty bummed after last weekend, but Harbaugh's history of bouncing back from defeats with stellar performances let's me know everything is going to be all right. We do need a win tonight, and a win next week in Arizona and we'll be firmly established in the driver's seat of the new and improved NFC Best.

Since I'm making this a 'quickie', you know the drill. Any exciting, particularly interesting news that gets posted in the morning you can add into the comments below. It'll save me from getting fired. Thanks guys!
