Golden Nuggets: Monday Night Football, 49ers at Cardinals

Christian Petersen

Monday, October 29, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

There's not a lot of news that pertains to the 49ers up yet. I'll take this time to congratulate the Giants for being the 2012 World Series Champions! Couldn't be happier. I was at work unfortunately but I stopped working for about 5 minutes while I let the smile subside. As a youngster, I could never even envision the day when we'd have two titles in three years. Amazing!

As for the Niners, well, as you know, we've got the game against the Cardinals coming up tonight on Monday Night Football and I've got a good feeling about it. Dare I say I think it may be a shutout. The Cardinals D will probably give the 49ers more fits than we're all willing to deal with, but their offense, especially without Kolb and their top-two running backs looks absolutely toothless. If we play mistake free on offense and special teams, I think we mop the floor with them. That's a big 'if' if the last two games are to be any indication.

As for the links, not much to speak of. Most of it is of the garden variety preview. I say this every game day, but most of the preview links will come up Monday morning after this goes live, so add some into the comments if you think they're worthwhile. Thanks for looking out for us.
