Golden Nuggets: On Alex Smith and Jay Cutler and concussions

Brian Bahr

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Hey, everyone. Mom's away, Dad's cooking.....5 minute Nuggets! Yum!!!!. Sorry guys. I've got to be as quick as I ever have been. Me and my wife are in the process of trying to buy a house. We happen to be looking on the other side of town which, in Melbourne terms, means hours away. Had to go across town after work, and needless to say, I've got about 30 minutes to get this death star fully operational. ARGHHH!!!!!!

To the comment-free links. There wasn't a ton of them out there and I'm weening them down to the essential. How about you guys do the commenting below?

So, as a topic of do we feel about Colin Kaepernick starting against the Bears, one of the most turnover-happy defenses in recent memory? What about the 49ers' defense against Jason Cambell? This game may hinge on doctor's diagnoses. Hmmm....
