Golden Nuggets: Full confidence in Ricky Jean Francois, as usual

Friday, September 28, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the web.

So hey, this is my first Golden Nuggets since the launch of United, so I'm just gonna get through it with click links and the like. As you know, I run SB Nation Bay Area, so most of my time since the launch has been devoted to angrily yelling at my staff to get things right, angrily yelling at the news desk to get things right, angrily Tweeting to the Giants to get things right (unrelated) and generally doing everything I can to avoid needless downtime due to things like sleep and personal hygiene.

I came down to earth a little when our San Francisco 49ers lost to the Minnesota Vikings. I thought it was one of the poorest showings we could have possibly had, but I've moved on. Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets are not an intimidating team by any stretch of the imagination. If the 49ers come in prepared and all of that jazz, then they should be just gravy, ya dig? Let's get to your links for the day, shall we?
