Golden Nuggets: 49ers-Falcons previews; Jim Harbaugh, Colin Kaepernick on SI cover

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sport

Wednesday, Wednesday 16, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

You guys in the backseat better buckle your seat belts, because this edition of the Nuggets is going to be fast. Vroom.... FAST!!!!! There are so many links that I just want to get them all to you, cause I care. There's plenty of links about the upcoming 49ers-Falcons game. There's tons of love for Colin Kaepernick and Jim Harbaugh and Greg Roman, even.

To the links....Enjoy them.

49ers at Falcons

A piece with a bit of the history between the two teams. The Falcons were never really that good, although there's some good anecdotes about Jamal Anderson talking in the third person. Only D-bags talk in the third person, though my sister used to do it when she was 2-years old. It's cute then. | Hating the Falcons used to be a lot easier (BASG)

It seems like most of the pundits are picking the 49ers to win this NFCCG. Oddly, by gametime last week, a good majority had us losing to the Packers. The key thing to take away from this is that it's obvious that pundits like road teams. | Early conference championship look: Kaepernick gives 49ers edge in NFC (Yahoo!)
