Friday, January 18, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the web.
Good morning folks. I've been pressed to write 10 to 15 articles on the NFC and AFC Championship games but, at the end of the day, I really don't know which teams I believe are going to win. The Baltimore Ravens could upset the New England Patriots ... such a happening wouldn't surprise me at all.
And of course, I do feel like our San Francisco 49ers will stomp the Atlanta Falcons. I believe San Francisco to be a better balanced team and when it comes to the playoffs, that's what matters. I still couldn't give you a concrete prediction on what's going to happen. I feel like the game could be nuts.
I think I'd rather play the Patriots than the Ravens right now, as odd as that sounds. Anyway, here's the links for the day ya'll. Enjoy.
