Golden Nuggets: Frank Gore fined; 49ers are cool under pressure

USA TODAY Sports

Thursday, January 24, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Another day, another step in the long road to the Super Bowl. Some of the stories that marked the day are up at the top. Other than that, I gotta run. Love to stay and chat, but I got a ton of linking to do...

It sounds more and more like the accusations against Michael Crabtree will lead to nothing. Various witnesses are corroborating his story. | Case against Crabtree is weak (Barrows)

The general response on Twitter was that Frank Gore got fined more for wearing his socks too low than Tom Brady got for kicking and hobbling Ed Reed. Hmm... | NFL socks it to Frank Gore, fines him $10,500 (Barrows)

Eric Branch has a good article about how well the 49ers have kept their composure in the face of any adversity in the postseason. Absolutely nothing has rattled them, and that's a testament to great coaching. | 49ers stay cool under pressure (Branch)

Jim Harbaugh is a tricky one. He's even in the process of tricking his own brother, as he's keeping the 49ers' practice schedule a secret. | Harbaugh does not want brother to know 49ers' work schedule (Maiocco)

NFCCG: 49ers 28, Falcons 24

My piece on the 49ers win over the Falcons. The O-line played well, again. The defense held Atlanta scoreless in the second half. Key defenders made key plays at key moments. | Colin Kapernick beats Atlanta from the pocket (Malone)

BASG takes it one step further, breaking down the bad day had by our safeties. They got beat often and the deep ball seemed to be a problem for them for the first I can remember this season. That's bad news, because Joe Flacco throws the deep ball as well as anyone. | Revisiting a rough day for 49ers' safeties (BASG)
