Golden Nuggets: Liking the matchup

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Tuesday, January 8th, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the web.

Good morning folks. I'm pretty excited that the 49ers will be playing the Packers, mostly because I remain very confident that they can win. I don't think the Packers have the answer to the 49ers right now, and that's without even taking the first game into consideration. Now, I hope the Seahawks can take the Falcons down, so we can get another game at Candlestick Park.

Anyway, we're going to get right to the links today, I'm in something of a hurry. Go Niners!
