Golden Nuggets: In agreement with Vic Fangio on quarterbacks and fines

Thearon W. Henderson

Friday, October 4th, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the Internet.

Who would have thought that a prime time matchup between the Cleveland Browns and the Buffalo Bills would have been ... entertaining? I was certainly pleasantly surprised and I have to say, I think both teams have a really up-and-coming defense. I like a lot of players on Cleveland's defense ... if they feel like trading anymore good again then I wouldn't mind grabbing a guy or two ...

Anyway, we've got the Houston Texans this weekend. For some reason, I'm very confident that the 49ers will win. I'm not sure if it's because Matt Schaub enjoys throwing interceptions for touchdowns or if it's just because I think the 49ers match up well. Needless to say, the most important thing is for them to hit the ground running and get to an early lead ... though the Texans obviously haven't been great at holding leads.

Oh and in regards to the title: I totally agree with Vic Fangio. Well ... not totally. I don't think there should be fines, but quarterbacks who irresponsibly throw those kinds of passes should be punished by their teams.

Onto the links for the day.
