Golden Nuggets: Time to snap that losing skid

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Friday, November 22nd, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Hopefully, you'll all moved on from the Ahmad Brooks controversy -- or at the very least, you're putting aside arms to fight the battle another day -- and now you're looking forward to the Monday Night Football game against the Washington Redskins. Personally, I'm excited for the game, for the simple fact that I think the San Francisco 49ers absolutely need to win and will be out for blood.

The Redskins are not a very good team. There aren't many players on that roster that particularly scare me, but I've been alternating between cockiness and outright pessimism all season, so what do I know? At any rate, there's some cool stuff to talk about, like Marcus Lattimore practicing for the first time and Michael Crabtree getting closer to playing. So let's just get to your links for the day, shall we?
