Friday, December 6th, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.
Good morning ladies and gents. We've got the Seattle Seahawks this week, and hopefully you tuned in two the train wreck on Thursday Night Football to make yourself feel better. I have no idea what exactly happened to the Houston Texans, but watching them look pitiful against the Jacksonville Jaguars was somewhat hilarious.
Anyway ... I'm not sure how I feel about the matchup this weekend. You'll notice I didn't get in on the troll fanpost too much because honestly ... I don't really hate the Seahawks all that much. This has never been a huge rivalry and i don't see any reason it should be right now. They just don't register as an important team to me in the grand scheme of things.
A really good team, to be sure. But rivalries are built over decades, not two seasons of "rival" quarterbacks. But that's just me. At least I've got hating Pete Carroll to lean back on.
