Golden Nuggets: Moving past Culliver drama

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Friday, February 1st, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web,

Given how close we are now to the Super Bowl, I don't think I'll be getting much sleep between now and then. I've totally switched off "writer mode" and am now in full-blown fan mode. I have no analysis to add to this matchup that already hasn't been given. The 49ers are really good. The Ravens are also really good. They're going to play football and one of them will win the Super Bowl. It's going to be rad.

I should make a career outta this or something. Anyway, I'm hoping we can all move on from the Chris Culliver stuff. He's an idiot - a big idiot - but it is what it is. Nothing we can do about it now. Let's go and win a Super Bowl, shall we? Anyway, let's get to the links ... I'm in a rush, so please post anything and everything that I missed in the comments.
