Getting on Niners Nation to do the Golden Nuggets for the day ... I certainly did not expect to see the headlines that I did. Gun charges for linebacker Aldon Smith, a lawsuit against Smith and Delanie Walker? This is just madness, folks. Pure madness. Fortunately, the lawsuit seems frivolous (based on my zero knowledge of the law outside of John Grisham novels and two minutes of glancing) and the gun charge may be ignorance ...
Either way, we should focus on the Green Bay Packers. I'm pretty darn nervous right now, but also confident in the San Francisco 49ers to pull off the win. I just want to see who Colin Kaepernick targets and how often, and I also want to see Eric Reid really get some time against a top-flight offense like Green Bay's.
Anyway, onto the links and such.
