Golden Nuggets: Bring on the Packers!

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday, January 5th, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

I don't really know what happened in the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Indianapolis Colts game ... I turned on the game at 4th and 11 and saw Dwayne Bowe almost make a really awesome catch. He couldn't get both feet in bounds though, and the Alex Smith dream came to an end. Honestly, I knew Smith would be good in Kansas City, but I didn't expect anything like we saw this year. Bravo to them -- seriously.

Anyway, the New Orleans Saints bested the Philadelphia Eagles, which is great because that means our San Francisco 49ers won't have to travel to take on the Seattle Seahawks. Unfortunately, I kind of fear the Carolina Panthers more at this point but that's probably my personal hangup. Anyway, today the 49ers play the Green Bay Packers ... and I'm pretty indifferent.

In other words, the Packers don't scare me. Onto the links!
