Golden Nuggets: 49ers have favorable schedule

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Friday, April 25th, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning ladies and gents. This is my first edition of the Nuggets since the full schedule was released and I have to say: I like it. This is the first time I've genuinely liked the 49ers' schedule in a long, long time. I think there's only one negative quirk with this schedule, and that's a short week with a Seattle Seahawks game ... and then another Seahawks game two weeks later.

That part of the schedule is grueling, but I like the first few weeks and I really like the Week 8 bye. I guess, looking at it, this schedule is tougher based on winning records last year and the like, but it doesn't feel like it compared to last season. Whatever the case, I like it a lot. I talked about it a bit on the Niners Nation Podcast yesterday, so check that out.

Anyway, onto your links for the day.
