Rams: Probable - WR Derek Stanley, DT Adam Carriker, QB Trent Green, RB Antonio Pittman; Questionable - OT John Greco; Out - LB Chris Draft, CB Tye Hill, RB Steven Jackson, DE Eric Moore

I'm opening this up early for use as a morning game thread, so go to town with that. Make sure and check out today's Golden Nuggets and and Florida Danny's statistical preview comparing Steven Jackson and Frank Gore.

As for our 49ers, it's hard to know what to take from the game today. They're favored by a touchdown, so a win should be expected. Of course, given the performances over the last two months, a win is something none of us have always come to expect. So what we're looking for here is a quality performance against what most would consider an inferior opponent. Fewer turnovers on offense, more pressure on defense and a solid performance all around. I'm not sure yet if you want to hold your breath for that. Here's hoping for something solid.
