Golden Nuggets: A veritable potpourri of Smith, Manning, Crabtree and so forth

We find ourselves a day away from the showdown with Indianapolis and the links are quite the mish-mash of articles.  Given that many folks focus on college football on Saturday I suppose we get a few more feature articles than normal.  After all the build-up, it's always interesting to hear a bit more about other aspects of the team as opposed to just breaking down matchups.

I find the Tony Pashos articles particularly interesting.  Pashos used to play for the Jaguars and so he has seen plenty of the Colts defensive line.  Although Pashos is on injured reserve, and out for the season, he took the time to put together video of the Colts d-linemen so the 49ers offensive linemen would be better prepared for tomorrow.  I find this all the more interesting given Pashos' 1-year contract.  He might be back in 2010, but there's no reason to think one way or the other.  So it's certainly a plus that he is still finding a way to contribute.
