Golden Nuggets: Oh no, not Sims!

Morning everyone. So I've finally got my new laptop, the one I really wanted and man, I've been eager to do the Nuggets like all day. I just like using this thing, seriously. To continue to stray for a moment, if any of you have Vista and you are disappointed, I implore you, upgrade to Windows 7 and you will NOT be disappointed. But back to football, there's not much going on in 49erland today. As far as I can tell there's no personnel changes, no new injury updates--mostly just previews and looks ahead at the game against Tennessee. I experienced my first in-person loss when the 49ers played the Falcons and I can say it felt about a million times worse than it did when I watched a loss on TV. So if we lose to the Titans you're going to see a very angry Nuggets writer come Monday morning. On to the links!

This is the most interesting matchup to me in Sunday's game: the 49ers second ranked rushing defense versus the Titans second ranked rushing offense. I feel like the 49ers can contain Chris Johnson, but I'm sure I'll flip-flop on that prediction a few times. (

So is QB Alex Smith gearing up for a huge fantasy performance? I'm not going to be picking him up, but some of you with a less than stellar quarterbacks may want to consider him. (

Run for the hills Niner fans, Barry Sims looks to be in the starting lineup for some time. (

NT Aubrayo Franklin is getting some recognition--and it's well deserved. At the beginning of this season I mentioned Franklin as a player the 49ers sorely needed to replace. I believe I said "just good enough to keep around." Now I'm hoping he stays for a long time. (

Here's yesterday's edition of Singletary's Notebook. (

The 49ers offense is looking to get on track. Not back on track, just on track. (

A summary of yesterday's goings on. Most notably (to me) is Ricky Jean-Francois replacing Demetric Evans in the lineup. I've been very much opposed to Evans being on the team, he brings absolutely nothing to this team. Maybe the fact that he's a veteran makes him more important than RJF but I feel the experience and maturity of playing games will help the young guy more than Evans will help the team right now. (

CB Tarell Brown is looking to do some hitting of Vince Young--something he never got to do for three years in college as they were on the same team. (

Here's another summary of things from yesterday, this one from Maiocco. (

The 49ers signed a tackle to their practice squad, once again filling it up. (

Here's a preview of the game on Sunday. (

Be sure to check out the game center for a preview and stats. (

Alex Smith isn't the only quarterback looking to redeem himself on Sunday--another early pick in Vince Young has come back from the bench recently. (

Titans coach Jeff Fisher says the 49ers formula is working and they shouldn't change it. (

The team can sell the naming rights to Candlestick Park yet again. Thrilling. (

Ratto has some thoughts on Singletary's first year as a head coach. (

As it stands (is likely to stand) the game on Sunday will be decided on the ground. (
