Golden Nuggets: Well it's far from fine...

Morning everyone. I don't know how many links I've got for you today, but I'm kind of in a hurry. I've got something about LB Ahmad Brooks, which surprises me because I figured nobody knows he exists. I think I like the potential of Diyral Briggs a lot more than Brooks, but I would like to see him get his chance (again) at rushing the passer. I want to see him as close to a starting role as the team can get him, and if that fails I want to see Briggs activated. Not that I think Briggs is the next best thing ever, but it can never hurt to try out somebody untested. Anyway, beyond that I'm not sure what I have for you today, but I'll get to posting them up. Enjoy, NN.

Here's the bit about Ahmad Brooks, who might be/is getting his chance at pass rusher. (

HB Frank Gore isn't upset with the change in offensive philosophy. He is possibly giving up some carries. Actually, not possibly. He definitely is. He says the offense is fine. (

Should the 49ers trade Gore? No, not under any circumstances. But Mike Sando over at ESPN has some interesting quotes from Steve Young. Remember him? I've heard Young referred to as one of the most intelligent people in football these days so... (

Is anybody else (there better be) impressed with how TE Vernon Davis is emerging as a playmaker? Seriously, I absolutely wanted Davis gone last season. Call me confused. (

Gore should still remain a key in the 49ers offense. I hope he does, I really like the guy. (

This is probably bad news for the 49ers, the Seahawks (rather abysmal) GM Tim Ruskell is expected to resign. No, not re-sign, I'd be celebrating. (

I really hate it when this guy gets talking, I know most of us do, but he he offers some insights on the 49ers new stadium and whether or not prime time games could work in that parking situation. (

Here's a bit of a preview of the game coming up against the Seahawks. (

The 49ers are no longer practicing with pads, or at least they are mixing in more practices without them. (

Commissioner Goodell instituted a new policy on the handling of player concussions. (

Tackling is once again a theme for Mike Singletary. The team tackled much better Sunday against the Jaguars, but it still needs to be better. (

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

Sando takes a look at the injury situation in the NFC West. (

Here's a week 13 playoff forecast, I didn't read this but it mentioned the Niners in the title, so, yeah. (
