Golden Nuggets: Marvel Smith and Michael Crabtree dominate the headlines

We arrive at our third game day of the year just as 49ers news is starting to bubble over.  While Michael Crabtree remains in limbo, the big news yesterday was the somewhat unexpected (although in the end maybe not so shocking) alleged retirement of Marvel Smith.  I say alleged because as of me writing this, Smith has not confirmed one way or the other.  I'll have some thoughts on this later in the day.  We'll have a brief Q&A with our Cowboys blog, Blogging the Boys at 8am, followed by some Marvel Smith thoughts around lunchtime (as always, all times pacific).  In the meantime, on to the links...
