Every Sunday is big for the 49ers, but most people recognize this as the biggest game of the year, and the biggest game in recent history for the 49ers. A lot of today's clips provide some last-minute previews of the game. Don't forget to swing back to the site once the open thread comes up at 9:30.
On an unrelated note, yesterday was a big day for Niners Nation. We had our two millionth visit to the site. An interesting note: It took 27 months to reach the first million visitors. It took six months to reach the second million. Not too shabby I'd say. Thanks to everyone here for continuing to come back to the site.
