Golden Nuggets: Getting Excited Again

Why do I do this to myself? I took my walk to 7-11, which is right around the corner, and there was the guy behind the counter who relied on me for 49ers news every day throughout the offseason. I hadn't been in there since the 49ers week one loss to the 49ers, I couldn't face him after building his hopes up as much as I did. But tonight I went in there, I bought my vitamin water and I told him that the 49ers are winning tomorrow. He looked at me, confused, hurt, unsure of whether or not to trust me. I'm unsure of whether or not he should trust me. I've bee wrong five times this season when it comes to wins and losses, so as far as going and predicting it on here, for you guys, I'm going to sit this one out. It's bad mojo when I declare things in the Nuggets. I think the exact opposite always happens, so that being said, Moran Norris will not score a touchdown and will not make any key blocks in this game. Let's hope this works. Go Niners! (and also Sharks and Giants, who are playing today)

Maiocco has some matchups to watch for during Sunday's game. I like the LaBoy matchup, personally. I think we can get some sacks on this game. (

Yeah, this deserves to be before the jump: Brian Jennings on KNBR. Every time he's on, I listen and love it. Dude is hilarious. (

Joe Namath is advocating Alex Smith, which I guess is pretty cool. (

Michael Crabtree being fined for that hit during last Sunday's game is an absolute travesty. Boo. (

Sando is on the same page as I am in that regard. What are they thinking? (

As he's been doing recently, Sam Lam had a Q&A with the Raiders Examiner, and I've always found them to be a decent read, so go check it out. (

I hate our starting quarterback. I hate Alex Smith with a fiery, burning passion. I don't want him benched, though. I hate him because I don't know if I should or shouldn't hate him. He's so good ... and then so bad ... and then just OK. I'm not sure what to make of it. (

Hopefully Delanie Walker can get healthy. He's out for tomorrow's game, but with any luck he'll be back soon. We need him. (

I think Crabtree is due for a big game against the Raiders. Yeah, a week out from his big game against the Eagles, I think he's due for another one, to improve the Smith-Crabtree connection. (

Is Frank Gore due for a rebound game? Gee, that would be rather nice, wouldn't  you agree? (

Crabtree licking his chops over playing Oakland. Show them who the better receiver is, Crabtree. (
