NInjames is unavailable to do the Nuggets today so I'm handling things. It's a big day for the 49ers and for the fans. The 49ers could end up officially eliminated from postseason contention or they could potentially find themselves a game out of first place. The insanity of the NFC West is truly on display today with some potentially crazy results.
In a relatively un-related note, the Giants-Vikings game has been pushed back to Monday night because of the snow storm up in Minnesota. The Giants charter left NYC three hours early but still had to be diverted to Kansas City because of the snow storm. Apparently the snow has caused some collapsing of the Metrodome roof. The whole thing is fairly crazy. It sounds like the game will still air on FOX, but just in the New York and Minneapolis markets. Crazy stuff.
