After a long and interminable offseason, football is back for 49ers fans. It may only be a preseason game, but for those of us that are hardcore fans (meaning most anybody who visits NN), this is huge. Not only is it the first 49ers game, but it is the first chance for many of us to really break down the action and make some more decisive conclusions about the team. We'll see position battles take a step towards resolution. And, of course, we'll see some entertaining, hard-hitting action. However the game plays out, it's great to have football back.
I'm actually down in Las Vegas for the week and so Ninjames will be taking care of getting new threads up during the game, and also providing a recap after the game.
