Well folks, it's gameday. I really don't have much to say at this point ... the 49ers are leading the NFC West, and it really would be nice if they were still leading it tomorrow. Obviously we're not in anything remotely like a must-win situation, but I still have that old "battlefield" mentality about myself right now. We need to see a lot from this team, though I'll take a couple things: strong offensive line play and a defense that's supposed to be a strength staying the course and - you guessed it - looking like a strength. I'm not sure if that's too much to ask or not ... the fact that I dislike Michael Vick immensely also plays a part in my desire to see the 49ers win. There's not a lot of links today, there never are on gameday. Enjoy.
