Golden Nuggets: Singing The 49ers Praises

Good morning everybody. I'm back to help out with the Nuggets. Since my last foray into the Nuggets this past weekend, the 49ers have improved to 8-1 and moved a little bit closer to a potential playoff berth and much more. Their overall playoff odds didn't change, but their odds for securing a first round bye climbed from 80.1% to 90.6%.

As the 49ers continue playing well, the glowing articles continue to come out. It's not exactly surprising, but always entertaining to see. The media is like a huge ship trying to turn around. A few wins aren't necessarily enough to get it completely turned around, but we've had nine weeks for the media to hit the positive notes and now they are overflowing.
