Well look at that folks, we appear to have some pertinent links to sift through for once. I actually hate it when that happens, for the most part. I'm doing stuff, not really around the computer or anything like that, and expecting to get on to do the Nuggets shortly before they are due, and then: bam! Links, links everywhere and I have to rush to get everything done. Don't you all feel sorry for me? Well don't, because I get to force you guys to read my words each and every day. You don't think I'm forcing you? Think again, because you're still reading. Turn away right now, stop reading this sentence, I dare you. You didn't turn away, did you? That's good, because that means you're looking long enough to to and vote for Niners Nation in the best NFL team blog category over at this link right here. Enjoy the links folks, I put them together just for you. Not you, you.
There will be a lot different with the 49ers offense in 2011 in comparison to recent years, but one constant will remain: Frank Gore as the definitive workhorse. This is a good thing, and he should be utilized well under Greg Roman. (PressDemocrat.com)
Jim Harbaugh also put some more praise on quarterback Alex Smith yesterday. I still really don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. (MercuryNews.com)
Here's a good recap of what went down at the fan conference call with Jim Harbaugh and Trent Baalke. (Examiner.com)
Maiocco had a recap of the call as well, a bit more in depth if you'd like. (CSNBayArea.com)
Here's a list of the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine invitees. I can't help but admit, I love the combine. I will be watching intently if I'm not too busy. (CSNBayArea.com)
And here is Barrows' latest Q&A, generally a good read. (SacBee.com)
Michael Vick just got the franchise tag, does that mean Kevin Kolb will be available for the 49ers? I sincerely hope not, because I don't think much of Kolb. (NBCBayArea.com)
