Damn, that felt amazing, didn't it? The San Francisco 49ers faced the dominating New Orleans Saints and came out with a win. I was more scared of playing the Saints than I was at the prospect of playing either of the Green Bay Packers or the New York Giants. But you saw the Nuggets yesterday, I was confident. Very confident. Of course, at one point near the end, I thought it was all over, and I said as much. But the 49ers have won four games this year when I've said that and lost none. So clearly it's a fine blend of optimism and pessimism that leads to a 49ers victory, I'd say! Now we get to sit back, and enjoy Sunday's games. That being said, I'm getting onto your quick links for the day. Enjoy.
