Last week, I had something not entirely unlike a a battle speech in the Golden Nuggets, prior to the game against the New Orleans Saints. There won't be anything like that today ... no theatrics, nothing. We're a team of destiny, and none of you need to get pumped up for this game. More than that, our San Francisco 49ers beat the New York Giants once before - this is business as usual, nothing more. I'm just going to get to your gameday links, and then get to sleep, with hopes of waking up just before kickoff. Here's the links, and as always, GO NINERS!
