Hate to do this to the Niners Nation but today has to be one of those abbreviated versions. Late getting home from work here and, well, you know the rest. There's so many links that I'm not reviewing any of them. No time! The big news is Brandon Jacobs is purportedly unhappy. Could just be a rumor, but I think all the smart money was on Randy Moss being the first malcontent in the 49ers locker room. We'll have to see where this goes. The good thing is that the FO will not play any of these games, and if any one really wants to complain they know where they'll end up...on the couch in their mansion! The other non-news news item of late is the rivalry between Victor Cruz and Carlos Rogers. There are 500 links to it below if you don't know what it's about. Then we have the usual Thursday morning ton of links getting ready for this weekends rematch with the New York Giants.

Sorry to do this to you guys. It's a BIG, fat link dump!
