Golden Nuggets: Brandon Jacobs isn't fooling me

Friday, October 12, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

So what's up with Chris Johnson? I mean, I know it's not related to the San Francisco 49ers, but at least it's football. I don't really pay attention to the Tennessee Titans - few teams in the league leave less of an impression to me - but when I flipped on the game, I noticed the graphic that noted just how far Johnson's yards per carry has dropped in each of the last three seasons. Now, the guy put up 91 yards last night, that I understand, but man he does not look good carrying the ball. He dances more than Anthony Dixon, sets his feet down and just ... man I'd take Frank Gore over him.

Anyway, so we've got the New York Giants next and, I'll be honest, I can't bring myself to care about the whole "rematch" aspect of it. The way that game went down, I don't think there's any closure needed, and I don't think any retribution is needed. I just think it's another game, this one against a pretty good team. San Francisco needs to go out there and win it. Anyway, quick links today as Fooch and Aaron are both big jerks who wouldn't cover the Nuggets for me. (They're not really jerks, I just asked late). Enjoy, folks.
