Golden Nuggets: 49ers alone in first place

Monday, October 22, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Tap. Tap. Tap. Shuffle. That's me tapping my finger and shuffling papers about trying to find something to do. There's nothing to write about. All of the writers took the day off, as they should after having to do double time during the week last week. Just a couple of articles, nothing of major note. Usually Monday morning Nuggets make my head spin, trying to sift through the tonnage. There's one article from every writer we cover on every topic. Hard to keep up with. Not today...tap...tap...tap.

So what can we talk about? How about the state of the league? I mean, the state of the standings and the state of the teams we thought we'd be in competition with. What's the biggest surprise of the year? The NFC West ranking among the top divisions (not sure how we set after the Sunday 0-for) has to be one of them. I do think that the NFC North and the AFC North will surpass us before too long. RGIII looks damn good. And how about the teams that've bottomed out? Who's the biggest disappointment? Kansas City, Carolina, Detroit (soon to fall to 2-4)? Biggest surprise? Did you see Chris Johnson returning from the dead? You guys discuss. Otherwise this is pretty much a dead zone. You don't want me to look boring in front of Fooch and James do you? Get something going, please!
