Woah, was it really just Thursday? I totally missed Andrew Luck destroy the Jacksonville Jaguars, on account of a recent Xbox 360 game ... I'm sure many of you know what it is. Anyway, yeah, so the San Francisco 49ers are going to play on Sunday, in their first game in like two years or something. It feels like it's been forever since I've seen Alex Smith drop back to pass (before it gets batted down at the line of scrimmage).
I'm fully expecting a dominant win on Sunday. The St. Louis Rams just ... aren't a good football team, but then again, this 49ers team has shown some key weaknesses and an inability to make adjustments when behind. If Sam Bradford puts on his big boy pants, we could be in for a long day. Let's dive right into your links.
