Fooch's Note: Slight delay on these, but here are some links for today.
Good morning folks. I notice a lot of people here are really ... nervous about the matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Me, I couldn't be more confident in a 49ers victory, to be honest. I don't think the Seahawks have what it takes to beat the 49ers, and I'm pretty confident Russell Wilson will fall back to Earth.
Of course, I've just provided their fans with a lot of quoting fodder in the even that he torches our defense for 300 yards and three touchdowns, but ya know. Anyway, let's get to your links for the day - quick links as I'm very busy at the moment.
