So the day has come. It's finally here. We get some actual, factual San Francisco 49ers football, and there's actually a few good things to pay attention to, for once. (Unfortunately for me, I won't be able to watch, as DirecTV wants $500 to set up new service.) I'm particularly excited to see some Colin Kaepernick and what he can do, lest we forget that Alex Smith is only one season removed from being absolutely terrible. Hopefully we won't have to see any Kaepernick or Josh Johnson this season, but it's going to fun to see what he can do in the preseason. Also, the preseason debut of Michael Crabtree!? Mind-blowing. Onto the links.
