Against all odds, I was able to watch most of the 49ers game last night ... definitely needed that. For the first time in a long time, I really don't have much to complain about, other than the idiotic fans who booed Kyle Williams when he went back to return a punt. Yep. Idiotic. Anyway, in a big hurry and all so GO NINERS!! and lets get onto your links. (Also please be OK Aldon Smith, thanks). Oh, and I'm on the east coast, so all of the main recaps and the like aren't up and it's 2 in the morning here. If ya'll can, please post any relevant links you find in the comments. I'm not going to link in-game impressions from the beat writers because recaps are better.
