Morning folks, morning. Week one of the NFL preseason is officially in the books ... hope ya'll enjoyed watching the Raiders yesterday. I know they're not well-liked around here at all, but covering them for SB Nation Bay Area has made me somewhat interested in their performance week-in and week-out. But don't get me wrong - I love a good ol' Raiders fail. Nothing like a gut-wrenching mistake to have a hearty laugh at in the name of the 49ers. Anyway, quick links today, but let me just say that if the 49ers play Aldon Smith again this preseason ... they're dumb. Just sill and dumb. Guy has got nothing to prove in this sense. Onto the links.
