Golden Nuggets: Go 49ers!

Saturday, January 12th, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Good morning ladies and gents. It's gameday, and if I had long fingernails, I'd be biting them right now. I remain totally convinced that the San Francisco 49ers have everything they need to put the Green Bay Packers on a plane back home without a ticket to the NFC Championship, but come on ... it's the playoffs. I'm scared.

If you're not scared, there's something wrong with you, and I want whatever it is you took to make something wrong with you. Clay Matthews will likely beat Joe Staley again, Aaron Rodgers will probably play great, David Akers will miss a field goal and Justin Smith will be getting one-armed sacks all day, and I still expect San Francisco to win.

Nothing else to say. No mercy. Go 49ers.
