Before we get started talking about the San Francisco 49ers and their game against the Arizona Cardinals, I just wanted to get one slightly off-topic thing out of the way: thank the Lord we are not Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans. Granted, having a pirate ship in your stadium is possibly the most badass thing ever, but Greg Schiano just sounds miserable to play for and there is so much going wrong in that organization right now.
Sorry -- had to say that to someone, as I've been writing about this for the past couple weeks on the SB Nation mothership. Just crazy stuff. I would be shocked if Schiano had a job in Tampa Bay next season. Anyway, the 49ers play the Cardinals today and I'm pretty excited. It's going to be a tough matchup, for the simple fact that it's a game between NFC West rivals.
But not one that the 49ers will lose. Colin Kaepernick will have a big game -- write that down. Onto your links for the day.
