I apologize for the lateness of today's Nuggets, but I've been dealing with some ISP issues the past 2 days. Anyway, hopefully the 49ers will not have as much trouble dealing with the Bucs on Sunday. It's good to hear that the team leaders are keeping everyone laser-focused on the playoff push. This is no time to have a letdown or lose a trap game. If the 49ers handle their business properly, they have enough talent to win handily over Tampa Bay. Also I just have a feeling that we could see a strong Michael Crabtree performance today. He wants the ball and he's due for a breakout game. So let's go in there, win convincingly and close the season strong.
