Golden Nuggets: Next Team Up

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.


It's a Wednesday again so the 49ers will be in practice preparing for what Jim Harbaugh (and the rest of the team) calls "the next team up". This has been the mantra for the past 3 seasons with the team only focusing on whichever game is next on the schedule. The funny thing is it is the Seattle Seahawks the Niners will be facing and they do sport the best record in the NFL so far. In spite of what any 49er says, I would be hard-pressed to believe that the team will not have a little extra motivation going into the game. This has turned into a most bitter rivalry, and after being spanked hard in the last two meetings, you can bet that revenge will be on the menu.
