Hate to do it to you guys, the 49er faithful. But this has got to be the quickest Nuggets of my life. And it's going up late. Plenty of things happening here in Oz. I'm in the process of moving house and you guys went and changed the hour on me. The nerve.

All quiet on the NFC Western front. Anquan Boldin arrived at team headquarters and said all the right things. He's excited to get started with his new team. I'm excited to see what another year of growth from Colin Kaepernick, an entire training camp of first team snaps for the young QB, an extra year or development from the younger skill players, plus a new weapon mean for our offense. Now if we can only get the defense to stop starting so slow....
