Golden Nuggets: Alex Smith and stuff

Friday, Aug. 16, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning folks. So I guess a lot of people are interested in the fact that quarterback Alex Smith will be wearing the wrong shade of red later today, but honestly, I'm not really interested. I might think it a bit more interesting if this weren't a preseason game, but at this point, he's just going to come out, run the ball a few times and possibly throw a little and that will be that.

And that's coming from someone who liked Smith a lot -- not always as a player -- too. Anyway, there's a game today and all that nonsense. I have to get up early so I'm doing the Nuggets a bit early. If I missed anything, let me know and post them in the comments. Enjoy.
