Good morning everyone. Something really surprising happened yesterday, and even though it really didn't have much to do with the 49ers I want to take a  moment to talk about it. The Seattle Seahawks traded Percy Harvin to the New York Jets for a conditional draft pick (2nd - 4th round). It's nice to know that one of the Seahawks more talented players won't be on the team for either game against them, but the situation was just weird all around. There are reports that he had anger issues with the team and had specific incidents with two players including Russell Wilson. Wows all around on that story.

As for the game sunday night, I mentioned it on Thursday, but this is the first game where I am not predicting the 49ers to win. Peyton Manning is tough, he has a ton of weapons, and we are missing several key players from our A team. Patrick Willis and Mike Iupati have already been ruled out, but on the bright side, Tramaine Brock might be available for the first time in weeks. I hate myself for doing it, but I predict the 49ers lose to the Broncos 23-24, but nothing would make me happier than to be dead wrong. Okay, let's get to those links.
