Golden Nuggets: Football players win for Coach they love

Monday, October 6, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Now that were past the first quarter of the season, we have enough games for me to accept some things that will probably continue through the rest of the year:

  • What you saw today is typical 49ers winning football
  • The 49ers are just loaded with "football players" who love to play for Jim Harbaugh
  • Frank Gore is still the heart and soul of the offense, but Carlos Hyde's success will keep Frank fresh for the playoffs
  • Colin Kaepernick doesn't have to be spectacular, but just get in enough big plays to win
  • The frequency of big plays will increase as Kap gets more comfortable with each receiver
  • The WR crew is talented enough that any single one of them can be the game changer
  • The defense is still solid and will continue to get better as key players return
  • The Harbaugh Attackers Media Mafia (H.A.M.M.s) will not stop rearing their ugly head
  • The Nuggets are still about the links and so here they are, a whole lot of them...
