Golden Nuggets: Release the Schedule

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers regular season schedule will finally be released tomorrow. We already know who the opponents are going to be. The question is who is going to be the first team to play the Niners at the brand new Levi's Stadium. How does the NFL not make this a game versus that loud team in the Northwest? Only makes perfect sense, right? Those 2 games versus the Seahawks will be good matchups, but what other good games could there be?

A good matchup, but one Niner fans may find depressing is the game against the Denver Broncos. It could almost be called the Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda game. This is the game we could have had in the Super Bowl. Now we can find out what it could have been like playing against Peyton Manning. Another interesting matchup is going to be Chip Kelly's Eagles. How will that offense fare against a tough defense like the Niners? The Niners also play an 'away' game at Oakland. What are the chances Schaub does not throw Tramaine Brock's way this time? I say good. Two intriguing matchups could be the Bears and Cowboys games. These teams are led by quarterbacks that Colin wants to be paid in line with. It may give him extra motivation to show his worth. Lastly, the games versus the Cardinals are going to be great games. The Cardinals are a tough team in almost the same mold as the Niners and Seahawks.

Let's begin this season. And yes Vernon, anything short of a Super Bowl victory this year is unacceptable!
