Well, Sunday was less than fun! It's good to have a 49ers game, but when the team stinks up the joint like they did yesterday, it's easy to be a little discouraged. There were positives to be taken from the game, and I'll have more on that later this morning in our weekly winners and losers post.

Some technical issues delayed the Nuggets, so this is not going to be every last 49ers link on the Web. Now that we're getting into the busy season, please use to comments to provide any 49ers/NFL links you find around the Internet. This is meant as a "link dump" so anything you find is welcome. On to the links!
