Good morning and happy Thanksgiving everyone! The Pat-Signal got flashed last night, so I'll be starting your feasting frenzy of a day with some 49ers news links. I hope all of you have a great holiday planned. For those of you working, I hope you enjoy yourselves and it's not too stressful. I used to work on Thanksgivings, I know the feeling. I got a smoked turkey going on right now and a stock I'll have to prepare shortly for my gravy, but El Pato's Thanksgiving feast is going to be absolutely epic. With two pies, 6 lbs of potatos, a 15 lb bird, a bunch of stuffing, and two people, I will be grubbing for a few days.
Let's get to the links:
