Golden Nuggets: Mike Pettine didn't see any fight in 49ers

49ers links for Thursday, December 17, 2015.

Good morning! The San Francisco 49ers are midway through their preparations to face the Cincinnati Bengals, and one has to wonder if they will come out with a little more fight this time around. On Wednesday, Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine decided to turn the screws a little bit on the 49ers, questioning the fight in the team.

Is it rock bottom when the Browns are calling you out for not showing much fight? There have been questions about whether or not the 49ers overlooked the Browns, or what exactly, but this says something. I suppose a winning coach of a crappy team might crow a little bit more than others, but the whole thing is pretty disconcerting for this coaching staff. And just further evidence the situation is a complete mess....in case you were somehow unaware of that.

On to the links!
