Golden Nuggets: Bring on the Bears!

Sunday, December 6th, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Today, the San Francisco 49ers will play the Chicago Bears, in a game that is almost entirely meaningless. The Bears don't represent a good benchmark for success or anything along those lines, and the 49ers aren't exactly doing themselves any favors by winning football games.

What I'm really worried about, though, is Blaine Gabbert putting up big numbers against bad teams and convincing the 49ers that he may actually have potential. It would be a horrible, awful guarantee of another terrible year if that happens. No, he's not going to suddenly develop into a franchise quarterback. No, he's not going to be anything other than the guy he was with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

And that's fine. The quarterback of the future isn't currently on the roster. I'm not going to root for Gabbert to fail, but I have no faith that this team is managed well enough to see that he's not the answer. This organization is a comedy of errors at this point and I can't even muster the slightest bit of excitement for a game against the Bears, a team I do not like.

Go Niners, I guess.
