Golden Nuggets: The 49ers will (probably) be fine, you guys

New, comments

Sunday, June 14, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone, today I present you with a Golden Nuggets filled with no outright pessimism or doom, but one that accurately informs ya'll of how I feel about the San Francisco 49ers heading into next season. I joke a lot, and occasionally, folks around here don't get that and I constantly have to remind everyone that I honestly feel pretty good about the 49ers going forward. Maybe I can just bookmark this edition of the Nuggets and send them here.

You might have read my post recently entitled "San Francisco 49ers offseason: Where optimism goes to die." Now, that headline sure does make it seem like I'm devoid of all hope, but if you read the whole piece you'll see that I was more conflicted on how to feel. In other words, the phrase "the straw that broke the camel's back" has to apply to optimism over the 49ers at some point, right?

There are users here totally unbowed and there are others crawling along the ground, unable to bear any more after what's happened this offseason. But ultimately I asked myself this question: If I felt good about the 49ers prior to Anthony Davis retiring, can I really change gears due to the departure of a right tackle? I'm still not sure.

But at the end of the day, I still do think the 49ers have a talented-enough team to find success, and I think they have a capable-enough coaching staff, helmed by Jim Tomsula, to get past the crazy upheaval of this offseason. I'm worried about the offense, I'm worried about the cornerback position and I'm even worried about special teams (but that's normal). But I feel good about the 49ers, I think they'll surprise a lot of people.

Then again, I've been wrong before. Onto your links for the day.
