Golden Nuggets: Steelers will be tough opponent for 49ers

Friday, September 18th, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone, hopefully by now you've woken up from your drunken celebration after the San Francisco 49ers beat the Minnesota Vikings. I personally had two days off, which was wonderful and I used it to do basically nothing related to football. After the offseason, after all the doom and gloom, and after trying so hard to get tangible, actual thoughts about what the team might look like this season, it was nice to see I wasn't far off in my predictions.

Last night was a pretty entertaining AFC West matchup between Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos and our favorite, Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs. Both Manning and Smith struggled in the game, with Smith looking particularly poor while being constantly chased by Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware. I had a pretty good time watching it, but the next time I watch real football, the 49ers will be playing a tough, tough game against the Steelers.

We're gonna jump right into your links. Remember, links aren't opening in new windows anymore, because people don't like that and upon reflection, we don't either. So wooh! Links! Football! Niners!
