Golden Nuggets: Game day, Eddie DeBartolo and roster cuts

49ers links for Thursday, September 3, 2015.

Good morning! It's game day as the San Francisco 49ers wrap up their 2015 preseason schedule. GoldBl00ded is headed back to finish up graduate school and will be unable to do the Thursday and Saturday Nuggets moving forward. We'll have someone to replace him sometime soon.

In the meantime, congrats to Eddie DeBartolo on getting named a finalist for the Hall of Fame as a contributor. He immediately moves to the final vote shortly before the Super Bowl. If he gets 80 percent of the vote, he will be enshrined next August. He is a controversial figure given his previous suspension, but time can heal wounds, and I think it might be enough for him.

We've got some roster projections as well. The 49ers make final cuts between now and Saturday afternoon. That will be followed by the assembling of the practice squad, so a few of this weekend's cuts will probably not be gone long.
