Golden Nuggets: The Super Bowl is almost here

Friday, February 5th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone. We're only a couple days from the Super Bowl now, and aside from having to cover it for SB Nation, I'm pretty excited to watch it. The Carolina Panthers are essentially the team that Jim Harbaugh wanted the San Francisco 49ers to be, but even a better version of that. The Denver Broncos are an amazing defense worth watching and I just want to see if they can do what it takes to get to Cam Newton.

I suspect they won't be able to, though. Von Miller will get his plays in, but I think the Panthers are going to be too much in the end.

It's a little upsetting seeing all of the greatness around the 49ers and San Francisco due to the Super Bowl being hosted in Levi's Stadium. Of course, it's great to see Jerry Rice and everyone, but the 49ers did come so close just a couple years ago that it's even more frustrating to be surrounded by that greatness. Oh well, onto the links!
