Golden Nuggets: Eddie DeBartolo makes Hall of Fame; there's apparently a football game today

New, comments

Sunday, February 7th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning everyone, let me just start off with a little bit of outrage: it's absolutely ridiculous that Terrell Owens didn't make it into the Hall of Fame on his first try. Any single person who says anything about Owens needing to "wait a year" for any reason other than what he was able to do on the field is just completely unreasonable, at that. Owens had the resume to get it, and he should be in. There's no doubt about that.

I talk quite a bit more about that in the first article linked below. Secondly, it's great to see Eddie DeBartolo in the Hall of Fame. He deserves it and it's a travesty he was kept out this long for the silly reasons. But he is now where he deserves to be and we don't have to worry about it anymore.

Eric Berry being named Comeback Player of the Year is totally understandable. I actually think two people deserved it over NaVorro Bowman -- Berry and Carson Palmer. Bowman's year was incredible, but it wasn't a huge blow for him to come out on the losing end of the award.

Onto your links for the day! ... Oh also I guess there's a football game today.
