Golden Nuggets: At least it’s the Cowboys

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Thursday, September 29th, 2016

As annoyed as I am by what I’ve seen on the field last week with the 49ers, I still have to say this team is better than the Jim Tomsula team. At least this one has some sort of identity, it doesn’t have a defense, or a running game, but it does have some sort of identity. Despite the good defenses and the mishaps, I still place a lot of the blame of this team’s woes on general manager Trent Baalke. I just don’t understand some of his picks the last few drafts. I’m aware hindsight is 20/20, but when this team needs help RIGHT NOW, how do you pass on someone like Dak Prescott for another ACL player? I mean, why?

Regardless, we have the Dallas Cowboys, where Prescott ended up. The good news is, this is week 4 and it usually takes 4-6 weeks before decent quarterbacks touted as the next Tom Brady are brought back to earth, only to be benched and never seen again. Given the 49ers defense, I’m not sure if they will begin to expose the rookie, but given that it’s the Cowboys, I will laugh hysterically if their shiny new QB crashes and burns against a defense that’s given up almost 1,000 yards so far.

But forget all of that. I just want to beat the Cowboys because it’s the Cowboys. Any self respecting 49er fan will be happy to beat up on the Cowboys.
