Good morning everyone. The San Francisco 49ers are one of four teams serving their bye in Week 11, which means they won’t be in action on Sunday. They will next play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12, and everyone here wants to know if Jimmy Garoppolo will play in that game.
Until then, though, maybe enjoy some stress-free football? The New York Giants and Cleveland Browns are the 49ers’ primary competition for the top pick so I’ll be watching their games, as bad as they will probably be. Both have tough competition on Sunday.
As far as the NFC West is concerned, the Seahawks don’t play until Monday Night Football while the Los Angeles Rams will play the Minnesota Vikins and Arizona Cardinals will play the Houston Texans.
I’m not interested in any of those games, personally, and I’ve got a concert to go to tonight so ... let’s get right to your links, yeah?
