I just got back from late night grocery shopping for Thanksgiving and oh man am I glad I did it. Last year I tried to go and the place I went to was out of potatoes and bacon. This year I went to the mega-store in Seattle’s U-district and didn’t have to fight a Thanksgiving crowd at all. Trust me, this is the greatest shopping experience you can ask for: getting the meal ingrediants and not A: fighting others for potatoes and B: actually finding oyster mushrooms.
Alright, that’s it on me. Let’s talk football again, shall we? The San Francisco 49ers are going to be taking on the Green Bay Packers this evening on Sunday Night Football. The last time the 49ers were on Sunday Night Football was the Jim Tomsula era where Eli Manning and the Giants won the game late. It was another Tomsula disappointment.
And now, five years later, the 49ers are back in the Sunday Night Spotlight. And I have news:
The #49ers are optimistic that some of their key offensive weapons will be available. The belief is that WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs), WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder), and TE George Kittle (knee, ankle) will play today vs. the #Packers, sources say, though they may work out pre-game.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 24, 2019
If those three can play, this is not going to be pretty for the Packers. At least is what I would say. If George Kittle can play, the question is how injured is he and how far away from FULL POWWAA is he? That right there is the 49ers three amigos and if they can get going for Garoppolo, I think the 49ers have a really good chance at winning this.
Happy football Sunday everyone! Onto your links!
