I had some medical problems that have me more than a little spaced out tonight so I am going to make this short. One of the things I miss on Niners Nation is Mr James Brady’s Doom Index. I asked him if he was going to continue with them a while back and he said he wished he could but sadly he can’t. Perhaps that is a sign of good things to come. Perhaps the 49ers are going to be so unbelievably good that we don’t need any stinking Doom Index?

What should we call the Doom Reports antithesis?

  • The Rainbow Report?
  • Unicorn Weekly?
  • The Homer Times?
  • 49er Gold Standard?
  • Free Kool-aid Digest?

Any Ideas out there? Anyway, how good are we?

  • 23-0 good?
  • 5000 yards passing good?
  • Verrett is defensive player of the year good?
  • Hurd leads the league in receiving and rushing good?
  • Jimmy G is Super Bowl MVP good?

Let me know what you think. Now onto those sizzling hot links:
