Golden Nuggets: Marcus Martin prepares for his first NFL start

Golden Nuggets: Marcus Martin prepares for his first NFL start

Thursday, October 30, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. Good morning everyone. The 49ers went into their bye a battered and beaten team, but come out much healthier. They face a beaten down Ram's team that just lost two players - Jake Long and Brian Quick - to season ending injuries.

It's a curious move, because while Mark Barron certainly still has some upside as a big safety, the Rams are going nowhere. I'm not sure trading draft picks to...

Raiders fall to 0-7 with 23-13 loss to Browns

CLEVELAND — The Raiders couldn’t score a touchdown for the first 59 minutes Sunday and were actually in the game for three quarters.
