Golden Nuggets: Ouch!

Monday, October 20, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Manning out-thinks everybody

Here is my Friday column on Peyton Manning. SANTA CLARA Peyton Manning has a tragic flaw. Out of respect for greatness, let’s not deal with that now, not until we discuss what makes him great. Jim Harbaugh, you’re first. How is Manning different from other great quarterbacks? What is his best quality? “All qualities,” Harbaugh […]

Vic’s picks Week 7

The gambling gods (yes, they exist) didn’t like how I went 12-3 in Week 5, so they served me a slice of humble pie. We went 7-8 and we would like some of that San Francisco Giants luck, please. That is, assuming Bruce Bochy hasn’t made a deal with the devil: Jets at Patriots (-10) – What an ugly game. Want to take points but with no Eric Decker (he’ll be on Revis island), Geno Smith might as well be throwing to you and me. PATRIOTS 49ers at Broncos (-6.5) – No Patrick Willis, no problem. At least as far as San Francisco staying close, that is. Kaepernick could hurt

Greg Roman on Peyton Manning: “I think his body of work speaks for itself. I don’t know if I have the verbose to do it justice.”
