Golden Nuggets: So many penalties

, ,

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, August 12th 2017 How nice was it to watch that game last night? In that 27-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the San Francisco 49ers looked so bad at times, but I felt so optimistic with what I saw.

Golden Nuggets: Nice to see football on TV again

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, August 5th 2017 How nice was it to see football on TV Thursday? I don’t care if it was bad football, it was football, it was background noise.

He’s in a new …
