We're still a short while until the NFL announces the full 2011 regular season schedule for the San Francisco 49ers, but Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area served up some juicy rumors with all the fixins on his Twitter account.
Which he followed up with ...
I'll come clean: Reason I predicted a 49ers-Ravens game on Thanksgiving is because that's what a good source (not employed in NFL) told me. (Link)
Can you get more perfect scheduling than two family members squaring off against each other on Thanksgiving, a holiday predicated on spending time with people you (at least pretend to) care about? That just screams awesome on so many levels.
Finally, Maiocco tweeted that he's heard the rumor that the 49ers will play a home Monday Night Football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in December. Either way, the full schedule will be released at 4:00 p.m., so stay tuned.
