The Seattle Seahawks are currently in first place in the NFC West, and tied for the best record in the National Football League. That doesn’t impress 49ers running back Frank Gore. In a live interview with NFL Network, Gore claimed the 49ers’ 19-17 win over the Seahawks on Sunday was a reminder that they’re “still the big dogs in the division.”

This comes after Seahawks players chose not to compliment the 49ers after their win on Sunday. Could this rivalry get any better? Technically, the 49ers are the reigning NFC West Champions until the season ends, but they would have to win out and hope the Seahawks lose every remaining game to stop Seattle from winning the division.

— You better post up, you better not foul, you better not travel, I’m telling you why… Cousins Claus is coming to town.

Check out Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins in a Santa suit and Air Jordans. Cousins spent Tuesday night on a holiday shopping spree with 100 under privileged kids. He may be naughty on the court, but Cousins is definitely nice for this gesture.

Some guy flew a drone mounted with a high-definition camera over Levi’s Stadium. The bird’s eye view is pretty awesome. Oh, hey, isn’t that the 49ers’ practice field next door? *cartoon light bulb pings over Bill Belichick’s head*

— The Oakland Raiders may have their first 1,000-yard receiver since 2005, writes Scott Bair. How Rod Streater went from an undrafted free agent to a guy that’s close to reaching a mark last set by Randy Moss in Oakland.

Former A’s and Cardinals pitcher Mark Mulder wants to make a comeback. He probably saw how much money Scott Kazmir got from the A’s. Now the San Francisco Giants can finally find a way to roster the final member of the “Big Three.”

The 49ers made several roster moves. What does it all mean?
