|We Had To See This Coming, and It Makes Me Ill|
The dismantling of the San Francisco 49ers is now officially underway.
We all know the Harbaugh story, so no need to repeat it - but his firing was the start. Now, our buddy Jed York (dumber than a post), is listening to Trent Baalke. If you were to ask me, Baalke doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground regarding the NFL ... maybe football altogether.
So Jed says we need "to win with class"! What the Hell does that mean, anyway. Seems he has a very short memory. It was Harbaugh that took a sun-500 team to the NFC Championship his very first year as an NFL coach - with the very same team Singletary couldn't break 500 with; no offense to Singletary. I always liked him as a player ... not so much as a coach, but he tried.
The first words after Jim was shown the door and we got that crap about "class", we heard Jed himself say that Gore was our man / that he was here to stay / that he would see "the rock" more going forward / that he is one of the best ever - and now we hear that Gore is heading to Phili? He may or may not end up there, but the point is he won't be here!
Follow that up with Patrick Willis and Justin Smith, both announcing their retirement tomorrow. And this is all within the last 24 hours!
What the Hell is wrong with the Yorks. The whole family has a severe case of optic rectitus; like father like son.
We are in the early stages of witnessing the 9ers, the oh so close 9ers under Harbaugh, after a decade of failure, being taken apart just like one might disassemble a vehicle for parts...and it just breaks my heart.
