Two delsultory teams closed out their desultory seasons yesterday with a desultory overtime mess that the 49ers won via FG after the Rams had botched their own effort to win via FG.
Of the 49ers five wins this season, two came in overtime after their opponent had botched a game winning FG. Not sure if this unique strategy for winning games is the brain child of HC Jim Tomsula or some other idiot in the organization. Whatever, it was the only thing preventing a seven game losing streak to close out the season.
Two hours after the game, Tomsula was fired. One and done. No apology has yet been issued by the 49er brass for hiring this bozo to replace Jim Harbaugh, but owner Jed York has scheduled a 10:30am presser for this morning. Perhaps he’ll ask forgiveness for being a complete dimwit and an all around ridiculous entity.
Wikipedia will be updating its Tomsula entry to include his accomplishments during his 8 years with the 49ers: clubhouse rat, owner brown noser, sideline buffoon, scapegoat, and the guy who set the bar so low that any incoming coach will look good in comparison.
At any rate, congratulations to Grumpy Guy and RTFirefly for correctly prognosticating the Niners’ 5-11 season record. And the final tally for this year’s featured contest, the Jim Harbaugh Scoreboard, is as follows:
1. Cardinals: 13-3 [Iupati]
2. Michigan: 10-3 [Harbaugh, Drevno]
3. Redskins: 9-7 [Culliver]
4t. Bills: 8-8 [Roman]
Colts: 8-8 [Gore]
6. Raiders: 7-9 [Crabtree, Seely]
7. Bears: 6-10 [Fangio, Donatell]
8t. 49ers: 5-11 [Not Harbaugh]
Unca_Chuck’s Blog: 5-11 [York, Baalke, Tomsula]
10. Chargers: 4-12 [Stevie Johnson]
11. Titans: 3-13 [Walker, Cox]
And that concludes the San Francisco 49ers 2015 season. If you were expecting a good season, our condolences. If you were looking for a disaster, yea verily it came to pass.
