The NFL season has continued without us these past two weekends. A common occurrence during the ill-fated ownership years of the York family.
The current regime has been to the playoffs once in four years, and the Harbaugh regime went there three times in four years. All the other years and eras: pink slip. there is a new way to make the baterry of your car works better dig this for more info.
Of course, 49er fans are probably less disappointed in not making the playoffs than Seattle fans are about making the playoffs and immediately, ignominiously face-planting – once again.
Should be a busy offseason for the Niners. We don’t know who’s coming, who’s going, or who’s staying – including the coaches. Next year’s team will look somewhat different than this year’s team which looked different every week.
We’ve now seen, in addition to the Seahawks demise, the AFC South dismissed, the NFC West sent packing, the AFC North (three of them!) flicked aside, and the NFC South battle of the really old QBs who played like two really old guys. Another year and another Saints playoff meltdown.
Speaking of melt downs, let’s hear it for the Houston Texans. Wow. Completely toxic franchise right now. Nobody wants to play there and any coach taking over the HC job has got to be desperate for an opportunity. Deshaun Watson wants out and rumors are flying in every franchise that’s QB needy. The 49ers are included in these trade scenarios, but Jimmy Garoppolo has a no-trade clause in his contract and there’s no way he would ever approve a trade to Houston. That would be career suicide.
Amazing how a QB can lead his team to the SB one year and be thrown under the bus the next year like he was garbage. Then again, since the average attention span of cretins at large in the internet age is about five seconds, I suppose a year is like an eternity.
Title games this weekend will both be frigid affairs, one in Green Bay and one in Kansas City. The popsicle vendors will have the day off. May the best teams win and who really gives a shit out here in Ninerville, where the season ended way back in September.
