The 49ers got jobbed last Thursday night. The game should have been rescheduled, like games earlier in the season were, but the NFL didn’t want to lose the Thursday TV revenue.
It probably didn’t matter since the team was down to 3rd stringers and guys off the street, but I’m sure teams in the NFC North weren’t too pleased at the Packers getting a slam dunk win.
The quality and legitimacy of the product is clearly of lesser importance to the NFL this year than cramming through an entire season. Quantity over quality this year.
Nothing like a year gone awry to bring out the blogosphere GM wannabe wolves. Nevermind the Niners were a SB team last year. Now they’re junk and need to be rebuilt. Jimmy Garoppolo must be replaced. The coaches suck, the GM sucks. It’s going to be a long season and a longer offseason.
I suppose we should root for the team to finish badly, to inch as far up the 2021 draft board as possible. We certainly have a lot of practice in that regard.
Sorry for the late post and the lack of any imagination or energy in its content. As everyone is aware, there were a few other events occurring this past week that drew my interest considerably more than the meagre comings and goings of the injury prone 49ers.
