Oh, what a hard thing it is to be a 49ers fan these days. Ray Ratto sums it up thusly:
Teams that go 2-14 never get that way with inferior coaching alone. You also need inferior talent, inferior talent recognition, and inferior ownership finding the people to recognize that talent… [A]ny lunkhead can go 6-10. It takes a special kind of train wreck to lose those extra four games, and when the two wins happen to be in overtime against the Arizona Cardinals — well, jeepers, Timmy, you have something truly special.
Best of luck to Mike Nolan. I think he’s going to need it.
