Ray Ratto on the 49ers

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.

  1. Its was hardest year in my lifetime to be a 49ers fan.
    On the other hand, it was nice to be able to take Sunday afternoons off knowing that my team wasn't going to win anyways and the only excitement would be seeing how much worse they could be than the week before.
    These are the years when season ticket holders like my dad have to decide "upgrade or stop being a season ticket holder?"... Hopefully upgrading now will be a worthwhile investment. Fingers crossed..
