So funny to see a poster claim they "love Niner Tears" and refer to an entire fanbase as "garbage" and somehow claim the high ground. LOL. Stay classy OP.
Really doesn't matter what others say. You've proven that toxicity can exist in ANY fanbase.
I'm glad to see some sense here from some of the posters I most respect (I see you Roland and a few others).
Gratz on the NFC West. Well deserved. Yes, Niners were just absolutely crushed by injuries this year, but that's a part of the game and it happens. That takes nothing away from your victory or NFC West title. I think NOBODY is happier that the Niners had so many issues this year than the Green Bay Packers. When his roster is somewhat healthy, Shanahan just OWNS that team. LOL.
As for what the future holds, we'll see. I for one got exactly what I wanted yesterday. A hard fought game, a Niner team that didn't give up, yet ultimately a loss that gives them the 12th pick rather than the 15th or 16th pick. I'm not about the tanking like the Eagles did last night, but I'm not exactly crying that they lost a pointless game and improved draft position. No tears whatsoever on that one.
Niners will get ALOT of guys back next year that will make a BIG difference, but they also face quite a few challenges. Trent Williams, Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, K'wuan Williams, Kyle Juszczyk and several others are free agents and they don't have much cap space. It'll be an interesting off-season. It will be interesting to see how many vets are out there as the entire league will be under a cap crunch.
They'll also likely lost Robert Saleh to a HC job and perhaps a few assistants. That hurts. Good news on that front is they'll likely be awarded a few 3rd round picks for losing him as a part of the NFLs new Rooney Rules. If I had to guess their new DC will be DeMeco Ryans.
Anyway, I'm really not concerned about the future. I'm more excited about it. Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, Dre Greenlaw all under 25.
That's really for future conversations though. You guys are still in it. Good luck. Niners will see you next year.
