49ers get Second place, but as we all know, Second place is the first-place loser. All hail the Chiefs Super Bowl Champions. I am sad that 49ers Come Up Short in Super Bowl 54 but Chiefs were the better team today.
The 2019 season has been one to remember for the 49ers. They went from having the number two overall pick to a 13-3 record and the number one seed in the playoffs. They overcame injury after injury and were one of the most battle-tested teams in the NFL. They plowed right through the competition in the playoffs and were finally healthy heading into the Super Bowl in Miami.
But with all the good that the 49ers had this season, to come away empty-handed at the Super Bowl is one word, disappointing. Only four losses in the 2019 season and this one will, of course, be the hardest. And the worst part is you could feel in the fourth quarter they could come away with a win. You actually felt like they were going to hoist the Lombardi trophy for the sixth time in franchise history.
In a game that is sixty minutes long to point to this play or that play and say that was the one that didn’t is usually impossible. But going back to the right before halftime when the 49ers stopped the Chiefs and were going to get the ball back with a minute and a half left. However, the 49ers with three timeouts chose to not use them and stop the clock. It was a call that felt like it was going to bite them in the end.
Such a wasted opportunity on the drive to not come away with any points when you were going to get the ball back after halftime left an ugly taste in many of the 49erfaithful.
It’s hard to take any moral victories away from the 2019 season but at least it appears the Red and Gold are back to their winning ways. The offseason has officially begun for San Francisco and not in the way it’s fans wanted. But here was are and the #QuestForSix is still alive and well. Will Super Bowl 55 be the one where Kyle Shanahan, John Lynch, and Jimmy Garoppolo can finally hoist the Lombardi trophy? Now begins the discussion.
On a side note, the Super Bowl commercials have really sucked for the past few years. Where has all the creativity gone?
If it ain’t football news, is it worth reading?
