What a season…
…and it ended so dramatically. Hey, gang – nobody thought the Niners would make the post-season. Nobody saw them earning home field advantage through it. When things revved up this year, nobody called all of the following: a number 1 defense, a reinvigorated Alex Smith, and a special teams group that was aces. The boys in red and gold didn’t make it to Indianapolis, but they gave us a season of comebacks, of stifling defense, and more dramatic finishes than any other team in the league. (Yes, including the Broncos.) Thank you, Niners, for a great year. Any chance you’ll decide to keep playing in San Francisco?
