The San Francisco 49ers‘ 17-7 loss from the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday put a nail in the coffin for the 49ers’disastrous 2014 season. Yet again, the 49ers displayed another wretched performance offensively.
You’ve to give credit to the stifling, the best D in the NFL of the Seahawks, who sacked Colin Kaepernick six times. However, the ongoing symphony this year for the 49ers has to be their inconsistencies on offense, then you have all the distractions with their coach Jim Harbaugh and his rift with general manager Trent Baalke.
It is completely baffling to start to see the drastic decline of the 49ers’West Coast offense that was ranked among the Top 10 in the NFL for four years in a row. The only real bright location for the 49ers this year was the defense that thrived inspite of the multitude of injuries sustained, including NaVorro Bowman, who has now have not played the whole season because of an ACL injury, and Patrick Willis, who’s on injured reserve as a result of lingering toe injury. Kudos to defensive coordinator Vic Fangio for still guiding the 10th-ranked San Francisco defense.
When it comes to remaining portion of the season, the 49ers will probably finish with a straight bigger thud, facing off from the San Diego Chargers and the Arizona Cardinals again. It’s hard to assume that the franchise of San Francisco’s caliber went from riding a trend of three straight years, advancing to the NFC title game and also making it to the Super Bowl, now this is a team that can barely get a touchdown in a big game.
Harbaugh is an excellent coach, but let’s face it — his tenure since the 49ers’head coach has likely reached a screeching halt. Harbaugh’s impending departure has more regarding his internal clashes with management than it does with San Francisco’s lackluster season.
Nonetheless, his 43-18-1 record in three seasons is hard never to be impressed with if you’re a 49ers fan. Some other fortunate team is going to be enjoying his services soon enough.
