Despite still being mathematically eligible for the playoffs, any excitement and hope for the rest of this season is over for me. What I saw on Thursday was a 49ers team who was outplayed in every way possible (except maybe not on special teams). Watching the Chargers, I felt that they were a team that was fighting for their playoff lives. Going into this season, us 49ers fans came in with so much excitement from finishing strong last year.
Our defense has not been up to par with last year, while many of us expected them to be a top 5 (me at least) or top 10 defense. Our offense has struggled mightily. We can't get the ball to Vernon Davis for some reason. Frank Gore is out for the rest of the year. Even if we get to the playoffs, does anyone think we have a shot? I'm not saying I'm rooting for us to lose. If we do win out and somehow get into the Playoffs with an embarrassing 7-9 , I'm sure my confidence and excitement level will rise again. My morale is low but how does everyone else feel about the remainder of the season?
