Time to take a step back

The news of the last few weeks which is both too sordid and too voluminous to summarize here has brought me to a breaking point. This isn't my "giving up on the team" post. Rather, it's my "I can't keep defending these guys" post. It's exhausting and dispiriting. Perhaps we've turned a corner on 49ers behaving badly. Perhaps this is just the first bites of the s@$t sandwich.

Regardless I'm through refreshing the page to get the latest leaked police reports or perp walks. I'm also through trying to find the silver linings therein. And most of all I'm done defending against the onslaught of rubber-neckers showing up to point and laugh.

I'm betting I'm not alone.
