Golden Nuggets: Requiem for Jim

New, comments

Monday, December 15, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

There's a lot that's been said about how this season has gone (or not gone) for the 49ers. Most people outside the organization think that Jim Harbaugh is gone after the season, and though I don't fully agree with that, I totally understand it. I know there's still two games left in the season, but if Jim is really gone, then he at least deserves a farewell song. I think the lyrics of "You must love me" from the musical Evita, but more popularly sung by Madonna in the movie adaptation are quite appropriate:

Where do we go from here?
This isn't where we intended to be
We had it all, you believed in me
I believed in you

Certainties disappear
What do we do for our dream to survive?
How do we keep all our passions alive,
As we used to do?

Deep in my heart I'm concealing
Things that I'm longing to say
Scared to confess what I'm feeling
Frightened you'll slip away

Where do Jed York, his 49ers, and Jim Harbaugh go from here? What changes will it take for the dream of a 6th Superbowl win to come to San Francisco? Why was so much concealed and left unsaid by the front office, the coaches, and Colin Kapaernick? This season and the Harbaugh era has totally slipped away.
