Golden Nuggets: The sky is much much lower

New, comments

San Francisco 49ers links for Monday, November 2 2015.

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

It's getting mighty claustrophobic for this 2015 49ers team as the sky seems to be crowding them from above, and the ground hasn't been much help either. If they're not slipping on the turf at home, then they are slipping on concrete on the road as Reggie Bush has so sadly discovered. That (yet to be confirmed) ACL injury is the irony of all ironies for this team. If it wasn't bad enough that GM Trent Baalke keeps drafting members yearly to his Team ACL, he finally got hold of a "healthy" veteran who promptly becomes the best paid member of Team ACL.

As usual around a team playing dismally, talk about selling off its most useful parts is intensifying. So far, trade rumors have floated around Colin Kaepernick, Joe Staley, Vernon Davis, and even Anquan Boldin. Somehow I doubt that any veteran gets traded since there seems to be a heavy dose of self-denial being taken among the leadership of this franchise right now. No one is willing to utter the word "Rebuilding" as if it is some sort of evil thing. It's time for the front office to wake up though or they could all find themselves out of a job come season's end.

Can anyone fire Jed York though? Well that might be a question for his mommy and daddy.
