If you thought the Thanksgiving night performance from the 49ers in their new stadium wasn’t good, you’re not alone. The boss didn’t like it either.
“This performance wasn’t acceptable,” 49ers CEO Jed York said on Twitter. “I apologize for that.”
The statement comes at a time when, as noted earlier in the evening, the organization has been conspicuously quiet about the rampant reports suggesting that coach Jim Harbaugh’s time with the franchise will end after the current season concludes. With the exception of a tweet from York aimed at early October reports that players have grown weary of Harbaugh’s ways, the team has said nothing about the lingering controversy.
York’s latest tweet speaks volumes. With the team now at 7-5 and facing a trip to Seattle on December 14, the 49ers most likely won’t be going to the postseason.
Running the table could salvage things, but how can the 49ers win the final four games when they barely mustered three points at home in the biggest game of the year?
So, yes, the season is likely over. And Harbaugh’s tenure is likely over. Look for the latter angle to gather plenty of steam over the next 10 days, as the 49ers prepare to drive north to Oakland for a game against the Raiders, which could be Harbaugh’s employer by the time January ends.
