49ers Having Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

New, comments

It's been that kind of day and offseason for the 49ers.

It has quickly become one of the worst offseasons imaginable for the San Francisco 49ers.

First, they lost head coach Jim Harbaugh, who led the franchise to three playoff appearances, three trips to the NFC Championship, and one play shy of a win in Super Bowl XLVII.

The name reports of their so-called franchise quarterback being on the trade block. Jayson Braddock of SportsTalk 790 in Houston reported San Francisco is looking to deal the 27-year-old QB. The Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears are two teams believed to be interested, per Braddock. Whether this rumor is true or not (it's since been refuted by the 49ers), it's never a good look on your team when there's speculation you're not sold on your $100 million signal-caller.

Making matters worse is two of the 49ers' best players of the past five years are both retiring. All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis and defensive lineman Justin Smith are both set to retire this offseason, leaving San Fran without two of their best players from the past seven seasons.

Surely, it couldn't get any worse than this...until it was reported Bruce Miller was arrested last week for spousal battery. Miller is one of the best fullbacks in the game, and he's helped pave the way for San Francisco's top five rushing offense. This also comes just months after the team cut Ray McDonald amid a sexual assault investigation, which came after he was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence in August.

Oh, and to top it all off, the 49ers are now reportedly interested in domestic violence All-Star Greg Hardy. In case you forgot, Hardy is currently on the commissioner's exempt list after he was found guilty in a bench trial last year after assaulting and threatening to kill his girlfriend.

Needless to say, this has been one of the single-worst days an NFL team has endured in recent memory.
