The San Francisco 49ers have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. Not after falling short of their sixth championship ring with a loss in Super Bowl LIV. And not after blowing a 10-point fourth-quarter lead in that very game.
There were mistakes along the way — things that could have gone better. There will always be the what-ifs and the hypotheticals that drive fans crazy for years to come.
But at the end of the day, the 2019 season should be one to look back fondly on even if the ultimate goal wasn’t accomplished.
Just the fact that we are sitting here in February talking about an appearance in Super Bowl LIV is miraculous in its own right.
