I know it’s popular for fans to root against their division rivals if their rivals make the playoffs and the team they are rooting for doesn’t. However, I have never subscribed to that belief. Once the season is over, all is forgiven as far as I’m concerned. And that’s why I’m pulling for the San Francisco 49ers to win the Super Bowl.
What a story it would be! A team that was extremely talented but highly dysfunctional fires their coach (Mike Singletary), hires a new coach (Jim Harbaugh), and completely turns things around in one season. I wonder what Mike Singletary is thinking these days!
