The 49ers are coming off their worst season in more than a decade. It featured one of the worst run defenses in NFL history and resulted in a complete clearing out as CEO Jed York fired GM Trent Baalke and head coach Chip Kelly.
This season marks the dawning of a new era as John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan are in place as the team’s braintrust.
The rebuild will take a while, but it begins this fall, whether the Faithful are ready for more football in the South Bay or not.
