Jed York tells ESPN that Niners are ‘going to win the division’

Owner and president of the 49ers, Jed York, sent a text to ESPN on Monday morning claiming that although the Niners are now 0-5 — one of three winless teams in the NFL — “We’re going to win the division.”

The 49ers suffered their latest defeat Sunday night to the Philadelphia Eagles.

While the Philadelphia Eagles came together just fine behind Kevin Kolb, the 49ers appeared to be come apart at the seams until Alex Smith led a thrilling fourth-quarter rally that fell just short.

If York is correct, it will be a historic achievement. According to ESPN.com, no team has started off with 0-5 record and then reached the playoffs.

The 49ers host the Raiders, who are 2-3 this season, next Sunday.
