The San Francisco 49ers finished off another season with a loss to the Los Angeles Rams. The game would be a perfect metaphor for the year, with it being full of good and bad moments, as well as some injuries.
Well that’s it, the end to another forgettable season for the San Francisco 49ers.
It was a season decimated by injury and inconsistency, but we did at least see some strong performances from youthful players.
To finish the season, the Niners ended up going down 48-32 to the Los Angeles Rams, who are the undisputed benchmark of the NFC West.
While it was a game the 49ers were never really in, the team did redeem themselves to tight end George Kittle somewhat. The second-year pro can trade in his failed attempt at the all-time receiving yards for a tight end in a single game for a realized attempt at the all-time receiving yards for a tight end in a season.
The most important takeaway for this season is that the rookies have almost all been great to showing potential in their time on the field, and it’s time to put some more pieces of the team together for the 49ers’ third year of the John Lynch-Kyle Shanahan era.
But that’s an article for another time. Let’s finish the season by recapping the good and the bad of Week 17.
