Niner Noise takes a break from looking at the football side of this San Francisco 49ers team and predicts which players will take home “Easter-egg” awards for 2019.
It isn’t a secret San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch wants good guys in his locker room. And so far, besides the occasional mishap (I’m looking at you, Reuben Foster), he has succeeded in bringing in genuinely good people into the locker room. It’s one of the reasons, despite sub-.500 records the past two seasons, there simply aren’t complaints or reports of disgruntled players or locker room tension.
However, little do people know that these guys are also crazy funny and have a great sense of humor.
Watch any 49ers interview (or just watch this clip of the offensive line chugging beers at a San Jose Sharks playoff game at SAP Center) and you’ll be able to tell that any of these players would be people you would be down to hang out with anytime.
Therefore, I think that it would be safe to assume that these players hold secret “Easter-egg” awards — goofy superlatives, such as biggest flirt, most likely to become Instagram famous and the likes of that.
For the sake of this article, let’s assume that these players do hold these awards in real life. All this is just a fun exercise, after all, right?
Therefore, here are my predictions for the 2019 49ers Easter-egg awards.
