Outside linebacker Aaron Lynch of the San Francisco 49ers isn’t letting his team’s 1-6 record sour his opinion on his team’s talent level. Why let silly stats like having the second worst point differential in the NFL bring you down? When you’ve got a double-headed quarterback monster of Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick, the sky is the limit!
Here’s Lynch inexplicably placing the 49ers among the NFL’s elite teams.
I know that to succeed in sports you gotta believe in yourself, but this is goddamn ridiculous. I’ve never heard such brazen overconfidence in my entire life. Since crushing the Rams 28-0 in Week 1, the 49ers have lost six straight games by a combined 103 points. It’s not like these guys are losing heartbreakers left and right; they are routinely getting blown the f*ck out.
I guess Lynch is just hoping that if he keeps saying the 49ers are good, it will magically come true. We all know that if you say Beetlejuice three times in a row that creepy bastard will show up, so maybe if Lynch keeps bragging about the 49ers prime Joe Montana and Jerry Rice will come save them. It’s far-fetched, but it’s still a better strategy than employing Chip Kelly as your head coach.
