You can call it a humbling experience, although I don’t think the 49ers were cocky.
You can call it a wake up call, although I think the 49ers were pretty aware of what was going on.
You might even want to call it a game where the 49ers weren’t prepared, although I think Jim Harbaugh prepares for every game as well as any other coach.
But I know I can call this loss the the Minnesota Vikings the best thing that could happen to the San Francisco 49ers. In fact, I am glad that it happened. Instead of my crazy idea of a perfect season, the 49ers got the bad loss out of the way and now have a week in Youngstown to get their act together.
