Here are 10 thoughts after watching the Week 5 games from Sunday.
1– That is what Jim Harbaugh thinks of your rumors. It was reported that 49ers won’t retain Harbaugh after this season, even the 49ers win the Super Bowl. Of course, there was a lot of discussion as to what that really means and if that is true at all. CEO Jed York even chimed in with a tweet that didn’t really deny it.
But winning solves everything, right? Well if that’s the case, the 49ers are doing just fine. The win wasn’t pretty, but it saw the running game strong again, the passing game play well enough to win and Phil Dawson making all his kicks. Even though it was Alex Smith’s return, that ended up being secondary as the 49ers were able to control the momentum late and force Smith into a late-game interception to seal the win. Until the end of the season comes, I don’t think too much about it. And if the 49ers keep winning, then this will die down. And if the 49ers still win the Super Bowl and let Harbaugh go, then at least the 49ers won the Super Bowl.
