San Francisco 49ers fans are likely waking up Monday morning hoping to forget about last night's heartbreaking 30-27 loss to the New York Giants. It was a loss that knocked the 49ers down to 1-4, the worst record among NFC West teams.
QB Colin Kaepernick, being optimistic about the season, says the 49ers still have an opportunity to go 12-4 this season. Of course, this loss was the 49ers' fourth straight following their season opening victory against the Minnesota Vikings.
