how can the appropriate reaction be an overreaction???
In 2003 if someone said we would not make the playoffs again the rest of the decade....was that an overreaction?
Exactly...what's the appropriate reaction to cockamamie comments like that? Despite anything he does (getting Harbaugh), he continues to come off like this incompetent tool.
People that don't like the comment and saying it was dumb, seems like a reasonable reaction. It's a matter of opinion, so calling it dumb is certainly a valid opinion.
Saying, the 49ers will never win again with this guy as owner, seems like an over-reaction. So I guess we're going 0-16 this year and the next, and the next...
Your interpretation of said phrase is a bit on the literal side.
Agreed, but look through this thread, and all of the outrage over some stupid silly comment that really has no bearing on anything. There's so much hyperbole in here, that my literal interpretation seems reasonable based on the response to his comment.

I am not joking. I just about threw my computer against the wall.
Jed, sell the team. You are a joke and a liar. I believe I am more angry as a Niners' fan than ever. You have to be a moron to buy that argument.
The broadcasters are very skeptical.
Sometimes being a little delusional is a good thing, even if it's tongue in cheek like I think that comment was. Usually people who are uber successful at the things they do have an over-inflated sense of importance of themselves.
When Jerry Rice said in his rookie training camp he was going to be the greatest WR of all time, we'd have probably laughed at him. Now who's laughing?
After making that comment, Rice went out there and busted his a$$ to make it true. The front office does not have the same commitment.
