John Lynch’s message to 49ers fans: We’re sure we’re heading toward championships

Mar 1, 2018 at 11:14 AM--


San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch sat down with Peter Schrager of NFL Network on Thursday. His 49ers are coming off of a spectacular run at the end of the 2017 season, winning their final five games of the year, going undefeated in December, and beating three playoff-bound teams along the way.

While the 49ers started the season losing nine-straight games, the strong finish lifted the team to a 6-10 record.

"I learned the way to get people to feel good about 6-10 is to start 0-9," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Thursday.

Lynch and Shanahan hope to carry the momentum from the end of last season into 2018. With his rookie season out of the way, Schrager asked Lynch what message he wants to send to the 49ers' fanbase.

"First of all, we call our fanbase 'The Faithful,'" Lynch said. "I'd just like to say we appreciate you. That stadium started to rock again, and that's what we want to carry on to next year. We're going to continue to build a great team that's going to make you proud.

"Our goal when [Shanahan and I] took this is to compete for championships every year. We're not there yet. We've got to continue to build it, but that's where we're going, and we're sure about that. And we appreciate the support from all our fans."

Kyle Shanahan felt his San Francisco 49ers were the best team in football last year. You could argue that the Niners were better than 30 other NFL teams. The Kansas City Chiefs, being Super Bowl champions, obviously can make a strong case that they were the best. Still, even a loss on sports' biggest stage isn't enough to convince Shanahan that his squad was second to anybody. "I felt like, offensively, defensively, special teams, the way we played throughout the year, I thought we were the best team, and I thought we were that day (too)," Shanahan told The Athletic in April. "And we weren't for the whole 60 minutes (in Super Bowl LIV), and that's why, all

If you don't want to hear him speak up about racism and social issues, then how about you don't bother watching him play football on Sundays, either. Armstead spoke with Sactown Magazine and is featured on the cover of its July/August issue. The publication posted the following quote from Armstead via Instagram (h/t to Alex Didion of NBC Sports Bay Area). "If you don't want me speaking out against racism and social
