49ers WR Kendrick Bourne: ‘We gonna win the Super Bowl’

May 2, 2020 at 2:24 PM--

Losing Super Bowl LIV has motivated the San Francisco 49ers, who hope to bounce back and return to the big game, this time walking away with the organization's sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy.

One of the many players who is working hard this offseason to make sure he is in shape and ready to contribute in a big way is fourth-year receiver Kendrick Bourne.

Bourne likes the 49ers' chances for the 2020 season and not only guarantees his squad will be in Florida on February 7, 2021, for Super Bowl LV, but promises a win in the big game for a fanbase that hasn't enjoyed one in 25 years.

The 24-year-old receiver signed a one-year tender with the 49ers in April.

Bourne is part of a receiver group that lost veteran Emmanuel Sanders this offseason but added rookie Brandon Aiyuk via the draft. Oh, and there's still Deebo Samuel, the second-year player who had an impressive rookie campaign last season.

San Francisco also hopes Jalen Hurd and Trent Taylor, who each missed all of last season due to injury, can return and contribute. General manager John Lynch recently said the 49ers hadn't lost faith in Dante Pettis, a second-round pick from two years ago.

Bourne, who was signed in 2017 as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Washington, hauled in 30 receptions for 358 yards with a career-high five touchdowns through 16 games in 2019. Twenty-three of those 30 catches resulted in either a first down or a score.

Bourne also caught six receptions for 88 yards and a score in the playoffs, including two catches for 42 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. Five of those six catches went for either a first down or a touchdown.

There has been a lot of talk about the 49ers' mindset entering the upcoming season. They feel they have some unfinished business. You've probably heard the term "Legendary Revenge Tour" several times by now. While the team carries the Super Bowl loss with it, the loss is not going to impact its focus on the now.

As you've probably read by now, two of three Good Morning Football hosts — Kyle Brandt and Nate Burleson — predicted that the San Francisco 49ers would miss the playoffs this season. "That Super Bowl-loss hangover is real," Burleson explained as part of his reasoning. NFL insider Ian Rapoport isn't so sure. At least, not when it comes to the 49ers. He feels San Francisco may be uniquely built to overcome predictions of a decline. "I thought the Niners had kind of a really good offseason," Rapoport said on KNBR's Murph & Mac show Tuesday morning. "It wasn't like very exciting. The Trent Williams trade was exciting.

Bill Barnwell of ESPN made a case for all 32 NFL teams to make it to Super Bowl LV. Yes, even the Jacksonville Jaguars, who, according to ESPN, have the lowest odds to get that far. The San Francisco 49ers were able to reach the big game last season, which surprised many analysts, and came close to winning it all. What is the key to the 49ers' Super Bowl hopes? Staying healthy. "To get back and over the top, they need quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to stay healthy and some of his receivers to join him," wrote Barnwell. "We already know how great the defensive line can be, but the 49ers' defense took a step
