Today, after suffering more than I would have suffered had my wisdom teeth been pulled out by pliers without the benefit of pain relief by a blind dentist, I nearly had a cardiac when I heard the whimpering of pathetic-sounding 49ers fans.

They were on the radio telling the world who should have played this position, who shouldn't have played that position, questioning timeouts, play-calling, etc.

I have this to say to them:

Woulda.

Coulda.

Shoulda.

Oh, one other thing: It's a team sport.

You win and lose as a team, coaches, fans, players, cheerleaders, and crybaby fans and all.

As Coach Mike Singletary says, there are positives and negatives on every play.

I choose to focus on the positive that I saw displayed by a young, energetic, never-say-die 49ers team today.

I'll take a hard-earned loss and the plentiful positives.

As for the negatives?

Well, if I had all the answers, I'd be the coach, now wouldn't I?

So, whiney Niner fans, please chill.

We're in first place.

Where can I comment?
