The San Francisco 49ers took months last year to get over the sting of a three-point Super Bowl loss to Baltimore. It won’t be much different as they head into the offseason now, again left to ponder how close they were to competing for another championship.
Although they made a deeper playoff push a year ago, the 2013 season for the 49ers was far from a letdown. The team continued to improve each week, and heading into the off season know that they have a quarterback and defense that is going to make them contenders for years to come.

Despite a pair of earlier two-game skids, they still have a chance at another NFC West crown, if all goes right in Week 17. Not too far off from the way they hoped it would go down the December stretch.
Yes, Jim Harbaugh wants to coach the San Francisco 49ers for years to come. No, he doesn’t want to discuss a contract extension in a public forum.
