The San Francisco 49ers won’t have any representatives this year in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Isaac Bruce and John Lynch were finalists Tevin Coleman Jersey , but Denver Broncos beat writer Mike Klis reports Lynch did not make it and ESPN’s Randy Karraker reports Bruce also did not make it into the final five for this year’sclass of inductees.The selection this year had to be a nightmare for voters.In Lynch’s case, former Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed was on the ballot and that’s pretty tough competition to be up against.It should just be the best players getting in, but sometimes voters are not comfortable voting for two players from the same position. Lynch was a nine-time Pro Bowler and three-time All Pro honoree. He was a critical part of the turnaround in Tampa Bay that culminated in a Super Bowl victory thanks to the ‘Tampa-2’ defense. This was Lynch’s sixth time being a finalist in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.After Tampa Bay, Lynch had a brief stint with the Denver Broncos and an even briefer one with the New England Patriots (roughly one month) before calling it a career.Following his retirement, Lynch spent nine years as a TV analyst and was quickly rising up the ranks to be put on the A-squadat FOX and possibly replace Troy Aikman. In 2017, Lynch went another direction and joined the 49ers as their general manager and has been in the process of rebuilding the franchise. Given his integral nature to the Bucs rebuild, it is not surprising what he has brought to the 49ers.Meanwhile, Isaac Bruce, who finished his career with the 49ers, was not selected for 2019. This is Bruce’s third year making it as a semi-finalist only to come up short. he made a name for himself playing for the then St. Louis Rams. He played the final two years of his career with the 49ers, and finished his career with 15,208 receiving yards.The competition is fierce and the voters can sometimes have crazy reasons as to why they keep players out of Canton. In any case Arik Armstead Jersey , it’s another year Lynch and Bruce will have to wait. One game against an awful defense. A game that turned in one of the best debuts in the last decade. I know I wrote about Mullens being a trade candidate, but if all goes well, the 49ers may have an even better problem: a quarterback controversy. Mullens is young and raw, Garoppolo is tuned and about to enter his prime. Given the 49ers’ quarterback problems in recent years, I wouldn’t mind a controversy. That’s a VERY big longshot as debuts tend to be shot down just as quick as they start once teams get film on a quarterback. It was something to think about, maybe a throwback to the days of Joe Montana and Steve Young. It will never happen, for the above reasons and the fact that Mullens wasn’t forced out of another NFL team like Steve Young was. He has one year left on his contract and you can bet if he lights up the league the rest of the season, he’s going to do his best to get out of Santa Clara even as a restricted free agent. He’s not going to stick around and learn for a few years when there’s enough QB needy teams available on the timing of that contract.That is, if the 49ers were to go with Garoppolo.
