Jim Schwartz Painted Bleak Picture For Future Of Jim Harbaugh, 49ers In Offseason ... Now Look At 'Em

The Detroit Lions are now out of the playoffs, and for many San Francisco 49ers fans, that's a definite positive. While they surely would have preferred, for a brief moment, that the Lions beat the New Orleans Saints and give San Francisco a more favorable matchup in the Divisional Round, there was something of a small rivalry between the teams after the handshake antics following the 49ers' win.

Personally, I wanted them to miss the playoffs altogether after how Jim Schwartz acted, but seeing them utterly dominated at the hands of the Saints in the first round is actually good enough. They get worse draft positioning and nothing added to their resume, save for the clock wound back and ready to count out the next playoff-less decade.

What's even sweeter about all of this is the fact that Schwartz, during the offseason which was hectic and full of doubt with the NFL lockout, spoke to Jim Harbaugh and rambled on and on about how there was no way the 49ers would be able to get things together with the shortened offseason. Apparently Schwartz put it on pretty thick, and Harbaugh just listened politely.

And now they're out of the playoffs while the 49ers are hosting a Divisional game after finishing the season 13-3.
