Real tough look for Aaron Lynch here. I mean, I know what he was trying to do by ignoring the suspiciously accurate NFL lines makers, the results of all-but-one of his team's games, and the wide standing belief of the general public. I just can't help but think that it was completely counterproductive. I couldn't possibly have less faith in the potential of the San Francisco 49er's after watching their starting linebacker repeat how good they are over...and over...and over again. Maybe if he stopped calling a 1-6 squad whose most memorable play happens on the sidelines during the National Anthem the "best team" after the first or second time then I would be more likely to consider the validity of his ludicrous proclamation. However, once you reach 7-10 times you start to sound eerily similar to Stuart Smalley staring in the mirror trying to convince himself of his value as a person.
In the beginning of the interview I felt compelled to go take a gander at the stats, but by the time he said "...easily the best team in our conference, for sure" that proverbial cold water had hit my face and I realized just how completely full of shit that he was. You want to talk about ever-so-slight, unfortunate mix-ups? He doesn't "go to sleep at night knowing" he's a part of the best team, he tells himself he's a part of the best team so that he's able to sleep night. I know that because I have an elementary understanding of the NFL and a rudimentary knowledge that a person that feels the need to repeat the same shit every 2.5 seconds is insecurely trying to convince themselves of it's truth.
