Well, she does have a point.

John Lynch, as general manager, is taking over a San Francisco 49ers team that was a purid 2-14 last season. That fact wasn’t lost on his 9-year-old daughter, who had a very bad — and hysterical — reaction when daddy told the family about his new job. Per

“I think the toughest one — I haven’t told this yet to the media — all my kids took it really well,” Lynch said. “They were shocked but they took it really well. My 9 year old started bawling, and she’s not that girl. She’s the one that was always happy. And she was crying, and I said, ‘What’s wrong Leah? Are you afraid? Is there some nervous anxiety about moving?’ And she said, ‘No daddy,’ and she was sobbing. And I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ And she said, ‘The 49ers are horrible.’ So, I said, ‘Well, I think that’s why they hired your daddy.”

That’s one smart young lady. Niners are 7-25 over the last two seasons, have the No. 2 pick in the upcoming NFL draft, don’t have a long-term option at quarterback and finished last in the league at stopping the run.

Yep, Lynch  has his work cut out for him.
