Ever since the San Francisco 49ers attempted to trade Jim Harbaugh last offseason, there was an onslaught of rumors surrounding the now-former head coach’s future.
When asked by Damon Bruce on 95.7 The Game if he would have preferred that CEO Jed York and general manager Trent Baalke had “diffused” the situation, Alex Boone explained that he wished “more people” had “stepped up” to quiet the noise.
“I don’t want to get myself in trouble…I’m not trying to go down that route.”
Boone then proceeded to describe how he, and other 49ers, would have liked to see the situation handled.
“But, to be honest with you, I think that a lot of guys on the team would have wished that, you know, more people would have stepped up and said stuff. More people would have been more animate about the fact that this isn’t all going to happen. That this isn’t, it’s not true. It’s not true. Blah, blah, blah.”
“It just never felt that way with anybody. It always felt like everybody was just kind trying to go through the motions. No, I want you to vehemently get out there and say, “Listen, stop talking about this. Figure out who’s bringing it up, whoever’s talking about it and just get rid of it. It never felt like that with us.”
