In the waning moments of Thursday night's 19-3 loss to the Seattle Seahakwes, and with thousands of red seats already empty, 49ers CEO Jed York posted on Twitter: "Thank you #49ersfaithful for coming out strong tonight. This performance wasn't acceptable. I apologize for that."
That comment blindsided 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, who said: “I don’t know anything about the tweet. They played better as a team than we did.”
