Why the San Francisco 49ers will be back in Super Bowl 55

San Francisco 49ers, Super Bowl

Though the San Francisco 49ers came up short in Super Bowl 54 to the Kansas City Chiefs, here is why they can get back to the big game next year and win it.

No, it was not the result the San Francisco 49ers were hoping for but they’ll be back.

Though they held a lead late in Super Bowl 54, they ran into some Patrick Mahomes magic in the fourth quarter, losing to the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-20. It was a magical night for the Chiefs and they will celebrate. However, don’t hang your head, 49ers fans. Here’s why you can get back to the Super Bowl next year.

This does not feel like a flash in the pan. This team has been marvelously built by general manager John Lynch. Kyle Shanahan has shown he can help get multiple teams to the Super Bowl now. Jimmy Garoppolo played well at times in this game. George Kittle is the best tight end in the NFC. This offensive line is ferocious. You also have the best defensive line in football.

The 49ers’ defensive line is chock full of former first-round picks. Nick Bosa had one of the greatest rookie seasons we’ve ever seen out of a defensive player. DeForest Buckner, Arik Armstead and Dee Ford are all spectacular, too.

You can never have enough good pass-rushers and the 49ers have the best defensive weapons in that department entering next year.

While repeating as NFC Champions is incredibly difficult, this 49ers team is built for sustained success.

They should repeat in the NFC West, as the Los Angeles Rams are trending down, the Arizona Cardinals are still rebuilding and the Seattle Seahawks don’t have as many good players as the 49ers.

Winning the NFC West again will be the first step in the right direction in 2020.

You also have to remember half-a-decade ago, your head coach was Jim Tomsula and then Chip Kelly for two horrendous years in franchise history. Shanahan is the best young offensive mind in football. You also have an elite defensive coordinator returning in Robert Saleh, who didn’t get an NFL head coaching gig in this offseason cycle.

Plus, you can’t discount the unfinished business angle that should fuel them all offseason and throughout 2020.

Ultimately, this loss to the Chiefs will still for a long time. Any Super Bowl loss does. But this doesn’t feel like it’s going to linger.

It’ll hurt for a long time, but this 49ers team is too good to not contend for Super Bowl 55.
