Why Today Was a Good Day for the 49ers

March 8, 2022 will go down as an important date in 49ers history, and they didn’t even do anything that day.

They simply watched as the Seahawks traded Russell Wilson and a fourth-round pick to the Denver Broncos for two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a fifth-round pick, Drew Lock, Noah Fant and Shelby Harris.

Suddenly, another future Hall of Fame quarterback has left the NFC for the AFC and made the 49ers’ path to the Super Bowl easier, all because the Broncos decided to give up more than the Rams gave up for Matthew Stafford just to get 33-year-old Russell Wilson, who’s now the third-best quarterback in the AFC West behind Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert. Which means the Broncos probably won’t win a Super Bowl with Wilson. Which means they probably lost this trade.
