Weird pregame scene at Levi’s starts with York hugging Harbaugh, ends with Willis rallying the team

I’m here at Levi’s Stadium, and what a weird situation we’re witnessing. Jed York was on the field prior to pregame warmups, talking to national reporters. I wasn’t on the field, but from the press box I could see a gaggle of reporters (mostly local), hoping to get a word with the 49ers CEO. Apparently York dismissed them with a quick “nope” when asked if he would answer some questions.

No surprise, York hates the local guys. We’ll probably have to wait for his written explanation in MMQB later this week to find out his thoughts on all of this Jim Harbaugh madness. Oh boy, I can’t wait for all of the smear campaigns yet to come!

— The guys who won’t play today:

— Harbaugh was all smiles on the field during pregame warmups for the final time, except here:

— This is probably the last time we’ll see Harbaugh do this with Colin Kaepernick:

— Or this:

— Patrick Willis gave the pregame speech, with Harbaugh standing with him in the middle of the circle. Notice anyone on the outside who doesn’t seem all that interested? A certain right tackle, perhaps?
