Remember when the Jim Harbaugh-led 49ers went to the NFC Championship Game in 2011 and 2013?
Remember when the Harbaugh-led 49ers went to the Super Bowl in 2012?
Remember when the 49ers and Harbaugh "mutually" agreed to part ways?
"Sometimes, you'll make bad decisions in an organization," Joe Montana told USA Today Sports recently. "And I think letting Jim Harbaugh go was not a good decision on their part at that point in time...
"All of a sudden they were in the Super Bowl and then it just took a dive."
But the 49ers legend and Hall of Fame quarterback is feeling OK but the state of the franchise.
"I think it's heading in the right direction," Montana said. "I like both those guys (John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan). I think they're trying to change the culture that had been kind of destroyed from prior years.
"Won't be done tomorrow."
The 49ers are set to report to training camp on July 27, with the first preseason game -- at the Chiefs -- on Aug. 11.
The Red and Gold open the season on Sept. 10 against the Panthers.
