Is anyone else sick of all the whining and excuses coming from the San Francisco 49ers ahead of the Super Bowl?

We saw star defensive end Nick Bosa preemptively bemoan a lack of holding calls to kick off media availability then players and coaches alike complain about the field conditions, then now we've got a new silly controversy.

If the 49ers can't take down Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs this week, rest assured, it'll be because someone pulled the fire alarm at San Francisco's team hotel early Friday morning.

49ers Players Complain About Fire Alarm at Team Hotel

According to ESPN, a fire alarm went off early in the morning and woke up 49ers players. Never mind that they're in Las Vegas and it's loud anyway, but this just sounds like downright whining.

The alarm reportedly went off just seven minutes before George Kittle's 6:10 AM alarm was set to go off. I understand football players are creatures of habit and repitition, yet it's hilarious that they're complaining about waking up just a few minutes early.

"It had to be them," Kittle said. "You don't want to wake the sleeping bear. But Christian was not happy too."

No one was forced to leave the hotel or evacuate, though the 49ers seem convinced that someone purposefully pulled the alarm. Contrast the complaints with the Chiefs' focused attitude throughout the week, and it's obvious San Francisco's roster is in their own heads.

Keep the complaints coming, fellas, it'll only help Kansas City's chances to hoist their third Lombardi Trophy in the last five seasons.
