USATSI Ward deleted his venemous tweet, as Gardner admitted to a fan he didn't see it when it was brought up to him. Gardner didn't actually respond to Ward, but brought up the post later. Plenty of 49ers fans took aim at Gardner's tweet in the aftermath of Ward's response. The 49ers have been to two Super Bowls and four NFC Championships over the last five seasons, with no championships to show for it. The aftermath of this overtime loss will sting, even if San Francisco has the roster to return next season.
