Regardless, it's not pissing match you can win and only diminishes the point of comparing how these two teams stack up based on their current rosters and recent success.
See, now that comment would have been a totally appropriate response to mine.
And deserved. And followed the humor in the jabs. This is supposed to be fun and lively.
Rams have won exactly 1 Superbowl. Niners have won 5. But, Rams have won their one more recently than the Niners won their 5. That is all I said.
I can't give you the recent success you love though. Niners rocked and were simply a powerhouse of insane proportions during their high years in the 80's and 90's. Beautiful football.
You discounted the 60's and 70's, but cling to the 80's and 90's. You also chopped off the first half of the 00 decade because it hurt your record.
Fact is, Rams have been a bad bad team for years. Everyone beat the Rams from 2005 on. Isn't really a thing to brag about. But Niners also have not been the great team you seem to think during those years either.
I mentioned our overall historical record, discounting nothing: 62-62-3.
For this decade it is: 3-2-1.
Niners can change both records to their favor this year.
For current rosters and success, you have won 2 NFC W championships, 1 NFC Championship and have been to the SB. Respect for that. Rams have not done any of that.
But, once you bring in the history of your team, it's kind of unfair to pick and choose which years of history count.
