I don't, man. I don't. I remember being amazed on a weekly basis for years and years and I'll never forget.

Yeah, and that is what has made the past few seasons soooooo painful. I remember watching every Sunday just wondering how much we would win by, not if we would win or lose. Ahhh, the good ol days!

I feel for all the young bucks who never got the chance to witness greatness, and are accustomed to witnessing mediocrity! I say a prayer for all of them today, that things will change for them this coming season. Go Niners!

I'm only 16, I've always been a 49er fan but I didn't really start watching until that (2-14) 2004 season when I was 11. I just wanna see them win it all once in my lifetime, I want to experience that feeling.

Who's forcing anyone to watch?

Being a fan, you force yourself to watch smart guy. WTF!
Brought a tear to my eye.

Hang in there buddy. It'll come back around.

I was gonna ask if anybody here had become a fan after the Montana/Young era. There is at least one out there.

Dont' worry bud, things are starting to turn around. We are gonna make the playoffs this season barring some terrible luck on the injury front.

One great reason to hang in there for the younger fan is that if you look at the NFL, teams with a history of a great run usually come back. I'm sure there were many fans of the Steelers who came along in the early 80's and 90's, envied the older fans for being around during the glorious 70's and finally got their payoffs. The Packers fans had to wait a long time but because there was that tradition of greatness, they were always expected to come back. Anyone who runs the Niners has to reckon with the history which is challenging in the same way it was for the Packers and Steelers.

Oh, so this!

You just never felt we were ever out of reach of winning a game. It wasn't over until the fat lady sung, period. Those Saints and Eagles games where we come back from huge deficits where purely awesome. He just kept us in the game.

That is why I hated how he left. That is why I don't like Seifert. (oh, did I say that out loud?)

It almost breaks my heart everytime I watch that game. It is a reminder of how he left. I would rather see all the other games.


PS Watching that clip, I remember seeing it live and I did believe what Dierdorf said in that "Everything is right with the world again."[/quote]

So true, so true.

I was thinking of the modern Superbowl era. Before the modern era, communities weren't as invested in pro teams because the game hadn't become a media sensation yet. Crowds and interest in the old NFL wasn't nearly as great as these days. When the Browns were good, Baseball was the "national pass time."
Also, I was trying to make an argument which would make younger fans feel better about their short and long-term prospects. But, I appreciate your contribution.
my hero
No charge!
