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.

Not always the case two words for you Cleveland Browns

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."

Two more words Miami Dolphins

OK, in the modern era, you've got the repeating Dolphins playing the easiest schedule of any SB winner. On the other hand, I've got the Packers, Cowboys and Steelers and suggesting that younger fans think of their example with respect to the Niners drought. To each his own.

I was there.I'm telling you guys are Siefert pulled Steve and brought Joe in, and THEN he drove for two TDs, we were going, "now what, Joe gonna be gone and all we got is this helter skelter guy Steve?" We had a lot of Monday Night games back in the day.

Remember at the time, Steve had still not settled down all the the way yet. We called him Mr. Chaos for a few years, you could feel the energy in the Stick change when he came out. Completely diff from Joe Cool.

Sighh what a great time those years were..
Now it's Hill and Smith.. nuff said..

NINERS 2009 !!!!!!

That is why I dont complain bc it can always be worse. Always be thankful when you have a great thing.


It was, how about the Dorsey, Rattay and Pickett days.

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.

Nobody can call you a bandwagon fan. At least you have seen the worst so everything is headed up since you started watching. I am 48 and have suffered
through the 2-14 of 1979 also. I am not so sure the 49ers can ever return to the dominance they once had. Through almost 20 years straight of 10 or more win seasons. We had a free spending owner in the non salary cap days who treated
players like family, the best offensive line coach in the history of the NFL, one of the greatest coaches ever and 2 hall of fame QBs . None of the above will probably ever come back, so I am afraid we must lower out expectations.

The "new" Browns are an expansion team from the 90's. The "old" Browns moved and changed their name to the Ravens and won the Superbowl in 2000.

The final word is OWNERSHIP.

No, Bob. As I have already pointed out, most teams which have had great eras eventually come back. We had a couple of HOF QB's in the 50's and early 60's, then, eventually, we got a couple more. The Niners WILL return because every team is compared to the great era - it forces teams which have had great runs to try to re-create them.

I remember being in my high school library and looking over at the morning paper and seeing that we traded him to KC. I actually cried sitting there reading that. It was like your big brother just died. It took me years to love steve, if only because he wasn't Joe...

Makes you think, eh? What could have been. Joe might have had an extra year or two in him with our line blocking for him instead of the Chiefs'. Steve Wallace and Harris Barton were in their prime during his final years.
