1994 The Niners defeated the Raiders, Rams, and Saints, 3 easy teams, lost the KC, before being embarassed by the Eagles @ home 40-8. We came back and won 10 straight after that. So you can throw the towel in if you want, but we've been hear before, we'll get past it, we'll get better from it.
PS We outscored ATL 92-17 that year lol.
These comparisons make me want to scream! The 94 team had 10 pro bowlers on it and had lost to the eventual Super Bowl winning Cowboys in the NFC title game! Since it was the second best team in the NFL the year before, the 40-8 drubbing and 3-2 record were a shock and major embarrassment. This year's team is coming off a 7-9 season, with a pie throwing career 3rd string QB, and maybe 2 pro bowlers. A 3-2 record is an improvement and getting blown out 45-10 by a play-off team from the year prior should not be a shock. How numerous zoners keep comparing the situations is baffling.
