I cant believe how much of the Zone is defending Singletary and our management.
what a sad state of affairs this has become. I know many of you would love to bounce up and down on a HOF trophy but WTF is going on. We have been the joke of the NFL for 6 f**king years. we are not Tampa or the Browns or Arizona or Detroit; we are the San francisco 49ers- five time Super Bowl Champions. Stop making excuse and defending this crap of a product we have been served. Show some back bone and demand better.
Enough is enough. Before you know it, all we have accomplished will be forgotten.

Yeah I know. But some people still want to believe in singFRAUD and jed YORKIE. Neither one fools me. I know we can't win with them. I've been saying it over and over but some don't want to listen.

Who's defending a 3-5 record? Nobody here is happy with that, but most of us haven't given up on the season yet. A win today and we're right back in the race.
We have talent on this roster now, so there's a lot to like about this team, despite its record. Compare this roster to the 2004 roster, for example. We're about 2 or 3 players away from competing for a Super Bowl. When was the last time we could say this? So yeah, our record isn't good, but we've been losing close games. We're almost there.

4 of our 5 loses are by 7pts or less(while playing 2 potential Super Bowl teams VERY well), so we're not THAT bad. Folks outside Ninerland see the record and think we absolutely suck, which is not the case.
See here, we found happiness in how few points in our loses and happy with the improvement of roaster '09 vs '04. They understand, they got it.
