This may be a bit pre-mature and I'm not talking about this upcoming season per se, but I'm referring to maybe the next 3-5 seasons...
Reason I ask is this. I think I could speak for alot of us when I say, I'd rather lose the NFC Championship then lose the Superbowl.
That being said, if we do make the playoffs this year... it's a brand new season and anyones game at that point.
There seems to be a large concensus on the board that we will make the playoffs this year. If we do make it past the first round of playoffs and we got to the NFC Championship, I would be pumped but at the same time, I don't know that I would have the same Faith (110% We got this in the bag mentality) that I had with Montana at the helm at all of our other SuperBowls, and Young to a lesser extent.
I would rather lose the NFC Championship all day rather than sully and tarnish our perfect super bowl record. We are the remaining perfect team in terms of Super Bowl wins for any team with more than 2 Appearances I beleive.
Do you think our record is in Jeopardy if we were to make it within the next 3-5 seasons or so?
