Today was a nightmare: Two of the three teams I hate are playing in the Super Bowl. The last one this bad was SB XXX with the Cowboys vs. the Steelers. Still, this horrid matchup struck a chord with me. On one hand, we have the packers going for #4, and on the other, the steelers going for their 7th. Over the last 16 years, our 5 trophies are beginning to look less impressive. Other teams are catching up, new teams are competing, and we're still stuck in this rut of mediocrity. As each year goes by, the greatness of the niners becomes more like that of a footnote as other franchises reach glory.
So my question, when do you think we'll be the ones holding the Lombardi again? I hope Harbaugh is the one to lead us on the right path again, but so many things need to go right in order for that to happen. Teams like the browns scare the s**t out of me, because they prove that it's possible for a great franchise to become that s**tty for such a large amount of time. Do you think our future is as bleak as that, or do you think we're destined for better?
