Just curious what the general consensus is on this.
After almost a decade (which felt like a lifetime) of miserable football, I sometimes still feel like the 49ers' return to prominence is a shock to me.
Being so bad, for so long, and then to have a turnaround like they did in 2011; it just still leaves me stunned. I understand that the talent had been building for a while and that Harbaugh and company are a rock solid coaching unit, but I almost just got used to the 49ers being hopeless. There really was a time where there didn't seem to be a light at the end of that tunnel.
That said, I have yet to (and will not) take their recent success for granted. I don't think anyone can take it for granted after what we've been through as fans.
The games are back to being fun and I really can't seem to wipe the smile off my face. Whether it's watching a highlight, during the game, or just reading about them online, it's a constant reminder that this is how I grew to love 49ers football in the first place.
Enough of my rambling, in a nutshell, I'm just beyond ecstatic that this team is finally back!
