Perspective
Thanks for this. Wanted to post the same thing but with win/loss records during the years we won the Superbowl.
11 for 23, 99 yards, 0 TDs, 2 INTs

- Steve Young's stat line from October 2, 1994
Or Joe Montana being outplayed and outclassed by Jim Everett on December 18, 1988?

Added to the stat line
The Niners got completely wiped out by the Giants, 49-3, in the playoffs and that same team with very few personnel changes went on to win two Super Bowls in the next three years.
Denial is bliss isn't it. We are in trouble. No doubt about it. We have lots of injuries, and we have an inexperienced QB that continues on his downward trend.

You make this sound so bad. I am as real as you get and always tell it like it is but we are not as bad as what you make it out to be. We are just not consistent. We can not generate anything consistently on offence. It shows having a QB change and it is something he is going to have to fix. The time it gets to get the play in and snap the ball is embarressing. We are still a very big contender in the playoffs. We got outplayed in every phase of the game last night. That is going to happen. It happened to Walsh's teams and it will happen to Harbaugh's. Personally I am done with this cute s**t we do on offense. Lets run the ball and be a traditional WCO.

Sounds like you're in denial about the team we have... And downward trend? Outclassing Brady in the house that Brady built is a trend downward? It may be raining outside but the forcast for this forum is fairweather.
I was living in KC in 1997. It was hard to show up to school the next day with my Niner coat on. There had been back and forth crap talking all week before that game.

I agree, but seriously, we have injuries at the worst time.

Dude, Kap has a general downward trend since the first game against Chicago. The NE game being the exception.

Two of those games were pretty meaningless late season games and the other two were early season games, can't compare them very close to a late season game that blows a first round bye. Also maybe you youngsters can't remember but those Montana led teams seemed to just have a switch to flip for the play-offs, they had quite a few late season games they didn't look that good then turned into monsters the minute the play-offs hit. Hard to compare those teams that had prolific offenses to our mid pack offense we have now.

Please. I guess time has a way of glossing. In '86, they got plastered 49-3 in the playoffs. In '87, they entered the playoffs with the league's #1 offense AND #1 defense and got knocked off in the first round by the Vikings.

Please, there weren't any 1986-1987 games listed of the four the OP put up. The four games are on the list and the teams involved are what I was commenting on. Comparing the current team to the 80's and 90's teams are like comparing apples to oranges.
