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

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.
Dude, Kap has a general downward trend since the first game against Chicago. The NE game being the exception.
So he's getting worse except for the time he got better and did something (4 TDs), Alex Smith has never done.

Ahh! Young sucks! Put in Elvis! Put in ELVIS!!!
Young can't be relied upon! Our 1994 Super Bowl dreams have just been CRUSHED!
The thing from that game, outside of Young wanting to fight George, that still sticks with me is Charlie Garner not even getting touched on just about every run. Take the first Lynch TD in sunday's game and multiple it by like 5. I was too young for the 49-3 Giant game in 1986, so this game is still the worst performance I have seen by a championship caliber Niners Team.

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.
i didn't list them because they didn't make the conference championship game

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.
I still remember that game. And, yes, it still hurts like hell.
