Kaepernick is the only reason that I have hope...we no longer have to rely on our defense to be so stout to win games.
That being said...I think we missed our chance. Super Bowl appearances are rare. We've had 2 legit shots in a row.

Originally posted by KowboyKiller:Might be an overreaction, but it feels this way at this point. 2 years in a row now the 49ers should have won the super bowl and screwed it up by s**tting their pants at the worst times. Great teams find a way to play their best in their biggest moments, twice in a row now this team has choked. This feels far worse than the stretch from 95-97 when they should've won at least one super bowl but came up empty.
With Baalke, Harbaugh and Kap, as well as the defensive and offensive pieces in place it appears the future is bright, but super bowl losing teams always seem to fade into oblivion and haven't come back to win in the next few years since the 70's. Will we be the ones to break that cycle? Who knows. All I know is right now I feel absolutely sick through and through.

Originally posted by SnakePlissken:That's a cute saying and I've heard it a lot but here's what's wrong with it - it's totally unrealistic. Life is filled with failure. How one deals with failure is probably more important than how one deals with success. The Patriots, Cowboys, Steelers, Giants and now the Niners have at least one or more Super Bowl losses. Would anyone really call those teams loser teams? Of course not. Now we know what it's like to lose a Super Bowl. It doesn't feel good. Our team has laid that feeling on other fan bases five times. Now we know.
Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser.
