For me it was the Kyle Williams fumble. I am 23 and i never really got to experience much of the glory days. I did see Steve Young play but i was pretty young. I was also at the game Kyle Williams fumbled so it hurt bad.

Probably the Kyle Williams second fumble. The first one I knew was going to happen and felt bad afterward for jinxing it. The second one got me and I friggin died. I can't believe he ever returned punts after that.
Losing to the Packers in 97 was bad too. I just remember we couldn't do s**t in that game and it seemed so easy to the Packers to beat us.
The 97' Loss was all Mariucci's fault, we had a hot Terry Kirby who had been filling in for an injured Garrison Hearst but Mooch played Hearst more and he clearly wasn't himself and that made the 49ers one dimensional and the packers played nickel formation all game because they knew we couldn't run the ball on them. Shoulda started Kirby and shoulda kept running the ball with Kirby to keep Farve off the field. Our defense that game looked really slow even though they were number one all year, they played like they were a step behind Antonio Freeman, I swear Antonio Freeman only stood out vs the 49ers for whatever reason. vs other teams Freeman was above average but vs the 49ers, he became Jerry Rice North.
Thats interesting. I was too young at the time to really understand why we got whooped but I remember hating that game. Makes more sense now.
