This post makes me giggle I hope someone would like to join in their conversation about how much pain this era has brought them and tell them about their chances regarding "the hope of tomorrow and of that elusive sixth championship."
In my opinion the 49ers will begin to rapidly decline in 2014, many of their key players are old now, Bowman is injured, and Kaepernick is a proven failure in important games. I think last year was their best chance to win it all one last time...
It is now time for the Hawks in NFC, I really like our chances to lock down the NFC this season. I think we'll do it even easier than last season and retain our home field advantage once again... Looking at our schedule I think 14-2 is possible if everyone stays healthy.
Funny to read something like this about how desperate they are to win again... they haven't won it all since the salary cap era right???...
Here's a quote from their OP in this post:
"I am not saying to stop caring; though, I bet we have all had that moment, arrest, stupid decision, horrid loss, that has shaken our faith to the point of ostracizing ourselves from the team. That honestly says a great deal more about ourselves than it does about the organization's woes. The sad truth, we are, in some ways, masochistic. Some of us break down plays, over and over, to seek the truth behind the defeat. As if we must know it. We cannot exist without it. It is so damn important we spend time, long periods to be certain, over it. We will justify criminal action and do out of poorly constructed rationale of personal rights of the accused. Even when it is clear that some wrong has been committed. For we, the court of public opinion, are the judge, jury, and executioner here. Not the NFL, not society, not anybody else. Others convince themselves this is some sort of ruse or insidious game that the world is playing against the 49ers. Whatever the cause, it robbed us of the glory of another championship, and instead caused us pain.
The truth, as far as I can see it, no one championship, no ten championships will make up for the pain of this era. We have gotten so damn close that it is beyond frustrating. We may never in our lifetimes get back to where we are right now. There is, however, the hope of tomorrow and of that elusive sixth championship. "the Quest for Six" is a catchy ad-driven idea. How about, though, we strive for the next. Or better yet, in our era, "the one ring that will rule them all". That is, at least, until we go after the next one."
