    I mean the Niners were giving away tix to their home games just three years ago.

    The Titans just made it to the AFCCG with their quarterback completely SEVEN passes.

    It bothers me that this team with all the great players over the last decade plus couldn't even just luck into an appearance in the conference title game. Just an appearance is all I'm asking for at this point. I just don't get it.

    Our coaching staff was that bad to the point where the football gods couldn’t even allow us one fluke. Think about it.

    No because Garrett was simply incapable of having his team ready to play big games against good opponents. They weren’t prepared mentally because they had no true leader who inspired confidence and they weren’t equipped with a scheme and plays designed to attack the other team’s weakness. Under Garrett, Dallas played exactly like the Ravens did yesterday almost every time the season was on the line. That is 100% lack of leadership and poor coaching.

    The worst part is we kept the coaching for a decade that couldn’t do it.

    Let's just hope our fortunes change under this new regime. Garrett just wasn't a big time coach and neither was Wade.

    It cannot be overstated enough the harm Jerry did to this franchise holding on to Garrett for this long. There were several opportunities to dump Garrett over the years and get guys like Vrabel or Shanahan. This team didn't need a HOF head coach, they just needed a slight upgrade and we would have ended the NFCCG streak by now. It just sucks he waited until all the players are due for big contracts to finally get a new HC.

    We haven’t been to the NFC Championship game in many years! OMG! Who knew? Why hasn’t someone mentioned this before?

    Last ten years feels like a fog of incompetence and denial. Jerry's loyalty to JG was and is so strange to me.

    Well if you’re like Jerry, the long drought just means we’re due! Next year, boys. Always next year!

    The football gods will only hit the fluke button for strong defenses. If we would have had a strong defense for the last eleven years we would have made two NFCC games by now.

    that is because garrett was worse than a coin flip when it comes to critical decisions. give him credit, he found new ways to lose the close ones.

    That team is gone. Forget about it as it’s just an effort in futility to keep bringing it up. Embrace the future.

    no. We been the fighting Jerry's with Garrett the clapper heading up the clown show. What did we expect? lol.... NOW that we flushed the turd known as the Clapper and his staff down the turlet, we should be greatly improved fundamentally at least. That will give us better odds alone. FUNDAMENTALS.

    With a dysfunction that surrounded this team it's a no-brainer that we didn't make it although we're only one win away from getting in to the playoffs that's even sadder I mean we lost some close games this year that last year we won that might not be the problem it's the ones that we should have easily one that we screwed up badly

    Very depressing. The Titans are hot now, and SF was rested and Minny looked tired. SF was awesome all year too. They beat GB by 30 and took Balty to the wire in Balty. Shanny can coach.

    Collinsworth said it best.....had Seattle had scored when they stopped them on the one foot line in the last game, they win the division...that means they had a home game, and NO’s had a bye, and SF no HFA. Funny how things work out.

    I am so glad Jerry finally told Jason and his staff to fluke off.
