Let me make this easy for you. When evaluating a teams performance in a certain decade, which is what the OP was doing, you have to wait for the entire decade to complete before giving grading them on it. That's what we are doing. We are evaluating the 49ers performance for each decade. The 2010s aren't complete yet so you dont include the 10s. But to answer your question, yes the 49ers played IN eight decades, but not FOR eight decades. They played for 6 1/2 full decades plus two seasons.
