Also I wouldn't call this season an embarrassment exactly. It's not like were were 5-11 or anything. We did win the Super Bowl just the year before, and people can argue that past is the past till they are blue in the face, it still doesn't change that fact. It's hard to win SB's. It's called perspective guys. We should consider ourselves lucky. Yes, we failed to make the post-season, but you can't be winning everything every year. That's what makes the NFL so interesting and fun to watch.
And yes, the 49ers fans do feel like crap. Just go on their boards. two years ago they made it to the NFCCG and the this year the SB and lost in both. That's got to kill you as a fan. Knowing how difficult it is to get to that point and then have it taken away. Many of them know they might not get that chance again for a long time.

The games that we are supposed to win, we lose. Most of the time we are unprepared, unfocused, and unmotivated. This is the problem with the team. Motivation only comes when our backs are against the wall, or when we are underdogs. Add injuries and we are spiraling down. Although the Patriots play in a crap division, they blow them out of the water almost each and every time they see them. Don't play down to their competition.
I just want to see hard fought football played for 60 minutes, in all 16 games. Not the last 2 games of the season when we are 7-7 hoping for a playoff spot. We are way too talented for that.
The whole "it's hard to win in this league" statement is getting old as well. Everyone knows that.

ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo
Giants are 1st team in NFL history to lose first 2 games of season despite leading by 10 or more points in 4th quarter of each game (ELIAS).
As for the Giants, maybe it's just me, but I'm a little tired iof watching them crap themselves and having to "turn it on when it counts" just to make the playoffs, which doesn't work half the time anyway. People are hanging their hats on the past and the prior SB wins, as if they'd rather bask in the glow of those instead of seeing them win another one. No one should be giving them a free pass. I dont expect them to win the SB every year because that would be stupidly unrealisitic, but I'd sure like to see them be a legitimate contender for one every year, and folding after week 8 each and every year is not going to make it likely. I saw a lot of folks crying about the media not giving them "enough" respect in the past couple of seasons. While some of the perceived disrespect was in fact a bit harsh, look at the numbers. Up and down, up and down.....a good team, or even a great team, doesn't allow that kind of performance, and no one who gets paid for their opinions is going to slobber all over a team who cant consistently play 2-3 games in a row with good results.
