Jeff Garcia and Terrell Owens
Starting in 1983, the 49ers posted a winning record in an incredible 16 straight seasons.
Many fans that were blessed to witness the Niners in the 80s and 90s thought this magnificent ride would never end. How could it? Every year, the 49ers delivered in spectacular fashion.
However, after the Jeff Garcia and Terrell Owens era, things took a dramatic step backwards.
When the best players on the offense were Tim Rattay, Brandon Lloyd, Arnaz Battle and Kevin Barlow, there was a huge problem.
Fans were doomed in the late 2000s. San Francisco somehow managed to go eight straight seasons without posting a record over .500. The glory days were long gone, but the faithful quickly learned winning doesn't last forever.
Although, with this current squad, it should be noted that the losing days are just a thing of the past.
