It's been a while since this helmet graced a Super Bowl, eh?

As we count down the days toward the 49ers' long-awaited return to the Super Bowl, why not spend some time looking back fondly at the team's glorious history, to past championship teams and some others who came oh-so-close? 

While most of the '00s were quite forgettable for the franchise and its fans alike, quite a few of us are old enough to remember the team's sustained run of excellence from 1981 to the late '90s.

The Niners won at least 10 games every season from 1983 to 1998, a stretch of 16 consecutive seasons, and made the playoffs in all but one of those years. Overall, they've advanced to six Super Bowls and 15 NFC Championship Games, so there have been many seasons where they were either the very best in the league or among the top contenders for the crown.

The following is one man's list of the top 10 49ers teams in history. Enjoy and feel free to share your memories, opinions and disagreements in the comments.
