San Francisco 49ers fans have seen the full range of success and failure over the past few decades. There were the Super Bowl triumphs with Bill Walsh and George Seifert leading the way.
Superstars like Hall of Fame players Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice and Ronnie Lott brought five world championships to San Francisco.
Even the years following the great Montana and Young included stars like Jeff Garcia, Garrison Hearst, Bryant Young and Terrell Owens. The end was approaching, but the 49ers were competitive and diligently hung onto their dreams for more world championships.
Then, the 49ers slipped to the depths of the NFL. GMs Dwight Clark and Terry Donahue were unable to maintain the rich tradition of 49ers excellence. Many of their decisions helped to bring the franchise to its knees.
Players like Lawrence Phillips, Antonio Langham, Owen Pochman, Rashaun Woods and Jim Druckenmiller were brought in but could not measure up. The coaching carousel began, and until Jim Harbaugh was brought in, the franchise was in disarray.
The 49ers are now once again in the upper echelon of the NFL and fighting for world championships.
The 49er Faithful, as their fans are called, fully believe that their team will once again be on top of the football world.
Fan is short for fanatic, and the rabid fans of the 49ers are fully engaged and vocal in their support of their team. However, listening to 49ers fans can also be quite entertaining.
Sports are meant to be fun, so let's switch gears for a moment and enjoy. We will take a humorous look at some of the funny and not-so-funny things you might hear a 49ers fan say.
