For the past eight seasons, being a 49ers fan has been tumultuous to say the least. For every good game the team plays, they get our hopes up, only to disappoint us with an equally memorable bad game. Since 2002, the team's longest winning streak was three games, back in 2006. Over the past three seasons, the team has done a decent job of building through the draft, yet only a few of the picks have blossomed, such as Patrick Willis, Joe Staley, Frank Gore and Vernon Davis. That isn't to say that the underachieving players won't ever turn the corner, but sometimes it goes beyond the players and even the coaches. The 49ers have been plagued by the poor management whose ineptitude has trickled down to tarnish one of the greatest franchises not only in football, but in all of sports.
In order to get a true grasp of what has gone wrong with the team, I will point out ten items that have gone awry in for the scarlet and gold. This team is on the right track to relevance, but certain things will have to change...and by change I mean for the better.
